Passionate about Venetian small plates. Akin to the backstreet Venetian tapas bars which inspired this central Liverpool bar and restaurant, there is something about Salt House Bacaro that makes you never want to leave. Part of Paddy Smith’s Red and Blue group, the team behind Salt House Tapas and Hanover Street Social, Bacaro is all about cicchetti: diminutive small plates, perfectly formed.
The menu shifts with the seasons and availability but favourites include goats cheese pearls with honey and walnuts, mixed Italian meats (Coppa di Parma ham, bresaola and fennel salam or slow-cooked lamb with pecorino. Choose from a clutch of pizzettes and dishes such as Stornoway black pudding with chicken livers in a marsala sauce. King scallop could be served in their shells, while aperitivo include various takes on negroni and Bellini. Timeless good times on tap.
