Ejoyable meal - not pretentious.

Get there early. Seems to be a local favorite. Unassuming appearance from outside. Service was attentive but not smothering. Food was a notch or two above average. Took along time for food to arrive despite our visit during a slow time. Food was a mixed bag temperature wise. Meat and veg... read more

We visited at 6pm on Saturday, and this little restaurant was quite crowded. Reservations are the best way to go. We enjoyed our specialty salads,Caprese Panini, turkey Panini, and a nice wine. Deserts are decadent. There is terrace seating, but we chose indoors. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere very pleasant, staff was friendly and helpful.

Ate here for dinner with family - group of 8. The key is to get here before the rush hour. We walked in and were seated immediately at 5pm. By 5:45, the place was packed. The service was very good until the restaurant filled up. The lights are dimmed for ambiance but it makes it hard to read the menu.... More

After work, my wife and I decided to go Italian, we were near Cooperstown, so we decided to try Bocca. We were greeted in a happy manner, and informed of the specials for the night. I went with paste Bolognese style, and meats, which was perfect and paired with Chianti. My wife enjoyed her Lobster Ravioli which light and tasteful.... More

We had dinner here during our recent trip to Cooperstown. The staff was friendly and very helpful. This place fills up fast at dinnertime and there were lots of locals. The food was fabulous. The chef is very creative and everything that we had was delicious. The pizza from the wood fired oven was perfect. We are very picky about... More

I am a Cooperstown resident and Bocca is one of our local favorite restaurants. I have never had anything but excellent meals and service. Their pizza is a wood fired European style and the pasta is homemade. They also regularly have some interesting specials. Highly recommend as a reliable great meal.

We were visiting Cooperstown, and had dinner here on out first night. Even though we called only 30 minutes before we wanted to eat, they were very accommodating with our party of 9 on a busy Friday night. The restaurant is cozy, great food and exceptional staff. Great salads, pasta and wood fired pizza. A lot of gluten free options... More

Nice variety in a fresh, comfortable space. Easy to find on the edge of town, with a nice variety of well made authentic appetizers and main course dishes. It is hard to go wrong with anything on the menu. Add a welcoming staff and it makes a great stop!

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. Nicole was our waitress, and she was great - very knowledgeable, very friendly, and very responsive. The pizza was delicious, and so was the pasta. The bread was yummy, and dessert was good too. Recommended!

Family left the Clark Sports Center late, kids needed a bite to eat. Seconds from town. Immaculate condition, friendly staff, outstanding meal. Bruschetta I had was the best I've ever had. My pasta meal was surprisingly much better than average, Cesar salad was unbelievable, all ingredients were fresh. Great meal in a great atmosphere. Will be back.
