Started off a little rough with menu full of food and replacement menu had two sections of appetizers and no entrees. Server was great and she apologized for the start and bought us two glasses of wine that we had ordered

It was a bit noisy with a larger party in the room but we had a booth which was great for us, food was wonderful, our waitress appeared to be very busy and we would have ordered another glass of wine each but she didn’t come back to our table before we were done with our meal. We will come back as we really enjoy our meals there

Bacco is a delightful place to go. Beautiful decor, interesting menu, very professional wait staff. Seating in the booth was comfortable. And the assistant manager came by to greet us, and introduced herself! It bothers me when the management does not introduce themselves as it seems like some random person stopping at the table talking to us. Not at Bacco, nice introduction!
I enjoyed it so much I am going back this weekend with another group of friends for another meal.

Food is always amazing, the hosts and hostesses are so accommodating and welcoming, and the waitresses are so kind and elegant; better vibe here most places you can go to. Time before we sat at the bar and had almost an equal experience. One of my Personal favorite places.

This was a place I have never been and came highly recommended. Although the fish selections were limited the food was excellent. Really enjoyed the "Bacco" take on the brussels sprouts. My pasta dish with crab was done perfectly. My companion had the tips with risotto, a little too creamy and heavy for a summer dish, and my other quest had pasta with chicken that was excellent.
They were out of most desserts but we had tiramisu which I would do again and Limoncello cake was excellent.
Our server was very good and knowledgeable.
I will definitely be back!

Stopped in after a lacrosse tournament and had a great meal. Crabcakes were excellent as well as the usual Italian dishes. Self serve wine was pretty cool and our server was awesome. She was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. Definitely will be back when in the area.

First of all, AMAZING atmosphere and food. We sat outside and from the hostess to our server, everyone was so friendly and accommodating. We celebrated our anniversary there this week as a family and our 9-year-old was in a mood from the moment we arrived, but the experience was so awesome he was bright and cheerful by the end of dinner. Kid portions are awesome! He had enough for leftovers but we’re always worried the children’s portions are going to be tiny. Not this time! For drinks, two appetizers and entrees it wasn’t as expensive as I anticipated. Our server was James and he was awesome!! I wasn’t sure what to get but he had some amazing recommendations and the food is amazing. James always checked in on us and was so, so, so nice and personable. I really think he’s the reason our 9-year-old really opened up and was in a better mood by the end of dinner. Thank you guys! Such a great time, I can’t wait to go back!

I reserved a high top for 3 at 8:00pm. We arrived on time and were seated at a booth by a hostess that wasn’t friendly at all. We really desired what we had reserved, I have five knee surgeries and the son is 6’3” and big. My wife and sons meals were good. Mine actually had more discussion beforehand because of celiac disease and a desire for temperature at medium well. The middle of the fillet was purple way undercooked and the cheese was hard on top and the potatoes were cold. The server who was very nice said they would make a whole new one but when he came back out it was the same one cooked a little more. The weird part was the saying it would be a new one and coming out with the same one saying “they were running out of steaks”. Wasn’t really expecting a new one but would have thought it would have been a better idea to not say a new one and come back with the same one. By the time I got the new steak I just put it in a to go box. We usually go to 111 main but just recently had been coming to your restaurant from word of mouth. This visit was less than decent. I’m sure it was just an anomaly.

The hostess asked for my name several times before she located our Open Table reservation, but the manager was able to locate it. Other than that we loved it. Great food and service. First visit but not the last.

We were seated right away and given menus but then we waited for a server for more then 9 minutes and finally asked if we could at least get some water. It was at that point the waitress we asked for water said sorry let me get your server, and found the waitress who was then going to be waiting on us. This was our 3rd visit but we had an out of state guest and a little embarrassed by how we raved about this restaurant. I guess everyone has an off day.
