We are a Medditerranean restaurant in the heart of historic downtown Centralia. We offer market style lunch 5 days a week and a fabulous sit down dinner menu 4 days a week. We feature live jazz piano on the first and third Friday of every month. We pride ourselves on serving authentic Mediterranean dishes using hand-selected meat, seafood and produce. Boccata offers a moderately priced wine list featuring some local wines as well as many from Italy, France, Spain, and select Mediterranean Islands.

We stopped in for a late lunch & were happy to have it Not crowded which was a very good thing since the wait for our order for 4 people (3 of which were the same) was fairly long. However, when the food is worth it, I certainly don't have a problem with that. Unfortunately, this was not the... read more

I can't really wrap my head around the excellent reviews for this restaurant compared to my experience eating there. It's average at best. I love Greek and Italian food so I was super excited to eat there and especially to eat some good seafood. Once there I was told that the only options for seafood would be covered in cayenne...

If Boccata weren't 25 miles away, we'd dine there more often. For this special occasion, our 26th wedding anniversary, we made the trip happily. The pork loin with vegetables was full of flavor, speckled with lots of herbs. The lentil soup and salad preceding were perfect. The wine, selected with the help of the server, was just the right balance... More

This is a small family run eatery in downtown Centralia. We came without reservation, and the inner part of the restaurant was full. We sat in the front part where apparently local customers came in to order take out. After we made our order, we waited about 30 minutes or so for our food. In the meantime, we could enjoy... More

I read Trip Advisor reviews before suggesting that we eat at Boccatta. We arrived without reservations at about 7:30 pm. They were busy. As others noted it is a small operation, the owner waited on us. We waited about10 minutes to be acknowledged after entering, another 15 minutes after we arrived to be seated. Another 10 before we had menus.... More

This is a family run deli/restaurant, pasta, pizza were good, just waiting for the food takes too long,about an hour, not enough helper, just one man and one woman waiting on all tables. Pretty busy place,could be better with extra waitress.

This is a deli! I was expecting pasta dishes. The food is good, we had the special so that won't be on the regular menu. Only salami type choices for meat. The fries are nice and garlicky. So if you go here it's just a sand with shop.

My husband and I ate here for a date night, while on a marriage retreat. I have to say, the food was incredible! It was very flavorful with authentic taste. I highly recommend eating at this restaurant if you enjoy Mediterranean/Italian food.

If you should ever have occasion to be this way (and gawd knows I plan to never again have occasion to be this way but I don't know how you roll) stop here for lunch or dinner. Trust me on this. Yes, I am giving a shout out to a place I never intend to dine at again. It was... More

Boccata is a wonderful place to enjoy a yummy deli-style sandwich for lunch or, later, a delicious "grown-up" type of dinner. It's a great place to come, to have a quiet dinner and just enjoy the food and good dinner conversation.
