Ideally situated minutes from Bow Road, Mile End, Bethnal Green and Victoria Park is Bacaro, which opened its doors in Roman Road in February 2016.


The restaurant offers modern Italian cuisine with a simple but effective menu. We opted for the crispy duck lacrime & blueberry sauce to start – good blend of flavours and very tasty.

For main dishes we chose the pumpkin tortellini with sage, pumpkin and cream and the casarelle & ragu:

Both dishes were decent portions and well presented – I particularly rated the pumpkin dish. There were plenty of other dishes I was tempted by including the risotto, sausage with white beans and roast lamb. Good excuse to return!

Bright, modern interior with beautiful fairy lights around the restaurant and good service. I have found my new local restaurant!

Price for two people with two courses and two alcoholic beverages was around £50. Also check out the weekend specials – 2 courses for £12.95 and 3 courses for £15.95.
