“Great Food and view”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

After having cycled from the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, Bar Bocce was a welcome respite for my aching .... legs! We sat outside looking towards the water at the sheltered upper bench rather than at the tables as they weren't as protected from the wind. There was a really nice pit fire going which would be great in the later part of the afternoon, early-evening. We started with the Calamari which was just beautiful; a little spicy and the couscous was cooking to perfection. I really enjoyed this portion; so much so we considered ordering more however our pizza came just after we devoured it so started in on that instead. The meatballs looked really good too when served at the next table. We had the Pepperoni pizza which was tasty and had extra pepperoni as my dining companion enjoys his meat! This all washed down was plenty to revive us for the ferry ride back to SanFrancisco and our return bike ride up the hills home. A really nice quiet out of the way restaurant with very friendly wait staff and an excellent water outlook. I would eat there again and again.

“Great View - Fantastic little restaurant!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I had lunch here today and I was very impressed !

The Atmosphere was brilliant - the view was fantastic, the service was impeccable! and the food was great too!
I though the menu might have been a little restrictive, but having tasted my Meatball Sliders, I would look forward to everything else on the menu !

The sliders looked a little underwhelming when they arrived, but the taste and flavours were great!(the pine nuts in the meatball worked great - they added a unique flavour and texture) It was more filling and substantial than it first appeared!

The view from this restaurant is fantastic. I could have sat their all afternoon just looking out onto the bay

The staff were great, attentive but not overbearing or rushing .. even though it was very busy and people were waiting for tables.

Great job, great atmosphere, great food, great views ! what more could you want !

“Great food! Great value!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Bar Bocce provided a fun and fabulous bayside dinner in Sausalito. The menu provided an excellent selection. The kale salad and grilled eggplant parmesian were particularly good! We found the atmosphere to be easy-going and laid-back. The food was a great value, and the bocce ball court was fun!

“ok but the paprika on the pizza, wth!”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We arrived at Bocce with our bikes under a pouring rain and were happy to find a table on an Easter day. Pleasant service, happy to not to be in a touristic place, good beer but WHY DO THEY PUT PAPRIKA ON A PIZZA??? Shrimps and paprika is like fish and lamb together, what the hell?? Pity because for the rest it was ok.

“This place is AMAZING”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Beer is good. Service is decent. Bocce court is great. Food is good. But the view. The view is amazing!

We came here two nights in a row because we loved it so much. The Friday afternoon vibe was way cooler and relaxed. Saturday night involved watching a lot of over-dressed drunk women pretending to play bocce ball, and it was kind of sad. But you can come here, ask for a blanket, and sit by the water and just hang out. We are already making plans to come back for our honeymoon.
