    Food was fine nothing special. A bit pricey for the quality. Service was great though and ambience was wonderful for a quieter date spot.

    Waitress was very accommodating and gave her food recommendations. We ordered the chicken parm the chicken was undercooked. They readily took it back and brought out spaghetti. The spaghetti was bland but we were hungry and ate about 1/4 of it. The drinks however were great and hit the spot.

    This was our 2nd attempt and things were worse than before. Horrible experience! 2 simple orders: Caesar Salad (split) and Chicken Piccata (split). It took over 30 minutes for the salad to arrive and it was not split. A simple salad should not take 30+ minutes. The entree also took over 30 minutes - also not split - and the chicken was UNDERCOOKED. We were so frustrated we just ate the pasta. To top things off, after we’d made our displeasure known, our server was even eager to get my credit card so I could pay the entire bill. Barely an apology. Curiously, I never saw a manager the entire time we were there. There are many options in the area so we’ll be spending our money elsewhere.

    We had a reservation for 4 and were seated promptly. The wait staff was very good, friendly and attentive. I ordered a pasta entre only since all items are a la carte priced. The pasta dish was just warm (barely) when served. The sauce was too sweet for my liking and seemed to lack any Italian spices. (Reminded me of Ragu sauce from a jar). For me this restaurant is a 'one and done' experience. There are many better Italian restaurants in the area.

    The service was mediocre, but the food was really good, there was almost no one in the restaurant so it was very quiet, they did let me bring in a cookie cake for a birthday so that I very much appreciate, a little pricey in my opinion, but overall not too much of a bad time

    I had dinner with my family at this restaurant recently.. The service was prompt and enthusiastic. The he food was very disappointing. The bread and pizza were bland and burned. The entrees were ho hum considering how expensive this . There are plenty of tasty pizza and pasta places in Tucson with a reasonable cost. I won’t be back.

    Our waitress was amazing! They were really busy and she was always checking in on us and letting us know the status of our order. Caprese salad and the burrata appetizer was really very good. My daughter had vodka pasta with chicken that she loved. My husband had chicken piccata and I had chicken marsala. We had to ask for salt because it was all tasteless. Marsala should be very rich and have an amber color. Could not taste the marsala at all. My other daughter had pesto pasta and she had enjoyed it before but this time not so good. Because they were super busy they ran out of a few things. Luckily they were not the items we intended to order.

    Seating & service was prompt. Ordered the stuffed mushrooms & they weren't anything special. I then ordered the chicken marsala that was served with side of fettuccine. The chicken was tender but could have used another splash of wine. My date ordered fettuccine with shrimp. The portions are very generous and you'll certainly feel full but you keep going back to the pasta because its unusually excellent. Push the plate away then pull it back, back & forth I was exhausted. Hard to stop eating. Dessert not necessary, pasta definitively yes.

    This was our third visit to Bacio's. We enjoyed our first 2 visits but our third visit - not so much. It was a rainy day, so we ate inside and the noise level was so high that we could not hear our friends across the table and so we could not have a conversation during dinner. The food was good and in the past we have enjoyed the deconstructed cannoli dessert very much - however the kitchen has changed the recipe and the dessert this time was a lot of ricotta whip cream with not much flavor and too much of it. A complete disappointment. We hope that they go back to the old recipe - it was much better. They also need to fix the noise level issue - if they do not wee will probably not visit again.

    Thank you for accommodating my friend and I in short notice, and for a small amount of time. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and we made it to the theatre "Pretty Woman" in time! Thank you!

    The food was great, the server seemed to be serving to many tables. Was good at the start but after we got our appetizers he disappeared for a little while. It is a very noisy place. Then the patio doors were opened up it got very warm inside the restaurant.

    We had reservations for outside (nothing available inside) and it was HOT outside (no misters.) Our server took 20 minutes to deliver our drinks and another 40 after that to deliver the food. The food and drinks were good, but we'd expect bread to be on the table at an Italian restaurant. Our Lemondrop martinis were served in sticky glasses- The entire stem was sticky from the sugar on the rim, so we had to go wash our hands prior to dinner because we were all sticky! Staff seemed overwhelmed with an event at Centennial Hall, and the bar and kitchen really struggled to keep up. Enjoyed the food, but next time we'll go elsewhere if we can't be inside. Too darn hot and we felt like we were "forgotten" outside. I do look forward to going back when there's no local event so we can enjoy the excellent food with a bit more attentiveness.
