Firstly, let me just say, this is my opinion, and due to the time this restaurant has been there, and, according to how busy it was on the evening, it is obviously popular with many! This was a Friday evening and the place was jumping! Having said that, my experience, was very poor! This was like a retro 1970's Italian... More

My family and I went to Bosco Nero last night for wifes birthday and as usual had a fantastic meal, Steaks cooked to perfection and 4 happy diners! Warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. So lucky to have such a good quality resturant so close to us.

Great food, warm welcome, fantastic atmosphere and reasonable prices. The authentic Italian flavours remind me of holidays and never disappoint. Our restaurant of choice in Blackwood.

I haven't been for a little while but every time I have been the food has been amazing. My daughter even had her 16th birthday meal here - they even provided a cake. This is my number one choice of restaurant.

Six of us had a fantastic meal without anything to fault. The food was extremely tasty and plenty of it. The service was first class with exceptional friendliness as we were treated like old friends or family. Looking forward to visiting again next time.

went to boscos on saturday night, great experience, really busy but it seems that no matter how many people are in the service and quality of food are the same - amazing! Loretta and her staff cant do enough for you and the atmosphere was lovely. Only our second visit, but we already think this place is a real gem,... More

Love eating here. Food is lovely but quite expensive. Traditional Italian dishes rather than just pizzas... very tasty dishes! Staff are friendly. Always busy and is quite popular in blackwood. Italian music is played for a relaxing atmosphere.

Went here purely from the reviews that I have read on Tripadvisor, and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Immediately seated however service was a bit slow. When the food arrived the portions were adequate and nicely presented. However, the deserts weren't exactly shown in a tasteful way; it consisted of the waitress holding a plate with three slices of cake on... More

Went with my wife for a dinner. Thought the prices were a little high, but when the meals came it was very good value for the money. The waitress was very happy and polite and could not do enough for us. Neither my wife or myself finished the meal, not for any reason other than there was too much. We... More

We ate here on Friday evening because we fancied something a bit more 'special' than the usual takeaway pizza before going to see a film at the new Maxime cinema (highly recommended). We both wished we hadn't bothered. It was our first proper meal out in Blackwood but if this is the second best food in town then I think... More
