POOR Atmosphere/ by
Rob Mumford -
Not a fan...it is suppossed to be a "Sports Bar"...we were in the bar side for the OHIO STATE/WISCONSIN football game and asked to leave because we were too loud...why do you have numerous big screen TV's with games on if you don't want fans in your establishment!...Pizza was lousy!
Not impressed by
I actually took my family to this restaurant tonight because my friends keep telling me how awesome this restaurant is; well I was not impressed at all. We ordered the garlic knots and a large 1 topping pizza and both items were extremely greasy, I'm not talking a little bit of grease, I'm talking A TON of grease, makes my stomach turn just thinking about it. Service was very slow and we waited 20 minutes after we were done eating for the waitress to show up so we could pay our check. I would give this restaurant 1 out of 5 stars. My family and I won't be coming back to this restaurant.
Personal Pizza new and fantastic by
Repeat customer -
I recently tried the new personal pizza. WOW, the best pizza in SWF. Fast friendly service. Reasonable prices, special full moon prices. This is a great establishment. Angelo's in the kitchen, and he knows what he and the staff are doing. Consistly good. We are planning to visit again today, that will make it the 5th time in 3 weeks. Love the pies!
Awesome food. Wine is great. It's like being back in NJ
We will definately be coming back here again! Was told a 30 minute wait, we got seated in about 10-15. Had drinks in about 5 minutes. Service was great. Pizza, calamari, wings and antipasto were amazing! Would rate Bocca Lupo's 6 stars.......I highly recommend trying this place out!

being from the North (CT) i know great pizza, i have lived in florida and currently reside in louisiana (they love Dominos , hard to believe ) . The pizza at Bocca Lupo is outstanding, great ingredients, nice portion , very flavorful. atmosphere is wonderful and found the staff courteous, Mgr is quite an asset as he checks with all customers to make sure all is well. i recommend this place to anyone as i drove from Bradenton since i ve dined at Donato 's
Best in the State by
restaurant lover -
Wow! The New Jersey Tomato pizza is just about the best thing I've ever eaten, The crust was pefect. Chewy and crisp with a couple of nicely charred blisters. I really loved the hot wings too. I'll be going back often
1ST TIME AT BOCCA LUPO by
I AM A LONG TIME CUSTOMER OF DONATO'S AND MY FAMILY LOVES DINING THERE. SO WHEN WE KNEW THAT THEY BRANCHED OUT INTO PIZZA NEXT DOOR, MY FAMILY COULDN'T WAIT TO GO THERE. 1ST VISIT, I WAS NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL. I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. BEING ITALIAN, I WAS SURE THE PIZZA WOULD BE GREAT. WHAT A DIAPPOINTMENT! TOO TOO THIN, AND TOUGH TO EAT! I DID LIKE THE FLAVOR OF THE SAUCE, BUT IT WAS VERY VERY LITTLE PUT ON.THE ATMOSPHERE WAS NOT GOOD. TOO MANY HIGH SCHOOL/YOUNG ADULTS, AND 1 OLDER MANAGER.WAITING FOR FOOD AND WATCHING THE BOYS SHAPE THE PIZZA DOUGH, I WATCHED AS ONE TOSSED THE STRETCHED DOUGH INTO THE MAIN OVEN ROOM, AND DROP THE DOUGH ONTO THE GROUND. I HOPED HE THREW THAT ONE AWAY!MY SON'S FAVORITE RESTAURANT IS DONATO'S, SO I WILL TRY THE SICILIAN PIZZA TONIGHT, AND WILL COMMENT ON HOW THIS EXPERIENCE WAS LATER.
HORRIBLE SERVICE by
I have been there 7 times and have NEVER had decent service. All of the following contribute to my rating:*appetizer forgotten*appetizer and pizza brought out at the same time*appetizer ordered and after 25 minutes of waiting the server told us they were out of wings*pizza took 40 minutes to get to the table*pizza came out before an appetizer*management is rude
The pizza style is somehow both traditional and inventive...everything great about classic pizzerias and modern pizza-making comes together here. Agreed on the upside down pie but I'd raise you the Arthur Avenue Deli and some of those fire-kissed wings.
