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.

    Space is a little small, but not cramped. Nothing to absorb the ambient sounds so it is a little noisey. Food was all very good to excellent. Prices were a little high for the quantity received. Only one waiter for the floor - poor guy really worked hard that evening and carried it off well !

    First time at Bocca for restaurant week and it was absolutely incredible. Our waitress, Rose, was such a pleasure and gave us limoncello and espresso martinis to taste. We got the veal meatballs and Arancini to start, probably the best I’ve ever had; for entree, Cacio e Pepe and Orecchiette con Vongole e Friarielli. I cannot put into words how amazing my experience here was. I will for sure be going back!

    The service from our host and other waiters was just so great. It makes the experience so much better. In fact, when our waiter realized that they forgot to serve our appetizer, they apologized and topped off our drinks. Food was delicious.

    Their food week menu was great! Great options for all three courses and the price was very reasonable. Bar tender made great drinks and made good conversation with us as well. Was a little warm inside, but it has been around 100 the last few days. Overall I would recommend to anyone in the flatiron area.

    Really great ambiance, the outdoor space was sealed which helped the heat out a bit. If you would like a great get together with friends or a laid back date, this is a great spot

    The Bronzino was old and tasted awful. The Brussel sprouts were too hard to eat even though I asked if they were soft and was told yes. The sautéed kale was also too hard to eat. The only things good were the artichokes and mashed potatoes.

    First time here - it is a nice place. We loved the Roasted cauliflower head, cacio e pepe fondue, black truffle appetizer, the pasta we got for dinner Scialatelli, San Marzano tomato sauce, eggplant, smoked buffalo mozzarella, parmigiano, fresh basil sounded delicious, but it was just ok. I wouldn't order it again if we ever go back here.
