We had a great lunch here sitting up watching the kitchen staff. The food was excellent. The suckling pig a highlight. Service was friendly and quick. Didn't find prices too bad. Would definitely come back. Overall very enjoyable.

Got a last minute booking on my birthday and revisited after not going in maybe ten years. It was even better than I remembered. Genuinely delightful and pleasurable food, served by friendly and well informed staff. If you get a chance, go.

I'm sure they would love it - especially if you manage to get seats at the bar where they can watch all the food being prepared - it's a great place with a fabulous atmosphere - my 16 year old son loves it!

Tucked away on Archer Street in the heart of London's Theatreland, Bocca di Lupo is a vibrant Italian trattoria restaurant catering to Soho socialites and luvvies alike. Ex-Moro chef Jacob Kenedy and his partner, general manager Victor Hugo, have created this chic restaurant renowned for its regional Italian dishes. As soon as Bocca di Lupo opened, it began earning enormous critical acclaim and ever since, this buzzy and highly accessible restaurant has continued to receive numerous awards and accolades for its simple, well-executed Italian cuisine and casual ambiance. The dining room at Bocca di Lupo is dressed with canvases by Haidee Becker, or if you���re seeking art in motion, curious culinarians may dine at the chef's counter with views of the kitchen at work. Signature dishes include the rustic pork and foie gras sausage with faro and porcini; and the burnt almond granita with bitter chocolate sorbet.
