Description: La Bocca serves Italian cuisine in a sunny Mediterranean style setting with great wines and cocktails from BC, Italy and beyond. Situated in the heart of the Whistler Village Square, La Bocca enjoys the best location in town, right in the centre of it all. We have been locally owned and operated since 1986. Our dining room offers a Mediterranean setting, with private sections suitable for groups small and large. Our sought-after heated patio is open year round and offers a great chance to be part of the village atmosphere, with incredible views of the surrounding mountains. Serving pastas, pizzas, frittatas and sandwiches for brunch, and delicious Italian entrees for dinner, La Bocca is open seven days a week. We look forward to hosting you!

This is a relatively small restaurant with a large outdoor patio. It was quite empty when we arrived at 7 pm but it might have been because it was a rainy Monday night. The service was good and they were also good about recommendations but it seemed that they liked everything. We found the wine quite expensive and the one bottle that we chose was not available. Had the beef short ribs which came with potato and vegetables. It was very good. Portion side was on the smaller size; presentation was lovely.

Hi Emma,
We are truly sorry that you did not have the best experience possible at La Bocca.
I understand your concerns and we have taken steps to address them, including upgrading our cocktail list to a wonderful new list for the summer.
We held a staff meeting last week, at which we addressed the need for clear communication with customers, and even the possible patronizing tone that was apparent with your children.
We do hope that you will join us again in the future, we would be honored to host you again.

Happy Travels!
Brenton

Menu looked good & located in middle of whistler village. Great place to people watch

We waited for quite a while to be seated, place was not even a quarter full.

Choose a table near the front & heater which was nice.

Not a single server came to take our order/drinks for over twenty minutes. We walked out & went next door & was served promptly

Sure the place is great, but we weren't wasting our time waiting to try it out

Pretty disappointing

Hello,
Thank you for your review. We are horribly sorry you were neglected that way in our establishment.
Our goal is to always serve our customers with the utmost efficiency, so it is obvious that we have failed you, and put you out in your wait for some brunch. It is extremely unfortunate, and we realize the time and hunger this cost you.
Once again, our absolute appologies, we do hope to be able to have you join us in the future, where we can make things right.
All the best in your travels,
Brenton S.
