Bocca di Lupo is ‘food-lovers' restaurant of the moment', says critic

Guy Dimond at Time Out believes Italian restaurant Bocca di Lupo is worthy of a place in the publication's Top 50 London Restaurants list, describing it as "the food-lovers' restaurant of the moment".

Despite the tables being packed in and the service sometimes slow, Dimond implores diners to "go if you want really good Italian food at a fair price."

Bloomberg's Richard Vines finds "back to British" at the Albion, the casual restaurant forming part of Terrance Conran's Shoreditch hotel the Boundary (which has its own eponymous fine-dining restaurant on site as well), with the puddings a particular highlight.

Moving on to the Boundary restaurant itself, which is in the basement at the site, Vines concludes that the prices are reasonable for that level of dining and says "the Boundary Looks fabulous", proving that Conran at 77 hasn't lost his touch when it comes to design.
