Average food, good portion but poor service as 2 staff for 50 people. Nothing special, food is not purely Italian but a blend.

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us. Unfortunately, we are not always able to predict the occupancy, hence the limited number of service.

The steak was amazing, but our pasta wasnt so good it didnt had a lot of flavours…. The waiter is really good and super fast and super friendly! Although at end when we had to pay he asked if we wanted to add the service...charge aswell wich I thought it was a bit strange.. but rest was all good cozy place!More

Nice modern setting and convenient location just off the main square. Food was average (we got Spaghetti carbonara). Service was poor - waited 20mins before we get served.

Wow what a find! This little gem is tucked away off the main square in Kraków, we found it on a whim when searching for somewhere for dinner. The restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful, a very chic expensive feel to it and very friendly, welcoming...staff. The food was excellent and service was great. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Kraków!More

We visited Boccanera for the first time in August 2021 for a family lunch. The place has a marvelous design but is understaffed. Even though the place was not full, our waitress seemed exhausted, and we had to wait each time quite a bit until...she was available to attend us. As a starter we ordered a plate of Italian cheeses and charcuterie to share – it was fantastic-big and delicious, with homemade little breads! For the main we ordered: - pizzas for children which were nice but not super-delicious - beef lasagna which was terrible (dry and no real taste in it) - beef pasta (pappardelle con manzo) which was very tasty and interesting - something you will not get in a typical Italian restaurant in Poland - pasta with shrimps (tagliolini con gamberetti) - very nice and fresh. To sum up, I recommend Boccanera for the atmosphere and food, but the food is uneven in taste.More

Loved this restaurant! Food, as well as service, were amazing! Also, prices were pretty low, having in mind, that the restaurant is in the old town. Highly recommended!
