Bocconcino opened in the heart of Mayfair in 2014 and has since become renowned for serving both classic and modern Italian dishes from Executive Chef Marco Corsica. The Berkeley Street eatery from restaurateur Mikhail Gokhner follows the best culinary principles of Italy, focusing quality ingredients and traditional cooking methods. Alongside the excellent food, guests to Bocconcino experience first class service, a luxurious setting, welcoming atmosphere, and a selection of the finest wines from Italy and around the world.
For chef Marco Corsica (previous of Daphne’s, Cecconi’s, Sartoria and Luciano), ingredients are key to recreating the authentic flavours of his homeland, and the produce will always be the star of a dish at Bocconcino. Having grown up in a family of great cooks and trained as a chef in Naples, Marco expertly balances his respect for classic Italian flavours with a touch of contemporary flair.
From the menu, a tempting array of antipasti is followed by primi including Linguine with Scottish lobster and cherry tomatoes and Tagliatelle with wild boar ragu. Meanwhile, a team of talented pizzaiolos prepare Pizza Napoletana, Pizza Diavola and the signature Pizza Bocconcino in the traditional wood-fired oven. For secondi, Marco’s open firing cooking adds a beautiful flavour to a selection of steaks, whilst guests can also enjoy seafood dishes such as Roasted octopus with caponata and Sardinian seafood fregola. To complete the ultimate Italian feast at Bocconcino, guests can indulge in traditional desserts including Tiramisu and Semifreddo alla nocciola.
With authentic Italian food, an extensive wine list, welcoming and stylish design, and outstanding service, Bocconcino offers an exceptional Italian dining experience in the heart of Mayfair.
