I had a lunch there on Saturday at 1 pm. Half way through our lunch manager informed me that someone broke into my car and passenger's side window was crashed. This upscale restaurant doesn't have security cameras in the parking lot.

Nicely done interior, interesting artwork and murals, but a bit noisy. Good food, but very small portions and not a good value - I will not return, as there are many better options.

Good food. Good variety. The ambiance is great. Get reservations, even for lunch as it can get busy quickly.

Great takeout service - very prompt and always ready on time. But I find their food in general to be lacking. I'm not sure if it's a lack of flavor or just overall lack of making it a memorable dish. I would definitely go here in a pinch due to its convenient location but I wouldn't consider it my top choice.

Very good Italian restaurant in the west metro. We had the bruschetta, fussili lunghi, and tortiglioni rossa, all very tasty. The service was excellent. Prices are on the high end, but you will have a good meal. Highly recommended.

I meet up with a couple friends for dinner and drinks. The sky light in the center of the dining room really grabs your attention. Other decor and service was also very nice. I had the chicken parm, which was good but nothing spectactular. Overall, kind of an average blah suburban restaurant.

Bacio's has a very romantic atmosphere and is a great Italian restuarant for those "Special" occassions. Offering an upscale menu be prepared to leave very full and satisfied. This is not a kid friendly restuarant. Suggest making reservations, especially around Valentine's Day as they offer a Dinner for two special.

I really cannot complain too much about this place! Great food consistently over several visits - go for their seafood selections and they have fabulous salads. The service is professional and better than most places around town. Ambience is awesome - you can get a booth in the bar even, or a nice table in the restaurant. The tables in the bar area are good for a small group meeting out for drinks. They have a nice little outdoor patio as well though it's facing the parking lot. Highly recommend this place. Cheers!

Bacio combined the elegance my dad wanted to treat us to with some food my teenagers could recognize, though we did convince my 14 year old to try the calamari and he liked it , as did the adults. The decor is beautiful without being intimidating; we took a bunch of pictures. Everything we ordered was delicious and carefully prepared. As an environmentally and nutritionally conscious person, I appreciated the use of local , organic ingredients and a light hand with the salt. Service was very attentive. We did have to wait a bit for the chocolate Budinos at the end, but I could see why when they arrived-I'm sure they are not making these ahead of time. I wish I had had room for more than a taste off my kid's plate, but I was full of yummy calamari, tangy salad, crusty bread and perfect fettucini.

If you're looking for a really nice place to take a date, you've found it. Bacio's is a fancy Italian restaurant in the popular Ridgedale shopping area. The food is amazing (try the fungi lasagna), but you are paying for it in the higher prices (avg $15/plate). The ambience is very private, lighting is darker. There is a small patio on the front, but it looks out onto the parking lot so no privacy and a bit noisy. Service is good.

Affordable & good. Great service, quality of food is consistent. Although patio looks out on a parking lot, the wall is high enough that you don't notice while seated. My kids enjoy it as well.

Overall, we were very disappointed with Bacio. Our server was horribly slow and confused. Our entree's were brought out at the same time as our appetizer followed by our drinks! The food was middle of the road at best. My husbands steak was closer to well-done instead of the requested medium-rare and my pasta entree was cold and bland. We will not be back.

This was a first date and a first time to Bacio! I had been to Zelo and loved it and it is refreshing to have a new place out of the downtown area "close to home"! The Sea Bass is wonderful and cooked to perfection as was the 16 oz. Prime Rib my date ordered. Our server was attentive, but not in our face and knew the menu which helped us pick the perfect meals! I could make this place a staple in my diet! HAH!

I will agree the ambiance here is very nice. It does not make up for the poor service and average fare. I am not opposed to high prices, if it is worth it, but I tell you the prices on dinners are outrageousfor the average quality. The "Bacio" salad of mixed greens, pears, walnuts and gorgonzola was entirely unorigional. I first had this salad at Black's Ford in Wayzata six years ago. It has been copied by many since, and is better at Blacks' Ford. The cheesecake was the best part of dinner. Wait staff needs more training, especially on wines.

I had lunch at Bacio's with my parents who were visiting from out of town. We had great service and the food was outstanding! My parents comments several times on the beautiful ambiance and the tasty food. I will definitely recommend Bacio's to friends who are looking for a nice restaurant for a special occassion.

A nice addition to the Minnetonka area. I've been there about a half-dozen times now and tried some of everything on the menu. Stay with the fish specials which are quite good. You'll find better pastas, sandwiches and pizzas elsewhere in the Twin Cities. The food appeals to the Minnesota palate and the service is good. If anything it's a bit pricey. I still prefer the sister restaurants of Zelo and Ciao Bella from an atmosphere perspective.

Over priced Getting seated was a problem. Ambience was the best thing about this restaurant. I will be back to give them a second opportunity.

Our boss took us out for dinner. We were horrified with our service. He ordered a bottle of Dom Perignon and the server did not know what it was. He physically had to write it down. He interrupted us 13 times to ask us if we were ready to order dinner.When we said we were not quite ready, he grabbed our menus and put them on the edge of the table. I have no idea why. Spent over $300 for 3 of us, and we will never return.

We have had several incredible dining experiences at Bacio. The service is unbelievably wonderful. They provide black napkins if you're wearing dark colors and each member of the wait staff is very knowledgeable about the cuisine. The food is spectacular and the trendy atmosphere is very fun. I would definitely recommend Bacio for dining or even just for drinks in the fabulous bar.

We went to Bacio based on reviews from this site and we were not disappointed. We were both in the mood for meat . . . I had the NY strip and my fiancee the filet mignon. Both were tastey and cooked exactly as we asked. Both the Bacio and Ciao Baby salads were excellent and great values. With dinner we had the '96 Caymus, a great wine that I could tell was well cared for (check out the wine storage units in the back) and the mark up was reasonable. When we asked to eat at a leisurely pace the server kept in touch with us but let the food settle between courses. The flourless chocolate cake was great!

This out of the way place is wonderful and romantic. My fiance took me here for my birthday and it was unforgettable. We started out with the Calamari - certainly one of the best, if not THE best, we've had. Dinner consisted of the Bacio salad - organic greens with pears, walnuts and gorgonzola (Very good!) and the Linguini al Nero - with shrimp, mussels and salmon in a light saffron tomato sauce (flavors you must savor!). We had a delightful Sangiovese wine that perfectly complemented the meal. Lastly, even though we were quite satisfied with our meal, we splurged and ordered the Budino for dessert -- WOW -- this chocolate cake is crisp on the inside and is filled with soft chocolate inside - served warm with a delicious vanilla gelato on the side. We closed our eyes with each bite while our taste buds danced in joy.

A great place !!!! We had a party of 6 and wanted to add 2 more, we were disappointed that we were told that they did not have a table to accomodate us. When we arrived we understood. The service was remarkable. The food, wonderful appetizers, tuna, mussels, and scallops, all wonderful and done to perfection. We then split a pizza, again very good. Entrees were all very good, we shared and all of us had a great time tasting everything. The desserts were remarkable, the wine devine, GO!!!

Bacio is a beautiful restarant, decorated with "beautiful" people. It's hard to believe this is the former LeeAnn Chinn's! It's very busy - book a reservation or go early to secure seating.

My favorite two things about Bacio were the desserts (we shared the Huckleberry Cheesecake and some sort of delicious chocolate thing) and the service. Our server was attentive, informed and helpful without being a pest. The desserts were among the best I've had (and I've had a lot of desserts!). However, the Bacio salad was bitter (the salad was suggested by our waiter), and the food portions were small and just ok taste-wise. You are paying for the atmosphere and the trend factor here, not delicious entrees. If I went back, it would be just for drinks & dessert - skip the dinner.

Took my father for his birthday dinner. The food was very good. I had the mussels which were some of the best I've had anywhere. They were large and tender..so often they get overcooked. Had oysters on the half shell..also very good. Wait staff was so attentive...we barely put down a fork and the plate was whisked away. Only downfall was my father's entree arrived cold...we told the staff, and it was immediately whisked away and a new entree toasty warm arrived quickly. How an establishment deals with issues is important and I thought their attention to his problem got great marks in my book.
