Consistently JoyfulStefano and his team at Bacco always seem to manage to make you feel welcome and part of the family. We love coming to this local eatery in Richmond and it sits right up there in our top three for the area, predominently due to the quality and value. The food is beautifully cooked and the wine list well thought through - often with unusual offerings that have real depth. It's a restaurant that lends itself to dressing up for a romatic evening or a casual pre-post theatre supper. Whatever your preferences, you're bound to find something that will suit. Bellissimo!18/05/2013 00:00:00Real ItalianFantastic quality and a real Italian restaurant. In a dining arena swamped by "italian" eateries this is a gem.
The quality of the food is excellent, the service fantastic and the ambience and welcome first rate.
This was our first time to Bacco - it won't be our last.10/05/2013 00:00:00greatgood ambience, good food, good service, what more can you ask for?09/05/2013 00:00:00Richmond Quality Italian FoodPre theatre saw us eating here yet again. The food is always well prepared quality ingredients. The staff polite and attentive.
I had the mussels followed by the veal tagliatelle. Both scrumptious.We like the fact that the menu changes quite regularly so when we do re visit we are always in for a treat. Recommended Richmond restaurant.01/05/2013 00:00:00Good restaurant, great foodI had a lovely meal here with my wife for her birthday. Great little restaurant with good, attentive staff who are only too pleased to offer advice on food and menu choices. It's central location in Richmond makes travel extremely easy with two taxi ranks virtually outside. I would definitely return and recommend to others who are looking for good food and a nice ambience. Three course meal for two with good food and good wine and including service came to £100 which I consider very good value.27/04/2013 00:00:00Good food good serviceWhen you are tight for time and yet want to eat well - this is the place to come. the theatre is I know almost next door, but they make sure you can eat in comfort knowing the food will arrive in time so that you are not looking at your watch. It has the same attitude toward you as if you would be there as an evening in itself, meaning the quality of the pre theatre set menu is superb, all done with grace and warmth.09/04/2013 00:00:00Bacco RestaurantYet again outstanding, service ,food, ambience.all excellent.27/03/2013 00:00:00an excellent eveningI met for abusiness dinner with indivuals from a number of different countries. The food and service was excellent and eeryone thought the evening was highly enjoyable.21/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday supperWe booked Bacco for my daughter's birthday because there was nowhere left in Chiswick! Not quite true but almost. We had a really good meal, great service and a nice atmosphere. So we're going back for another birthday supper, this time my husband's. Easy to get to on the Overground so able to drink without worrying. Also good for a pre theatre meal.09/03/2013 00:00:00Amazing!A wonderful experience overall! The service & the food were both fantastic.01/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent food!I have been a regular at Bacco for a years now. I keep going back there because the quality of the food is consistently excellent and I love the decor and atmosphere. It is truly authentic great Italian food and they have an extensive wine list. The staff is attentive and friendly, overall it's always a great experience.01/03/2013 00:00:00Great pre-theatre dinnerWe stopped in for a pre-theatre dinner on Saturday. No trouble getting a booking. Ambiance is very nice for couples or small groups. Good options for the 2 or 3 course set menu, great wine selection. Service was prompt and friendly, and just a short stroll to Richmond Theatre. Just perfect for the start to a lovely evening out with my wife.09/02/2013 00:00:00Bacco Restaurant, RichmondEverything you require to start a lovely evening, quality food presented well served by top staff.
All round a great experience also to allowing flexibility as we were pre-theatre. Thanks again and will recommend to our friends.06/02/2013 00:00:00I have been going to BaccosI have been going to Baccos for 13 years - they have never disappointed me.
Fantastic food and a wonderful management team who are still actively involved every day.
This is a great example of a family business that deserves to be the success it is.02/02/2013 00:00:00good set menuWe both had calamari followed by salmon. Both courses were well presented and tasty
Nice house white and first class coffee rounded off the meal just in time for us to get to the Orange Tree25/01/2013 16:00:00Best in RichmondThis restaurant always excels and in my view is the best in Richmond. Certainly not the cheapest but in terms of the welcome and the food it is without equal. We have been going for several years but relatively infrequently but are guaranteed an excellent reception every time. Superb!25/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent service and foodThis is our third trip to Bacco, and each time we've been really happy with the food, the wine and especially the service. A great value set menu, and excellent wine list. Thanks again for a great meal out.25/01/2013 16:00:00Good choice!We had a great time at Bacco! Everybody was so lovely and we felt very welcomed. The food was very good. I was impressed that even the pre/post theatre menu had so many options to choose from. I would recommend Bacco to a friend any time!18/01/2013 16:00:00Dinner after the show..We're a group of six regular Orange Tree theatregoers. We don't always eat here as we like to vary our after-theatre venue. Bacco is always at the higher end of our dinner budget, but then, it's also the most reliable deliverer of quality food,.. so welcoming,.. so professional - yet friendly. And its just ten step from the theatre.
We booked for "dinner for 6 at 22:00 (or whenever the Orange Tree play ends)".
The play ended at 22:20 and le Maître de was pleased to see us - even though he knew we'd probably be the last group to leave. It was a great way to end the evening.10/01/2013 16:00:00Bacco - Never disappointsWent in on New Years Eve for a family birthday lunch. Service was attentive and good-humoured as always. Food was beautifully presented and the veal main course was extremely tasty. Even though we were the last of the lunchtime diners and the staff were waiting to close to prepare for the evening, at no point did we feel pressured to leave. This is a restaurant that understands the meaning and value of good customer service.30/12/2012 16:00:00Great night4 of us went to Bacco for dinner on New Years Eve. The only available booking slot was 7pm which we thought was a bit earlier than we would have liked, but it was a perfect night. Very welcoming, excellent service, friendly but efficient, very good food and delicious wines. We were not hurried at all and didn't leave the restaurant till nearly midnight.30/12/2012 16:00:00wonderful mealWe visited this restaurant on new years eve for lucnh after needing to cancel for new years eve dinner. We were given a very warm welcome, the staff were attentive throughout the meal and the food was lovely. Good quality ingredients, nicely presented.Fresh, tasty pasta cooked to perfection.30/12/2012 16:00:00Ticks most boxesWe have been here before and the food, wine and service are good if a little expensive. Meals arrived promptly and was beautifully cooked. Some unusual and rather inviting wines on the list which did not disappoint. Only point being I phoned beforehand to ask for champagne (birthday) and arrived to find Prosecco but they sorted that out promptly. All in all a rather nice experience.26/12/2012 16:00:00Friendly BaccoMy family group enjoyed the friendly and relaxed style of the restaurant's staff and management, as well as the tasty and well presented food and very drinkable house wines. If toptable offer a special deal we'll enjoy going again.21/12/2012 16:00:00Great restaurant lovely foodVery impressed I went with a friend for a girlie night and it was a great choice. The house white was very good and I really enjoyed the ox cheek. Chocolate fondant pudding cooked perfectly too. Would recommend. Only niggle was it took ages for the waiters to look at us when we wanted more water, the bill etc.20/12/2012 16:00:00Fabulous central Richmond venueWhat a lovely restaurant. The decor is simple and elegant, and the service is excellent, with nice little touches such as complimentary nibbles and bread. The pre-theatre menu is great value at £15 for 2 courses, but whilst this restaurant looks pricey the main pasta dishes are actually very reasonable as well. Will definitely be returning.10/11/2012 00:00:00Back to Bacco Again and AgainBacco really has become our staple local restaurant for a number of reasons. The staff take such good care of you, the food is consistently good with some great menu options that my husband always takes advantage of whereas I'm predictably requesting vongole which they always do without failure despite it not being on the menu and the wine choices, reasonably priced, never fail to deliver. It's intimate without being dreary and caters for all types of gatherings. Look out for their special events where they showcase a region with food + wine. Great little restaurant.11/10/2012 16:00:00Predictably GoodThe service is always so attentive without being intrusive at Bacco that you're always guaranteed a super time. The food is fresh and well prepared. The restaurant has such a lovely family feel that it's a home from home each time we go - which is increasingly more and more when considering a local venue. The wines are a good range and reasonably priced. I always go for the same - off menu vongole - but my husband is more adventurous. This time it was fish cakes and liver (not together I hasten to add). Both cooked really well. The liver just melted in the mouth. We will definitely be back - including their themed wine pairing night in September. Expecting a great evening.24/08/2012 16:00:00Bacco Restuarant, RichmondFor high quality, well prepared authentic Italian Cuisine visit here.
Absolutely puts some of the neighbouring chain food establishments to shame. Staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming.
Starters were very well received by us both and despatched with gusto. The main course was equally delicious.
Will eat here again, as many of my friends who recommended to me continue to.18/07/2012 00:00:00Excellent Local VenueBacco is increasingly becoming a main contender for our favourite local restaurant. It's consistently enjoyable on all aspects - ambiance, food and a good wine selection, all reasonably priced. The team are always happy to welcome you and have exceptional pride in their restaurant. Always a joy and we will continue to provide them with well earned and deserved repeat business. If you're in Richmond and haven't yet been to Bacco, suggest you do so as you're missing a treat.22/06/2012 16:00:00We took my brother and sister-in-laWe took my brother and sister-in-law to Bacco last night. Risky as they live in Budapest and travel the world experiencing the best in fine dining but I needn't have worried. As always, the service, food and wine didn't fail to impress in such an unassuming setting. With all the Richmond restaurants to choose from, Bacco still sits as a firm local favorite and we have become staunch fans. The calamari starter was so fresh and the mixed seafood excellent. Off menu vongole for me as usual. Fab.10/04/2012 16:00:00It's always a lovely, predictableIt's always a lovely, predictable experience at Bacco which really has become a firm local favourite. I was somewhat disappointed that my secret off menu Vongole featured as a special on the menu this past Friday but that's just being selfish. My husband had the seabass and it was plentiful and grilled to perfection. There was a large group of 40+ which made the experience seem a little disjointed (them and us) but the staff were as attentive as ever. Will continue going back time and again22/03/2012 17:00:00Another enjoyable meal atAnother enjoyable meal at what is definitely becoming one, if not the, favourite local restaurant Bacco. The staff are wonderful, the food wholesome whilst still on the verge of fine dining. Surprised that not more people have cottoned on to this little wonder but that's fine as there's usually a table for us at short notice. For lovers of vongole, if you give them notice they will produce a super plate with really decent sized clams even though off menu. Gorgeous.09/02/2012 16:00:00Just really can't get enoughJust really can't get enough of Bacco when a reliable, quality and local dining experience required. Really is becoming a firm favourite in Richmond. They still seem under the radar a bit which adds to the appeal as we can, for the time being, get a table at quite short notice. The home made pasta dishes are wonderful and they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Lovely little eaterie.12/01/2012 16:00:00
