Bocca Di Lupo
We specialise in the obscure and the delicious highlights of food and wine from all across Italy's twenty regions. If we can make something ourselves, we do - gelati, breads, sausages, salame, pickles, mostarda, and pasta of course - the rest is carefully sourced from Italy. A selection of Italian wines and home-made and imported foods is available for delivery, along with our famous gelato, from Gelupo.
Our Remus Room is a warm and sumptuous setting for any party. It can accommodate twelve to thirty two persons seated, fifty standing, and is always served by its own chef in a dedicated, adjacent kitchen.View Private Dining Details
What Insiders Are Saying
If you want to know where to find the best Italian food in Soho is, it’s at Bocca di Lupo.
High quality, Italian cooking. Lovely simple dishes, well presented in an appealing room.
Came in for a quick business lunch with two colleagues. Prompt, friendly, attentive service and excellent food.
We had a delicious dinner at this restaurant. While booking, we’d mentioned that it was our anniversary and the team gave us a warm welcome and a complimentary drink, which was a very thoughtful touch. The food itself was delicious. We couldn’t help trying all sorts on the menu and probably ordered a little too much. No room for dessert! Thanks for making our anniversary one to remember.
Great small and lively space! Good service. Food was good, although I wouldn’t say the best pasta I have ever had.
Food was amazing. Service first class, great ambience. A bit noisy due to all the hard surfaces.
Highly recommend went for lunch and had the tapas, next time will try the dinner menu.
Lovely food, pasta was particularly delicious as were the desserts. Great service and a buzzy atmosphere.
Nice to visit again after some time - a great meal with good choices of food and wine!
Excellent girly lunch with my 9 year old daughter; we sat at the counter which was great for watching the chefs cook. Food was delicious and the wine suggestion spot-on. The service was superb; the blonde haired lady who seated us was extremely kind to my daughter, gave advice about what to order, and packaged up what we couldn't finish to take home. Will be back soon with my husband for more of a date night.
Superb food and customer service. Transferred to a table despite booking online, nice touch and totally unexpected. Certainly one to visit again when staying in London.
Efficient service and delicious food from unusual menu. Starter of prawns squid and lemon slices shared - who would have known lemon slices deep fried would be so tasty. Reasonable price for dish of the day. Convenient location and a pleasure to be somewhere that’s not part of a chain and has high standards.
Superb. Food, wine and service were what top restaurants are all about.
Excellent as usual
A joy and a pleasure every time. I cannot get enough.
...among my top five London restaurants... I'm never disappointed
Good, authentic Italian cooking, 'trattoria' style, which means 'not fine food', which is not necessarily a bad thing. The deep-fried courgette flowers were very nice, as well as the fried calamari and prawns (very fresh) and the roast suckling pig (very tasty). However the roast potatoes that came with the suckling pig were vile (yes, I mean it). They were completely burnt and therefore inedible. As to the restaurant, it is quite outdated, with no vibe. It is also extremely noisy and expensive. £135 for two people. We only had a small starter, a small main and we shared the suckling pig with potatoes. No dessert. Wine: only a carafe of white wine shared by the two of us. I would recommend this restaurant for the food, but I find it too noisy and expensive, so no value for money. The service was average. I also noticed that the restaurant manager was so focused on serving the people sitting in the table next to hours and totally ignored us. We were clearly not as important as them! For all these reasons, I don't think I will visit this restaurant again in the future.
Outstanding restaurant!! Great service and delicious food!!
So another wedding anniversary (17yrs) and we celebrated with lunch spent at Bocca with our kids. Looked after by Phil and his lovely team (superb wine choice btw). Gawjuss food, perfectly balanced, cooked and presented. Bocca has such a lovely vibe and the front of house guys, charming as ever. The thing about Bocca is they are always consistantly good and this not only applies to what comes out of the kitchen but the service, friendliness, warmth and genuine ease in which you are welcomed and looked after. Thanks for a wonderful lunch. x
Great Italian food for a great price! Perfect place to grab some dinner before catching a show!
Nice atmosphere, buzzy feel without too much noise. Many delicious sounding choices, and good to know which region of Italy they are from. All the dishes we tried were excellent, blood orange granita a real highlight.
Very good Italian! We’ve been to the best in Tokyo and NY, but Bocca di Lyon is definitely up there with them all, if not better!! Great lively atmosphere and the counter seat by the chef was super fun to watch.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit for lunch. Food was excellent and staff were very helpful, especially with help choosing from the menu.
Very fun and possibly our best meal in London. We loved dining at the bar.
Very nice food and very well presented. Pasta is cooked at perfection!!
Tables quite close together, if a couple sitting at the bar overlooking the kitchen would have been quite fun.
Burrata, orecchiette and seabream carpaccio particularly tasty.
Amazing as always - great variety from all the provinces of Italy and very fresh food and ingredients. Risotto had too much salt in it, but the rest of the food was fab.
Everything was great but the counter seats were too close together, I was elbowed the whole night by the person next to me and got worse when he had more to drink. Waitress was nice but a bit irritating as she kept coming too often and breaking up conversation. Also, speaking very very loudly in my face to the point it was unpleasant. Other than that food was great and a good value.
Food is great, service was a bit rushed. Downside was that the tables are crammed too close together. Menu offers a great array of options. It is tapas style so you get to try many different dishes.
ONE OF THE BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANTES IN LONDON.EVRYTHING WAS PERFFECT
As usual the restaurant was busy, the food was superb, very good service by the staff and very good value for a central London restaurant.
Both food and service were excellent! The only negative was the receptionist at the entrance, who was rude and unwelcoming.
So tasty, so authentic and such fun! Bocca di Lupo is our favourite West End pre-theatre venue.
If you only go to one Italian restaurant in London, then make sure it is this one.
Great food and a great dining experience especially if seated at the counter. Was initially disappointed that our seats were at the counter, but it turned out to be quite an entertaining view of the open plan kitchen in full flow. Food was delicious, service exceptional - overall a great night. Thoroughly recommended - we will be back.
Anniversary dinner with the wife. Greeted with a surprise glass of champagne. Food and service was great!
We always have a fabulous meal her Never disappointed
Love sitting at the bar to watch food being cooked
Everyone very helpful and always make sure you have good service but not hurried
My favourite place to eat in London and can’t wait for my next visit
Amazing experience at the bar, watching the chefs work. Menus is set to where you can order small plates and sample different aspects of the menu. Staff was extremely kind and helpful.
Venue, decor, food, wine and service were all A*
Great service and good location for a pre-theatre meal!
We ate as widely from the menu as possible, wanting to try as many different dishes as we could. Everything was delicious; some dishes were outright spectacular. And being a wine merchant I was glad and impressed to see the wine list, which is nicely extensive and eclectic (in an Italian sense). Fabulous experience all 'round.
