Delightful evening.We started with the bruschetta--perfectly served and garnished. The gnocchi was great and we were surprised to even find a vegan offering--sauteed tofu with vegetables, which our son had. We dined al fresco on the patio, which made the meal even better. Our server, from Italy, was efficient and gracious.

Menu was well priced but not extensive, could have done more to have more authentic dishes to the list of dishes but what we had was good.

We stopped here on a whim after discovering that the restaurant we had hoped to enjoy ( just across the street) had suddenly closed. Al Boschetto was a treat! I had the penne arribiatta and it was PERFECT. My mom had the lasagna and raves as well. We were very pleased!

This spot was just OK... the food, the service, the facility. Actually, the service was poor. We had to continuously search out our waiter. At the end we had to get up and start to leave in order to get our bill. The food was blah and reminded me of a frozen dinner. If you want excellent Italian food and... More

I do like my pizza and Al Boschetto did a fine job. I was having a quick meal, so didn't linger to take in more of the menu, but I will return. Vegetariana Pizza was well cooked and the ingredients were fresh, which is not often the case in many restaurants. Restauarant is upper middle in the sector going by... More

Lovely little restaurant. I dined alone and staff very attentive. Would not suggest the tiramisu but my meal was wonderful.

After a week of pub food we were ready for something different. Al Boschetto was within walking distance of our hotel so we reviewed the menu and were very happy with the authentic and reasonably priced food with good choices. We tried the gnocchi, ravioli and spaghetti Bolognese among our party and we all enjoyed our entree and shared an... More

The board outside said gin & tonic, ribeye steak, fries and salad for €18.50. That's exactly what we got, plus a free limonceillo! Pleasant service but we probably would have had more if asked.

Went there hoping to find some propper italian food after having read various reviews here. Food was oke, but not as good as i had hoped; risotto for me and calzone for the misses. Taste was so-so, but the typical finesse signature was missing. All this was not helped by the suggested wine (which turned out to be the most... More
