Bocconcino is a beautiful Italian restaurant based in the heart of Mayfair. Through a small door at number 19 Berkeley Street lies a gorgeous two floor modern restaurant with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
The menu is based on simple but exquisite Italian classics. There are plenty of choices for antipasti, primi and secondi, with a decent range of fish and meat. They have the “catch of the day” available which you can view in advance. Bocconcino also offers a number of exotic pizzas.
To start we had the scallops and selection of Tuscan meats with bread:
Following this we had the spaghetti with clams (vongole) and the tagliatelle with wild boar ragu. Both were flavoursome and filling (no scrimping on portions here).
Lastly, we just about managed to squeeze in a lemon, mango and apple sorbet, which was delightful and tangy.
Good selection of wines and cocktails, including the Il Bocconcino, which is vodka, limoncello, prosecco and lemon – just wonderful! The attentive service and lovely food really made the evening – highly recommend for a date night!
