La Goccia

La Goccia is a vibrant restaurant with an open kitchen, wood fired oven, large grill and dining bar. Dishes are prepared by chefs in front of guests adding an element of drama and theatre to the ambience. La Goccia offers Petersham Nurseries’ interpretation of the Italian aperitivo and small plates known as ‘cicchetti’. The emphasis on seasonality is key to the extensive menu that changes regularly with the best seasonal produce.

La Goccia’s winter menus combine the very best British and Italian Christmas traditions. Diners begin with an aperitivo in the bar, and can take their pick from starters made with carefully-sourced produce such as Haye Farm beef tartare with salsa verde and toasted sourdough, or pumpkin ravioli with butter and sage. For mains, there are seasonal Italian dishes for frosty days, such as ossobuco di vitello with bone marrow risotto, or monkfish with clams, mussels and leeks.

To finish, it just wouldn’t be Christmas without a thick slice of panettone with marsala zabaione, or dark chocolate mousse with oranges grown in Sicily.
