Delicious!

I live locally and enjoy dining at Bocca. The staff is always very friendly and helpful and the food is delicious, especially their pizzas.

We visited Bocca for the first time and had eight at our table. We requested separate checks and the manager ("Joe") refused to split the bill smaller than the whole table. He was even rude about stating his position and his explanation of why he would not split checks. "It would take my waiter 20 minutes to split a bill... More

Hello Sir. I found it very unfortunate that people are allowed to use Trip Advisor to express their own personal feelings about our restaurant polices, but worse yet, not state the truth about your experience. We use Trip Advisor as an excellent marketing outlet and work very hard to make sure everyone leaves happy. Thankfully Trip Advisor gives us an... More

This is a lively and busy place with an outdoor deck and a good selection of Italian menu items. The service is a bit primitive and the noise level a bit high, but the food is good (the pizza many notches above the usual), the Italian dishes especially so. It is conveniently locatd on the edge of town, away from... More

I haven't eaten in a Italian restaurant in 4 years. The gluten free selection was great. The meal was delicious!

I visited the restaurant on the Saturday of Hall of Fame Weekend after the parade and the place was crowded and parking was a challenge. I found it tough to put my name on a list to get a table because there were so many people standing around so I wish they would move the greeter closer to the front... More

Needed a restaurant good for adults and kids. It was also busy in downtown Cooperstown and didn't want to deal with finding parking. Called Bocca, and while they don't take reservations, they told us a good time to arrive and took our name since there would be 6 of us. We didn't have to wait which is always a good... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time last weekend. We were welcomed and served well, but were disappointed with our meals: the chicken, which looked huge when it arrived, turned out to be slightly undercooked and hard to get the meat from; the steaks were not as good as expected. I think the pasta dishes looked more successful.

Clean restaurant with great service and then add the phenomenal menu and this is tough to beat in Cooperstown or anywhere. Nice kids menu too. My wife said the house caesar dressing is best ever. Daughter said spaghetti was really good. I enjoyed the Tagliatelle Con Aragosta was likely best Italian plate I've ever had. My sons Spaghetti Bolognese had... More

The food and service was so good we went back twice in three days. The Pappardelle Bolognese was insane. Don't pass this up if you have the opportunity to visit.

Very friendly staff and the best food I have ever eaten in Cooperstown (I have lived here all my life and eaten pretty much everywhere I might add). The antipasto salad is simply the best I have had, ever, anywhere. My son absolutely loved making his own pizza and watching it cook in the brick oven! Highly recommend!!
