Family-style Italian restaurant with great food

This restaurant makes you feel like you are visiting an Italian family's kitchen. Good, home-cooking with excellent eggplant parmesan and fabulous pizza! They have a great deal on take out pizza Sunday through Thursday night where a large cheese pie is only $7! If you do go in to sit down, ask for... read more

I married into an Italian family 30 years ago and have never looked back. Growing up in the suburbs of Boston, we never really ate in the city and always opted for small family restaurants in the 'burbs'. My father in-law actually owned and operated restaurants in Boston when I first met and started dating his daughter and as an... More

We love Italian food, and Bocelli's is by far the best in the area - which is saying a lot in this Italian neighborhood. Order the salad - so good and includes dillybeans and other pickled delights. The pasta dishes are hands down to die for, and the pizza is the best you can get outside of authentic NY slices.... More

This was a great new find for us. We went on a recommendation through a friend and were pleasantly surprised. It reminded us of the quaint restaurants in Italy. The food was delicious - recommend the arancini and the artichokes as appetizers. For dinner the chicken cacciatore, fruita de mar! Go a little early, have a drink at the bar... More

No matter what you order, you will find it a delicious entrée, with great fresh bread and mixed olives and happy friendly wait staff.

Bocelli's is my favorite Italian restaurant north of Boston. Family owned and operated, service is wonderful, food is fantastic and you feel like you are at home! Nick and his family make everyone feel like family. The food is so delicious, we have so many favorites it is truly hard to decide what to order. My husband's favorite is the... More

Service is good, but the food overall seemed bland and unimaginative. Clearly, this restaurant has been around for a long time, and both the decor and the menu are in need of an update.

We had our post-funeral reception here and it was very well received by all in attendance. There was plenty of delicious food as well as fresh coffee and drinks from the bar. Everyone was delighted that they could take home what wasn't eaten from the buffet. The BIG hit was the giant antipasto served beautifully in an enormous silver bowl.... More

My husband and I are regulars at Bocelli's -- for us it's a comfort locale with comfort food and familiar friendly faces serving good no frills food. It's relaxed, affordable, can be noisy with happy sounds, with consistent basic and fresh food.
