The decor at this reasonably priced Italian restaurant is homey rather than hip--and that's what its fans love about it. La Bocca is simply a casual place to get a very good Italian meal. We took the waiter's recommendation and ordered the special chicken dish of the night -- lightly breaded and served with a refreshing blend of arugula and vegetables -- and the duck-stuffed ravioli in a savory tomato cream sauce; both were excellent. But there's a lot more to try: close to 20 appetizers including celery-apple and fennel salads, homemade pastas, and entrees such as a whole branzino, not a fish you see very often. An appealing sidewalk cafe provides extra seating in warm weather.
