Good food, very busy

The restaurant was very full on our Sunday night visit, so we ate outside on the patio. The food was very good and the service friendly.

Our waitress was as pleasant as could be for a group of 15. Food took a long time to be delivered. Food was typical for an Italian restaurant, but tasty.

We opted to eat at Bocelli's on Sunday night because it was one of only a handful of restaurants open. There were a fair number of people dining in the restaurant when we arrived at 6:30 - perhaps due to their 2/1 special on Sundays. I ordered the chicken picatta and my husband opted for the chicken caccatori with mushrooms.... More

We sat upstairs in the bar area. We ordered a glass of Chardonnay... The wine was not cold, it was warm. Ask the waiter for a cold glass of wine.. Salad was warm not fresh and cold.. The salad was mostly lettuce! The pizza took 40 minutes and when we did get the pizza it was soggy... When your order... More

I was introduced to Bocelli's through friends years ago and I will never regret it. When I am in Waynesville, I make it a point to eat one of my meals at Bocelli's. It's a small, hard to find restaurant on the backside of Main Street. However, the food is great, but not for those trying to loose weight. There... More

The Palermo pizza is delicious. I love the wheat crust. You can get red sauce or choose olive oil and garlic. It comes with spinach, artichokes and feta. Yum! The trout is also very good and comes on risotto. My husband liked the garlic knots.

Good service and food. Also has a full bar. My favorite dish is Tortellini Campagne; Italian sausage and mushrooms and tortellini in a great tomato cream sauce.

We went for lunch on a Friday with a group of 6. The food was very good and filling for the price. We ordered the vegetable lasagna, mushroom ravioli, and kids cheese ravioli. The house dressing was very good with the salads as were the garlic knots. Fortunately we had looked on-line before going and noted that you can call... More
