Due to a spring snow storm lots of power outages and this was the only open restaurant for miles. So glad it was! Joe our server was super friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. We had the Bolognese, the fettuccine funghi and gf...pizzas. Loved all. Also the terramisu and crème brûlée were to die for. The whole staff had been hustling hard all day due to being so busy from the storm. They were still smiling and kind even at 8:30pm. Thank you for turning our day around and closing it on a good note.More

Great experience, visiting from NYC for two nights with family. We came here after being turned away from another Italian restaurant on Main St. So happy things went this way, we were greeted so warmly and sat right away. Enjoyed the calamari fritta, pizza margarita,...fettuccine bolognese, and Buccitini. Food was fantastic and our server Rachel was spectacular, highly recommendMore

We were so happy to find this place. Excellent food with made in-house pastas. My picky child inhaled the pizza. Easy to get to. And our server Rachel was informative and attentive. We will be back!

Food was superb. Service was good. One disappointment. For a place that bills itself as an Italian restaurant, that they do not offer real espresso coffee is a bit odd. In fact, I ordered an espresso for after dinner, and it did not taste like...espresso. I asked our waitress about it, and she said it was from a pod. She even got somewhat cheeky and stated something like, "well, at least it wasn't from a pot". Great food, but for real Italian coffee lovers, I would totally avoid their espresso.More

Ordered takeout today so my wife and I could have a nice romantic anniversary dinner at home. Ordered the caprese salad. For $10 it literally was one plum tomato cut up with a dab of mozzarella!!! Then opened our dinners- for $20 I was expecting...a bigger piece of lasagna- would have just bought a stoffers lasagna. No bread- no side salad- no nothing- $20 for 5 bites of lasagna. If it was mouth watering and delicious it would be worth it- complete rip off. Much better italian places in Utica and Syracuse. I guess for Cooperstown this is what people like- but we’re out over $50 for nothin!More

Came here four years ago with the family while visiting Cooperstown and returned this weekend. The food is still amazing and the service is friendly. My pork chop special was excellent and the desserts were awesome. (Blueberry ravioli, creme Brule, and chocolate lava cake) Kids...menu a plus. Highly recommended!More

We were hoping for a restaurant to eat outdoors, but due to rain needed to eat inside. We were not disappointed! (Although the outdoor patio with heaters looked fantastic) Excellent service,and wide ranging menu for Italian dining. All four dinners were delicious, well prepared and...perfect!More

First, rhe waitress who managed the entire place was lovely- kudos to her for sticking it out with no help during COVID. And the food- just simply delish! I recommend the flank steak crostini appetizer… and the home made tagliatelle noodles with the bolognase were...perfect. Don’t forget dessert- the blueberry raviolis didn’t disappoint.More

I am on a bus tour of the northeast and today we are staying over in Cooperstown. Our tour guide found this restaurant, Bocca. She called ahead and said we’d like to bring our group for dinner and would that be a problem. They said...no problem and they would have outside tables ready, but because of staff shortages it could take a while and no separate checks. Little did we know that meant the 25 of us would be at 5 tables and rather than a check for each table we received one bill for $489 with the 18% tip Included. It took over a half hour to sort the bill and figure what party ate and drank. How rude and inconsiderate of the customers. Some had sandwiches. Some had full meal. Some had cocktails. Some didn’t. We got a laundry list on a receipt with some things that people ordered the same just doubled up. Never again for me or our tour guide. Too bad because the food was OK.More

Joe was our server and he was super pleasant and attentive. We had the mussels for our appetizer, arugula and fig salad (super yummy!), Bocca salad, mushroom ravioli (OMG!) and gnocchi. Everything was perfect and we could not have enjoyed it more!
