“A nice place”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Visited here for the first time since they moved and I have to say the environment is much improved. The old place was a bit like somebody's front room but this is a proper restaurant now (and they have hotel rooms). Quite an extensive menu but not overly cheap for a village restaurant but they are not expensive. Pizzas and pastas are reasonable in portion size and everything is well cooked. We know some people who dine here every week so that says something about the place and the food.
We enjoyed our meal but, even though there was nothing wrong at all with the food, service, furnishings, wine etc, it just doesn't stand out as a memorable meal/place - everything seems to be good not great - maybe we need to visit again (and we probably will!). Absolutely no issues or complaints so give it a try and make your own mind up.

“excellent to poor”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I find writing this report difficult as we have visited this restaurant almost every week for the last 12 mongths. Always excellent with fresh fish. The head waiter Guisepie left and since he left stanards have droppeddramatically. Fish being questionable. Even the pizzas not as expected. On our last vistI had a fillet steak with grizzle!! Vegetablers served in a very small dish. Roast potatoes which consisted of two animic halves. Very poor. It appears to have a change
of staff and a severe drop in standards. Very regrettable I would not recommend this venue.

gianluca s, Owner at Per Bacco Italian Restaurant & B/B, responded to this review, March 7, 2014
I am very disapointed and c,oncerned with this review as this person has been a frequent customer, I can,t understand as to why on the night in question there was absolutely no complaint from him about any of the food or service.??, On this particular visit it was one of his guests birthday, and as a nice guesture I gave a cake. they also have enjoyed a 50% discount on all the food, on all visits, with their tastcard. I am upset as to why this customer after always praising my restaurant, would write such a bad report, and hope that anyone reading it, will look back at all the exceptional ones from our customers

“re...last review”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

I just had to comment on reading the previous review.........are they sure they were commenting on Per Bacco!?, I dread to think what kind of Italian restaurants they have frequented previously.
Expensive? no!...unless you are comparing it to a cheap chain..Pizza express etc you get what you pay for, everything in Per bacco is freshly cooked, ., I have been several times, and enjoyed every meal, plenty to choose from on their extensive menu, from Pizza;s, pasta (NOT cheap pasta), fish dishes, meat dishes, etc, the ambience is lovely, warm and welcoming, as are the staff there, and if youve been there before...they remember you.., you just have to look back at the previous experiences, to see that whoever wrote that review, doesnt apreciate good food and service!.

“Expensive Italian restaurant”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Very expensive and limited menu unless you like pizza. The pasta dishes were reasonably priced but were lacking in meat variations. The Carne dishes were expensive, I cannot believe the price for a piece of chicken with sauce and a few vegetables cost in the region of £13.00 at least. What a rip off. No draught beer available. It was nice to try the Italian lager though but at a cost. Cannot understand how they can justify the prices.
The restaurant is like walking into someone's front room. Don't go too early as you may encounter children but you will enjoy it if you like pizza or cheap pasta and don't drink alcohol.
