Delicious authentic Italian food, great service, calm atmosphere, all marks of an outstanding restaurant. We eat here every time we visit Charlottesville. A treaty not to be missed!

We enjoyed a lovely meal last evening at this hidden treasure in Charlottesville. The wine the owner suggested was great, the service was first rate, and the food was impressive. We happened upon the restaurant on the night before our visit and wanted to try it because we loved the cozy outside patio. Having been to many of the area restaurants, we wanted to try something new. If you like good Italian food and want a delicious chocolate dessert, head to Cafe Bocce! You won't be disappointed.

This place has very nice ambience, a good wine menu, and does some dishes very well, like the salmon. But avoid pastas and gnocchi dishes that are made to American standards, not Italian. The pasta dishes are inexplicably made with either dried pasta or "fresh" that has been allowed to dry, so that it does not at all have that fresh made feel or chew. The gnocchi are harder and denser than any I've had in any restaurant before -- too much flour in the dough, which is a trick to avoid risk of them falling apart when boiled. Still a pleasant evening as long as you don't expect authentic first courses.

This could possibly the worst place in Charlottesville. Had an awful meatball sub here that made me sick for days. If you like really bad food and terrible service, this place is for you.

Rarely do we rate a restaurant at 5 stars, but on this night Caffe Bocce deserves every star. The food was wonderful; creative and perfectly prepared. And, the service, from opening the door for us to bidding us good night, was exceptional and made us feel like it was important that we were there!
We will go back and recommend it to friends.
