This is a great restaurant, and the staff is outstanding.
The service was very bad and the salad we ordered as an appetizer came after the entree.
I reserved a standard table through OpenTable but the restaurant showed it as a request for outdoors. The restaurant accommodated us inside but only after repeatedly explaining that I must have been mistaken.
Food was delicious, service was excellent! Can't wait to go back.
Food was absolutely delicious and wonderful staff!
Great food, ambiance and overall great evening. Thanks!
Good food and service but nothing spectacular.
Food and service were great and ambiance was cozy. All amid Covid
Fantastic food have the shrimp with prosciutto, polipo and the eggplant.. also recommend the barolo. Incredibly well priced and very attentive staff. Very happy they are back open and also have outdoors. Once again very pleased that they are offering a full menu and not the typical ny weekend brunch cop-out so common nowadays and glad to see NY supporting their restaurants by allowing the on street dining. Hopefully they continue to...
This place was fabulous! The staff was lovely and very attentive. It was a brunch menu (don't look at menu here or at website) which was a diverse mix. The food was flavorful but not overdone. Presentation was beautiful. And we choose to sit outside but we will be back to sit indoors.
My party and I ate outdoors and, given the current environment, the staff was incredibly accommodating - all servers wearing protective masks and providing sanitizer upon sitting down at our table. The food was amazing - the veal meatballs were delicious, as well as our pasta dishes. The Cacio e Pepe took me back to Rome, as did the Spaghetti with Guanciale. A delightful dinner al fresco!
Delicious! Excellent quality food with friendly and attentive service (shout out to Erik, who was wonderful!). Will absolutely return.
Staff is great there!
Really nice staff, remember your name and all. Good COVID protocol definitely a great date spot.
Great service. Small portions. Not a good value
I was expecting a bit more from the service and over-all experience, unfortunately we were rushed to be out of the table when I was still having my Vodka Martini and some were still finishing their wine. Nevertheless, food and wine were amazing.
The service and food were impeccable. Amazing outdoor dining experience with excellent food. The staff could not be any more accommodating. Fun Friday night dinner!
I liked the Appetizers more than the main dishes, but overall very good.
Amazing food and service! Will definitely be going back... Nico is the best
Terrific food. Thanks
The food was extra delicious this time. It was my friends' first time at the restaurant, and they loved it. Thanks Bocca!
Food was great. Fresh ingredients and flavors. Portions were perfect - not too much, not too little. Staff was attentive. Given current conditions of covid. They still do their best to make it a pleasant outdoor dining experience. Would definitely return.
Incredible service and food! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Just great ambiance and vibe.
The service was superb, the wine selections were excellent, and all the dishes we had were absolutely delicious. I’d definitely go back to Bocca Cucina soon! Side note: I run into my Italian friend who is very particular about Italian dishes! Seeing him here was a great compliment that I made a right choice to try Bocca.
As all restaurants are forced to do these days we felt quite rushed through our meal. Food was awesome and waiter was realLy nice!! Definitely recommend and will be back
The manager was beyond awesome! Nico is a greeeaat guy! And the food was awesome. We came right back the next day for dinner again.
Food and drinks were superb as well as the staff.
The social distanced set up is well organized and maintains that certain charm of the neighbourhood. The staff was so friendly and attentive, we even got to briefly chat with the owner Alessandro.
The food and the cocktails are delicious. Every single dish was amazing!
Always a pleasure to come to bocca. From the friendly service to the delicious menu you’re always in for a treat!
Good food, wine over priced for low quality wine
The food was very good, but the outdoor dining service was chaotic. The staff seemed rushed and inattentive. It's been tough for restaurants to figure out how to go from indoors to outdoors. Also the ambience for outdoor dining during COVID is just awful most of the time.
1st time eating outdoors. Have eaten here many time before, inside, but I liked the outdoor experience better. Limited menu, but everything was great and the service could not have been better
Both the food and service were excellent. We arrived 45 minutes earlier than our reservation and asked if we could be seated TJ have a drink. Initially we were told no but shortly after we were seated.
Excellent! Unique atmosphere, fantastic service and superb food.
What a beautiful night in NYC during Covid, feeling socially distant and safe in this outdoor setting...sipping Pinot Grigio and enjoying our cacio e pepe and veal Milanese.
We enjoyed our dinner out - service was friendly and prompt, which was no small thing as the tables were set up on both sides of 19th Street and the staff has to walk many miles a night! We were on the far side of the street from the storefront/kitchen, so no muzak, extra quiet = wonderful. (I hate loud restaurants!) Except when the fire trucks went by...actually our fellow diners remarked about how restful it was to be eating on a side street and not an Avenue for just that reason. Food was good too as always.
My best experience in NYC every single time !
I would recommend it to anybody
Other than being asked leave as we were sipping after dinner coffee so they could seat a larger party (really??) it was nice experience
For a Covid date, it was pretty solid. Both the food and cocktails were phenomenal. It’s just a tad expensive.
