Very good Lasagna with Caprese salad delicious. I had Italian Beer and my wife white wine. I could be five stars with better lighting and table cloths. Overall a good experience.

We've been to Italy and have been very disappointed with the good after returning to the United States. We tried this during our stay in Puerto Rico. The lasagna is amazing. It's been my favorite meal of the trip so far. Service was good and friendly. It's only open for dinner, but its worth the wait.

The food is excellent! The lamb chops were probably one of the best that I have ever taste. My first time here, but I totally recommend it. Order the Tiramisu, its great!!

I have the opportunity of visiting Il Bacaro many times. The food has always been at its best.. The Ravioli's are a mouth watering event. Have taken friends and they have all like it also. Many have returned.

Chase the food with an excellent Primitivo Italian wine. The place has a nice atmosphere with a blend of tourists and locals, mostly residents of Old San Juan. All reasonably priced. Worth... More

The food and drinks were delicious! I don't remember the name of what I ordered, but it was a rice dish with steak.. amazing! My friend ordered the chicken gnocchi.. also amazing! We were happily full with leftovers. I couldn't have asked for better service either - friendly and attentive! The restaurant is smaller, but definitely worth it if you... More

We were looking for a break from 4 days of local PR food and went for Italian. Il Bacaro Venezia was a very good choice. It is a small establishment with very good service and an excellent bartender. The Mojito was excellent but the house sangria was just ok. For appetizer the crab stuffed mushrooms topped with pink vodka sauce... More
