Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed the restaurant décor and ambiance. The noise level was a bit high, but it was Friday night, so that was expected. The waiter was very attentive and gave excellent service. The appetizers were great! We enjoyed the warm olives with bread and the bruschetta varieties we tried were all very good. The wine & beer selection was good and prices were reasonable during happy hour from 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm. The entrées were marginal - items were over priced for the portion size and quality. Our entrée was overcooked and dry. Our dining companions agreed. They were not impressed with their entrees either. I would recommend this place for happy hour & appetizers, but not for dinner."

  • "Finding a lunch hot spot where I can both talk and hear is a challenge, this place was perfect in a lot of ways. The food was very good, service was excellent and the noise level was just right, I could converse and be heard and not hear the next table. Great balance!"

  • "I frequent this place often; it's close by, and always consistently good. Food, service, and happy hour wine prices; how can you beat it?"

  • "La Bocca was a great experience all around. The food was over the top, the atmosphere was very pleasant, and our server attentive. We were a group of 7 and were all very pleased. An enjoyable experience all around."

  • "We rarely get past appetizers, but have yet to pick an item we didn't love. Nice ambiance, maybe a little loud, but quieted down quickly. We really enjoy this place and everyone we bring tends to go back on their own... So we must not be alone in thinking it is good."

  • "This place is right across the street from my office and came highly recommended. The bruschetta planks and pizzas were AWESOME!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Good happy hour pricing on wines. Great food, although I wish they would also discount at least some of their food items during happy hour."

  • "This place is decent. It was pretty busy for a Saturday night around 830 PM. Good wine selection. If unsure of what to get, they have a sommelier, as least on Sat night, who has very friendly and helpful. The portions are decent on the apps and pizzas. The pizzas were tasty, but one of the two we ordered had burnt crust on half the pie. The apps are definitely shareable and a decent portion, even for four people, so if you start with one, you might want to wait to see if you're still hungry for more. Service was great. Atmosphere is fun, energetic..may be a bit loud for some since it's a small space. We'll definitely be eating and drinking here again."

  • "Just crazy that they had both doors wide open when it was 106 degrees outside. Air conditioning get getting turned off until we complained that it was too hot. Turned back on, then off, happened about 4 times while we were there. Insane."

  • "Typically love this place, but unfortunately, the restaurant wreaked. The waitress said it was the smell of sewage and an attempt to mask it with garlic. The food was delicious, but the smell in there made me lose my appetite. "

  • "The pizza was wonderful. The crust was cooked to perfection. It was crispy wood fired goodness with just enough soft chew."

  • "Atmosphere was great and tasty bruschetta and pizza. Felt like there was limited seating for a party of 5 despite making a reservation. With the reservation they offered us a communal table or seats outside with no table. This was eventually remedied and we were seated in a booth. Great wine list and a knowledgable sommelier. The waitress was nice, but it took a long time to receive non food items needed at the table. She didn't come back to check on us much. Overall our group enjoyed the food and wine and would definitely return. "

  • "Completely felt like a VIP all night. My husband and I loved the food, the wines & the great service. It did get loud a little later in the evening when things picked up but it was a very fun atmosphere! I'm brining the work group by this week for a happy hour. So you know I loved it! Thank you to Mark and Liz!!"

  • "We had a bartender as our server and the manager brought out the food - very disjointed. Bruschetta was tasty but both pastas we ordered were sticky in texture and the pizza was almost burnt on the bottom. Drinks were good."

Highly recommended. I will be going back and forth between La Bocca and it's sister location across the street, Modern Margarita! Cheers!"

  • "Myself, my wife and 2 friend (male and female) were at your Soft Opening on Sunday night with a 6:30 reservation. We were cordially greeted by your front desk staff and promptly seated at a table for 4 near the patio but still inside the restaurant. The patio doors were open and the gas heaters were all going which provided for a nice ambiance. We were told by our server that were were only allowed to order food that was limited to what was printed on a card on the table. We ordered 1 of each of the 4 items offered on the card. We found the food delicious and flavorful as well as the desserts. Overall we all had a great experience."

  • "The food was very good. The service was very poor. Our order was taken before two other tables. The other tables received their drinks and appetizers before we received our drinks and our drink order was incorrect. Both of the other tables received their food and was almost done before we received our appetizers. We then received our pizza and in the middle of our pizza finally received our salad. I think we received our food only because someone else kept walking by our table and was trying to figure out why we didn't have food. I will go back for lunch once the restaurant has been open for a while to see if the services has improved. If not, it will be the last time. The Noise Level was actually WAY TO LOUD."

  • "I was there on their soft opening and the facility was not quite completely set up but still beautiful. The food was very good, presented well. Love the ambience and plan to visit there again in the future. I would definitely make this a date night spot. They do not have any TVs which my be an issue with some people."
