I love to go there as they have a really nice PIZZAS and they offer generous portions: if you take an entrée and a main dish you don't have space for the desert.

The waiter is always happy to see us (we have been there 3 times) and there is a very good atmosphere...

I will comeback again.

It took over 30 minutes for 4 cocktails and we were the ONLY people in the restaurant. Mediocre cocktails that were normally more expensive than even the 5 star Santa Clara. We got the happy hour promotion so at buy one get one free the cocktails were still $28 for 4. We don’t mind paying for quality and efficient service. This was neither.

The place itself is well decorated and familiar, but the most important, food is supper taste. We had lasagna and cannelloni with vegetables and cheese, plus a bottle of wine and a desert.

The staff is attentive and profesional. The pasta is homemade....worht to try is you visit Cartagena.

We went there because the reviews said it was a good place. From the outside it doesn’t look like a great place. Once inside the mood was nice, servers were very friendly and helpful.
We had some bruschetta which we thought was really good. Our kids ordered Pizza Margarita and 4meat pizza. They were both amazing. We also ordered some tagliatelle with seafood and it was tasteful and well prepared. We had a really good time. We would definitely go there again.

Drawn here by the positive reviews, Bacco Trattoria spectacularly failed to meet the expected standard. Take a minute to read all the poor reviews and, combined, they describe our experience.

Food was cold and lacking in fresh or tasty ingredients. Except, maybe, the pasta which was good.

The pizza was bland, soft, and yellow. The cheese was not mozzarella. The herbs were dried oregano instead of the basil that was advertised. An extra topping of olives for the pizza was forgotten. When we asked for them, they were scattered cold onto the top.

Puttanesca lacked capers, anchovies and garlic. So it tasted like a bland sauce from a jar. When I asked where the anchovies were, the waiter and the Maitre D discussed the issue and then ignored us.

The pesto lacked any flavor of pine nuts, garlic and Parmesan.

All the pasta dishes were cold. All the portions were starter sized, despite being mains generally priced $30.000 upwards.

The bread served as a side with the mains was soft and bland.

The bill optimistically included a 10% service charge which I had to ask to be adjusted. In Colombia, the restaurant is required to ask the customer, not the other way around.

Avoid.
