DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Everything about Il Tratto Ra Ro suggests a restaurant beholden by the local community. There's the plaque announcing its opening in 1999 by the Mayor of Concord; its location in the cosmopolitan hub of Majors Bay Road; the permanently festive atmosphere brought on by hordes of happy diners packing the room out nightly; and the queues of hopefuls loitering outside, lured by the legendary status of Il Tratto's thin crust pizza.

If you're not a local, a visit to Il Tratto might leave you wishing that you were. Run by the Viscontini family, it's a vastly welcoming place where good-natured gluttony is celebrated, and wood-fired pizza is king. Housed in a brightly converted shopfront, the split-level space buzzes with activity, as staff deftly meet the demand for authentic Italian fare: ricotta and spinach croquettes topped with gooey gorgonzola, finger-licking garlic, tomato and chilli mussels, and baskets of house-made bread to mop up the sauces. Of course, it's the pizza that shines brightest, with toppings ranging from the brilliantly simple bianco (oregano, rosemary, garlic and olive oil) to meatier options like the casareccia (tomato, bocconcini, marinated field mushrooms and Italian sausage). A great value BYO, pizza lovers will agree that Il Tratto is well worth the journey from just about anywhere (south of Naples, at least!).

We arrived with no booking on a Friday night in June but were very quickly seated upstairs. Here the good experience stopped. The room was freezing with no ambience...overhead lighting, no candles on table, no fire in the lovely fireplace..awful. No water served to table. Our food arrived after four other tables that arrived after us were served and the food on the whole was ordinary. The minestrone soup was good and hot. The waitress nice but won't go again as not inexpensive.

Travelled from the Central Coast to meet family for Sunday lunch a tthis restaurant. There were 12 of us ranging in age from 9 to 90 and not one person had anything negative to say. Food, staff atmosphere all wonderful. Maybe I will have to have 2 birthdays a year to celebrate.
