    Pretty Good

    Came on a quiet Wednesday night. Very nice ambiance, decent wine selection, well crafted appetizer selection, however, settled on fried Calamari which was average (to be fair it's hard to do too much w/ that dish, but I've had better). The rest of the menu was very well thought out with a lot of creativity in each of the main dishes. Recommend mint pasta with the lamb shank with heirloom tomatoes starter. The place more than holds it own, with reasonable entree prices, however, they tend to take it out of you at the bar or appetizer selection which costs nearly as much as an entree. There are some average wines and house selections that go for $14-18 a glass and just seemed a bit exorbitant in the end. Bottom line, if you're looking for a quality, consistent, at times inspirational meal, and don't mind a little sticker shock that comes along w/ such an evening, you've found the right spot (for at least a limited 1 time visit, if not a return).

    Poor management

    My server was fanatasic, very accomadating. Me and my 2 friends finished eating and paid the bill. 2 of us were finishing our drink and 1 was in the restroom. The manager of head host, came up to us and told us we had to leave, because they needed the table in 5 minutes. Tell me the name of one restaurant in NYC where you never have to wait for 5 minutes, even if you have a reservation. How rude. The poor waiter who took care of us was mortified. Regardless of the food quality and the great waiter, I will not go back there. How rude

    Best Italian in the city!!

    Went to Bocca this weekend and had an amazing experience. The food is absolutely delicious - really reminds me of being in Italy. Try the Tonnarelli Cacio E Pepe - it is out of this world!! I would highly recommend this excellent restaurant!

    bring back the black spaghetti

    i might have been a little drunk last night so pardon my inability to read the menu but i'm fairly certain the squid ink spaghetti w/ the creamy seafood sauce is no longer available. this is, in my huge and opposite of humble opinion, a terrible mistake. it's one of their best dishes! instead, we had the pasta alla amatraciana which was really, really salty. the flavors otherwise were great. the guanciale is pretty salty to begin with, and i'm sure that wasn't taken into account when whoever prepared the dish seasoned with salt. bummer! i considered asking the server for a small bowl of ricotta as it would have evened out the salinity but i didn't want to be a jerk. the maialino (roast pig) comes with great, shatteringly crisp slabs of skin and moist, tender meat. oh, that was a winner, indeed, along with the roasted potatoes it was served with. however, the obviously canned artichoke hearts, not even rinsed, still tasted of the brine they arrive in. but whatever, who eats artichokes on platter when there is roast suckling pig to be eaten? there was a charming italian fella, young, who kissed each female patron on the hand or cheek, and shook every male patron's hand upon their departure. he was sweet, asking why i selected the wine that i did. "i am from umbria," he said in his delightful accent. i, having ingested wine elsewhere with coworkers, mumbled something about lidia bastianich. this seemed to placate him. anyway, i'll definitely go back. three shared courses AND a bottle of wine and the total, pre tip, was around 100$. thanks, y'all. love this place!

    Black Linguine

    Bocca has exceptional food and drinks! Must try the house made black linguine, it is absolutely AMAZING. Bocca also won't break your wallet for the quality of food they serve. This place is great for celebrations or a cozy date for two :) Highly Highly recommended.

    lovely little place!

    service is fantastic, as was the eggplant timbale (i was swayed by the previous review, actually, so thank you for suggesting it as i LOVE eggplant so much). i also enjoyed the crispy polenta topped w/ mushroom & house made sausage (i believe it was a special for the evening). unfortunately, as i felt ill (not at all related to the food), i had to depart early, and the server was gracious enough to knock the entrees off the bill since they didn't make it to the table before i had to leave. i'm only saddened because they didn't have the maialino available the night i went, and i was REALLY looking forward to it. i was a bit crushed.
