SquareMeal Review of Bocconi

Bocconi is a charming Italian restaurant, offering a traditional taste of everyone's favourite cuisine on London's Goldhawk Road. Family meals, children's birthdays, overdue catch ups with friends and after work dinners; all are perfectly suited to this crowd-pleasing restaurant which prides itself on delivering the best of Italian flavours. 

Inside, expect a spacious, light-filled dining room, complemented by pistachio-green wall panelling and bistro seating, smartly upholstered in rich-green fabric. The front window and characterful corners of the space are decorated with hanging herbs and spices, as well as stylishly-placed kitchenware for an authentic feel. 

On the menu, diners are treated to a true Italian experience starting off with antipasti such as bruschetta with tomato and pesto, alongside parma ham, melon and rocket salad, and universal crowd-pleaser, aubergine parmigiana. If enjoying a pasta or salad course, the goats cheese, beetroot, walnut and pear salad sounds delicious, but we'd be even more tempted by the lobster ravioli in bisque sauce. Also, good news: gluten free options are available, so there really is no reason not to tuck into a steaming bowl of pasta!

For mains, there's a rounded selection of meat and fish-based plates, with dishes like the slow roast pork belly with apricot, spinach, potatos and gravy, as well as the calf's liver with green beans, parsley, mash potato and gravy, really standing out. If you fancy adding sides, there's options like green beans, fat chips and mash potato to enjoy.

Of course, it wouldn't be an Italian meal if desserts weren't on the agenda and Bocconi really comes through on that front. Pick between homemade tiramisu, lemon, almond and mascarpone cheesecake with raspberry sorbet, or legendary Affogato with two scoops of vanilla ice cream. 

If you fall in love with Bocconi and are hoping to use it for your next birthday or special occasion, the team welcome private dining bookings, so simply get in touch to start planning.
