Description: Bácaro is named after the bustling taverns of Venice, they are typically a great meeting place for friends and represent a wonderfully relaxed, convivial and back to basics environment devoid of the pretentious trappings of modern dining. A place where the hectic modern lifestyle can be left far far behind ... whilst in its place ... laughter & merriment, socialising and good times. At a Bácaro guests traditionally enjoy an 'ombretta' (a glass of wine) from simple tumblers with some 'cicheto'. Cicheto is derived from the Latin word 'ciccus meaning 'littlest quantity', and Bácaro is derived from the word 'Bacchus' which is the God of wine and intoxication.

It pains me to leave this review but I feel I have too. First time visitors and received a warm welcome and great first impression. Had the creamy mushroom Brucetta to start and was not that impressed. The sauce was very tangy to which we asked for fresh basil to help cut through the sauce to which they said no... More

I have eaten here a few times now and love the place. I like the way it has a little bar area allowing you to have a pre meal drink if you wish. The menu is great, real variety for an Italian and you want to choose it all! The service is always good and the staff are friendly and... More

I eat here around once every two weeks. Food is always at least good and regularly delicious. Staff are always welcoming and service perfectly acceptable. I'd rate it 5 stars if all the meals were as good as their best. I think sometimes it is very small things that stop 4 becoming 5. Too much oil in the oil/balsamic mix,... More

Booked online for a table for 2 for a quiet get-together and catch up with an old friend. Good menu, with a reasonable choice for vegetarians and some of my favourite dishes! Staff were new and not really up to speed yet, but they were suitably attentive and with great personalities. The food was excellent, wine was sensibly priced and... More

We've been meaning to visit here for a while as big fans of the Ridgeway (sister venue). We ordered from the set lunch menu and were not disappointed. Good value, with risotto and steak included as mains. Beautiful tiramisu for dessert and a cheeky butternut squash soup to start. My husband plumped for the whitebait starter and brownie for dessert... More

I was lucky enough to manage to grab a last minute table here in the run up to Christmas for a family meal with my parents. The food was amazing and really fresh. The chocolate brownie dessert was one of the best brownies I have ever had in my life, warm.. gooey.. perfect. But what really made the meal was... More

This is such a wonderful little place. Took us completely by surprise, the location should not out you off. It is such a cute restaurant, as soon as you walk in you feel as though you are not in a business park. Lovely decor you can tell they have spent time and money taking the time to make it look...

Bacaro is still a relatively new business and with the Italian restaurant scene seemingly in boom, I imagine the owners and staff are looking for new and fresh ideas to keep competitive. My girlfriend and I only found out that Bacaro catered for breakfast by chance when we stopped by to check out the evening menu and it just so... More

My husband and I went for a meal on a busy Saturday night, we were looked after by Charlie and what a fantastic experience that was. The restaurant was very busy but the staff didn't fail to give the best service. The food was, as usual stunning. Looking forward to the next time!
