Very Authentic Italian food.
If you have been around Italy, try this place.
Disappointing food overall. When you order a fritto starter they give you one stuffed olive! You should get at least 2 or 3 per portion. The downstairs feels quite tight, no windows, quite suffocating. Food was just average. Orecchiette were ok, parmigiana disappointing, carne battuta was nice but again nothing special. wine list is good but I was expecting something much better. There are many Italian restaurants in London a lot better, cheaper and more authentic .
Delicious food - we can’t wait to return to explore more of the menu. Our waiter was very knowledgable and attentive and made our evening extra special with his recommendations.
The food was very underwhelming. Pasta came slightly cold. It was very very average and costed a lot!
Love love love this place. Discovered it during lockdown with their at home meal kits. Restaurant atmosphere is fabulous, takes me back to the dining halls in Milan. Chaotic and fabulous at the same time. Food is exceptional and service is on par.
Engagement lunch! We loved it
It was a joy to be back at Bocca. The staff were a delight, especially out lovely waiter who couldn’t have been nicer.
A slight nuisance was the very very noisy plate storage before dishwashing. It was very loud. Everyone kept jumping. Apart from that it was perfect.
Lovely food abs service was excellent !!
Drink took long time to get to the table. Food very slow to arrive and when arrived was not served correctly. Very small table for 3 people, not space for dishes.
Lovely atmosphere and great menu with superb wine
Great place, and wonderful Italian cuisine.
This is one of my favourite restaurants - love the food & the ambience but this time we felt rushed from the moment we sat down, everything came fast and we’re removing dishes and drinks before we had finished them
Lovely as always
Super place, really helpful staff, loved watching the chefs prepare.
Fabulous lunch , really good value, great food.
So good to be back! Everything was spot on.
Service, atmosphere, food = perfect.
Really sad that standards have dropped so badly - I’m sure Covid is partly to blame but all the dishes were banged out without much attention to detail and it felt like no one really cared. A lot of it was cold, the langoustines were like little dried worms, the pasta was cold and the dessert was a stale bun doused in rum. It’s a pity - Bocca Di Lupo used to be my favourite restaurant. Probably won’t come again.
The food was OK, and it didn't maintain a good ratio quality-price. The service was good and speedy.
As always, amazing!!! If you’ve not visited Bocca Di Lupo you really should!
great restaurant - really different Italian regional food - great ambience - good service
Top class,simple as that.
It lends itself to the tier 2 rules so this visit was even more ideal as we ate several small plates and we moved on to another similar style restaurant.
Besides that we have visited on numerous occasions and it never fails.
Looking forward to you guys getting back into tier 2.
Best of luck 🤞
Excellent service during a busy lunch sitting. Food was delicious, can’t wait to go back.
Excellent, imaginative, unfussy food and charming, attentive service
Great food, super tasty and high quality.
Food was remarkable, very intense flavours, felt very authentic [tho' I'm no expert!]. service discreet, relaxed, and yet beautifully timed - someone there the moment you wanted anything. Atmosphere welcoming, warm.
Lovely place, lovely people, great wine list. All the food was really quite salty this time though. Even the salad. Still delicious, but it was noticeable.
Seating at the bar overlooking the kitchen was always good, but the pandemic has led to plastic dividers between every 2 seats in this area... this has made it even better imo (by reducing the ambient noise level).
One of the best Italian restaurants in London! Outstanding food and an exciting variety of dishes.
Partridge and Polenta Perfect. Can’t wait to come back. Thanks!
Best meal in London, the food sensational. The service wonderful and really well priced
Amazing food, great service! Such a good spot, will be back again & again!
Visited this restaurant after reading good reviews and although pleased to be sat downstairs and not at the bar this restaurant failed to deliver. We ordered five dishes, three cocktails and a bottle of wine. The bread was good but that was about it. The following dishes were average at best. We struggled with the menu as it wasn’t written in English and asked the waiter for help to which he replied order 2/3 dishes each. Yes but what are the dishes?! Found it very pretentious. All style no substance.
Love this restaurant. Food is outstanding! Definitely recommend the the Bagna cauda and the fried baccala, but everything we ordered was tasty. The service was swift and the counter seating comfortable. Will be returning!
Food was nowhere what I imagined. Originally it was an internet magazine review that had praised specifically the quality of the food that led me to decide to visit this place.
After a friendly greeting and exchanging pleasantries with the waitress at the check in, we were shown to our table. While I praise the establishment’s adherence to COVID social-distancing, not all tables were sealed from one another, one of those being ours. We were certainly not more then half a meter or one meter from the tables either side, let alone two. The staff, which I do feel bad for, but must be mentioned, certainly did not adhere to social distancing when not serving or required by customers. Although, I should point out, our waitress was very friendly and she seemed on stand by for any requests we had so that was nice.
We then ordered the (forgot dishes actual name) tangliatelli with beef, which, again, what seemed like after a life time, (I’m not sure why they called me the day before saying there’s an 1hr and 45 minutes maximum stay when each dish took about 20 years to come) arrived.
I was so disappointed with the quality of the main dish. There was absolutely no flavour to it, what-so-ever. Zilch. For a dish that’s of its price, ‘let down’ doesn’t begin to describe it. My greatest piece of advice to anybody thinking of dining here because of an avid Italian food passion- save yourself the disappointment and dine at any Italian fast-food chain for cheaper and better quality food.
We then ordered desert, the ‘grandpa’s balls’, and to put it frankly, it was absolute garbage. I’m not quite sure how a dish can be both disgusting and tasteless. Worst thing ever eaten, ever.
The atmosphere isn’t anything out of the special, except that there is a ‘restaurant’ option where people can ‘enjoy’ a normal dining experience, or ‘bar’ option where you can eat at the bar (Not joking).
Wouldn’t ever come here again if someone paid me.
As always an innovative menu, staff who are ‘real people’ not putting in a show, and buzzing ambience. Good wine list also.
Delicious food with good sized plates and a great atmosphere. Never disappoints!
Always delicious food, a bit rushed
arriving with daughter and new born baby in a pram, we were given the corner bar area, after discussion. It proved to be the quietest meal we have ever eaten at Bocca. In these semi locked down times we soon got into discussion with the lady in t he next booth -new born babies do that. Anyway, it was a lovely meal. Some favourites and some new things, the balls of chard and ricotta were recommended by the lady, and very good, and we were delighted to have an excellent Bagna Cauda. We even got to meet Jacob Kenedy, who is charming.
Great good, great service, and a fantastic Negroni
