    We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. There was a classic look to it that matched the Tropicana. The food was delicious and well prepared. We ordered fish and a baked pasta with bolognese. Hostess was quite slow with everyone who had reservations but our waiter was very attentive. If you want classic Italian food in a mellow atmosphere, this is the place to go.

    We ate at Bacio last night and my wife hasn't stopped talking about the waiter. She felt disrespted by him and I am paying for it! The food was ok. I actually like the food more than a lot of other Italian restaurants in Vegas but last night the air conditioning was not working and dining was miserable. They closed the restart at 6:30 due to the excessive heat in the kitchen. Our waiter Saul told us he put the bread requested in our to-go bag but when we got home the bread was not the same and was as hard as a rock. We used a Groupon for this venue and since I work in the industry I am very conscious of the wait staff's perceptions. Out meal came $63 an I gave our man Saul a $25 gratuity, so I expect my bread to be better than bird feed.

    Party of three.. ordered lobster ravioli and two veal parmigiana's. Both were DELICIOUS! The veal parmigiana was enormous, practically hanging over the side of the plate. Dining "al fresco" gave you a chance to people watch (while they watched you eat!) Compliments to our waiter and beverage server (so sorry I cannot remember their names.) Overall great experience and will definitely go back again on our next trip to Vegas.

    We were very disappointed in the service. Since they are able to add the tip directly onto the check, the service person wasn't too interested in keeping us pleased. NO meatballs in an Italian restaurant on a Friday night at 7:45? What's up with that? We had to wait 45 minutes for our dinner. Another 25 minutes to get our check... Managers never came around to check on how service or dinner was. Would not dine in Bacio again.

    Food at this Tropicana Hotel bistro was great,,,,as was the friendly service.....BUT......the atmosphere was really tired. This restaurant see med like it was just stuck in an area to fill it up, like an afterthought, no frills, needed sunglasses at 7pm....tacky little curtains, funny place, not like a Vegas casino restaurant. Wouldn't bother with this place again

    We chose Bacio because it's in the Tropicana, where we were going to see Mamma Mia. ( great show, by the way.) our server, Anthony, was incredible. Salads came quickly, but due to some problem our dinners were delayed. Anthony was very apologetic, and comp'd us our wine. Wifey had lobster ravioli, which she says was delicious (I'm not a lobster guy.) I wasn't very hungry, so I had a small pasta plate, which was fine (ask for extra marinara.). Highly recommend this restaurant!

    my hubby and i dined here on a week long trip to fabulous las vegas (so of course expect to pay a smidge more) - and well worth it, bacio most definitely did delight!! the design of the restaurant (inside the tropicana) is the only slightly strange aspect of the dining experience - so much white!! our server amber was super awesome and made dinner that much more enjoyable! we had the most delicious scallops to start, soup & salad, my hubby's chicken parmigiana and my tagliolini - one of the best i've had!! oh and who could do it without wine!! thank you again to all at bacio - especially the wonderful server amber!

    I have dined at Bacio's a number of times and it is always a great experience. All categories, food, service, ambience and noise level are excellent. In addition, the staff makes you feel welcome this time from Jorin the hostess to our excellent server Amber. Just an excellent restaurant in my opinion and plan to go back.

    Breads and salads were not so great, but the wine was fairly good and entrees were unsurpassed! Beef ravioli was exquisite. Chicken piccatta melted in your mouth. Veal scallopini dish had to be licked clean! We were seated around the outside of the main restaurant, where they had tables set up to watch the passers by between the casino and the convention area. It added more to the conversation, to say the least! Our server, Pablo, was superb. Prices very reasonable for such great entrees.

    I have eaten here a few times and although I find the restaurant somewhat awkward, it is not terrible. I will say that the menu is very much overpriced and that is unfortunate. Our server was very nice and the food was ok. I had a Groupon but I still went over by $100. I was somewhat disturbed by all the groupons being used...I could see that every tightwad in Vegas was there that night! how do you go out to a restaurant and drink water or soda? Why go out if you are that cheap?

Went the next day to another Italian restaurant at The Venetian and experienced great ambiance, flavorful food, dessert, wine and half the price for 4.

    Our waiter was Saul and busboy was Glenn which were excellent. They provided us with superb service. However the food was a big disappointment. We started with the spinach salad. It was so overdressed that it made it pungent. We finished it by drinking lots of water. I ordered the veal marsala that was just okay. It wasn't bad, but I've had so much better. There was nothing special about it. My boyfriend order the Chicken Caprese. It seemed that they wanted to get the skin crispy, but they over did it which make it crunchy. It was difficult to cut and chew. The asparagus was good. The tiramisu tasted old and premade, not fresh at all. We had a Groupon which made this place more affordable, but Groupon or not I would not go back.

    We went here for dinner prior to a comedy show at the Trop. The service was quick and friendly. The calamari appetizer was large enough for four people. The dinners were of reasonable size and were of decent quality. Certainly not the best Italian in town but a nice place for a pre show dinner.

    Our food was okay, but has the same price tag as fine dinning at a 5 star hotel. Our service was great. The atmosphere was awful, as its basically in a hallway where all the guests leaving the tower come down and blow smoke over you food. It was very difficult to eat here as a vegetarian or a person that like high quality inventive dishes. I paid $25 for cheese and pasta with 2 tiny bits of asparagus, our appetizer has very iffy looking "fresh" tomatoes and our dessert could have come from an ice cream truck. I wouldn't be this harsh if a fine dinning price tag wasn't attached to this very mediocre meal. Our server was very professional, friendly, knowledgable and warm. She was the best part of our meal. Use a "Groupon".

    Overall, I enjoyed the restaurant. Our waiter Saul was excellent, as was his staff. My only problem with the restaurant happened when we arrived. I had checked their website and saw that the dress code was casual. I called to make the reservation and was told the same thing. I was wearing a nice collared shirt, expensive shorts and $100 sandals. When I go to the place, a man told me he couldn't seat me because I was wearing shorts. I explained what the website and the personal who made the reservation said. He told me sorry, it was company policy. Meanwhile, there were people dressed nowhere near as nice eating there. Also, there were WOMEN in shorts and sandals. I made him call a superior and got seated, but it ruined the night.
