Unique but wuaint

Who would have thought combining food and bocce would be a good idea? Food was truly very good and very Italian, the Lamb Chops were amazing! And the bocce courts surrounding the dinning and bar area gave this place a very unique but cool feel to out! Highly recommend and Ana did a great job!

This is our third trip to this restaurant. The two lunches we had there were very good. the food, the service, the ambiance of a large hall. Last night was our first dinner there. As suspected, the ambiance changes swiftly when it transforms from business men's lunch to a large family gathering spot. The large hall sounds completely different when... More

I am not an expert on Italian food, but if I were I'm sure the food at Palazzo Di Bocci would qualify as the best in the area. Everything our group tried was excellent. The servers were attentive and personable. The setting is unusual which only adds to the ambience. The restaurant sits in the middle of Bocci ball courts.... More

Just took a boatload of grandkids plus their parents to Palazzo Di Bocce and everyone loved it. The games were great and the pizza was surprisingly tasty. Gourmet even. We'll be back.

I have driven by this place for years...,(always leery of eating at a sports bar); but finally decided to give it a try for lunch. What a pleasant surprise....Nestled among row upon row of Bocce Ball courts is a great little restaurant. We ate light today, soup and salad for both my wife and myself. The mushroom soup was watery... More

They serve good and fairly authentic Italian dishes, you even get your red wine out of a small regular glass not a fancy wine glass. The food is good, vegetarian/vegan choices are very limited. I would have given the restaurant a 4 if they offered any. The Bocce is a lot of fun with a group, actually a lot more... More

The food & service were both terrible. This could be such an awesome place but unfortunately it is overpriced and under staffed.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit with us. I wish you would have let us know while you were here so we could resolve the situation right then. Although it is no excuse we did have a short staffing issue that night which regretfully did cause a few issues. I sincerely apologize and invite you to contact... More
