"Just wow, wow, wow" pretty much sums up readers' unflagging enthusiasm for this rocking Italian eatery on a raggedy Soho backstreet. Don't be fooled by the location: beyond the brick frontage you'll discover a clattering bar counter (highly recommended) and an equally jolly, snug dining room; in both, the emphasis is on fastidiously sourced regional food and wines backed by an impressive larder of home-produced specialities (breads, pasta, pickles, sausages). It's true that "one visit won't do the large menu justice", but why not open your account with ricotta-sprinkled rigatoni with chunks of meltingly textured guanciale (cured pork jowl) or guinea fowl in Marsala sauce with chestnuts. Readers also go overboard about the carpaccio of sea bream with blood orange and the "snowy-white" Squacquerone cheese served alongside wafer-thin Parma ham and warm toasted bread – "pleasure-giving flavours" that are devoured with gusto. Keen-as-mustard staff clearly "enjoy imparting knowledge" and be sure to explore the terroir-led drinks list, which is an ever-fascinating delight.
Bocca di Lupo, which has been high up on my 'must go' list for quite some time, was booked and I was pleased to note my dining companion was dying to go also...We were seated to the back of the restaurant at its cosy bench seats and it's apparent that everyone here is thoroughly enjoying their meals.. the atmosphere is vibrant and full of energy. ..

I went to Bocca di Lupo for a weekday lunch with a dear old friend of mine. From previous failed attempts at booking a table, I made sure I made a reservation well in advance. It’s a popular venue and I can see why. We had an early sitting and already the restaurant was filled. You can either sit in the dining room or follow the more traditional style along the bar. Bocca di Lupo offer Italian dishes from across the regions and you can either order dishes in smaller portions and share tapas style, or order larger portions for individuals. Being foodies, we decided to share and try as much as possible. Along with the...

I went to Bocca di Lupo ages ago, way before I ever moved to London and since we have been here (almost two and a half years), I have been meaning to go back, but for one reason or another, I always had to cancel my reservations. Every time we went to Gelupo, their gelato place across the street, it reminded me that I wanted to make a booking and go back, but reservations are never easy to get, unless planned with a lot of notice.

Today it’s time for a leisurely Saturday lunch in the heart of Soho. How I love Soho with its myriad bars and restaurants, food stalls, stylish people and quirky shops.After much consideration we picked Bocca di Lupo as today’s lunchtime venue. It opened in November 2008 and has become a firm favourite on the Soho restaurant map.The restaurant is dominated by a long welcoming bar that runs down its length. And we managed to nab top seats – at the end of the bar alongside the window.
