Bacaro Italian Tavern

Home of the Original Eggplant "Meatball"

Inspired by the Venetian bacaro—a typical Venetian wine bar where people gather for bites and drinks—Joseph Bonacore and Thomas Soluri opened Bacaro Italian tavern. It is their second restaurant together, and they’ve created an environment that simply exudes warmth and joy in Massapequa, NY. Featured in the New York Times, their signature item is the Bacaro Eggplant Meatball. While these may be called a “meatball," they are any vegetarian’s dream, containing no eggs or nuts, but all the same flavors and textures. These are great served over pasta or in between slider buns, or just doused in their delicious marinara sauce!

We're not the only ones who love them!

Bacaro has been featured in The New York Times as well as numerous local publications.
