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.

    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.

    This is my favorite restaurant in Puerto Rico. Fresh pasta with no pretentious menu items. The focaccia is a must and don’t leave without trying the soufflé.

    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*.

    I was truly excited for this restaurant. Upon arrival, Sunday evening, I was informed of the LIST of items they didn’t have. The list was so extensive, it even included bread. I ordered the ragu, and thankfully they informed me it wasn’t braised beef meat sauce but wild boar! Seeing as how I keep kosher, I’m super appreciative for the updated but ultimately dissatisfied and had to order the pompodoro pasta dish which was far from al dente, hard as a rock, and flavorless. The special was short rib ravioli and that was amazing. I wish I could tell you about the chocolate soufflé I pre ordered (suggested by the restaurant) but that was forgotten and cancelled immediately.

    Came here with friends and we shared two appetizers and pastas and it was perfect. The risotto croquettas were incredible and the pastas were all fresh and flavorful and the portions were just right. They even made a delicious mocktail for a sober friend!

    Even though we had made a reservation, they didn’t make an effort to let us know that they were out of electricity and had closed the restaurant. Had to find out when we where already there and found it closed and empty.

    Service was subpar. Took a long time to get put check since staff barely visited us. Timing was weird. Some plates were brought out before we had finished the previous entree, but then the dessert took a long while to arrive. Most of the food was good.
