Review of Baccomatto Osteria
Baccomatto Osteria is located in the Cambridge Hotel in Surry Hills.
Mauro Marcucci, the man originally behind that much loved Melbourne restaurant, Caffe e Cucina has created Sydney’s very own rustic Italian gem. Cafe by day, Osteria by night, whatever time of day, you’ll be welcomed with open arms at Baccomatto.
The ultra modern decor centres around a magnificent marble bar. While the decor may be a little stark, the warm and friendly service more than makes up for it. In fact, this was some of the best service we’ve experienced in a Sydney restaurant in some time.
The Italian wait staff sing the menu with their lush accents – they are knowledgeable and you get the feeling they genuinely want you to enjoy your experience at Baccomatto and they certainly do their best to ensure you do.
The dinner menu starts with a selection of share plates, categorised as ‘marinated’, ‘fried’ and ‘grilled’, as well as a variety of cured meats and cheeses. The main menu comprises a selection of pastas and risottos, a few meat dishes as well as sides. It is not an extensive menu, but it doesn’t have to be.
This is rustic Italian fare – not fine dining. Refreshingly, the food is not too fancy, simply tasty, Italian fare. We get it, and we like it.
