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.

Further Information

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.

Excellent Saturday night dinner at Bacco, through from starters to pasta and calves liver mains and delicious deserts and cheese. Loved the atmosphere here too- intimate but buzzy. Will definitely be back.

Excellent as always. We have visited Bacco several times, for pre-theatre meals and more leisurely dining. They never fail to impress. I would thoroughly recommend.

Good value, pre-theatre dining.We usually go there before going to the Orange Tree theatre next door and have always finished eating in good time for the performance without feeling rushed.

Food was very nice, if not a little expensive for the portion size. Service was variable, polite but not always quick. Atmosphere was pleasant and location nice and close to the station. House wine was good value.

Delicious food and gracious, attentive staff. The refurbishment is lovely. Looking forward to my next visit. Much better alternative for Italian cuisine than the Carliccio's next door.

This was a rugby international set menu. With that in mind, it was nonetheless a surprise to receive carpaccio of beef seared to the plate and apple crumble cooked goodness knows how long in advance but inedible around the edge as cemented to the dish.

We had a very pleasant meal, using the pre-theatre menu, which is good value. Surprisingly, the restaurant was very empty, so obviously atmosphere was lacking, but we were early in the evening.

Really disappointing overall. The only good thing about the whole experience was the deep fried seafood starter. The main course of tuna steak was small and bland, with a really unusual "citrus dressing" that was basically just very large pieces of orange with the steak. We ended up cancelling dessert after we were left waiting over 40 minutes for the chocolate fondant. The worst thing about this is that we weren't even apologised to,and then had to wait another ten minutes for the bill, which they added a service charge onto even though the service was shocking. The prices charged are definitely not a reflection on the quality of service or food. Would recommend to avoid this place and pop to Pizzeria Rustica over the road instead!

Unfortunately the waiter left out one of our mains and the service in general was very inattentive. They did try to make up for it but giving us extra desserts which was appreciated but unfortunately overall impression was not great.

Set menu as it was Rugby match that day. Not obvious when booked. Tried to serve too many people quality of food was poor. Sent 1st course back as not cooked -poached egg was still very runny and was cold!! Main course pasta was not much warmer though it was cooked.

We found the experience to be expensive and our table which was near the staff door was not pleasant. The food was ok but not special
