We were a party of 3 and shared 8 dishes, which was probably one dish too many, but worth it. Loved the burrata Caprese, Brussels sprouts, filet, salmon and gnocchi. Also liked the happy hour drinks.

We have been a few times and always had a good experience and the food was good. However this time it was all quite mediocre. The tacos were dry and needed a sauce. The salmon was fishy and the sangria didn’t taste good at all. Very disappointed and hope it was just an off night.

We were there early so the noise level was not an issue. We stayed in the patio, which I highly recommend. The servings are tapas concept so we ordered enough for 5 people to share. All the dishes we ordered were flavorful and so I am assuming that whatever you choose will not disappoint you.

I ate here with my wife and daughter. We all loved it. There was not a dish we didn’t enjoy. Standouts included gnocchi, hunter Mac and cheese, Burrata caprese, and shishito peppers. For dessert, we especially liked the best cake ever, without bacon but with vanilla ice cream. Service was good and food came out at appropriate intervals. The tree-covered patio was lovely. My daughter says this was her favorite restaurant ever, and she and my wife plan to return this weekend.

We came here for a celebratory dinner with 11 people. The manager was great in helping us pick a set menu and drinks - and they price was more than reasonable. The menu with our custom message on it was a nice personal touch. I really like the space and the semi secret entrance. Overall I would definitely recommend it for a place to celebrate or just grab a nice meal.

We always love everything about Bacari, but please do something about sound control in the interior sitting area. It can get really loud at times. We'll be back soon. Cheers!

If you want a very unique, intimate atmosphere, Bacari is a great place. Between the hidden tunnel entrance, the trees growing throughout the interior, and the fabulous food, service and drinks, this place is truly a special spot to spend an evening. The rose on tap was to die for. We liked every small dish we tried; nothing disappointed. It's a very loud interior, so don't expect quiet, but we liked the vibe nonetheless.

This is a great small plates restaurant with innovative cooking. The staff is very efficient. The food is delicious. As portions are small having the ability to share a variety of dishes with someone else is a good way of experiencing this restaurant. We were there on a Thursday evening and it was packed.

It's a totally charming restaurant with an interesting tapas menu. Most of the dishes are quite good. Our service was excellent. Normally, you can hear better in a courtyard than you can in the interior of a restaurant. Not so here. The noise level was screamingly high. There was a very large birthday being celebrated at a table near ours so that contributed. I would say it's a fun restaurant but don't expect to be able to bare your soul to your best friend here.

Excellent date spot if you can grab a table outside. Enough variety in the menu that the tapas-style works well. Recommend going later at night for best ambiance.

Everything is great here except the service is always hit or miss, primarily due to the small plates system. I wish there was a way to systematize it. I feel like either no one ever checks on me or someone is checking on me every 2 seconds

Very nice patio, disappointed thought for not having aperol spritz. Cicchetti and spritz is a must in Venice. Also salame di Varzi is not from Tuscany but from Lombardy. Everything else was very good. Service excellent!

I came to this location via a friend that was visiting in town and subsequently came back for dinner with another group of friends. The vibe as always was wonderful and when I mentioned to the manager that I wasn't a fan of the shrimp ceviche he immediately took it off the bill. Not something I was expecting or asked him to do. Will I be coming back, YES!
