What they say:

Specialising in authentic Italian cuisine, Bancone is ready to serve up some 'crowd-pleasers' to the masses in the form of some very fine pasta dishes. Having recruited Locanda Locatelli alum Louis Korovilas to head up the kitchen, this lovely restaurant on the fringes of Covent Garden promises an eclectic range of pasta dishes and daily-changing seasonal arancini, as well as a bar serving aperitivo and ciccheti.

What we say:

The latest addition to Covent Garden's ever-expaning restaurant collective, Bancone plays into the public's growing taste for exciting, high-quality pasta dishes. From their pappardelle with slow-cooked kid goat and rosemary ragù to the enticing lamb neck ravioli, this cool new eatery from the man behind one of Crystal Palace's longest standing restaurants is sure to be a hit with pasta-lovers across the city.
