We enjoy eating at Boccelli's in Gresham. My wife loves the Tomato Basil soup and I am working my way through the pasta dishes. Usually way more than I can eat so it's two meals for one for me!

After a less-than-stellar experience at another restaurant in town while on a road trip, we grabbed the AAA tour book, saw the listing for Boccelli's and decided to give it a try. No regrets. Located in clean-looking quarters carved out of a place in the historic part of town & about a block from a municipal parking lot, it's easy... More

We've eaten here frequently while visiting my uncle in the Gresham area. This restaurant is handy (being right in the downtown Gresham area with easy parking) and we've never been disappointed with the quality of service and food. Atmosphere (inside) is relaxed and the menu has something to offer almost every preference including vegetarian. A very good alternative for those... More

Expected food to better than chain restaurant ( Olive Garden) but it wasn't. Had chicken fettuccine which didn't have much chicken and kind of bland. Didn't even come with bread or salad making it over priced. Have to say service was good. Did have a concern about cleanliness after visiting the restroom. Hope they pay more attention to cleaning the... More

This is really good Italian food. Dishes are interesting and prices are moderate. I like drawing on the paper tablecloth before dinner comes. At the same time this could be a very romantic night out for the couple in the next booth and both of us would feel we had picked the right place.

Love the food and atmosphere at the local place. Always have to think about whether we want to wait it out however as the service has been consistently way too slow for us. Food however is very very good and the atmosphere in the place is nice as well

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Gresham. The price for both excellent food and wine are reasonable. The service is always outstanding. We have been to Italy several times and this food is close to the wonderful food of Italy, without the plane ride.

We like Italian food. This is not Italian cuisine. The creamy alfreido, is just white sauce, no cheese, no flavor. My husband's lasagna was just tomatoes thrown on pasta, no seasoning, no flavor. Two quarter slices of toast only. No artisan bread. We don't plan to return. We weren't offered a salad, a bread basket, nothing. They do have good... More

You've got to be a pretty bad cook if you can't even boil a noodle or make decent sauce! Quite frankly, the ONLY people that would rave about this "Italian" food are people who have never, repeat been to Italy, never been outside of Gresham, Oregon, or had too much to drink. All, repeat all, of our meals were uninspired,... More
