The essence of the traditional Venetian bacari with a modern twist!

Delicious Italian small plates, wonderful wine and an extensive bar menu, all in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We pride ourselves on making you feel at home with our warm hospitality and friendly service.

Book a table in our restaurant or just drop in to the bar for a glass of wine or a tasty seasonal Italian cocktail.


At Bacaro we care about using quality ingredients sourced from local producers.

That's why all our meat comes from Owtons family butchers, a local company with a history of animal welfare and sustainability.

Our delicious ice cream comes from New Forest Ice Cream, who only use the finest milk and double cream from local farms.

We care about what you eat because we care about our customers - enjoy!
