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.

Food was lovely. Would have been nice to have a bit of a gap between entree and main meal. Plates were cleared and next meal places in front of you.

Came here on recommendation of a good friend and has to be said; it was tremendous! Shared a few starters and had delicious pizza after. Lovely bottle of Chardonnay which was adviced by our host. Only thing that was really annoying me was that the knifes of all of us werent sharp at all. I would def come again and would recommend it to friends.

Food was very reasonable but did not match the price. The restaurant itself is very nicely done and only let down by an absolutely bizarre style of service and management which means that although there seems to be a plentiful supply of staff, you have to spend a few minutes every time you need attention and listen to the chorus of other diners shouting things like "am I going to get any dinner" across the restaurant.

The restaurant toilets and their habit of storing filthy dishes along the path to get to the toilets also adds to the general feeling that this is not quite at home in Mayfair and particularly not Berkeley street.

Food was great, but the restaurant was let down by the service. The waiters were annoyingly obsessive in filling up our water glasses (desperate to make us buy more fizzy water), to the extent that at one point one glass was knocked over. Food was not served at the same time, with a salad arriving almost 5 minutes after the hot food was delivered.

This is a beautiful restaurant. However, the food and service was quite disappointing.

When we entered the building and we were taken to our seats, we asked if there was a cloakroom for coats and we were told to walk back to the entrance to hand them over. We weren't asked at the door if we would like to use the cloakroom and the staff didn't offer to take our coats for us at the table. Not what you expect of a place like this. I also had to ask multiple times for more drinks.

The quality of the food was good but I would have expected better for the price paid. I have had better seafood risotto in places half the price.

The food was out of this world, some of the best I have ever eaten. Although lunch for 3 was fairly expensive that was the groups choice as we picked an excellent bottle of wine!!

Overall very good place to eat.

Thank you

Good location in between Piccadilly and Berkeley Square, Bocconcino has a great layout with the large area downstairs (viewable from the ground floor entrance) more suited to large groups with the tucked-away ground floor area more suited to smaller groups and small tables. The service was very good, great ambience. Just one thing - this was my second visit and this time my guest had a chair and I sat on the banquette which was very low in comparison to the table heights. I'm relatively tall (5'7") but I still needed to sit on 2 cushions to bring me up to the right height for dining.

If you like the food at Cecconis- you’ll like this - the service isn’t as good (not is the people watching) but a great Italian which is family friendly for a Sunday afternoon or a little more grown up for midweek - would go again

Sure the service can be improved

Booked for my husband birthday.

Wasn’t impressed. My pasta was too chewy and husband rack of lamb was two very small lamb chops.

We also weren’t advised of specials.

My husband was presented with ice with a sparkler init and waiter sang. He was very embarrassed and ask them to stop singing.

Overall. Not great value and service from wait staff not great.

Certainly not an Italian style - more of a fast food / tourist / commercial type. Even bread has become a problem. Horrible speaker over our head. Definitely overcharged for that ambiance / service. Regret that we ve chosen that restaurant. Tonite we wnt to Cecconi's - exact an Italian restaurant.

Food was outstanding, however service was very poor. I was seated at lounge area so I can wait for my friend, but nobody came to me to offer a drink. I had to look for waiter attention, to be able order a drink while waiting for my friend. Once we were seated at the table to have a dinner, once again we had to ask for a waiter as we were left with menus for quite a while. I’ve ordered pasta with truffles, which was on the menu for 35 GBP, but waiteress advises that white is nicer, however she forgot to mention that it will cost 55 GBP not 35 as the one I selected from the menu. Nobody did a check back on the table if food was ok. It was disappointing experience.

At one of the best streets for dining in London you would expect a lot more. Terrible service and not more than ok food for its price.
After the dissapointing night we asked them to get us a cab since it was raining but they did not even try to help us.
Will definitely not go there again!

Very expensive for what you get which is fairly moderate Italian cooking that many other restaurants in London provide at a much keener price . The scallops were slightly over salted and the seafood linguine was a bit oily - no memorable cooking here. It all seemed a bit tired and the mark ups on the wine list were just greedy.
