Bacco Restaurant & Bar
Fantastic FoodThe food was a real cut above the rest and the service very warm and attentive. It was very quiet for a Saturday night, so ambience suffered a little, but a truely fantastic meal was had.11/05/2013 00:00:00Elegant place, great foodI'd been here before and loved the food and venue. Came for the £16? 2 course lunch offer. Had a very fresh minestrone soup and then the crispy pork which was fabulous. Excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. I will probably come a third time.10/05/2013 00:00:00A very nice birthday mealVery nice and cozy place tho a bit pricy. Would definately recommend to a friend.09/05/2013 00:00:00BaccoBacco in Holborn is off the beaten track but moments walk from Holborn & Chancery Lane. Always greeting with a warm friendly smile the food and service are excellent authentic Italian. A good wine selection to boot.01/05/2013 00:00:00Gourmet Italian FoodExcellent food and wine. Fantastic value when there is a 50% off deal.24/04/2013 00:00:00A great timeI organised a work reunion for 6 of us. We had a terrific evening. The food was more than a cut above other Italian restaurants I have eaten at, with a great selection of specials and a good range catering to a broad set of tastes. The staff were really helpful and accommodating and very friendly. It was a Tuesday night just after Easter so not that busy but they made us feel very welcome. We dined on the 50% off offer so it was really good value and my colleagues were amazed when the bill came as we'd had quite a lot of wine over the course of the meal! The decor of the restaurant is smart. It's not that big so it feels intimate but without the tables being crowded in. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.16/04/2013 00:00:00Good evening outThere were 8 of us and we has a good evening at Bacco - good food and excellent service. This is our 3rd visit, will definitely return especially with Toptable 50% off offer!13/04/2013 00:00:00Buisness lunchThe two course meal was ideal for a working lunch. The food was freshly prepared and the staff friendly and attentive.11/04/2013 00:00:00nice atmosphere, friendlynice atmosphere, friendly and attentive service and food was tasty as well. Its bit expensive for what it is though. So without the 50% off offer I probably would not have gone there.06/04/2013 00:00:00Great pre theatre valueMy fiancee and I went to Bacco last week before the theatre and found the food and overall experience fantastic in both quality and value for money. Highly recommended.05/04/2013 00:00:00Very beautiful food and greatVery beautiful food and great value for money, i will defiantly be returning in the future27/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent ServiceReally nice food and extremely attentive and friendly waiter. Have recommended to friends.23/03/2013 00:00:00Capital!Excellent food, attentive service, absolutely delightful.15/03/2013 00:00:00The service was very professionalThe service was very professional and attentive and the food was gorgeous. Quite pricey but the food reflects the price and also very nice wine. The atmosphere was very calm and romantic. Although i didnt go for a romantic meal, i'd imagine its the perfect place for a bit of romance.15/03/2013 00:00:00Food was amazing, had theFood was amazing, had the special of Monkfish with Fois Gras - fabulous combination! Service very good too. One thing is that the 50% off only relates to certain dishes which you're advised of at the start. Still great value for such lovely food!06/03/2013 00:00:00Fantastic eveningA big thank you to the staff for the fantastic and friendly service, and the food was also really great for both veggie and meat eating guests.02/03/2013 00:00:00Quite the surprise...Bacco is now my favorite little restaurant in London, and this well traveled foodie was quite surprised to stumble upon this neighborhood gem. After touring the nearby British Museum, I used toptable's local search to secure an early dinner reservation. We loved everything about the place. Service was great, wine was good and a reasonable list, with some great piedmontese values, and the food was wonderful. My wife's ravioli chard was terrific, and my lamb rack and neck was perfect, cooked just right, seasoned expertly and served in a great reduction and mashed potatoes. I had a very good tiramisu to top it all off. Can't wait to go back and take friends to show off our find! It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the visit.02/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent dinnerWe had 50% off our food on a saturday evening. The atmosphere was lovely and the food was outstanding. Would definately recomend this place.02/03/2013 00:00:00Cool place to meet and eatLoved the meal at Bacco. Staff don't have enough English or knowledge of the menu to answer questions (not a big deal); the manager was great in resolving an issue about one dish arriving very late. So overall, really good place and I'll book again01/03/2013 00:00:00Service impeccable; great ambienceFirst time at Bacco and used the TT deal of 50% off a la carte (though should have noticed the small print that Signature Dishes are only 25% off,and a lot of them are labelled as such) Octopus carpaccio was stunning - would go back just to have this again (despite its price - circa £13), and mushroom risotto good, though not quite as flavoursome as some I've had. Courses pretty well timed (not too quick, not too slow) and service was the perfect mix of friendly and professional. Frankly I'd want to go back on a business account and try more of their dishes - as good as it was, at those prices I think it's expense-account territory, but either way I will find an excuse to go back soon.27/02/2013 00:00:00Outstanding in every aspectExcellent service, coupled with outstanding food a real winning combination. Thoroughly recommend Bacco in every aspect. One of the best Italian restaurants we tried in a while. Will definitely be returning to try other delights from their menu.23/02/2013 00:00:00Very pleasant business lunchMe up with an old colleague for lunch close to his office. Neither of us had been before and were pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of the food and excellent service. Full of business lunches - a hidden gem.20/02/2013 00:00:00Great service, one of theGreat service, one of the best italians I' ve been to in a long time20/02/2013 00:00:00GIRLS NIGHT OUTWe meet regularly as a group of once work colleagues and require a combination of a comfortable ambience, without intrusive noise and music to enable conversation, excellent food, attentive (but not overly!) service and value for money. Booking through TopTable enables us to achieve this and Bacco was a thoroughly enjoyable evening with a varied menu and 'specials' for selection. We attempt to book a different venue for each occasion but will definitely return to Bacco at some point as it certainly ticked all the boxes for us. The location is ideal being very close to the Underground and good bus services nearby.20/02/2013 00:00:00delcioushad a business meeting here - delicious food, good service, mains took ages but gave us more time to chat!19/02/2013 00:00:00Lovely place for a special occasionI really like this Italian restaurant. With lovely food and outstanding service, I will definitely recommend all my friends to have a visit. They had an amazing rib eye steak before but they changed their menu. It's a pity but there are still lots of amazing food there. Have it a go :)14/02/2013 00:00:00Meeting With FriendsWe arrived was promptly greeted by a very pleasant waiter. The service was amazing and you never felt rushed in any way. The food was outstanding and the portions were just the right size. However I would love to see a larger desert selection as that for me was the only let down. Would recommend Bacco and will definitely be going again.02/02/2013 00:00:00Attentive stafffood rather yummy, ambience very pleasant and staff look after you.30/01/2013 00:00:00The waiters were attentive,The waiters were attentive, but not over bearing, and gave advice on the specials. When we arrived they knew who we were and the deal we had booked. Great vegetarian starter and pasta dish. Toilets are downstairs so might not be great for disabled access. I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.28/01/2013 16:00:00Toptable offer at Bacco was greatThe offer was on a small, but well selected menu. Exceptionally tasty dish of cheek and tongue "Guancia e lingua di bue brasate con purea di patate affumicate e verdurine"'. Excellent value. We ate early but still it was a shame that the restaurant was almost empty - it would make the perfect pre-theatre meal.23/01/2013 00:00:00Superb Italian food, great serviceThis place was a real find - only a few minutes' walk from my hotel, on a quiet side street off High Holborn. The food was beautifully prepared and of the highest quality. The olive/balsamic dipping breads were of the highest quality, my ashed goat cheese with beets and pear starter was amazing, and my main meal (scamorza cheese with aubergine) was stupendous. Wines and cocktails were very good too.
The service was terrific too; friendly without being overbearing. On the downside? The vegetarian options are limited (I could only find ONE vegetarian main meal on the menu - it turned out to be very nice indeed, but it would be good to have more choice). Anyway, a minor quibble...this place is GREAT!18/01/2013 00:00:00I was taken here for my birthdayI was taken here for my birthday by friend a week ago and I am still raving about the food. It's the best Italian food in Holborn by far. Excellent selection - the monk fish carpaccio and the homemade ravioli stand outs for me. Service was very friendly. The wine was delicious...Very impress!09/01/2013 16:00:00BuonissimoI have been to Bacco restaurant in holborn, what experience, food very tasty, colorful and fresh. The staff was so friendly and service was the old school but funky at the same time. I defenetly recommend this place with high standards of food and service. Bravo Bacco .07/01/2013 16:00:00We had a lovely dinner inWe had a lovely dinner in Bacco. Food was delicious and the staff really friendly. We would definitely go again.

The food was cooked to perfection and worth every penny.Highly recommended.06/01/2013 16:00:00nice findgreat little restaurant with an excellent menu. It's rare to read a full menu and for each dish to sound appetizing...but this was the case here.
I will be back04/01/2013 16:00:00We had a very nice meal atWe had a very nice meal at Bacco Restaurant and wine Bar in Holborn for my wife's birthday. The food was superb.The service throughout the meal was excellent - attentive, very friendly and good wine recommendations.Bit quite, I guess is January. Will definitely be going back soon.Highly recommended03/01/2013 16:00:00Pleasant evening mealHad 3 courses (no wine, only water) and will came up to £30 per head, including the 50% offer.
Food was tasty and of a good sized portion. Pity that some of the cheese starters were not available, thus limiting options.
All in all a nice evening but only with the offer. Without the offer and assuming we had wine, £60 - £70 would be poor value.19/12/2012 16:00:00Always brilliantHave been coming to Bacco for many years now although it has been a while since my last visit. Standards have not dropped at all. Menu always well varied and service fantastic! Have always liked this place.14/12/2012 16:00:00Excellent Italian in HolbornWe were impressed with the feel of the restaurant and in particular the quality of the food and the service. The staff were
very friendly efficient but doing so in an unobtrusive way. The menu choice was particular good with a nice selection of starters. The main pasta dishes were really good especially the Venison tagliatelle and the King Prawn linguine. There were also some good quality house/starter price wines. All in all we would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant and would be more than happy to return.14/12/2012 16:00:00A favourite of mineAnother excellent meal. Food is cooked nicely and well presented, with friendly unobstrusive service.
Only criticism: the restaurant should have more authentically Italian bread. A French rather questionable baguette was not the best start to the meal13/12/2012 16:00:00Another fantastic mealI've been to Bacco a number of times now for business lunches. It's always a pleasant experience as both the food and service are fantastic.07/12/2012 00:00:00Lovely as always. Not cheapLovely as always. Not cheap without a deal, but would certainly be worth it for a special occasion.28/11/2012 00:00:00Generally Very GoodFood & Service were excellent, the atmosphere too was excellent- the bill did come as a bit of a shock, especially as we had the 50% deal... but I guess you get what you pay for...14/11/2012 00:00:00tasty foodThe food had a wide variety of ingredients in it.the food had a lot of pasta in it.13/11/2012 00:00:00Excellent service and good foodThis was a return visit to Bacco and as usual the food and, particularly, the service, were outstanding. We were initially shown to a table by the window, which was a little draughty. A request to be moved presented no problem at all, even though the restaurant appeared to be full. The staff really do make you feel special and the service is always friendly and efficient. The mozarella and pepper starter was delicious and my cod main course was perfectly cooked. Very good value indeed with the TT 50% off deal and highly recommended.29/09/2012 00:00:00Good value work dinnerI have ate at Vacco several times with work colleagues and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and very good value and the service is great.
