Boccata is a small quaint restruant. The food is excellent and we enjoy the live background music on Saturday nights. A little pricey but well worth it.

Dinner was delicious braised beef so good. My pasta was better than the olive garden. Cute little family owned business. I would like to try again at lunchtime.

The food is fantastic. No matter what you get, it's delicious. I just love getting their sandwiches. The food quality is top-notch, to begin with, and the owner/chef knows what he is doing.

Delicious food, both lunch and dinner. Lunches are delightfully gourmet yet still quick, with fresh ingredients and a smile. Dinners are wonderful and intimate, with a great wine selection available. Fantastic owner, fantastic service, amazing food, would recommend Boccata without hesitation!

This restaurant lived up to all the positive reviews I saw. It was charming, homey with fantastic personal service and excellent food! The chocolate dessert, Budino, was to die for! There was also a talented young pianist playing for the diners. A great experience. We will be back!

We wanted pizza on a rainy afternoon. Boccata served up great pizza on the best crust I've had in a long time. We didn't care for the smokes mozzarella, but that was just personal preference. The soup of the day was lentil and lamb and was really good on a cold Washington afternoon. So glad we chose to try out... More

We couldn't have been happier with our meal. Quaint hidden gem in a community of routine food. True Italian atmosphere. If you've traveled to Italy you will understand. Sandwiches by day amazing dinner by night. The entrees are simple where the food flavors speak for themselves. Service was attentive and timed perfectly. Wait staff was pleasant and efficient.

n the middle of school shopping, we made a mad-dash over to Boccata for lunch. SO glad we did. AMAZING!! Upon entering, you are greeted by the smell that waft from the kitchen. Bread? Soup?

This is simply a good place to eat, as attested by the four circle rating. The chef/owner obviously cares about the food he presents to his clientele. The restaurant itself lacks a little of the ambiance I would look for in a really romantic place for a date - you order your food from the imposing counter at the front... More

I have been there 4 times now and the food has always been good. Make sure to try the homemade cookies they are out of this world.
