I live in Georgia and my sister and her family live in Waynesville. Besides going to see them, going to Bocelli's is my favorite thing about Waynesville! The house salads are amazing thanks to the cranberries and sunflower seeds. I've had several pasta dishes and pizza and have never had anything bad. Last night I had the Palmero pizza which... More

Our family of 5 ate there last week and each had an excellent meal for a reasonable cost. The food was really good and plentiful. Service was excellent and the beer menu was extensive especially offering local crafted beers. I would definitely return.

Friends and I visited this restaurant for dinner. We each had a different dish. Each was excellent. Everyone was very friendly. Our server was excellent, and went the extra mile to take care of us. We will definitely go back.

Have been here a couple times and the food is always really good. Love the Garlic Knots. Also enjoy sitting outside on a cool night.

My wife just happened to see this restaurant, so we stopped in. The service was just ok however the food was outstanding. My wife had the wild alaskan salmon and I had the 12" butchers choice pizza. I took some pizza home because of the quality of toppings, I was full after 3 pieces. My wife said her salmon was... More

Me and some friends decided to try this little hidden restaurant while visiting the area. We got different things ranging from subs, salads, pasta and pizza. The subs and pizza were great! But as far as the pasta it tasted like they opened a can of store bought marinara and poured it over the food. Would not get again. We... More

The restaurant we had planned to go to was closed so this was our back-up place. It was great! Good service, nice beverage selection and very good food! The garlic knots are awesome and salads very fresh with delicious homemade dressing. Our entrees were oh so good as well. We're in town all week and can't wait to go back... More

This is a little out of the way from where we were staying but was worth the search. I like to try small local non-chain type restaurants when I travel and this one was a reward. The house salad was one of the best I have had in a long time with a unique combination of additions, like cranberry and... More

Ended up eating at this Restaurant twice during our week in the area. Very good gluten free selections including an excellent pizza. Sauce was perfectly seasoned as was all the food. Kitchen help walking back and forth through the dining room was somewhat distracting. Service was excellent.
