This place is a fantastic place to meet for a drink or dinner. It used to have great happy hour food and we have been coming here for years. Within the last months we have had horrible food here. They did change the menu, but they must have changed chef's too, because it is awful. Their flatbread pizza used to... More

Nice place... good patio dining... reliable good food. Calamari appetizer was very well prepared. Waiter brought us an "extra" - shrimp entree - excellent! Prices are a little high - no matter how you cut it your view is of a parking lot and you are in a shopping mall.

Bacio's has a delightful menu with solid entree choices, insightful appetizers and excellent service. The lemongrass crab cakes were delightfully refreshing and fresh. Our waiter was able to recommend choices based on our personal preferences. I chose the Chao Baby salad because I love goat cheese, and the flavorful morsels along with the pine nuts were delicious. The fettucine asparagi... More

The food, service and atmosphere are great. I just moved out the western suburbs and it's surprising the lack of decent restaurants but Bacio regards of where it's located would be a favorite. Great happy hour and if you stay for dinner won't be disappointed. A little pricey but far for the food. Only wish for summer months they had... More

Wonderful Mother's Day brunch at Bacio. It was my first time there and I was very impressed by the ambiance, wait staff, and food quality. I would certainly go back!

The city of Minnetonka is very pleasant, but it stretches for miles and has no real central hub for commerce and entertainment. Bacio is located beside Ridgedale Mall, on the far side of Minnetonka from my home, a 15 minute drive. So I go there less often than I should. Because it is the most attractive and reliable restaurant in... More

No matter how many new eateries appear, we always find ourselves returning to Bacio for lunch, dinner or happy hour. The pasta, fresh fish, salads and deserts, plus nice wine list are guaranteed to please. The beautiful decor and unique architecture, makes this venue a great place for birthdays, special occasions and entertaining out of town guests. Summertime on the... More
