    Best pasta in New York

    If you are into real italian food then Bocca is for you. I have been several times to this roman restaurant and absolutely love it. The food is to die for (try the tonarelli), the service is great, a solid Italian wine list, and good cocktails as well, the music is perfectly chosen and the restaurant looks really nice and cozy. A little bonus: the owner is very often there and is the cutest thing ever! A must.

    Good Food & Value

    I visited Bocca last night as part of the Restaurant Week promotion and was overall very pleased with the experience. I had originally made reservations for 3, but it turned out that we had a party of 4 plus a child. This presented no problem when we arrived and we were graciously seated within 10 minutes of our 7:30pm reservation time. The Restaurant Week menu is more expansive than I've seen at some other places, and included 3 choices each for appetizers, entree and desert. All the food was of the highest, freshest quality and the portions were reasonably sized (again, sometimes a problem during Restaurant week, where miniature portions can sometimes be the norm.) Overall an excellent experience, but note that the noise level can be quite high when the dining room is filled, so not the place for quiet conversation.

    Real italian food

    Had dinner there last night with family so we shared everything. The service was very attentive, and the atmosphere was very nice. Everybody in the room seemed to be having a good time. Fresh plates and serving utensils with each course. Branzino, octopus & pastas were all tops. Look forward to going back soon.

    Great restaurant

    My husband and I , were invited at a friend birthday party last week. The service was smooth, attentive, and the food was terrific. We returned Sunday night , just the two of us for a romantic dinner. Surprisingly they had a lovely jazz band and once again it was absolutely amazing. Beautiful spot. The atmosphere is cozy, charming and the music is great. Really interesting cocktail list and also the wine list is very extensive. We will go back many many times!

    Superb!!

    went to Bocca with my girlfriend last night after a friend of mine told me good things about it. The ambiance was relaxing and totally unpretentious the food was delicious, and we highly recommend the berkshire appetizer and the slow roasted pork main course..my girlfriend LOVED IT the cocktails were inventive, such as the basil gimlet a very refreshing cocktail and the service was impeccable. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. The apple tart dessert was also fantastic. We can't wait to return to this restaurant.

    Hidden gem

    I found Bocca on Opentable and figured we'd give it a try based on the menu. I arrived before my wife, and was offered some complementary appetizers while waiting for my wife and sipping a glass of wine at the bar. Dinner was top notch (and so was their crusty Italian bread), and the service was excellent. Their wine list was also solid. We're looking forward to going back soon.

    Pasta served in foil

    The only reason we chose the restaurant is because Bocca is the sister restaurant of Cacio e Pepe in the East Village. Though they supposedly have the same chef/menu, the two couldn't have been more unrelated. On a Saturday night we called to see if our party of 6 could be accommodated, as the original Cacio couldn't seat us within the hour. They insisted that if we were there within 15 minutes, it was possible. When we arrived, the restaurant was nearly empty. Maybe he should have said if we arrived...ever...we could easily be accommodated. We specifically went to the restaurant for the signature cacio e peppe dish that comes in a wheel of peccorino cheese...when nearly all of us tried to order the dish, our waiter gave us a scowl and insisted that some of us try other entrees. We settled on 4 signature dishes and my boyfriend reluctantly ordered the rigatoni. The four orders were served in the same cheese wheel, which meant that they were all half-cold, too small, and the peppercorn distribution was wildly uneven. But that was fine. The rigatoni, which was ordered with the advice of the waiter, was served in aluminum foil. The bus boy carried out a bowl which contained the rigatoni/sausage wrapped in a ball of foil. He unwrapped the foil and presented it to my boyfriend. I was appalled. He had to dump the pasta into his bowl, as precious sauce and cheese stuck to the foil. When I inquired as to the purpose of the foil, I was met with a mere "I don't know." It was so distracting and ludicrous that it tarnished the rest of the meal. The rigatoni was delicious, but we couldn't stop thinking about how it was just in foil. Why this could not have been done in the kitchen, if indeed it had something to do with the preparation, is beyond my scope of speculation. Needless to say, we will not be returning. If I want my pasta wrapped in foil, I'll have it delivered, from somewhere else.
