“Great Surprise!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

The hubby and I, and another couple went to Bocca for dinner on the last night of our trip to Cooperstown for the BB HofF. This little place was quite the culinary surprise! For an appetizer I had the crostini- thinly sliced flank steak on crostini's with balsamic reduction and goat cheese. Very Yummy. For dinner I had the red snapper crusted with pistachio's and wild rice. I was fantastic and the presentation was beautiful-complete with a flower. For dessert I had the blue berry ravioli's - small puff pastry "raviolis" filled with fresh blue berries deep fried and dusted with powdered sugar. They were also served with homemade vanilla gelato and homemade whipped cream. a very nice job by a small place in the middle of nowhere.

“Awesome Italian food and local beer”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Just traveled through Cooperstown, NY on our way from Vermont to Washington DC and back. Happened upon the Bocca Osteria on the way down and made it a point to return to the Bocca on our return. The food was great. Delicious pizza (in lieu of bread) came with our beer, wonderful salads (fig and arugula; special salad with sushi style tuna), and great entrees, including seasonal specials like squash ravioli. The beer was from the local, Belgium-style, microbrewery, Ommagang. The Ommagang is on tap and a more extended selection in bottles. We loved the Hennepin.

We travelled off-season in early November. I'm guessing that during the summer months, spring and fall, it would be good to get a reservation. Prices were very reasonable. Staff were very nice.

Came here after an afternoon in Cooperstown. We were visiting our daughter at college and read about Bocc Osteria here. Excellent brick oven pizza. Super fresh delicious food. Would go back!

“YUM!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Bocca has that homey feel to it because the staff and food make you want to stay. The prices are very low for the excellent quality and quantity of food you receive. We were able to walk there from our B & B, so we ate there two nights in a row. It was just as great the second time, too.

“Top notch Italian”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Went with 5 couples and shared many dishes. Interesting specials and tasty entrées and salads. My friends thanked me for finding & picking this restaurant. Also they accomodated a reservation goof on a very busy night.
