We were very surprised just how poor the food was based on some of these reviews. First, always be leery when a restaurant offers coupons in the local free travel guides. The pizza was not even as good as frozen boxed pizza in a grocery store. The manicotti was less than average. Just bad overall.

I am shocked at the poor reviews. I visit Charleston monthly and have eaten hear several times! I have always found the restaurant to be fully booked between the hours of 6 and 8. I always make reservations to ensure I get a good table, it beats taking a chance. Food and service has always been excellent and always fresh.... More

After our ghost your we were hungry. Bocci's was opened and we sat down quickly. The bruschetta was delicious, the chicken Marsala was fantastic and the chicken parm was very good. Loved the chicken Marsala and spinach. Exactly what I wanted. I wasn't sure it was going to be so good since it did not have the best reviews. Glad... More

Was told by hotel staff this was a good Italian restaurant and it did not disappoint. The service was excellent and the food was great. My wife and I ordered chicken Parmesan which was the best we ever had. Forgot to use coupon, but management took care of it.

We ate one night during our Charleston quick weekend visit.. It was one of the hottest days in the Holy City. Had to have the "white " pizza! Mussels were the appetizer of the day - terrific. Very friendly staff who offered to box up the remaining pizza for us

Just skip this place. After being in Charleston for five nights, we were in the mood for "non-low country" food (you can only eat so much shrimp and grits, after all). We decided to check out Bocci's as it seems like one of very few Italian restaurants. We made a reservation on OpenTable, which was unnecessary, because when we got... More

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
