Lunch at Bacco is a great value. The food and service are excellent, as always, and the prices are more manageable. The restaurant is also quieter than it is at dinner. This is an outstanding choice for a special occasion lunch.

This was an unexpected stop for a very late lunch (so late we were alone in the dining room) . Octopus, gnochi, branzino, all very well prepared. "Worth the trip"

The food was wonderful, well presented and beautifully cooked. We had the scallop appetizer, rabbit gnocchi, and roasted sea bass, which was all delicious. They were also willing to accommodate us by splitting the entrees onto two plates so my wife and I could share it. Their bread was fresh and served hot and toasted. It was a wonderful experience, I recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The food was fresh and delicious. Marinara sauce reminded me of my families. Salad was perfectly dressed and loved the touch of shaved Parmesan. The focaccia and Parmesan crackers served were delicious. Server was attentive and gave us enough time to enjoy each course knowing we were celebrating a special occasion.

Another magnificent evening at Bacco ! This restaurant never fails to impress. Food is always superb with service to match. The staff go out of their way to ensure an attentive and friendly atmosphere. Undoubtedly some of the finest Italian food in the Mid-West, rivaling and exceeding top New York names. I will be back soon....

We don’t eat at Bacco often but after this meal, we may put it back in rotation. Everything worked - Food, service, vibe. It’s on the noisy side but that not much of an impediment. Impressive to keep a high standard for so long.

Usually a 5, tonight they gave us a lousy table, despite a requested change and empty tables everywhere. The $49 branzino was a tiny portion and under seasoned. The zucchini stuffed with garbanzos was also under seasoned and uninspired. Maybe an off night all around.

I was pleasantly surprised by the greeting and friendliness (still very professional) of the staff. See, my appearance may be somewhat offsetting due to being the president of a motorcycle club. My wife and I were in jeans, boots and I was wearing a long sleeve shirt with my clubs insignia on it. We’re both very polite and clean with good manners but not looking the norm for the restaurant.
We were very impressed with the entire experience and will be back again shortly.

We returned for our 20th Anniversary after 10 years. Food was excellent. Service started off slow but got better all the way to the end. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of everything on the menu.
Homemade GF pasta was a first for me - nice texture but still too gummy. Bronzino was excellent. Bocconcini was impeccable. My wife had a seared peach and heirloom beet salad that she said was very good. Her ravioli looked good - but I cannot tell you how it tasted, she very much liked it!!!!
Wonderful surprise dessert for our Anniversary too - chocolate mousse over a flourless chocolate cake with raspberries.

Atmosphere got louder as the night progressed and the tables filled - to the point that we could not hear each other across the table. Bacco’s is certainly not as formal as it once was, but I suppose most of that is owed to society. Complimentary coat check and valet as we remembered - a nice touch.

See you back in 10 years - hopefully less as the 25th Anniversary is a big one too!!!

Absuloutely recommended!!!

Stopped by after the symphony and despite the late hour, service was as warm as ever. Given the late hour, we just had salads and shared two pastas (nicely plated for us in the kitchen) and a glass of wine each (all wonderful) and the service was still as flawless as if we had been big spenders. Always love the freshly sliced prosciutto on the chopped salad! So glad we live in the neighbourhood so we get to visit here and Bigalora all the time!

This was my first visit to Bacco Ristorante. My brother-in-law wanted to go their for his birthday after reading the chef was Michelin rated. Overall, the experience was great. Be prepared for the bill, however. Authentic Italian food was well prepared (I would pass over the Lake Superior Whitefish though) and beautifully presented. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and good with recommendations. The sommelier was very friendly and helpful. She made the experience that much more fun. The restaurant is a bit congested with tables and gets very loud when full. Its a good energy though as everyone is smiling and having a good time. I would recommend Bacco for a special occasion but be aware the total cost can quickly become quite high.

My anticipation was over the top! I had heard of this restaurant and because I LOVE Italian food, the opportunity to go was a no brainer! Boy was I disappointed! I was celebrating my birthday with my fiance and the noise level was ridiculous; I could not hear him speak and he was sitting next to me. The service was poor; the server forgot the appetizer that I ordered. Once the my entree arrived at the table, it was piping hot but overcooked. My lamb chops were dry and so was the peas that accompanied them. Will I go back? not even on somebody else's dime!

Starter Fritti Misti was light and elegant. Main course was a nightly special, pasta with venison ragu; a long simmered meat sauce similar to a bolognese sauce, with extraordinary texture and depth of flavor. The meal was finished with espresso and a complimentary plate of birthday cannoli (thank you Bacco). The wines by the glass were very good.
