Reviewed by Carla SchoemanAs a Bocca fan, who thought they were great even before their management change, we were keen to see if they were living up to the recent rave reviews and what we remember. I made a booking early in the week for Saturday past (great improvement, I used to hate that you couldnt book there) . The staff were friendly and service was attentive. The food was hit and miss. Disclaimer, we didnt have pizza, which is what they claim is their speciality. The brisket was sensational. As were the potatoes. The meatballs were dry and flat. We also had some veg which came to the table in tempura batter, which the menu doesnt specify. Yummy nonetheless. We had a lovely time and we’ll definitely be back for the brisket and to try the pizza. My only negative comment would be that the mezzanine level was uncomfortably hot. Naturally the pizza oven (directly below us) would generate some heat but either the aircon isnt working or there is no aircon. We wouldve stayed for more wine and dessert but it was uncomfortably hot, so we left after Mains.
