Refined rustic cooking, Italian-style
To say that Estonians have a love for Italian cuisine would be an understatement. You will encounter more Italian restaurants than ones offering Estonian cuisine in the Old Town of Tallinn. Bocca stands out among the better ones for its sleek design, but also refined interpretation of rustic Italian cuisine. The pasta dishes, for example, take something traditionally rustic and present them carefully plated, paying close attention to every detail. One can question if pasta really needs to be plated this elaborately, but the flavours are nonetheless sharp and rich. Bocca continues to feature game bird on the menu, and oven roasted wild pigeon served with salt baked carrots, onions, and dates. The underappreciated meat is paired beautifully with a glass of pinot noir, as suggested by the waiter. The small selection of fish dishes are also worth noting, like the grilled tuna fillet served with turnip fondant, Piquillo peppers and spiced red onion jam. We finish the meal with a classic tiramisu, a wonderful pick-me-up at the end...
