About Il Bacio

Dear diners, please note, Friday, Saturday and Sunday bookings need to be made before 12pm on Friday.

Italian food is always a popular choice for those looking for a night out in Essex, and at Il Bacio, they are lucky to have one of the best around. Visitors to their restaurant on Forest Drive in the centre of Theydon Bois are met with a menu packed with Italian favourites, from meat and fish dishes to pizzas and pastas. For a starter, we’d plump for the tagliere di Affettati, featuring crisp Sardinian bread, pecorino cheese, salami and parma ham, before the main event. Meat-lovers will enjoy the pan-fried calf liver with butter & sage, or for fish fans, there is a house signature of spigola, sea bass cooked in foil. There are plenty of classic pizza options too, so you can be sure of finding something for everyone when you visit Il Bacio. Take the tube out to Theydon Bois from central London for an Italian meal to remember.

Love this restaurant, the food and ambience are lovely. Very reasonable prices for great portions. By far our favourite local restaurant that we can walk to.

We took our granddaughter for a midweek treat. We had generous portions of great food with good service, and a lovely atmosphere. Will definitely go again.

This was our first visit and we really enjoyed both the food and ambience, we will definitely return. My only tiny grumble was that there was not a whiff of booze in the tiramisu which was very disappointing.

Nice setting for a date. Really authentic restaurant. Lovely food at good prices. Only negative was the dessert (creme brûlée which had a strange taste). Would definitely go back.

Had a lovely Sunday afternoon lunch with family. The team were attentive and accommodating to our requests to change tables and answer questions about the menu. Good delicious!

Was very busy resulting in very long waiting time for our food. Steak not cooked to one of our party liking. In fairness they took this and all drinks off final bill.
