Even before entering the Townhouse we could feel the buzzing atmosphere resonating from inside the restaurant.

Bocca Di Lupo

I had high hopes of Bocca Di Lupo after my date spent the journey there raving about it. And luckily for him, I wasn’t disappointed.

This beautiful Italian restaurant is stylish, buzzing and served some of the best Italian food that I’ve tasted in London. We were seated at the bar which felt really relaxed and reminded me of eating out in New York.
