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.

Visited with my family and we really enjoyed everything from the ambiance to service and food. Waiters were Italian and super friendly and food came out quick. Their cacio e pepe is their specialty so don’t forget to try that. We didn’t try any of their mixed drinks but those looked delicious too.

Food was incredible, all the pasta was made perfectly. The waiters seemed like they kept forgetting about us and were hardly around to make sure everything was okay. We had to ask for water several times on our own.

Overall, it was all delicious. We weren't in a rush so it worked for us.

The food was good but service could’ve been better. It took way to long to receive water after being seated. Waiter seemed impatient and forgot something I asked for with my meal. Other than that the overall experience was good.

Food was amazing. Took off a star for stale bread. Especially when bread is your first reflection of the restaurant. The bread tasted good, but was definitely not fresh. The eggplant appetizer and beet salad were delicious and well prepared. We also had the pappardelle, brussels, and the salmon. All excellent. Wait staff were attentive. Will absolutely go again.

The food was very good and our waiter was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. But the place is expensive including cocktails that were $20 a glass. I will still probably return, but maybe I will order a bit more carefully next time.

I came here for my BFs bday and it was a lovely restaurant. Great ambiance, prompt service and our glasses were never empty. We were one of 4 tables and plenty of room for more. My only demerit is that I specified this was a birthday dinner and told them it was a birthday dinner and no mention or anything special after that. Not even an offer...🙁.
