Bocca di Lupo opened in November 2008 and has since received various awards and accolades for its stripped-down, honest regional Italian cuisine. Despite the buzzy feel and glamorous surroundings, it is very much a family business, a small and humble trattoria at heart. Bocca di Lupo specialises in the obscure and the delicious highlights of food and wine from all across Italy's twenty regions. If they can make something in-house, they do - gelati, breads, sausages, salame, pickles, mostarda, and pasta of course - the rest is carefully sourced from Italy. If you're hosting a private party or function the Remus Room is the ideal setting - warm and sumptuous with a choice of seasonal feasting menus. The menus are changed almost every day - sometimes twice a day - and keep up with the changing seasons. The wines all say 'Salute!' (To your health!) and are sourced with a great deal of care and attention. As with the food, on offer are familiar favourites and obscure gems. All the wines are Italian, each considered to be a prime example of its type, and each offering great value. The list is not exactly short, but Italy is home to over 500 varieties of grape.

I went here with a friend a few weeks ago to celebrate a special birthday. We sat at the bar to dine and it was wonderful - the buzzy atmosphere, the lovely attentive service, and of course the food! The focus is on sharing and you can choose small or large portions of most dishes. The menu is authentic regional Italian cuisine that changes with the seasons - and even on a daily basis! Well worth a trip and another place worth trying is their ice-cream store across the road - Gelupo. I'll definitely go back again.
