A trip to the city is a good excuse to make time to visit Il Bacaro.
We begin with the bruschetta of the day:
Bruschetta with pumpkin goat cheese and walnuts
Toasted bread topped with a creamy puree of sweet pumpkin, topped with crisp roasted walnuts and goat cheese.
Quail broth with quail stuffed cannelloni
A rather fuzzy photo of a rather good dish - clear quail broth, served simply with micro herbs and a quail stuffed cannelloni
Wagyu carpaccio, Sicilian anchovies and parmesan
We've enjoyed variations of this dish in the past and as usual, a tasty example of carpaccio
Pork cutlet and belly
Orecchietti with buffalo ragu
Rhubarb ricotta crumble with prickly pear sorbet
It's a welcome return to the crumble, this time it is partnered with prickly pear sorbet
Peanut semifreddo, caramel poached pear, aerated chocolate
With this combination of flavours and textures you can't go wrong.
