Good solid choice

The best thing about this restaurant is the location. It's in the village but far enough away from Main Street to avoid the parking mess and crowds. I've never had problems parking here. The food is good, they make their own pasta and the pizza is actually very good. The portions are a bit... read more

Excellent food, wine, and service! Stopped by after a day at Dreams Park, We started out with the calamari appetizer. Very fresh and flavorful, but most importantly, they didn't overcook it! I had the RISOTTO ALLA PESCATORA as my entree. Shrimp, scallops, cherry tomatoes, and spinach in a risotto. OMG! If I could have licked my plate, I would have.... More

On the advice of a gentlemen on The Beverage Trail - we stopped here for lunch. WOW! Wish I lived in the area so that I could try everything on the menu! Food was GREAT, the décor was fun and the place was very clean!

The two of us arrived during a busy, mid-season Sunday night and were seated immediately, with no reservations. Warmly greeted by the host and server, with our drink and entree orders taken efficiently. Despite some of the rant reviews made by some highly-bothered diners, our experience at Bocca was quite pleasant. The preparation and presentation of the entrees was spot... More

The food was excellent, but the real joy of our dining experience was observing the staff. Particularly a senior couple whom our wait person confirmed at the end of the meal were the owners (or parents of the owner). Watching their interaction with the staff was a joy to watch and I have no doubt was the main reason that... More

We come here every year and have not been disappointed - basic Italian food, well prepared. Service is friendly and prompt. We shared a Caesar salad and pizza this time - nothing special, but enjoyable. We'll come again next year.

This is my second time at Bocca Osteria. I had the arugula salad with goat cheese that was very yummy, and the special for entree- battered cod dish which was a bit salty but overall it was good.
