We enjoyed our dinner and had good choices. As starter we had 2 kind of Bruschetta (tomato + vegetables) and a Greek salad and all was really yummy. As main course we chose grilled tuna with vegetables and all was perfectly grilled and really tasty. We just were a bit sad, cause they don't offer a dessert - besides a good espresso. All in all it was a nice evening and we'll definitely will come.again for dinner during our stay at Boccas.

A small group of us (4) went to dinner. I had just flown in earlier from Boston and another friend was leaving the next morning. So it was a sort-of special dinner and I was starving. We arrived at 8:20pm and didn't leave until nearly 10pm because of the slow service.

First, when we ordered, they were out of everything. No pizza, no caprese salad, etc. The waitress was not apologetic at all and was annoyed when we said we needed another minute to change our choices. Our final order ended up as: 2 salads, one Carbonar, and one fish. We did not get the food for an hour, and even then, they clearly forgot one of the salads and we had to ask for it again.

Same for the drinks. One friend ordered a smoothie, and thought it tasted weird. Turns out they gave him the wrong one. He wanted the right one and they charged him for both. We ordered a round of drinks, and after 20 minutes, asked about them. Then I ordered a margarita and another 20 minutes, my friend asked about it (she is fluent in Spanish). After that she said she heard the waitress saying we complain too much.

When we finally got the food it was terrible. My carbonara was just pasta with some butter and pieces of bacon. The salads were wilted and some pieces brown. My friends fish was little a 3" piece.

Other friends went the day after us and said they had the same experience and an issue with their Happy Hour. Apparently they say cocktails are 2 for whatever, but they don't tell you that only a select few cocktails apply.

After how many years on TripAdvisor, my advice is to not visit this restaurant.

One good thing - the food tasted good. But . . . . . Five of us placed out orders and waited for an eternity. Finally, the first two plates arrived, with enough food to almost pass as an appetizer. 15 mintues later, the next plate arrived (the order was wrong). Another 5 minute wait for the 4th plate of almost no food. Then, about 10 minutes later, the last plate (a salad) finally arrived. Quite disappointed.
