SquareMeal 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.

Ms/Mrs. Joanna B

18 February 2013  
We were dragged in by an over-zealous waiter while just reading the menu outside, an off-putting start. But with not long before our concert at the Barbican to get a meal in we didn't have much choice. The caprese starter for £10.95 was 3 slices of (admittedly) buffalo mozarella, 3 slices of anaemic tomato and one tiny basil leave in the middle. I had veal for main… in a mushroom sauce and brandy sauce. The sauce felt like it came from a packet. I cannot really recommend this restaurant. It had an old fashioned feel… candles dripping over chianti bottles…, if the food had been cheap and good then there would have been a place for the retro atmosphere… the food was just too over-priced for what it was. Cannot really recommend.
