262 South Water Street
Providence, RI


a split concept Italian Restaurant offering a unique dining experience in Providence, Rhode Island. The name Bacaro comes from Bacari, a regionally specific word from Venice for a wine bar, a gathering place for friends to meet and share in a quick bite and a glass of wine. The Venetians chose the word Baccari (plural) from Bacchus- the Roman god of Wine.

Bacaro is an Enoteca (Italian Wine Bar), Salumeria & Cicchetteria. The first floor of Bacaro houses the Salumeria which is a wonderful display of all the cured meats and cheeses we have to offer. Customers who dine on the first floor have the opportunity to watch the Salumeria chef hand cut and prepare all the assorted cured meats and cheeses to order. The restaurant’s main menu is printed in house daily and reflects the food & philosophy of Italy. The second floor of the restaurant offers dramatic views of the Providence River and Downtown Providence as well as the open kitchen where the chefs can be seen preparing the meals for the guests.
