Great service at the bar. Dulia knew her wines and really sold her products. We only had a pizza, but very good. Not a big restaurant, but nice ambiance. With all of the college bars throughout the area, a nice surprise

While I was out here with my husband on his business trip I met a high school friend who lives in Tempe for happy hour. I was staying at a hotel right by the famous Mill Ave and she works around the corner. She and her husband come all the time for happy hour so she suggested the Bruschetta Plank... More

Great environment, although the seating is a little cramped. The service was fantastic. They had a great beer choice and happy hour certainly didn't hurt. I got the prosciutto Alfredo, I was very hesitant because of the description, but it was fantastic. Great place to eat.

Went right after work before a movie. Sat at the bar and it was the best service I've had. It was happy hour so we had two glasses of great wine for a decent price. We split the salad and pizza and they bright salad in two plates, which I really appreciated. The pear salad was great and so was... More

We recently went to La Bocca with teenagers and friends. The pizzas were all very good! The pasta was a bit overlooked but tasty. We really likes the vibe a lot. We would definitely recommend this spot and we would go back when we were in town again. Good food, reasonably priced and great ambiance!

This is a cool restaurant that has outdoor seating and a great place to people watch. I thought the prices were needlessly high for pizza, pasta and salad, especially in a college town. Very trendy place with lots of college folk hanging out. Big wine selection. Service was good and food was good too. I probably would not return, I... More

The Ambiance is very attractive. place is very clean with contemporary look. Pizza is made to order with the toppings of your liking. There are some signature dishes also. Salads were good as also Pastas. The starters were really good. More than anything the hosts/service was very very good. They made room for people who joined a little bit late.... More

I saw an article in the hotel I was staying in about this restaurant and the pizza in the photo looked beautiful, so I drove from Scottsdale to try it. The host/server was so rude and had such attitude that my husband and I ended up leaving. He initially told me (as I had arrived alone) that I could sit... More

I've eaten here three times on visits to Tempe and like it more each time. Everything I've ordered has been delicious - pizza (the simple margarita is my favorite), salads, bruschetta, sandwich (huge!). Their homemade limoncello is amazing. The service was always been good - including two times I went when the restaurant was full. I will certainly be back!!
