The name La Bocca Ristorante was inspired by La Bocca della Verita (In English, "The Mouth of Truth"). We have adopted this famous sculpture as our restaurant's logo.
This sculpture is also known as one of the world's first lie detectors. Back in the Middle Ages, it was believed that if you put your hand into the mouth of the sculpture and told a lie, your hand would be bitten off. During the 17th century, the piece was place in the portico of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, where it has resided ever since.
