Both food and prices were excellent. The wine prices were exceptionally reasonable and adequately varied. But our waitress seemed annoyed to be waiting tables. She bristled at our inquiries about the wine and was irritated that we ordered dessert. I would order take-out or sit at the bar to take advantage of the menu and avoid the wait staff.

My husband and I went to Bocca Lupo last week. I'm about 9 months pregnant and we wanted to eat there before we had the baby. Our experience was unpleasant from the beginning. When we arrived, we asked three different people how long the wait was before anyone returned to tell us. Once we were seated, my husband ordered wine and the waitress began to leave when I had to catch her to ask for water. She rolled her eyes as if pregnant women only drink water. Later, our waitress became blatantly annoyed when I asked whether the cheese in my dish was pasteurized. She snapped at me about how it is illegal for restaurants to serve food with unpasteurized cheese, which is simply not true. Then, when I asked whether the meat in my dish was smoked or cooked, she informed me that they don't serve raw meat to customers. My questions were typical pregnancy questions and I did not understand why she felt aggressive when I asked them. On the other hand, the food was good--though not fantastic. But I would not go back after being treated that way.

I live just a couple of blocks from this place but barely go there. The food is pretty good (especially meatballs) but service is hit or miss. One night we had a good time and service was great, another night, our waitress let us know right away, that asking questions about food was the best way to make her VERY irritated. When it comes to neighborhood Italian, I would choose Noodle Pudding over this place any day of the week.
