I’m still unsure how they knew it was her birthday as neither of us told them. Very attentive and friendly staff.

Restaurant was far too noisy, like a nightclub. Food good quality but expensive.
Service was attentive but not massively friendly.
Not in a rush to go back.

This place was recommended to me by a friend and it didn’t disappoint. First of all, the interior is beautiful, with a very grand staircase leading you to your seat.
Food was very fresh and everyone enjoyed what they ordered so I’d love to come back and try more of what they have to offer

No food for dietary requirements so had to leave and find some where else to eat. They told us she could only have fish or spinach from the whole menu and couldn’t come up with any alternatives. It seemed to us they just didn’t want to accommodate for her needs. So don’t eat here if you suffer with allergies.

I had high hopes for this restaurant but myself and my party weren’t impressed. We sadly found the food to be average with one of our party hardly touching his main. He didn’t want to complain but I would have expected some comment from the waitress when she collected his plate. It was cheaper to buy wine by the glass rather than by the bottle for some reason with only a couple of options at around the £60 mark with the vast majority been closer to £100’and above. The acoustics made it difficult to hear so overall not a restaurant I would return to.

Booked for valentines’ night for 4 people Winter Set Menu: 2/3 Courses £29/£35 when I was just about to order been told this offer is not available for tonight!! Someone actually called me few days before and took my credit cards details to confirm the booking- never mentioned the fast that the set menu is not available for valentine’s night. It was very embarrassing specially in front of my friends who I invited to join me for dinner plus traveling over one hour to get there. After few min of heated conversation with the general manager the problem was sorted with alternative arrangements. Atmosphere is ok – or it depends where you get seated. Tuna steak and Fusilli pasta with swordfish was amazing so compliments to the chef. If you never been there before it’s worth it but overall but I think it’s really overpriced so be prepared to pay min £30 for a plate and min £60 for bottle of wine.

Il Bocconcino est un restaurant "trendy", élégant et très bien placé (pas loin de l'Hôtel Ritz). Clientèle plutôt chic. On est très bien reçu, les serveuses sont professionnelles et souriantes; en bref, un service de qualité. On y mange bien, le menu propose un grand choix de plats: entrées- pizzas- salades - pâtes -plats principaux avec de la viande ou avec du poisson , et les desserts. Belle carte de vins. L'ambiance est classe mais chaleureuse. En arrière-fond, de la musique "lounge". Toutefois, c'est plutôt cher. Mais ça vaut la peine d'y aller si on veut tenter une expérience différente, loin des restaurants trop touristiques et bondés de monde, avec une nourriture de moindre qualité.

Insanely loud, more like a club than a restaurant! The staff were rude and disinterested. Can't comment on the food as we walked out- if I'm paying ridiculous prices for food and drink I expect to be treated with courtesy and be able to enjoy the atmosphere without feeling like I'm in some rubbish bar that plays euro techno. Will not go back!!

My husband and I ate here after a bit of shopping so our reservation was mid afternoon on a Sunday, there were only 4 fellow diners when we arrived. Atmosphere therefore not exactly stratospheric!
It started off well after a delicious prosciutto to start, but after ordering the fillet beef for mains, the heavily salted food appeared. Steak was average 150g( I ordered it medium but it came medium well), note the steak weight average was not given on the menu, I should have realised.
I’m a fan of chunky chips so size wise they were great, but I’m not a goose fat fan as find the after taste is not pleasant. Sides of spinach and broccoli were flavoursome. The large pile of rocket on the plate is unnecessary, but I think the volume was more about filling the plate with something as the steak was tiny as previously mentioned. This was a la carte as opposed to a set meal where you may expect them to cut corners. We eat around this area frequently so are familiar with price and produce, this was not a fair match this time.

Great service and cool atmosphere/location but the food and wine prices were ridiculous. It's not that the food was bad, but it was nowhere remotely close to the price tag; ~£30 for a pasta dish. No bottles of wine <£60.

Ambience and food was amazing. Service could have been better, I noticed only 1 waiter around. We had to wait long before we could get his attention. Overall it was lovely and worth going but very pricey if ordering a la carte.

I cannot see this restaurant surviving long in London. Our starters were either tasteless (minestrone) or over-salted (beetroot salad). The mains were slightly better, but nothing to write home about. The service started off great, but then later we were left sitting with no food, no drinks, and no bill for a long time. The negronis were so horrible that we had to send two of them back – the second one being the "improved version". Don't waste your time or money.

Sevice was very good. Staffs kindly gave us all sevices, including chech-in, ordering, explanaton for the menu.
Pizza, caprese and tiramisu were excellent, so delicious.
Unfortunately, spaghetti was little bit firm and solty for me.
This price may be natural in London, but if it is cheaper, nothing to say.

If you want an authentic Italian restaurant in Mayfair you can’t do any better than Bocconcino. The stuff make you feel as if you are visiting their home. We had an amazing saffron risotto with gold leaf, vitello tonnato, and tiramisù. Absolutely recommended
