This month celebrates five years since Bocconcino, the contemporary Italian dining venue opened its doors in the heart of Mayfair, before expanding its portfolio with the infamous upscale and must-visit eatery on Berkeley Street.
Known for its calligraphy etched-glass entrance that entices guests into the dining destination, the bespoke two floor venue keeps them there wanting more through its delectable selection of modern fused dishes and delightful hospitality. Plus, their extensive list of only the finest Italian wines is another bonus point to their ever-growing list of benefits.
The venue is centered around a grand olive tree which
transports guests to the familiar sights of Italy and offers them the chance to
relax in luxury on the grand top floor or dine in style with the bottom boasting
views of their open-plan kitchen and impressive fresh fish display. Undergone
extensive renovations this year, the restaurant has really put their renowned
attention to detail into everything – from metal finished Italian marble
flooring, to antiqued mirrors contrasting against the exposed brickwork. Bocconcino’s
is as glamourous as it is delicious.
Attending the venue earlier this year, we dined on asparagus, truffle and egg white and scallops with cauliflower puree. Spring green risotto and a selection of freshly baked bread and oils were offered in plenty and truly encompassed their ethos. The restaurant continues to offer its exceptional Italian dining to the streets of London, crediting its success by following the best culinary practices of its homeland. You can see they take great care in using only the finest of ingredients and their traditionally trained chefs are second to none.
Raising a glass of their finest red, poured by their in-house sommelier we raise a glass to five wonderful years of exceptional food and first-class service here at Bocconciono, from everyone at H+N and wish them another five years more!
