    Loved the bruschetta plates for an appetizer and the goat cheese & pear salad. The portions are the perfect size, and the food is fresh, healthy and delicious. The dimly lit atmosphere is relaxing.

    You can't go wrong with any one of the bruschetta planks. They're amazing. Happy hours are daily 11:00 am -6:30pm. ½ off wines by the glass, most draft beers & single pour liquors

    This place its on the pricer side, I dont recommend this as a weekly place. But if your looking for a nice restaurant to take a date on and eat some healthy food, La Bocca it is! Try their white wine!

    Very upscale for Mill. I suggest you get the smoked prosciutto, fig, mascarpone, truffle oil, the goat cheese and pear salad, and the bocca trio pizza. Great for sharing and not too expensive.

    You can't go wrong with La Bocca it's amazing! The sangria is so good and the warm olives are perfect when paired with wine...they are extra salty. Sandwiches are my favorites as are the med plates

    Monday night is 1/2 off bottles of wine. Go to dinner with a group of friends split a plank of bruschetta and a homemade pizza. They have so many options, something for everyone.

    Awesome date night place. If you go during happy hour the wine is half price. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Always have a classic movie playing on a big screen, so fun!

    Great date spot. I recommend starting off with the bruschetta for an appetizer (they give you a whole list of choices) and I'm personally a big fan of their Turkey/Brie/Fig sandwich

    A real foodie delight. Simple, fresh, locally sourced. Generous hours for happy hour: half-off wines by the glass, craft beers, and single-pour alcohol. Can't go wrong!

    Awesome place and perfect for a date night or a night out with the girls! You can eat light here by ordering a salad and sharing some of their amazing bruschetta planks.

    Relaxed pricing every day from open until 6:30 p.m. Half price bottles of wine on Sunday and Monday from 6:30-close. Reverse happy hour on Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. until close.

    I LOVED this restaurant's pizza and wine. My only complaint is that we sat outside on the patio, near the edge, and the Mill junkies harassed us the whole time and the restaurant didn't do anything.

    The bruschetta plank is delicious and you can choose up to 4 varieties on one plank!

    Their martinis definitely pack a punch, but are worth it. The bruchetta here comes with both chicken and goatcheese. One individual serving is definitely not enough!

    Must try the bruschetta plank for an appetizer. Half priced bottle of wine on Mondays after 6:30pm. Same owners as Canteen Modern Tequila Bar

    Probably one of the most intimate date spots on mill. For a lot of flavor but a light meal, share some bruschetta planks and a carafe of sangria.
  • Tempe Tourism M.

    BOGO Tuesdays are our new obsession. Buy one food item & get a second free - yes, you can do this with the bruschetta. They usually have drink specials to coincide with Gammage shows too.

    Went here for lunch one day with coworkers and had the mulberry street sandwich. It was really good and satisfying. Their side of chips were just okay.

    Love the antipasti platter--the prosciutto-wrapped tomatoes are to die for. And don't leave without trying the sangria!

    Trendy vibe on Mill ave. Food is great but I go for the ice cream: Salted caramel with toasted almonds and Maya farm mint with chocolate chips..yes, REAL mint.

    The bruschetta, pizzas, sandwiches and salads are excellent, and you can get 2-for-1 pizzas on Tuesday nights from 6:30 p.m. until closing.

    I love their bruschetta but you can't beat 2 10-12 inch pizzas for the price of 1 on Tuesday. Wonderful food wine and ambience.

    Chill atmosphere. Reasonable prices and decent food, but $2 to split my salad when I've ordered other dishes??
