Bacco Wine Bar: Italian Cheese, Chifley Plaza, Sydney (7 August 2009)

LG03, Chifley Plaza, 2 Chifley Square, Sydney NSW 2000

Cosy Italian Wine Bar

Tucked away and mostly hidden under the escalators of a large office building foyer is the beautiful and cosy Bacco Wine Bar. It's a great place for chillaxing with a nice glass of wine after a long working week. The Prosecco is a good starter and goes down well to calm the nerves. The bar service is Italian and friendly and there's a large open kitchen which hides nothing from it's customers. The very Italian stracchino is a soft cheese yet too mild for my taste buds compared to say a Brie or Camembert but combined with some Prosciutto Di Parma and rocket as advised by the helpful Italian Stefan it makes it more palatable. The other 2 Italian cheeses of Asiago Dop and Gorgonzola Dolce were much more to my liking. The meat and cheese fridge to the side of the bar teases the eyes and stomach with more Italian goodness next time.

For the sweet tooth lovers check out Bacco Pasticceria.

The cheese platter looks so good, and a nice sized serving as well. And I'm loving the decor!
