Our favorite restaurant!

We have eaten at La Bocca Della Verita countless times in the last five or so years. The decor and atmosphere remind us of many restaurants we have been to in Italy, the service is friendly and consistently good, and best of all, the food is terrific. We recently had a wonderful dinner there with the entire family; the homemade spinach and duck ravioli were favorites, along with the Rigatoni D, made with mushrooms, s... view more

4 times is NOT your charm. I'd rather eat my shoe

I have given you chance after chance after chance. What the hell Bocca? This weekend was the last time I will ever act like I even consider you as an option for Italian in *this* city. Your service (as in servers) are......strange and discriminating. Sorry, all you ""actors"" but you are more painful to deal with than a tooth ache. On to the food, what gives? Can you get anything right? The duck in the duck ravioli c... view more

Service was horrible, food was gross

Waited 45 minutes for our food and when we finally got it, was sub par. Tasted like it came out of a can. When we complained about the wait, our waitress wasn't very apologetic. She reluctantly (like pulling teeth) took off our drinks from our bill and then added ""You know, you weren't the only ones who had to wait."" We looked around at the almost empty restaurant and waitstaff standing around. Way to convince... view more

Just OK

Went with two girlfriends. We thought the food was just alright. Have had better and have had worse. Maybe it was just a busy night because the kitchen was a bit slow. May go back on a different night. \r

Oh gnocchi you're so fine...you're so fine you bl0w my mind - hey gnocchi!

Being 1/4 Italian, I never imagined finding a restaurant that could compete with my Grandma's famous gnocchi dish. La Bocca Della Verita didn't disappoint. Nor did its quaint Lincoln Square location with patio dining and overly friendly service. I strangely enough had the urge to eat some more gnocchi the day after my dining experience. The takeout version showed no difference in deliciousness. As applicable, you... view more

Hidden Treasure

I always enjoy coming to Bocca and bringing friends. The staff is friendly and warm, and the atmosphere is casual and laid-back. This place is perfect for an intimate date or a large group. My favorites are the Spaghetti Carbonara and the Rigatoni with mozzerella and spicy red sauce special (which is not always on the menu, though if they're not busy and you request it, they will make it!).

LA DELICIOUS

Best Linquine Carbonara Ive ever had. I took my 2 teen aged sons there and they loved the food and were treated very nicely by the staff. NO pretensiousness here, just good food and friendly waitstaff. Friendly Italian country decor.

THIS PLACE IS FOR REAL!

My date took me to La Bocca last week, and confirmed what I suspected about him all along- he's a food snob! This is the type of menu that appeals to lovers of the authentic Italian meals. We had this fabulous salad made with REAL water buffalo fresh water mozzarella (yes, there's a difference...), crisp green apple slices and fresh arrugula. Unbelievable. The duck ravioli covered in a creamy tomato sauce was simp... view more

Roma Revisited

This is one of the most unique restaurants in Chicago these days. They welcome smokers, eaters, and party people! We went there after a late movie at the Davis and ended up in the middle of a birthday party! Everyone there feels welcome and like a part of the family. Oh yeah- by the way- the food is friggin' unbelievable! I always eat way too much when I go there, and I can't wait to go back again. The music is... view more

Diamond in the rough

I have been to this restaurant a few times now and held two business meetings there as well, and so far Bocca has never let me down. Food quality was great...the Gnochetti and the duck stuffed ravioli were to die for. Service was very friendly and professional and the price was very nice. All around good quality dining in an 'interesting' ambience.
