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.

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.

Enjoyed a loel lunch at Bacco. Excellant food and value for money, with great servi ce too. Thoroughly recommended, and we'll be vary happy to return.
Loved the food, the customer service and atmosphere of the restaurant. It was a great, cosy little place with outside sitting as well, truly beautiful. Totally recommend to others ;)
What a surprise !!! Excellent food coupled with an extensive wine list and great service. Try the seafood risotto! Superb ! Will be back as soon as possible!
We had a delicious meal, good wine and the service was excellent. I go to this restaurant regularly, it is always full and I love it!
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.
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!
A friend and I had the set lunch menu at Bacco and enjoyed it very much. There were some interesting starters available including stewed octopus. The food was all well cooked and seasoned and we ate outside in the terrace area as it was a beautiful day. The service was good and the coffee excellent.
Book for two but 4 friends arrived unexpectedly and Bacco were happy to accommodate them even though they were very busy. The staff were very polite and helpful. So rate the service very highly. Been there several times and love the food and more than happy to go again. Best Italian in Richmond.
By far one of the very best Italian restaurants in London! Freshly made pasta and bread plus handmade biscotti to dip in coffee or ice cold Limoncello. Alongside welcoming service, everything was perfect and I'm still remembering every bite of the pasta with black truffles served in a Parmesan cheese basket...
This is our favourite Restaurant in Richmond. Has to be the best Italian Restaurant in the Richmond upon Thames area. The food is always high quality ingredients , well prepared and served by friendly and professional staff. A joy for us and will be repeated many more times. highly Recommend!!
Good food and wine, lovely staff, friendly atmosphere. We booked a table for a pre-theatre lunch after looking at a number of restaurants on-line. We were so glad we chose Bacco, it was easy to find oposite the station, and just a short walk to the theatre. Will visit again.
We went early before the theatre and it worked perfectly. The food was excellent and the staff pleasant and efficient and we were able to eat in comfort and not feel we had to rush to get to the theatre. Perfect place for supper before the theatre.
Nice decor and tasty food. However the plates were cold and the door open so the food went cold very quickly while waiting for all dishes and veg to arrive. Water served in tiny carafes so had to constantly ask for more. Wine delicious and good choice. If niggles are ironed out it good be excellent.
Good food and good service. Have been going for years to Bacco and have always really enjoyed their food. Although it seems not only the decor has changed in the past year but also the food. I remember the spaghetti crab and Tiramisu being very good, but now just good, a bit disappointed. However the atmosphere is still cosy and a good spot for an Italian meal.
Excellent service and food. Very acommodating and welcoming, even though we were so busy chatting that the waiter had to come back three times to finally take our order. No pressure to finish our meal quickly and get out. A lovely evening. Thank you!!
Over all the restaurant was disappointing considering the cost regardless of the fact that it was in Richmond. The staff did not greet us properly and offer to take our coats on arrival which is unusual. The steak was rather fatty in the middle to the extent that my wife had to cut it out and leave half of it. My daughters mash potato tasted watery.
Amazing food and service. We would recommend to anyone! Lovely staff and atmosphere. Stefano, the owner always makes us feel welcome. I had a braised lamb shoulder which was very tasty as well as my girlfriends crab pasta. See you again soon!
Had the pre theatre menu which looked amazing value but was a little dissapointing compared to the normal menu. The red mullet was a very small portion and was cold and the pork was very dry. Vegetables are extra. However do have eaten here before and it was excellent. The house wine in the carafes are very good.
My companion and I ordered from the pre-theatre menu which may have been a mistake..fish cakes and salmon both slightly burned/overdone...starter of beetroot and fregola pasta was fine..sweet and sour cheese cake desert pretty good..service a bit lacklustre..certainly not bad..but not sparky..I would only go again if also attending Orange Tree Theatre performance..and I'd order a la carte..making sure to include a pasta dish. Sorry not to be more enthusiastic but I was disappointed overall.
