A nice Italian restaurant in the middle of the town. While it is nice and the food is good a very basic Italian menu in my opinion and a bit pricey for the Pizza and Pasta.

Was a little disappointed after reading very good reviews. Non pasta options were expensive. My meal was enjoyable but nothing special, a friend had pizza and thought it was average. Nice decor and a good atmosphere considering it was midweek

A little bit of Italy in the heart of Ballincollig. I regularly dine at Bacco with my husband and we love it. Pizzas are divine but the lasagne is my favourite dish... followed by the gorgeous pavlova! The complimtary bread given while you wait is deliciously sinful. Staff here are very friendly and the owner is always in attendance. Toilets... More

My work colleagues and I have chosen this restaurant twice now for our annual Christmas lunch. Management have opened the restaurant specially. The staff have been superb. And the food is amazing - twenty plus of us and not one person with a gripe of any kind. It's also very good value. If I was a Ballincollig resident I would... More

After a long walk around Blarney Castle Gardens and a scaring visit to the top of Blarney Castle we were starving. The three of us all had different meals and we all loved it. We tasted each others meals and it was just heavenly. Price was very reasonable and the lovely friendly waitress were very professional and attentive without hovering... More

Are here a while back, the carbonara was really really bland and lacklustre, which is a pity as it is a simple dish to make and when done right, it's incomparable! The pizza was only OK as well, and the whole place is overpriced to be honest. Venture into Wilton to Gallo & Galetti, or to Il Padrino in the... More
