Numerous service hiccoughs made for a rather disrupted evening. We had ordered appetisers, a first course to share and then a main course each but for some reason first and mains came together. When we flagged this we were told they could keep the main courses downstairs - sorry but at 40 quid a course that’s not good enough. Plates were cleared while we were clearly still eating, we were charged more expensive wine than we had ordered.

We were very disappointed in the staff at Boccocino. One of our friends has a life-threatening nut allergy. When we asked the waiter for assistance, he did not take it seriously. Will not be going back.

The food was very good, but the service was poor. We book a table for 4 person. We recive 1st the beer for my father and then, after the starter were at the table, we recived the rest of our drink order (wines and water).
The pizza was cold and arrived when the rest of the table had already almost finished the main courses.

food was excellent, service friendly and outstanding

the only item that took a bit away was the music. its was a bit loud for dinner a the 80s disco music a bit much for a place tagged as romantic :)

aside from that I highly recommend!

Food was great and originally had a lovely vibe, I was able to speak to my friend. The music then became incredibly loud with the live DJ which would usually be great but I literally could not hear my friend talk and we could not have a proper conversation.

Service wasn’t great as there seemed to be only one person serving to begin with. It was only later where the restaurant became busier that more waiters started appearing. Each time we needed something we had to wait for a while, though the food did arrive quickly.

Food was great but service was absolutely appalling. I get really uncomfortable there as the staff were just awful, there was a really bad atmosphere amongst them. We regularly get better service in chain restaurants that are a hell of a lot cheaper to eat in, which really shocked me. We are also the most easy going of people too, but this was just unacceptable. They need to send all their staff on a customer service course ASAP. In fact send them all to Hotel Cafe Royal and ask them to train them. Their staff are bloody amazing. Polite, attentive, friendly, helpful and caring, and most of all make you feel welcome!

If you want an experience then definitely go here, stunning and romantic Bocconcino is definitely a go-to. Although the food is quite tasty and portions are very large they do need to work on the service as you might find yourself to multiple different servers, would be much better if an individual server was set to each table to create a relationship between consumer and business as they are all quite friendly just bit troublesome waiting around looking for someone to talk to. Other than definitely 5/5 as it allowed an experience of a nice meal with the right atmosphere for most occasions.

We had a great table at the far end of the ground floor.

The service was charming and polite. The first course beetroot salad sounds quite ordinary but was amazing.

The rest of the food was also fantastic. I chose one of - if not the - most affordable wines on the menu at £60 and it was delicious.

The bill was enormous at £280 but I would definitely go back as much as possible!!

Service unprofessional to say the least
1- an accident occurred by the table ( a bottle of water from the fridge went on the floor and broken) apologies only after my wife showed concern for the waitress if she didn’t injured herself.
2- consistently swearing in italian - I’m italian myself therefore I could understand - by the nearby station.
3-wrong pasta delivered for my 4 yo who had to wait 5 more minutes after our starters were on the table
4- dirty wine glasses removed from the table only after overheard our comments and the waitress put it back in the cupboard
5- sommelier tasted our wine far from our table without asking permission which I wouldn’t have any problem to give
6- my wife asked to try the wine and afterwards I have been served first
7-the same waitress mentioned twice above spent most of the time lying on a wall in the restaurant watching with no action
8- ordered fish cooked in salt crust, no veg side offered when ordered and surprisingly it arrived plain. The waiter that portioned it at the table made a semi disaster with a good part of the fish not served and the rest dump on the plates
8- 2 chefs de rang and 4 demi plus a bunch of runners and a sommelier? To serve about 15 tables?
9- only seen the chef de rang when he took our order.
The presence of a professional in charge is warmly recommended.

I booked this by accident. I had meant to book IT on Dover Street, but we made the best of it. Its very noisy in there so that doesn't fit already with the price point. The food was very good and portion sizes were excellent, I picked the most adventurous of the items on the menu but a lot of it is very predictable and not very exciting. The toilets are a bit poor, no paper in the one I went to and I think at this price point there needs to be cotton towels nice soap, an orchid or something, they're basic. Wines are amazing and a huge variety and the server (a man who seemed quite senior) was very knowledgeable about them. At £300 for 2 courses 2 people and no sign of the set menu we had actually booked it was a bit steep for the experience I feel. To sum up its a bit like an upmarket prezzo. I don't think I would return but hey I am just one person's opinion.

Very average food at inflated prices.
Service was ok but charmless compared to other good Italian restaurants in London
I also found the menu uninspiring.
I did not think you could go wrong at a top Italian in London
This place clearly doesn’t get it in terms of a charming Italian restaurant serving fabulous food

We sat at the table and they forgot about us, we waited for a long while and kept on trying to get host/waiters attention.

Eventually someone came to us but said, they couldn’t take the orders and will find the manager. Then we waited some more and the manager eventually came.
Food was served quickly but one of the dishes was wrong and had to be taken back.
They placed olive oil on our table and forgot the bread/pastry to go with it… they didn’t serve it to us and eventually the host just removed it from the table.
Whilst serving food, when the runner bought it from the back to the door and passed it on to the waiter. It’s as if waiters were unaware of table arrangements or which table had ordered the food. They would speak for at least a minute or more over the food, which is very unhygienic.

The food was okay but the whole service was disappointing and unorganised. I had high hopes.
