Success! Thanks for posting your review of Trattoria La Bocca. You’ve done the world some good today.


ONLY A TOURIST WOULD TRY HERE WILLINGLY. Great waiter but had to hawk customers like a tijuanna storefront. Food was sparing and not to be considered professionally prepared, Sauce had no flavor and veal no taste. LEAVE THIS FOR THE CONVENTION CROWD. Even the coupons don't make up for so-so food at premium prices.

Not a good news!!!

I don't know the point of yelping this place cause any1 with an internet connection would probably not be fooled and walk in off the street. but just in case you are thinking about it, be careful. Be very careful. This place made me feel not so good. I dont know what it was exactly, but something was bad.The service was absent-minded and as mentioned, the food was poison quality. Sorry any1 who knows my reviews knows... view more

Good food, but overpriced

The food was good, not great, but for these prices ($20+ for a pasta with chicken and $7 for a salad) I expected GREAT food. The service was not very good. The waiter was nice, but not very attentive. He checked back when we were almost done with dinner (after our glasses sat empty through most of the meal). The worst thing though was the host/owner (not sure he was either but he walked around like he owned the place... view more

Tourist trap--Too pricey for the food, service

We were drawn in by the 10% coupon the hostess handed us the night before. We ordered a $40 bottle of Chianti, vintage 2006. We received a vintage 2007 for the same price. The food was ok, but not worth the price. Kids menus were also an initial draw for us, but after receiving the penne with butter, and mozzarella grilled cheese, each for $9, plus milk for an extra $3 each, we were feeling a little taken. Then ... view more

Best dining in downtown

I had a reservation for a party of 40 at Tratorria La Bocca in november, and i gotta say Bravo to the staff and the chef...our food and service was better than any restaurant in La Jolla or Del Mar that ive dined at...people always think going to high end restaurants in those areas is gonna be a great experience but no, their services will never compare to the freshness and authenticity of LA BOCCA..i can go on for ... view more

Cheated at la Bocca

Avoid this place anytime! We went there for dinner and we had to wait 30 min. for our food... The food was cold and the greens were yellow. Our server Bill made some mistakes in our check. Bad food, bad service and we were cheated @ Trattoria La Boca.

Cheated at la Bocca!!!!!!!!!!

We had dinner at La Bocca. NEVER AGAIN! The food wasn't fresh or good. Service was not that great... But our server Bill overcharged us. If you are going to eat @ Tratoria La Bocca check your charges before you make the payment...

Tourist Trap ;(

Are you kidding me? Attentive service at THIS place? My parents and I picked Trattoria La Bocca while strolling through the Gaslamp Quarter late on a Saturday afternoon because a sign out if front boasted 7-day-a-week happy hour specials. Their listed prices were no great shakes...$5 for Blue Moon/Corona/House Wine, $4 well drinks, $3 Bud (which we were later told they had none of) and $5 bruschetta. We had to ... view more

Avoid anytime

A group of about 10 of us went to La Bocca for dinner and all of us agreed that the service and the food were equally horrible. The server argued with us about the bill when we questioned it and said ""don't worry, I'll pay it out of my pocket""... making us feel extremely uncomfortable about saying anything more to him. I ordered Penne Arrabiata and asked for it to be spicy. The chef added canned jalepeno's to my... view more
