One of the best Italian restaurants in Melbourne. First class service with a good selection of pasta and main dishes to make a great dining experience. Comfortable decor and well spaced tables and chairs permitting appropriate business discussions or private conversations.

In Melbourne and had heard about Il Bacaro from friends .
It is a stylish small restaurant in Little Collins Street and has Venetian style food on the menu.

The waiter that greeted us had allot of attitude and once he worked out that yes I could understand what he was saying he swapped with another waiter who was knowledgable and charming,the food is fabulous and we had a lovely evening.

... it can just be a rip off. carpaccio "the classical Italian starter" came in a seared version. Comment: that's how we do it here- ok, but they should mentioned it on the menu. Arugula Salat with fennel was the best dish of the evening. Gnocchi, the special pasta of the day, without any taste and cooked far too long. Parpadelle with goat ragu and truffle pecorino- the same story.... tasteless and more fat than meat. In total we had 2 salats, 1 carpaccio, 2 gnocchi, 2 parpadelle, 6 bottles pellegrino, 1 bottle white vine( $55),3 macchiato =$390.-
PS: we ordered a second bottle of wine, but this had a cork, which ended up in a discussion and was finally accepted after 10 minutes... "you have a really good nose". They could not provide another bottle as it was then "sold out."
A huge disappointment 2 points just for the Skat and a tasty olive oil on the table

We had lunch here with friends and thoroughly enjoyed all three courses and thought it was value for money. The bread was good as was the olive oil that accompanied it. The calamari entree was light and the pork for main was excellent. We chose sides of marjoram, garlic potatoes and wilted spinach with Parmesan. For dessert, the agave cheesecake looked like an artists painting on a plate. The service was also first class by the gentlemen and extremely helpful when our friend was undecided which wine to chose to go with the main dish.
