We went there to spend some time with my hubby without kids. I ate beetroat with goat cheese. The harmony of these foods was amazing. We drank Italian rose wine, I closed my eyes I felt I was in Rome.

Food was of the highest standard, ambiance was ok, service was also ok. The waiter we had was not attentive and I don't like restaurants using excuses of busy evening or rushed off our feet. You know Valentine's Day is your most profitable day of the year so make sure there is plenty of staff to make the night a... More

Got recommended this place from friends at work so decided to try for my birthday meal and we weren't disappointed! We all had garlic bread with cheese to start which was the best i've had in a while! I had spaghetti carbonara for my main, there was just enough and it was really good! The crepe with chocolate was amazing!... More

Just fancied Italian tonight, and this restaurant is just around the corner from our hotel. So glad we came here. The food is delicious!! The cheesy garlic bread was enormous, tagliatelle porcine wonderful and light and the spinach ravioli to die for. Very busy and obviously popular and very reasonably priced. Staff were great too. Wish we could transport this... More

As we left the restaurant, a member of staff or maybe the owner shook our hands as we left, asked if we had enjoyed our meal and thanked us for visiting. This speaks a thousand words. We had enjoyed our meals, great menu and lots of different choices. The meals arrived in good time with the right amount of time... More

Came here on a Saturday night with my partner, my mother and her Boyfreind. We were late for our table but it was no problem. Hadn't been here before but heard some great things. Lovely decor, staff were fantastic throughout. What I believe to be the owner is always around making conversation and making everyone feel welcome. Food was beautiful,... More

Al Bacio is unfailingly fabulous. Not only is the food across the menu second to none, the ambiance, service and whole happy experience is impeccable in a way that is natural and unfussy. Al Bacio is unique. It's an experience that lifts the spirits.
