From appetizers to salads and main courses, this has been a particularly pleasant surprise. Much closer to Italian food than many of the places in Minneapolis I have been to. A "chapeau" to everything Ahi tuna (whether the ahi tuna crisps appetizers or the wood grilled ahi tuna)--make sure you try them. Service is nice and friendly, and on sunny... More

Always a great meal at Bacio. Love their fish, pastas, and salads. Great drinks and happy hour food! Favorite dessert, the Budino!

I have eaten many wonderful meals at this place but I haven't been there in a while. The Happy Hour has always be very good also( better than typical HH food and wine). Last Saturday night we went with another couple and everyone enjoyed their food. The other guy had the lamb burger and I had the tortiglioni rossa. He... More

We visited for my daughter's birthday. I would describe the food as upscale Italian with a wide range if options. There is a range of food preferences in our group from vegetarian to steak. Everyone was extremely happy with their choices. The fresh corn risotto was incredible. The chef uses local ingredients as much as possible and the menu changes... More

I sat at the bar as I typically do when traveling for business. The bartenders, Kevin and Stew, took great care of me. The Caesar salad was very fresh with shaved Parmesan, the lobster ravioli was delightful, and a nice Chianti topped it off!

I had dinner with some business associates about a week ago. We shared the parmesan-crusted shrimp and avocado bruschetta for appetizers. I had the sweet corn risotto with shrimp as my dinner. It was great! Others had the Walleye and fettuccine with asparagus. All were pleased! The service was very friendly and attentive.

I started this review rating the restaurant as 3 stars. I went there last week and it was really, really not as good as I remember. I got the Ciao Baby salad (which I get at both Bacio and Zelo) - the lettuce was limp and there was almost no goat cheese. I was dramatically disappointed with my meal and... More

Best street tacos I've ever had. They were Salmon with slaw and Avacado. Service quick. Yummy sangria. Nice outdoor seating.

A few of us in Minnetonka for business and looking for something outside the usual chain restaurants. Based on Trip Advisor reviews we went to Bacio's....perfect in every way. We sat outside in the courtyard, had a fantastic server (sorry we didn't get her name and receipt only shows Server 54 August) who gave us her recommendations and she was... More
