I found myself in the area alone and needed to grab lunch - something fresh and ambient. Bocci fit the bill. Variety in the menu. Reasonable prices, including lunch specials. The Cali Wrap was super fresh. Perfect!

My mom and I have been enjoying lunch at Bocci's for several years, usually after several hours of shopping at the nearby mall. I moved away from Durham three years ago but was recently in town for family events. Mom and I jumped at the chance to return to Bocci's. The menu is more than decent and reasonably priced. We...

We went to Bocci on a Friday night about 6:30 pm and it was packed. We put our names in and waited about 35 minutes for a table. It was appropriately appointed and not fancy, but attractive. The menu is extensive and varied. After we ordered, the food came out really fast. We all had our salads in no time... More

We've been to Bocci many times, mostly in nice weather, because of their great outdoor seating. That continues to be perhaps their best attribute. We find their food to be nothing special, and -- more than once -- our pizza has been so overdone that it was practically black on the bottom. The spinach ricotta balls, however, are the exception...

We ended up at Bocci in Durham at a friend's recommendation. It's in a strip mall, and we had fairly low expectations. Our expectations were far exceeded. Service was knowledgeable and friendly, but the best was the food: outright delicious. I had the chef's featured homemade ravioli--which was acorn squash; it was incredible. I started with the eggplant" stax"--lightly breaded... More

I'm not sure where the pictures posted are from because they do not look like they're from the Bocci trattoria on Fayetteville Road in Durham to me at all. The food is great, with reasonable prices. I've never had the pizza, but I have had several pasta dishes, wine selections, and a canoli. Usually the wait is also reasonable, even... More

From the minute you walk in, you can tell that your meal is going to be good. The atmosphere is casual and very friendly. The menu has so much to choose from. The apps are great. The pizza is fantastic and great for sharing. The pastas are also amazing. I had never been here so it was a great surprise... More

A nice Italian place with excellent pasta, salads, and amazing pizza. Try the Nonna's pizza if you like a square pizza with a LOT of garlic!. The pasta dishes are enormous--enough for two meals. Reasonably priced, and outside seating.

The food at this restaurant has been so superior in the past that we have ignored the fact that the wait staff are so poorly trained but our dinner on Friday was a disaster from the time we walked in to the time we paid our bill. It will be sometime before we go back, if ever. Untrained staff is... More

The rustic Italian pizzeria... where good food and conversation flows, but not at Bocci! We called ahead on a Friday night to make a reservation, but the hostess said that they do not take reservations and the wait is 20 minutes. Since the restaurant we were originally considering in the Southpoint area had an hour long wait, we decided to... More
