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.

We were running late so rang them up to ask to delay the table for half an hour, which we didn't think they'd be able to do due to our reduced booking. However they were extremely accommodating and...more
Amazing house wine.
I enjoyed their asparagus salad as a starter to share with my sister. The perfectly poached egg with delicious parmesan is a must try! This dish alone got me back into Asparagus. The location is wonderful, and the service is impeccable! They offered complimentary bread as they were a little busy servicing the large party next to ours - and THAT is wonderful service!
Fantastic little Italian fare. Good pasta and fish. Very authentic, just like a momma made back in the old country. Service was excellent. They knew I was Italian and treated me like a king.

I sheepisly had to tell hiim I didn't...more
