I’m a bit torn about this place. The restaurant was crowded on a weeknight but we were seated without a reservation. Suits and dresses were the norm for diners. Our server did NOT present a wine list, but when we told him we preferred red, he said we could pick from chianti, cab or merlot. Found that a bit odd, but went with it. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, and answered all our questions when we told him it was our first time.

The atmosphere was noisy, the service was mediocre, but the pasta was wonderful!! Bread was served by the piece (1” x 3”) from the ‘bread waiter’ who appeared exactly once and served one two-bite portion each. Dessert was overpriced.

When the bill came we were surprised to see that we had been charged $15 for a basic glass of red wine, $60 in total as we each had a second glass while waiting for our food. This explains why we weren’t offered a list?? I understand that the mark-up on wine is huge, but if the wine we had retailed over $15/bottle I would be surprised. In comparison, my excellent pasta dish was $17.

Just a bit stuffy for us, and with the ridiculous wine prices we won’t be back. But I would like their pasta recipe!

My husband and met a friend for dinner here (at her suggestion, since we were from out of town) and the experience was wonderful. The atsmophere was cozy and the service was 5 star, as was the food. I had the whole sea bass with whipped potatoes and wilted spinach, but the lamb was tempting. The fish melted in my mouth. Really good. My husband had their signature pasta dish (with Italian sausage) and loved it. This restaurant was a great experience and we highly recommend it.

Ok, confession time. I have been going to Bacco's for several years now and just realized I have never written a review about them. It's pretty unbelievable since it is one of the best places to eat in Southeast Michigan! I have been there on normal occasions, special occasions, no occasions, and flat out just because - and they never disappoint! Their wine list is absolutely killer and if you let them assemble your meal for you it will be a great adventure every time. My wife and I have never been disappointed. And yes, I am aware that is a bold statement. One that I don't make lightly.
I could go on, but I won't. Just one inside tip: Ask to speak to Stoli. After a five minute conversation he will guide you through an evening your taste buds will never forget.
You're welcome.

The food here was spectacular. I really appreciated that all of the meat and fish on the menu are listed with their origin. They also offer multiple vegan options. The atmosphere was nicely decorated, however, it was very loud and hard to hear our guests at the table. It was a Tuesday night and it was packed. I can't wait to go back. Yum!
