Square Meal Review of Al Boccondi’ Vino ?

Eccentric, but in a good way, this characterful trattoria has won the hearts & minds of Richmond locals. Wine & oil bottles, & displays of fruit & cheese, are crammed into the already cluttered room. Tables are so close together that diners often start conversations with their neighbours. Customers must leave the ordering to chef-proprietor Riccardo. He serves four or five antipasti, whatever ravioli he has prepared, & a main course (slow-cooked chicken stew or suchlike). He also chooses the wine his guests will drink & seems inconsolable if they refuse his pièce de resistance, the tiramisu. Since the kitchen only has to concentrate on one menu, each component is usually well-prepared, but diners need to be hungry & easy-going to enjoy a meal. Explain any dietary requirements when booking.

  1. Venetian BlindsGeorge Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Red Dot”)I love Italian cuisine and there was a place in Richmond I was quite keen to visit. Al Boccon Di'Vino opened by Riccardo Grigolo originally from Venice. His place a small, cozy, with great atmosphere Venetian place. The decor based on Modigliani replicas, wine boxes, David, and the Leaning Tower will make you feel like you're in a countryside Italian homemade food restaurant. No menu policy, so you will eat what Riccardo prepared for that day, basically they come with the pan in hand and serve your food into your plate. Also no wine list, if you want wine you will get the house wine, which was quite nice by the way.ParmigianaWe sat around 7ish and didn’t end until 11. A real Italian feast serving 11 small dishes. During our visit we got Parma ham with melon, a tomato bruschetta, peppers and grilled aubergine, aubergine parmigiana with meatballs, beef carpaccio, an amazing scallops on the shell and shrimp (the shrimp sauce was outstanding), two plates of pasta including penne arrabbiata with great heat, and a ravioli with goat cheese and a touch of mint and chocolate, then a hog that was divided and shared with every table, and at the end some chocolates and panna cotta. Just before leaving they offered an espresso and limoncello to end our fantastic evening. Pasta TimeSharp flavours and aggressive seasoning I just love it. One of the best Italian restaurants in town. Just be aware that it takes 4 hours to get through the dinner, also the pace is not the best one, but in my opinion is worth the hassle, just relax and enjoy the food.Al Boccon Di'VinoT: 020 8940 9060Italian CuisineApprox Damage: £60ppArea: RichmondBorough: Richmond Upon ThamesTwitter: alboccondivino

    Brunch etc. :: A family celebration at Al Boccon di

    A few weeks ago my family got together at Al Boccon di'vino in Richmond to celebrate my step-grandmother's 80th birthday. A cosy, traditionally-decorated Italian bistro, Al Boccon di'vino is well-known for its decadent multi-course Venetian feasts, and our 20-strong party spent the best part of an afternoon gorging on a never-ending stream of delicious Italian dishes...
