Pasta dishes are also popular with diners at Uncle Bacala’s, with options including the baked penne gratin with pancetta and cheese in a creamy sauce and the zucchini linguini fra diavolo, all of which can be made gluten free.

Always amazing. Food cannot be beat
I had requested outdoor seating. When I arrived they did not tell me we would have to be seated indoors.
The food was not really worth the money. $29. For a less than mediocre salad😢
Took my husband out to eat. He is very special to me and I thought a little surprise would be fun. It was a big hit
Excellent food, great service, beautiful outdoor space for a nice day/night.
It was amazing!
The service and the food are always excellent that's why we keep coming back
Food was delicious! Outside dining was spacious! Our waiter, Jared was terrific! Will be back soon.
The food is superb & consistently good. Try the Lasagna. It is the closest to homemade you’ll find & it is delicious. The service is really good,efficient & pleasant.
The food was delicious and the service was great! Good strong drinks too 🙂
Room way too crowded for covid 19 era
The food was delicious and the patrons were seated a comfortable distance from each other. Our server was polite and attentive to our needs.
My wife bad I had the most enjoyable and safe dinner the other night in one of uncle Bacalas heated igloos . To say that just the food was wonderful would be an understatement as you would expect nothing less. The wait staff were so amazing , masked and accommodating as was Eva the long standing manager who couldn’t do enough to make us feel at home . Definitely a keeper for a wonderful and most enjoyable dinner with family .
Excellent service! Excellent food! We will return!
Barbara is a terrific waitress! Everything was great.
Love this restaurant
The food & service is always exceptional & the atmosphere is very pleasant.
Had a wonderful time at Uncle Bacalas. The wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious.
Love all the menu choices and the kitchen is always willing to tweak things especially if your looking for keto friendly meals. Food is consistently good and if your are looking for a little sugar in your life nothing is better than the cotton candy surprise!!!
Great neighborhood gem for Italian seafood. the Ciopino is my favorite - an italian seafood stew containing shrimp, mussels, clams and tilapia filet. The bread comes with a tomato based spread. The servers are very friendly.
Always delicious! Was a little disappointed that we had to ask for the cotton candy at the end and it wasn’t brought right out with the check, but other than that, the food and service couldn’t be better!
Great experience and food for my family up from Florida.
They loved the food.
In addition to lunch, I got takeout for the family. They love Uncle Bacala’s linguini with white clam sauce and the calamari fritti.
Poor service. We had an issue with the order and service. Not very apologetic staff.
But when I went on president day they decided to charge. Dinner prices for lunch
That is not right or fair
So for second time I have been there it was not stress free
The food was delicious, and were very accommodating with allergies. The staff couldn't have been friendlier.
Just love this restaurant. Cozy & friendly. Owner constantly has an eye on everything to make sure you’re taken care of and happy makes you feel special. Food is delicious and plentiful.
Food is always good.
Table was close to the front door and near the hostess podium. Every time customers came in and left we all got a cold blast of air. Needed to wear my coat at the table. The service was average. Felt like we were being rushed through our meal. Food was very salty .
Great food & great atmosphere! Will go back!
Everything was excellent
We went for an early dinner. Service was great as was the food. Everyone was friendly, even the valet.
Great prix-fixe lunch and food is outstanding. Excellent salads. Salmon was fabulous, perfectly grilled, and chicken parmigiana was very well prepared. Desserts were varied and delicious.
Good local spot.
This was the 2nd time I've been to this restaurant in the last 5 weeks. This time I went on a weeknight and ordered from the pre-fix menu. There were many choices - couldn't make up my mind. Finally I decided on zucchini soup, chicken franchaise, and cheesecake for dessert. OMG - the soup was one of the best I've ever had (I've never had zucchini soup before and this was amazing!) and the portions were huge! My husband loved his meal too- I don't remember what type of soup he ordered but he had the sea bass for his meal and cheesecake for dessert. He said everything was delicious! The price was extremely reasonable too. Our experience was amazing - from the valet, to the hostess, to our incredible waiter, to the chef preparing such delicious food! We had a great time and decided this is our new favorite restaurant. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend!
Always great food and service
Great veal parmigiana
Only one slight problem. I received an email about a promotion as well as a post on Facebook. No one
was aware of it so they had to call the marketing manager. It's still posted on Facebook.
The owner was kind enough to honor it but if it isn't legit it should be deleted.
We were invited by Uncle Bacalas to participate in a special offer on National Spaghetti Day. The food was great. We both had spaghetti and meatballs and shared the wonderful Apple Salad.
Everything was great, and delicious
But they lost one of two Giftcards ($100 GiftCard )I gave the waiter, I I didn’t even get a discount or consideration for their mistake
Our family had our New Year's Day dinner at Uncle Bacala. The food was delicious and the service was remarkable. The drinks made us all happy. Thank you and continued success in 2020.
