Great pizza and service

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 !

The food truly is fantastic. The appetizer we chose is the bruschetta board which is fabulous idea; choose four toppings $12, and is a great amount for 2... More

A friend and I stayed near the airport for our last night in Phoenix area. When we looked up restaurants, several on Mill Ave came up as contenders but La Bocca won out and we were so glad it did. We started with the appy of 4 bruchetta (each picking two) and they were amazing. All four were fantastic, but... More

We hosted a group business dinner here in February 2015. The restaurant was very helpful in setting up a prearranged menu that included antipasto, salad, pasta and pizza. All at a reasonable price per person. It also included dessert.

Good choice for before the theater if you get there around 5 otherwise it's too crowded to make a show. It is also a good choice for just being on Mill. Enjoyed sharing a Med plate with friends and because that was so huge and delicious we just had salads for our main. Good wine and Sangria. Delicious salads. Pizza... More
