Bitterly disappointed with our meal at Bocconcino. Service was amateur, waitress leaning across guests instead of walking around the table, different staff asking the same questions, the list goes on! The food was not good at all, the website photos and reviews are not a fair representation of the food and ambience of the restaurant. When booking I mentioned it was a birthday meal, this was not acknowledged by the Bocconcino team. I do not like leaving negative reviews about restaurants as I know the challenges the industry is facing, however in this instance I find it very hard to find anything positive to say. Bocconcino certainly know how to charge and this makes the whole experience even more disappointing. This is not a restaurant I can recommend.

Put downstairs in the lesser space as we’d booked at 5.00pm, food was excellent, service somewhat rushed and we kept slowing them down.
Would go again but upstairs in the more formal and nicer setting

The decor and atmosphere are really great! Food and cocktails are good but I find overall quite pricey for what it was. Probably due to the location.
We asked for a starter to share and then a main but they brought everything together so I felt a little rushed and could not enjoy the way I would have liked to.
In addition to that, they made twice a mistake with my friend's cocktail.
However,
It was nice to go once but I am not sure that I would like to go again.

Was impressed by the atmosphere and decor but that’s were it ended. The service was poor compared to cheaper restaurants, the food didn’t taste of anything and was overpriced, finally be prepared to pay £20 for a glass of wine. Overall, there are better restaurants out there, save yourself time and money by finding them.

The host that greeted us wasn't very pleasant, so I think that dampened the experience from the start. Being the first point of contact, having a warm welcome is probably the most important thing.
Food was good, service was good, nothing wow but nothing bad. A little underwhelmed as I had a bit more of an expectation over all. They did get my dessert order wrong but fortunately the server recognised this and very quickly mended it.
It's just a place to cross off but once you've been, wouldn't return.
Seating is quite close together and it is very noisy, I don't know if its just the room echoing or if its just the people were very loud.

We were in London on a work visit, had 5:15 pm dinner reservations, the restaurant was empty, yet we were seated right next to another couple. The server was very nice but spoke little English and had no clue about the menu or drinks, we actually felt bad for him. New servers came on about 6 and things improved. The meal was overpriced and mediocre at best. It’s an absolutely beautiful restaurant, but will not return.

Poor experience. Mains took over 45mins to arrive. By the time it had arrived in the evening, I had seen a handful of parties who had arrived at the same time have their dinner and leave - to give perspective we had arrived at 9.30pm ordered starters and mains by 9.45 on and were served mains at 10.43pm.
It was clear our order hadn’t been registered back in the kitchen; by the point I had escalated for an update on our food. It was on my third ask our food was rushed out several minutes later. The pasta was still raw and wrong sides brought over.
I eventually let the team know my disappointment in poor service and quality of the food. The manager apologised and continued on his way without any thought to rectify the situation. After skipping dessert I then had to dispute the voluntary service charge.
I eat regularly in and around Mayfair, the sloppy standards during my Friday night dinner was something I haven’t experienced in a while.

Had a really tasty lunch at Bocconcino with some lovely wine - there were some great selections and the waiter kindly helped us to choose! I had the seafood risotto and my friend had the ravioli with prawns and truffle - both were extremely delicious. We saw that they have DJs and a pizza bottomless brunch on the weekends so we will have to go back and try them out!
