The blonde hostess on entrance was incredibly rude and disinterested. When my fiance rang to say we were running ten minutes late she sighed and said well you can come but I dont know what we can do. We arrived and were very apologetic and suggested we sat at the bar she said no it was full, we suggested going somewhere for a drink and she said no she would give our table away. Another hostess stepped in and was very helpful and took us to stand at the bar. The waiting staff were brilliant and the food was very good - although the tempura prawn and spinach were over salted. Overall a good meal but for the money there are better restaurants where the whole experience makes you want to return.

Too much noise in the restaurant. Food was over cooked. No taste at all!

Will not recommend to anyone.

Went with my Girlfriend for our Anniversary and the ambience, layout and first impressions was very good.

Service was on point and the food was very good .....the only constructive feedback I could give was that we were disappointed we were charged for bread at the table given the prices and there was no ice offered with the water at the table but these were very minor niggles that did not overshadow a lovely long lunch celebrating our special day .....thank you!!!

Excellent spot for client entertainment. Staff respect privacy and are accommodating. Great wine list with a selection of choice from Italian regions and further across the World. Rare to find such a well curated menu. Compliments to the sommeliere. Highly recommend

Vibrant restaurant with relaxed atmosphere. Classic Italian menu - dishes well cooked, generous portions and well presented. Burrata cheese is excellent, as is calamari and tuna tartare. Pasta, pizza, steaks and fish in wide variety on the menu and the staff are happy to help with allergen information

Overall a very enjoyable dining experience. Their menu has a good choice and Bocconcino is becoming a regular spot for me. I recommend to many colleagues and had excellent feedback from them as well. Rare to find a consistently good restaurant in Mayfair such as this. Traditional Italian restaurant with a few updates and good selection of crudi from the kitchen. Lovely fish display with fresh produce you can really taste the flavours from.

Second visit to Bocconcino and just as good as the first. Rare to find consistency so I was very impressed. The calamari is delicious with a fresh, homemade taste and not too much batter. Followed this with a crispy pizza - generous toppings of bresaola, rocket and parmesan. Really enjoyable meal. I highly recommend

Delicious Italian menu with great steak and fish selection. Catch of the day is very nice - seabream - and filleted tableside which is a great bit of theatre. Friendly service and very professional; felt well looked after and attended to.
Wine selection is extensive full of many Italian varieties and rest of the world. Can't resist a French White. Highly recommend

Rather superb restaurant - fresh ingredients well cooked and well presented. Knowledgable staff who were very aware of allergens of dishes and helpful with recommendations. Nice start to the meal with some warm foccacia. The crab tagliolini was a very generous portion size and cooked perfectly. I will return for this alone.

This was my first time to at Bocconcino with my family. It was more than pleasant, starting with the welcoming staff who were very helpful with my grandmother who was on a wheelchair.
The food was great and the portions were generous. My favourite dish was the lobster linguini.

I would definitely come back and recommend it!

Pre theatre dinner at 5.30 so we were the only ones in the restaurant. Enabled us to get served quickly. Food was tasty. Chair seats are very low in relation to table, wished I was a bit taller! Nice double height ceiling effect.

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!

Pasta dish was very expensive at £35.00 as it was a normal tasing pasta dish with truffle. Maybe need to find new suppliers for the truffle.

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.
