Bocce Ratings and Reviews
Over the last couple of years, my family and I have enjoyed dinners at Bocce very much. I reviewed our previous dinner on March 5, which was spectacular. We decided to have a late night Sunday dinner, March 19 at around 10pm. Once again dinner was absolutely spectacular ---actually flawless and we so enjoyed our meal with Emiliano serving us. We enjoyed Tallegio (a soft nice cheese) with honey and walnuts as a starter while we shared the arugula salad and beet salad. We each had a slice of the mushroom pizza which was just yummy. Then we each had a small helping of taglietelle (pasta with meat sauce) which was better than ever and a rigatoni platter as well. Then after these small decilious tastes, Emiliano served the branzino, a whole fish with clams and mussels as garnishments. In addition, we ordered a special --- a porterhouse steak, which was carved for us by the maitre d -- separating the filet mignon and strip steak. All six of us shared and smacked our lips as the meat was very tender, perfectly cooked and amazingly seasoned. Absolutely perfection. I had to put my weight loss program on hold for dessert when an incredible nutella pizza, cheesecake, and the Bocce Bombe (similar to sugar powdered doughnut centers with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces ....OMG!!! I believe that life is very short ...and next time I may just start with desserts first!! LOL.
I've written many of these reviews because my family and I love Bocce, their team and executive manager Dana. We feel so at home in this special cozy and casual restaurant. But what I really want to share with those who read my review is that Sunday nights at Bocce is a wonderful time to enjoy an amazing meal there. It's quiet...the staff is very, very attentive and the food is out of this world. Take it from a foodie and a family with particular tastes...Bocce is one of the best. Hey, let's fill up the restaurant next Sunday night. Cya there!!
The food was salty. The service was incredibly slow even though it was a relatively calm night. I was embarrassed that I'd recommend it to friends and brought them here. My husband and I definitely won't be back. I was so hopeful for at least decent food and service. Coffee was good, though...probably the only bright side.
I have been to Bocce a couple of times. The first time it was a vibrant bar scene, great food and great ambience. The food is still great, but the crowd seems to have moved somewhere else. Last times I've been here the place is empty and cold. Should work to attract people.
Last night at Bocce was the most extraordinary overall dining experience our family of six has had in years despite eating at some of the best restaurants in south Florida. We started with the arugula salad and beet salad along with tallegio cheese, honey and walnuts all of which were just perfect. Then two pastas--tagliatelle and fruiti di mare were perfectly prepared and presented. The pastas were augmented by margarita and mushroom pizzas, followed by the mahi mahi special and the branzino di furno fish entrees which were delicious. Dessert for our 18 year old grandson's birthday was the best and quite different tiramisu ever, nutella pizza, the Bocce Bomb, and an assortment of delicate pastries in addition to the staff singing Happy Birthday. If the food wasn't enough to make this the best culinary experience in many years, our server Emiliano, was by far, the most attentive, pleasant and charming Italiano, and skilled as he served with perfect portions of every dish to each of our party of six. Bocce was great when we dined there before, but a new head chef, and more experienced and attentive servers, makes Bocce one of the best meals in all of south Florida all the while in a comfortable casual family-like atmosphere with Bocelli's music in the background. Last night was unforgettable. Don't miss this one!!
This was a return visit for us and we were not very happy. The service was mediocre, and the food was tasty, but the entrees came out only warm, nothing was hot and then finding a waiter to help was pretty impossible.
The manager seemed very busy entertaining, but nobody really came by to ask if things were OK, or were we satisfied, and it was also a very long meal for something that should have been of average length.
An eternity later, we were finally to get our waiter to bring the check.
Not sure we will hurry back.
First time for Sunday Brunch and it was a great experience. Marcelo the manager took pride in making sure our experience was excellent. The antipasto and dolce bar were phenomenal. A big thumbs up and high recommendation for those of you who are looking for a fun Sunday Brunch!
We really had a great time with our 5 year old. The open air atmosphere allowed us to enjoy midtown and the restaurant interior was warm and inviting. The staff made us feel like part of their italian family! Our son got to watch the pizza being made in the kitchen... and the food!! The food reminded me of being back in Italy. Thank you Bocce for the wonderful evening!!
Me and my wife decided to go out for some comfort food, Italian. What we found was less than we imagined, her spaghetti with meat sauce, really had no meat and my Lasagna was two noodle high with meat in the middle with cheese on top.
This was not what we expected from Bocce.
