Ordinary. Nice visit, but it's just a meal .

I think the reviews have it nailed. You won't be disappointed but you won't remember it either. We stopped in around lunchtime. Nobody else was in there but us. That always gets me nervous. Kate, our server, very professional. A lot of waitresses over-service their customers when they are slow. She... read more

Very good Italian food at a reasonable price. There is a little wait if you go right at dinner time without a reservation. It is worth the wait.

Maybe I was there on an off night but the place wasn't anything special. I don't see myself coming back for a second visit. The atmosphere was pretty good. The waiter was a little off; we had to ask her to read the specials as an example. The food was average.

My daughter and I were traveling and had dinner here. We loved it. Service was outstanding and my eggplant was cooked to perfection. We would go back. Sorry to see negative reviews but that definitely was not our experience!

I went here with my wife and two daughters. Excellent value as our dinner with three separate appetizers, one drink, and a pizza was only $41.00. The calamari as excellent. The oil in which it was fried was very light, which I mentioned to the waiter. The mozzarella cheese was homemade in the restaurant and was excellent. The pizza was... More

We didn't have reservations so we sat near the bar instead of the dinning room. The house salad was disappointing and our entries were average - nothing special about our meal.

We had reservations and were seated right away upstairs on the 2nd floor. Service was good but not overly attentive. I ordered a salad without onions and when it came there were onions all through it. Our waiter took it back and brought another and when he did the dressing was full of onions. I would have thought that since... More

Went to Bocci's in Charleston with some friends. We arrived early, but the place filled up very quickly, which is always a good sign. Ordered the papperdelle con funghi, which our waitress said was a fairly new dish, which had been selling very well. The entree was very good. Had plenty of mushrooms and the Marsala wine was a nice... More

Stopped by for a early dinner with the family. Wasn't to many in there at first. I had the Flounder Involtini, it was really good I must say. Even at $22 it was good. The wife had Chicken Marsala, which was good, son got a cheese pizza - he got a 9 inch cheese pizza was huge. For desert I... More

We stopped here for an evening meal while on vacation. We were seated on the second floor where another couple was also dining. It was so quiet you could hear every detail of the other couple's conversation so we were not comfortable speaking either. A little background music would have been helpful. The service was fair although we never had... More
