Ital­ian magic

Where London - - Dining -

Al­though Bocca di Lupo is on a quiet Soho street, once in­side you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into an os­te­ria in an Ital­ian pi­azza. Book ahead as it’s packed – but you might get lucky and be seated at the counter. The restau­rant has been cham­pi­oning Ital­ian wine and cui­sine since it opened in 2008. This year, cer­tain months have been se­lected for ‘re­gional takeovers’, in­spired by the cui­sine of Italy’s 20 re­gions. This month, all eyes are on Si­cily, so ex­pect risotto with al­monds, and pac­cheri (pasta tubes) with au­bergine, sword­fish and mint. Our tip? Choose small shar­ing plates so you can sam­ple more flavours – al­though which­ever dish you try, you won’t go wrong. 12 Archer St, W1D 7BB. www.boc­ T: 020-7734 2223. D7.
