Rachel was our waitress for the evening at an outdoor table. She was very attentive and extremely helpful.

My wife and I were visiting Cooperstown when the power went out. Disappointed that we could not eat at one of the village restaurants, we were headed south out of town when we saw that the power was on at this place. We were promptly...seated and were fortunate enough to have Rachel as our server. As the place filled up and she took on more tables, she continued to be very attentive. The chopped salad was a little too salty and my pasta Bolognese could have used a little more flavor, but the tuna ahi appetizer was fabulous, all accompanied by good cocktails and wine.More

Thank you Google Maps for leading us to Bocca Osteria in Cooperstown, NY yesterday. Atmosphere, service, and food was perfect! Makaela (sp?) was just the right level, and genuine quality, of friendly and helpful. I had the Funghi Formaggi pizza beautifully assembled and baked with...fresh and shredded mozzarella, smoked gouda, portabello, porcini, truffled mushrooms, parmigiano reggiano, garlic and virgin olive oil. Finished by sharing, both, their, delectable, (not from frozen) tiramisu and creme brulee. I wish we could get this quality Italian food back home!!More

Our experience was amazing until we went inside. Our waitress was Casandra. She was absolutely perfect. She was friendly and had some good laughs with our son Hayden. I took my son inside to use the rest room and she ran our card. As soon...as she wakes away the girl behind the bar and another female had called her a “fake bi**ch” and were picking on her. If this is how your staff treat her I am not sure why she puts up with it. She came back out and said thank you to us. She had auto tipped us because we had 7 people in our party. We told her she was worth more than a 23 dollar tip and we gave her another 32 dollars. We told her she was a delight and we would leave a review for her. If you are looking for a great server and looking for a wonderful experience ask for her.More

This place could be outstanding. The food (we each had a pannini) was good, the atmosphere was very nice. Seemed to be clean enough. What ruined it was our service. We were seated (within the estimated time window of 15-20 minutes), but then, we waited...20 more minutes to be acknowledged by our server. During that 20 minutes, we saw groups get seated, have their drink orders taken and delivered, and their meal orders taken. When our server finally came to the table, we mentioned that other groups arrived later than us and were already served. Her reply: "I'm kinda busy". This was 1/2 hour before the restaurant closed - there were 7 empty tables within view, and they weren't seating anyone new... So that started us off poorly. When our meals arrived, our server dropped half of my wife's sandwich on the floor and we waited another 15 minutes for it to be remade. She did leave the half that survived. The second sandwich was much better than the first (first was dry), but by then, I was done eating. No offer to refill my glass, or get another drink.More

Food was mediocre and service was slow. We sat outside and it seems like they need to fix the doors to make it easier for servers to get in and out.

We were looking for al fresco dining after a matinee at the Glimmerglass Festival. Bocca filled the bill beautifully. The pasta was homemade and delicious. The service was outstanding. We'll be back.

A truly outstanding dining experience. While in Cooperstown - Bocca Osteria is a must do. Great menu, incredible pastas and salads, and very friendly staff. We are here for the week and will go back for a couple more great dinners.

One star review (Terrible ) on a take away order because you ordered your 13 year old a kids meal and he didn’t have enough to eat. Just order him a meal and you wouldn’t have this problem. Very unfortunate that TripAdvisor let’s people leave...More

This place serves the best pizza ever. I honestly went back twice in three days to get the same exact pizza. Others ordered pasta and it was delicious as well.
