Bacco-Boston

'This spacious, romantic eatery pairs contemporary Italian cuisine with great views of Boston's historic North End. Bacco's first floor is home to a beautiful mahogany and granite bar where patrons drink from an extensive wine list and catch sports highlights on one of two flat-screen TVs. The restaurant's French doors are open during warmer months, allowing guests to feel like part of the action along Salem Street. Diners on the more formal second level devour plates of linguini carbonara, chicken cacciatore and lobster ravioli while enjoying views of the city.'- Citysearch Boston

"Tremendous staff and ambiance! Incredibly delicious food and selection. We had 4 cocktails, appetizer, 2 entrees and desert...bill was only $75! I highly recommend the Shrimp Scampi as it was the best I've ever had! Make reservations!"

"Went for New Year's Eve (which is also our wedding anniversary) Very pleased they had their full menu available. We were seated right at the time of our reservation. Waiter was helpful with menu, very personable and anticipated our needs. We were never rushed. The EVOO with balsamic was tasty and the waiter quickly honored our request for gated parmesan to add to this. Had two appetizers, found aroncini to be underwhelming. Salmon and asparagus were cooked perfectly and the carbonara was delicious. Generous portions but not ridiculously large. Thrilled that they have our favorite chianti. Atmosphere was perfect, great lighting, and while tables are close together I couldn't hear conversations around us. It was vibrant but relaxed. Would recommend for locals an visitors."

"We went to Bacco before the Bruins game the day after Christmas. We had a myriad of dishes; salmon, chicken piccata, veal saltimbocca, spaghetti and meatballs and seafood risotto. Everyone loved there meal. We also had a few appetizers. The service was friendly and efficient. It was a wonderful experience."

"Worst meal I have ever had. Do we not know how to make veal saltimbocca or food in general? The portion was TINY and I will never return. Such garbage; and the rap blaring from the kitchen was a nice final touch."

"We ordered calamari, butternut squash ravioli, special mushroom ravioli.
Calamari was very good. Two ravioli were also good. It is definitely a one time go place. You won't be disappointed if not highly pleased.
On the other hand, our server was slow and would forget everything. We got oil as soon as we sat down with the menu and water but bread didn't come until appetizers were on the table. Then we asked for a second round of the drink when food arrived and we dI'd not receive the drink till we had finished the meal."

"Service was ok, seems the last few places I have eaten in north end are all about turning the table as quickly as possible. Rapid fire specials, what do you want for apps, here's the recommendation from waiter...before apps are half gone the entrees come out and the apps whisked away.... the room was 80% empty (Monday night) so there were no patrons waiting for our table, nor were we there late (6-8:30) -- in my opinion the food was good but not amazing. Would I eat there again, yes, but I would still venture out to try some of the other dozens of places in North End. I think it's average, good, italian food. I had sausage n penne pasta and guests had the seafood carbonara which looked great and had lots of seafood on it."

"Bacco is our favorite Italian restaurant to visit in the north end when we visit Boston! The food is delicious and the service is always amazing. Makes for a great night out! :)"

"After making a reservation we were told the full party must be present to be seated, but also said it was still going to be a wait. After 25 minutes past, one of the hostess approached us at the bar and said we were up next. Once we checked back with the hostess she said we lost our reservations and had to wait. Told us to take our choice to wait 10 more minutes or go find another restaurant. Needless, to say it was another 45 minute wait. First and last time at Bacco."

"We love going to Bacco. We often take friends or make a reservation when we have tickets to a show or a game at TD Garden. It's an easy walk from Bacco to The Garden so we only have to park once to do both.
Try the Potato Gnocchi. It's not usually my go to dish but here it is consistently wonderful. It is a favorite of our daughter's so I gave it a try on one visit and I have been recommending it ever since. My favorite is the Seafood Risotto. It is usually the "special Risotto of the day" and it is wonderful!
If your group is small (2-4 people) then try to get a window table on the first floor. If the weather is nice the windows/doors will be open and its a great atmosphere as you people watch the pedestrians in the North End. If your group is larger you will be sitting upstairs. We have made reservations for a Holiday Party and they sat us upstairs and it was for a large group to still be in a midsize to small restaurant.
Every time I have been there (and it's more than I can count) the bar has always attracted plenty of people. The drinks are well made and it always seems to be a popular place.

"We had a great time at Bacco. There are so many Italian restaurants in the North End, so it was hard to chose, but I took a chance on Bacco, and we loved it. The food was excellent, and the prices were good. I will return!"

"We dine in the North End frequently and have tried many of the restaurants, but keep going back to Bacco. The atmosphere at the bar is fun and the food delicious. You don't feel rushed and the waitstaff and hostesses seem to really care that the customers are happy."
