About Il Bacio - Theydon Bois

Dear diners, please note, Friday, Saturday and Sunday bookings need to be made before 12pm on Friday.

Italian food is always a popular choice for those looking for a night out in Essex, and at Il Bacio, they are lucky to have one of the best around. Visitors to their restaurant on Forest Drive in the centre of Theydon Bois are met with a menu packed with Italian favourites, from meat and fish dishes to pizzas and pastas. For a starter, we’d plump for the tagliere di Affettati, featuring crisp Sardinian bread, pecorino cheese, salami and parma ham, before the main event. Meat-lovers will enjoy the pan-fried calf liver with butter & sage, or for fish fans, there is a house signature of spigola, sea bass cooked in foil. There are plenty of classic pizza options too, so you can be sure of finding something for everyone when you visit Il Bacio. Take the tube out to Theydon Bois from central London for an Italian meal to remember.

Great service and great food. Very authentic Italian/Sardinian food. We came here as a family for a birthday. Staff were very accommodating and had no problem with us bringing in our own cake. The servings were huge. Very good value for money and food atmosphere.
