A short stroll from Charing Cross station, Bancone is an Italian restaurant on the fringes of Covent Garden. Pasta specialists by trade, the menu at Bancone is stuffed full of delicious dishes, such as pappardelle with slow-cooked kid goat and rosemary ragù, lamb neck ravioli with spring vegetables and tagliolini, clams, seaweed and purslane. The kitchen, headed up by Locanda Locatelli alum Louis Korovilas, will also serve up a range of smaller plates, with a daily selection of seasonal arancini, and there will be a bar dedicated to aperitivos and accompanying cicchetti.  

Bancone is a joint venture from restaurateurs William Ellner and David Ramsey. For Ellner, a long-time operator whose family have been running Joanna's in Crystal Palace for 40 years now, this will be his first ever Central London restaurant.
