Voted Best New Comer 2003 by Tatler, this sophisticated modern Italian restaurant on the King’s Road set is forever buzzing with regulars charmed by the effusive and charismatic manager, Lucky. With his all-Italian staff, he looks after everyone, including celebrity regulars Rory Bremner, Dame Judi Dench, and the hat-loving Jay Kay, who’s partial to the calamari. They say the main attraction is the atmosphere, but the food is worth a serious mention too: specialities are Welsh lamb, superb fresh fish and home made pasta. Everything is enjoyed in an arty atmosphere (walls are adorned with paintings by Mrs Lucky and friends) of conviviality. In summer, a sprinkling of tables are set on the pavement for some close-up posh people watching.

Bacio fits up to 60 diners, but if your group is smaller, say 35, then you can book just the main restaurant where up to 25 of the party can sit together on a single table. Groups of up to 26 fit perfectly in the mezzanine, while 12 to 14 of you are probably best off hiring the bar area. Parties of 20 to 25 are welcome to dine a la carte or reduced a la carte. Any more, you can offer them a set, canapé or buffet menu. A two-course set lunch with coffee is £11.95. Christmas do, birthday bash, hen party, get-together – whatever the occasion, you can bring your own entertainment.
