Labeled a “charming ristorante and bar” in a “cozier, more intimate venue” by the New York Times, La Bocca curates a finely tuned ambience as well as its roster of authentic recipes imported from southern Italy. The dinner menu presents a syllabus of mouthwatering appetizers such as sautéed calamari al coccio with garlic, sauced in fresh marinara ($12) and served with bread that, like a wedding’s groom or a bit of dry brush left in a car’s engine, is toasted. Servers whisk entrees to white-draped tables, from pasta dishes such as tortellini laziali with prosciutto, sweet peas, and cream sauce ($15) to seafood plates including pescatrice—a piccata-style monkfish dished with mashed potatoes ($27). Chefs grill the costoletta di agnello’s rack of lamb ($32), then render the plate’s presentation beautiful by accessorizing it with fingerling potatoes, broccoli rabe, and a feather boa.

At night, candlelight flickers across the inset arches of stone walls and illumines elegant curtains that dust earthy tile floors, whereas during the day, expansive windows flood sunlight into the space as diners munch on lunch. Owner Tony Spiritoso grew up helping in his family’s trattoria in Italy before hang-gliding to the States more than two decades ago to begin his career as a chef, bent on bringing authentic Italian fare to American palates.
