Bocca is a true Roman experience that stems from simplicity and richness.

We follow traditional techniques that allow our guests to embrace the culinary experience of a classic osteria Romana. We prepare our pastas, sauces and broths daily, ensuring both freshness and quality for your meal. Our kitchen staff is trained to follow proper Roman methods such as not using cream in our dishes and serving every pasta “al dente”.

We hope our advocacy for traditionalism satisfies every guest from appetizer to desert. Thank you for considering Bocca as your next meal, we look forward to serving you soon.

    Server was so nice but… I had to flag him down twice - once for another drink and once after serving main course to ask for parmesano cheese (this should be a standard offering by a server at an Italian restaurant when serving pasta). Both times took a few minutes to get his attention and it’s a small place. I was in a corner and couldn’t get up easily to go after him or I would have! He was super nice though.

    This is the best Italian restaurant that I have visited by now. As a person that visited Rome, I can say this restaurant prepares the plates the same way as in Rome. Every time me and my wife eat in Bocca, remind us of eating in Rome.

    Bocca is one of the best italian restaurant if not the BEST RESTAURANT. It’s my favorite restaurant everything on the menu is delicious. The burrata and tiramisu are my favorite. The osobuco is delicious and their selection of wine is spectacular. Trust me if you want to go GOO SERVICE IS THE BEST. You won’t regret anything

    My Birthday. No valet parking at all. Disorganized. This is a very expensive place and it did not have a single extra consideration for the customer. Very basic. The napkins were cheap. The place has very little ambiance (needs some upkeep) and its very noisy. The food is very good. Period.

    I thought very good overall. I had 2 problems. No one answers a phone there .Wanted to know if they had parking. When you call they say to email. Then reservations had to be done thru open table and I had to give a credit card if you don’t cancel a day before they charge $10 p/p. That’s crazy. I did it but will never do again.

    Food is phenomenal — probably some of the best "authentic" Italian food you will find in the San Juan metro area. Service, on the other hand, left much to be desired. To put it bluntly: I've been served more humanly at Olive Garden. It was competent, but far from special. We expected *special*.
