IN LAZIO

3 COURSE LAZIO FEASTS FOR 2

NEGRONI

GRAPPARITA (serves 2)

There is a wonderful harmony between aromatic grappa and fine tequila. Here we have made a mock-margarita using a fine Muscat grape grappa, Ocho Blanco tequila, and lemon (fresh juice, and limoncello). You can salt the rim, or not, as you prefer. We serve this on the rocks – but if you prefer your margarita up you can serve it in chilled martini glasses.

  1. Thoroughly pre-chill the bottle of Grapparita (in fact, because it is made with fresh lemon keep it chilled from receipt until consumption, and drink it within 5 days)
  2. If serving neat, pre-chill 2 martini glasses (we prefer it on the rocks)
  3. If you want a salty rim on your chilled martini glasses, or on tumblers, rub half the rim gently with the cut surface of a lemon and coat it in just a little salt.
  4. Pour the chilled Grapparita into the pre-chilled glasses, or over ice cubes in a tumbler
  5. Garnish with a slice of lemon
£12.00
BERTO ROSSO 50:50 (serves 2)

A red Martini! The 50:50 (very wet) Martini is an exaltation of vermouth – and here we are celebrating Berto’s faultless vermouth rosso. Blended with Stolichnaya Vodka and already stirred over ice, this is pour-and-go. Just pre-chill the bottle of berto rosso martini 50:50, and martini glasses (though you can also serve it on the rocks).

  1. Pre-chill 2 martini glasses (unless you want to serve it on the rocks), and chill thoroughly the bottle of Berto rosso martini 50:50
  2. Pour into the chilled martini glasses, or if you prefer into tumblers over ice
  3. Garnish with a twist of lemon
£12.00
DACAPIRAC (serves 2)

Our take on a Sazerac, this is Bulleit Rye blended with Amaro Del Capo, a Calabrese amaro whose delicious blend of botanicals echoes the bitters in a Sazerac, and liquorice that plays the role of Absinthe. We have already stirred this over ice, so all you need to do is pre-chill it, and serve it either in a rocks or martini glass neat (ideally, pre-chill the glass), or on the rocks, in either case with a twist of lemon.

  1. Pre-chill the bottle of Dacapirac thoroughly
  2. If serving neat, pre-chill 2 tumblers or martini glasses
  3. Pour the chilled Dacapirac into the pre-chilled glasses, or over ice cubes in a tumbler if you prefer
  4. Garnish with a twist of lemon – for this cocktail it is best to cut a broad, thickish sheet of lemon zest (with a potato peeler or sharp paring knife), and squeeze it generously over the cocktail to release the oils from the skin.
£13.60
ESPRESSO MARTINI (serves 2)

Golly this is delicious! – We have always rounded out our espresso martini with a little Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur), and make it with artisanal Colombian coffee beans. You will need a blender.

  1. Thoroughly pre-chill 2 martini glasses, and the bottle of espresso martini
  2. Put the chilled espresso martini in a blender along with 50g deep-frozen ice cubes
  3. Blend for a full 2 minutes, until very creamy-frothy, and all the ice is long gone
  4. Pour into the chilled martini glasses, and leave it a minute to settle, as Guinness would

SPUMANTI - SPARKLING WINES

PROSECCO SUPERIORE

Region: VENETO
Grape: GLERA
Vintage: NV
Main characteristics: DRY, ORCHARD FRUITS

Dry and surprisingly textured for Prosecco, this is a cut above. Persistently fizzy with classic pear notes and just a hint of bread. Can be mixed for a Bellini or Spritz of course, but we prefer to let it shine unescorted.

 

 

£15.90
FRANCIACORTA BRUT ROSÉ

Region: LOMBARDY

Grape: PINOT NOIR

£15.05

BIANCHI - WHITES

TREBBIANO D'ABRUZZO

Region: ABRUZZO 

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: TREBBIANO

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: SAVOURY & GREEN

 

Selected vineyards are hand picked to make this deliciously savoury drop from the rolling hills of Abruzzo. Green and mineral, this would be smashing with asparagus, fennel, and green salads. Cracking value too!
£12.20
VERDICCHIO CLASSICO

Region: MARCHE

Grape: VERDICCHIO

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristics: DRY, CLEAN & MINERAL

Fresh, zingy, mineral Verdicchio. Green apple and a touch of elderflower on the nose, this is a seriously good dry as a bone white from a master.

£17.45
PINOT GRIGIO

Region: FRIULI

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: PINOT GRIGIO

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: FRESH AND PEACHY

A great summer wine, full of zest and zing. This is a Pinot Grigio to give the grape a good name! Lime and blossom on the nose, mingling with white peach and apricots. Just the right side side of mouthwatering to make this the perfect partner to all things green. Or a partner to another glass of the same...

£18.25
SAUVIGNON BLANC

Region: TRENTINO-ALTO ADIGE

Style: DRY WHITE

Grape: SAUVIGNON BLANC

Vintage: 2018

A stunning Sauvignon from the far northern mountains of Italy. Bursting with gooseberry and verdant freshness, but with enough weight and rock-licking minerality to help it along nicely. Intense and mouth-watering, this is very much a food wine, crying out for seafood or fresh cheeses. 

£29.25
ETNA BIANCO 'A PUDDARA'

Region: SICILY

Style: COMPLEX WHITE

Grape: CARRICANTE

Vintage: 2017

Main characteristic: MINERAL & SAPID

A powerful, complex wine with a fine mineral backbone. The nose is rather heady, with preserved lemon and mountain herbs, leading to depth on the palate and a deliciously marine finish. A beautiful wine which we have the pleasure of returning to every year.

£39.20

ROSÉ

CALAFURIA
Region: PUGLIA
Style: PALE ROSE
Grape: NEGROAMARO
Vintage: 2019
Main characteristic: FRESH & FRUITY

Tormaresca, the famed Antinori's Puglian outpost puts this wine together rather excellently every year. The locals drink it by the bucketload, and it really suits Puglia. Strawberry nose, a tingle of acidity, and a pleasingly dry finish makes for a savoury, versatile pink which loves seafood and spice. 
£18.25
ETNA ROSATO

Region: SICILY

Style: PALE ROSATO

Grape: NERELLO MASCALESE

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: DRY & MINERAL

From a single vineyard of old bush vines on Mt. Etna's prized northern slope, this rosé delivers fruit and minerality, giving a sense of the volcanic soil with a pleasing dance on the tongue.

£20.55
NEVILL HOLT - ETNA ROSATO

Region: SICILY

Style: PALE ROSATO

Grape: NERELLO MASCALESE

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: DRY & MINERAL

From a single vineyard of old bush vines on Mt. Etna's prized northern slope, this rosé delivers fruit and minerality, giving a sense of the volcanic soil with a pleasing dance on the tongue.

£20.55

ORANGE

SOAVE 'BUCCIATO' (ORANGE)

Region: VENETO

Grape: GARGANEGA

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: TEXTURED & INTRIGUING

A wine of character and tradition. Later harvest than most in this category, with just 30 hours of skin contact. This is a great way to experience an orange wine which is not all about the method, the wine behind it all is rather good too. An intriguing nose of beeswax, mandarin, fresh rosemary and preserved lemon, with a clean dry mineral finish.

£27.60

ROSSI - RED WINES

PRIMITIVO

Region: PUGLIA

Grape: PRIMITIVO

Vintage: 2018

Main characteristics: JUICY, DARK & DELICIOUS

A veluptuous, tasty Primitivo; deep and full of plum and black cherry. The Puglian sun gives us ripe sweet fruit and makes this seriously gluggable!

£12.85
VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO

Region: VENETO

Style: MEDUIM BODIED RED

GRAPE: CORVINA & RONDINELLA

Vintage: 2019

Main characteristic: BRIGHT & JUICY

Refreshing & vibrant, this is a really lovely example of it's type, with life bursting out of the glass. More foody than some, with a touch of maraschino cherries and herbs. 

£14.60
ADONE ROSSO
Region: TUSCANY
Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED
Grape: SANGIOVESE / MERLOT
Vintage: 2019
Main characteristic: SOFT AND FRUITY
A gluggable, juicy baby from one of our favourite Brunello producers in Montalcino, Tuscany. Sangiovese and Merlot combine to give sweet red fruit with classic Sangiovese lift and tannins.
Great with meat, but also really good with a simple pasta with tomato sauce.
£16.95
NERO D'AVOLA

Region: SICILY

Style: SOFT RED

Grape: NERO D'AVOLA,  NERELLO MASCALESE & NOCERA

Vintage: 2015

Main characteristic: DEEP & SUPPLE

A deep, characterful red from FARO, in the extreme north east of Sicily, overlooking the Messina Strait. Winds whip around this headland where the Mistral & Scirocco meet, hence the name, TERRA DI VENTO, land of wind. The vines here are sturdy, as are the wines. Deep and rich, but soft and juicy. Very easy to enjoy, particularly with a meaty pasta or plate of cheese. 

£21.65
BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

Region: TUSCANY

Style: FULL BODIED RED

Grape: SANGIOVESE

Vintage: 2014

Main characteristic: SOFT CHERRY & LENGTH

A rather lovely Brunello from an early drinking vintage. 2014 Brunello is spot-on, with the right amount of sweet fruit to flesh the wine out and carry those lovely leathery tannins. We first tasted from this house 2 years ago and love what they do! Just the right combination of power and refinement; not too heavy, but tasty enough to do it's job very well. 
£38.70
BARBARESCO 2016

Region: PIEDMONT

Style: MEDIUM BODIED RED

Grape: NEBBIOLO

Vintage: 2016

Main characteristic: PRETTY & INVITING

Barbaresco is Barolo's prettier sister, and this is a benchmark example from the world's finest co-operative. The cracking 2016 vintage has produced a wine of sheer class and refinement, giving rose petal and raspberry with just a touch of licorice and mint. Everything has aligned to produce a Nebbiolo lover's dream. Buy a truck load!

£42.85

VINI DOLCI - DESSERT WINES

CONDIMENTS

LA PERLA MOZZARELLA

£16.50
caviar-cheese

50g of Russian Oscietra caviar paired with Stracchino and crisp pane carasau. An ideal pre-dinner nibble, or a very luxurious breakfast.

Directions:

  • Eat the soft cheese and cold caviar on the crispy bread, either together or alternating.
  • For extra deliciousness warm the crisp read (toaster for a few seconds, over a naked flame or in the oven), and drizzle with a little good olive oil.

 

£69.00
OLIVES

Wild green and black olives from the hillsides of Calabria. Marinated with fennel seeds, bay leaves and chilli. Olives as they were, and should forever be. 330g

 

 

 

 

£5.20
PARMESAN 36M

36 month aged parmesan from Emilia Romagna. A multitude of uses. Price per 200G

 

 

 

 

£5.20
MOTHER OF PEARL CAVIAR SPOON
This mother of pearl spoon is a beautiful utensil for serving and eating caviar with. This is one of the best ways to serve caviar to ensure that you get the full caviar experience.
£8.95
BOTTARGA

It pays to have one luxury ingredient on hand, for moments when you feel low, or when an unexpected guest passes by. Stefano Vallebona earned his stripes selling Bottarga, and he still has the monopoly on both quality and value in his product. Slice it over avocado salad, serve it with garlic and oil, or grate it then melt it with oil, butter and lemon to make the mother of all pasta sauces. 100g

 

 

 

£19.50
PANE CARASAU
The Sardinian paper-bread; thin and crisp wafers excellent for cheese and nibbles. Santa Margherita, Sardinia
£3.50
TARALLI
Salty little biscuits, perfect to nibble on whilst you sip a negroni. Puglia, Italy
£2.95
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL LA BANDIERA 500ml

***NEW SEASON OIL***

Bolgheri is renowned as the terroir of (some of) the world's best wines, and (all of) the world's best olive oil. Jacqui at La Bandiera owns one of the best plots, and makes an unsurpassable blend of moraiolo, leccino and frantoio that is typical of Bolgheri – full-bodied with fruity and spicy notes and green aromas.  

At Bocca di Lupo it is the oil that graces our salads, anoints our fish, and sits on the table inviting the bread to jump in for a good dunking.

£15.00
BALSAMIC VINEGAR 100ml
Balsamic reductions have become very fashionable in recent years, but they are often too sweet and sticky, made by rapidly boiling the balsamic down to a thick glaze. The Vecchia Dispensa 'Ricco' is no such thing, however. Made from an eight year vinegar naturally thickened within Slovenian oak barrels in the family's attics over the hot summer months, it is useful for dripping over a finished meal to add little bursts of flavour.
£11.95
WHITE TRUFFLE OIL

A little goes a long way with truffle and this one is fantastic. So go ahead and put a little in whatever you fancy. 175ml

 

 

 

£8.50
BLACK TRUFFLE OIL
Earthy and aromatic, this excellent black truffle oil is ideal for a range of uses.
£9.50
TRUFFLE CARPACCIO

Often such preserved truffle products are a horrible waste of such a precious thing, not so here. These are thin disks of preserved black truffle, ideal for a multitude of uses. 80g

 

 


£16.00
SENAPE
Raw ground mustard. Goes well with beef or pork dishes, burgers, roasted or boiled meats, ham, broken hearts & burns. Dario Cecchini, Panzano, Tuscany.
£9.95
MOSTARDA MEDITERRANEA
Made with a base of red peppers and hot chillies, this excellent condiment is delicious with pork, roasts, boiled beef or cheese. Dario Cecchini, Panzano, Tuscany.
£9.95
FIORE DI FINOCCHIO
Wild Tuscan fennel pollen - an extraordinarily precious wild herb. Perfect with pork. Dario Cecchini, Panzano, Tuscany.
£6.95
CAPERS IN SALT 200G

Capers packed in salt are incredibly salty. Once soaked until tolerably saline, they are infinitely superior to their pickled twins. On the matter of superior capers, these are grown on the black sands of Pantelleria, a low island between Sicily and Africa, so windswept only Muscat grapes and caper bushes grow there. By clinging low to the sand, they are the epitome, fat, juicy and flavoursome.

Soak them before using. I use them copiously, in salads, braised in stews, in pastas, or even fried crispy in butter as a bar snack. 200g

 

£3.00
GIANDUJOTTI 250G
Choco-hazelnut treats from an outstanding chocolatier, Guido Gobino in Turin
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
£19.95
‘OPTIMISM’ CHOCOLATE

This chocolate was made for you by Sabadi, the leading producer of Modica chocolate, where the cacao is still ground at low temperature in granite mills and not conched, leading to the same granular texture the Aztecs enjoyed in their rites.

Optimism – with pumpkin seeds, Ginseng Panax and nutmeg.

£4.50
AMALFI LEMONS
The Amalfi lemon is widely regarded by cooks as the prince among lemons, rivalled only by its Sicilian brethren. Grown on the hills of Campania in Italy - in particular around Sorrento and Amalfi - it is at its best in the summer months. Unwaxed and sold singly
£1.25
VIALONE RICE

Tiny round grained risotto rice - our favourite type. Piedmont, Italy

£2.45
TRUFFLE SLICER

BOCCA - COOKBOOK

Italy is a land of appetite, where life is embraced with passion, and food prepared with generosity and joy. But the cuisine is hard to define, as each region has its own rich culinary traditions - and so deep is the belief of locals that their food is the best, that often Italy's finest dishes are unknown from one place to the next.

Jacob Kenedy, a self-avowed culinary magpie, travelled the length and breadth of the country over the course of a year, gathering up his favourite recipes - many of them obscure, some bizarre, all utterly delicious. Like the menu at Bocca di Lupo, Jacob's award-winning London restaurant, this book is a thrilling, exotic journey through the true flavours of Italy: the hearty risotti of the north, the exquisite shellfish of the Veneto, the earthy sausages of Bologna, the fried street food of Rome, the baroque desserts of Naples and the Arab-influenced sweets of Sicily.

The recipes in Bocca are a revelation, a portal to a side of Italy that is gritty, glamorous, seedy and mysterious. Be warned, this is a cookbook with teeth.

The first two paragraph from the book. 

"I don’t eat food, I devour it. The act of consumption, of making something wonderful a part of me, goes rather to my head. In a fleeting moment, I taste that most precious ingredient, the love a great cook has poured so freely into the pot. It is all too easy to forget where the food came from, and the reason it is delicious.

I think there is something particularly alluring about Italian food – don’t you?
It has special qualities that permeate not only every dish worth eating there, but every aspect of the culture. In Italy, my spirits lift. The architecture seems to enhance nature in the countryside, and to exalt mankind in the cities. Human beauty shines in paintings and sculptures, in the smiles people give to children, in the directness with which they talk, in the food they prepare and eat with such passion and understanding. I am freed from any sense of the guilt or malaise that seem so common in the modern age. It is this freedom, this happiness, which makes Italian food so uniquely delicious and nourishing."
