Tucked away on Archer Street in the heart of London's Theatreland, Bocca di Lupo is a vibrant Italian trattoria restaurant catering to Soho socialites and luvvies alike. Ex-Moro chef Jacob Kenedy and his partner, general manager Victor Hugo, have created this chic restaurant renowned for its regional Italian dishes. As soon as Bocca di Lupo opened, it began earning enormous critical acclaim and ever since, this buzzy and highly accessible restaurant has continued to receive numerous awards and accolades for its simple, well-executed Italian cuisine and casual ambiance. The dining room at Bocca di Lupo is dressed with canvases by Haidee Becker, or if you���re seeking art in motion, curious culinarians may dine at the chef's counter with views of the kitchen at work. Signature dishes include the rustic pork and foie gras sausage with faro and porcini; and the burnt almond granita with bitter chocolate sorbet.
