On August 14 was my lovely wife's birthday and I invited her to a date in this beautiful place in the middle of Old San Juan, just a few step from where I work. The place is gorgeous and the ambiance has a remarkable resemblance to one of those in Italy. Actually we felt like we were in his home... More

We were in Old San Juan for one night and looking for just the right place to have dinner. Il Bacaro was recommended by friends so we decided to check it out and we were so happy with this choice. Its intimate and quaint, great service and one of the best lasagnas I've ever had. It came with vodka sauce... More

Went tonight with an 18 person group. expected increase time services due to group size. Atention was above average. Appetizers were more than good and quite large. Food was superb.

Loved it! The rest. is pretty small, but very elegant. The service was good and the waiter was very nice and helped us pick the perfect plate for us, being our first time visiting the restaurant. The food was delicious!!!! Can't recommend a specific plate. Everything on the menu sounded really good. The prices are perfect for what they serve you... More

Not only was there nothing to complain about, in no way could the experience have been improved upon. The service was prompt and frequent enough to keep the table clear without being intrusive. The drinks were cold and refreshing, the bread was hot and delicious, the server didn't make us wait before telling us the specials and taking our order.... More

We just went last night to dinner here. We actually arrived 15 minutes before they opened at 6pm and returned a little after 6. My husband and I had the special of the day : filet mignon with penne pasta and mushroom ravioli. Both were very good and with it. Let's just say we left both our plates completely clean.

We thought it was odd to have Italian food in Puerto Rico but heard it was wonderful, and it was. Fabulous appetizer with fried calamari. Dreamy lobster and shrimp ravioli and wonderful shrimp risotto. Lovely, small, room with a European feel and great service. It was a fun break from tapas, a truly great meal.
