I love this restaurant. The last time we went there, my wife ordered the steak and I ordered the Spaghetti Vongole. The steak was about as big as her head and my pasta plate was big enough to serve a group of 3 or 4 people! Very tasty and satisfying meal! I would say this is one of the best... More

Treat your self to sea food extravaganza. The quality is next to nothing, the taste is exquisite , the atmosphere is delightful & the service is outstanding. The staff are very polite & helpful. Certainly the best seafood I'd ever had.

A lot of seafood plenty for a small family of 4. Need to stop and ask as the advertise as 25€ but when you order it,and sit down, you realize it's 25 € per person. Misleading signs posted in front of restaurant. Otherwise excellent food,courteous folks. Language is a barrier when dealing with money. Other than that people are nice... More

This seafood restaurant in the Zone Pieton attracts locals and tourist alike. Their oysters in winter time are sweet and plump. The moules mariniere is all year around in the menu, paella for 2 person is worth a try. Boullabaise is good.

We have visited B a few times - last 10/2014. The food has been the same many years - good, big portions- nothing really special. I like Creme Brulee- the first time it's size was surperise- now its bigger - huge indeed, even I got enought ;-). Okay, it's a joke that you will remember for years and tell your... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff. It was convenient and featured seafood. Both were important. Located on one of the main pedestrian walkways. We dined upstairs, room was a bit stodgy. The service was helpful. The food was fresh and well prepared. It was quite expensive. Usually better to dine away from the main tourist centers if you...

We have tried Boccacio for lunch a few times over the years. Sure it is in the tourist zone, but it always stood out from the generally dire restaurants in this area as a bit above (and pricing is much above). Last night was a dinner and what a disappointment. Oysters were fine as starters - but then, so they... More

We have chosen Boccacio because of our fiend’s advice and Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence. It was nice but it was too far away from being great. Service is fast, waiters are very polite. Restaurant is much fancier inside than outside. The choice of dishes is not too big as to be honest. We have ordered seafood spaghetti and dish... More

Three of us visited Boccacio for dinner. We shared a half litre of the house red wine which was delicious. My husband and I shared the seafood paella. It was really tasty, with a ton of seafood and was so large we couldn't finish it. My mother had a seafood platter - again, too large for her to finish but... More
