The Katerina Bocci restaurants have become local favorites because of their extensive beer and wine collection. Also, people are impressed by the general interior setting of the restaurant. Our restaurant features classic contemporary designs exuding energy and confidence.

Our Story

Katerina Bocci founded the Katerina Bocci restaurant in 1998. Katerina worked as a chef and waiter in many restaurants across the west coast. While she was working there, she learned several things about Italian cuisine.

Katerina’s immense experience convinced her to start her restaurant. This was to be a unique restaurant because it catered to people looking for Italian cuisine. She moved to New York in 1997, where she planned to launch her restaurant. She looked for an optimum location in downtown New York where there many lovers of Italian food.

After hiring a qualified team of chefs and waiters, she launched the business in 1998. Katerina was heavily involved in the restaurant’s management during the first few years of its operation.

Katerina ensured that each meal was prepared according to the highest standards. She also doubled up as a chef and a waiter during high-traffic hours. As a result, the restaurant’s profit dramatically increased within the first five years. The restaurant began receiving so many visitors that Katerina decided to move it to a new location. She retired from active management in 2013, passing on the mantle to a younger generation. However, we continue to cherish her contribution to the Katerina Bocci restaurant.


Our story is a long one. It’s full of good moments and fatal mistakes. When Katerina Bocci launched the restaurant in 1998, she knew that it would not be an easy thing. In the first three years, the restaurant had five employees, and we averaged about 40 customers each day.

We moved to a larger location in 2003 to offer more amenities. Since then, our number of employees has increased to 45, and we also serve more than 700 guests every day. We hope that our epic story will continue to shine.

We have a vast collection of Italian dishes on our menu. They include;
