Mediterranean | Wellesley, Boston Suburbs

I've been to Bocado's a few times for lunch and it has always been good. The menu has interesting options and the food is great. Some of the portions are on the smaller side if you have a big appetite, but for most they are fine. Great ambience and very friendly service. Haven't been there for dinner but would certainly give it a try. Totally recommend! More

Italian | Wellesley, Boston Suburbs

We met friends for lunch about 4 pm on a Tuesday. It was not busy. Parking is horrendous in that area, but they do have valet parking, even at lunch. We were greeted and seated, gracious hosts. Service was impeccable. Break basket is fabulous. One friend had the kale salad with side of chicken, excellent. Someone had the meatball appetizer, excellent. I had fig pizza, which would have been excellent if there had been a full pizza, but the fig/toppings only covered 3/4 of the pizza; they did not put it even near the edges, so there was about an inch or more all around the edge of the pizza that had nothing on it and it was dry and cracked. What part did have topping was fabulous; I probably should have sent it back for a full pizza. More

Fusion / Eclectic | Wellesley, Boston Suburbs

Wow! Chris was our server and he was attentive, fun and knowledgeable. The food was fabulous! The Brussel Sprouts were the best I've ever had and all the seafood was fresh and yummy. We shared lots of small plates and were happy with everything. The liquor menu was limited though; 3 liquors I like were not available nor do they offer ice tea ( I had to make my own). Otherwise no complaints and we will be back. More
