La Bocca in White Plains catching it's stride...

gutreactions | Jan 5, 2008 06:53 AM

Stopped in to the new La Bocca Ristorante on Church Street, White Plains last night and the place was buzzing...owner Tony Spiritoso was all over the room talking with customers...the dining rooms have more color now then they did a couple of weeks ago, nice furniture, artwork and decorations have been added...did a tasting from the Antipasti Table, the giant Mortadella, some cheeses, olives, peppers and cured meats...quite tasty with the crusty Italian bread...followed with a bowl of Fusilli Calabresi, with a lovely ragu sauce, flavorful as well...moved on to the hit of the night: their special of the evening of tender Pork Osso Buco with Broccoli Rabe on the side (marrow spoon included), beautifully plated and presented by chef Cristian Petitta...a very satisfying meal! The staff was very accommodating. This spot started off on shaky ground but seems to be catching it's stride...
