Il Bosco Ristorante & Bar
It was our second visit toIt was our second visit to Il Bosco with friends. We all enjoyed it. The only down side is there are not many vegitarian / vegan options for those who are. Other than that its a nice location with indoor/outdoor dining & friendly staff. I would recommend to family & friends. Looking forward to going back in the future.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss a wonderful opportunityIl Bosco is a gem of of restaurant tucked away on a side street in Davidson. What a perfect neighborhood, Italian restaurant! We could not have been happier, a real neighborhood feel but intimate. We chose the patio for a warm evening.
I had a delicious hand made pasta with broccoli rab and my husband had the most succulent, perfectly cooked lamb infused rack of lamb. We ordered grilled vegetables in addition and the meal was perfect with a nice barolo as a great choice. A word about the bread, "fatta della casa" , as is the pasta, with the most wonderful, real crust, served with marinated cannellini beans. We topped this off with limoncello cake that was lighter than air.

The food is excellent, the staff is tremendous, and the down home feel is wonderful. I can't recommend this place enough.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was the first time thatIt was the first time that I went to Il Bosco Ristorante & Bar. I took my partner for our anniversary. It was over all a good experience. The food was a amazing. My only complaint is that the dining room wasn't very large and the tables were close together and without even trying you could hear the table next beside you's conversations.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always a great experienceAs always a great experience to have dinner at Il Bosco. The food is so great and the people at this Italian Restaurant are so friendly. Just love the place.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional; not many like itVery few places where anything I've had, I would be happy to have again; and very few places where the desserts are better than what my family cooks up. This is one of them. I've had pasta here several times years ago (when I came here on business). This time I was on vacation. I went with a veal dish, which was tasty but not as exceptional as the pasta. First time visit? Get the homemade pasta. Fantastic.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMflat bread pizza at the barWe've been to Il Bosco a number of times and always enjoy it. They serve an appetizer size flat bread pizza at the bar, that's not available in the dining room, so my wife routinely insists that we catch a drink at the bar...and a pizza...before moving to the dining room for dinner. Outstanding staff and service is their hallmark. The food is consistently great, and I find myself leaning towards the specials. Tonight it was Arctic Char, which was simply terrific.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur absolute go-to restaurantOur anniversary today, so we decided on dinner at Il Bosco. We've been there many times before, and the warm and friendly staff, consistently great food, excellent service and intimate dining...11 tables + a few outside...is a combination difficult to beat anywhere. Jimmy the owner is _always_ there, and our experience there is consistently top shelf. Our absolute go-to restaurant in the Charlotte area. After our dinner, I thanked Jimmy and his staff for having such a great place to go to...that's how it feels.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
