Service was outstanding - warm, welcoming, professional, and accommodating. Our server seemed to truly enjoy telling us about all the specials and helping out with any special requests. He was ably assisted by other staff in clearing used plates and, keeping water glasses filled. There were 5 of us, not 3, and we all found our apps, entrees, sides and desserts to be absolutely delicious.

I don't think they overcharge for the quality of the food and service given the current demands of our economy - but for anyone on a budget I would save this restaurant for special occasions.

We made a reservation but they made us wait about 30 mins and then sat us near the bar. We were told we would be “taken care of” but had to flag down waiters to get serve us or bring things. When they did come they were warm and engaging, but then we had to wait a long time for what we needed.

Waiters were friendly and attentive, owner was walking around and checking on tables all night.We waited about twenty minutes for our entrees but it was worth it, the food was delicious. I had made a reservation for my fiancés birthday and upon arriving, the host said happy birthday and the waiters said happy birthday to him as well. As long as you don’t mind loud noise levels, I highly recommend this restaurant. Will definitely be coming back!

This was a perfect dining experience and a real gem to find this neighborhood spot. We were passing through and found through an Open Table search for the area. Food was wonderful and the service was a level you just don’t see anymore these days. We will absolutely be back every time we are local again. Highly recommend.

Took our cousin out for her birthday and enjoyed an evening of fine food and exceptional attention. Would keep Bocelli at the top of our list as the place to go for a fine meal, a wonderful evening out or any occasion for celebration.

Went for the first time. I read reviews for positive and extremely negative here before going. Seating was quick and easy, Like many others said, service and food was good overall except the baked eggplant was cold inside for my incidence. An one time experience for me, I would not go back because of affordability ($110 total for 2 apetitizers 2 entrees with no drink). Choices of Italian restaurants are plentiful around
