Sevice was very good. Staffs kindly gave us all sevices, including chech-in, ordering, explanaton for the menu.
Pizza, caprese and tiramisu were excellent, so delicious.
Unfortunately, spaghetti was little bit firm and solty for me.
This price may be natural in London, but if it is cheaper, nothing to say.

Great service, but all three pasta dishes were undercooked and instead of a fresh plate, just reheated in a pan.

If you want an authentic Italian restaurant in Mayfair you can’t do any better than Bocconcino. The stuff make you feel as if you are visiting their home. We had an amazing saffron risotto with gold leaf, vitello tonnato, and tiramisù. Absolutely recommended

Good time with attentive waiters and good food. Nobody rushed us and we sat opposite the pizza oven which was fun to watch the skilled chef spinning the dough

Amazing pizza. Ordered three types. All tasted different yet incredibly delicious. This is the best spot in Mayfair for pizza. The risotto was nice as well. The pasta is authentic which is a plus, but the pizza steals the show.

Awful food.
Waiters don’t think - putting two screaming high chairs on the side of a table where two people are eating dinner and leaving the other side clear.
Mayfair prices for awful food. £8.5 a pint as well is disgraceful
I never comment on restaurants but felt compelled in this case.

My three favourite Italian restaurants in London have for quite some time been Locanda Locatelli, Murano and Il Baretto. Bocconcino is now my new favourite. Many thanks for an amazing dining experience!

The best pizza, pasta Mayfair has to offer.
We have visited Bocconcino quite few times now, and everything on the menu cooked to absolute perfection. The pizza is definitely the best we have ever had. The beef steak is wonderful. I would also recommend to try the tiramisu.

This is by miles the best Italian restaurant in Mayfair. Everything from the beautiful decor to the quality of the food is just perfect. Been there twice now and every time want to come back again. Pizzas are fantastic, also the steak and fish meal is super. Service is great, hope to return on our next visit to London

Visited Bocconcino on a Wednesday night. The venue has an amazing interior and very warm athmosphere. I had a pizza and a handmade ravioli of prawns and Swansea with black truffle. Was absolutely delicious and highly recommended. I will be back again

Fantastic atmosphere, excellent food and remarkable service. We dined here several times during our trip to London. The staff made us feel right at home, and we sampled almost everything on the menu. The saffron risotto was amazing. This is undoubtedly my favourite Italian restaurant in Mayfair.

Very nice experience at Bocconcino, I hope to visit London and the venue very soon. First of all , I know many restaurants in Mayfair, but the staff in Bocco is exceptional. Lovely Italian people, our waitress was helpful and suggested some amazing dishes. On the end we had Pizza Margherita, Burrata, cotoletta di Vitello, and a huge Steak :) absolutely recommended

It was a total miss for us. Ambiance of the main restaurant is nice. We were seated in the empty back room which was much less impressive.

Chicken was the best dish. Pasta was also not bad. Salad for £17 was clearly from a bagged salad kit. Tiny dry croutons, limp leaves, tasteless dressing. The whole thing was embarassing. We asked for tap water, instead they brought us a £6 bottle of Aqua Panna- which is lovely, but not what we ordered. Overall poor experience wouldnt waste our time again.

Been here before with work friends and decided to take my wife there to celebrate our anniversary.
Ambience, service and food (we are vegetarian) is very good and the prices are what you would expect to pay to eat in Berkeley Square.

We only have two minor gripes. We arrived early so had drinks in the small bar on the lower ground floor. However, when being shown to our table on the upper floor we were expected to carry our own drinks up two flights of stairs rather than the waitress carrying them up on a tray for us to avoid spillage. Normally not a problem but the stairs are quite windy and you need one hand to hold the handrail and one would expect this higher level of service. Also I had informed the restaurant in advance we were celebrating our anniversary but they seemed not to know and it would have been a nice touch if they had mentioned it or prepared some special message with our desert instead of being asked to do so.

The food, atmosphere and staff were great. Our waitress made a great recommendation for our meal choices since we couldn't decide and everything was perfect. She even paired a yummy wine to go with our choices. Definitely would put this restaurant as a must do.

The atmosphere is very sophisticated and the service is outstanding, food is real italian, we loved the scialatielli and linguine con astice , a bit disappointed on focaccia con mozzarella because we were expecting mozzarella and focaccia separately instead it was melted mozzarella on top of the focaccia but it was really nice anyway ! More than recommend, we did have a great experience:)

Food was ok, service was terrible. No smile and eye contact from the waitress, I said “thank you” multiple times when she delivered our dishes and received no feedback, again, not even an eye contact. When we paid, she gave the card machine to us with one hand and just looked away the whole time, it was odd and rude. We complained to the manager eventually. It’s unfortunate that this is the service we received after paying 13.5% tips.

This is a spectacular restaurant for a special occasion with a great atmosphere & great food & excellent, friendly service.
The menu was great, both a la carte & a very good value set menu.
Only caution is the wine list which whilst ihas an extensive choice of Italian wines plus a few French/ rest of the world. The overall prices were very high, with prices averaging 100 pounds a bottle. However this is the only negative..

We were greeted with a warning that the table was only ours for 1 hour, 45 minutes. The salads were mostly wild greens. The black pasta was hardly black with a sparse sauce. The broccoli never appeared, bu the price of the pasta was upped to a more expensive dish. A disappointing event and definitely no worth a return.

The food and service was excellent! Staff were extremely attentive and helpful. The atmosphere was brilliant and very chilled, even though all the tables were busy you didn’t feel as though you were cramped. The tables were well spaced out. I would definitely return to Bocconcino!!
