BoccaLupo Restaurant Review

: Bruce Logue's self-styled Italian cuisine at La Pietra Cucina reappears in his BoccaLupo in Inman Park. The casual, modern, sparely decorated space seems a suitable fit for his approach to cooking. The personal pronoun "my" identifies elements that have Logue's own hand in their composition, such as his famous Calabrese sausage. Antipasti, fresh and extruded pastas, seafood-dominated "Not Noodles," and "After Pasta," meaning dessert, comprise the four-section menu. A signature dish from La Pietra Cucina transported here is the starter of spicy hamachi crudo in a cool cucumber brodo that toned down the heat and set off the flavors of the dish while playing them against the cucumber. We also enjoyed the Iowa prosciutto on flatbread with pineapple mostarda and Logue's own ricotta cheese. Then we shared a special timbalo wrapping tiny meatballs, tubular pasta and tomato sauce in pastry, adorned with a toss of small arugula in oil and vinegar. Nothing should cause a patron to pass up desserts like an "Upside Down" chocolate tart with squid ink-daubed chocolate cookie crumbs and ricotta embedded with slivers of orange zest. The intense dark chocolate is not overly sweet, making it a perfect foil for the fine espresso. The wine list showcases chiefly Italian labels, and Logue has assembled a smart and menu-supportive selection.
