“An excellent Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We went there for a business meeting. The choice is rather wide, the menu is rigorously in Italia, I had 'Zuppa di ceci and verdure' and a Seabass. My collegues appreciated a lot pasta dishes (Tagliatelle with clams) and meat one (Ribeye), but again the choise is rather wide.
The wine was really excellent (Dolcetto d'Alba) and again they have a good cellar.
It is a good place for business dinners, reserved rooms are available.

“A perfect dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

My husband and I just had our first taste of Bacco's and it was truly incredible. Not only was the food perfection, but so was the service! Agatha and Michael took such great care of us and made sure that each of the courses was described in detail and paired with the perfect wine and it was done with love. The respect each of them had for the food and the process of getting the food to our table was palpable. They added the perfect compliment to the outstanding Chef Luciano and the delightful culinary experience of dining at Bacco Ristorante.

“Outstanding selection and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

By far, one of the better restaurants in the greater Detroit area, Bacco provides an exceptional array of (very) fine wines, entres and service. This is the closest we have found (yet) to true unrushed European dining. The restaurant is well appointed and offers inside well as outside diining (weather permitting). Service is/was impeccable and the attentiveness of all service personnel, including the sommelier was impressive. While at the top end, price-wise, all in all, the trip was worth the gastronomical experience. We will return.

“Bacco Restorante”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Good Italian restaurant, the decor is one of the most pleasant. The food was OK certainly not in a league with the best in SE Michigan. Maybe the chief was on vacation. One of the specials was risotto, salty & no seafood. Service was outstanding. Desert was great or very small portion (a hollowed out egg shell with the desert inside). Best menu item was a pasta dish (Strozzapreti Nororcina). In general, expect to spend aprox. $75/ person, revise the prices downward 15%-20% especially on the high end menu choices. Wine selection excellent but as usual 3+ times over retail. Inconvenient parking setup - close in parking saved for valet and self parking in the back 40, great if you want people to notice your car when the valet finally delivers it. Limited to one of the see and be seen venues.

“best italian in MI? I feel sad...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I tried not to have high expectations due to the setting, what's with the horizontal strip mall? Little did I know what was coming. The service is weirdly out of sync. We sat at our table for 20 mins, no specials, no cocktails, no sign of waitstaff. When the waiter finally took the order it seemed he was inexperienced in selling. The bussers scurry about filling your water glass until you feel afloat! I am a former restaurant pastry chef , I have eaten in many fine dining settings. The food was good, not great and while I understand that house made is indeed something special these prices are are way out of whack. The music in this place was so unpleasant and not wanted. I can't really understand the other reviews. I doubt I will eat at Bacco again, at this price range there are better options.
