Bocconcino

Restaurants, Italian Mayfair

Time Out says

This Italian restaurant in Mayfair comes from Russian restaurateur Mikhail Gokhner. It specialises in authentic wood-fired pizzas, with options ranging from a margherita and a Napoletana to a quattro formaggi, a diavola, a calzone con prosciutto and a pizza bocconcino - topped with the mozzarella balls from which the venue takes its name. 

It's not all about the pizzas, though. Antipasti such as raw Sicilian red prawns and boards of cured Tuscan meats lead into wild boar ragu tagliatelle, black ink fish ravioli and orecchiette with aubergine, tomatoes and salted ricotta. Much of the seafood and meat is cooked over an open fire.

Wines play an important part on the drinks list, with bottles from well-known winemakers in Italy's big-hitting regions alongside those from small, artisan producers. Cocktails include bellinis, negronis and Aperol spritzes.

I went there last Saturday evening for dinner and we had an amazing evening. The waiters are Italian and the service was great. The venue itself is beautiful and not too big which makes it very cosy. I was dying for something with truffle so I got the truffle tagliatelle which were delicious. I love burrata therefore I got the burratina for starter which was extra creamy. A little disappointed with the pudding which was a millefoglio, the presentation was great but I was expecting something a little more pastry like the French millefeuille. Prices are quite high but then again you are in Mayfair. 


I had a fabulous dinner on a random Tuesday evening, not planned. My friends and I walked passed and received a warm welcome when we asked for a table 'al fresco'. The wine list is vast and somehow unusual, we had some delicious italian wine recommended by the sommelier, which accompanied our meal beautifully. I will definitely go again with my husband, as it is also a great place for romantic dinners. The crowed was quite eclectic, with a mix of young couples, families, suits and even toddlers. I recommend the truffle tagliatelle and the bocconcino pizza (which we had to share as a starter). The chocolate fondant is to die for! Lovely unpretentious gem in Mayfair, and affordable compared to their neighbours.
