    Was not offered seat inside. Service was not the best second hand ice bucket.

    Appetizers were quite average, but mains were really good. Service was good, but very hot outside and inside of restaurant. To be fair, restaurant did not charge us for appetizer we did not like. So we are overall satisfied.

    The staff was friendly and polite but the food was extremely disappointing. The worst meal we had during our one week stay in Rome.

    We've been visiting Il Bacaro for many years. After tonight we won't return. So sad. Starters were OK. Mains were over priced and overcooked. The desserts were good, but took forever to come. Unacceptable when they were already prepared and just needed to be laid on the table. Wait time was excessive both between the courses and especially for the bill. (Something we already expect when dining in Italy!) Many years ago this was a fine restaurant. They obviously have a different chef now. Too bad they have not maintained their high level of food and service. We were looking forward to another wonderful evening at Il Bacaro, but instead were sadly disappointed.

    I don't want to leave a great review, because I feel in love with the place and want to keep this gem to myself. Great food, lovely staff and located in a small back alley :)

    Unfortunately this recommendation from our daughter was disappointing. The dishes she praised were no longer on the menu, and our choices were not so inspired. The olio and alio pasta was bland and the chicken dish was nothing particularly special. Perhaps we were expecting too much. The table was wobbly and we weren't allowed to choose where we sat as we were only two. But minutes later another couple were 'allowed' to sit there. There was a family party going on indoors and the service deteriorated during the evening. Sadly we left without feeling as though we'd spent a romantic evening in Rome.

    Small restaurant with a small but varoed menu. The fettucini ragu was oustanding. The brought an amuse bouche of salmon pate on tortilla and a glass of prosecco. We shared a cured meats platter which was interetsing and good. Then we ordered different pasta dishes, they actually brought us a small portion of the others pasta - wow! The wine menu was daunting and confusing but they brought glasses of ‘local’ wine which was fine. 66 euros for two was very good value would definitely return.

    Really nice and cozy atmosphere. I would be concerned though if the place fills up, it is likely to be overcrowded and noisy. Would certainly avoid on weekends.

    On a cold January night, Il Bacaro was warm and inviting. The octopus starter (the daily special) was beautifully presented and well-prepared with some indescribable spices. We both had the lamb crusted with pistachios and really enjoyed it. The ricotta quenelles were a nice balance. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    Unfortunately the food wasn't good at all. The meat was dry and the Caesar salad was maybe the worst which we've tried
