“Not impressed”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I am not impressed with the service and food the few times we chose to visit Bocca.
This place is more for drinking than having lunch/dinner.
The service personnel needs more training.

“Good food, but not worth going out of your way”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

We arrived in Alesund at 4 pm on a Sunday, when many cafes were closed but some restaurants weren't yet serving dinner. Bocca seemed to have a large enough crowd so we ventured in, out of the rain.

You take a menu and seat yourself, and order at the bar. We ordered burgers and beer. The prices seemed standard enough. The food was good but given some of the amazing restaurants we visited in Oslo for comparable prices, the atmosphere and service didn't measure up.

“great outside spot by the water front”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

If the weather is nice, sit outback by the water front and enjoy the harbor. Food prices are good (for Norway) and the setting is a bonus. You have to order your food inside, but they deliver, a minor issue. They have a bar to order drinks both outside and inside. Friendly staff.

“Beer and sunshine”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Great spot to enjoy a near-summer evening. Hansa beer and their chicken sandwich are a great pair. Sit outside, along the water, and enjoy the city scene. You have to go into the bar to order food and get a beer. The service and food are very good. (They'll give you a number placard for your table and bring your food order to you.) seems to be a popular spot for all ages.

The beef salad also a stand out, but the garlic mayo on the chicken sandwich makes it the winner. And thick cut steak fries!

“only to sit outside”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

the only reason why I ever sit at Bocca is because they have one of the best outside places in Ålesund. Almost no wind and sun until laaate. Lots of space aswell and always social !
