It's official: Bocconcino has brought the Italian spirit to London. The restaurant's concept was born back in 2006, nestled within Forte dei Marmi and now, with a passion for authentic Italian flavours the team have brought a slice of Tuscany's magic to Mayfair. The result is a sprawling, two-floor restaurant with sumptuous interiors and bags of atmosphere; the perfect place for a party or event.
The ground floor embraces the traditions and classic flavours across the Italian regions. Inspired by age-old trattorias, this space feels cosy and romantic, with the option to take over the entire space for between 40 and 60 people. The lower-ground floor has more of a party vibe, with atmospheric live music and a larger, open-plan space. Here, you're welcome to enjoy complete exclusivity for between 25 and 40 guests, or there's a semi-private space suitable for between 12 and 24.
In terms of the menu, the team have created a selection of different options depending on the day of your booking and the size of your party. So, before you get too invested in one particular food offering, we would advise checking out the menu section and giving the team a call to discuss.
However, for a flavour of what's on offer, larger parties are often invited to try the four-course sharing menu which includes anti pasti for the table such as beef fillet tartare with homemade
potato crisps and black truffle shavings, as well as crab salad with radish, celery and anchovy dressing.
For mains, pizzas such as the mozzarella with black truffle shavings and truffle oil sound delicious, as does the secondi selection which is also to share. Here, you'll find seafood risotto and roasted octopus with pea puree, alongside desserts like tiramisu and passionfruit cheesecake.
