    The food was ok for the price. However, we could not enjoy our meal because the restaurant was so hot. We were literally sweating while trying to enjoy our meal and company. Very disappointing.

    We sat in the DR. It was quiet enough to converse versus the bar would have been loud. We had drinks and “starters.” The portions were quite small for the price.

    Started at the bar with a vodka martini just the way I ordered it, shaken and so cold the top looks almost like an ice rink. No matter how you like your martini the bartenders at Bacio are superb at everything they do! Moved on to our booth where we were greeting by our favorite waitress Courtney! I always begin with the parmesan crusted shrimp while my wife enjoys her Braziliani salad and a glass of wine. Bacio's has a wine list that should satisfy most everyone and a menu that doesn't disappoint! Tonight it was pasta and seafood that, as always, was done perfectly and was delicious! We come here often and drive by many other restaurants that can't compete with everything Bacio offers! Another Home Run by our favorite!

    Bartender was great, friendly welcoming! Our server was very nice and helpful. Our food was quick and tasty. Unfortunately some of the clientele was very rugged and rude which brought the atmosphere ambiance down. Maybe a dress code could help? Overall we enjoyed our meal and will definitely return.

    The food is very good, but the sides served with my Chicken Marsala (potatoes and brussel sprouts) were cold. I assume they were plated too early and were left sitting, cooling down, until the chicken was ready. I did receive newly prepared hot sides, but I was almost through with my chicken by then. That aside, everything tasted great.

    Bacio is a favorite of ours for so many reasons....family owned with great taste and continued excellence since opening. We came to celebrate our 51st anniversary starting with their Happy Hour and our server Tonya was the BEST...fun and knowledgeable with the wines and suggestions for our dining ahead....good start. Afterward we were seated in a nice center booth in their architecturally beautiful dining area. Our pleasant server Kristin was very helpful as well. We shared a small caesar salad to start with warm crusty bread...delish. Both gals mentioned they were known for great lasagna which I ordered and can attest with...outstanding! My man had the Braised Short Rib Pappardelle pasta dish which is seasonal and had just been added back to their menu and was very tasty. We were treated with a lovely dessert for our celebration. We left with complete satisfaction and happy memories to talk about.

    Thanks for the review, SandeeH! We're thrilled to hear that Bacio is your favorite and that you enjoyed our Happy Hour, our architecture, and our food. We're also glad that our team could contribute positively to your anniversary celebration. We're glad to hear that our caesar salad and pappardelle pasta dish were memorable for you. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and we look forward to serving you again soon. Best regards, The Management Team at Bacio

    I love eating here because of the atmosphere and food. Our server, Stephanie, was very helpful with the gluten-free options for me and she gave us the space to converse while taking great care of us. Everyone enjoyed their meal and didn't feel rushed on a Friday evening. It's always my first choice for dining.
