Great service. The food was good, it was a busy night, the patio is really packed, I was with my kids, and actually would have taken a seat inside, but was never offered that choice, even though there was no one in the actual restaurant. We ended up with a spot on the patio which was still nice after a... More

Everything about La Bocca was looking bad. It took a bit for us to finally get a waitress. Than I ordered the Cioppino and asked to make sure it wasn't too heavy on the garlic. I was assured it wasn't. Then it came and was inedibly garlicky. Apparently the seafood was sauteed in garlic. Our waitress, Caitlyn (sp?), stepped right... More

We stopped here for a light bite, it was ok, but nothing special. Pricey for what we had. We had two antipasti platters, which had pickles out of a jar. No bread unless you wanted to pay extra... It was ok, but not more.

Food was all ok when it finally arrived. Portions were small. Our starter arrived after our main courses though! Drinks took forever to arrive too. The service was friendly and helpful. Looking at other trip advisor reviews, I think we had a reasonable experience in comparison to some. Wouldn't go again.

The music and television from the place next door spilled over into the outdoor eating area, (don't know if they had indoor seating), which made it impossible to hear or carry conversation with others at the table. My meal was not prepared as ordered and was not delivered until nearly every else at the table were finished. I ate as... More

Came by here for some dessert. The gelato is alright. Sampled a few and nothing was incredible. The caramel Oreo is good, but I have had better flavours. The real problem is the service. When asked if we could get the two flavours in seperate cups the lady said sure I'll do that for you. Then charged us for two... More

Food was ok, couldn't understand why it was so busy as it was nothing special. I wouldn't go back, there is much better for similar money near by.

This was a wonderful place to sit and relax. We tried a couple iced drinks that the server recommended. She was right. Delicious!

Visited with the family. Had seared salmon which was lovely, spaghetti bolognese was enjoyed by others and the starters looked good.

Description
La Bocca serves Italian cuisine in a sunny Mediterranean style setting with great wines and cocktails from BC, Italy and beyond.
Situated in the heart of the Whistler Village Square, La Bocca enjoys the best location in town, right in the centre of it all. We have been locally owned and operated since 1986.
Our dining room offers a Mediterranean setting, with private sections suitable for groups small and large. Our sought-after heated patio is open year round and offers a great chance to be part of the village atmosphere, with incredible views of the surrounding mountains.
Serving pastas, pizzas, frittatas and sandwiches for brunch, and delicious Italian entrees for dinner, La Bocca is open seven days a week.
We look forward to hosting you!
