    Despite getting a booking reminder 48 hours in advance of our meal there, all eight of us arrived to find it had shut two months earlier. Nobody had told us. If you like looking at newspaper covered windows rather than eating, you will love Bacco. If you like having to arrange alternative eating arrangements with nil notice, you will feel at home with Bacco. If you want a nice meal, tough - you're too late

    The service and attenion to detail was extraordinary. I have two young guests not feeling well that day and the waiter has gone out of his way to come up solution for the meal which was not on the menu. The kids were very happy with the meal.and ate them all. They were feeling pampered with the excellent service.

    We had a table of ten following a business awards ceremony in London, the restaurant is convenient as it's next to the Premier Inn where we were staying, we also dined at the restaurant 2 years ago when we previously attended the awards. The staff are excellent, good service and the food is lovely. In the summer i expect the rear courtyard area is very pretty and a little diamond hideaway from the busy London streets.

    We have eaten in this restaurant several times and always found the food and service very good. It's a good place to go if you don't like noisy restaurants, you can hear each other as the tables are well spaced apart. We have only been on a Saturday, when there is an offer through open table which makes it good value.

    I booked the restuarant on the 50% off offer and it was such good value. The food was delicious and service excellent. It was quiet but it suited us fine for a quiet catch up. Also it was a Wednesday evening so may be busier on other nights. Overall lovely restaurant.

    Made a last minute reservation for two. Just wanted some decent menu, classic Italian pasta and wine. But because it was Valentine's Day, they setup a v-day set menu.. with very limiting options. For £55pp which we only realised towards the end. Wouldn't mind paying the money if I enjoyed the food. Ambience, service all aside- food was not up to mark at all. Desert was the only good part I guess. My partner left most of the food from each course. Totally isn't worth it. But again, may be the menu is better on a regular day. I felt mugged! Just because it was V day, the price for things were overpriced. And when I asked for a regular menu, they said they are only doing Valentine's menu. How ridiculous! For the price we paid, I could fly to Italy, have a decent meal and be back the same day! As an avid Italian food lover, I was heart broken. I am sorry but I shall not be returning.

    I really recommend this restaurant the food is very good. It is the second time that I'm eating in this restaurant and both time I really enjoyed great food and service. The risotto with saffron was amazing and the Tiramisu wow I just don't have words for it... it was really that good and trust me as a good Italian I know how to make a good tiramisu. :)

    Booked a table on Saturday for a simple dinner for 2 before a birthday party. On arrival to the almost empty restaurant, I was promptly given a table by a fire exit, (which I asked to change to a table away from the door and in a more pleasant part of the restaurant). The chair at the first table had also seen better days and sank down as soon as I tried to sit in it, which was another reason I asked to move. On being seated at my new table I was given 1 menu, even though I had booked a table for two. The waiter seemed disinterested frankly. When my partner arrived she was left to sit at the table for quite a while without a menu until we requested one. We ordered our meals and drinks, then had to ask again for bread, instead of it being brought to us. The first course of fried calamari was tasteless and bland, with more breading than squid and at £15 a portion it was not good value at all. When asked if I enjoyed my starter, I told the waiter that I didn’t like it as it was very dry. My £16 spaghetti crab was smothered in tomato sauce and it could have been any kind of protein in there, tuna, sardine, it’s impossible to tell. My partners seafood orecchiette was adequate, but was still £18 Desert was a dark pannocotta which was ok. £8, we asked to share one and two were brought to us, so 1 was sent back. The bill came to £115 (including an obligatory 12.5% service charge), and with a top table discount on the starters and mains knocking £30 off that total to make it £85, I really don’t feel this place is either good value for money or worth visiting again. The food was bland and indifferent, much like the waiting staff and the decor. I feel this is a tired West End restaurant, knocking out overpriced and sub standard food to people on business or shopping. If you are going to spend £100 you should expect a great meal and considerate service. This was very far from that.

    I've been here twice for lunch - as it happens with a vegetarian - and it was exceptional both times. I really really want to come back in the evening and splash out as the menu and the wine list both look fab, and they can really cook here. It is very good value with the special offer. And the service is lovely.

    Had the 3 course meal with unlimited wine/prosecco for £35. The food was absolutely delicious and incredibly good value. Considering that it was unlimited, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that both the wine and Prosecco were very nice. The only thing I would have liked to see would have been more options for the desserts in the set menu. The service was speedy, and our waitress was lovely. We had a very nice time - would definitely recommend!

    We had the £35 set three course menu with unlimited wine and despite the food being somewhat unexciting, it was very good value. The starters were excellent but the main courses slightly less so. The restaurant has a lovely relaxing atmosphere and the service was wonderful. I'd certainly return but perhaps go a la carte.

    Delicious food in a lovely restaurant. We were a table of 10 and all enjoyed our chosen. It is well worth making an effort to get to this restaurant, which is in fact only 5 minute walk from the tube. They even put a candle in my desert and sang happy birthday, which was lovely. We will definitely be back.

    Food was fantastic, we both ordered the crab pasta and the cinnamon panacotta to share. The gentleman who greeted us initially and served us most of the time seemed very hostile, other than that the food was great, the design and setting of the restaurant was very nice, i was absolutely in love with the romantic ambiance of the washroom. Would definitely recommend.

    This is my 5th time at Bacco and we chose the unlimited wine + 3 courses offer. The set menu that came with this was a wee bit limited but the dishes were indeed up to Bacco's usual standard so it didn't matter in the end. I had pappardelle with rabbit ragout and my friend the chicken leg dish; both of us happy with our choices. We both had the squid to start and again very happy. After the first couple of glasses of wine one does need to prompt a little for a refill but they do so with good grace. Service really good and ambience too, though it wasn't very busy the night we went. This is a firm favourite in the area now for me.

    UNA NOTTE BELLISSIMA - We were looking for a nice, cosy spot for a girly get together after not seeing each other for a number of years. Having all lived in London before and been lucky to enjoy many nice restaurants around town over the years, we wanted to try somewhere new and Bacco did not disappoint. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were greeted with smiles - the ambient lighting, beautiful decor and authentic Italian staff and Front of House made us realise in an instant that we had made the right choice. We went for a set menu with wine and prosecco and were treated like VIP's the whole night. Nothing was too much trouble and we were not rushed, but enjoyed a lovely long evening of freshly cooked Italian cuisine, flowing wine, great atmosphere and attentive and personal service. We had a giggle with the wait staff - the place felt like a fine dining establishment, but it was so relaxed and friendly, you were instantly at ease, a kind of 'home away from home' feeling. We all agreed that this was now to become our official "Renunion Restaurant", each time we have the chance to get together. Grazie a mille for a wonderful night - we will be back! :)

    A group of eight of us meet several times a year and have always switched location each time, down the years. We enjoyed Bacco so much the previous time that we went back. Now nobody wants to go anywhere else in future.
