I really LOVE this place. My boyfriend took me here for our very first date and I knew I had a keeper on my hands ;) I liked this place so much I took my best friend here for her birthday. CONS (not really...but worth mentioning): Tables--they're really close together. I mentioned the same issue at Osteria La Buca so I'm guessing this is a more common theme happening now. It turned out to be a pro for us because our neighbors told us the portions were actually pretty large. Neighborhood--the surrounding area is a little sketchy but the block that it's on is SUPER cute! I wish I had taken a picture while I was out there. PROS: Food--For the Baco, I have ordered the Original and the Toron. Both were absolutely delicious! If I had to choose one over the other, I would suggest the Toron. For Coca, I ordered the carne picada. This is kinda like a flat bread pizza. I prefer the Baco but this was still good. For the fish, I had Hamachi Crudo. I'm not a fan of fish but I actually really liked this. For meat, I had the pork belly soujouk ravioli which was also really good. Lastly, I've had the "caesar" brussels sprouts which are also a good choice. I really liked everything that I've ordered here including the hibiscus sweet & sour baco pop. I also recommend the hazelnut chocolate cream dessert, which was SO AMAZING. The Baco is my favorite choice of all the foods here but I can't say that I ate anything that I thought was bad. I would suggest that you start with three choices first and then see if you're still hungry after that. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
