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
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.
I took my husband out for a birthday dinner and I couldn't have made a better choice. The staff were great, wishing him a happy birthday at the door. The food was deliscious, saffron arancini was my highlight in a pretty perfect meal, the only downside was food envy at any dish that came past that we hadn't ordered.
Perfect - thankyou
Love this restaurant. The food quality is superb. The ambience is casual, good noise levels and pretty informal. Waiting staff are knowledgeable and friendly. We shared a number of plates which worked very well. I like that a number of dishes are offered as small or large so it enables you to choose your own meal or share. We had a late lunch booking so were the last ones to leave but we didn't feel rushed in any way. Would highly recommend. One of my favourites.
It is a pleasant dining experience. My friend recommended to go there for dinner in London. It's quite cozy and the staff are friendly. The portion of the dish is good and most importantly, the five dishes we tried are truly delicious. I will go again whenever I visit London again.
We went pre-theatre and it was perfect. Brilliant service, small plates (tapas style) and sensibly priced (both the food and the wine). We shared crab and samphire bruschetta, then langoustines, perfectly cooked tuna and squid, and an amazing borlotti bean side dish.
Our waiter gave us great advice in relation to portions, and although we didn't eat a desert we still had enough time to make it to our show in plenty of time. Including our excellent bottle of Verdicchio Cambrigiano and the service charge, the bill came to less than £120 which, in that part of the world is outstanding value.
My wife and I loved Bocca di Lupo. The ambience, laid back but efficient service, food and drink are all exceptional. We noticed Bill Nighy in there as we were leaving - if it's cool enough for him, that says enough for me!
Absolute best restaurant we visited on our weeklong visit to the city. Menu was creative and fresh, not the tired tried and true options you find at so many places in London. We got the fried sweetbreads which were savory and perfectly salted. Next we had the crab bruschetta which was also to die for, perfectly cooked and seasoned and the bruschetta was firm, with good crunch, but soft enough to bite into. Then the pasta, hands down best pasta we had ever had, even when my fiancé was in Italy. All handmade, melted in your mouth, and we tried the rigatoni with calves intestine with mothers milk still inside. The wine list is varied and yet still very accessible. We asked our server for assistance throughout and her dessert recommendation was in her words "better than sex" I can't remember what it was called but it was cream and strawberries.
I never have any complaints about Bocca di Lupo - it is simply one of my favourite place in London. I can never get tired of sitting at the bar table, having a nice chat with friends while the kitchen working with absolute enthusiasm and profession, producing outstanding dishes to be enjoyed.
I was immensely impressed by the Bocca Di Lupo.
The staff were all friendly and attentive to our needs.
The food was expertly prepared and very tasty. We were lucky to try out the tomato gazpacho, their wonderful bread, fantastic spaghetti pomodoro and giant tiger prawns.
Fantastico. I look forward to eating there again soon.
Our favourite Italian restaurant in London! Food is consistently amazing, especially the pasta dishes. We love sitting at the chef's counter but we sat in the main part of the restaurant this time as we had our baby with us. The staff were very accommodating and attentive. BDL is always on point!
Really good quality small dishes. Pasta cooked to perfection. Both Lamb and chicken were superb.
Were seated opposite the flame grill which was to hot but staff happy to move us when requested.
Overall an excellent pre theatre meal and will definitely be going again.
We were visiting my cousin in London and had heard about Bocca di Lupo as a great place for Italian food. Yes it is! A well curated, not overwhelming wine-list that pairs well with authentic Italian cuisine. Excellent service that took very good care of us.
