A modern Italian pasta restaurant in the heart of Central London.
Bar dining is perfect to watch the kitchen at work and tables are available for groups of 2-6. Our private dining room is perfect for groups of 8-14.
This might just be my favourite restaurant in London - always attentive and lovely staff, amazing pasta and extremely well priced. Can not recommend it highly enough. You have to try the mafalde in any form!
Glorious - brilliant staff, wonderful food and beautiful surroundings. I'll be going back as soon as possible to try out the rest of the menu!
goats cheese and spinach mafalde was a bit poor - everything else excellent !
We ordered 3 types of pasta, 2 of each to share amongst the 4 of us. Would 100% recommend the silk handkerchief, I assume it's one of Bancone's signature pastas. The slow cooked ox cheek and ragu tagliatelle was also delicious but not our favourite. We also ordered a native lobster bucatini, which we felt was mediocre or rather disappointing. Overall, food was at a high quality and 6 pastas came down to £20pp which was a very reasonable price.
Awesome place, awesome pasta! The PDR upstairs is great for an intimate, family-style meal:) highly recommend!
I had a really good time having lunch with my husband at Bancone. Food is very good, we ordered 3 starters and 2 mains and all the dishes were great. Wine list and the service also spot on. Definitely will come back.
The food was utterly fantastic and the atmosphere oozed Friday night London. However, the service was absolutely awful. Our waiter reached new parallels of rudeness, upon ordering a £31 bottle of Rose we were called classless to have ordered said colour of wine. Whilst I don't necessarily disagree the rose may not have been the best pairing I completely object to have such unsolicited and unasked for opinions from the waiter. Then upon choosing our main meal and taking a recommendation he had suggested we were again looked down upon as though we were ordering too much. Quite frankly as two women in their 30s who had eaten at the establishment before I can make that decision myself.
Loved the food. Great value for what we had and service was excellent. Will definitely come back.
Our waiter was excellent. Food always fantastic.
1st bits after reading a Jay Raynor review and was t in the slightest disappointed. Wonderful in every way, will 100% be going again!
Excellent, as usual. Just don’t change a thing, you’re ruling London! @iamfeelingfood
Loved this place. Will be back
We were dining pre-theatre so really appreciated the prompt and friendly service. We’ll definitely return - we didn’t have time to make the most of the starters this time and would like to rectify that.
We'll be back! We had a lovely evening.
Best pasta in London. Period.
Fantastic place! Can’t fault anything. Best pasta I’ve had in a long time and great atmosphere
Excellent meal at a reasonable price.
We very much enjoyed our dinner. Our waiter and the sommelier were a joy. I have already purchased a case of the Italian wine we shared to be shipped over! We’ll be back. My only critical point is the advanced credit card requirement, it has resulted in me not booking on a couple of occasions.
Excellent food with great atmosphere
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Recommended to friends and family, one of which has already booked a table!
As an Italian, he pasta was perfect
Everything I want from Italian eatery - beautiful food in buzzy, friendly atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
We had to flag someone down to order or get the bill, we never got the bill and had to get up to pay at the front instead.
