About Bacco Restaurant

A veteran Italian restaurant in Richmond, easily reached from the station and not far from the botanic gardens north along Kew Road, Bacco offers an escape to Italy with few rivals in the greater London area. Bacco Restaurant has been run by the same family for fifteen years, and is considered a fixture in the neighbourhood for its attention to detail when it comes to translating age-old family recipes into handmade Italian pasta, focaccia and desserts. Maintaining close contacts with the bel paese, Bacco also boasts a wine list that divides its time between small regional producers and famous vineyards. Complete with a covered terrace and private dining area, Bacco is ideal for casual Italian dining or your next celebration.

More about Bacco Restaurant, London

Bacco Restaurant is about as authentic, family-run trattoria as one can expect in London. Richmond is far from the Mediterranean, but the good folks at Bacco offer a fantastic alternative to an actual journey in the form of fine food and drink. Sample some exceptional wines sourced from boutique wineries scattered throughout regional Italy, paired with equally exceptional dishes presented to diners on a classically-structured menu. Dining as a couple? Go for the salumi Italiani charcuterie and grilled vegetables sharing platter to start, the divine seared scallops wrapped in pancetta and served with a red beetroot puree, or the real show-stealer starter in terms of regional Italian fare that comes in the form of beef carpaccio with French beans, pine nuts, Sardinian pecorino cheese and a truffle dressing.

Pasta dishes at Bacco are generous enough to be considered for a main course, if you can’t be tempted by the fish and meat mains on offer. All are homemade, with highlights including the tagliolini with shaved black truffle in a crispy parmesan basket and the tagliatelle heaped with a Tuscan white veal ragout and truffle oil. Regulars to this Richmond Italian restaurant often opt for the daily grilled fish platter served with aromatic extra virgin olive oil – some of the freshest seafood in London, the roasted guinea fowl or the pistachio-crusted rump of Welsh lamb with a creamy mushroom and cherry tomato confit. Plus, if you’re after a host for a private dining event, you can’t go wrong with Bacco’s 27-seater Vinoteca area, one of the highlights of the restaurant’s gorgeously-appointed Kew Road premises.

Lovely food and brilliant service, very welcoming and let us choose where to sit. Great for a quick lunch as we didn’t have to wait too long for food to come.

Excellent as always. Food and service impeccable and a cut above most other Richmond eateries. Butterflied prawns, liver and bacon and chocolate cake - what more is there to live for?

Fantastic New Years Eve. The atmosphere was inviting and confortable. I was met by name by the owner at the door and immediately felt welcome. The food was delicious and the service was efficient & professional. The staff were there when you needed them but not continually in your face. The wine list was extensive with prices well within reason. The live music for the evening was enjoyable without being too loud that you still couldn't talk. Thank you Bacco for one of the best New Years I have had in a long time.

I recently gave this restaurant top marks and a glowing review, but this time our experience was not so good. We had the set menu, as we had the previous time, but this time the aubergine starter was lukewarm and mushy. It had clearly not been freshly made as on the previous occasion, when it was served sizzling hot. The rest of the meal was good , through the main course fish dish was not as generous as on the previous occasion. It was the service which really disappointed us. It was first class last time, with the owner himself taking our order. I think our waitress this time was new, so allowances must be made, but she certainly needed a bit more training.

This is one of the best restaurants in Richmond. It is our favourite. The staff are excellent the ambience is perfect and the food is always quality fayre prepared perfectly. It is classic Italian and never fails to leave us looking forward to our next visit. We highly recommend a visit here and are sure that you like us will return to enjoy many more.

Great table for 6, towards the back, ambience really nice. Staff friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic - excellent value for money. My main was excellent - pumpkin tortelloni, not too many so not heavy but lovely taste and very fresh, pasta perfectly cooked. Monkfish and sea bream got good comments from others. As ever the wine list is good.

It was OK.I have been there a few times and notice that the more you spend, the nicer they are to you. Also pricing of side dishes is disproportionate- £3.50 for a tiny side of spinach which appears to be the baby spinach from a plastic bag- can't have cost them more than 20 p. I noticed that at least one of our dishes appeared on the menu at a slightly lower price than what turned up on the bill but you're not going to quibble about 50p- still it is annoying. It's counterproductive to do this sort of thing because it makes the customer feel less inclined to go back. Food was fine, nothing special though.

Really nice meal and attentive service. Well-prepared dishes with good portion sizes – I had the sea bass, my parents had the veal. They're from the classic Italian repertoire; antipasti include carpaccio and scallops, there's a good selection of pasta dishes and desserts include a very tasty panna cotta and a caramelised pineapple dish with ice cream. Delicious!
