Can we swear? Probably best to leave it. This was a spectacular experience, from start to finish. Wonderfully helpful staff, really down-to-earth and friendly, and excellent recommendations for both the wine and pasta. Most importantly, the food is genuinely brilliant, and it's great to watch the chefs at work. We hope they continue to do well here, and are really looking forward to going back.

Dear Sir, I was at the restaurant on Saturday 18th Aug. The main was ox tail ragu with papardelle. Absolutely delightful; the pasta was tender and delicious not to speak about the ragu. I had a wonderful bottle of wine from Tuscany. Service is outstanding and sitting/lighting just perfect. The only minor detail is that music was on the loud side given that the acustics are not great as the ceiling is high and does interfere with conversation. A fantastic place. Antonio Ruiz

Excellent food, fantastic service and loved watching the chefs at work at the bar. A great central London challenger to London Bridge's Padella!

Excellent food and wine. Service a little too much clearing away of glasses etc unnecessarily which interrupted conversation. Overall fantastic though and will definitely come back.

Great place for fresh pasta in the heart of Central London! Amazing food. To note, if you are going for a pre-theatre meal - The restaurant doesn't open until 5:30 and they tend to get busy by 6-6:30 so you might be pressed for time if trying to fit in a full 3 courses. I didn't manage to fit in dessert because they were busy and the kitchen wasn't able to guarantee that I would get my dessert in time before I had to rush off to my show.

I eat out in London a a lot and I never leave reviews. This time is different. The food and service at bancone were out of this world. I will be telling everyone about this gem of a restaurant. Keep doing what you’re doing! I’ll be back!

The best Italian I’ve visited in London and the gluten free pasta tastes great. The food is like little plates of art that taste amazing.
