We found Bocelli's on a Sunday when most other restaurants were closed. We sat downstairs and realized quickly what a workout the staff had because the kitchen was upstairs. I ordered the Philly Cheesesteak with only mushrooms; however when it came it was loaded with onions and peppers. The waitress seemed like it was my fault but in this case... More

Love this place for that necessary regular 'Italian fix'. Great salad with house dressing. Usually fast service and happy servers. One of my regular 'go to's' when I want to eat out in Waynesville.

My wife and I had heard not so good things about this restaurant, however we figured we'd give it a try. Very SLOW and inadequate service. Food is highly overpriced and didn't taste much like authentic Italian. We HIGHLY recommend to spend the extra 10 minutes to go to Frankies in Maggie Valley!!!

The food at Bocelli's was great, I recommend the garlic knots as the side order they were some of the best i have had. Their trout and risotto were very tasty.

We stopped in for an early dinner and were delighted with the service and the food. It was much more than we could eat and the pasta was superb. There was a slight mix up with one entree that the server caught before the plate ever hit the table. The meal was then served as ordered and we were treated... More

We have been going to the NC mountains for a long time, but only recently found Bocelli's. The service was excellent. We ordered a cheese pizza and it was very good. You can order pizza, or entrees. The restaurant felt very festive and vibrant. We will definitely be back when in the area.

Then for dessert we had the Cinnamon Knots with a lots of icing. Great service and DELICIOUS food. Be... More

On our quest for the perfect cheese pizza (because you can't tell how good the sauce, cheese and crust are with all of the extra toppings), we went here for a large cheese only pizza. Talk about yummy! Delicious pizza! I haven't had the absolute best service here, but it isn't the worst either. The food is so good that... More

Visited with my in laws and babies on a Sunday night. Was one of the only places in town we could find open. Everyone was so nice and accommodating! Philly Pizza was delicious but the trout tasted a little "fishy".

Group of nine friends had a good meal here with very good service. Prices are reasonable and the menu contained a great variety of dishes. My Chicken Piccata was excellen and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his pasta with meat sauce. Make sure you try the garlic knots - they're great. Portions were large enough that several in the group took... More
