Baccomatto Osteria is one of the best restaurants in Sydney. Fabulous welcoming staff, yummy food, brilliantly cool decor and an atmosphere that will have you coming back for more. Why go anywhere else?
I could tell you about the amazing food, the beautiful room and the amazing plates and wines but what truly defines this place is the feeling of home. The beauty of this restaurant are the people in it and how warm and welcome you feel. There is really no place more comfortable to be we will definitely be regulars here!
Baccomatto Osteria is a sophisticated, bustling, Italian restaurant in Surry Hills. The staff are exceptionally welcoming and the food is very good. This is not your check table cloth and candle Italian, but something entirely contemporary.
Great atmosphere in restaurant, with a positive buzz. Staff were attentive and knowledgeable, especially around the mainly italian wine list. Entrees were able to be shared and the carpaccio and spicy salami we're highlights. For main I ordered the pork cutlet, which was a good size and beautifullly cooked, and had me chewing the bone. An excellent dining experience.
Nice atmosphere and very friendly and professional staff. It was quite busy even on a Monday so might be a good idea to book a table as we did. The food was delishious, lots of options for any taste. The wine list is quite good. Great place for celebrations or a date. Weekdays offers/specials make it a pretty cool spot for a catch up with friends. Definitely will be back.
