Story Behind Il Bácaro

It is a typical Venetian hostaria or tavern, usually located in the back streets of Venice where friends meet up to enjoy a glass of wine while sharing “cicchetti” (small plates of food) and simple Italian dishes.

Why Choose Il Bácaro?

Although Penang offers great Street Food, IL Bacaro is a little Italian oasis offering a taste of La Dolce Vita while in Penang, plus we are proud to be Michelin Selected 2023! Check out our ever changing Specials board, or take comfort in traditional favourites such as homemade Gnocchi and delicious Tiramisu, even visitors from Napoli have raved about our pizzas! We offer good, honest, freshly cooked Italian food using locally sourced seafood and vegetables combined with 100% Italian products and recipes from Mamma! You can also enjoy our food at home with our Takeaway & Delivery Service or even buy Gift Cards for Friends.


Venetian Cicchetti

Pronounced “chee-KET-eeh,” cicchetti are Venice’s answer to Milan’s aperitivo and to Spain’s tapas. They’re small plates of food, usually nibbled over with glasses of wine and among friends in the evening or at lunchtime. Our cicchetti are fun to share as a starter or if you just fancy a light bite, but like everything at IL Bacaro we like to mix it up so expect something different every time you visit.
