Bocca Di Lupo
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.
Need to book at 7:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Our lunch was one of the highlights of our recent trip to London! We enjoyed sitting at the counter and watched the chefs create amazing dishes in a fairly small space. Our server gave wonderful recommendations and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Extensive wine list and lots off options for dessert. Prices were reasonable and most menu items were offered in both half and full portion sizes.
Not as good as it used to be - the food was done well but nothing spectacular, just good comfort food. Portions are smaller and less value for money. Ambience and service were the great - attentive and enthusiastic staff.
My waiter was lovely. Sat at the bar, but your team behind the bar were always chatting amongst themselves and totally uninterested in serving me. The worst bar seating ever. Counters were too high to relax and read to dine. It was just me. The Food was just ok...nothing outstanding as reviewed. as I mentioned, my waiter Sergio was so kind in deboning my fish.
Good food. Service satisfactory.
Nice food, good service, good value
All too complicated! The restaurant was overcrowded and noisy. We booked well in advance but got the worst table, I was bashed into by fellow diners on several occasions. The lighting was so low I had trouble reading the overly complicated menu. The menu left me confused and I chose a simple risotto because it was recognizable as something I knew. It was really dull. So disappointed as I was really looking forward to it.
The noise level spoils the appreciation of the excellent prepared and tasting food .
Salmon Tartar/Beef Tar, Mussels, Vitello Tonata. Fish Carpaccio, pork belly etc all very good.
The food here is excellent and the pre/post theatre deal is a steal. The squid pasta on the deal was great and really good value. Starters were also excellent and were the puddings. Wine was very good value. It is worth sitting at the counter so you can watch the kitchen at work.
The food used to be fantastic, alas, the current menu did not do well - The wine list has also changed and overall disappointed with the quality of the food an indeed the authenticity.
This was our fourth time dining at Boca Di Lupo over an 18 month period. It is outstanding in quality, creativity, service at a most reasonable cost. The absolute consistency of the quality is impressive, not just from dish to dish, but from visit to visit. And, as one of us has food allergies, the careful individual preparation of so many dishes makes it a joy of a dining experience. So many cooks of limited range pretend to be chefs. At this restaurant, the chefs are simply brilliant. And the waitstaff really know the food. Not a place to go for a quiet meal, but you’ll be too busy enjoying the food to much care.
One of my favourite places in London
It never disappoints! Great food fantastic wine and awesome service
At last I managed to get a booking and It was worth the wait! We sat at the bar and watched all the staff working seamlessly together. The food was fabulous every dish amazing we will definitely be back again. Thank you 😊
a friend introduced me to BDL for my birthday a couple of years ago...and since then i have enjoyed continuing that tradition and have introduced several friends myself. They are always a little intrigued by the menu and the wines and always delighted and impressed by the food and service.
Wow! Great buckwheat pappadelle with goose raging and delicious John Dory.
Used to be very good, not anymore. A bit disappointed
good prices, allows you to try many things from menu, small pasta dishes to share.
very good flavours and very welcoming, attentive staff
would definitely return
It’s my favourite restaurant, never disappoints, the food is fantastic, I love all the exciting flavours!
Absolutely fabulous food. Delicious, inventive, beautiful. One of the memorable meals of my life.
The food, service and ambience were excellent, it was just a bit uncomfortable sitting at the bar, where the seating isn't really set-up at the right height for eating. I'm sure as a drinking bar, it would be fine, but as an eating bar, the tools and bar are at the wrong height for normal sized people.
Great food - wonderful service. Only downfall is that sitting at the counter you are quite low to the table & it’s quite tight so there’s a bit of elbow bashing!
Great value and great service. The food was delicious and we had a really lovely and memorable time. The only thing was the restaurant at the back is quite loud (but this also makes for a great atmosphere). Will be coming back for sure!
The food never disappoints. It’s authentic, always very fresh tasting and also inventive. The service is always top class and the waiters are always extremely knowledgeable. Unfortunately the restaurant is quite small and they do pack people in. There’s hardly any room to move and the noise level from people chatting makes it a challenge to hold a conversation.
Brilliant food, incredible bread and great service. We’ll be back!
I have been here a few times before and the food did not disappoint. The service was also great except for the fact that we had to wait a bit for our table. Love this place.
A very good all round experience. A wide choice of dishes and the option of small or large portions is an excellent idea. Very good local wine at a reasonable price. Service was excellent, attentive but not overpowering.
The food was very hit and miss, bland with nothing too memorable or exciting about it. Worst of all of was seeing a customer personally thank the chef on his way, and then all the staff were taking the mick out of the customer. On top of that, the constant swearing at the passe is not so nice to hear when you are sitting right next to it!
Went for per theatre drinks and a meal. Excellent and friendly service and the meal was outstanding.
Seats at the chefs counter/ kitchen amplified the experience in appreciating the food and the cooking skills to present excellent food, hot, timely, great quality and value paired with wines from the Sommeliers knowledgeable recommendations .
Wonderful staff and food. As always such an amazing time!
Superb. Couldn't fault it in anyway. The food was excellent the drinks menu was great and the best Negroni Blanco ever.
It was very nice experience. The steak was perfect- recommended.
Value for money for such outstanding food in London
Our fourth visit - this time with two friends so we sat at the back of the restaurant, rather than at the bar.
Service was excellent as usual with the waitress providing her recommendations and input.
The ragu is a firm favourite as is the sea bream carpaccio.
Our favourite Italian restaurant in London.
Fantastic restaurant for dinner before the theatre and the staff was outstanding- attentive without being overbearing and it was clear they work as a brilliant team, with much humour! The food was delicious too- we will be back!
Fabulous food - wonderful grilled mussels with chilli oil, caponata, prawns with squid and delicious wine all complemented with great service. Will be back...
A wide ranging menu and wine list. Also do wine by the glass or carafe. A great "buzz" in the restaurant it was busy but that had no negative effect on the service. Loved it.
Excellent in every respect
Took my parents here for their 40th wedding anniversary. Most of the food was excellent, pasta was a little cold and small portion could be better described as bite size. Restaurant was extremely packed with tables very close together. I couldn't get my chair in properly as the man behind me was so close, kept getting bumped by customers and staff. Very small table for 4 people, very little room for food and drinks, had to keep rearranging. Insanely loud, couldn't hear each other talk. Specials were sold out before 7pm which was disappointing. 12.5% service charge added automatically. Overall was disappointed, general ambience did not make this a good spot for a special occasion.
Absolutely outstanding service and beautiful food.
Fab little Italian and loved the tapas style menu. Gorgeous food and atmosphere pre-theatre.
