Really enjoyed our dinner. Very helpful staff, great atmosphere. Good wine list. The satnav system took us to the rear of the restaurant, so look out for a more accurate address.

I have dined twice in the last week, once solo and once with my wife. It was a Monday evening 7.00pm and the restaurant was quite busy but we got a nice table for two in the corner. The decor is attractive with high ceilings and nice lighting. Cynthia was our server and explained the menu and the Italian style tapas offering of small plates and sharing. You can order all your food or call up dishes to suit your own pace. It is cooked to order and the flavours were beautiful. I loved the Salt and Pepper Squid and the Shrimp and Crayfish Fettuccine. Service was helpful and the timings were good. Nice house red wine and another good eating experience at Bacaro. A popular place with a calm ambiance and attentive staff. We will be back soon.


Went to Bacaro with a group of friends to celebrate my 30th and had the best time! Sindya served us, she was kind and attentive. There were so many gluten free options which were all delicious!

Exquisite What a fantastic restaurant. Fabulous decor and atmosphere. The staff were so friendly and helpful without being instructive. The food was utterly sublime. We will definitely go again.


I love this restaurant, my favourite! Delicious food, a welcoming and warm atmosphere with friendly and attentive staff, nothing is too much trouble! Can’t wait for my next visit!

Went there for a birthday lunch and was pleasantly surprised with food and how delicious everything is, but most importantly I was shocked how good the service is. Can honestly say the service is the best in Southampton!! Will be retuning and 100% recommend coming here.

We came as a couple on Monday evening for a meal and it was definitely the best one we have had there and it has been hard to top as the food is brilliant. We had such a good night atmosphere was amazing staff were brilliant as always. Our waitress was Hannah and she was fantastic and very professional. Lovely cocktails lovely food lovely staff and lovely atmosphere. We have been there a few times and there will be many more to come. Thank you

Such a wonderful place. Food is absolutely amazing. The arancini is sensational. The staff are fab. So welcoming and chatty. Highly recommend and I certainly will be returning.


Food cold. Over charged. Staff rude and patronising. Rita’s is so much better in Oxford street. Also they charge 10% service charge. Ridiculous


Had an amazing meal at Bacaro! Highly recommend this restaurant. Connor is making some of the most amazing cocktails. Sophie is running the show like a boss! Give these people a raise! Can't wait to bring the family!

Gr8 food, small Italian style tapas, excellent service, gr8 cocktails. Atmosphere was fun, live music. Only downside was it was very loud with the high ceilings, so had to shout to talk in a group. Would definitely recommend though & will def be back.

Bacaro deserves nothing less than 5 stars in my opinion, I came here with a group of 6 to celebrate my partners birthday and had a wonderful time. The staff are very accommodating and friendly, I mentioned in passing that we were here to celebrate a birthday, and they helped us with our surprise cake and even gave us a £5 voucher. The price, albeit traditionally expensive for what you could find, is more than fair for the quality of the food and drinks, which all combine to make an exceptional place for a celebration.Vegetarian options: Plenty to choose from even for someone as picky as I amParking: Can be a little tricky if you don't know the area, but plenty is available


I was quite disappointed. Food is nothing special. The rocket salad was tasteless. The pasta with shrimp needed salt. Service was good.


The food was excellent and arrived very quickly. The atmosphere is nice and aesthetically pleasing. Sindija was our host and provided exceptional service.
