Bancone Covent GardenDescribed by Grace Dent as casually orgasmic and deeply affordable, Bancone has been making waves on the dining scene ever since it opened in Covent Garden back in 2018, and a placement on Michelin's 2020 Bib Gourmand list will no doubt increase its popularity further still. A neighbourhood Italian in the heart of London, the restaurant comes from former Pied á Terre and Locanda Locatelli chef Louis Korovilas and serves unfussy, comforting pasta dishes in a stripped back yet welcoming setting. Bowls of freshly made fazzoletti - or silk handkerchiefs, as they're known on the menu - and spicy pork ragu are served to diners perched at one of three dining bars looking on to the fully open kitchen. Cosy two-person booths placed under exposed golden bulbs are also available, providing the perfect setting for a feast of honeyed garlic focaccia followed by pappardelle with sautéed chicken livers, brandy and sage butter. For dessert, tuck into peanut butter pannacotta with cherry gel or gianduja chocolate brulée.
