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

My husband and I were spending the day in Charleston on our return from Edisto Beach and decided on Italian for lunch. We ordered the Bocci's Calzone and the Tuscan Chicken Panini. While the calzone was very good, I cannot say enough about the Chicken Panini. The fried prosciutto and garlic aioli combined with the perfectly charred grilled chicken breast... More

First of all, I'm from NY, where we have Italian restaurants on every block. So, my review is based on what I'm used to. The restaurant is nice. Clean, well decorated, etc. The service was very good. The food on the other hand was not good. The "red" sauce tasted like something out a jar of store brand sauce. NOT... More

A very nice pleasant Italian Restaurant in the heart of historic district. Good food, good service. Goond but not great and a little on the noisy side. Hard to have a conversation.

We stopped in Charleston on our way to Hilton head. We took the horse drawn carriage tour of the city and they recommended this place. It did not disappoint. The lasagna and egg plant were excellent. The service was fast and friendly and our table by the front window was great. We would definitely recommend this place for families.
