My wife and I went there last night for Valentines dinner. The service was 6/10 the food was fair. The prices where from a different year. More like 2050 prices. The owner used the excuse of the U.S Dollar. I did not think 6 pieces of ravioli were affected by the U.S Dollar. (To Funny) I ordered would arrive at... More

Must visit foodie destination. It is in the upper range price wise, but completely worth it. Fantastic wine list as well. I know many people who came once and became regulars.

Went with another couple. The ambiance is nice and the waiters were very attentive. I had the wild boar gnocchi and others had meat dishes The food was delicious but I just found the restaurant to be overpriced Would I go again yes I would but I just found it a bit pricey

Came here for a business lunch serveral weeks back. The food was good. I ordered the fish but it seemed a little bit undercooked which made me a little nervous. Appetizers and service is pretty good.

The location is a bit odd, behind a gas station, but the food is first rate and its a nice room. Solid wine list with lots of half bottle options. The risotto is good and there are nice touches like biscotti at the end of the meal. A recommend.

I was really impressed with everything he recommended and the extensive wine... More

My friends and I had one of the best lunches ever at Oca Nera.. It was a leisurely Friday meal that went much past lunchtime and we felt welcomed and never rushed by owner Walter Di Ruscio and his staff. Creative and well plated, the food is simply delicious!! We each had something different; risotto, fish, orecchiette and gnocchi plus... More
