FOOD & WINE

THE MENU: A PHRASEBOOK IN MINIATURE, CONTAINING A TASTE OF THE TWENTY MAIN DIALECTS OF ITALIAN CUISINE

 

Our menus are changed every day - twice a day - as we try to keep up with the changing seasons.

 

Many of the recipes feature in the BOCCA cookbook.  

 

Winner of "BEST WINE LIST" - Tatler Restaurant Awards 2013

 

"IF I'M SOUNDING EXCITED BY THE FOOD, YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN...THE WINE LIST" - Richard Vines - BLOOMBERG

 

Our wines all say 'Salute!' - 'To your health!' - and are sourced with a great deal of care and attention. As with the food, we seek out familiar favourites and obscure gems. All our wines are Italian, and we consider each to be a prime example of its type, and each to offer great value for its price. The list is not exactly short, but Italy is home to over 500 varieties of grape. 

 

We update the menu below once a week, as a guide to our seasonal produce, and apologise for any discrepancies when you visit.

Our new restaurant serving Italian street food will open in August 2015, for details and announcements visit www.eatvico.com
