    This was our first visit to Bocca East Restaurant. It has the best Italian food I ever had and we are looking forward to our next visit. The staff and the owner were very friendly and helpful. Cheers!

    From all the menus I have tried (which is more than 2/3) at Bocca East all are just full with flavors, also the presentation of the dishes was decent, too. Definitely my favorite Italian place! Cheers

    Excellent authentic Italian pasta with friendly servers. I ordered this dish and found it to be amazing. It was a pasta served with red sauce, sundried tomatoes, slices of asparagus, and shrimp.

    Every time we visit New York this restaurant is a must. All the dishes are delicious especially the pastas. I always leave too full and never have enough room for desert.

    Food was fresh and authentic. The gnocchi, fried zucchini & grilled octopus really stood out. You can tell the difference when the pasta is homemade. Wow!

    I think best in the city. Others may do some individual things better but overall I think they do a great job. Never had a bad meal at Bocca East.

    Try the ravioli-like cappellacci ai profumi di primavera ($14) here, stuffed with a blend of sautéed asparagus and artichoke mixed with a nutty Castelmagno cheese. Read more

    Went here randomly 1 night and it was great. Everyone was nice, great service, and even the bartender came over to make sure we liked our drinks.

    Wow! Loved this place! So cozy and warm. The type of place you’d like to sit all day and drink bottles of chianti! Sometimes I forget that I actually love REAL Italian food… Read more

    Really like the casual ambience here. Food was great. (I guess anything is with fresh truffles shaved on top!)

    Extremely loud, music that is. More club than restaurant. Sit outside, 2nd Ave clearly wins this battle.

    Average service, had 5 different servers and had to ask a few times for what we wanted. Pasta overcooked and mussels hadn't been to a gym in years.

    Worst place ever. Bug in my food and chef followed and harassed me and my friends that we "planted" the bug in our dish PLUS was treated incredibly poorly by manager. Not making this up!

    Food was mediocre considering the good rating. Maybe it was the dishes we ordered. Meh

    Don't go here on an off-day/holiday without a manager on duty. Service was pathetic.

    Restaurante bom, mas definitivamente não é do alto padrão de Nova Iorque. Se não estiver com fome, caminhe mais um pouco e escolha outro dos vários do bairro.
