We have enjoyed Tony’s hospitality for almost 15 years! This is a quintessential Italian restaurant! Service is outstanding! Get whatever seafood special is offered—especially halibut. Thanks, Tony and staff! Cent’ anni!
Great prices and even better food!
Super expensive place for food that wasn’t so great. Kind of disappointing for date night but it was fine.
food and service consistently wonderful
good value and nice selection of wines in a relaxed atmosphere
Had an amazing dining experience with great food, fantastic service with an old school neighborhood feel.
Lovely Valentine's Day dinner. Tasty menu options & great service... wonderful staff! Will go back with family for sure!
Our meals were delicious. Wait staff very cordial. We’ll be going back again soon.
We were very disappointed with the food, the Ossobucco was dry, the “risotto” wasn’t, the zucchini flowers were fried with so much batter you couldn’t taste the zucchini flowers. Best thing about this restaurant was the hostess - she was lovely, inviting and friendly.
Service wasn’t the best, very quick to come over to the table to take the order but after that we never saw the waiter. Food was tasteless and over cooked.
La Bocca is one of my favorite restaurants. You can try anything from the menu and they don't disappoint. Highly recommend.
4 of us went for a early-ish Saturday night dinner. Based on our meal quality, the service and the noise level, we will never be going back. We were totally disappointed

This is my "go to" Italian restaurant in White PLains. The food is outstanding, service is great and Tony the owner is very warm and inviting!
Thank you Mark for your genuine review and patronage thru the years! We love you and your family and we really appreciate it. Grazie!
Went there with a group of coworkers. Service was a bit slow. I would say food was just okay. Had pasta that tasted under cooked
Hi there! Thank you for dining with us! We do appreciate it. We usually tend to cook our pasta "molto al dente" in order to give that firm bite that is usually pleasant. I hope you consider to give us another chance so we can cook our delicious pasta just as you like! Grazie
Would highly recommend
And I can’t wait to go back
We had a reservation but we were told to wait. My husband did not like the way the gentleman at the door spoke to the people that came behind us who didn’t have a reservation. Then we were told even if you have a reservation you have to wait. We never saw him even check who had a reservation.
Hi there! Thank you for sharing your feedback. I already transferred it to our main dining manager which will address from now on our check in procedure.I'm sorry you and your guests had to wait longer than expected for your table, in general that doesn't happen often as we don't tend to overbook and we like that our guests enjoy their experience since the very first step into our door. Please accept my apologies and I hope you'll consider to give us another chance. You won't be disappointed.
Very bad experience. Mozzarella sticks were frozen, mussels were old and smelly, and veal was from the freezer. Will not return.

This is my favorite Italian in White Plains, service, food and environment is outstanding!!
Thank you so so much! Looking forward to see you soon!
Food was excellent and served quickly and all together for everyone in our party. Convenient and reasonable parking very close to restaurant.
Thank you very much for your feedback. We are looking forward to see you soon!
Nice restaurant, but baked clams smelled fishy and main fish dish also was inedible. Chicken paillard seared black and burnt. Paid $200 with 2 glasses of wine, not worth it. Quality used to be much better. Not sure why food quality was so poor unless we ordered the wrong items.
Hi there! Thank you for sharing your experience. We are very sorry that your meal wasn't as good as the last time you've visited us.

Thank you so much! We do work very hard in order to provide authentic Italian food and superb service. We are so happy to being recognize for it. Grazie, see you soon.
very friendly, convivial atmosphere, above average food
Very good food but not totally accommodating with seating.
We love LaBocca
Thank you! We love you too!
Excellent service and menu. Many nice specials to choose from.
A bit pricey but worth it.
Thank you Ralph for your review! We are happy that you were delight with our meal offer and our amazing service. I agree with you, the specials are what really makes our establishment outstanding! See you soon!
This might be my 4th or 5th review of La Bocca, a frequent business lunch destination for me...which by itself infers that I think it's terrific. Jose is a stalwart presence on the wait staff, and sees to our every need. One of my guests ordered a pizza that I thought could have benefitted from 1 more minute in the oven, but really, I'm nit-picking. La Bocca is a great example of a spot:on, old-school Italian restaurant.
I t was my birthday and our table was not quite ready so we went to the bar and they bought me a drink which was a nice start. I had chicken Parmesan which was fantastic! My husband had Zappa di pesce and loved it. It was chock full of seafood.
Spend a wonderful evening dining it Italy. From the moment you enter the door you feel like you have crossed the ocean and about to experience fine Italian dining. Imagine, the staff speaks Italian! And make you feel so welcomed. And the food - a varied menu but with many of your favorites. The freshest ingredients, homemade pasta and so many amazing specials. And excellent value as well.
Say hi to Chris at the bar and enjoy a glass of wine from their extensive selection. Maybe even the owner will stop to chat. Can't wait to return to La Bocca.
Pasta was excellent and I was able to make modifications to the dish without any issue.
We had gone about 2 months ago and it was so good we decided to go back for my birthday. It took a while to find a wine we liked and once we did we were told they only had one bottle. The waiter was very kind but the slowest person. It took forever to even get the wine. We arrived at 6 and didn’t leave before 9 and the restaurant was half empty so not sure what took so long for everything. The food was ok at best. The last time we were there I had a salad that was the best salad and I couldn’t find it again on the menu. I ended up with a Caesar that was ok at best. Everyone else thought their meal was fine as well but nothing great and not worth the struggle to find parking.
Great selection of home style Italian food. Service is excellent and the owner, Alessandro is a gracious host.
From start to finish everything was fantastic! Will be back again
We were not from the area and I took the open table str review as an endorsement. This restaurant may once have been good but it didn’t show that night.
I sat down to a cracked appetizer plate. Menus were beaten up, lighting varied It was difficult to hear our waiter who isn’t want to disturb the table next to us. We are not deaf but were interested in the extensive special offering. I ordered halibut special. Fair portion but swimming in sauce. Fair nothing more. Pasta was the same.overpriced for mediocre food
Disappointed with open table as a source for a good $$$
I’ve eaten here several times. The food and service are outstanding. One of the best linguine and clams I’ve ever had and comparable to one I ate in Italy. I would recommend this place highly
Fantastic food and service! Highly recommended ... well prepared... wonderful service....
Terrible from start to finish.
We asked for the wine list, told there was no wine list that he would just verbally tell us. “Merlot, Cabernet, Chianti, etc.” just generic varietals, no specific maker or vintage!?
No mention of specials.
The customer at the table next to us, seated a few minutes later. Received a big full page wine list, a whole 2 minutes of specials were explained to him. What the hell?
Meal was pathetic.
Appetizers were just sad. Stuffed clams looked like that came from a gas station! Terrible.
Beet salad was completely forgettable. A ton of arugula and maybe one small beet sliced up and dumped on it.
Entrees equally dismal.
Outrageously priced for a terrible experience.
Excellent Dinner as always. Mozzarella the finest in W.P. Pasta dishes excel.
Cozy atmosphere - wonderful service. All adds up to an enjoyable evening with friends as everyone left with smiles on their faces.
I wouldn't order the monk fish again, it was a bit bland. Pasta and salad were delicious. The braciola was a bit tough. I would eat there again and just try a different dish. Service was excellent and atmosphere very pleasant.
This week the food and service were excellent and the owner/chef was out and about talking with everyone. Maybe that was the difference.
Always a good place. Very good wine list.
Eggplant parm was spoilt had to be sent back
Never had spoilt food in Restaurent before
Poor communication English in part of waiter
Manager was good
Only saving grace
