My husband and I had lunch here today after our walking tour of the highlights of Charleston. This restaurant was near by and we were exhausted so we stopped in. It is a small restaurant with great charm. The staff is very friendly. He had the meatball sub and I had lasagna. We also had mozzarella sticks as an appetizer.... More

This was my second time at Bocci's. We made reservations, so we were seated right away. My chicken marsala was very good. Really cute place.

I ate here for the first time while on business in Charleston this week. This is an adorable restaurant with a historical past. I love the coziness of the restaurant as you dine in an old family establishment. The place is supposedly haunted and the staff will show you some pictures to prove it. I selected that juicy chicken marsala... More

This was a very good dinner served by a good staff. The atmosphere was nice and full of history. We enjoyed the spaghetti and baked ziti. Would come again....

Came here on a Thursday night. We did not have reservations. If we ever come back we will NOT make that mistake again. The hostess crammed my party of 3 around a small bar table. I asked if we could be moved and she said that the other tables were for reservations. While we were waiting on our food I... More

We liked Bocci's. Our service was great and the restaurant is very nice. The value is good but the food is average. I got a calzone and it was OK. It wasn't bad but I can get a better calzone at our local sub place here in Morrisville. My wife got a margarita pizza and said it was fine but... More

We started coming here 16 years on our honeymoon, we try and eat here every time we come down. It was great then and is great now! From the great service to the great selection of food and drink it is well worth the visit. The prices are really reasonable as well. Don't pass this one up!

My mom was in town visiting so we though we would give this place a try (although the yelp reviews were not great). We should have listened to yelp. Although our waitress was nice, the rest of the staff seemed standoffish especially the manager. The tables were crammed in and the food was terrible. We ordered a bruschetta duo appetizer... More

Went for dinner during our stay in Charleston - July 2014. We were seated promptly - the staff was doing their job - not very welcoming . We were very disappointed in our meals. I ordered a meal with red sauce it tasted like a sweet jar sauce and was very pasty. My husband had a white sauce which he... More

A couple from our former hometown comes to visit once or twice a year. Last year we had dinner at Bocci's, and they liked it so well they asked us to make reservations again this year. I love using Open Table reservation service! Our table was by the glass doors, as requested, and we were seated promptly. The calamari was... More
