Bocca is a true Roman experience that stems from simplicity and richness.

We follow traditional techniques that allow our guests to embrace the culinary experience of a classic osteria Romana. We prepare our pastas, sauces and broths daily, ensuring both freshness and quality for your meal. Our kitchen staff is trained to follow proper Roman methods such as not using cream in our dishes and serving every pasta “al dente”.

We hope our advocacy for traditionalism satisfies every guest from appetizer to desert. Thank you for considering Bocca as your next meal, we look forward to serving you soon.

    Even though we had made a reservation, they didn’t make an effort to let us know that they were out of electricity and had closed the restaurant. Had to find out when we where already there and found it closed and empty.

    Great service, great food, nice ambiance, though a little noisier than what I like. Menu is simple but delicious. Pasta is cooked to perfection. Service is knowledgeable and attentive. Definitely will come back!

    Service was subpar. Took a long time to get put check since staff barely visited us. Timing was weird. Some plates were brought out before we had finished the previous entree, but then the dessert took a long while to arrive. Most of the food was good.

    Went there form restaurant week and when we got there they told us they didn't have the menu. They were also out of most of the food. Out everything we had the old fashion was the best thing. I was disappointed with the food and the experience.

    They do everything right. All pastas are great. The Damisela cocktail is out of this world, as well as the braised cheek available during PR’s Restaurant Week. 200% recommended!

    Food tastes like it was made with lots of care. Everything we tasted was outstanding. The focaccia was beautiful. Light, fluffy inside and crunchy outside. The carbonara was delicious, fresh. The beef tenderloin was exceptional. So tender and had a beautiful and delicate crust. Very well seasoned. The mushroom sauce was perfect along with the fingerling potatoes. A beautiful meal.

    In PR on vacation… found this place from a simple google search. We celebrated a birthday and the guest of honor requested Italian. Being Italian, we did NOT expect this level of quality from an Italian restaurant in Puerto Rico! We were pleasantly surprised. The wine selection was great, the tomato, mozzarella, arugala and pesto was fresh and delicious. The pomodoro sauce was soooo good. Dare I even compare it to my grandmothers. And the Carbonara was the best I’ve ever had!!! Hidden gem! Must try this place :)

    Just coming back from Tortola and had some extra time for local Italian cuisine. Johnson, our server was a delight! Heed his advice, he knows what’s good! Burrata was exceptional and that tomato purée!!!! Had the Veal Chop (best ever had!) and the Short Rib Ravioli (that sauce!!) Check this lil Mom & Pop place out!!
