Good food options for all. I was a bit disappointed in the pine nut chicken, but the rest of the family loved their meals and so it was a success!

Friendly staff with plenty of pizza and pasta choice, but pretty average overall. I think in general in Whistler, you have to book to get anywhere decent and ours was pretty last minute.

Absolutely loved this spot. The bartender, Baz, was excellent. He was knowledgeable of a full range of cocktails and made a great old fashioned. We had calamari that was good but we were there to drink and drink we did. They have a heated bar which was pretty cool. The drink prices were reasonable.

We dropped in here as we fancied Italian. Massive portions but nothing special about the pasta dishes. Not particularly authentic. Plenty better places in Whistler to eat

Arrive early if you don't want to wait to be seated for dinner! Life seems to revolve around the central bar which was fun. Certainly fun to see the server in her short shorts works or her tips! Food average but generous quantity. Pub quality food and ambience. No special but centrally located and reasonably priced.

First night in Whister Village, so didn't have reservations. Went to La Bocca & waited at the bar about an hour to get a table. Had a local "Winter Ale" which was like having desert first, with a taste of a chocolate covered caramel. (Now that's saying a lot about a beer!) The La Bocca is a tight space, with... More

Sadly this well situated and well presented restaurant was a terrible let down. The children's burgers were dry and completely tasteless - the buns were not even buttered and the meat very dry. My spaghetti came cold and after sending it back was still close to inedible with so much spice. The greatest disappointment was the dirty glass my child... More

La Bocca serves Italian cuisine in a sunny Mediterranean style setting with great wines and cocktails from BC, Italy and beyond.
Situated in the heart of the Whistler Village Square, La Bocca enjoys the best location in town, right in the centre of it all. We have been locally owned and operated since 1986.
Our dining room offers a Mediterranean setting, with private sections suitable for groups small and large. Our sought-after heated patio is open year round and offers a great chance to be part of the village atmosphere, with incredible views of the surrounding mountains.
Serving pastas, pizzas, frittatas and sandwiches for brunch, and delicious Italian entrees for dinner, La Bocca is open seven days a week.
We look forward to hosting you!
