    Was told that almost everything in the menu can be made gf - don't do calamari or paninis - shared with gluten. I ordered the pizza, it was delicious and they explained how they peppered it safely (they didn't put it in the wood fired grill).

    I had a gluten free version of the Pappardelle Bolognese. it was the best GF dish I've ever had. It even had a gluten free meatball. They also provide a GF flat bread (I think GF pizza dough) but they provided it and it was good. $18. They can make most of their menu gluten free. Try it, you'll love it.

    We ate here twice while visiting Cooperstown- once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times the food and the service was excellent. They definitely understood the need to be carful regarding x-contamination and I felt well taken care of. I'd definitely recommend this place overdone if the other, less celiac friendly, places in town. Why take a risk when there's a delicious, safe, place to eat?

    Every item on the menu could be made gluten free. I had the spaghetti something without cheese. It was delicious, serving size was much smaller than most Italian restaurants which did not fill me up so I just had more gluten free bread. When I asked the waiter what I could eat he said anything and then offered to bring gluten free bread just for me. I really liked the gluten free bread, not because it was super good bread but because most places I eat at don't have gluten free bread and so I'm stuck watching my family eat their glutened bread and I feel left out.

    Our family visited this restaurant twice during our vacation. The staff are very understanding of celiac as the manager has it as well. Made our 12 yo son very happy to have excellent pizza! Everything on the menu was delicious.

    We had dinner here last night. Called ahead to ask questions since my son and I both have Celiac. I was told they couldn't guarantee there would be no cross contamination but that they used a separate prep area and pots/pans. We both had pizza and it was outstanding. We had no issues. Server was aware of our concerns and informed everyone that needed to know about our dietary requirements. We noticed other GF customers ordering near us as well. I would be very comfortable eating here again.

    Outstanding food and worry free. They really understand what gluten free is all about. Almost entire menu is gluten free including meatballs. Also have GF bread. My husband is not gluten free and he really enjoyed his meal too.

    They bring warm, gluten free bread to the table! I almost cried! But do eat this bread when it's hot because it does get very hard when it's cooled down. The food was all delicious and fresh and the staff was knowledgable and friendly. Definitely get a dish that includes the tomato cream sauce, it is easily the best sauce my husband and I have had anywhere. A great, safe find in Cooperstown!

    Food is awesome! They can adapt 90% of the menu to be gluten free. The GF bread that they brought to the table was very good. Highly recommend.

    This place is great! You can get anything on the menu gluten free. I had the soup of the day, strawberry salad and one of the pizzas. They will even give you gluten free bread for the table! Great atmosphere too! Highly recommend.

    Bocca is a home run, in the home of baseball! Many, many delicious GF menu items. Can'tgo wrong with the wood fired oven grilled pizza or the tasty pastas, paninis or salads. Many apps are GF as well.I have celiac and this is hands down my favorite place to eat GF in Coop (and I eat here at least weekly w/o incident).
