Appealingly kitted out in the style of a post-industrial canteen, Rocco hopes to make a success of a substantial site that has played host to some notable eateries, most recently Langan’s Le Coq d’Or. All the ingredients for success are here. Sit at a butch zinc bar for cocktails that include all the Italian classics, such as the negroni, Aperol spritz, or Americano, before taking a table in the large, wood-furnished main room or the airy covered terrace. Backed by a good range of vino at simpatico prices, the food is largely based on organic, artisan produce, with menus offering chickpea soup, aubergine timbale with Parma ham, gnocchi with Gorgonzola and walnuts, entrecôtes and escalopes, plus the likes of osso bucco in the evening. A ‘salumeria’ (Italian deli) encourages passing trade to shop and linger over coffee or sociable evening drinks.
