A friend and I had drinks and dinner before the Thriller show. We both ordered a pasta dish with their home made spicy sausage; food very good. The service was outstanding. Our waitress helped us from wine selection to dinner choices; all spot on.

This is our 3rd visit to Boca Di Lupa and the food was excellent as previously. We had a table booked for 2pm on our wedding anniversary. The staff are always very polite & friendly. The service was a little slow at first, and then towards the end of our meal we felt a little rushed. But the food was... More

Came here for lunch. We were seated at the counter furthest from the door, this is where the waiters gather to shout at the chef. Don't get me wrong, seated at the bar is preferable to being sat at the back at a table - you get to see the food being made, you can be assured that the food... More

We had a lunch reservation for my wifes 40th. On arrival we were greeted nicely and the young lady immediately referenced my wifes birthday which was a lovely touch. I had booked for us to sit at the pass watching the cooking which I then wondered if that was a great idea once our British summer decided to join us... More

Was treated to a lovely Italian meal at this classy restaurant ! The food was so tasteful and fresh it was like being in Italy. The ability to choose from a tapas meal option to a shared main meant that everybody could chose their favorites. The wine range was outstanding ! Well worth a visit,

I was taken here by a discerning friend who eats out in London weekly. Very good food with a great deal of buzzy atmosphere. An interesting selection of Italian dishes. We shared a mixed starter. My particular treat was the roast suckling pig with girolle mushrooms and courgette. It was all well flavoured and presented. The meat fell off the... More

Started with a pulled pork salad with rocket and dattorini tomatoes, this was brilliant! Also had the baccala (salted cod) by it was SO salty it was barely... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
