Sat at the bar of this great find of a restaurant

Nikki, bartender, was very attentive and charismatic. She was very knowledgeable about the wine list and menu, a real pro. Fettucini Alfredo was excellent, served with outstanding garlic bread. Caeser salad was average but the Super Tuscan wine was memorable.

My husband and I sat at the bar for an early evening cocktail and small plate dinner. We had numerous appetizer plates that were very, very tasty. Unique to anything else we have had in other places. Thoroughly enjoyed our 'find' in Tempe. We were in Phoenix for baseball games, but decided to take the light rail out to Tempe... More

Two of us had dinner on the patio. Service was friendly and prompt. While the menu reads well, our pizzas and appetizers were pretty average and lacked any pizzazz.

Mill St is a fun street, but it is geared to college students - lots of bars, cheap eats, fast food, and chain establishments. Hard to find a something quieter and more upscale - at least until you reach the front door of La Bocca! Like passing thru a portal to another world. It has a simple, almost rustic decor... More

Went here for lunch today while in town for a convention. Wonderful meal. Was impressed with the service. The Hostess, I think her name was Nicole, was knowledgeable about the available beers and made a great recommendation as to the beer. I ordered a Caesar Chicken Salad and it was great. The food was great I while definitely come back... More

We arrived here about 11:15 on a Saturday morning and were not the first ones there. The service was great and pizza even better. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had a great time here. The Bruschetta Planks are fantastic, very creative and delicious. The service was top notch and the outdoor seating is the nest way to go. The Pizza is very good also.

One of the best restaurants in Tempe, the service is excellent as usual in US. I taste different pizzas, all excellent and with fresh products. The restaurant is well placed, in downtown Tempe and the price are very low. I definitively recommend this restaurant !
