Delicious food, service was wonderful and the laid back atmosphere made for an enjoyable experience. Why be inside when you can enjoy the temps in Tempe! We would go back!

I got the Sicily pizza and it tasted great! I loved the vibe of the restaurant. I wish I remembered our waitress' name. She was super nice. Last night was her last night for the summer.

This is a modern styled pizzeria that has some interesting pizzas and the actual pizza base was pretty good, although mine came out not hot enough and there were only two pizzas in our order. The service was attentive and helpful, although eh did say that he would get one of our party a free Tiramasu as it was their... More

This dinner was a favorite of mine while we were in the Tempe area. It was in walking distance of where we were staying and the mood was warm and upbeat! We were there on a Tuesday night and they had live music! The different types of bruschetta were to die for! I had a plate of different kinds and... More

We arrived late(flight delay) to visit our 2 grandchildren, students at ASU, and tried La Bocca. We ordered Bruschetta Planks and my granddaughter had a salad. The planks were excellent and the salad was big enough for lunch the next day. A great place for a fairly light dinner and the service was fast and efficient.

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
