Lunch At Noci Battersea Power Station London SW8

Planning ahead, I had chosen Noci Restaurant at Battersea Power Station for our lunch after a game of ping pong at Bounce. We enjoyed a fantastic table tennis match and delicious pasta for an enjoyable Friday. We were on a tight schedule because we needed to get home to collect our puppy for doggy daycare. Luckily, everything turned out perfectly, thanks to the prompt restaurant service. For those looking for Italian restaurants in Battersea Power Station or the best places for lunch, try Noci.

Noci Menu

The menu is concise, which speeds up the deliberation process. Begin with vegetarian delights like house pickled vegetables and focaccia, or venture into meaty starters like ‘Nduja arancini with Parmesan foam. Meanwhile, the seafood options feature red mullet with butter bean hummus. These are priced between £3.50 and £11.50.

Due to our tight timeline, we bypassed starters and dove straight into the mains. My partner and I shared the vegetarian brown butter cacio e pepe ziti, a Roman dish known for its simplicity and flavour. The thick, long, cylindrical tube pasta was coated with a comforting cheese and pepper sauce; every mouthful was a joy!

The porcini and shimeji mushroom tagliatelle was a highlight for me, with its rich flavours and creamy texture. The woodsy shroom taste was delightfully delicate. Our friend chose the paccheri (large tube pasta) with smokey chestnut and sage. I considered this dish, which looked enticing, so I’ll try it on our next visit. Meat and seafood pasta options included veal and pork Genovese ragu and tiger prawn gnocchetti (traditional Sardinian pasta shape with ridges). The main dishes were priced from £10 to £16.50; the portions were modest, and I would have loved more.

For dessert, we shared a plant-based chocolate mousse, which was rich and decadent. Other tempting options included a lemon, yoghurt budino plus a coffee and tequila cheesecake, these cost from £6 to £8. Post-table tennis, we skipped alcoholic beverages, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the cocktails and Italian wines.
