Expert review of Il Boccone
The idea is simple but also, as the Italians would say, ‘geniale’ (fun and original): you assemble your own panino by specifying the type of bread you want and the fillings, which are on display behind a large deli-style counter. Or you can opt for one of the house specials, like the Palermo, which comes with grilled aubergines, Favignana tuna, cherry tomatoes, grilled onions and fresh mint. They also do a few salads and soups, plus beer, water and soft drinks.
It’s essentially a takeaway, done in a clean, contemporary style – but for those who can’t wait to eat there’s a bar counter with stools and one tiny table inside.
All very efficient.
Piazza di Pietra is between the Pantheon and Via del Corso – a little closer to the latter.
Regular panino prices run from around 4.50-7 euros depending on bread, size and filling ingredients.
