“Happy Returns”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

On our first visit to Baccomatto in May we had found easy [mid-week] parking in the area and we were also impressed with the restaurant's acoustics. As a result, we organised for a group of six to dine here on a Tuesday evening in June. We had no trouble parking and were relieved that once again the noise level was moderate, allowing our group to discuss some work related matters.
From the moment we walked in the door the service was excellent and could not be faulted throughout the evening. Some of the food was very good and all was acceptable. Overall, it was a very good dining experience and we all enjoyed the evening.

“A great surprise find”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

This wonderful Italian restaurant was a big surprise find for me. Baccomatto Osteria serves some of the best Italian cuisine that I have had in Australia. I dined there on four nights and was never disappointed. The restaurant is popular. Each night from Monday to Thursday in late May, it was nearly full. This is a sure sign that I am not the only one who enjoys this restaurant.

The atmosphere is vibrant yet comfortable and cosy.

The serving sizes are sufficient for most people. They are neither too small nor overly full.

There is a variety of food on the menu to appeal to most tastes. They changed the menu after a couple of days and the offerings only got better.

The staff are friendly. They willingly attended to all of my requests. I realised as I received my main serving that I had forgotten to ask for a side order of vegetables. It was no problem for Baccomatto Osteria. The waiter returned with a plate shortly after.

I recommend dining at Baccomatto Osteria.

“Solid, but room to improve”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I went with a large group at short notice with small children, so that must be considered. Food reasonable, but could improve. In fact the entre's were better than the mains. Whilst service was ok, a little slack in initiation. Limited wine list and mainly Italian. Room for improvement and i feel they will.

“Top marks!! Delicious food and all...”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

4 of us went there last night triggered by a special promotion. Xan the manager was delightful and so helpful with our food suggestion. Lovely atmosphere, homemade bread were to die for. We enjoyed every dishes! Desserts were very nice too, hot chocolate pudding with peanut butter filling and red wine poached pear....! Price are real reasonable, we will definately back for more next week, and will sit on the counter and watch their action.

“Go with Friends”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

We went to Baccomatto with some friends for dinner mid-week. We were greeted pleasantly at the door and were impressed with the modern fit-out and atmosphere. After a slow start, the service was fine. Our table shared a lot of small dishes for starters and followed with a main. The food was good, without being outstanding. We were delighted with the acoustics, which enabled us to have a conversation with our friends. We intend to return.
