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.

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 ...!

Absolutely love this place. The burrata is delicious and you must order the Fusilli Alla Norcina (it’s their family recipe).

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.

Excellent crab cakes for brunch. And they treated us to seconds of Prosecco. Nineteenth St is a quiet place to eat outdoors. Looking forward to coming back for brunch and dinner.

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.

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.

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!

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.
