We stopped here for a later dinner on our last night in Charleston. We started with the Arancini. The sausage tasted funny and it was not what I expected. My husband had the duck and it was very good. I had the chicken picatta. Both dishes were served with risotto that was under done. I wish we had chosen a... More

My wife and I had dinner here about 2 weeks ago and while the restaurant looked promising, our experience was unpleasant at best. The food was average and the service was decent. The manager (female, early 40's, short blonde hair) greeted us after an issue with the appetizer and seemed condescending and genuinely uninterested in the quality of our experience.... More

After eating 9 days of seafood & low country food we found Bocci a delight. Nice atmosphere great warm bread and olive oil. My husbands chicken very generous portion without overwhelming. I had the seared duck breast done just right and prices reasonable. The doors open to the street so you feel like you are eating outside.

I visited Charleston for the weekend and friend suggested that we go to Bocci's for dinner. Everything from the food to the service was fantastic and our waitress, Marissa, was extremely welcoming and knowledgable about the menu and wine pairings. I highly suggest trying out Bocci's when looking for a great meal.

You must have dinner at Bocci's when visiting in Charleston! It was the best Italian food I have had in a long time. My sister and I started with the fried mozzarella which was amazing because they actually make their own mozzarella. We then got the Flounder and the Duck entrees which were also extremely tasty. Our server, Marissa, also... More

Bocci's served some of the best Italian food I have ever had! My husband had the chicken Marsala and I had the chicken picatta. Both dishes were juicy and delicious. We went on to enjoy the tiramasu for dessert which was also some of the best we've ever had. Being Italian I was not expected to be blown away, but... More

Visiting from SF and in search of good Italian food after a week of Southern style dishes, we were happy to find Bocci's. Checking the menu and finding no veal dishes, I wondered if it might be just another pizza joint masquerading as a ristorante. They did have some veal-like entrees, substituting chicken and I was pleasantly surprised how delicious... More

While my friend and I were visiting Charleston, we were craving some good Italian food, but couldn't seem to find anywhere to go. We stumbled across Bocci's, decided to try it out, and it ended up exceeding our expectations. We were starving so we started out with both the Arancini and Bruscetta Duo appetizers which were amazing!!! We then went... More

We recently returned to dine at Bocci's after a several year absence, causing us to ask why we hadn't come back sooner. A nice little corner Italian restaurant with great food and atmosphere. I love the indoor/outdoor feel to the place when they open up the french doors to the street. The wine and beer choices were good, the food... More
