Bacio Restaurant Review

: Photos of couples embraced in “‘the kiss”’ --- the restaurant's Italian-language translation --- adorn the walls, and white exposed brick suggest a bright and airy feel, in keeping with the Tropicana’s South Beach theme. Begin with the buffalo mozzarella with heirloom tomatoes dressed with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and basil. We also like the tagliolini with shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels, calamari, white wine and marinara. For a hearty meat dish, try the 14-ounce Choice New York strip served with tomatoes, peppers and garlic. Finishing touches are the huge portion of tiramisu, with mascarpone, coffee sabayon and Irish cream; or the E.V.O.O. panna cotta served with fresh fruit, candied olives and blood orange sauce. Complementing the classic fare are wines that hail mainly from the Tuscany and Piedmont regions of Italy, along with some worthy choices from Napa and Slovenia.
