Bocca di Lupo

Bocca di luppo
A few of my friends were raving about this place so I was excited to check it out. After trying a couple of times (the place is always fully booked) I managed to get a table for 4 – when you’re with 2 they will seat you at the bar, which is also nice. At first, I was afraid it was going to be too pretentious as the surroundings felt a little over the top glamorous (for an Italian), but it turned out to be an honest, lovely and buzzing place. We chose to share a selection of small dishes as starters and for our main course as we couldn’t decide what to get from the enticing menu. My favourites were the Crudita di Mare and Baccala (salted pollack fish). Exceptional food and wine, superfriendly host and waiters.  I’m planning on coming back soon. 12 Archer Street | Tube: Piccadilly Circus | Tel: +442077342223 | Website | £££

The team behind Bocca di Lupo also have a little shop called Gelupo where they sell proper gelato, as well as olives, self made pasta and sauces, a selection of cheeses, fresh fish and wines. It’s located on the other side of the road of their restaurant and too good to miss out on. 7 Archer Street | Website
