I don't get here often enough, but when company comes to town, this is one of only a couple Waynesville eating establishments we'll consider taking them.

The food was very good,I had wild mushroom ravioli which was delicious. There's a large menu to choose from for anybody. The only problem was the service, our waitress rarely made eye contact and rushed away and forgot several things and seemed to forget about us at the end until a completely different waitress helped us.

The restaurant was OK, the food..........was just OK. Some restaurants have that upbeat feeling this does not. It could be much better than it is.

Finally visited Bocelli's after it was recommended by some friends we went out to dinner with at the Frog Leap Public House (FLPH). Ironically, the only reason Bocelli's came up in our dinner conversation FLPH was due to the fact they serve great breads with their entrees where as FLPH makes you purchase a pricey bread appetizer if want some...

Service was a bit slow, but food was very good. Big portions. Bread is a highlight - garlic knots are yummy. Off the beaten path of Main Street. Variety in their pasta dishes. Calzones are huge.

Food is good. They do not allow sharing which I needed to do because I cannot eat a lot of spicy foods due to health issues. Asking for an extra plate should not be an extra charge.

We enjoyed our lunch, from the plate sized slice, to the refreshing salad with strawberries. The outside seating was quaint. But the lack of devor was a disappointment when we went inside to use the bathroom. We would have easily returned for dinner if the place wasn't so stark. Enjoy
