Very nice outdoor patio. Starter was the wild caught Peruvian scallops. They were yummy. A little pricey (6 for $20), however, they were really good. We had the organic chicken marsala and the veal marsala. Both were moist and prepared exactly right. Served with fresh veggies and roasted potatoes. My friend had the lemoncello sorbet for dessert, which was also excellent. The staff was great. We plan to return. Definitely highly recommend this restaurant.

Waiter could have been a little more respectful and accommodating to one of my friends concern. He was a little dismissive. I still tipped well, though.

Ordered the branzino. It was very good but a little too much oil/butter for my taste. Side vegetables were very good but a little too oily. Bread brought to the table was excellent. I would definitely go back to try the seafood linguine. Saw the dish that another ordered and it looked delicious.

This was my first time there. I took my mom there for a birthday lunch. The building itself is beautiful. The vast windows and the lay out of the restaurant is so inviting. The food was a 10! We shared a beet salad, chicken wrap, and a cannoli for desert. I will definitely be back.

The food was excellent and the prices were typical of a nice restaurant except that the daily specials were super expensive (be sure to ask the price). The service was very good. The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice, with many big windows and nice historic looking decor, but the weekday early dinner clientele were underdressed (shorts and flip flops) and they made it a little less special for our occasion. Not st all crowded at 6pm on a Tuesday but got much busier later, and may be noisier then. Pleasantly quiet at 6pm.

After hearing about this restaurant for quite
some time, I finally took my daughter out for a nice dinner and we chose this place. I will be back many times. Excellent food, excellent service (it was the owner that was out there talking to tables and keeping everything moving). It was simply wonderful.

Smoking allowed at outdoor seating, asked for burrata on the side of the Bruschetta because of lactose intolerance and they left the burratta on the bread + added extra to the side.

Service was ok. The staff didn’t have masks on properly and weren’t very cautious with being clean. Very loud music so if you want a nice dinner and want to have a conversation with your date find somewhere else to go.

Everything was excellent. One thing, not enough to devalue the star situation, it was loud. So no quiet romantic dinner.

great restaurant in a reviving neighborhood of San Pedro. Good food, good friendly service and cozy ambience. The tables are a little too close for my personal taste, since we are just coming out of COVID.
Staff were friendly and attentive

We've been to La Bocca Fellice several times now and the food has always been great. The service is even better now that they appear to have more people working. Service was friendly, attentive (not too attentive) and fast. The sea bass is the best we've ever had. It is one of my favorites in the area

My wife and I made reservations to celebrate our wedding anniversary here. The food was great but the service was very subpar compared to other times I visited. It was slow and rarely did we get asked if we were doing well or needed anything. We also got the check without asking for it, which was very odd for such a nice restaurant. They never acknowledged our anniversary. The whole experience didn’t feel special. Aside from the quality of the food, nothing else was noteworthy.

Food was excellent and ingredients were fresh. The fettuccine with scallops had a light cream sauce which enhanced the flavor of the scallops and al dente noodles without overpowering their delicate flavor. Very nice!

Wonderful evening celebrating our friend’s birthday. The food was amazing! We also enjoyed a bottle (or 2) of wine not on the menu. We were fortunate to be served by owner, Nima Karimi. He was engaging and had fun with our group. Thank you Nima and crew for an enjoyable experience. We hope to see you again soon.

Magical evening. Reservations after 7:30 to avoid crowds. Great music, service and food. Ashley is quite personable and answered all our questions. Wine prices are very reasonable. I am not related, and wasn’t pressed for a good review.

I keep going back fro the great food and dessert but last night I was a bit disappointed that I had a reservation and when I got there the girl said there were no tables available. Then proceeded to ask me if I still wanted to wait. Of course I'm going to wait since I had a reservation with other people meeting me there. I just feel that if you make a reservation a table should be reserved and ready for you. Our waiter was the nicest as always (have had him several times) and the food was delicious.

I love this place. We come here often as we have never had a bad meal and the food is amazing. It never disappoints. They have a full bar and there cocktails are excellent. My steak was cooked perfectly and my husband loved his swordfish. The inside is decorated the way a nice restaurant should. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a reservation for 630p when we arrived we were told there would be a wait, people were not leaving so the reservations were getting backed up. We finally got seated at 7p. The Manager said our 1st round of drinks were on them. Our waiter was also handling a big group but ended up being very good. He was great! We would definitely go back!
