boccascena

Elegant and informal restaurant,
Boccascena is eating and drinking with art.

History

The name Boccascena is a tribute that harks back to the heyday of famous theatrical venues of the 80’s. (The Boccascena, or ‘Proscenium Arch’ is the opening in the wall which stands between the audience and the stage in a theatre. In modern usage, such as with television or film, it is often called the fourth wall.) Originally an American Bar staging plays and cabaret shows, the venue also hosted performances from the early careers of Leonardo Pieraccioni and Massimo Ceccherini. The venue has been recently renovated in keeping with the character of the era, with original white wood furniture together with photos of the greatest Jazz musicians of the past and present. Under the new management, there are a multitude of tantalising combinations: from breakfast or brunch with cakes and desserts made in-house to a light lunch for your lunch break. There are also afternoon snacks with fresh fruit juices and smoothies and a dinner menu consisting of Mediterranean cuisine all accompanied by a sympathetic musical soundtrack. Refined yet informal, Ristorante Boccascena: eat and drink surrounded by art.

Room

Open for lunch and dinner, Boccascena distinguishes itself by its light, simple and carefully considered cooking.
