I Wanted to Love This Place

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... read 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.

Tried Bocelli on a friend's recommendation. We will definitely be going back. The food was absolutely delicious, authentic Italian style food. We had a party of 5 on a busy Saturday night. We call ahead and the table was waiting for us when we got there.The Waitress, Laurie was great. Treated us like family. Drinks were good, food was great... More

I've developed a fondness for Bocelli's. It's like someone took a north end restaurant and dropped it in Medford. Lord knows how long it's been there, but it has a nutty charm that I really enjoy. It has an extensive menu, all manner of Italian food, fish dishes...mad Italian deserts. There's an upstairs and downstairs, I think I like it... More

Growing up with a grandmother who immigrated to the US from Naples Italy at the age of 16 had lots of benefits, most evident in the culinary department. She would take a handful of this and that and make the most wonderful things. Every pasta was handmade from scratch, no recipe card in sight, light, fluffy and delicious. Bocelli's food... More

Bocelli's was a wonderful, low-key experience. We had a nice waitress from Sicily who was friendly and informative. I had linguine with red clam sauce. Perfect. Plenty of clams and excellent sauce. I order this whenever it is on the menu and this was one of the best. Very reasonably priced and enough for lunch the next day. My husband... More

Grew up in Medford and this place was DePasquale's Pizza many, many years ago. My neice is now living in Medford so we had to go to Bocelli's! Loved it! The waitress was very friendly and helpful with our selections. I had Chicken Cacciatore that you could get without the pasta - trying to cut down on carbs. My husband... More
