Fun for food and activity

Every year we plan a holiday outing with coworkers, this makes the activity unique and so much fun. The employees explain how to play and game rules, then you get a set amount of court time. It is so much fun to play bocce! The food is excellent as well, delicious Italian and large portions... read more

This place was fantastic. The place is huge and great for groups of 6 to 8 people. The Bocce courts are very well done and there is plenty of room.

A huge warehouse type of environment.....good for groups and if you are grabbing a bite before heading to the Palace. Food is only so-so...it also is rather annoying that the don't have 'real' wine glasses and expect you to drink your wine in short table glasses. Playing bocce always is a bit expensive

This is our third trip to this restaurant. The two lunches we had there were very good. the food, the service, the ambiance of a large hall. Last night was our first dinner there. As suspected, the ambiance changes swiftly when it transforms from business men's lunch to a large family gathering spot. The large hall sounds completely different when... More

Who would have thought combining food and bocce would be a good idea? Food was truly very good and very Italian, the Lamb Chops were amazing! And the bocce courts surrounding the dinning and bar area gave this place a very unique but cool feel to out! Highly recommend and Ana did a great job!

I am not an expert on Italian food, but if I were I'm sure the food at Palazzo Di Bocci would qualify as the best in the area. Everything our group tried was excellent. The servers were attentive and personable. The setting is unusual which only adds to the ambience. The restaurant sits in the middle of Bocci ball courts.... More

Just took a boatload of grandkids plus their parents to Palazzo Di Bocce and everyone loved it. The games were great and the pizza was surprisingly tasty. Gourmet even. We'll be back.

I have driven by this place for years...,(always leery of eating at a sports bar); but finally decided to give it a try for lunch. What a pleasant surprise....Nestled among row upon row of Bocce Ball courts is a great little restaurant. We ate light today, soup and salad for both my wife and myself. The mushroom soup was watery... More
