Great Pasta!

My husband and I ate at a horrible restaurant before we stumbled upon this place. We were so happy to have such great food, service and atmosphere we wanted to come back the next day but were leaving for a cruise. Highly recommend the lasagna! It was delicious!

We were thrilled to discover this restaurant, with authentic and delicious Italian food, well-priced. Plenty of high-quality pasta dishes for the kids, sophisticated entrees and well-chosen wine for adults. Good cocktails, too!

Nothing like their spaghetti vongole, al dente, perfectly seasoned wine sauce and well balance. Great wine selection and prices, including organic wines (Morales) which were very good. Gor for it!!! good ambience also

I have been in this restaurant at least 3 times, usually when I travel for business. The food has been delicious every time. No disappointments. I am returning again for my 65th birthday with a small group of friends.

I had said that for my birthday I wanted to return to this restaurant in Old San Juan. So on Halloween night we dined there. It's a cozy restaurant, their cute little bar invites you to return for drinks and appetizers. The salmon, the raviolis delicious!!! The recommendations on wine pairing great and dessert sinful. I would definitely recommend this... More

Visited this restaurant with the family! We loved it! We had had the Puerto Rican cuisine a few nights in a row and missed some authentic Italian food! This place did not disappoint! Great for kids, great desserts and pastas! Must try!

Came for a romantic dinner and was not disappointed. The food was very authentic (the owners are from italy) and reasonably priced, the atmosphere was beautiful and quiet, nice selection of wines to go with the food. We will be returning, and would highly recommend to anyone.

We were greatly pleased with our meal at Il Baccaro. We shared the inslata Caprese, my wife had the Gnocchi 4 Formaggio and I had the Linguine Bocataio (sp?), with the pink sauce, prosciutto and green peas.
