The staff was friendly and attentive. Our server was fantastic (thanks, Jesus)! The food was delicious. The best Burrata I've tasted anywhere in Westchester. No wine list but the house cab was good. The portions were generous. My bone in ribeye was thicker, more tender and tastier than what I've had at Ruth's Chris. My wife loved her chicken scarp (spicy). The owner, Tony, came over to our table to see if we were happy. The Italian cheesecake was good. Very good value. 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. We'll be back. -Stan
Always excellent. Outstanding food at reasonable prices. Restaurant beautifully decorated for Christmas Eve.
Really good food, efficient and friendly service. There are two rooms, one with an active bar scene and one that may usually be quieter than it was on the night we visited, when there was a large family birthday party going on. Nice family, happy occasion, but not the place to seat us when we’d explained to the maitre d’ that our 91 year old dad needed a quiet spot so he could hear. It wasn’t clear when we sat down that everyone else in the room was one big group seated at lots of tabled for a party just getting started. It would have been kinder if the situation was explained; we would have happily come back another night. So Poppy heard not a word all dinner long. Oh well.
Everything about the restaurant was ordinary. There was nothing outstanding. Food was pleasant although the "risotto" served with the shrimp tasted like Carolina rice with a little parmesan and lemon. Squash blossoms were slightly greasy--but tasty. I wouldn't rush back.
Food was very good and the service was also good but a little rushed. My veal piccata was a small portion for the price paid.
Amazing antipasti plate! A definite must share with the table.
Seated immediately. Pomegranate martini - so so (you can tell they don't make them often). Only house wine is by the glass, but decent cabernet. Cold antipasto - your average fare. The special (braised short ribs with gnocchi) was delicious!. Bread could have been a little fresher. Warm apple tart with ice cream was buttery, delicious and decadent. Tartufo was your average tartufo. The bathroom though spacious really needed to be kept up. It wasn't dirty per se, but when I used it (about an hour into our meal), there was toilet paper strewn all over the place and the new roll was sitting on top of the empty roll. For a decent restaurant, it shouldn't be like that. My biggest problem was the acoustics. It was very noisy, but it was also a Saturday night. I will go again as I have gone many times before.
Went on a Friday for date night. The ambiance can be described as similar to a dimly lit pizzeria with a bar, except they don’t serve pizza. I wouldn’t describe the restaurant as dirty, but it does not exude a very clean feeling.
The prices on the menus reflect fine Italian dining, but the menus are single sided laminated plastic sheets that scream Olive Garden. I ordered a glass of Cab, which was passable; my SO ordered a glass of Riesling which was undrinkable. Calamari appetizer was fine, main courses were ok. I will note there were many specials, all of which sounded great. I ordered a special, my SO ordered off the menu. All in all over $100 for a subpar dinner for 2.
Final note- we were seated in the back next to a curtain… behind the curtain is the restrooms. Maybe don’t have a table within 5 feet of the bathroom doors. Curtain or not. If you can hear flushing from your table, its too close. There appears to be a dining room, but we were not seated there, so I cannot speak to that part of the restaurant.
They prepared a lovely antipasti that was customized for 3 people. The eggplant ratatouille was the best we've ever had! Service is outstanding.
Always enjoy La Bocca....great food and friendly service!...burrata is fabulous!
