-ask an Italian (me) - This is the best in the Boston area

Best Italian food north of Federal Hill. Think North End of Boston before it became a tourist trap. Bocelli's does it the way I remember while growing up.

This restaurant was rated highly for Medford restaurants, but we were disappointed with the food, with the exception of the caesar salad. It was plentiful and fresh, with a nice dressing and plenty of cheese and anchovies. The stuffed clams were rubbery, but our waitress kindly offered us a replacement. We chose the eggplant rollups, which were okay. The stuffed... More

Veal parmesan...Excellent. The ambience is quiet. Feels like you're in a little hole in the wall but the place is a gem. Simple Italian plates. Not expensive.

We had the in laws visiting and took the whole here for dinner. From the antipasti to the dolce, everything was fantastic. The staff were also so good about handling my difficult in laws and our toddler too.

The three of us (Sandra-Elsi-Roger) stopped by Bocelli's for lunch on the referral of a staff member at Bob's Italian Food Import's. The restaurant could use alot of renovations but the food was really delicious.

I really wanted to be blown away by this restaurant. While I liked it I did not love it. It is small and charming. The bread and olives to start are super yummy. I had chicken Orvieto and my companion had veal limone. Hers was wonderful while mine had very little taste. The portion size was nice but a good... More

The food is excellent and the service is friendly and personal. They make everyone feel like part of their family. I have held events there (surprise birthday) and a good time was had by all. They serve individual dishes or family style and portions are plentiful. No one goes home hungry - actually have enough to take home for another... More

This is a small place which reminded me of a diner type atmosphere. The food was good, the portions were large, and the price was right.
