Closed completely for over a year now. The owner has not moved into a Public House in Newport.. It is believed that this closed because they could not get a good chef.

Has closed down. Not suprised. Our meal was not the best. I would expect to hear at least one italian accent in an Italian Resturant. Service was very impersonal and the food was in short supply. The main course was ok however the dessert that...More

We were staying at the nearby hotel so Bacaro was very convenient. The early bird menu was very good and reasonably priced but I could not resist the spicy king prawn tagliatelli from the main menu! The side salads are great as is the garlic...More

This place promises so much on entering. When it first opened a few years ago it really hit the mark. The decor is rustic v modern with quirky but interesting wall decor. The atmosphere is cosy. Service is pleasant, swift and attendative. However, the wine...More

  • Location: Europe  >  United Kingdom (UK)  >  Wales  >  Southern Wales  >  Newport
Bácaro is named after the bustling taverns of Venice, they are typically a great meeting place for friends and represent a wonderfully relaxed, convivial and back to basics environment devoid of the pretentious trappings of modern dining. A place where the hectic modern lifestyle can be left far far behind ... whilst in its place ... laughter & merriment, socialising and good times. At a Bácaro guests traditionally enjoy an 'ombretta' (a glass of wine) from simple tumblers with some 'cicheto'. Cicheto is derived from the Latin word 'ciccus meaning 'littlest quantity', and Bácaro is derived from the word 'Bacchus' which is the God of wine and intoxication.
