B’acino Wine Bar

Time Out says

An intimate wine bar in Shoreditch. Although the place has Italian roots – shining through in a selection of pasta dishes – B'acino also takes inspiration from other European countries. Their wine bottles mostly come from Italy, with a scattering from France, Portugal, America and Chile.

As soon as I walked into B’acino I felt cosy and at home. I was greeted as if I was a regular - which I am now! It is a gorgeous setting for the delicious wine and cuisine. Owner Judy and chef Mirko are real chefs cooking with heart. Knowing I would be served authentic Italian food, my expectations were sky high, and still the dishes blew my mind. I am especially addicted to the lasagna of the day! I am a small person and yet I polish it off every time! Other times I just want some nibbles, and I love the fried calamari and padron peppers. I have brought many people to B’acino and they love it just as much as me. I can’t wait to bring my wine lover friends to meet Judy and her fantastic wine selection. My wine fan friend said it was her “perfect place” and I couldn’t agree more.

B’acino only opened at the end of June 2017 but is now a firm favourite of places to visit near my work. Tucked away in Scrutton Street in Shoreditch, it is a bit of a gem.


Extensive wine list and some firm favourite cocktails including Aperol Spritz, there is plenty to choose from.

Sometimes with a wine bar, you don’t get quality food but B’acino proves that wrong. Offering a variety of plates with Italian heritage (the chef is from Sardinia) but with a twist / fusion of other cuisines, it makes a really interesting menu, which changes seasonal.


We had a selection of the Chef’s platters, which are designed to be shared. Around 4 dishes should be enough for two and if you are still, hungry you can get an all day platter. We had the DUCK CONFIT: Slow cooked duck leg, broccoli cream and roasted cauliflower and PULLED PORK ON TOAST: 24h slow cooked pork served with guacamole & red peppers. I absolutely rated the pulled pork on toast, which had a bit of a kick to it and was absolutely delicious.


We also tried the SUNFLOWER RAVIOLI: Stuffed with veal served with butter, sage & chorizo, which was SO good (I mean who doesn’t like chorizo) and the BURRATA: Fresh cheese from Puglia, cherry tomatoes, pesto & crispy bread, which was creamy and tasty Lastly, we had the HALLOUMI FRIES: Served with yoghurt dressing, pomegranate & mint, which were the best I have tasted.


All in all, I was super impressed with the food and you could really tell it was high quality and fresh. The are three rooms over two floors, the decor is rustic and the service was great, with the staff helping us choose our dishes.

B’acino offers “After Work Aperitivo” where you can have a bottle of wine from 4-7.30pm and choose a complimentary all day platter. They also appreciate that, being near the City, some people need to have a quicker lunch. Luckily, the offer an express lunch Monday – Friday between 11 and 3.30 when they have a special lunch menu and promote a main and a soft drink for only £9.95 or a main and a glass of house wine for £12.95. When I visited the dish was chicken milanese, which looked excellent.


Absolutely recommend B’acino!

Located next to curtain road and open to the street, Bacino is a brand new place that is worth the try!

It offers a clever mix between classy and traditional: fake mold tapestry, polished, cracked wood tables, and modern LED bulbs on the ceiling, to a limited but clever selection of mainly Italian wines, and traditional dishes served in small portions but beautifully presented... look out for the asparagus raviolis!

As the place is still fairly new, it wasn't full when I went and I had the feeling it is still building up its identity and clientele. But staff is very friendly and we were offered a free platter when buying a bottle!
