Experience a slice of La Dolce Vita in the heart of Soho with the opening of Bocconcino Soho on Thursday 21st September. The renowned Italian restaurant from Mayfair – famed for its authentic Italian cuisine, wood-fired pizzas and handmade pasta – will open its second restaurant on 59 Great Marlborough Street. Prepare for refined Italian dining with a contemporary flair.
Open seven days a week for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, expect a luxurious dining experience full of Italian soul, including new aperitivo dishes and a first for Bocconcino, cicchetti (Venetian-inspired small dishes specially designed for sharing) with mini versions of its popular handmade pasta and antipasti, served alongside signature wood-fired pizzas, fresh seafood and meats. The menu, created by Head Chef Simone Serafini – previously of Cecconi’s and private members’ club 5 Hertford Street – will take diners on a culinary journey across Italy with dishes playing homage to the country’s myriad of regions.
Feast on Bocconcino favourites such as Tagliatelle with Black Truffle or Tagliatelle with Pistachio Pesto and Sicilian Red Prawns (available in full or cicchetti servings) as well as the popular Pizza Diavola, made fresh by pizzaiolos using traditional Roman dough. Chef Simone will also introduce a Tasting Menu, inspired by his upbringing in Florence and Turin.
There will be an extensive selection of cocktails featuring both classic and contemporary creations, plus a generous wine list (specialising in Italian wines but also featuring well-known brands from across the globe) as well as small, artisan producers from across Italy.
The elegant interiors, spread across two floors, are a modern interpretation of an Italian trattoria. The picture-perfect dining area houses an open kitchen and marble counter seating, providing diners with front-row seats to the chefs meticulously crafting each dish. Downstairs, there will be a cosy yet classy subterranean speakeasy bar (opening in October), bringing a touch of glamour and opulence below the vibrant streets of Soho.
Private dining for group celebrations will be available, plus a rotating line-up of resident DJs to entertain until late, from Thursday – Saturday.
