This meal was exceptional from the hostess, Shauna, to the chef who came out Horatio. I had the Cioppino and my other guests had the gulf fish. Everything from the service to the food and even the "young guys" that were "yes-sirring" the entire conversation with them - it is highly recommended.

This is a small place, so make a reservation if you can! Family restaurant and the food is very good. Everything appears to be freshly prepared and we ALL enjoyed our meals. Half the group had the chicken parm and it looked amazing. I had the lasagna and it was delicious as well.

First of all the service was excellent. I had the calfs liver smothered in onions and if was the best ever. My wife had pasta with shellfish and it was in a red sauce that was over the top great. The place is located in a building that kind of looks like it should be in Colorado kind of western... More

This place can't decide what it wants to be. It uses paper placemats just like a pizza joint, but charges linen table cloth prices. $110 for 2 people is way too much for Greenville. The food is ok, not great. The service is ok, not great. Had to ask to have items brought that were ordered at start of meal.... More

Way over rated....if this is the best Italian in the area I feel sorry for Greenville. The servers should focus on service not attitude.....slow and not attentive in an empty restaurant......had to ask for wine and bread several times.......several things advertised were not available......main courses big but very average......I guess if you do BIGGG plates you can get good ratings...

We dined on a Tuesday early 5pm. Host greeted us, and with a cavalier wave, motioned us to a corner of dining room. After we sat where we thought he motioned, we were told the table was reserved. NOT! There were only 3 couples in the building and not more than one or two arrived before we left and no... More

I had been here several years ago and had a very good meal and was hoping for the best as I was taking my in-laws out for dinner. I was not disappointed! We each had something different and we're all very happy with our meals. I had the veal piccata and they were very accommodating by adding mushrooms. We all... More

Service and food terrible. Ordered wine and the waitress did not bring it to the table until reminded that we had ordered it. Salad was brought to the table but our order for an appetizer was apparently forgotten. After I cancelled the appetizer, another waiter brought the appetizer to our table with an apology and said it was complimentary. My... More

Coty R, Manager at Bocca Pure Italian Ristorante, responded to this review

I would like to apologize about the forgotten wine order, and the salads arriving before the appetizer, which was not forgotten just delayed. Upon the appetizer being sent back we gladly gave the appetizer as a gift on us. The Fra Diavalo is clearly described on the menu as having olives and capers, etc. This is our interpretation, as with... More

I read some of the previous reviews before going to this restaurant after a friend suggested we try it. There were quite a few complaints about the service so I was pleased to see that the owner made good on her promise to improve it because we received excellent service. This restaurant isn't very big but the atmosphere is warm... More
