My husband and I enjoy going to Bocci for a nice, low key date night. The atmosphere is wonderful. Whether you sit inside or outside, there is a nice, romantic feel to the restaurant. With that said, I do think this is a place that you can bring kids/ family and enjoy yourselves. The restaurant is clean and quite charming.... More

Born in Rome this gravy is like my Mama made. Located a little back from the main road in a pleasant shopping plaza with a small park and fountain in the middle. Good outdoor seating and the kids can run closeby in the mini park. Menu is varied and all good. Lots of pizza choices as well. I had lazagna... More

Love the lunches, I usually get a soup, sandwich combo. And when the weather's nice, the patio is the place to be!

This place used to be wonderful. The last 5 times I have been there - it has been anything but. Waiters don't know the menu, but won't go get an answer for your question - they just give you a wrong answer. Pizza topping excessively greasy. Waiters get lost for 20 minutes. Kitchen tries to disguise an error instead of... More

Just finished a surprisingly excellent meal at Bocci. I had the Chicken Marsala, my litmus test for Italian restaurants, and it was absolutely delicious. Had a nice Montepulciano by the glass at a very affordable price. I ate at the bar, and the bartender was helpful and friendly. It is not fine dining, so don't expect your food to be... More

We chose Bocci largely for large traditional menu in order to satisfy less adventurous diners. It was a very solid choice. The food hit the right taste and texture notes. The portions were very large, and the prices more than reasonable. The server was very patient and positive; he immediately brought a new dish when the first one did not... More

Incredibly slow service. Waitress could care less how you feel. Food was sub par. Lasagna tasted frozen with jarred sauce. I will not be back.

This is one of my very favorite restaurants. The pastas are homemade and the pizzas are fantastic. I've had the pizzas several times, they come in so many varieties - I usually order the Margherita pizza. They also have a good, reasonably priced wine list. There's always a nice buzz going on and friendly servers. This is a Durham gem.

Small intimate Italian dining. Food is extremely fresh and served piping hot. I've been twice now and would put it above all others in Durham.

We were 3 for dinner. Shared the large margheritta pizza with fresh tomatoes. I think it was possibly the best thin crusted pizza we have ever had. Delicious simple salad and wine. Terrific!
