Mixing a passion for the traditional Italian kitchen with a contemporary aesthetic, Bacco is a favourite restaurant and wine bar in Holborn. As well as a sheltered al fresco courtyard for use when weather permits. <br/><br/>The wine list features bins from some of Italy's finest growing regions, while the menu is bursting with fresh, home-cooked dishes, made using ingredients sourced from Italy, as well as British organic producers. Chef Patron Stefano Piscedda brings with him a wealth of experience and love of quality ingredients reflected in every Bacco dish. <br/><br/>The food here is focused very much on flavour and texture, with ingredients such as breads and pastas made fresh on-site, while specialty produce is sourced carefully from a variety of suppliers.

Totally acceptable, but nothing special.
Two girlfriends and I popped in here for dinner last night. We were mostly drawn in by the promise of their garden where we could eat outside. On that account, the place was lovely.
