I dine at Boca Pizzeria a couple of times or more a week. I enjoy the varied menu, outside dining, excellent service/staff and beer-on-tap. I frequently take family and friends to Boca also recommend it highly.

I usually love the food here -- and always look forward to the pizza -- however this visit
the pizza was not the usual fresh tasting -- it arrived just luke warm, and the sauce was
tasteless as well as the toppings. Really lacking this time. Disappointing!

The service was very good - and love to sit outside.

This is a great stop for very authentic pizza. The atmosphere is casual but elegant. The pizza is unique-thick with generous toppings. Service is good.

We go to this place regularly and the food is always predictably good. This time, the food was less than mediocre. They managed to destroy my favorites like short ribs pasta and chicken piccata. Seems like they got a new cook instead of the old chef.
Sorry!

Tried a pizza, of course and was disappointed. The topping was tasty enough after you added some hot red pepper flakes, but the crust was a nightmare. You needed a table saw to cut through the crust and that included the base as well as the thicker edges. I have eaten a lot of pizza in my day and this crust needed a total revamping. Might return but not order the pizza.

Boca is one of our favorite places. It's pretty consistent and great to have in the neighborhood. This particular evening our entrees were excellent. Salmon without the potatoes and extra veggies and the delicious 1/2 chicken. We didn't have pizza this night, but Boca's pizza is excellent!

The tables are a bit close so it can't be helped that some people "share" louder than others. It was tolerable, however. I should also remember not to be seated close to the entry door on cold, windy nights! Again, tolerable. If these two "complaints" had worsened, we would have asked to be moved.

Wood-fired crust, high-end ingredients. Great thin-crust east coast style pizza. The salads are outstanding, and a great dessert menu. Pastas are good.

We like the location and have always enjoyed the food especially the pizza. But they have changed the food and we all felt it was not up to par to being here before and that is the same experience for the last three visits. Not sure I am willing to spend the money and give it another opportunity.

Cozy location was built smartly with lots of re-purposed wood, rustic steel, hip/industrial light fixtures. The spirit of the place is very positive with a smart, young staff. They know their foods and wines well too! This is one of the few restaurants where you could ask the staff about a wine and they would actually be able to describe the wine! In addition to the crafted pizza, they have some protein and pasta dishes for those who don't want pizza. When the weather is nice, they have great outdoor seating. Oh yeah, the salads are fabulous too. I loved my rustico salad- so green, flavorful, and fresh. Lots of locals come here frequently and add to the positive, energetic, and welcome feel.
