Dynamic menu of original Southern Italian cuisine that dominates this welcome addition to Hell’s Kitchen. This addition is made even more welcome with the breathtaking beautiful transformation of a once historic space into a hip, fun, stop for dinner that any gourmand will savor.


Formerly, known as Film Center Cafe, Bocca Di Bacco boasts Italian cuisine from Puglia, Sicily, and Sardegna with the endless selection of wines from small vineyards in Italy. Exemplifying our policy of being “Farm to Table” operated, we use the healthiest ingredients from locally grown vendors. Located in the heart of the Theater District, this new modernized restaurant features innovative new recipes and the use of the Enomatic Wine Systems.

    I wasn’t impressed with the food at all. The pizza was not good and I was burping up the pasta all night. The restaurant desperately needs to be updated. I wouldn’t return to this restaurant.

    PROS: Got us in early. Hostess was super friendly. Cool quiet vibe with outdoor seating. The Calamari was fantastic and came out quickly. CONS: Pesto Pasta and Pizza were fine. Nothing amazing or special as NYC is full awesome comparable foods. We had fountain sodas and were not informed that we did not receive free refills. We were charged for each glass. Give a heads up. As many people stated, the most unpleasant piece was the service. We didn’t know who our server was, we had 3 different people at the table (and additional runners delivering food). They didn’t introduce themselves, acted like they didn’t want to be there and did not seem interested in us either. There were 5 customers inside and 6 customers outside- not busy at all. The workers inside were on their phones. After our meal they asked us about dessert we declined and they walked away. Our table was cleared with no bill as we sat and waited. Overall, fine wouldn’t return or recommend.

    They forgot to put the order in for our main dishes and we only found out when we had to leave in 20 minutes for a show. They said it’d take another 45 minutes. Had to cancel and went to the show extremely hungry.

    The restaurant was quite warm tonight, which was unpleasant.. took over an hour for the place to feel comfortable. Service was quick, but the server was hard to track down towards the end of the meal. Frito misto was great, and skirt steak was good, but the steak was not as tasty as in the past.

    I chose this restaurant because per the website they offer Lambrusco. However, Lambrusco was not on offer. The two appetizers I ordered were quite good, especially the shrimp appetizer. I liked the setting of the restaurant but found the service indifferent.

    The restaurant was very crowded on a Saturday evening , however we were seated immediately because we had a reservation. The food is consistently very good and arrived at the table quickly. If you wish to have a leisurely dinner, take time between ordering cocktails, appetizers, entree and dessert. If you want to have a quick dinner, no problem. The service is attentive and outstanding.

    We had a fabulous experience at Bocca Di Bacco!! I booked this restaurant off of open table not knowing what to expect. We arrived early and we were able to get a table right away! Service was excellent, drinks were amazing and the food was delicious! Ambiance was a bit dark but kind of nice for a fun night out in NYC with friends. I highly recommend this place and will 100% be back in the future!

    Excellent restsurant. It is small and intimate with excellent service. The food was delicious and good selection of wine. My only recommendation would be to improve the lighting. It is quite dark in the restaurant and it was hard to even read the menu. We would definitely go back for another visit.

    I was so excited to return here from my last visit before the shutdown! It was better than ever. From the cool jazz music to the very sweet, efficient, caring servers and, of course, the food. I needed to eat lightly and found the perfect appetizer and salad.. I ordered the ahi tuna with avocado and the field greens salad. Now these are very common on most menus but Bocca Di Bacco put a personal touch to these dishes that was not only delicious but a lovely presentation. The ahi tuna was decorated with curling banana sheaves and chipotle sauce and the salad had a pinwheel of goat cheese with pignoli nuts. My very berry cocktail was just that! And it packed a punch that came a bit later!! But since I was there to relax, it was most welcome! I can not wait to return!
