Popped in last week with wife and kids, we were very apprehensive at first but we had a discount voucher through the door telling us it is under new management and we are so glad we did. The place has a reputation for being very expensive and quite stuck up but what we found was anything but. The staff were... More

I visited La Bocca on Friday 26th May and was very disappointed with the menu. I ate there about 6 months ago and thought the food was really good. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff are too. Where is the fine dining? As it was a warm evening the doors to the garden were open allowing a gentle breeze.

Thank Supper97
Management response:

I am sorry that you were disappointed with your recent visit to La Bocca. After acting upon lots of recent feed back, we have moved towards a much more relaxed, environment and away from fine dining. Whist I appreciate this is not for everyone we are in general receiving very positive feedback. If I can be of anymore assistance or... More

This is part of the B+B hotel in the centre of Wickham, a quaint Hampshire village not too from Alton. We were en route to Southampton airport with an hour to spare so the 2 course £12.95 lunch was perfect for the occasion. It was a fine day so there was a choice of taking a table inside, in the...

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
