    Really, Bocca?

    Why would you intentionally offend potential customers? We tried to walk-in for a table for 5 at 6:30 with the restaurant empty. We were told they could seat us only if I promised to be out in an hour. We walked out on principle and ate italian next door. After dinner, we came back and the place was still over half empty. There are places in the neighborhood I have been supporting for over 20 years. Now, Bocca will simply not be one of them.

    Much Needed Addition to the Neighborhood

    After reading so-so reviews on this web site, I reluctanly tried Bocca East. I was incredibly surprised at how good it was. I even went back again to make sure it wasn't a fluke. This place is fantastic, from the decor to the attentive and knowledgeable staff, right down to the amazing food. The menu (for both dinner and brunch) intrigued me, the food was perfectly prepared and presented, and the wine/cocktail list was both extensive and quite reasonable. Everyone in my party agreed with me - we will all definitely be back!

    Not recommended

    The Oxtail ravioli has 1mm of filling and everything was oversalted. The staff was for the most part rude and indifferent. Pretty awful for the price. Will never go back.

    so so bocca

    Had dinner tonight at Bocca East on 78th and 2nd. Food was okay, not spectacular. Prices not bad either. But the place was NOISY. Plus they had music playing. The walls are down to the bare brick, floors are the original wood. There's nothing to absorb the noise. Bar is right on top of the diners, too. Might try it again on rainy night. Nothing great.

    No tables for 3

    This restaurant either has hostess that has no hospitality skills, or management thinks too highly of itself. We made reservations for a party of 3 and were told to fit in a table for 2. End of story. The concept of empty and struggling restaurants was not long ago, yet this new restaurant seems to think that treating its customers like they are burdens is ok. I sincerely hope they learn to treat patrons as guests. It's not a novel idea.

    Not sure why bad reviews

    I tried this place for the first time last night and it was very good. The pasta was very fresh and tasty. The place was really cute and rustic looking. Also the prices are really reasonable. The pasta dishes are around $15/20 which isn’t bad at all. I would def go back again.
