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.

Good value pre-theatre menu with prompt service and a varied menu choice. Carafe wine excellent and also good value. Recommend this as a pre-show meal and it was very busy at 6 00 pm on Saturday with many like minded people creating a buzzy atmosphere.
Delicious , efficient dinner before going to the Orange Tree Theatre very near by. Dinner for four of us served without feeling rushed. Well prepared seafood risotto. Two of our group raved about the liver.
The food was pretty good but the seating was cramped and uncomfortable. There were plenty of other unreserved tables and I couldn't understand why my wife and I were crammed into tiny corner seats. I am over six feet tall and I couldn't find where to put my long legs. Hazel asked to go to Bacco for her special birthday treat and I was disappointed for her sake.
Good value for money. A bit rushed matter of fact service from some staff obviously used to diners using the deal but overall worth it - if you remember to order a meal that doesn't need sides and dont brother with coffee/tea otherwise you could be paying an extra £14
The place is narrow and small but nice Italian ambiance and accent. Food is good and adequately priced. Italian wine served in carafe is good and affordable. Staff is knowledgeable and attentive. Overall a good place for an adequate dinner. I will rate it 6 or 7 out of 10
An amazing experience, really and genuine Italian food. The head chef is knows his trade and the staff floor is kind and funny. I will come back for sure. Good value for money.
Fantastic service and food. From the fresh, warm bread basket as a starter to the espressos at the end! Very happy with our dining experience and will definitely return. Perfect for pre-theatre dining.
Went with friends after rugby match at Twickenham, have to say we had a very pleasant and relaxed evening, service and food were very good, and it gets the thumbs up all around
The make over has produced a great atmosphere and the kitchen still produces excellent food. The craft ales from Italy are worth trying but machete at 7.6 per cent needs careful handling.
I enjoyed the food at this restaurant . Every course was delicious. The service and ambience was good too. I would highly recommend this restaurant as one of the best in Richmond.
Back is an incredible restaurant. The dishes have so much flavour I could swear I was in Italy. Highly recommend to everyone and so glad we found this gem of a restaurant.
Fantastic food with a short eclectic menu. I had the scallops followed by cote de boeuf. Superb. Lovely atmosphere and service. Definitely recommended as a place of tranquility close to Richmond station.
We went midweek lunchtime, and even though it wasn't as busy as the evenings, it still had a good atmosphere, staff were great and very friendly, food was superb and a good time was had by all 😄
Food was delicious and the set menu was excellent value for money. Friendly and helpful staff too. Our favourite eating place when we go to the Orange Tree theatre in Richmond.
This was my third time at this restaurant and quality is consistently very good. Service and food excellent as was the choice on the menu. What more can you ask for?
The food was great, the staff friendly and knowledgable, atmosphere was welcoming and all in all, we had a nice night out on what was a cold and rainy evening in Richmond. Worth getting wet for ☂️
Fab food. V gd wine list keen service but not very sophisticated. Good cocktails. A bit warm in back dining room. Suggest you opt for the R hand dining room from front of the property. Genuine place. We will return... in the R hand dining room
We received a wonderful service, excellent food and the atmosphere was lovely. We have various allergies and all of them were met without any problems. Look forward to going again.
Authentic Italian food in pleasant surroundings. The food was of a high quality and there was a good variety of wines on offer. The service was friendly and efficient. Not cheap but good value for money.
It was disappointing to discover that there was a pre theatre menu on offer after we had eaten. The food we had was good but my wife would have liked a dish on the special menu that was not available on the a la carte.
