Bacio is the absolute best restaurant in Minnetonka. Their food is consistently great and their service is always top notch too. The shrimp étouffée is a new awesome dish on the menu with a little spice. The walleye is fresh when available and sure not to disappoint. Really everything on the menu is fabulous. They have a wonderful happy hour... More

I hadn't eaten at Bacio in many, many years. Tried it out and the food was better than I remember and the service was stellar. We returned again during happy hour pricing and that is one of the best values all around - drinks and food. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. I highly recommend it.

The calamari was excellent, it was tender and the batter was nicely seasoned. The tomato basil soup was ok, nothing to rave about but ok. The fries were very meh, needed salt and were pretty soggy. The ahi tuna burger was great, it was cooked well with a nice seasoning and the aoli set it over the top.

Food, service and atmosphere were very enjoyable. Good wine list and the grilled tuna was as good as it gets.

Went for a birthday night dinner, my first visit to Bacio. Not many places have the Hanger Steak on the menu, so I ordered it 'medium'. It was served sliced or carved several times and obviously rare. Make that very rare. I ate it, but did not enjoy it. What's prompting this review, however, is the fact that I am... More

Bacio has a great bar atmosphere. The happy hour offers a good number of specials and most drinks have a discount. I was here on a Saturday afternoon and was surprised at the crowd. The staff was accommodating when we asked to watch a ball game on one of their TVs - no sound but that was OK. Would like... More

My husband and I love this place. It is usually fairly quiet, the service is generally fantastic with friendly wait staff. I LOVE the Bacon and Blu salad and the fact that I can get a half size of their pasta. The sauce is awesome. My husband generally has the filet which is delicious. They bring fantastic bread if you... More

I went with a friend to have dinner and things started out okay but it didn't end that way! We were seated, got drinks, ordered food, got bread/butter, salads, then we waiting for over an hour for our meals to come. Other people were seated next to us and got appetizers within 10 minutes, we still didn't have our food.... More
