About Bocca Di Lupo
Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo opened Bocca di Lupo in November 2008. The restaurant has since received various awards and accolades for its stripped-down, honest regional Italian cuisine. Despite the buzzy feel and glamourous surroundings, we are a family business, a small and humble trattoria at heart.
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.

Bocca Di Lupo Ratings and Reviews
This is my third time here and it’s been great every time. The only unusual thing is the menu changes a lot! That’s mostly good because there’s so much variety and the food is so good. The only down side is that if you find a dish, it may not last long so enjoy it!
From the moment we arrived it was a wonderful experience. We were promptly seated and our coats whisked away by the friendly hostess. Our sever Julia was delightful- very friendly,professional and knowledgeable about the menu and wines. We were restricted on time as we had tickets to the theater. Our family of 4 enjoyed several special artichokes lightly fried, the tortellini special, risotto with black truffle shavings, radish salad and wonderful steamed clams. Everything was perfectly prepared and arrived promptly. We enjoyed a lovely Rose wine and a carafe of red. Sadly we didn’t have time for desert. Highly recommend and will return next time we are in London and will make sure to make time to try desert!
Still the best Italian kitchen in London, and the small dish options let you try a wide variety. We tried the Roman ghetto snacks, duck pappardelle, liver with crisp polenta and unusual sausages with sides of pumpkin and Italian-spinach. Good service even as they became busier. Highly recommended
Such a great new discovery! Wonderful fresh pasta, and the suckling pig was incredible, a dish that would have sated Henry VIII himself.
The staff are charming and well trained. The lighting is considered and flattering. We had a delightful and relaxed lunch. And the Cowshed soap and hand cream in the ladies' toilets sealed the deal. I will be back for sure.
Really authentic Italian cooking from various regions .
No messing about with powders and smears.
Proper gutsy flavours -
Pigeon and bread lasagne , Spaghettini with sea urchin , Fig leaf pannacotta
Fabulous wine list , 4 types of negroni
Great service and lively atmosphere.
We certainly enjoyed our lunch in Bocca Di Lupo. Had a selection of starters which were good if occasionally a bit overpriced. Main courses were exceptionally good and portions were rather generous. The option to choose between a small and a large portion for some of the dishes is very smart. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.
Finally established that Bocca di Lupo (Into the mouth of the wolf) is a way of saying 'good luck'. Luck has nothing to do with the brilliance of the eponymous restaurant. Inventive superbly cooked food, served by absolutely charming staff in an atmosphere--to put it mildly--molto buzzy. Last Saturday lunch I swooned over the stuffed olives followed by a magnifcent--the only word-guinea fowl with chestnuts. Hard to believe it's only eight years old...I feel in the best sense that I've been eating at Bocca di Lupo for decades. More, please.
A Great Italian restaurant in Soho.
The decor is seductive.
The dishes are elaborated with the best ingredients, fresh. The chefs are creative without breaking with the tradition of the best Italian cuisine.
The service is great. It will certainly be a place I will visit whenever I return to London. Bravo
Thank you so much for the fantastic lunch you gave me on my birthday
This was a pre theatre meal for five people. Staff appreciated the need for speedy service. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience & meal. The starters were outstanding and we followed recommendations, sharing several platters. All very yeasty & unusual. Liked the option of small or large servings as this suited all of the party.
The 3 pasta dishes were all considered 1st class, very tasty, with plenty of meat (or fish) content. However 2 of the party opted for the seafood risotto. Portions were small despite full size being ordered. One had a good helping of seafood. Whereas the other had minimal and was therefore a bit disappointing.
The staff worked together excellently. When we arrived they were undergoing a pre-service meeting and this potential for detail was evident in the service provided.
Overall, would definitely recommend this restaurant and will visit again.
