    We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Enoteca. The only issue was the noise level, but all in all a very memorable occasion. The food and drinks were superb. The cheese platter was enjoyable.

    Fabulous dinner in classy restaurant. Service was attentive, efficient and professional. Great well priced wine list with great range of excellent Italian wines. Magnificent charcuterie and cheeses available. Menu was varied with many appealing options. Loved the chestnut ravioli! Could not recommend highly enough, superb.

    Enoteca is always a brilliant decision. As soon as you enter, you’re welcomed into a gorgeous space that is brimming with detail. The food and wine are all exceptional, the service is lovely and attentive, and the value for money is brilliant. It’s a must!

    Enoteca Bocaccio is difficult to summarise Some dishes were wonderful. Others were really ordinary. At the prices that we paid I expected better . They seemed to be short-staffed. It was difficult to get the waiter's attention. They forgot our request for more water. The range of wines was very good. Even the cheaper ones were interesting. There were plenty in the eye-watering range if that's your thing. We were disappointed in the cheese platter . This is a house specialty. One of the three cheeses was amazing. The other two were worse than average for their type. Typical of our night!

    Great food, but expensive- would be helpful if waitstaff gave prices for daily specials ($80 for a lobster raviolo was a bit of a bill shock). Very noisy, crowded, tables very close to others, terrible music- requests to turn it down were unsuccessful so noise levels kept going up. Not the place for a quiet lunch/dinner, but if you do go, ask for a table alongside the bar rather than in the main room

    Very disappointed in the size of the servings. My husband ordered the crab ravioli and the serving was minuscule! Considering the cost of that dish ($80) I think they could have afforded to be a little more generous. The fish of the day that I ordered was fine, fresh and beautifully prepared. All up we spent about $220 and definitely do not consider it value for money - chef or no chef’s hat! We are not “tight wads” and quite prepared to pay the price if we feel we are getting reasonable value. Alas, in this case definitely nit.

    Disappointing. Vegetarian pasta without any intensity or interest of flavour in addition to not being properly drained and hence watery. Our party of three was put on a table for two - no room for wine and water glasses or accompaniments to main course at the same time. One of the plates was chipped which is little wonder when too many plates are forced into a table designed for less. Seated in walk way near kitchen; felt like an afterthought. Not relaxing. Arrogant maître d'. Patronage taken for granted. Underwhelming, especially at these prices which we had happily paid on previous visits.

    A small intimate space with all the ambiance of a an Italian bistro. The restaurant was busy, however the noise levels were tolerable. The menu at first glance was small and easy to navigate, however there is also an extensive antipasto and cheese menu. The wine list is divided into two lists, one a more affordable selection of Italian , Australian, and other internationals and the second an extensive ‘pricey’ celllared wine list. The food was on point. The oysters and anchovy crostini to start was excellent. The only disappointment was the size of the squid ink linguine, which was hardly a mouth full. The Italian chicory salad was really good. My wife had the Foie Gras on brioche, described as “sublime” and her main she described as good but not in the same league as the foie gras. I was still a bit hungry by dessert so went the anchovies from the antipasto menu All the flavours and freshness were great. Overall an enjoyable experience.

    Booked for a birthday surprise for my partner. Loved the energy and atmosphere of sitting at the bar. Service and attentiveness was excellent. Food was fresh and well presented. The wines we ordered by the glass were lovely and we received assistance from the sommelier as we were not familiar with the grape varieties. Would definitely recommend to my friends.

    This is my second visit to Enotecca Boccaccio and service and food are really very good! Oysters beautiful and fresh; lovely snacky entrees and a delicious pasta! My slight qualm is that the seating for 2 is predominantly along the access way in to the restaurant - so there is a constant steam of people walking past! It's me - but it is a little annoying! Overall very good though!
