What a charming restaurant. Maitre d' was a delight. Waiters friendly. Food very good. Calamari starter was tender and tasty. Both starter and main of the day were beautiful - duck carpaccio and a pulled-pork dish the Italian for which is beyond me. Really enjoyable lunch. Thank you.

Starter and main course truly delicious, light and yet filling. Service excellent, ambiance pleasant and welcoming. All this with sensitive service and fun company too. A recommendation to me and one I would echo!

The food is wonderful, and very good value for money given the quality. On top of that, the service is excellent - professional without being condescending, friendly without being familiar.

A colleague and I dined after work on a Square Meal booking that secured 50% off most of the food – just as well, as with two courses, no appetisers or shared plates, and only a few beers (no wine), we still blew over £80 including service. The a la carte menu (50% discount) inspires confidence, with a reasonable but not over-long selection of dishes, and a good deal of variety. There is also a specials menu (25% discount), which seemed quite long for a list of daily “specials”, and we stuck with the main menu. We were not offered any set menu/fixed price offers (maybe these are not available in the evening?) My colleague's calamari and vegetables in batter was nice apart from two things – the portion was enormous for a starter (an unusual complaint, I confess!) and the batter was highly salted. Neither of these two “failings” prevented him clearing the plate (OK, I helped a little…) My starter of stuffed aubergine was very tasty, though the disks of parmesan were over-cooked and chewy. My main was lamb with ratatouille – delicious, well cooked and looked great. My colleague's seafood pasta was once again a huge portion, but extremely well presented; indeed, I got the impression that presentation is a strength of Bacco. There is also a degree of adventure in their taste /ingredient pairings, and it's a menu I would like to revisit. Service was attentive and relaxed (as in friendly, not as in slow), with an amusing running joke about the inability of one of the waiting staff to pour beer. Overall a very good experience, but I was grateful for the money-off, as otherwise I would have sorely tested my company expense limits!

This was our second visit here having discovered this little gem in Holborn. This time we came with friends and it was every bit as good as our first trip. The marinated au regimes and pork belly were delightful. We will be back…

Saw the offer on Square Meal and thought we'd give it a try. We weren't disappointed! Food was excellent, service was great and we'll definitely go back.
