Restaurateur Michael Gokhner opened new Italian restaurant Bocconcino Pizzeria in London’s Mayfair on 1 December. 

The restaurant is located on Berkeley Street and ranges over two floors with a total of 127 covers, seating 74 in the basement downstairs and 53 in the restaurant upstairs. It is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

Bocconcino Pizzeria serves a menu of ‘Italian comfort food’ including wood-fired pizzas, fresh pasta dishes and oven-baked meat and fish.

Downstairs the restaurant has an open kitchen so customers can watch chefs kneading and tossing pizza dough. The interior also features a ‘sweeping’ iron staircase, alcove seating and exposed brickwork, and is decorated in shades of cream and light browns.

The menu

Bocconcino Pizzeria has a focus on pizzas cooked in its wood-fired oven, but serves a range of Italian dishes.

Starters on the menu include salmon tartare with anchovies, capers and quail egg, and Tuscany-style fish stew. Mains on the menu include dishes such as wild boar ragu tagliatelle, black ink spaghetti with calamari and bottarga, and salt-baked sea bream with new potatoes.

Its pizza menu includes the signature pizza Bocconcino, topped with stracchino, mozzarella, fresh tomatoes and Parma ham, the pizza gorgonzola e pere, topped with pear and gorgonzola, and the calzone quattro formaggi e prosciutto, which contains tomato sauce, mozzarella, stracchino, pecorino, scamorza, and ham.

Bocconcino Pizzeria also serves a dessert pizza and classic Italian sweets such as panna cotta and tiramisu.

The restaurant’s wine list concentrates on Italian wines, serving a mixture of well-known brands and bottles from ‘small, artisan’ producers. It also has a cocktail list which ‘celebrates Italian classics’ such as the Bellini, the Negroni and the Aperol Spritz.
