Probably one of the best meals, Italian or otherwise, that I've ever had - both in and outside Italy. The skill and attention that went into each dish was obvious. Il Bacaro was the highlight of our trip to Melbourne.

Certainly one of Melbourne's best Italian restaurants,whilst not cheap it really is great value for money and worth paying extra for a memorable dining experience. waiters were attentive ,with impeccable timing.Their was not one dish we had that was not sensational. A truly memorable dining experience.

This is a small, intimate, busy place. With low lighting and great atmosphere. We love the place. I'm sure if the bar was half the size you could double the number of tables, It's huge!
Service can vary a little, but is generally good - maybe depends on the waiter?
Food has always been a highlight, but last time we dined here most dishes were VERY salty!! We did mention this to the waiter, but whether it got back to the kitchen is another matter! Will continue to dine here and would highly reccomend it, so long as the chef keeps an eye on that salt.

Il Bacaro Overview

Translated as ‘God of wine’, Il Bacaro Cucina e Bar is the epitome of Venetian style in the heart of Melbourne. First opened in 1995, Il Bacaro is certainly no stranger to acclaim and continues to impress diners and critics alike. A long, horseshoe-shaped bar and intimate, low-lit dining room exude timeless Italian inspired style; polished hardwood floors, rich leather banquette seating and a Venetian air of allure and are exquisitely inviting. Sophisticated but subtle service makes for longer lunches and decadent dinners. Contemporary Italian classics such as spaghettini with Moreton Bay bugs ‘olio visadi’, garlic and rocket solidify Il Bacaro’s status as a Melbourne institution; diners congregate for feasts that may begin with seasonal Oysters and end with agave nectar cheesecake.

Il Bacaro Menu Sample

Wagyu carpaccio, dill mayonnaise, pickled radish, white anchovy, pink peppercorn and quail egg.
