A word from Boca Pizzeria
Boca Pizzeria is an Italian inspired Pizzeria utilizing the abundance of Northern California's seasonal ingredients, while showcasing local micro breweries and wine country's boutique varietals. Boca Pizzeria has always been our little neighborhood gem we had in mind for years, where we can dine with our friends, family and loved ones.
Our pizzas are authentic Neapolitan style certified by "Verace Pizza Napolitana" Each pizza, which cooks for no more than 2 minutes in a 900 degree Italian wood burning oven, is made from double milled 00 Caputo flour. Our sauce is made of the finest San Marzano tomatoes imported from Italy. We make house-made mozzarella cheese daily.
We support local farmers in an effort to bring you the freshest ingredients.

Diner Reviews
  • "Calzone - good ingredients, all chicken breast, mushrooms, etc. Flavorful. The dough was just OK. Flatbread wrap - same, good ingredients and flavorful Caesar salad - I don't like having to cut my lettuce, esp when it's $10! It came with maybe 8 full leaves of Romain coated with dressing (which was a creamy dressing that maybe came from a bottle.) Def not what I expected, and def smaaal. Atmosphere - the place is cavernous, very loud, amplified by very loud piped in music. Very hard to hear conversations across the table. Service - Adequate, but not great. We had to ask for more tea and water."

  • "We come here alot. The food is always delicious. The food was served way too fast. We were only in the restaurant for a total of 40 minutes which included a beer at the bar--too fast for me. This is not the first time this has happened, but if you want at little more out of your dining experience, wait to order until you are REALLY ready to eat. The restaurant was empty except one table finishing when we left at 9:00. We also need to be better about letting the servers know that we are not in a hurry, even though this night, I am not sure it would have mattered. I hope the staff will remember that the goal is to not end the night as fast as you can, but to have the customers come back for a dinner out."

  • "Boca Steak House now Boca Tavern has been a staple for my family and was hesitant about going to a Pizzeria, however, with the same owner, we figured we would give it a shot. We are now excited to return there for many more great dining experiences, with Great Food and Fabulous Service! The Pizza was done to perfection as well as the dinners we all enjoyed! Desserts were also a bonus!!"

  • "This is one of my favorite places to grab a glass of wine and appetizer/light dinner with a friend. Its always comfortable, casual, friendly with great food and a reasonable wine list. In the summer time, the outdoor space is really lovely."

  • "The best pizza ever but several other delicious entrees are available. The salmon entree is very good. Some in our group enjoyed the short ribs, but they didn't come with an veggies only mashed potatoes. Good wine list and casual atmosphere."

  • "I've been to Boca many times. The pizza/food is really good but the service we received this last time was not. We had a reservation for Sat and requested to sit outside as it was a nice evening. The side patio was empty/not yet open & there were several 2-tops & one 4-top (supposedly 'reserved') in the front patio area open. The staff seemed totally dismissive & unconcerned about our request. If it had been busy and full, we would have understood. However, it was still early and the 4-top (and 2-tops) out front remained empty for at least another 45 mins, by which time, the side patio was open & at least one other 4-top in front was available to accomodate that 'reservation'. In addition, the service we experienced was slow overall."

  • "We ate outside on a warm night and had a wonderful dinner. Their pizza has the thin crispy crust, just like in Italy. Try the Farmers Pizza...I know, a fried egg on a pizza sounds strange, but you have to try it. Amazing! And the beet salad is incredible!!"

  • "Something for everybody from omnivore to finicky. Great service; even made me an iced coffee and refilled it. She brought extra glass of ice without being asked. Everyone in our party raved about the food. We selected from every section of the menu- all beautifully seasoned and delicious. "

  • "We had a reservation for five at 5:30 PM and we were taken to our table without delay. Our server was excellent! The food was very yummy (the braised short-ribs are to die-for!) And the desserts--wow! Will definitely be back to Boca Pizzeria in the future. "

  • "My husband and I love Boca Pizzeria in Novato, and we go here all the time. The food is very good (although it's a fairly small menu if you can't eat pizza or pasta -- there are only a couple of gluten-free items). The service is always excellent. And we can bring the kids here without bothering anyone. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Never thought their short ribs would be that excellent... I actually don't like their pizza so much (even though they are pizzeria), but their entrees, salads and sandwiches are really good. Can't stop going back! "

  • "Food overall was very yummy (chocolate decadence dessert was a little dry, per my husband) but the flies are extremely annoying. It's gotten so that I ask for extra napkins as soon as we sit down, to cover our food and drinks. Maybe some fly sticky strips way up in the ceiling would help?"

  • "This place, which was always crowded, was so empty when we arrived that we should have had a clue something had changed. Terrible service, obviously now run by amateurs--we ordered our drinks and appetizers which came relatively quickly. We then ordered our salads and entrees which arrived before we were half way through our starters. Sent the entrees back because we didn't go there to rush through dinner. When they did serve the entrees they were terrible --reheated but cold. If I wanted reheated pizza I would have done take out! We sent the pizza back--it was inedible. I NEVER send food back but this was so disappointing. None of the food was as good as it used to be. Too bad. We used to go there frequently but will not return."

  • "We met family here (with kids) for a quick bite the other night. The place was packed on a Thursday night. Some of the dish's we ordered were the Organic Roasted Beets with organic baby mixed greens, roasted hazelnuts & sheep's feta with a creamy citrus dressing ($10) This salad was very fresh and flavorful. The Chicken Piccata, chicken breast with lemon caper butter sauce, mashed potatoes & seasonal vegetables ($17) we had asked for no potatoes (no problem), this dish was good and the vegetables fresh. Their pizza is an Authentic Neapolitan Style, made in a wood fired oven. Roasted Mushroom Pizza with Fontina, thyme and Taleggio Cheese ($15) The kids said it was fantastic and would order it again. If you're in Novato, this is quick & easy."

  • "An overall okay place to dine. We dined mid-day and it was quiet. We sat in the bar booth area and service was okay... not especially attentive. I will not be rushing back to dine there."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The food and service was good. However, just as a suggestion......if you have a kids menu (which Boca does), you should also provide the kids with a drawing and crayons to keep them occupied. Instead, I spent my entire meal watching kids run around outside and in the outdoor dining area. Makes the ambience a bit chaotic."

  • "This is a great family place with a good atmosphere that borders on fine dining. The menu offer more than good pizza so the parents can indulge a bit. Prices are low to moderate again making it attractive to families. There is a full bar and good service."

  • "With several ordinary pizza joints, Marin was in dire need of a more gourmet option for pizza. A place where you could get more authentic Neapolitan pies, and Boca fits the bill. Nice thin crusts (though I could even go for a little thinner), fresh toppings, good flavors - I'll be back."

  • "Cons: noise level really got up there, but it was Friday night. Waiter was nice and attentive, but tried to take away our plates before we were done. Think he wanted us to move faster. Pros: Our Open Table reservation was waiting, and they seated us right away, in front of a few groups begging to get an unreserved table. Beet salad and the salad with the lemon/mint dressing are both remarkable. Roasted artichoke: extremely tasty. Fennel Sausage pizza is awesomely good, better than the salami pizza by far. Pumpkin budino dessert was delish. We let the young people at our table order the wine, and they chose by the label name, it wasn't great. All in all, food is very good here, just don't order the "Wild Thing" wine."

  • "Service was great, from the hostess to the waiters. The wait staff were very accommodating.We all had different pizzas & shared a salad. Everything came to the table quickly, the presentation was nice on everything.The food was good. The pizzas were tasty but they were small. An individual pizza (about 6") was approximately $15 each. That price for that size pizza needed something to justify it, like ingredients, flavor etc & it did not. The crust was thin & nice but very average in taste. The chicken salad was tasty but also just not outstanding for the price. Overall, it was a nice experience but I found nothing there that would encourage me to come back or to recommend it to others with so many other nice restaurants to try in Novato.."

  • "The reason I come here are the Neapolitan Pizzas, BUT this time they were utterly disappointing! None of the crust had the trademark puffiness of a Neapolitan. They were rather flat and flaccid. The Margherita Pizza was slathered with cheese that resembled the generic "cheese pizza" from most chain pizza restaurants designed to caters to finicky children who refuses to be caught dead munching on a topping that slightly resembles a vegetable. The Sausage-pepperoni Pizza was not any better, resembling a one made at a Pizza Hut as opposed to a "Certified" Napolitana Pizzeria. At least the appetizers of the burrata and the flatbread did not disappoint."

We are particularly fond of the Rustico salad that my husband and I share. Other favorites are the pizza and the short ribs. Cheese cake and banana pudding for dessert. Yum!"
