I have been here many, many times and the food and service is always excellent. The owner is super friendly and loves to talk to the customers. Every dish I have tried has been excellent and I will return many times.

We were delighted to dine at La Bocca. The meal was excellent. The garlic knots were exceptional, with a light marinara sauce; followed by perfectly cooked calamari. Cooking calamari that is not rubbery, should be commended, and this had a nice coating as well. I got the Shrimp Parmesan -- breaded shrimp with a light sauce and smothered in mozzarella... More

Made reservations a week in advance for Valentine's Day. Actually talked to the owner who neglected to inform us that they were doing a special menu. On the night of Valentine's Day, we began to call an hour in advance to make sure they were open due to the bad weather in the area. At first, the phone rang and... More

We dined here with 11 guests on Friday night and were welcomed warmly by the owner. The food was seasoned perfect, came out fast and the service was top notch. Great wine selection and a perfect location. If we come back to town, La Bocca will be our first stop!

For a part of 7 only four dinner rolls were brought out. Water and drinks were refilled only once in the three hour... More

My wife treated me to lunch for my Birthday on a Monday around 1:00. The waitress seemed put out that we came in at that time but served us anyway. The food and drink did not disappoint except we did not receive any bread until our entree arrived. This was after 2 glasses of wine and 2 salads and didn't... More

My daughter was in from out of town and we stopped in for dinner. We both enjoyed our food and had a wonderful time. I have been there before in the summer and the windows were left open which was very nice. I have been there in the winter and sitting by the door, not as pleasant.
