THE INFLUENCE: “Il Bacco is not just a dining experience. Our customers are guests in our home. We strive for this atmosphere through our fine food, gracious service, and warm ambiance.” – Tina Maria Oppedisano 

Il Bacco is situated on the border of Little Neck and Great Neck, bringing in the crowds from both Queens and Long Island since 1992. In 2010, restaurateur Giuseppe Oppedisano decided to move to a larger space and opened his new custom-designed, Tuscan-style three-story location. It includes the restaurant, a beautiful room for private parties, and a rooftop oasis that offers outdoor dining in warmer months. The restaurant’s mosaic tile, dark wood, and custom chandeliers set the scene for fine dining and gracious service by seasoned professionals.  Reminiscent of Italy, our experience began with fresh bread and a delicious cheese, olive, and cherry pepper plate. The tortelloni tartufata was surprisingly light and absolutely delicious. The baby lamb chops were juicy and melted in my mouth. I made sure to leave room for dessert after the mélange of flavors my meal bestowed upon me. The pistachio tartufo was the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
