“Top place to go in western suburbs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

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 a outdoor patio with atmosphere , needs to add fire ,water feature or plants.

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!

“Best restaurant in Minnetonka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

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 the city.
Charming architecture, decor and ambiance. Sophisticated but not at all stuffy. Well trained, cheerful staff. Handsome, well stocked bar, alongside a cheerful lounge. Nice patio seating. Impressive restaurant dining area. Interesting menus, emphasizing local and seasonal produce. And every meal I've had there has been, at least, very good. I have never been disappointed in Bacio.
For a light meal at a light price, go at Happy Hour (3 - 6 PM daily) and sit outdoors or in the lounge. For a more extensive meal, dine in the restaurant: prices are higher, but still reasonable -- especially pasta dishes.
Good for a convivial time with friends; a romantic interlude; or even a business chat.

“Great menu, ambiance and service with an upbeat vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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 patio is a delight Over the years, Bacio has kept its food prices in line; drinks can be pricey,

“Dependably good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Bacio is one of our favorite restaurants and we are fortunate to live nearby. Salads, pizza and fish are dependably good. Service is very well done, impressive as they are almost always busy. Only negatives are smoking area outside and pricey drinks.
