"If I can just pick at a little of everything, in the end I will have eaten despite the fact that I'm not hungry." 

Salvo Montalbano


Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo opened Bocca di Lupo in November 2008.


The restaurant has since received various awards and accolades for its stripped-down, honest regional Italian cuisine.

Despite the buzzy feel and glamorous surroundings, we are a family business, a small and humble trattoria at… heart.


We specialise in the obscure and the delicious highlights of food and wine from all across Italy's twenty regions. If we can make something ourselves, we do - gelati, breads, sausages, salame, pickles, mostarda, and pasta of course - the rest is carefully sourced from Italy.

for pre- and post-theatre reservations

We only have limited online availability.

Please note that all reservations for two booked on-line will be accomodated on our Chef's Counter. These are seats on high leather bar stools, backless with footrests, in front of our open kitchen. If you wish to see if we have space on a table, and to enquire about our full availability, please call us on 0207 734 2223.


For now, we book parties of up to 6 guests as a maximum.

For larger parties, we sadly have to wait for the COVID secure rules to change. 


COVID safety


Our full COVID safety statement is here. We have installed beautiful but also effective screening for safety, and have numerous measures, visible and invisible, to mitigate risk at Bocca di Lupo. Our staff are divided into completely segregated cohorts (bubbles) to minimise risk to customers and to staff, and in the event any might be exposed to COVID at or outside of work the entire cohort is isolated at home for two weeks. 


We review at every opportunity our risk assessment in detail with Public Health England (who approve of the measures we have taken to date) , and ourselves every week. If you have any questions about this please email


We look forward to welcoming you, our beloved diners, back again with additional precautions to ensure your continued safety and trust.
