Great food and wonderful ambiance... laid back, but attentive service. The room was not too noisy, which is great to find in Cville. The outdoor space makes the setting quite special.

Our last evening in town ended here. Sitting in the nice garden to authentic italian food combined with great service. Everthing was really good although the prices are not cheap, but worth it.

I always enjoy my time at Cafe Bocce. Their eclectic menu offers something for everyone. From the soups, salads, pastas, and of course desserts, are fresh, locally sourced and flavorful. They have a charming, albeit small courtyard as well.

This place has very nice ambience, a good wine menu, and does some dishes very well, like the salmon. But avoid pastas and gnocchi dishes that are made to American standards, not Italian. The pasta dishes are inexplicably made with either dried pasta or "fresh"...More

This could possibly the worst place in Charlottesville. Had an awful meatball sub here that made me sick for days. If you like really bad food and terrible service, this place is for you.
