    Great spot for a date night. The pasta was perfectly cooked, the wine selection was traditional and modern simultaneously, and we felt like we were honored guests. We will be back!

    Quaint and comfortable inside, but a little noisy(sat next to speakers). The food was really lacking quality and freshness, and not much cohesion. And the service was pretty good and somewhat attentive, just not very knowledgeable or enthusiastic about what they’re serving(including sommelier). The prices weren’t too bad, but not interested in returning… unless we come back for Speak Easy in basement. Really cool, intimate vibe in basement.

    Food and service very good. Kitchen was slow between first course and salad. Pasta Carbonara was much too salty. Used bacon instead of pancetta or something milder. Patio is lovely. Food server was gracious and warm.

    My husband and I went to celebrate our birthdays. Service was friendly and the perfect amount of attentive. Food was seriously delicious— we had the baked goat cheese app, Caesar salads, the Bacci, and the carbonara. They were so sweet and brought us dessert with little happy birthday signs and candles. Definitely recommend.

    My colleague and I went to Bocca as I selected it on Open Table, mostly because of the great reviews. Bocca is not a large restaurant, and the ambiance was that of a cozy and calming place to have dinner with friends. I had the Calamari as an appetizer and my friend had the Arancini. Both were wonderful. For dinner, I had shrimp and my friend had Tagliata. Both were fantastic. Huge shout out to our server, LeAnn. She was amazing. If I didn't have a flight home the next day, I would have gone back!!

    Had the ruby trout special with lobster butter on risotto. Huge portion & took half home as was a very rich dish. A bit salty. Hubby had simple pasta with meatballs. Also had chop salad which was great & arancini. The latter should have been a bit crispier. Love the ambience & so close to home.

    Food was great. Maritza was our bartender / server. She was amazing. We told her profile of wine we wanted and she recommended the perfect wine. Oysters were amazing, as were the lamb and pasta entrees. Chocolate mousse dessert was incredible!

    My wife and I have eaten here at least 10 times since they opened and until last evening we never had a bad meal. We both ordered the same chicken dish and both were over-cooked. My wife asked to take hers off the bill, but I chose to try it again. Unfortunately mine was over-cooked a second time. There were 3 other adults and 2 kids with us, all were very satisfied with their entrées. The appetizer and salads were wonderful. We were just surprised and disappointed in our meals. The service and wine were excellent as usual.

    The food was average. My chicken was dried out and my vegetables were cold. The service was extremely slow . Our waitress never came to check on us so we weren’t able to ask for Parmesan cheese for the pasta. Not going back there. There’s so many other better Italian restaurants. Go to their sister restaurant: Ambrosia for a better meal.

    There isn't one thing that's not worth ordering. We started with watermelon bruchetta, tried the Orange wine, I had the Bacci entree, and finished with coffee and doughnuts dessert. Everything is wonderful as this is the upteenth time I've been there and always been blown away by service and quality of food.
