great decor – iit's one of my favorite spot for dating ....good food .....typical venetian ...i love the cellar
Citysearch Editorial Review – Behind its glass facade, this candle-lit Italian wine bar and restaurant (from the team behind Nolita favorite Peasant) proffers a menu of delectable edibles and a nice selection of--surprise, surprise--Italian wines. On the ground floor, scarf-clad 20- and 30-somethings occupy large, medieval-style wooden tables, but the prize seating is in the basement, a cavernous dungeon filled with hidden corners to get romantic. The menu offers a spin on traditional Italian dishes, with standout apps like spicy meatballs and asparagus topped with a baked egg, and sumptuous entrees like whole wheat pasta with duck ragu and a sliced skirt steak that hits all the right flavors. Buried among a flurry of colorful Chinatown awnings, Bacaro's slightly obscure locale is at once a blessing and curse: Think of all the people who might not find it.
bad choice – really bad food and just decent but overpriced wine in an astoundingly beautiful setting. too bad indeed. you get the best of it by looking from the outside!
A charming menu of Italian-influenced dishes includes a meat and cheese plate, gnocchi in a mushroom sauce and a pork shank. No plate exceeds $20 and most can be easily adapted into a full meal, should drinks turn into dinner
Intimate ambiance, good food - definitely worth trying at least once. – Beautiful small restaurant. Charming, warm and intimate - very rustic, exposed bricks, candles and wood. Not the trendy scene for people watching, best to go on a date. Food was good. Their octupus potato salad aptz is very much worth skipping - there were three octopus pieces in the whole thing, but only $9. Both their polenta and risotto dishes were fantastic! We ate at the bar, to observe and to get a feel for the place from the bartender - he was very attentive, after warming up a bit. Overall, it was great, definitely worth trying at least once, you wont be disappointed.. you may even fall in love. It wont break your bank. No reservations.
Editorial Review – From the people behind Nolita favorite Peasant wine cellar comes this equally fabulous Venetian wine bar.
