Saturday evening at Bocca Di Lupo Italian Restaurant is a good way to enjoy the weekend in vibrant Soho. Situated on Archer Street this authentic Italian restaurant is a place I go to time and time again, it is consistently good and not always easy to get a space at the bar. To start the evening my friend and I had a glass of Franciacorta Rosé Flamingo Monte Rossa and Franciacorta Cuvée Royale Montenisa Marchesi Antinori. This was followed by a delicious starter of buffalo mozzarella with merinda tomato and Artichoke a la giudia.
The crowd and staff and Bocca Di Lupo never disappoint, always friendly, always accommodating and extremely helpful, there is always an effervescent buzz at this restaurant.
For the main courses, we shared the spaghetti, potato green beans, wild garlic pesto and tomato followed by pappardelle pasta, morels, broad beans & asparagus with a side dish of smoked ricotta peas in their pods.
All the flavours of these dishes compliment each other beautifully, lots of harmonious notes accompanied with carefully chosen wines. The chefs here know how to hit your ‘sweet spot’ when it comes to flavours. Although everything looks faultless as they prepare each meal in front of you, the dedication and professional expertise that goes on behind the scenes is paramount to the success of this wonderful restaurant.
For dessert, we had the Torta Caprese – chocolate, almond & limoncello cake, this melts in your mouth and is just the right amount (and not too sweet) finale to end the evening on a zingy vibe.
