“Great value pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Cheap and cheerful...in a good way.

Friendly server, limited menus but that's why it is always busy

As previous reviews say, choose your size, pasta, sauce, sides.

Served in noodle takeaway boxes. Quick, fresh and great value. 3.50 for small box which is loads for a lunch.

This is more of a takeaway with some seats than a restaurant. Only about 12 seats (stools at high bench)

V good value

“Excellent value and tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Went with my mum of 60. Roughly 5 euro a large portion. Staff were welcoming and friendly. They even offered to explain menu and were really helpful. Italian food on a budget.
Great for vegetarians.Takeaway or sit in like we did at the high long dining tables.
Food very good quality and tasty. Penne pasta with ham and cheese was great but particularly nice was the vegetarian veg with spicy tomato. Clean and welcoming.Will be going again.

“Great Value, Tasty Food in the Centre of Bruges”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I'm a semi-regular visitor to Brugge and have eaten in Bocca several times. Love the concept...basically pick a size (small, medium, large) and choose your sauce and any extras. Within a few minutes your meal is served up in box and ready to eat...whether takeaway or on the huge table within the 'restaurant'. Ciabatta/rolls are also available to buy, along with your usual beverage options.

Bocca is hugely popular, particularly with local students. Great value, great food and great service.

“Best place in Bruges on a budget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We were struggling to find good food on a budget in Bruges during our recent visit, until this place was recommended to us. SUPER cheap (3.50 euros for small, 5.50 for a large), great service (which is rare in Bruges), and amazingly delicious. Many different sauces and whole wheat pasta available as well. My favourite was the green pesto. This place is almost always busy with locals so that says a lot. Perfect for backpackers.

“Best take away in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

If you're looking for a take away, or just a quick meal (pastry)
this is the place to be! They have their own 'brand of sauce', a very nice one!
To me, this is my absolute favourite!
you can have every sauce with or without little pieces of bacon.
€3.50 for a small box, € 4.50 for a medium and € 5.50 for a big one,
which is allright, not very cheap, but not too expensive too.
You can have different kinds of sauce, and every week they have a specialty.
Just go there and find out which one you like best!
