“Average is About Right - for Chain Pizza”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Once upon a time, in a restaurant long, long ago, they had pretty decent pizza. Good enough that I would add their number in my phone. Alas, an evil force entered in, and as Saruman did, deceived the unsuspecting owners and convinced them to buy tasteless, marshmallowy mozzarella for their pizzas. The warning beacons were lt to call others to rescue them, but the force of the deception was to great and the inherent inability of the owners to ever hear any criticism as being worthy of listening to meant nothing would change. Once, the evil force could be blamed, but now no one but the owner is to blame for the travesty masquerading as pizza. Of course, people who think Papa John's and Dominos qualify as good pizza will love Bocelli's. But, if you have a tongue with a clue, stay away.

“Good Food - Bad Service / Long Wait!”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I was recently traveling in the Smokey Mountains where I visit often and was recommended to go to Bocelli's Italian Eatery. I ordered the special of the day (6" Sub) and I also got the Tomato Basil Soup. Well... The soup came out immediately and that was it. 48 minutes later I finally got the sub. By the time I left, I was the last one in the restaurant. No apologies, no nothing. Poor service! I will not return.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is my go-to place with girlfriends for lunch or dinner. Salads are great (though they stopped carrying our favorite dressing). Good wine menu. A bit hidden from main street but worth finding.

“THURSDAY TRIUMPH”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The wife stops on Thursdays to pick up the lasagna special. The combination of the spinach based lasagna and the side salad is great. We shall keep this a Thursday Triumph for years to come!!!

What an amazing find in the mountains. My wife and I tried the local seafood options and both the salmon and trout were wonderful to say the least. A must try if you are in waynesville nc.
