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.

Has closed down. Not suprised. Our meal was not the best. I would expect to hear at least one italian accent in an Italian Resturant. Service was very impersonal and the food was in short supply. The main course was ok however the dessert that was served had turned. Then to find out that they has served the same dessert... More

My wife and 3 friends had booked a table for Friday night ( and left their phone number) they arrived at the restaurant to find it closed, no notice on the door that they could see :-( Apparently it closed a few weeks ago, it's owned I...

My mother in laws lives fairly locally and this place used to be much better. Food was extremely slow to arrive despite having two kids with us this wasn't taken into consideration. We ordered calamari for all to share and maybe should have taken more notice or waitress could've informed us it came with a very spicy chilli sauce...kids of... More

Just returned from lunch the place was empty. Visited due to the reviews. Starter was ok fried mozzarella balls. Sauce was a bit bland and the mozzarella balls no different from what you can purchase in any supermarket. Partner had steak which was well done, had ordered medium but was very tasty. I ordered penne arrabiata with rocket and Parmesan... More

Visited Bacaro a few weeks ago and had a really good meal, the service was a little slow but not too bad. Went again today. A quiet Monday evening, after reading the menu online was looking forward to trying certain dishes only to find them not available. Service was very slow, waited over 30 minutes for the food to arrive... More

We were staying at the nearby hotel so Bacaro was very convenient. The early bird menu was very good and reasonably priced but I could not resist the spicy king prawn tagliatelli from the main menu! The side salads are great as is the garlic flatbread. Recommend a visit.

This place promises so much on entering. When it first opened a few years ago it really hit the mark. The decor is rustic v modern with quirky but interesting wall decor. The atmosphere is cosy. Service is pleasant, swift and attendative. However, the wine (red) is quite weak in taste for the price. Example, £20 for a bottle of... More

Obviously popular, A disappointing first visit which will not be repeated. Although the quality of the food was very good, several options were not available, our meals took ONE HOUR AND TWENTY MINUTES to reach the table. Staff were not particularly friendly. They had the cheek to add a Service Charge to the bill !
