We visited Bocca di Lupo on a Saturday night in October.
Good points – quality of most of the food was excellent. We had mixed starters, the highlight being the crudita di mare – raw scallops, sea bream, prawns and langoustine, which were so fresh they just melted in your mouth. I also had the pork and fois gras sausage, which was bursting with flavour. Clean plates all round. The sommelier was also very helpful – we specified what we were eating and how much we wanted to spend, and he came up with a fantastic recommendation (which was not something we would usually have gone for).
Bad points – the service was a little brusque. We asked for help in selecting our food (not having an idea of the size of small/ large plates), but really didn't get much assistance, other than a “look at that table's food over there”. When booking, it was not mentioned that we would have to vacate the table within 2 hours – this was only confirmed the day before during a confirmation call. We had planned a celebratory meal with friends, but in the event, had finished coffee by the time we were asked to vacate the table.
All in all, I would recommend.
