A word from Bacco Restaurant
Bacco restaurant is family run and well established for 15 years in Richmond. We serve authentic Italian food using seasonal ingredients. We are very passionate about home cooking just like our families in Italy and therefore we make our own pasta, foccacia bread and desserts.

Our service style is very attentive and relaxed.

We have an extensive Italian wine list ranging from small producers from different parts of Italy to well-known vineyards such as Antinori.

Weather permitting, we have a decked forecourt for dining or having aperitivo. Our alfresco dining can sit up to 40 diners and it can be covered and heated during the cooler seasons.

We also cater for large group in our private dining area "Vinoteca" whereby we can sit up to 27 people.

Diner Reviews
  • "A friend and I went to this restaurant on the basis of a recommendation. The service and food were very good but we didn't think it was anything out of the ordinary. We did think that it was a bit expensive but would go again."

  • "Falling in love with my date, rather than eating. However the food arrived on time, I only had three mouthfuls. The spaghetti was flavorsome, with perfect texture. The service was great. I would come here again."

  • "I have been to Bacco several times over the last few years & it is consistently reliable. Saturday was no exception - great tasting food, well presented & accompanied by a very drinkable Sicilian wine! Staff are friendly & efficient, without being over the top. A good all rounder for an enjoyable meal. If you don't mind sitting by the road you can enjoy the experience al fresco, or ask for the table by the window!"

It mantains a higher standard of quality food and service! Although he was being very busy, we got such a great professional service! Lovely veal escalopes, nice wine and flavourful spagheti. We also had the chance to greet their chef while having our coffee. They keep their's promise to make the best fresh pasta in Richmond! Highly, highly recommended."

  • "Booked a table for 4 on a Friday evening and had a wonderful experience. The staff were friendly and attentive from the moment we walked in to the moment we left - seldom have I experienced the level of service we did, the staff were friendly and informative without hovering. We all ordered a starter and a main, and we all enjoyed our choices - even the Italian who was with us! We will be back."
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "The reception was warm and friendly and the service excellent. Not being enormously hungry, we only had a main course and a dessert, but the rest of the menu looked interesting. Obviously I can only comment on what we ate. I had crab linguine - that's what it said on the menu but actually it was spaghettini (I think) and a bit overcooked. The pasta itself, I mean. It was nice, though. My friend had pasta with truffle shavings and said it was good. We both had panna cotta - pleasant if a little oversweet for my taste. But that's just my taste and not really a criticism. I cannot comment on the bill, as my friend paid. In spite of my minor niggles above, I would definitely recommend the restaurant. Do book, It gets very full."
    dined on 28/05/2014
  • "Just everything you want in a restaurant good food, good service, particularly when they know you have a theatre engagement - lovely touches such as the pre-meal treat and the staff are welcoming... what more would you want"
    dined on 16/05/2014
  • "we had never been but the summer 2 course menu at £25 with a glass of wine was a bit limited and poor value compared to the full menu, in fact am not sure there was any saving at all. the fresh crab pasta main we chose lacked flavour and any intensity so the waiter brought extra sauce! all round, ok but not great and seemed pricey for what it was..."
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "Great to go to somewhere on Richmond that isn't a chain. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. The ravioli with goat cheese and porcini sauce was really very good. Definitely worth a visit."
    dined on 08/05/2014
  • "Once again a pre-theatre dinner for four at Bacco in Richmond proved excellent food and value. Friendly and pleasant service and a good choice on the pre-theatre menu. We are always happy to dine here."
    dined on 07/05/2014
  • "Excellent Italian meals, with all the range of individual tastes on a plate which i associate with Italian food. The taste is authentic (as far as I know!) and unpretentious, the service slick, unfussy, and delivered by real people who talk to you. Very nice wines, all Italian I think. The patron greeted us and clearly knows us, even though we only go there infrequently. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for a quiet meal or a small group of people."
    dined on 06/05/2014
  • "everything was lovely. the food, the service and also the atmosphere. The WMF cutlery is brilliant. "
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "Met up with a friend for lunch. Chose this place randomly and what a great decision. Super staff who were helpful and smiley. We both ate the sea bass from the a la carte menu which was spot on. We Would defiantly go again if in town and highly recommend a visit."
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "I booked this to celebrate my partner's birthday and had called in advance to request a bottle of champagne to be waiting for us when we arrived. All evening our glasses were topped up, the waitress was friendly but not intrusive, the food was nice and the portions neither too small or large. Will most definitely go again and will recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to go in the Richmond area."
    dined on 25/04/2014

  • "We had a wonderful dinner with friends. The service at Bacco was very friendly. My husband is Celiac and doesn't tolerate gluten in any shape or form. The staff made sure that the two courses he had was safe for him to eat without compromising on taste or look. This is our third time we have visited Bacco and we have throughly enjoyed it every time."

  • "We had reseved a table which was necessary as the restaurant was completely full. We chose Bacco partly because it had good vegetarian options for my partner. We were very well looked after by all people who served food and drinks - they answered all our questions fully and well. Food was delicious. All ages and combinations of diners that evening which is another very good sign ! I would recommend"
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Very good Italian meal very close to Richmond station and near the Orange theatre. Good choice on the menu and they also have a great offer of 2 courses plus a glass of wine for £25. Wine provided was good."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Opted for a 7 pm meal, place was packed! Then found ourselves in solitary glory when theatre goers exited. Felt a little odd. A very good 2 course and glass of wine offer for £25 with dishes off the menu. The service was excellent and the food very traditional Italian in the best way. Duck salad to start was huge and nicely done with lots of duck. The main course of veal escalopes was a little chewy but with a lovely flavour and they substituted the potato purée for an alternative. The restaurant has a quirky layout with different levels and areas. A very good experience I will be back for more....."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "This was my first time to Bacco's in a while and I was disappointed. In the past their standard has been really high. This time 2 out of 3 starters were not available even though it was just 7pm in the evening. The main course was OK but nothing to write home about. The dessert that both of us wanted as unavailable as well. On speaking to the manager, he got the chef to russle up something similar but again it wasn't great. The manager did compensate with a free drink and coffee but the experience was spoiled as I'd brought a friend there especially because I'd had such a good experience quite some time back. Standards seem to have fallen a lot and they seem to have lost their way."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Without a shadow of doubt our favourite restaurant in Richmond upon Thames . This fantastic Italian Eatery located right opposite Richmond Station. The quality of the food is always up to the mark. The standard of service we receive is exemplary. My partner particularly enjoys the seafood on offer here, I myself enjoy all on offer and sampled the pre theatre special, which was perfectly presented and did the job for me!! This made the bill incredibly good value for the area too. We highly recommend this eatery."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "A great place for a business meal although the place can get a bit crowded. The service is fabulous and the food impressive. The deserts also have that edge of feeling special. I would highly recommend this place for a business meal or a catch up with friends as it is conveniently located right next to the station."
    dined on 31/03/2014
  • "Bacco is a genuinely excellent Italian restaurant. Great feel to the place, very friendly and really excellent food. A definite cut above the norm. The service was a touch slower than I would have liked, but frankly, even that is authentic Italian..."
