What a surprise. If you are not watching, you will drive right by it. Gas station in front and Big Bobs is just to the right of it. This was our second time back. The eggplant parmigiana is outstanding. The chicken parmigiana and veal parmigiana is good and tastes great. Food is served hot. The garlic rolls were good. A... More

The restaurant is situated on the corner building of a strip mall. The restaurant consists of a take out area separate and apart from the restaurant which has booths as well as tables. We went there with another couple for dinner. We had the Veal Picatta, Eggplant Parmesan and a Pizza and Calamari Appetizer. All of the food was excellent... More

The pizza was okay/good. The waitress was friendly and nice. The prices are decent. The owner is a moron, a jerk, and uses profanity every other word. What in the world??? There were kids there.

A friend told us about this place so we traveled about 15 minutes from The Villages to check it out. We are so glad we did. The servers were friendly and efficient, the food was flavorful. We had the eggplant parm, chicken francese, chicken parm and Big Bob's pasta combo All came with fresh salads and bread. My husband had... More

I had the Italian sub. Kids had pizza. Sub was toasted and cold, pizza was hot as the sun. Ordered on phone told time to pick up I arrived on time order was late. Almost 20 minutes late. It was just ok. Service was really slow and not really friendly just "matter of fact" type of people.

Definitely worth the 20 minute drive from The Villages. Third visit with a group. They take reservations. A full house for a Tuesday night. Joe Baddia entertaining a crowd pleaser. Good Italian food, reasonable prices for good and drinks. Excellent service. A pleasant surprise hidden behind a gas station.

Big Bob's is the latest, and by far the greatest, renovation of Ocklawaha's pizza parlor. I had only been in the place maybe a half dozen times in the over 15 years, but it's now a weekly lunch stop for me. The addition of a beautiful dining room last year has made a restaurant out of what had formerly been... More

From the outside you would never know what a quaint little Italian restaurant awaits you inside! It is not just pizza (which is excellent, by the way)! They have a full Italian menu and wine list. spacious booths and tables. They even had live music one nigh I was there and the gentlemsn was excellent. You will be pleasantly surprised!

tried Pizza at Big Bob's with friends, the pizza was OK, service was a little slow and price for a pizza $27, a bit pricey. Going to try the lasagna next time.
