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.

    What a wonderful spot to enjoy larger than small plates locally grown selections prepared excellently. You won’t want to stop trying everything on the menu. Our server, Kelvin, was so knowledgeable and a delightful conversationalist. We felt like we had been friends for a long time. And we so appreciated the host’s kindness in locating us at a more intimate table as we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and my birthday. The champagne toast and lovely dessert was a special treat. Highly recommend this lively, but also comfortable restaurant for any size party for any occasion.

    Food was delicious and the staff were very attentive and kind. Our waitress was very knowledgable on both the wine and food. They were very kind to my husband who felt unwell after dinner (not related to the food!) and ensured to bring him water & sugar, so thank you very much it was much appreciated.

    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.
