Baccomatto swaps Surry Hills for Randwick

Homeless Surry Hills restaurant Baccomatto is headed to the suburbs.

With its former digs slated for development, Baccomatto closed its doors last month.

But the restaurant will reopen in December at Newmarket Randwick, at the new Barker Street development where Hello Auntie is another confirmed starter.

Its owners aren't concerned about location, arguing its tucked away original Surry Hills site always made it a destination restaurant. But there will be tweaks.

"When we first started we were more of an osteria, but over the years it became a bit more upmarket for my liking. I like things simple," co-owner Mauro Marcucci says.

One of the changes will be the introduction of Roman-style "pizza a taglio", which will be sold by weight or slice.

And fans of Baccomatto's giant horseshoe-shaped bar can rest easy. They've retained the marble and the bar will be rebuilt in Randwick.
