I have been there 4 times now and the food has always been good. Make sure to try the homemade cookies they are out of this world.

The owner is an excellent cook. The specials are amazing. This is a small hometown restaurant that shouldn't be missed if you are in Centralia.

We heard there was a good Greek restaurant in centralia on a visit to GWL. We stopped by to get food to bring back to the lodge. We learned the only lamb they served was ground because they lack a spot to roast it. Most items on the menu were pricey and we did not get a sense would be... More

We needed a stop on our way up I-5 and hadn't been to Centralia for a while. Trip Advisor helped us find this gem. It is counter service and we saw people eating a pizza but there were no options on the board above. The guy at the front counter seemed kind but a little overwhelmed. There are plenty of... More

We weren't sure where to eat, but did a quick search and found this on the smart phone. After a drive through old town, we located the place and went in. It really wasn't what either of us had expected. However, the food was GREAT! My only advise is to be sure and know the specific hours for lunch and... More

Food is simply amazing! If you have a chance to visit this restaurant make a reservation, take a date, relax and enjoy! On Fridays there is a young man that plays piano.

Ate at Boccata with relatives. Enjoyed the special of the day. Have always had a great meal there, and with the young man playing the piano on Friday made it especially a memorable meal. It's someplace not to be missed in the north part of Centralia.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here on Friday night. They told me that the place is usually packed but we got right in when we stopped by at 5:45 pm. We started with the Greek Platter that had hummus, assorted salami, grilled pita, feta, marinated artichokes and olives. It was very good. We had traditional Caesar salads with hand-made dressing...

On a warm summer evening after a day hiking at Mt.. Rainier, we were up for some pizza and beer, and Boccata did not disappoint. The starter Greek salads were excellent, nice mix of fresh ingredients for $4.00. The pizzas are build them yourself thin crust with lots of choices for base sauce, cheese and toppings. The small pizza is... More

Give the lamb a try at this great little restaurant with a main street feel. The lamb meatballs as well as the gyro with lamb were both very good. The calamari dish was very flavorful with LOTS of garlic and a nice change from the usually offered fried version.
