Not your usual familiar Italian restaurant. A very large tempting menu of dishes from around Italy. We had several small plates to share but wanted so many more! Mains were just as tempting but we could only choose one each. 😔 Will definitely come again...More

Italian food from different locations in Italy in a single place. Very good service and good food as well. The price is honest and it's close to the theatre region next to Covent Garden. Good place to have dinner after a show.

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!

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.
