I've been a long time customer and thought it time to share my sentiments. Bocci's is a very good neighborhood Italian restaurant with a comfortable setting both inside and outside. Sundays are particularly enjoyable considering all bottles of wine under $30 are half price off. Last night my wife and started with a nice Insalata Bocci-Romaine, Cannellini Beans, Black Olives,...

We love this place! Great food, great service. Nothing we have had to eat or drink has disappointed. We especially love when the weather allows us to sit outside, it's the perfect experience then.

6:00 Saturday night: chain resturant has a 3 hour wait! Go to Trip Advisor for other options. We found the best little Italian Resturant we have been to in Years! Eggplant stack, chicken parm, veal parm, penne rustica, all perfect.. We will be back!

My wife and I had been helping our daughter move all day, so when dinner time rolled around, we were looking for a quiet, cozy place to get some pizza. We found Bocci online and headed there sight unseen. We ordered a medium pizza, two glasses of wine, and had the most relaxing evening. The server was friendly and attentive,... More

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
