Food and service are fantastic! One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Highly recommend!!!
Overall, Bocca was a nice experience. The food really was quite good. However, it was noticeably understaffed (only two people for an increasingly busy dining room), and this created slower service, and a couple of slip-ups. Before we were seated, we ordered a round of drinks and an appetizer at the bar. We were given an extra appetizer we didn't order, though we never mentioned it because the poor guy who was tending bar and later being our server part of the time was so nice (and the appetizer was quite tasty). The woman acting as both the hostess and our server part of the time was fairly nice, although she showed a bit of attitude about our changing our minds about how we wanted to divide the bill amongst the three of us. Most of all, we didn't blame the two of them - they needed a dedicated bartender, at least. But again, an overall good evening out.
Absolutely delicious, every bite. Can't wait to return again!
Excellent restaurant. Very enjoyable will return. Pasta was excellent and the fried Calimari was Chrisp. Very relaxed atmosphere.
I enjoyed the experience and the food. The cacio e pepe was delicious but too salty. I asked my dinner guest and she felt the same. Loved the veal meatballs.
We had dinner at Bocca for Father's Day celebration. Everything was so yummy. Now it has become my children's favorite Italian restaurant.
I had been to Bocca during restaurant week 2 years ago and was attended by a very nice waiter from Italy; the food was outstanding; because the experience was so good, I made a point of going out of my way to go there again when I was in town, this time bring my brother in law and his wife; our waiter was horribly rude; we and one other table were the only traffic in the restaurant at the time; however, he was more interested in speaking with his co workers at the bar than assisting us with the menu; with all the restaurants in NY, this is one we will never again choose
We came here to try out the Tonnarelli cacio e pepe which is pasta served in a cheese wheel. It did not disappoint!
Excellent cocktails (negroni, martini), appetizers and pastas = great date night. The Caccio e Pepe is scooped out of a cheese wheel table side, and couldn’t be better.
We had the price-fixe lunch Which was delicious. We are a group of friends to go get together often and they let us sit and talk for as long as we wanted.
First time we visited Bocca and it will not be the last one. Due to my daughter's Thesis show at Parsons, we came late, basically ordering at 10pm, at a time when the kitchen closes. I expected a quick dinner, since the staff surely wanted to go home. To our surpise we got a perfect dinner, wonderfull presentation. Incredible service by all the staff. What a nice treat so late at night!!
We will be back for sure!!
Waiter knew nothing about their menu or wine and needs to learn about how to be a waiter. He in addition to incompetent was annoying..
Very good Italian food in a very comfortable restaurant. A great place to have a meal with friends.
Awful service!!!!! Will not go back!
Food was delish and fresh!!
Our visit to Bocca was incredible. The food had well-balanced flavors and was insanely delicious. The waiters were the most attentive and friendly waiters we've ever met (truely, I'm not exaggerating). We will insist that all our friends whom will visit New York have a meal at Bocca.
The food was delightful, and yummy. The wine was exactly what you want, with a wide selection to choose from. I lingered with a friend catching up over the last 20 years, and we were allowed to linger. I loved it and will go back.
This is great when ever you go. Top notch food with great sundried tomato in oil.
Pasta fish meat.. have it all ..
This was a last-minute find and really a nice little gem. My wife and daughter were in the mood for pasta and turned out to be very good. Our server Kevin was very friendly and attentive and the food came out hot and fresh… And the pasta did not disappoint!!The salads were delicious and the bread with their homemade dipping sauce is spectacular! Always awesome to get pleasantly surprised when your not expecting it. Will definitely recco to others and pay another visit when we return.
Bocca is a must when I visit NYC! Fantastic drinks and delicious food!
We were looking for a nice spot for a dinner with friends in the flatiron area and ended up booking bocca. The atmosphere is casual, everybody is super friendly and the food was really tasty. We’ll definitely come back.
Bocca is a fantastic restaurant. Nico, the manager, is very knowledgeable and very friendly. Fabrizio our waiter was perfection. Our food was excellent and just the right amount, real roman fare as authentic as it gets (I'm Italian ). I would recommend Bocca as one of the best Italian restaurants in Manhattan, don't miss out!
Our Open Table reservation was books in wrong location but Bocca Cincinnati was fabulous- accommodating our mixup so that we had a wonderful experience.
Good food at a fair price. If you are in the neighborhood this is a place to have a good dinner up to a party of 4.
The restaurant was so loud my dinner companion and I could barely hear each other. And we are not going deaf. Yet. Although, after our experience at Bocca...
The food and atmosphere was amazing. The staff was super friendly and professional. This is a great place to go on a date or with a small group.
Fabulous lasagna with Gorgonzola cream sauce and mushrooms. - real winner. And, wonderful, attentive service
I’d highly recommend!
One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants especially during the week. On the weekend usually noise level is very high
Excellent food and service. The cacio e pepe is served in a cheese wheel and tasted delicious. The gnocchi was equally excellent. The pastas are clearly fresh and homemade. Would highly recommend!
This restaurant was ok. Food was good, but not over the top amazing in my mind. Service was fine, our waitress had a bit of an attitude and wait staff placed dishes in front of wrong people, but the food generally made up for it. Only con to the food was my pasta seemed to be swimming in butter/oil. Overall I enjoyed this restaurant, but probably won't come back.
The food was the issue. Soup was not good and not hot. The entrée was not hot, but fair. Service was very good and were concerned about me not liking the soup and reduced the bill without me even asking.
Fantastic lasagne with Gorgonzola and mushrooms! Don’t miss it
What a great dinner we had here! The food was fantastic. The servers were very friendly.
Not good. Way expensive for nothing. Few Choices. Don't bother.
Date night for my boyfriend and I. Such an amazing change of pace from our usual take out in bed with Netflix dates. The tomato spread and Italian bread to start was decedent, mushroom polenta was creamy and delicious, we split the squid ink gnocchi which was to DIE for, and the quail second course was OK.
Dessert was delicious but slightly over priced for the size in my opinion. All and all would love to go back, so delicious, amazing ambiance.
Adorable quaint and intimate atmosphere. Very energetic vibe amongst the crowd. Can be casual or dressy. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Not your "ordinary" Italian menu; creative. Food was delicious and perfect portion-size. We loved the "cheese wheel." If you choose, the staff places your pasta in the cheese wheel and seasons it rather than using the usual cheese shaker...very "Italiano." We will return.
Delicious food and great service. Everyone was really nice and the again the food was exceptional. For sure coming back.
The prix fixe menu was great.our waiter was attentive but we did not feel rushed.
We will go back
Excellent dinner - very pleased with the experience.
I would 100% go back there! Excellent service, tasty food and delicious red wine! Give it a try, you wont regret it!
