What they say:

A venetian-style bàcaro has opened in the heart of London. Augustus Harris sells Italian produce all day long; here you can buy nothing but the finest pastas, wines and olive oils - and in the evening you can settle down for some cichetti with your choice of magnificent wines or classic cocktails. Going for a "simple and honest" approach to food and wine, founder Charles McDermott wanted "to create a place where you could enjoy beautiful ingredients over a drink and be drawn into the bàcaro experience". Sounds very very nice.

What we say:

Yet another stunning bar has come to Covent Garden! The walnut clad walls, a bronze bar, large mirrors and stunning candlelight give this place a warm and welcoming feel where you just want to relax for hours. Their friendly and light atmosphere goes perfectly hand-in-hand with the simple, yet delicious, cichetti! That's not all though, their bar display will have you wanting to buy up the whole shop!
