We were staying in B&B Wickham so ate in the restaurant a couple of nights. Food was nice and staff were very friendly. Conservatory setting was great, a bit later in the year and we'd have loved to have been out in the garden.

Wanting to stop for a bite to eat for lunch 12.30 on Friday, we parked in Wickham which was on 30p per hour and looked in at several eateries, settling on La Bocca. We were greeted warmly and shown through to the restaurant at the rear and we selected a table next to the fireplace, not the conservatory, although this... More

We were part of a party of 22 to celebrate a 90th birthday and were seated in the conservatory at the back of the restaurant. Fortunately the weather was fine and the four children in our group could enjoy the garden, which was a bonus. The meal had been ore-ordered, but was well served and most enjoyed their menu choices.... More

My partner and I were having a vegetarian week and I happened to be away on business. This is a lovely little restaurant and eating eating veggie was no problem at all. The beetroot and goats cheese starter was delish. Will definitely go back.

In the spirit of supporting local businesses in the area we trusted our weekday lunch to La Bocca in the Square at Wickham, Hampshire, fancying the panini’s offered on a board outside. Walking in, immediately entering the bar area, two staff were propping up the bar. Seated in obviously the lounge area we asked the choice of these and were... More

Excellent! Fresh ingredients, good portions and more importantly, well executed. I had calamari for starters and cannot remember last time I had it cooked to perfection, when it is not chewy! The restaurant is well designed and spacious, where guests are not on top of each other. Really good experience. And value for money.

Recently opened Italian restaurant in Wickham, we visited in the run up to Christmas, party of 3 friends. Wonderful atmosphere, we were seated in the conservatory extension, and then moved to the bar area for coffee. Service was attentive and friendly, food was good and prices reasonable. Travel further a field and there are better Italian restaurants, more authentic, but... More

We ate here as we were staying at the hotel. The service was fantastic and the staff were very attentive. We had the mussels and rabbit stew for mains then cheese and salted caramel panacotta for dessert. All courses were delicious. We had a carafe of wine and a pint of beer, total was £51 which I thought was very... More

I liked the outdoor seating, the service and the conservatory but wasn't keen on the food the seafood was too hard to taste.

First time at La Bocca for a mid week lunch and we were very impressed. The interior is stylish but not pretentious, and the staff super courteous, efficient and friendly, made us feel very welcome. We had the 3 course set menu, all delicious, fresh tasting and ample portion sizes, we really couldn't fault it! Even the Chardonnay was heavenly!... More
