We’ve been to Bocca di Lupo more often than we care to count. It has been without doubt one of the best restaurants in London for the past few years. It’s one of those class of restaurants that promoted the concept of sharing plates and open kitchens, when there were hardly any restaurants that offered that type of dining experience. Through the years it has proven a popular concept but few restaurants have been able to match Bocca di Lupo in its execution.
During our latest visit to Bocca di Lupo we tried the following dishes:
- Pappardelle (8/10)
- Suppli and Bocconcino (9/10)
- Baccala (8/10)
- Camone tomato (8.5/10)
- Fried crab (8.5/10)
- Fried mullet (9.5/10)
- Castelfranco (8/10)
- Roast potatoes (9/10)
- Granit-A-laska (9/10)
As always the food at Bocca di Lupo was phenomenal. Every single plate tasted so fresh and packed full of flavour. This truly is one of the best restaurants in London. We’ve have visited so often and never has the cooking let us down.
Unfortunately not the same can be said about the service. Usually the service is very good at Bocca di Lupo, but there have been some instances in the past when the service has taken away from the overall experience and this was one of those times. We waited 40 minutes for our coffees to arrive, which is just unacceptable for a restaurant of Bocca di Lupo‘s standing. Hopefully they can improve the level of service to always match the level of cooking, because if they can achieve that I don’t see why it’s not worthy of a Michelin star.
The bill at Bocca di Lupo came to £100 (including service charge, a bottle of water and 2 freshly squeezed lemon juice).
