Quick trip

We weren't sure where to eat, but did a quick search and found this on the smart phone. After a drive through old town, we located the place and went in. It really wasn't what either of us had expected. However, the food was GREAT! My only advise is to be sure and know the specific hours for... read more

Food is simply amazing! If you have a chance to visit this restaurant make a reservation, take a date, relax and enjoy! On Fridays there is a young man that plays piano.

Ate at Boccata with relatives. Enjoyed the special of the day. Have always had a great meal there, and with the young man playing the piano on Friday made it especially a memorable meal. It's someplace not to be missed in the north part of Centralia.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here on Friday night. They told me that the place is usually packed but we got right in when we stopped by at 5:45 pm. We started with the Greek Platter that had hummus, assorted salami, grilled pita, feta, marinated artichokes and olives. It was very good. We had traditional Caesar salads with hand-made dressing...

On a warm summer evening after a day hiking at Mt.. Rainier, we were up for some pizza and beer, and Boccata did not disappoint. The starter Greek salads were excellent, nice mix of fresh ingredients for $4.00. The pizzas are build them yourself thin crust with lots of choices for base sauce, cheese and toppings. The small pizza is... More

Give the lamb a try at this great little restaurant with a main street feel. The lamb meatballs as well as the gyro with lamb were both very good. The calamari dish was very flavorful with LOTS of garlic and a nice change from the usually offered fried version.

Darren does a great job! Provides great food, nice quiet atmosphere-one of the better places to eat in Centralia. Dinner costs are a little high, but food never disappoints.

We haven't been here for more than a year and our last review of Boccatas was a five star. It is not the same place that we gave a wow and 5 stars to. We used to come for all our special occasions and recommended to all our friends and family. The menu is basic, and easily pre- prepared and... More
