This was my first visit to this restaurant. Very nice Italian wine selections by the glass. Interesting menu. My grilled salmon was excellent and perfectly cooked. Very casual atmosphere. Attentive service. Recommend it if you are in the Union Square area.
The staff was excellent, friendly and knowledgable.
The food was brought out timely and it was hot and very good!!
Food and service was excellent! I would come back again! Loved that there was a coat rack so you aren’t surrounded by your coats while eating.
It was a very quiet night but the food was excellent and the service was terrific. The staff was also extremely friendly and helpful.
Excellent attentive service and delicious food and drink! The best espresso martini I’ve ever had - frisée salad w butternut squash and pancetta to die for ! My friend and I both had house made pasta dishes, decent portions - I had the classic cacio e pepe which was so delicious and I love that they prepare it table side! One downside is the price points are a bit high - $25 for my dish, but I understand prices everywhere have shot up and I’m happy to support NYC neighborhood restaurants during this tough time.
Focaccia bread for the table w sun dried tomato & olive oil dip was so fresh and delish!
Wait staff super friendly and helpful - I really hope they survive through Covid (we were the only table the entire 2 hrs we dined) bc it’s such a neighborhood gem and I can’t wait to return!
Great! I'll be back as often as I can. Love it
The Cacio e pepe is to die for
The food was excellent! We had the radicchio salad, artichoke antipasto, house Negronis, and two homemade pastas (fettuccine and pappardelle). Everything was truly fantastic! It was a great start to the New Year’s celebrations.
Absolutely fabulous food, ambiance and service. They serve amazing martinis as well. A must the next time you’re in New York.
Everything was great. Food was delicious. Had the prosciutto and burrata, rigatoni all amatriciana and the branzino. Highly recommend.
Real Italian food. Everybody was nice and welcoming. I recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants great Italian food in a quiet and cozy place
We had a wonderful holiday dinner. The place is tastefully decorated for the holidays. Service was outstanding. We started with the steak tartare special. It was excellent. Like the mixed in avocados. We both had the branzino entree and loved it. Fish cooked perfectly with crunch to the skin. The bed of kale and chickpeas was also very nice. Will return.
Everything was perfect. The food was outstanding
Service was great.
Drinks at bar was great as well.
Great experience! They accommodated us for a friends surprise birthday party and even took our group’s photos and gave us no hassle about storing the cake. They even recommended places to go after to enjoy the rest of our night, it was overall a wonderful experience and the food was delicious so we’ll definitely be back!
Had the time of my life with Safi.
Had a lovely lunch at Bocca Cucina and will definitely be back! The cauliflower appetizer was AMAZING! And the drinks were fantastic too! I opted for the butternut squash soup special for my appetizer as I didn’t want anything heavy for lunch and it was just okay. Not bad, but not amazing. My husband got a gnocchi special and he liked his a lot. We will definitely be back, but getting the cacio e Pepe next time for sure!
It's aight. Service was lovely. Food decent. Not inexpensive.
Food was delicious and server very attentive. Bartender made a delicious mojito and ambience was nice for a small restaurant.
The pasta dishes were excellent. Not sure about the lemon sorbet with the tuna :(
Great place for a quick and delicious brunch.
Food was out of this world and staff is friendly!!
Really great food! Fun ambiance! Service was great too!! Will definitely go back!!
Bocca has always been home away from home, a place where everyone is invited. Service is unmatched by any other place. The best part is the bartender Erik he’s Electrifying and personality matches his drinks and his service
The food is absolutely delicious, from appetizers right down to the scrumptious deserts. An absolute jewel of a spot.
Food was tasty but the service was not great. It took about 15 minutes for a waiter to come and take our drink order once we were seated. It was difficult to get someones attention throughout the meal.
Amazing food and ambiance.
Amazing dishes. The Ahi Tuna was so unique in flavors, outstanding. Try the Branzino
Everything was perfect from soup to nuts. We were there two and a half hours and no one rushed us out.
Amazing fresh pasta and very helpful service 👌
My only quibble was that they were too aggressive about clearing the table when one person was still eating.
My chicken wasn’t cooked through. Waitress was too busy to respond appropriately , just took the plate away without a word.
Food was amazing! plus the ambiance and service 👌🏻
Food was sub par. The clams in vongole pasta were borderline stale. Totally not what I expected based on all the rave reviews.
LOVED the food and ambience and service
Food was excellent (especially the Cacio e Pepe) and staff was fantastic. Also a great atmosphere.
They served no bread!!
the food was good and the place was nicely decorated lights were very on tone to fit the vibe of the area, the service was good servers are very friendly and try to answer any questions you have to the best of their ability, the bathrooms are nice and decorated but they could use some soap
Lovely place,I felt like I was in Italy having brunch
New owners, new additions to the menu, but just as delicious as ever. So happy to see them open and busy. Octopus appetizer was outstanding. I had the squid ink gnocchi which was the best I have ever eaten. My husband had the paperdelle with lamb ragu which was his favorite for years and last night did not disappoint.
Great evening! Food was fantastic.
Excellent!! Food, service, drinks from beginning to end. Very attentive from the minute we walked in, everyone acknowledged my daughter's birthday and made her feel so special. The fettuccine with the black truffle sauce was outstanding. Have already recommended this place to friends. We will definitely be gong back soon!
