La dolce vita

Where London - - Dining -

Ev­ery­body’s talk­ing about Berke­ley Street, one of Lon­don’s hottest din­ing ar­eas and home to Boc­con­cino (p. 67), a stylish Ital­ian res­tau­rant from Rus­sian res­tau­ra­teur Mikhail Gokhner. Sleek yet homely and spa­cious, Boc­con­cino ex­cels in Ital­ian cui­sine: top-qual­ity in­gre­di­ents, hon­est cook­ing, first-class ser­vice and ex­cep­tional Ital­ian wine. Home­made pasta and wood-fired piz­zas fea­ture strongly, with clas­sic dishes, such as lin­guine with cut­tle­fish and squid ink, as well as seafood and meat cooked over an open fire. Head here for a taste of Italy that is au­then­tic and com­fort­ing.
