Despite being our of their Montepulciano wine, it did not detract from an overall great dining experience.

Waited 45 mins to order. Then the food took another hour to arrive. No free bday dessert.

Amazing! Come see Gustavo and the team here, sounds like an inside review but isn't. They are just so gracious and friendly we felt like family before we left. Frequent visitors to NYC but first time back since pandemic. Had a great time here with fabulous food and service. Partner had pizza, I had pasta. An accidental mess-up on the drink order was corrected in the most gracious and warm way I have EVER experienced at ANY restaurant. Highly recommend!

Our food was good. The linguine with clams was very good. The pasta with grilled chicken and sundried tomatoes was good. The gnocchi were good. Neither of those two were that special. The service was okay.

Well am I ever glad BdiB finally opened up again. This is one of my goto restaurants in HK and I was seriously missing the food from this Italian kitchen. While they have yet to add a risotto back to the menu, I can deal with the other selections and my niece and I had a lovely dinner sitting outside.

Cannot recommend this place enough. Delicious food, charming waitstaff, and the perfect ambiance! On May 4th they even had the Empire Strikes Back playing on the TV at the bar! Will definitely be back to try even more of the menu.

We went here with our family to celebrate a birthday. We were a big group and they accommodated our requests. The service was slightly slow, I guess that could be attributed to covid and staff shortage. Overall food was good. They did not have all the wines on the menu, but again I would say that was probably due to covid. They have lot of options on the menu and are offering the entire menu to patrons.

Food was very good, shrank menu, I guess due to COVID-19 and the Holiday. I will go back to try lamb ragu, when available.

What a great find in Hell's Kitchen!

We had a party of 10 this past Friday evening and everybody raved about the place and food. We were warmly welcomed upon entering and made to feel right at home.

We started with salads and finished every deliciously dressed leaf. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara and have to say it is the best I have ever had! Another person had the salmon and it was a large piece presented beautifully and seasoned and cooked perfectly. Although we all felt we couldn't eat another bite, desserts were irresistible! Service throughout was seamless and smooth and very friendly.

We will definitely be back when we're in NY again, but for now will fondly reminisce about our visit.

So wonderful to welcome Bocca di Bacco back to the neighborhood! The dining room is just as beautiful, cozy and rustic as ever, and the tables are nicely spread out for safety. I had the most wonderful branzino with mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes. And the profiteroles for dessert were absolutely awesome. The service was outstanding and the prices so reasonable. One of the best Italian restaurants in NYC!

Pure coincidence that I made the reservation n to knowing it was their first day back in business! Lucky for us! The pizza ovens were done but we had a great meal, a welcoming staff, and the same warm ambience we've come to expect from this neighborhood treasure.

I’m so incredibly happy with our choice to dine at Bocca. My roommate’s mother and aunt were visiting from Australia. It was their first night in NYC and we wanted to impress them. Success! The service was perfect. Nunzio even made us feel super special, like we were his only table (on a bustling Friday night at 8pm) and the food was wonderful. I had the salmon cooked medium. It was perfect. The caramelized onions were sooooo good. Others had the seafood special, linguini with squid ink and seafood. The only miss was the claw of the lobster was underdone. Perhaps the claw was sticking out of the pot while boiling. It didn’t stop us and the flavors were terrific! The noise was a bit loud, but as we sat down we were fine at the table. The noise became and energy and best of the busyness of the restaurant. They were all so happy with our restaurant choice after their long 24 hours of travel. And NYC made a great impression on them instantly! We will return. Thank you!

Of the 3 Bocca locations, this one is the least appealing ambiance-wise. I’ve had spectacular salads both at the Chelsea and 45th st location. My selection here disappointed. The pasta was delicious, and the service outstanding.

Everything we had at Bocca di Bacca was absolutely scrumptious - Carpaccio, Sea Bass, Sweet & Spicy Sausage Pasta, Kale Salad & Tiramisu. Tables are a bit on top of each other but that didn’t detract from our enjoyment. I highly recommended! FYI, I’m a food(ie) snob.

We took a long walk on a very cold day to reach Bocca di Bacco and in the end it was really a very mediocre meal. I guess if you are in the neighborhood, that wouldn't bee such a bad place to have not such a great meal, but I certainly will not go out of my way again to eat there.
