That’s why the team works everyday to make it possible for the customers to appreciate every dish and to let them become aware of the passion behind them.
High quality products, carefully selected
«Looking for the best products is the base of every Bosco’s dish» Federico Testa, the restaurant’s owner, told us. «Italian’s cuisine is known and appreciated all over the world especially for the taste of its ingredients. Bringing these tastes to Berlin, means to build a relationship based on trust with the producers and, at the same time, ensuring fresh and seasonal ingredients. Most of the products we use come from small Italian suppliers, especially fruits and vegetables. We monitor the seasonality of every product in order to provide the best flavors to our customers and to let them discover the different characteristics of every ingredient. The ongoing research behind every dish allow us to have high quality products and to constantly think about new combinations. This can be applied also to the wine section, which are all Italians and mostly natural. The wine list changes and develops as the menu does: our aim is to let the customers taste the recipe features at the highest level and, in order to do that, we combine each plate to a different wine».
A non-stop discovering menu
«Our menu is based on three main elements: ingredients seasonality, products’s availability and creativity. Every new recipe is our teamwork’s result. Giacomo Meloni is our chef while Filippo Bena, Raffaele Baroni and Michele Scuderoni actively work in the kitchen. For us, creating a new dish means experimenting, trying new match-ups and reinventing traditional dishes in order to impress and surprise. Before including a new dish in our menu, we confront ourselves, sharing and comparing ideas, trying the recipe many times until we find the right balance of flavors. So, every dish has its own story and we like to explain it to our customers, letting them understand the concept behind Bosco’s kitchen. It’s not always easy to go off the grid and prove that Italian cuisine is also made up of innovation. After more than two years from the opening event, we noticed a positive response from our customers and we are able to transmit them the passion that characterize our work. In fact, a lot of them come back to try other dishes, especially our risotto. In my opinion, this dish is the best representation of Bosco’s idea of cooking: risotto is made of simple ingredients, the good taste comes from flavors’ harmony and new combinations’ research».
An evening dedicated to good taste
«A dinner at Bosco has to be a moment dedicated to feeling good at the dinner table, having a nice evening, eating properly and having fun. Our attention for details, from the dishes’ presentation to the styling of the restaurant, reflects our care for quality, without turning it into an stiffed place. Bosco is a young and creative place, where you can feel at home. We like to tell our customers about the processing and the ingredients used for each of our recipes, trying to set up a complicity relationship. The answer is positive: people are curious and happy to discover something more about what they’re going to eat. These feedbacks make us proud, they mean that our customers understand and appreciate our cooking’s philosophy».
