This is by far my first dining choice in Georgetown.
I've eaten here several times and it is a mainstay when friends from overseas visit.
The menu is vast and changes frequently. We've had exquisite duck dishes, beef, fish and, of course, wonderful pastas. Vegetables are fresh and cooked perfectly.
Wine list offers excellent choices at very fair prices.
It surprises me that there are disappointing reviews of Il Bacaro. I live in Penang and, generally, have the habit of consulting with the chef and staff on what is freshest and best, before ordering.
There are many constraints on getting top quality fresh foods here, so asking is probably a good idea.
