You can do a lot of things at the counter at Bancone. You can eat affordable handmade bucatini cacio e pepe. You can drink several Aperol Spritz. You can impress a date over some seriously tasty burrata. You can find a tear in the space-time continuum and go back to stop Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield from splitting. Okay maybe not, but hey, we don’t know what you do. The point is, whether you’re at the main bar or the oval counter around a live olive tree, Bancone is a truly lovely place to be. Thanks to their signature silk handkerchief pasta and excellent pappardelle, this place is just as rammed as their original spot in Covent Garden, but there is a lot more space here and the turnaround for tables is quick.
