Arrive at 7pm if you want any kind of relaxing pace, we arrived at 8pm and they throw the first 4 courses at you within 15 minutes to catch up with the rat of the room. Restaurant is small, slightly tacky in my opinion. Service authentic but uncaring and rushed. Prepare to be fed about 10 courses of average Italian... More

You have to do this. A true meal experience. 7 courses freshly cooked, authentic Italian, served over 4 hours at lunch. The best food we have ever tasted. House wine £25 a bottle and was perfect ( and we had a sommelier with us!) the staff were friendly, the restaurant is small so you have to chat to the table... More

We had one of the most amazing dining experiences at Al Boccon Di'Vino - no menu you were just asked if there was anything you did not eat and then it was on - the food just kept on coming - one great dish after another - and just when you thought you could not eat another thing out came... More

An excellent place for those that relish the Italian experience of food but are not in Italy. This is the best meal I have had outside of Italy, and beats a fair few for the same price in Italy too. It’s not a cheap option, but if you want quality, and you are relaxed about there being no menu at... More

Visited many times. always excellent food so many good courses ,fresh seasonal ingredients. Superb wine list. Cant be beaten for a gourmet italian experience. As always go hungry and relax and go with the flow of 12 plus courses over an evening with friends and copious good wine, tignanello, barolo amarone at very good prices.

As a special birthday treat, my partner brought me here for lunch on Saturday. It was perfect! This is typical Italian style dining - don't expect to get there, eat and be out within an hour. Once you arrive, you're there for the long haul. There is no menu and all diners are served the same, which actually creates quite... More

We had heard about the restaurant in Richmond with it's large number of courses served according to the chef's available produce as there is no menu, all for a fixed price excluding wine of £45 pp. It's a small restaurant holding about 30 and tables are quite close and booking is essential. Lunch is only served on the last 4... More

The first two courses were excellent; anti-apsta and then a minestrone soup. But as the courses kept coming, either we got jaded or the quality declined. Certainly the longoustines were over-cooked badly, and whilst the first ravioli of asparagus and truffle oil was delicious, the second of pork was just too much ravioli. Just under 4 hours from arriving to... More

Many courses brought so many eating experiences each one better than the last. You feel you have joined a wonderful warm Mediterranean family for the day with delicious food. A real mini holiday and genuine taste of rural Italy.
