Morton-Taylor’s favourite Italian restaurant in The Hague is a modestly decorated neighbourhood joint, offering superbly prepared and authentic Italian food. Choose a full meal consisting of an antipasto, pasta and a main course, though the antipasto and pasta alone are more than enough for most. There are only a few tables at Bacco Perbacco, so early booking is essential. Also, prices are reasonable with main courses hovering around €20 (£17), and incidentally, it doesn’t serve pizza. The restaurant lies north of the city centre on the way to Scheveningen, well away from the main tourist strip but readily reached by tram.
