Lunch at Bosco Pizzeria, Bath

After their success in Bristol, Italian restaurant (not just pizza), Bosco Pizzeria, is finally opening on 19 August here in Bath! We were super excited to try it out during its soft launch. 

We started by ordering an Aperol Spritz (a classic, £7.50), and a Negroni Sbagliato (a nice twist on the classic that went particularly well with the balsamic that came with the focaccia, £8). 

For starters, we decided to go for a couple of nibbles. 

Focaccia [£3.50] 

This was amazing! Flaky salt crust with rosemary & the most beautifully developed dough. 

Nocellara olives [£3.50] 

These are our favourite type of olives, with their mild & buttery taste. 

Moving onto mains, there was so much to choose from. Despite its name, Bosco Pizzeria does much more than just pizza. They also do salads, pasta and some other mains like steak, as well as small plates including cured meats and cheeses. That being said, we just had to try some of their pizzas (how could we not?!) πŸ• 

With our mains we had two glasses of white wine. Our waitress recommended one to us and unfortunately we don't know which one it was, however we really enjoyed it. It was light & lemony. 

Bosco Bufala (mozzarella di bufala, slow cooked tomato, parmesan, garlic olive oil & basil) [£10.50] 

This was spot on! Great dough which was nicely charred & top quality buffalo mozzarella. 

Carciofi (artichokes, tomato, mozzarella, taleggio, green olives & pecorino) [£12] 

We loved this one too! It had 3 types of cheese & the taleggio added a kind of funky tang to it. This one is definitely more intense due to the cheeses, savoury artichokes & olives, but is amazingly delicious in its own way. 

Zucchini fritti [£3] 

We decided to get these as a side. They were crunchy with a light batter, but we wish they had come with a dipping sauce.

As for desserts, Bosco Pizzeria has a bunch to choose from, as well as gelato from Swoon (if you haven't been there, you need to go as it's SO good). By this point we were getting pretty full, but we went for the following.

Tiramisu [£6] 

This was fantastic. Light & fluffy with a great coffee flavour. It really stood out. 

Pistachio cannolo [£1.50] 

A crunchy exterior, sweet interior & lots of flavour from the pistachios. The perfect sweet treat when you’re looking for something small. 

To drink, we ordered a Limoncello which was a really nice balance between zestiness & sweetness [£3.50], as well as a Peach Bellini, which we saw several other tables order & was the perfect think for a hot summer day [£7.50].

We were so impressed with Bosco Pizzeria. The atmosphere was great & lively, the interior are upscale & tasteful and the waiters were all really helpful & polite, not to mention the *delicious* food. They also do small plates, salads, cured meats, cheeses, pasta & some other mains like steak. HIGHLY recommend πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
