    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.

    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

    La BoccaResponded on December 26, 2019Hi Alans. Thank you for sharing your feedback and perception. We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your experience, we do work very hard to provide an absolutely authentic Italian meal and an outstanding service. Noise level is unfortunately out of our control, especially on the weekends. I'll like to know more about your experience and I will appreciate if you can provide me more details. Please email me at info@laboccaristorante Thank you!

    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

    La BoccaResponded on December 26, 2019Hi 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

    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.

    La BoccaResponded on December 26, 2019Hi 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.

    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.

    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.

    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. Bon appetit

    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.

    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 $$$ Restaurant

    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.
