La Boca is an Italian restaurant but not like the normal ones. When you get there you are given a card, which you use for ordering. They have an open kitchen, salads, pizzas, pastas, desert. You go to the kitchen counter and make your order, you wait while it gets cooked in front of you and you take it away to your table. Very good food.

Pick your own pasta, salad etc. which is cooked freshly in front of you and the cost is put onto a Card which at the end of the evening you take to the cash desk where they will swipe your card and tell you what you owe. Lovely sitting in the square in the warm weather.

Great value pasta and pizza. Avoid busy times as the self-service system breaks down when overloaded with too many people, and it turns into a workout just to get your food and get it back to your table. Quiet times are best and better to enjoy the nice ambience.

ok, so this is not your "sit, wait, order, and be served" kind of restaurant... nor expensive, nor especially expensive decor etc...
so how can it be good?

well, you will just have to try it
- its fast: you pick a card, go to the cook, tell him what you want, and get it cooked in front of you
- its fresh: pizza is freshly opened in front of you, pasta is freshly done few hours ago, and cooked in front of you to your desire, salads freshly done.
- its cheap: well, like ikea it follows the filosophy of you pay for what you get, and since hte cook is the only one doing the serving, you dont pay that much... only the ladies come to take the dirty stuff once you are done.but you wont care, believe me.
- and the deserts are nice too...

my favourite part is the freshness of the ingredients, and especially the pasta which is hand made in the restaurant itself 2 times a day.
the next favourite part, is to get the chief cook (forgive me, i forgot your name!! i know i am unforgivable...) to share the secrets for real italian carbonara, or the right type of pasta to use for a tomato based shrimp pasta, and other secrects, and then watch him perform and steal his tricks :) - i did , and my carbonara has since improved 60-80%!
ok, i guess you wont get this all the time, especially on high traffic time, but its worth it!

so best value for money all around, and great food, ok so its not your cozy litle restaturant with nice couches, but who cares!

The food is fantastic!

The decoration top class, although this supposed to be a type of a fast-food restaurant. However, the only thing reminding you of fast food is the fact that you can walk around and order from the many chefs what you are after.

The prices for the quality & quantity of food are reasonable.

It is an ideal place for all the family, for all the ages.
