Description
IL Bacaro is a cosy authentic Italian restaurant found within the heritage boutique hotel Campbell House. We are Pork Free, open from 8am -11pm serving coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails and ever changing Chef Special’s. Recommendations to try include “Cicchetti” small sharing dishes typical of Venice, Pizza, Antipasti Platter with imported cold cuts and cheese, plus T-Bone steak cooked to order, homemade pasta and fantastic fresh fish. A selection of imported Italian wine from the Veneto and Tuscany regions are now available, grapes include Refosco, Chianti, Malbec, Shiraz. Open for over 6 years it is a favorite with locals, expats and tourists.
