Just in time for the end of Lockdown 2.0, Bournemouth is getting a new Italian restaurant. Let us introduce you to Tocco…
There is still every hope that Lockdown 2.0 will end at the beginning of December. And with that should come the arrival of Tocco, the latest Italian restaurant to grace Bournemouth. It will take over 1812, one of the two venues based at the Royal Exeter Hotel in town centre.
The name Tocco comes from “Il Tocco d’Italia”, or The Touch of Italy. The restaurant blends the street food of Southern Italy with Venice’s renowned cicchetti bars. With this in mind, diners can a wide selection of hand-made pizzas and cicchetti (comparable to tapas), all made in-house from scratch.
In a statement, Tocco’s team explained their passion for using the best ingredients and traditional methods to prepare their food. Furthermore, customers will be able to customise their pizza with the choice of three different doughs. Meanwhile they recommend the cicchetti to be enjoyed with Prosecco, Peroni or Aperol Spritz – whatever the customer prefers.
“We can’t wait for you to experience ‘il Tocco d’Italia’,” the team’s statement conclude. “Something exciting to look forward to in these challenging times!”
