I didn;t have a good time at this hotel and found the management rude so probably wasnt in the best mood to try their restauarant. Even in a good mood it would be no better than average and the place looked like it needed a paint. In terms of fire safety this place should not be operating in my opinion.

I would have given 5 stars after first visit last week - and this week we came back, and suddenly the quality and taste of the pizza bread was very different from last time. This worries me a bit, but this is with no doubt one of the best italian in Georgetown - basically because they try to cook the... More

We went there due to recommendation of a chef. We really enjoyed the Chiccetti, chef's selection of nine dishes. Three different types of croquets, snapper, bruschetta, pancake, grilled vegetables, clams, and prawns. Love the basil panna cotta with berry sauce and the mint soda drinks. I didn't know what panna cotta is and a guy, probably the owner showed us... More

One can have too much of Malaysian food, and to find an Italian restaurant in Georgetown, a great welcome from the owners Roberto and Nardya, followed by a detailed description of the menu and specials, made for a very refreshing change. The food that followed, the service, and being joined by the owners, made this a special occasion. After much... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant for to celebrate a birthday of a friend. There were about 20 in the group. We pre-ordered our meals. The entree, main course and dessert were just excellent. They were all served most efficiently by friendly staff. The atmosphere in the restaurant is cozy and welcoming despite being in the midst of... More

Ate at this restaurant This week, it is located in Georgetown Penang in the boutique hotel Campbell house. The service and food were great and after eating local food for several days, it was a nice option to try some Italian food . Fresh ingredients and interesting dishes made this a great choice at a very reasonable price.

RESTAURANT During our five night stay in George Town we found ourselves enjoying the food and ambiance of Il Bacaro twice. The dining room seating is very comfortable, the room is nicely decorated and the air conditioning does not make one feel they are dining in a meat locker. The owners and staff truly make one feel warmly welcomed and... More

We were craving some Italian food and found Il Bacaro in Campbell House. It has a lovely atmosphere and I must say I would like to try the guesthouse next time! The owners were present and the staff were very attentive. We had a selection of starters followed by a pizza and seafood pasta which was delicious. Regrettably no room... More

At our second visit to Il Bacaro I decided to try the lychee martini, it was so good that I wanted to have another one but we had already ordered the wine with our meal but couldn't resist having another one with dessert and oh yes the food is awesome as well. Nardya and Roberto are the perfect hosts, always... More

Tried this restaurant when staying at Campbell house. The food was fine and good quality, but it was nothing special compared to other Italian restaurant we have visited. Prices are a little high compared to Penang prices.
