Italian
With over a decade in business, Bocca Cucina & Bar is one of New York City’s top rated Italian restaurants in the Gramercy district. The space is bright and modern, marked by indigo blue leather banquettes and industrial-chic lighting. Large and upgraded bar area with exquisite marble countertops overseeing the dining room, offering an imaginative cocktail menu that seamlessly complements the all-Italian wine list seldom found anywhere else. International chef James Corona, a Batali and Bouley alum approaches Italian cuisine with a creative and modern edge to deliver soulful creations, inspired by Italian tradition and artfully plated dishes that stimulate the mind as much as the senses. Bocca takes a minimalist approach to the menu, respecting the intrinsic natural flavors of premiere local and Italian-imported products. Bocca highlights iconic Roman classics such as tonnarelli cacio e pepe and pappardelle al ragu di agnello.

We went to Bocca for "limited capacity indoors" dinner. Unfortunately it was quite a disappointing experience.

Environment: It seemed much more than 25% capacity and it didn't feel safe.

Food: The salmon was nice. The special-of-the-day truffle risotto was trash. They forgot the truffle(!) then the waiter shaved truffle on top of it but it had zero taste. An utter waste.

Drinks: I tried one of the cocktails. It was alright.

Service was the only decent part. Not 5-star but definitely good.

Conclusion: For half the price, I would have given 4 stars. For the price, 2.5 stars are generous.

No intention of going back.

Hi Chris, thank you for your feedback, they are very important to us and we appreciate them. First off, I'm sorry to hear about your negative experience however we would like to point a couple of things out. Bocca is taking all the necessary measures and is complying with the city regulations regarding COVID. About the truffle risotto, we didn't forget to put truffle in your dish when it came out of the kitchen. We serve and slice the fresh truffles table side on all of our truffle specials

It looked great but as of 1/7 it’s closed. I arrived and the doors were locked and no sign on the door or anything indicating it was closed prior to making a reservation

Hi there, we would like to apologize for the inconvenience but we had an electric outage in the building and just had our temporary power restored, We had no way to reach out to our guests to let them know that we were closed. We hope to see you again soon

Very Nice Looking Spot with stylish Tableware and excellent service..!
We both had the Delicious Burger Lunch Special which was cooked perfectly and served on a Brioche Bun with Sautéed Onions & Mushrooms, Lettuce, Tomato and a Special Sauce. It comes with either Crisp French Fries or a Nice Fresh salad.
I’m told that they prepare excellent Pasta Dishes also. Our waiter was very pleasant, prompt and courteous ...!

The service was impeccable at this authentic Italian restaurant. The pastas are handmade and delicious. Beet and goat cheese salad is a must. There was a minor glitch but the team at this restaurant went above and beyond to make it right. I'm going back often.

They seated me and my friend at a two top but we saw all the four tops were empty and under the heat lamps. So I asked if we could sit there. They said no. The whole night no one sat in the four tops and we were cold at the two top. I finally asked at the end if we could take our dessert by the heat lamps and they said fine. Would have been a much more enjoyable meal had they let us sit in the warmth to start.
