“You can’t go wrong” with anything on the “pretty darn authentic” Italian menu at this “charming” neighborhood trattoria in Noe Valley, known for its “exceptional” housemade pasta, “daily risotto” and old-country wines; moreover, the “warm, friendly” style ensures the regulars “enjoy getting fed.”


What makes a successful family is what makes a successful restaurant: the people involved. And when dealing with Italian restaurants, the difference between family and food is very slim. That’s why Bacco Ristorante has been so successful for so long. Executive Chef Vincenzo Cucco was trained at the acclaimed food academy of Palermo, and manager Luca Zanet has worked in top establishments in Italy, London, Florida, and San Francisco including Palio D’Asti, North Beach Restaurant, Splendido, and Kuleto’s. You’ll be in good hands at Bacco Ristorante.

Noe Valley is one of SF’s most charming neighborhoods and Bacco, tucked away just off of 24th St, is an Italian food refuge in the city’s pseudo-suburban corner. Fresh risottos and pasta made daily in house highlight a menu that nails favorites like squid ink pasta with spicy calamari and lightly breaded veal scallopini with prosciutto and mozzarella. Salute!
