I booked Bacco for a dinner with friends and was not disappointed. It is a quite lovely little restaurant with good food, reasonable prices and a nice atmosphere. Although we couldn't enjoy it in January, the restaurant also has a small seating area in the back garden, which is very pleasant in the summer. It's a restaurant that I keep coming back to.

We had a great time in Bacco restautant! We went for dinner for two on Friday night and we found the food and the service outstanding!
Food was good quality and served with a smile. Starters were amazing, and I definitely recommend the meat board to share: a nice selection of meats and cheese, well presented and huge!
The lamb shank and the rissotto were good too.
Service was first class. We had Andrea and Georgia as our waiters and they always took care of us, without being too intrusive. Really friendly Italian staff, we felt we were in Italy...."BELISSIMO!" :)
We would definitely return.

We booked the Star Deal via Bookatable which was for "3 courses with a spritzer", but when we arrived we were given the standard menu. I mentioned that we'd booked the offer and the lady went off to check. She came back and said we could have the spritzer but only order a starter and a main course. We agreed because we had travelled out of our way to visit the restaurant, but were very disappointed by the attitude.

The atmosphere was lacking because there were only a few other diners. There were more staff than customers but the service was slow. I had to ask three times for the bill which incorrectly stated we'd been given the 'star deal'. I also notice that they are still advertising this offer via Bookatable which is very dishonest.

This was the first time we had been and we were not disappointed. It is a great Italian restuaraunt with a nice menu that has a range of interesting dishes served very elegantly. The bruschetta (for two) was unbelievable and immediately let's you know that you have made a great choice. Complimented with a tasty Scicilian red at a discounted price the food and quality service made for a really nice evening.
