We went for the set menu and the food was delicious. I had the steak with onion and raisin sauce which sounds strange but was delicious. The food is reasonably priced but the wine list caters toward expense accounts so only some of us had 1 glass each.

Stylish Italian on the famed London restaurant scene around Green Park. We went on recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint. Extensive menu with so much choice you couldn't leave hungry, great selection of pasta dishes, and the catch of the day is a real treat on the menu. Superb wine list and charming service.

Very enjoyable evening with my partner, lovely ambiance and romantic setting. We ordered dishes to share and asked for a little break between the starters and main, the waiters were kind to accommodate and didn't rush our meal at all. Very attentive and prompt when ordering drinks etc. The truffle pizza is delicious we'll be back again soon for another!

Friendly welcome and very gracious staff. The meal was outstanding and we enjoyed every bite of our meal, the tuna tartare was delicious.

We're so glad we saved room for dessert; tiramisu and their chocolate tart were outstanding. Highly recommend.

TERRIBLE - AVOID.
I had booked Bocconcino’s for my wife’s birthday meal as the website read well, photographs looked good and the reviews were complimentary. However the reality was somewhat different. What a complete disappointment, and possibly one of the worst dining experiences we have had in years - anywhere. Whilst the decor and ambience of the place is contemporary, the quality and the presentation of the food is just atrocious. Prices are unbelievably high for the quality of food and £14 for a medium sized glass of wine is a joke.

Parmigiana di Melanzane starter (£14.00) was initially served cold, sent back, and kindly blitzed in a microwave to a melted mush and then served back to my wife on a clean plate! When she questioned whether it had just been reheated in a microwave she was told it had!!
The main course was Pappardelle al Funghi di Bosco (£24.00) - a tasteless, bland, unseasoned dish of pasta, of which my wife left the majority. The Cotoletta di Vitello Alla Milanese (£30.00) was a simple piece of veal in breadcrumbs covered with a few salad leaves and a couple of tomatoes... terrible.

If I am generous - I’m guessing Marco Corsica and his chefs took the night off, the management went AWOL, and the remaining kitchen staff thought the microwave would be a reasonable alternative. If I am less than generous the place is a simple tourist rip-off joint, where the owners have no consideration for quality and no care beyond making a fast buck ($$).

After declining dessert and asking for the bill, it took a further 20mins to bring it, along with a scoop of ice cream on a decorated plate wishing my wife a Happy Birthday!!

“Mayfair’s Finest Italian Restaurant” says the web.site - you are having a laugh !!!

We had a wonderful evening on Friday at Bocconcino, the ambiance was lovely in the full restaurant and service was superb. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive to top up our drinks. We ordered a delicious selection of starters, pasta followed by the rack of lamb. It was all delicious; compliments to the chef! Overall a thoroughly great and enjoyable meal.

Beautiful restaurant which we found very stylish and comfortable. The staff are a dream and were very knowledgeable with (all) our questions about the menu. Nothing was too much trouble and our food was so tasty. Would highly recommend the tagliolini with crab! And their delicious flatbread to start with rosemary definitely deserves a mention

My wife and I had a wonderful evening here on Monday; we thoroughly enjoyed dinner and stayed in the bar area for a drink afterwards. The staff are very welcoming and kind.

We enjoyed all of our meal, and shared a delicious seabass which was beautifully presented. I also have to mention the cheese board was the star of the meal and the perfect finale.

I love the comfortable ambiance here - An excellent lunch with my daughter after shopping around town. The restaurant is very welcoming and the staff were accommodating. We had a lovely meal sharing a few starters and delicious pizza. I would highly recommend the burrata and beef tartare, and the pizza Bocconcino was an excellent suggestion from their team. The hostess was friendly and helped us with directions when we were leaving, really all the staff went above and beyond! Will be back when I am next in the area

We had heard a lot about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Having no problems with Open Table reservations for a Friday night should have been my first clue. The restaurant itself looks beautiful as you walk in. However once seated it becomes uncomfortable as the tables are too tall for the chairs and therefore everyone looks like a small child trying to reach the table. Add to that the music was very loud and horrible (late 90s early 2000s sappy love songs.) The staff was friendly enough but at one point our wait person put a dirty plate that she had been carrying from another table down in the middle of our cramped and way too tall table so she could better manage to clear our appetizer plates. The wine, while good was completely overpriced at £120 (and one of the cheapest bottles on the menu). The food, too, was overpriced for its mediocre quality (my husband's veal milanese was soaked in oil and flavorless while my tagliatta was 40% fat and gristle.) The evening ended when after declining desert and in the middle of paying the overpriced check the wait staff brought out a birthday dessert (not anyone's birthday at our table.) We will not go back and will not recommend to friends. The only positive was that we found a new wine we like.

Absolutely horrible. Russian private party in upstairs room with booming music ruined the evening. On top of that the food was all from cans. Nothing was fresh. This restaurant is a ridiculously expensive farce pretending to be an Italian restaurant. Honestly the best part of the entire meal was the bread. Enough said. Do not go there and thank me for this good advice.
