Beautiful decor, even better food – The lobster ravioli in champagne butter sauce with caviar is something to dream about. Almost as good was my fiance's bbq shrimp. We will remember this meal for a long time. Very romantic. Great everything. Don't skip this one.
Fabulous! – My husband I had our last lunch before going to the airport to return home. The mussels are the best I've ever had, to die for! We sat at the bar and had a great time with some of the local patrons. Julie, the bartender was great - very friendly and helpful as to the menu items.
Great Brunch - Try the Bacco Shrimp! – Fantastic ambiance, service, and presentation. The Bacco shrimp was the best thing we had during our visit to New Orleans. I also enjoyed the crawfish omelet. Definitely not crowded for brunch and an overall excellent dining experience.
Romantic – I took my girlfriend for Valentines day. Great complimentary valet parking at the W. Staff is very friendly. Food is excellent. The salmon and lobster raviolli were delicious. Entrees range from $20 to $30. Great place to take a date or for a special occasion.
Highly recommend – My girlfriend and I had a excelent experience on Bacco Novemeber 25, 2006. After frustrated experience on Galatoires (poor services; For Example: Galatoires required dress code they provided me a jacket with a hole on it and the waiter threw out the napkin or table cloth on the table front of us meanwhile he was cleaning the utensil ( it was ridicules to pay so much money to receive these mistreats) . On the other hand, the food and services on Bacco was amazing. The table manner from the Bacco staff were perfect; For Example: serving the food from the right side, the tasting of the wine, removing of the unused utensil by every course of the food, etc) I will say Bacco has very well trained people. And we were very pleased with the Bacco and I would like to recommend to everyone who visit New Orleans.
Great service. – On a Sunday night, my wife & I had an hour before our Bacco dinner reservation and wandered upon the Chart Room next door. It was a cool dive with a great juke box in the back corner with selections from Frank Sinatra to Roy Orbison to the Allmand Bros. and many others. It turned out to be a romantic diversion and a great place for a drink & people watching before dinner. Bring some cash as they don't take plastic. At Bacco, we were seated promptly & the wait staff was excellent & friendly. My wife ordered the Lobster Ravioli which she considered one of the best meals she'd ever had. I had the Tuna but it did not compare to my wife's fare which I tried; it was delicious.
Italian delicacies are crafted with unique, luxurious ingredients at this romantic eatery. – In Short
Neoclassical architecture, storied antiques, cherubs and lush murals adorn the walls and ceilings. Vaulted skylights bathe one dining room, while others overlook historic Chartres Street or the W Hotel's tropical courtyard. Extravagant ingredients dress up the dishes. Highlights include mussels steamed in sweet vermouth, caviar-topped lobster and shrimp ravioli in champagne butter sauce and black truffle fettuccine. The blueberry and white chocolate bread pudding is made with Nocello walnut liqueur.
Great gourmet Italian in the French Quarter – Post-Katrina it's prompt seating with no reservation. Brought 2 guests and everything ordered was excellent. The calamari appetizer with feta and marinara was very tender, done to perfection and seasoned correctly. The house special salad was very flavorful and unique. My entree was shrimp ravioli with lobster sauce, the best I've ever had. The raviolis are hand made and thin -- not too starchy or doughey. The filling was all shrimp & the lobster sauce had several good sized chunks of real lobster. I ordered a molded chocolate pudding type dessert (can't remember name) but it was to die for. My guests enjoyed their entrees as well. Good wine selection, but the decor doesn't say Italian unless you're a Modigliani fan. Service was very attentive altho one server seemed a bit snooty presumably because 1 of my guests was in a polo shirt and jeans.
10 cent Martinis!!!! – At lunch this restaurant has 10 cent martinis-- that alone is worth the trip. The antipasto and salads were delicious. The food was good, but it wasn't over the top good if you are a foodie. Service is outstanding. 10 cent Martinis is too much fun !!!!
Beautiful – Refreshingly different from the otherwise taudry side of the french quarter. When you have had enough of the frilly antiques, this place is a nice tuscan refuge. The food is wonderful and almost worth the price. The wine list is overpriced, but offers great choices.
I would go again simply to enjoy the beauty of the place though.
