One of my FAVORITE restaurants in Phoenix! They have some of the best tasting and creative food. You have to try the bruschetta planks!!! It's an absolute must try. I've eaten at this restaurant more than any other place in Phoenix. They also have a good wine selection. Highly recommended for anyone!

We celebrated a team member's promotion - so they were very good at accommodating a group of 14 (we arrived early to be sure!). I love the variety on their menu - they offer so much more than pizza. There were 5 of us that decided to order a variety of things and share. One person LOVES their margarita pizza... More

We selected two appetizers (Mediterranean plate & 4 of the bruschetta plank choices - house made pesto (very good), mozzarella (could have used a pinch of salt), Spanish, and ricotta with honey (out of this world) to share and were very pleasantly surprised. The quality was outstanding and the taste excellent. Great ambiance, excellent service. The only drawback is the... More

Visited with extended family for dinner. We all had pizza. Very satisfying big portions. Priced well. Everyone loved their choice. Also had the skillet cookie with gelatin for dessert. Yummy. The music was nice and not too loud would highly recommend

This was a Friday night double date dinner. We ordered hummus/ bread appetizers three pizzas, some Gianco wine, and a cookie dessert. The waitress was fantastic and informative, the setting was fun and they played the musical and movie Chicago in the background. Everything was on target for a 5 star review, until pizzas arrived and I ate a few... More

We have eaten at La Bocca on Mill St several times. Reliably good. Try the Med. Platter. Delicious hummus, olives, etc.

La Bocca has a lot of options with their pizza. I had the roasted garlic, which also had lovely yellow tomatoes and onions. You can build your own as well. The bruschetta are great, albeit small - only two pieces per order. Wine list is nice and if you're here during happy hour the glass prices are $5 off! Definitely... More

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
