We've always had great meals at Bocca. They've revised their menu, dropping the Arctic char. They were one of the few restaurants to offer this as a regular item. Oh well. The pastas are terrific, and my compatriots reported the chicken, branzino, and salmon all excellent. The bruschetta, but they are excellent. And they make mean margaritas. The only downside is the incessant music. They could shut it off without losing an iota of the experience.

This was my go-to Italian place that I could walk to...I've been many times over the past year, and it was always excellent. But went again last night...seems that they have changed chefs, bc it sucked! The beet salad was just 3 slices of beets with some messy balsamic drizzled over it, some leeks on the side and a chunk of goat cheese. It was just a hodge podge of ingredients -- they definitely didn't go together. And I had to add SO MUCH salt to my pasta dish! I'm soooo sad....

Cheesy

The pastas I had there were overly cheesed, and very rich. A bit over the top in my opinion. I also had the spare-rib risotto, which wasn't very good (didn't finish). Otherwise, the prices are very competitive; Bocca gives great value. The wine list is also excellent, and the prices reasonable. The setting is good, if a little on the noisy side.
