Welcome to Il Baccaro Restaurant based in temple bar Dublin. An Eighteenth century wine merchant’s cellar in the heart of Dublin hosts this atmospheric Italian tavern since 1997. A romantic restaurant and wine bar tucked into a secluded corner in Meeting House Square. Authentic Italian food is the order of the day and this charming taverna is a hit with native Italians across the city.

Good last night meal in Dublin

We went there our last night in Dublin without a reservation and had no trouble getting a table. The food was really good, the service was good too. Prices seemed slightly high, but this in the Temple Bar section so to be expected. My fettuccini was homemade and delicious.

Just back home but still have the marvellouse taste of the incredible meal I had in Il Baccaro. The 'saltimbocca alla romana' were simply brilliant! Highly reccomended

My first visit to this authentic Italian restaurant in the Temple Bar area of Dublin with a group of ten friends. The venue itself is atmospheric, down a few steps from ground level and shaped in wine cellar style. The welcome was warm and we found the staff both helpful and friendly. Additionally, they speak Italian so it is an... More

Even though we arrived quite late for our reservation, staff were very kind and welcoming. Antipasti to start severd with crusty bread, I felt like I was in a small eatery in Italy. Veal "saltimbocca" for main and my partner had scoglio pasta. Both amazing. Our lovely waiter recommended an excellent organic white Capolemole. All in all a truly wonderful... More

This restaurant looks good enough but the menu is very limited and the waiting staff are very unfriendly in a subtle way. They are all smiles to your face but not so nice in reality. I was sick for days after eating here. There are very few options for vegetarians so I asked for a vegetarian version of the risotto.... More

We were recommended this Italian restaurant by local bar staff and other Dubliners " if you want an Italian in Dublin then this is it " . My brother-in -law is the Manager of a well known Italian restaurant in Edinburgh so I'm used to good quality food. My 3 friends and I who all love Italian food said this... More

We decided to try Il Baccaro after reading several reviews on it, and must say we were very impressed with both the food and the level of service we received. The restaurant was bigger than we expected but the layout of 2 separate vault rooms really made it feel warm and personal. We starters and mains and both our meals... More

I dined very recently with a very good friend in IL Baccaro. We availed of the pre-theatre menu which gave great choice & value for money. The meal was served in a very timely manner allowing adequate time between courses. Our waiter was both professional & friendly and seated us close to a radiator as the night was rather cool....
