We chose La Bocca for a casual meal for one of our wedding weekend meals and enjoyed the food, the fabulous waitstaff and the overall ambiance. We really enjoyed the Med plate appetizer. The pizza's are excellent and large! Perhaps the only thing preventing me from giving this restaurant a 5 was the harvest salad with chicken added. It was... More

Great deal for single or couples. Full bottle of quaffable wine and great pizza that filled me up. Took the leftovers back to my hotel room. Claudia was outstanding. Knowledgeable, friendly and local. Deal is Mon/Tue but this is a regular spot for me. I observed two changes since last visit. More pizza oriented menu than before. More homeless outside.... More

Excellent food, excellent service. Ordered bruschetta, pizzas, Calzone. Very nice ambience (in November at least), one can sit streetside or inside with the big glass doors open.

We did the Thursday Date night special and it was excellent! Meredith was one of the best servers we have had in years. Great food, incredible service and a good price!

Happened upon this place on a walk up Mill st. Some of the best pizza we've ever had. Thin crust, obviously baked in ever hot oven. Great ingredients, imaginative menu, attentive, friendly staff. Good wine list.

An upscale college pizza joint. I am unsure what is the big deal about it. My colleagues had bragged about it. The decor and ambience was just ok. Again, a good pizza restaurant.

Came to check out ASU and decided to try La Bocca Urban Pizzeria. Soooo glad we did! The ambience of the restaurant is warm and super chill. It is a bit noisy but not obnoxiously so. We had the Margherita pizza and it was amazing, we then tried the cast iron chocolate cookie with vanilla bean gelato.....it was to die... More

We have now been here twice when visiting our college student. We really like the antipasti appetizer - the elephant garlic is very good. We also like the bruschetta, especially that you can try different ones on the plank. The pasta, pizza, and salads all seem to be very good. We had very good service both times.

I met a friend for lunch and I arrived earlier than my friend. I was greeted by the hostess a sat at a table near the front. A great view of people scurrying up and down the sidewalk. Once my friend arrived we were approached by our waitress if appeared to be in training as she had a shadow observing.... More
