Archestratus, the first food critic, praised Italian cuisine's "top-quality and seasonal" ingredients and "fair-to-middling" ability to tranquilize out-of-control mayors. Today's Groupon similarly stuns, and rightfully so: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Bacchus, located in the Fan District.

Serving delicious Italian fare in a pleasant and food-friendly venue, Bacchus pours the fruits of fields and vines into its menu with divinely festive ferventness. Diners can pre-game on polenta partnered with feral mushrooms and cream ($6) or a dish of fried oysters bespattered with lemon-dill aioli ($9), and the spinach Caesar salad ($6) is an ideal marriage of tastes for sailormen obsessed with ancient and extreme grabs for political power. Main courses hopscotch across panels of pasta ($8–$12), seafood, and meat dishes—enlist your taste buds in a serving of spicy lamb sausage ($15) with white beans, or gain the power to cartwheel across ocean floors with the seared sea scallops ($22).

The friendliness of Bacchus’s staff is surpassed only by the restaurant’s list of convivial wines, which rolls out the tannin carpet with glasses of Kunde Estate chardonnay ($9), Da Vinci Chianti ($8), and Terra Andina merlot ($7). Pour a party over your palate and appreciate the role food plays in keeping your stomach from eating itself with the Italian fare of Bacchus.

Reviews

The Richmond Times-Dispatch praised Bacchus. Seventy-five percent of sixty-six Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant and Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars.

  • Service throughout the meal was attentive yet laid-back. We never felt rushed, although the meal did linger longer than expected. All in all, Bacchus is still doing what it has always done, and still doing it well. When the dining-out pangs strike on Monday -- or any day, for that matter -- I recommend Bacchus as a refreshing culinary cure. – Dana Craig, Richmond Times-Dispatch
  • Fabulous food, fabulous service, fabulous atmosphere. Cozy, friendly comfortable. Had pan seared scallops to die for. Yum!! – RVA Gastronome, Urbanspoon
