Chef/owner Michael Scognamiglio’s housemade pasta and gnocchi anchor Bacco’s impressive line-up of authentic southern Italian fare, while a frequently changing mix of large plates include eggplant parmesan, grilled marinated squid, and roasted veal with saffron risotto cakes. The hand-pulled mozzarella and savory fire-roasted olives are not to be missed. At lunch, there’s Neapolitan-style pizza baked in a wood-burning oven and rustic sandwiches made with Italian meats and that wonderful mozzarella. Simple but classy decor and eminently reasonable prices make Bacco a great regular haunt for Mt. Pleasanters and well worth a trip across the Ravenel bridge for everyone else. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2015)
