Rustic Venetian tavern for sharing cichetti, Venetian-style small plates paired with Northern Italian wines. Covertly located down a little winding street a block south of Canal. An inside and outside staircase both lead you to an underground catacomb of exposed brick archways with wooden communal farm tables, illuminated by soft lighting and warm candles reminiscent of the streets of Italy.

Honestly, it wasn’t anything to write home about. The ambience was nice, but the food was nothing special.

Everything was great except the meals tend to have very little protein but overall great experience

Was a nice place, although since it is in the basement the noise level of other patrons can be quite loud at times in the small low ceiling seating area. But it was a nice cozy space temperature and spacing between tables was good.

Food was good, flavorful and served quickly and with enough time between appetizers and entrees. Server was helpful with recommendations.

Server was great - I accidentally spilled something on my sweater and thought no one had noticed seconds later he arrived with a bottle of clothing soap and a bottle of soda water...for me. Thought that was a little above the normal level of service and quite a nice gesture.

Would definitely return based on service and food.

Very attractive, comfortable ambiance, a real old Italy feel to the environment, staff and service was great, quite good menu selection, food was okay but considering how highly we liked everything else, thought the food was certainly not bad but not up to the standards of the rest of the restaurant experience, meat and cheese platter were just okay, grilled shrimp with pasta were soft and over done. Good wine selection. Improve the food preparation a bump up and it would be a favorite place. For now I'll just maybe come back.

I came here with my husband. We were very surprised when our Uber dropped us off because we didn't really pay attention to the address and thought the restaurant was in LES but it's actually Chinatown. It's a casual but cozy spot with great food and very friendly service. We had a variety of apps and main dishes, they were all quite tasty! We would come back if we're even in the area.

Bacaro as become our go-to eatery. We love the ambience and the food and picked it, this time, for a special occasion - a birthday. It was much appreciated.
Love the food choices and the wine list, brick walls, unusual layout.
We travel a fairly long way to get to Bacaro and it is always worth it.

Ask to seat us at 8:45pm for our 9 pm party but one person was missing from our party so they would not seat us. When our 4 th showed up at 9 pm they did not have a table for us and waited for 35 minuets to get seated.

Restaurant was very kind to accommodate changes to my reservation time, and the food was very good. But we found the service indifferent to cold. Waiter came over once and we ordered a bunch of small dishes and asked they be paced out. Almost everything arrived at once (there was literally no room on the table) bussers cleared our plates and we never saw that waiter again until he brought dessert menus. Does look like a lovely space for large parties. We just had an off experience.

Its a cool cavernous space and I spotted Chloe Sevigny there which added to the people watching pleasure.

Bacaro is amazing!!! Great food tucked away in nowhere with refined service and low key excellence. Please don't spread the word...

Overrated. The food nor the service warrant the hype. Very average Italian however the cellar environment is plus.
