We saved this restaurant for our last evening in London and there is no doubt we saved the best for last! The ambiance is just beautiful! The service was outstanding and the food was beyond delicious! We loved everything about it from start to finish! We’ve eaten in some of the finest Italian restaurants in New York and this was right up there with the best of them. Just outstanding. Highly, highly recommend!

Absolutely delicious food!! It’s rare to find a restaurant that excels in both pizza AND fine dining. We had the pizza to start which was delicious and had the best thin crust I’ve ever tasted. We then had the scallops and artichoke salad. Everything was beautifully prepared. This restaurant has an amazing vibe. Highly recommend!

Food was good, if anything big portions for a taster menu. Amazing olive oil and great, friendly Italian staff. Lovely looking restaurant.
However the music really spoiled our experience. We did comment several times but nothing changed. 3hrs of sitting listening to clubbing music...complete with swearing! Made what should have been a good, relaxing night memorable but for the wrong reasons.

The food is excellent and the restaurant is warm and inviting. Bocconcino is quite small, but that contributes to the intimate atmosphere. The food is excellent, and there are some unusual and great dishes such as the artichokes alla Romana. The pizza is a must and the ravioli is amazing. Be careful, however - they add 12.5% service charge, which is fine, but also leave the credit card machine open for another tip, which I thought was quite cheeky.

great place all round - service, food and staff. I suggest what I had for lunch, Caesar salad with prawns and truffle pizza. Both delicious and cooked with good ingredients. Asked a recommendation for a wine to pair and the White they gave did not disappoint. Lovely design which looks very nice,

Outstanding all round spot I recommend to colleagues frequently. The staff are well trained and service is consistent. Food is excellent and presented nicely. I would recommend the pasta with crab - excellent dish with balanced flavours. Great wine list with a variety of Italian and rest of the world options. Prices are aligned with local area and rather competitive considering Mayfair.

Really great Italian - traditional menu what you'd expect to find in Italy - delicious veal milanese very hard to find a better one in London area. Popular dishes on the menu what you's expect to find - linguines, pizza, seabass.... wide choice. Comfortable restaurant with generous seating. Friendly staff

I love this spot for a quiet lunch time treat - beautiful environ with professional and welcoming staff. Extensive and well curated menu - pastas, pizza, fish and meats - the grilled calamari is tasty and fresh - cooked very well with what seems a highly skilled kitchen. Desserts to finish are a must - lemon meringue cake is a firm favourite

Another excellent meal - Bocconcinos is becoming a new usual for us. Every visit is better than the last with a maintained quality of food and service. Consistency is hard to find but this might be a gem. Food is excellent - steak tagliata is perfectly cooked and their wine list only improves with time - great choice and knowledgeable sommelier.

Charming restaurant in the center of Mayfair which a relaxed and comfortable feel. Bocconcino was welcoming and friendly.
The food is well presented and cooked in traditional Italian style - delicious fresh quality ingredients that are well worth the price. The grilled calamari is delicious and I would order this again.
Wonderful selection of Italian and worldy wines

The food was fantastic. Service was slow (good luck getting the waiter’s attention for a second glass of wine). There was loud music playing that made it not the most relaxing dinner. But the food was top notch.

While visiting London, we actually ate here twice it was so good. The pastas are fabulous, the drinks were perfect and cold (yay!), and the entrees we had were perfection. One time we had the sea brine served table side - maybe the best fist I’ve ever had. The second time I had the veal - again probably the best I’ve ever had. The first time, the service was outstanding. The second time, it was fair. Still would totally go back again and again.

I was served undercooked pasta, which the waiter explained away because it was “handmade”. I have eaten pasta in restaurants all over Italy and this was not thoroughly cooked. Service was unresponsive. Ambiance was off putting. They played loud “clubbing” music, not appropriate for conversation or any semi-fine dining experience. Don’t waste your money.

Homemade pasta is delicious and well cooked. Portions are generous and filling, well presented dishes. Highly recommend and a new favourite!

The food was good above average, but the noise from the music made it impossible to have a conversation. I expected that when the live music started things would have got better, but it just got louder meant that people were screaming above the music to hold conversations.

The restaurant was very romantic for our special occasion. The very minor issues we faced were.

1. There wasn't a coat rack for our belongings. For such an upscale restaurant we didn't want to worry about our belongings being left out.
2. We had to ask a variety of times for our drinks to be refilled.

Apart from this, the food was delicious and had a perfect balance. We went for the 4-course menu which was more than enough.

The greeting at the front door was wonderful, the restaurant is beautiful and well lit. We had our water delivered promptly. Drinks were wrong (they forgot the vodka in vodka & club), water bottle was empty and I kept putting where thee waiter had to see it but instead of taking the empty bottle, they kept just moving back to where they wanted it to be on the table. We asked for all food to be brought out at once yet we got them brought out whenever they were ready. I had to get up to find the waiter to get another drink. The food however was exceptional.

This is a great place if you want to celebrate a special occasion. The food was great and the wine recommendation was very good. I had the lemon and merengue cake which was amazing. The service and ambiance were very good. Basically, although a bit pricey, one pays for the quality.
