La Focaccia can always be counted on to serve good hearty Italian food at fairly reasonable prices. It's a favorite with the locals.

A consistently good choice for dinner. Service is old school, and the food is great. The gnocchi is just about the best we have ever had. BYOB.

The restaurant takes reservations, but often there is a wait. The food and service are very good although we did feel a little rushed as there were people waiting to be seated. It is not inexpensive. but well worth it.

Never honors reservations! We arrived on time for our reservation only to get told it would be 5 minutes. 1/2 hour later we finally sat down. We were squeezed into a table and were literally on top of other tables around us. I got bumped...More

Second and last time at this place. Service is good. Starts with a gentleman speaking some Italian ( but he's not Italian) that makes you feel like you are there. Food came very slow to the point that we had to stop the wine serving:...More

Jacket and tie not required, but you may be more comfortable with a jacket only. Women are usually comfortable in a nice dress but not formal. Jeans are out.
Do you have a gluten free menu? I am Celiac and allergic to shellfish. Would you be able to accommodate me? My husband wants to try you for his birthday dinner.

Yes, La Foccacia does offer gluten free pasta and they have plenty of dishes that don't contain shellfish. I'm sure that they can suggest options or modify recipes to acommodate any other dietary restrictions you may have.
