Good thing about restaurants is you can make a reservation well up front to be sure you can enjoy a nice dinner on Friday evening. However in a restaurant like Per Bacco this simply doesn't matter, so why bother, they for sure don't! Upon arrival...More

I went there on a Sunday evening, and had the 4 course menu, which allowed me to sample quite a few different plates (with wild mushrooms, roe and dove) and three different desserts (pear crème, chocolate tart and tiramsu) without overeating. In summer there is...More
