Bacco Italian Restaurant, Richmond

Bacco Italian Restaurant, Richmond

There are a few very good Italian restaurant's around the Richmond area, but if you look hard enough you will find one or two good ones - one being Masaniello in Twickenham who do genuine Italian cuisine, and A Cena in East Twickenham is also popular, although their staff aren't as friendly as the other places and honestly, they take themselves too seriously, I love Italian restaurants because they make you feel welcome - these guys are the exception. But one place I enjoy going to is Bacco in Richmond. I have also stumbled across a restaurant in Whitton that serves authentic food - their burrata is the real deal here, not the fake stuff (mozzarella and burrata are prepared completely differently so if someone serves you up mozzarella instead of burrata, tell them) you see in Italian 'styled' restaurants.
Burrata - A ball that has stringy interior with cream or milk inside and is wrapped like a wonton inside a mozzarella case and should be tied with fronds from a type of leek.

So if you want to go to the best Italian in Richmond I would recommend any of these restaurants. On this occasion I will be highlighting the food from Bacco in Richmond. Bacco went through a refurbishment in the summer time 2016, and it now has a lovely outdoor eating area in the front of the restaurant perfect for summer. They've re-furnished inside with gorgeous rustic tables and now have a lovely modern yet rustic interior.

Bacco also do tapas with Prosecco so if you feel like somewhere for post work drinks its perfect. They also have a very good wine selection. Its located close to Richmond train station and the Orange Tree and Richmond theatre so is a good place if you're after a pre show meal.

Prices range from 8-10 pounds for a start and 13-15 pounds for a pasta and 16 to 24 pounds for meat.

Le Salon Prive Restaurant, St Margarets Twickenham

La Salon Prive (The Private Lounge) is actually a newly re-invigorated, and much needed refurbished Brula - a French Bistro restaurant based in St Margaret's, Twickenham for over 15 years.
The restaurant went through an ownership change back in January (the former owners having connections with other Richmond restaurants, La Buvette and A Cena, as well as Covent Garden restaurant Joe Allens). The new proprietor happens to be the same owner of a very popular Italian restaurant, Bacco, in Richmond. Bacco is one of my top Italian fine dining eats and here's a review of Bacco here.

La Salon have kept the lovely glass stained windows but have totally redone the inside. Formerly the restaurant resembled something similar to your geriatric granny's living room - it might seem charming but it really felt like it had been under-invested, incidentally a similar theme also exists at Richmond restaurant La Buvette. After La Salon's refurbishment the room feels much lighter inside,…

The Petersham Hotel Restaurant Richmond
Things are looking up for Petersham Hotel, they have a new Head Chef Adebola Adeshina who seems to be proving a winner for the restaurant, and I was to discover why. 
Adebola is a popular chap (fanboy's in my twitter stream confessing their love), he is most certainly friendly, has oodles of experience to match and it is understandable why, he is an all round nice guy. Adebola worked at a number of top London eateries, starting out at Gordon Ramsay's first restaurant, Aubergine before moving on to Gordon's 3 Michelin star restaurant on Hospital Road. He's also worked with Marcus Wareing at Petrus, Philip Howard at the Square, ...I mean, what more could you possibly want?
I was lucky enough to score an invitation to discover the new chefs cuisine, and as usual I always like to have full disclosure that this was a sponsored visit. I have however dined before and found the standard excellent enough to recommend Petersham as one of …
