A stone’s throw away from Russell Square & the British Museum, Bacco Restaurant is a classic Italian restaurant & wine bar with a sheltered al fresco courtyard. Mixing a passion for traditional cuisine with a contemporary aesthetic, it is an elegant retreat in buzzy central London.

With a wine list featuring bins from Italy’s finest producing regions, the Bacco menu promises a feast of flavours & textures, such as pumpkin-filled ravioli with sage, butter & parmesan, sea bass with braised fennel, olives, potatoes & pine nuts, and rabbit bruschetta with padron chilli pepper & parmesan.

For dessert, try the creamy cheesecake with poached plums, or the chocolate mousse with crispy almonds & pistachio ice cream. Bacco is lined with wooden wall panels in chocolate & coffee-brown tones, and decked out with high-backed leather chairs, and crisp white tablecloths.

Bacco Restaurant in Holborn is a 5-minute walk from Holborn Tube Station. Chancery Lane Tube Station is just a 6-minute walk away.

    Visiting London to celebrate partners birthday. Selected Bacco via the Internet being close to Drury Lane and reviews were favourable. Arrived slightly early but not a problem, well received by front of house (FOH) and offered choice of table (we selected window location). Complementary glass of bubble was offered and birthday wishes were extended to my partner. Good, varied menu that was well explained by FOH with a couple alternatives due to seasonal reasons. Starters chosen were Salmon for my partner and Baby Squid for myself, mains chosen was Monk fish and Trout accompanied with a bottle of Pinot Grigio . Dessert for both of us was Panacota with a slight twist for my partner a sparkler. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive in fact after our first course we felt rather chilly being at a window table, requesting a move was no trouble at all so with a much warmer location our overall experience was perfect.
