Gareth Saywell named head chef of Bocca di Lupo

Gareth Saywell has been appointed as the head chef of Bocca di Lupo in London's Soho.

Starting next month, Gareth Saywell will lead the culinary team at the Italian trattoria Bocca di Lupo in London's Soho. Notably, he previously served as the sous chef at the restaurant from 2015 to 2018.

Gareth Saywell takes over the role from Jake Simpson, who was recently appointed as the head chef of the Rectory in Wiltshire earlier this week.

Before returning to the restaurant, originally founded by Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo in 2008, Gareth Saywell held the position of head chef at Orasay in London's Notting Hill. His most recent culinary experience was at the Light Bar in London's Shoreditch.

He said: 'I'm delighted to be returning to Bocca di Lupo as head chef after a few years away. We'll continue to draw on our favourite dishes from across Italy, made with the best produce we can get our hands on. I can't wait to start working with Jacob and his fantastic team once again.'

Kenedy added: 'I'm really pleased to welcome Gareth back to the pass at Bocca di Lupo. His love and knowledge of Italian cooking shines through in each and every dish he cooks, and I'm looking forward to eating his food again.'
