My husband and I recently had dinner here with another young couple and we had a good time. This restaurant has such great reviews that it was not as great as I expected but we had an enjoyable experience nonetheless. We made reservations for 6:30 on a Saturday night and our table was ready and waiting for us when we... More

We found this place on Yelp and were able to make a last-minute reservation on a Wednesday evening. We had a great meal, it was served by the gracious owner, and despite the fact that there were only 3 or 4 tables of people present, a musician entertained us with a lovely,not too loud--not too soft, repertoire of mandolin music!...

If you have never been, it is definitely worth checking out! The very good looking and personable owner was our server and our chef and he let us know that he would make anything we wanted but there were so many good choices on the menu... Everything was very simple and perfect, the wine (fairly nice selection), the apps, crisp... More

You owe it to yourself to visit this Little Italy gem. We were delighted to have our second visit within a month and it did not disappoint. This evening, 2 specials were available and ordered in our party of six, the veal chop and rainbow trout. Both delighted the guests and looked amazing. The sausage stuffed peppers and seasonal beet... More

We went to Il Bacio without much knowledge of the place at all. There were five of us, and all of us had a wonderful experience. Il Bacio is on the corner of murray Hill and Edgehill meaning there is ample street parking and no hustle and bustle of centeral Little Italy. It is a very small room reminiscent of... More

It had been quite some years since I visited this area in Cleveland, so upon the invitation of Cleveland resident friends, I and a fellow guest were very pleased to meet them for dinner at this restaurant. From a nice table near the window, the four of us enjoyed a delicious meal, starting with calamari and eggplant as shared dishes... More

We recently celebrated a family event at Il Bacio, and are very pleased that we chose this restaurant. They stayed open late for us on a Sunday night, and the food was delicious and portions were generous. Veal chop, whole branzino and gnocchi with oxtails were as good as anything I had in Rome the week before. Definitely a cut... More

Dinner at Il Bacio was a first-time-to-Little-Italy for hubby and me. He picked the place for our 26th anniv. based on reviews & we found it to be a small, quaint little spot. Alrighty, let me hit the negative first. My husband returned his dinner. Wow. That has never, ever happened before. (did I mention 26 years?) He ordered the... More
