Bocca Di Bacco is a New York City Restaurant Group establishment from dynamic restaurateur and New York native Robert Malta, who owns nearly a dozen restaurants throughout the city. “I’ve been in the business 25 years,” Malta says. “I opened the first Bocca Di Bacco in Hell’s Kitchen in 2007 and it quickly became a neighborhood favorite. The Chelsea location is an evolution of what we’ve been offering. There are new menu items, and a more refined look and feel, but it’s still a great spot for the neighborhood any night of the week.”

Lovely Italian restaurant on 9th Ave. Tables indoors and out. GREAT service. I’ve had the pasta, fish, all good. Reasonable prices to boot.

Everyone was friendly and attentive. They genuinely seemed to care. The manager checked in at our table a couple times and our waiter, Edison, was really great. Partner that with good food and value, I think this place deserves its success. Thanks!

Food and service here is consistently good. Portions are enough but not overly generous. We were offered and a decent deal on a bottle of Malbec instead of by the glass. Kitchen went off menu for my wife who's vegan. That's appreciated. Its one of our go to's in the area.

I've been here 3 times now. While the food is good, the service is pretty bad. Each time, the servers have been rude and dismissive; and actually seem to get impatient if you don't know your order in the first 5 minutes. The bus staff appears to be unable to communicate at all in English. It's a shame because the restaurant itself is so nice.

Great homemade pasta. Good, relaxed vibe. Service was very good but we came at a slow time (5:30 PM) and we had to flag down the waiter a couple times, bill was wrong (but they happily fixed it) and they forgot to bring a drink. I would highly recommend Bocca Di Bacco again.

Had reservations early in the evening so it wasn't a madhouse like some places in the Meatdistrict can get. We weren't rushed through our meal which was nice and the service was attentive but not overbearing. The house kale salad was amazing as were the zucchini fries! Everyone really enjoyed their main entrée.

Our waitress was not very attentive or communicative. Anytime we asked the waitress a question she would just walk away without responding or speaking to us. We got the cheese board and there was mold on the cheese and bread, to make up for it they brought us calamari which neither of us eat and they left the cheese board on the bill. Our entrees were fine, but I wouldn’t run back there for a pretty average meal.

There were definite issues with our dinner but the professional way our complaint was handled by management made it worth giving the place another try. Getting adequate help seems to be everyone’s problem these days Most of what we ordered was delicious and they make a killer jalapeño margarita.

Came for an early dinner and was sat right away by the hostess. Busboy immediately asked what type of water we wanted and brought us some nice fresh bread. Abby our server was very polite and took our order right away. The food was decent and I would come back again to this location. Overall a nice experience!

Such a disappointing dinner on our wedding anniversary at one of our go to restaurants in Chelsea. Unfortunately it’ll be our last time. Service was painfully slow and food inedible.

This was our second time at the restaurant but first time at the Chelsea location. Safe to safe it was disappointing. The food was probably the worse Italian food I’ve ever had , probably even the worse food I’ve ever had period. The spaghetti lobster pasta dish was so bland and lacking flavor I had to send it back( first time ever doing that at a restaurant) for the carbonara which was just as bad. Took three spoonfuls and left it on the table. Neither dish had any taste to it whatsoever except for the taste of unseasoned butter. The waiter comped our drinks which was nice and appreciated but never once did a manager stop by or come over. Didn’t even see one walk around or greet any other tables. Safe to say it was the most disappointing meal I’ve ever had. Don’t waste your time here when there are countless better options.
