“One of the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

This was my first time dining at Bacco, an oversight badly in need of correction. Based on this meal, Bacco ranks among the best Italian restaurants in Detroit. The service was outstanding, with a knowledgeable server who made appropriate suggestions, but also recognized when not to interrupt conversation.

The food was very good, with certain dishes outstanding. We sampled two appetizers: Carpaccio, and Salsiccia Arrostos. Of the two, the beef carpaccio was the superior dish, bright and tart flavors emphasizing the richness of the beef.

For entrees, two pastas, the Tagliatelle alla Bolognese and the Strozzapreti Norcina, both excellent. The pasta was al dente, and, if not house-made, it could pass for it. Both sauces were rich and delicious, impossible to choose which was tastier.

Dessert was a small bite, a delicate chocolate mousse with caramel and sea salt, served in an egg shell. About three bites of succulence, this was perfect after the heavier pastas.

The wine list is extensive, but manageable, with a wide range of offerings, albeit a prejudice toward > $100 bottles. As this was lunch, we ordered only a glass, but it was a reasonable/generous pour of a big California Meritage.

Markups appeared reasonable, and bottles are available for retail purchase as well.

In all, an excellent restaurant, suitable for business meals, celebrations, romantic interludes, or family meals.

“An excellent Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
