Set in a lovely square in Balestrate we decided to eat in Baccos one night. My sister ordered a steak with pepper sauce and a side order of fries. I chose a tagliatelle carbonara,we were both disappointed with our meals. The pepper sauce was awful,more like pesto and the fries tasted like they were cooked in fish oil. My meal... More

Some good cocktails and friendly staff. However, the music was a bit loud for our taste, and the table we sat on a bit wobbly. Despite of that, we had a wonderful evening at the lively main square at a fair price

Nice location and cool music. Starters were nice. Waited an hour between courses. We sent one main course back as squid was totally over cooked. The other main was pork and was nasty. It looked and tasted like processed meat from a supermarket. They gave us some free pastries by way of amends. Would never go back though.

We visited this bar/restaurant as a party of four. We were one of only four tables occupied inside or outside so it was not busy. The service was extremely slow whilst we noticed the Italians on the next table had plenty of attention. We ordered grilled sword fish which when it arrived could only be compared to the thickness of... More

Every weekend for a month my wife and I went to Bacco's and enjoyed each visit. We also often took friends with us. The food was quite good, but the friendly staff was the best. We were far from home in a small Sicilian town yet each time we walked in we felt at home. We tried many things on... More

My family of four recently went to Bacco's Pub and we really enjoyed our dining experience. The food was very good, and the ambience friendly and lively. We dined on the terrace, so we were able to enjoy everything that was going on in the main square. If we ever return to Balestrate, we will be certain to stay again... More

We visited Balestrate in February, which is a quiet time for Sicily. We sat having a quiet drink in Bacco's Pub, when a man came in, spoke to the locals at the bar and then when he spotted us he came straight over and introduced himself. This was Pepe. His sister was working behind the bar. We asked where we... More

We have been to Bacco's Pub a few times since being on our extended 6 month trip in Sicily. The owner & staff are very friendly and the drinks and food are very good. The location is great, just on the main square. We would very much recommend a few visits to Bacco's.

This past Saturday when visiting Balestrate on Sicily we stopped at Bacco's Pub. We enjoyed the great service and the food was tremendous. The courses started with octopus, and pasta with sardines, and went right through to a delicious swordfish steak. I am looking forward to stopping by Bacco's again on our next trip to Sicily.
