Having fondly remembered many meals at Bocce's in Scottsville in days past, and having watched multiple Charlottesville restaurants try this Market Street location and then close, we weren't sure what to expect. But the space was airy and bright and the service was fleet and very friendly, and with the expectedly delicious Italian fare the whole visit was a delight.... More

Great food and wonderful ambiance... laid back, but attentive service. The room was not too noisy, which is great to find in Cville. The outdoor space makes the setting quite special.

Went to Cafe Bocce on a Saturday night during restaurant week. As we were driving there, we were looking over the special menu and the Yelp reviews. We honestly were a little concerned. The amazing wait staff and chefs put our fears to rest. After ordering a bottle of the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, all four of us ordered off the restaurant... More

Our last evening in town ended here. Sitting in the nice garden to authentic italian food combined with great service. Everthing was really good although the prices are not cheap, but worth it.

I always enjoy my time at Cafe Bocce. Their eclectic menu offers something for everyone. From the soups, salads, pastas, and of course desserts, are fresh, locally sourced and flavorful. They have a charming, albeit small courtyard as well.

I have lots of favorite restaurants, but Cafe Bocce is right up near the top! The owner Chris, Todd and the rest of the staff treat you like family. We ate inside, but they have a very nice outside patio area. As for the food, my wife and I have eaten there several times since my first review, and it... More

Delicious authentic Italian food, great service, calm atmosphere, all marks of an outstanding restaurant. We eat here every time we visit Charlottesville. A treaty not to be missed!

We enjoyed a lovely meal last evening at this hidden treasure in Charlottesville. The wine the owner suggested was great, the service was first rate, and the food was impressive. We happened upon the restaurant on the night before our visit and wanted to try it because we loved the cozy outside patio. Having been to many of the area... More

This place has very nice ambience, a good wine menu, and does some dishes very well, like the salmon. But avoid pastas and gnocchi dishes that are made to American standards, not Italian. The pasta dishes are inexplicably made with either dried pasta or "fresh" that has been allowed to dry, so that it does not at all have that... More

This could possibly the worst place in Charlottesville. Had an awful meatball sub here that made me sick for days. If you like really bad food and terrible service, this place is for you.
