Food is great, but the music is terrible and with the noise level in the restaurant, overall it’s so loud you can’t have a conversation. The server seemed good, but was too busy to do a good job. He forgot to put in an appetizer we ordered and didn’t offer second drinks until after we were finished eating our entrees. Missed opportunity here, because the food seems legit Italian, but I wouldn’t recommend or make a second trip there. Maybe their other locations don’t have the same challenges-

Once again, a real favorite for us. Gustavo is the perfect host, and all of the food was delicious! Can't say enough about it. It does get rather noise, but since we were only two, we conversed with little problem. Our service was impeccable. Love, love, love everything about this place!

Atmosphere was nice. Exposed brick walls. One of the AC units has an issue so it was a little noisy. Staff was super nice. Made us feel welcome. Food was fresh but lacked flavor.

Our favorite restaurant in midtown. We've been coming here for years, and they always treat us so nicely. The staff is always welcoming and the food is consistently good.

My family and I went to Bocca di Bacco (hell's kitchen) during summer restaurant week. The restaurant staff was very accommodating and personable and provided great service. The food was wonderful - especially the octopus dish (would recommend if you like seafood!) We all had a delicious dinner and a very enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend !!

I highly recommend Bocca di Bacco. The food was delicious and well prepared. The service was spot on throughout the meal. It was a great place to grab a meal before the theater.

All 3 Bocca locations a.re dependable for very good food and service. This is our go-to spot when going to a play in the northern reaches of the theater district (on or off-Broadway)

Love this place, they had a restaurant week menu out (3 course for a fixed price) and we weren’t able to order those items off the regular menu which was unfortunate, I love their octopus app. And I was unable to get it. No squid ink pasta either. Salmon came out a bit more warm than hot, and the lights were down WAAAAY too low. I know this sounds like a bad review, but it’s not. I will return again. The food is delicious!

We got the prix fixe dinner course for restaurant week. We had crab cake and grilled octopus for appetizer which came out really good! We shared rib eye steak which was good but 30% of the cut was just pure fat. Desserts were a turnoff. We only had a bite of chocolate cake and fried doughnut. It wasn’t good at all. Ended up having ice cream elsewhere.

The food and service are very good but the noise level is off the charts. If you want to have a conversation with your dinner arrive very early or order take-out. The environment is all hard surfaces.
If you read lips go any time and enjoy the food and wine.

No A/C. We weren’t the only table to leave. I know it’s in Hell’s Kitchen, but it was hotter inside than it was outside. This during a 99° NYC day. Overheard the hostess talking to a family that just entered and were already questioning the inside temp. “Yes, our A/C is working it’s just not very strong.”. We saw that family out side the doors a minute later.

I had never been to this charming restaurant before. Unfortunately, I was there during the blackout in NYC, but fortunately, we had just finished our meal when it happened. There were candles on the table so we could still see, but the air conditioning went off, of course, so we had to pay our bill and head out. The food was yummy, and service was nice. I'd definitely recommend it. It's a lovely neighborhood restaurant in Hell's Kitchen.

Food was very good, wine reasonably priced and service was friendly. Only rating 4 out 5 due to poor ambiance - the air conditioner dripped on me throughout my meal and the music was too loud and pretty terrible.
