La Goccia Covent Garden

La Goccia

A vibrant Italian restaurant in Covent Garden 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.

We proudly follow a slow food ethos, taking pleasure from food but with a commitment to the community and the environment. That means we source the best quality ingredients working closely with small and independent producers, including our own family farm – Haye Farm, a 66-acre mixed organic farm set in the breath-taking rolling hills of East Devon since 2014.
