Had reservations for a Saturday evening and didn't really need them, the place was not busy on a warm evening in downtown La Grange. My husband and I used to frequent Bacino's as a meeting spot for friends that lived in Lake Forest as a "half-way" point and always enjoyed our meals. We visited last Spring for pizza with friends...

Very enjoyable 1st experience. The Fonduta Al Forna app and Rigatoni Napoletana were excellent! Friendly and attentive service from M. This is a very nice little Italian restaurant. My only suggestion would be to add ravioli on the permanent menu. Will definitely return.

Stopped in on trip to La Grange to visit antique shops. All of us really enjoyed our lunch. Good atmosphere, and selection of classic Italian dishes. I had pasta and my wife had a panini sandwich. They were both great. Excellent coffee, almost like cappacino. Will go again next time we are in the area.

Went here for their margherita pizza, which is fabulous, the best I've had outside of Italy, and also had one of the most delicious salads I've ever had, the poached pear & gorgonzola, and topped it all off with a lovely crème brulee - yum!

I do not understand the great reviews. We ended up at this restaurant by default. We were going somewhere else, but it was closed on Sunday's. So we ate at Bella Bacino's. I went for the swordfish special, my husband the Salmon Morracan. Being a special I thought it would be excellent. It was not, swordfish was over done. It... More

The restaurant has a very friendly atmosphere. The burgers are delicious. They have many other sandwiches such as corn beef, chicken, etc.The portions are large. Their burger is the best. It is large and very juicy. The prices are average.

A Living Social coupon brought us here and we were glad it did! Enjoyed the salad, brick oven pizza and wine. The decor is really nice, take note of the wine bottle crates used in the walls. Nice atmosphere and good service.

We purchased a Groupon some time back and finally decided to use it. Despite other reviews, we had good service and the food was very good. The Groupon deal was to split an appetizer or salad, order 2 entrees and split a dessert. We split an ample sized Rustica salad which I would recommend. I had Veal Limone and my... More

Authentic Italian food served in a very trendy atmosphere. Large bar, with an incredible selection of wines. Dan, the owner is a wine connossieur that invites certain wineries for tastes. He also travels the world looking for wines.
