Bocce & Lunch Magnifico!

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

I come for lunch all the time and lunch is great! (ask for Skylar) I finally gave the dinner time a try. At first I assumed it was closed but I was welcomed when i came in the door. I had the Lasagna and it was fantastic. Great salad great service! Gary was very nice and helpful. Strongly suggest coming

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 atmosphere unique and while the food isn't exceptional it's good and a whole lot better than anything near by. Service was great.

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

I didn't eat here, but I played bocce and had drinks with a group of 11 and we had a great time. My group met at the bar before our reservation and the same bartender took us to our two courts, explained the bocce rules, and took our drink orders throughout. I enjoyed the house wine. At the end, everyone... More

I love to play bocce here, but the food is a big disappointment. I'd recommend drinking and bocce only. None of the food seemed home made, lots of frozen and reconstituted fare. The atmosphere and service were good--the food is just not worthy of going out of your way.

We went there with a team of around 20 people. The Italian food was really good. Though this was not the main reason we were taken there. To play the mysterious Bocce...every one of was were very skeptical about and it sounded very boring in the beginning. But the competition kicked in very soon and the evening turned out be... More

I was very happy and satisfied with my meal. I liked the way you can choose your own style sauce, pasta and add-ons. Maybe for a pasta meal the pricing was a little high, but no complaints from me and I am MOST critical of Italian cuisine. Now having said that I did not have a red sauce, I had... More
