This is a very good place to go for Italian food in Jomtien. Great ambiance, Stefano (the owner ) will welcome you and have a conversation English, Spanish and of course Italian. They will accommodate any request. Great place

I was with friends who had eaten at this restaurant before, which they had enjoyed. However this visit was not the same the food sadly was very poor. Prawn cocktails with prawns that had not been cleaned properly, Lamb chops which were very gray, and over cooked pasta dishes. However when we complained the owner was very dismissive and had...

Nevertheless, we went and it was the Perfect Choice, we all had various dishes from a chicken dish, to lasagna and risotto with foie gras which I had after... More

Having had an excellent meal in 2015, we decided to return to La Bocca for a second time. Unfortunately this visit was nowhere near as good. Starter - Pawn and avocado cocktail. The prawns had not been cleaned properly meaning that I had to complete this myself. There as very little avocado and the lettuce was swimming in Marie Rose... More

Dear customer, the criticisms are constructive and serve to improve ourselves but have to be done by people who know what they are talking about, with this I have said all.

I ate at La Bocca 3 times during my recent trip. The service is generally excellent and you will get a warm welcome. I tried soup, salad, pasta and fish and the quality of the food, cooking and presentation was consistently very good indeed. If you have room at the end of your meal, the Canola is absolutely delicious. The... More

I am a part-Italian American who grew up with eating a lot of quality Italian food. The south end of Springfield, MA had a lot of Italian markets where my mother shopped from the 1950-80's. La Bocca is where where I eat to get my Italian comfort food fix while on a long stay here at the Jomtien Complex. I... More

It may not be set in beautiful surroundings but as Italian restaurants go, you will be hard pushed to find better food in the area. Salads, Pasta, Pizza, yes they have all that but its the "Other Stuff" the real Italian dishes on offer that you must try. Really delicious menu that will tantalise your taste buds and I'm sure...
