What makes it so special?

The quality of the food here is just exceptional. Since opening, Bocca di Lupo really has really shaken up the Italian food offering in London. A great deal of care and research has gone into the menu and it's a thrill to sit up at the counter and watch the chefs at work only a few feet away from you.

If watching the kitchen isn't your thing, don't worry there are more traditional tables at the back of the restaurant! The nature of the restaurant is very informal with friendly staff who will be only to willing to help you make your selections from the menu. There's lots of choice and with so many tempting dishes it's great to be able to get a number of smaller plates (portions) and share them around the table with friends.

The place is usually buzzing and a reservation certainly at peak times is required.
