    We enjoyed a lovely dinner meeting with business partners. The experience was certainly worth the walk from the tube station. The service was really good and helped us to create the right atmosphere for our meeting. Great wines, great food at a good value/cost ratio.

    Il Bacino is consistently good. Whether it's Pasta, pizza, fish or meat we have always had a good meal and there is always something new on the specials board. The Skate wing was particularly good this time. Our waiter always makes us very welcome.

    Our first time at this restaurant but we we’re disappointed. Head? waiter (with two watches) was very knowledgeable, charming and seemed very proud to be there. The other waiting staff didn’t engage or respond to anything! There were a couple of senior members of staff, one discreet, the other a bit intimidating. He seemed to be very busy taking to staff and friends, very loudly. It doesn’t feel like customers come first. For the food. Pizzas and flat bread are good. Oysters poorly shackled and one a bit suspicious. Prawns in cocktail sauce - prawns were hard - not fresh but brined. Expensive shellfish risotto tasted good but the prawns hadn’t had their dirt track removed and the dish lacked colour. The crab in the ravioli was a bit mushy- tinned perhaps? The pasta was perfectly cooked but the creamy sauce was very thick, rich and a little split. Perhaps some lemon would have helped. Table was wobbly which is annoying and the terrace plants and the terrace needs some TLC. We left feeling underwhelmed but the Sardinian chap was fab.

    Wow what a lovely little find! Pretty restaurant opposite Tabacco Dock, beautiful location. My girlfriends & I were going to the Junipalooza festival for the afternoon & wanted some lunch beforehand. Lovely friendly staff that gave such a great service. Explained all the specials & happy to advise/recommend. I had the Crab Ravioli from the specials which was one of the best pasta dishes I've had. The Ravioli was packed with crab meat & absolutely delicious 😋 My friends had the Sea bass & Lasagne which they all really enjoyed. My friends Sea Bass was filleted infront of us! Lovely selection of cocktails, beer & wine. Had a lovely man serve our food, who asked us if we were ready for our mains, didn't just serve it straight after our starters. Just little things like that, quite old school which was perfect. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone. I will be visiting again soon. Thank you I'll Bacino, myself & my girlfriends had a lovely time!

    Fabulous little Italian. We found it as we wanted somewhere to eat pre theatre. We have been back several times since, and last time we even missed the theatre as we were enjoying our meal too much! The specials board always has delicious fresh treats with lots of fresh fish and pasta. Wine list also great. Staff super.

    Exceptional service, wonderful food and very large portion sizes - the perfect spot for our 'smart but not over the top' business lunch after which our guests were very impressed (and full!) I would also suggest that given the location, this restaurant offers very good value for money. Really impressed/highly recommended. Thank you.

    We were regular mid-afternoon visitors during the warmer months, enjoying the spacious terrace. This time we were inside, our regular wonderful waiter, Alessandro, and as usual the most tasty and copious meals that we know of in the area. Everything we try on the menu is full of flavour; the salads are incredibly fresh, my choice this time was lasagne, a huge perfectly cooked portion that more than satisfied.

    We went for Valentine’s Day and expected a little more… It took ages to get a first drink and our food. The quality of food was okay but not great and the starters were very odd and simple. Too many tables bunched together. Quantity over quality for them and won’t be visiting again.

    Fiorentina Pizza - Awesome Mushroom Risotto - Awesome Pannacotta - Awesome The only thing that disappointed slightly is that I like my yolk on the Fiorentina runny this one wasn't - also the hot chocolate wasn't good and we sent back but they took it off the bill. Apart from that very good indeed and would defo eat there again.

    Having had too many disappointing overpriced meals lately this restaurant was a very pleasant exception! We didn’t have long as we were soon to attend a graduation ceremony at Tobacco Dock opposite but the food came promptly and freshly cooked. The grilled salmon was delicious and sirloin steak was cooked to perfection, far superior to one that recently cost more than twice as much. Even my daughters veggie ravioli was delicious and for once, there was plenty of choice for her on the menu. Altogether an exceptional experience and would love to return if back in the area.

    We’ve been recommended this place from a friend and we totally loved it. Probably the first Italian restaurant where I felt to be really in Italy. We tried a bit of everything, like pizza , risotto , pasta and grilled fish and everything was delicious and tasty. The service was also great and very attentive. Thank you so much to our waiter Danilo which took care and offer us the best experience. We will definitely come back!
