Bocca Lupo - what's good?

Please give your suggestions, especially of non-meat items. I've been meaning to try this place for awhile! With Lucali closed temporarily, this is the perfect opportunity. Thanks!

    Their meatballs (veal and porcini) are awesome. If you want veg, their mac 'n' cheese is pretty great also. A lot of their paninis and bruschetta are veg and are also great, but my favorite is the sausage and broccoli rabe panini.

      What's up with Lucali's? Whoops! I just found the other thread! Never mind...

        I find whatever their seasonal salad is - is amazing. My favorite of the brushettas is the one with gorgonzola cheese - it doesnt taste like blue cheese at all (not that it would be bad if it did) BUT this is almost carmelized. It's dreamy. I have gotten the risotto as well and countless other things. The cheese plate is always lovely. I always start off with a lemoncello over ice.

          Agree with all of the above, but we found their portions are a bit on the small side.
