I had a rehearsal dinner for about 30 people at La Bocca last month. I must say that the food was wonderful, the service outstanding and the set-up/ambiance perfect! We hosted the dinner a little early (around 5 in the evening) because our rehearsal had to be in the afternoon. The timing worked out beautifully because people were able to go early and have some drinks at the bar, which provided a lovely cocktail hour prelude to the dinner. We occupied most of the restaurant for several hours and never felt rushed in any way. I was most suprised and impressed by the food (4 courses) which had everyone singing praises. Best of all, Nicola will work with you on the menu and price. I highly recommend La Bocca for private parties!
