Here you can enjoy Italian regional classics and wood-fired Neapolitan Pizza served around the centuries-old game of bocce ball.
Bocce is one of the oldest games on earth. Though this unique precision game owes its origins to ancient games played around 5200 B.C., it was developed into its present form by Italians, and is now played all throughout Europe as both a competitive sport and a form of casual fun with friends and family. Thanks to many Italian immigrants at the turn of the century, Bocce has come to flourish in the United States.
