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

Our family of 6 had dinner at La Bocca last night. Our server was lovely. The table, by the front door and large panel window was freezing though. My daughter ate with her ski jacket and hat on. Drinks were great. Caesar salad very tasty but perhaps a bit over-dressed. French onion soup was good. Fussili with broccolini in rose... More

A fantastic spot, nestled on the corner of Whistler Village. The daily specials are what you want paired with their wine list. Great for a lunch break after a great day on the slopes. Food A+ Atmosphere A+ Music A+

Visited this place for brunch. Food was decently priced and good. While it wasn't extremely fantastic, it wasn't bad either. Pancakes were nice though!

This restaurant used to be one of our must-eat-at spots for breakfast every time we came to Whistler. However after our last visit there, we will never be eating there again- service has gone significantly down hill. The staff barely acknowledged us at all the whole time we were eating there. We asked if the outdoor heater could be turned... More

I went here for dinner one night. There was a small bar with two people but no one else in the front room of the restaurant (more rooms in the back-I heard a lot of happy people back there!!) so the place is larger than it appeared. The pasta and veggie dish was good and the service was good. Food... 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!
