It's difficult to find a place that is classy and not pretentious, where the food is consistent and not pompous yet still oozes Italian pride.
It's difficult to find a place that is classy and not pretentious, where the food is consistent and not pompous yet still oozes Italian pride. While they do offer dishes such as seafood and pasta, coming to Beccofino and not ordering one of their famous wood-fired pizzas would be like going to the Ekka and not indulging in a strawberry ice-cream. Criminal.
The décor is simple, and the verandah set-up makes excellent use of Teneriffe's tree-lined Vernon Terrace. The bar walls are lined with nothing but Campari bottles, which urges one to salivate at the thought of a Negroni. Ordered. Done. Delicious.
While devouring a Stracchino pizza featuring lonza (cured pork loin), you would be entirely forgiven if you mistook your current location to a pizza bar somewhere in Rome.
The suave staff are efficient and speedy, but good luck trying to keep your bib on waiting for your pizza with the smoky scent of the wood-fired oven firing up. Beccofino is best suited for a perfect lazy Sunday lunch, however their dinner menu is certain to impress as well.
