Square Meal Review of Il Boteglio Restaurant ?

A Smithfield institution for more than 30 years, blue-fronted Il Boteglio is a trattoria of the old school, right down to its old wine barrels, potted palms and candles dripping in Chianti bottles – although prices are not exactly ‘retro’. The menu trawls its way through familiar antipasti, salads, 10 sorts of pizza, assorted pasta dishes (fettuccine with meatballs, four-cheese ravioli, and so on) and well-tried mains ranging from lobster and pumpkin risotto with saffron, or tuna steak with deep-fried zucchini to calf’s liver with butter and sage or veal chop with rosemary on a bed of spaghettini. Set menus offer decent value for hard-pressed bankers, and the food is matched by a traditional list of everyday Italian wines.

  1. If you walk around Smithfield market, it is surrounded by Italian restaurants: Amico Bio, Apulia, Il Botteglio, Polpo, Attilio's… As I live around here, I have tried most of them. The only one I haven't been yet is Amico Bio (vegetarian restaurant)but it is my next project. Apulia is by far my favourite (previous review HERE), it is my plan B when I have nothing in the fridge or when I am too lazy to cook. They have nice fresh products, the food is fantastic and pizzas are very good. Waiters and waitresses are always nice and welcoming. It always feels like being at home when I dine there...
