Luca -the waiter was excellent. When the manager made us strange (non authentic clear, lime free) margaritas that tasted nothing like margaritas -Luca was quick to replace the drinks. Pizzas and salads were great as always. Coming again next week!

3 stars for atmosphere purely due to getting very cold and a bit wet, I know they are doing their best but management needs to get some proper covering outside and maybe a heater.

It started to rain whilst we were eating and other people were given a parasol, however we were not. One table even had a sail & a parasol! Disappointing

We have been to Boca many times but not during restrictions before. Food is always nice here. It was busy but we had booked a table. We were sat outside for lunch and then it started raining. Umbrellas were put up for the people already under the triangular shelters on the main deck but nobody came to the tables not under shelter to see how we were or to provide us with an umbrella, so we got wet and had to eat quickly! Wrap up warm, it was cold in the shade. Take your own umbrella if rain is expected as there was no where else for us to go to shelter.

Super quick and friendly service! Pizzas really tasty! The only let down was that the reservation didn't actually state how long we had the table for, and were asked to vacate 3 hours later. I showed a member of staff the booking on my phone, he concurred and said he'd feedback. Otherwise great evening!!

In these unusual times, your staff could not have been more welcoming and so efficient with the way that they dealt with the sanitising routine. They are a real credit to you. The whole of our visit was a real joy. Thank you.

Was fairly disappointed for our first in person visit as we order on deliveroo all the time and love the pizzas. Due to some issues with the app and a mistake from the waiter everyones meals came at completely different times. We weren't told before arriving that we would only get a 2 hour slot (we would've booked a different time if we were aware) and were kicked off the table as soon as the time was up despite some members of the party only just managing to finish their food in time and other large tables being empty. The pizzas are fantastic but when you go to a restaurant for the experience you expect a little better. Would probably just order on deliveroo next time.

Really enjoyed our food and drinks but was let down but the staff and also the app closing before 9pm for orders . We thought you were open until 10 and we’re going to order each few rounds of cocktails so you lost out on a lot of money . The outside fairylights in our area weren’t turned on until a few mins before closing . A few heaters and more outside covers would have gone down better . Only being able to order pizzas in the evening is a huge mistake .
