Petersham Nurseries interpretation of Italian ‘cichetti’ is showcased within La Goccia, a vibrant and accessible restaurant offering an extensive menu of small sharing plates. The emphasis on seasonality is key to the lunch and dinner menu that changes regularly. An open grill and a wood burning oven adds an element of drama and theatre to the ambiance, as food is prepared in front of diners. During spring and summer months, tables flow out on to Floral Court, giving diners the opportunity to eat and drink al fresco. La Goccia Bar has a lively and botanical atmosphere, serving nature inspired cocktails. A perfect meeting point which overlooks Floral Court, the interior reflects the ever-changing seasons and inspirational floral displays in the courtyard beyond.

    Fantastic find, convenient to theaters in the Covent Garden area. Small-plates concept, but the portions are decent sizes. We had two of the starters and two that are more in the nature of mains, plus a side of delicious roast vegetables, and that was plenty for two people. We particularly liked the pacchetti al ragù and the pork chop. It's part of the Petersham Gardens operation, so all the ingredients are fresh. Good selection of Italian wines. And no cancellation fee!! I'm tired of places demanding £35 pp when our whole tab would probably only have been £90 before VAT and service. We will go to La Goccia again.

    When we last dined here 5 years ago, the food was good but the service was so bad we subtracted the 12.5% service charge from the bill. Ir was therefore with some trepidation that we sat down for a pre theatre meal ahead of Plaza Suite. We needn’t have worried. Our Roumanian waitress was a gem, and we had water and wine on the table within a few minutes of arrival. The tapas style sharing plates followed, with olives, antipasti, tasty chicken, and padron peppers. The only glitch occurred after the risotto had made an appearance, because our table was a mere 30 inches square and by now there was so much on it that an infelicitous move pitched it on to the floor. It was replaced without charge. For pudding, we had the apple crumble and custard millefeuille - actually an exquisitely light confection, hardly larger than a canape, washed down with espressos. With a bottle of their least expensive Italian white (£49), plus an extra glass, the bill for 2 (including the service charge, now up to 13.5%), came to a pricey £167.
