Great food, good service

As an eating establishment, I rate the food delicious. It is a larger establishment yet I felt as if they made a good attempt to create a more intimate atmosphere.

Consistently strong. Good food, service. Some menu items stay the same, others change. Not the typical suburban fare.

food at Bacio is consistently good but nothing amazing. Nice ambiance inside and a lovely patio area in the summer

You will find truly warm and inviting interiors, very good food and service, don't be put off my reviewers who complain of smaller portions, the restaurant serves quality food in the correct size portions! I do think wines by the glass prices are eye-watering, $12 for a serving of Frogs Leap Sauvignon Blanc is about the price for bottle of... More

While the décor is nice in this elegant restaurant, the service was slow, and the food was disappointing. I ordered the Turkey Burger for lunch and it was served on a limp white bun. The fries were not great - soft and small. For a $16 lunch entrée I expected a lot more.

My husband and I really enjoyed eating here. The food was really good. We had salad and pasta dishes. While the quality was amazing, I was left wanting more, especially for the price. Great service, though!

Met with another couple for a nice birthday dinner, started with cocktails and appetizers which were very good - excellent waitress. Seated for dinner and the first thing the new waitress told us is that they were "out of four entrees". The menu is not that extensive so surprised they would be out of food at 6:00pm. Ordered a mid... More

I have eaten at this restaurant multiple times and will continue to. Great food - especially the sea bass and calimari. When the restaurant is full it can get a little loud. The booths are very large and comfortable for a party of four (vs a table for four). They have a very nice wine selection. The kitchen area is... More

We went here after ready all the great reviews on TA. I had the lamb burger, it was ok. My daughter had a flatbread pizza, and it was paper thin, with not much flavor. Would not go back.

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
