An Italian Gem , A True Find!

JHW | Nov 19, 2010 03:13 AM

As I was buying wine at the Arlington Liquor Store I saw that a menu was displayed, and as I looked it over I realized that it was the real deal! The restaurant Bacco was next door in the shopping center across from Adams at 718 Duchess Turnpike. I had lunch and was bowled over. It's family owned. The owner is the chef, an Italian that has cooked primarily in Europe. Last night I took my wife and another couple so they could see. Everything is homemade. Homemade bread arrives with three different olive oil infusions and then treat yourself to a real Italian dinner. A real sophisticated Italian dinner in a soft candle lit space. I had last night the most delacate calamari and then homemade pasta with mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari. I wished I had tried the octopus or the chicken rolled with proscutto and mozzarella. By the way, as a gift from the chef we were given the freshest mozzarella that I have ever had in my life with red peppers, and prosciutto. Only one dessert was ordered and that one was phylo wrapped around molten chocolate. This is a true find, and I offer this to all the Chowhounds that have helped me in the past. Their telephone number is 845-454-1882. I have spent many pleasurable hours in Italy and this little restaurant brings back memories.
