Only stopped here because Bocelli's offered outdoor seating and we were traveling with a pet. The food was terrific, home made mushroom and cheese raviolis were the best, other family members ordered shrimp scampi, fettuccini Alfredo, baked penne pasta, all was very good & reasonably priced. Bocelli's offers a kids menu. It was a Sunday night and they were out... More

The title says enough. The food was so so, but our service was so awful I will literally NEVER try this place for a second time. And I ALWAYS give second chances.

Always good, but my favorite is the Trout Bocelli - lemony, capery goodness on top of risotto and added touch of julienned veggies. And the side salad with its sunflowers, cranberries and house dressing is awesome. Love that you can split the entree int o2 parts and still get your own salad and sides for only $5 more!!! And when... More

Was there with family, the service was fast and the food was good and the portions were large. I had spaghetti with meat sauce and it was more than I could eat. There was a large number of people there.

We were a party of six and opted to eat on the charming little patio. The hostess and our waitress were very accommodating and attentive. The menu offers a variety of pizzas, calzones and entrees all made from scratch with fresh ingredients They also have an extensive wine list that is very reasonably priced. Tuesday night they have karaoke next... More

Super good food (I had a chicken florentine pasta, my sis had grouper.) My salad was good, her tomato bisque soup, yummy. We liked garlic knots, and the cinnamon knots, well, I wish I could eat a dozen! Our server, Marie, was the perfect blend of speedy, accurate service, and friendly, genuine caring. I will ask for Marie again!

I made reservations for my wife and I. We arrived about 10 minutes early and were promptly seated in the upper level which is what I had requested. Service was excellent and very fast. The meals were very good and had good size portions. The restaurant was busy and very full. After appetizers of breaded mushrooms and mozzarella sticks my... More

Our waitress was as pleasant as could be for a group of 15. Food took a long time to be delivered. Food was typical for an Italian restaurant, but tasty.

The restaurant was very full on our Sunday night visit, so we ate outside on the patio. The food was very good and the service friendly.

We opted to eat at Bocelli's on Sunday night because it was one of only a handful of restaurants open. There were a fair number of people dining in the restaurant when we arrived at 6:30 - perhaps due to their 2/1 special on Sundays. I ordered the chicken picatta and my husband opted for the chicken caccatori with mushrooms.... More
