Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first time to visit Oggi Ristorante Italiano. Both our food and the service were outstanding. My husband and I shared the mussels for an appetizer and had the seafood pasta for our entrée. We finished our dinner with the chocolate cake. All of food that went by our table looked delicious! The restaurant is very small, so make a reservation. There is a nice outdoor patio."

  • "We tried Oggi based in a recommendation and so glad we did. Food was amazing. Try the mussels in sambuca!! We also tried the risotto and the trout special. Both were great. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive. We will be back!"

  • "I have been to Oggi over 10 times. Never had anything but an excellent meal, well served and with delicious and reasonably priced wines. I leave each time wanting to return soon."

  • "Oggi was recommended to me by a friend. I made reservations online and my husband and I went for what we'd hope to be a quiet, romantic evening. Wrong! The service was great but we walked into a smoke filled room, fault of the exhaust system and it was so noisy that we couldn't carry on a conversation. The food was ok, not what'd I'd hope for. I had linguine fruitti de mare , the pasta was fresh and seafood was good. It just didn't knock my socks off as I hoped for. My husband had breaded flounder, his fish was fantastic. Appetizer, calamari and zucchini was great and abundant, enough for four. I would not recommend for dinner inside but maybe for an appetizer and wine on the outside patio."

  • "This restaurant is always an option when we are thinking of where to eat. The food is great, the service also. The only criticism I would give is thatitis too warm/stuffy in the restaurant. The dining room is small, and kitchen somewhat open, so you can understand why this is. Overhead fans or a better air conditioning system would help this situation greatly. The food.....freshly made pasta and great sauces make this a go-to place for us and many friends!"

  • "I booked this because of Opentable for a business lunch. I had never been there but was more than impressed with our experience. I had a table of 6 and everyone raved over and over what a great choice. The food is terrific, Fresh pastas and plenty of options from starters and main dishes. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great Italian place with fresh ingredients and a great staff. Prices are fair for the quality."

  • "The place was bustling when we arrived. Even though we had a reservation, we had to take a table outside or else wait. Seemed to be a lot of walk-ups without reservations that took up many of the inside tables. Anyway, outside was bad, just not very attractive - their outside dining court abuts the parking lot. Despite being busy though, the service was reasonably speedy, and the waiter pretty attentive. Nice selection on the menu, and the food was nicely prepared. Large portions. Overall a nice experience-- if it were not so far out of the way for me, I would definitely return."

  • "Genuine Italian restaurants that aren't extremely pricey are rare. This is one. Food is creative, excellent and very fresh. Pasta made daily and new dishes are available always. I'm now a weekly visitor and have recommended to many people who all are now regulars. Can't ask for anything more from a restaurant"

  • "I love Italian food and a nice dining experience, and Oggi really satisfied on both fronts. Although we had a recommendation for the to-die-for Meat Lasagna, I had Penne Vodka (I can never resist that) and my husband had Veal Parm - both were excellent! Huge portions though, so I'm looking forward to leftovers tonight! Oh - and did I mention the Tiramisu? My husband called it "heaven on a plate." To sum it up - great food and reasonable prices!"

  • "This was the best meal that my husband and I have had in the 8 years we have lived in Charlotte. The service was PERFECT, attentive, but not intrusive. The food was superb, fresh, flavorful, and there were some fantastic specials offered. Absolutely loved OGGI, we will be back."

  • "This neighborhood Italian Restaurant was absolutely outstanding! It was recommended by a friend and co-worker, and certainly lived up to its billing with delicious, homemade pasta, creative dishes, excellent service, and a fantastic meal experience. We are telling all our friends about it. We had a reservation by 5:45 PM, and by 6:25 PM, the establishment was full. It is quite the find for South Charlotte! I have finally found the perfect lasagna!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We have been looking for a good Italian restaurant and we may have found our new spot. Everything we had was delicious. My husband said the lasagna was the best he has ever had! The wait staff was friendly and attentive."

  • "Celebrated my mother-in-law's and my birthday there on Friday the 13th! There's a combination if I might say so. Nonetheless, the meal was excellent and enjoyed by all, even my mother-in-law who compares everything to NYC. My mother-in-law enjoyed the Veal Portobello while my son enjoyed the Salmon Alla Rosmarino, my wife other hand went with the eggplant parmesan appetizer special and the insalata del maestro which was more than enough. I elected to go with the one of the evenings specials, which consisted of lobster tail, claims, shrimp, and mussels with pasta served with a lobster sauce. As we were celebrating a couple of birthday's our server went above and beyond in serving the cake we brought in. A great neighborhood place!"

  • "The food was great. I always seem to order the flounder Francois. Very good. The lobster sauce was delicious. However the noise level was loud and the wine list leaves something to be desired"

  • "Not the restaurant's problem, but a couple with a screaming child for a long time defeated the quiet ambiance I expected. They just allowed the child to scream and rant for too long. Service and food were good... "

  • "Food was very good. I had the lobster diablo. Wife had the lasagna. Restaurant was noisy due to high ceilings. Bar needs to carry more premium liquors. "

  • "Went on the recommendations of others and left uninspired. Hope to get the WOW that others hyped but had an average meal, good service and ambience that was OK for families but not what we expected. No problems-just not what I hoped."

  • "We visited OGGI for Mother's Day. It was very crowded but the staff was moving efficiently. We had a reservation and only waited a few minutes. We were seated inside (first available), where it was a bit warmer but not uncomfortable. The $35 3-course Mother's Day Special was a great option. Our apps were calamari, mussels and pear salad - all delicious! Our entrees were chicken marsala, crab-stuffed salmon and frutti de mare (with lobster!) - all outstanding and large portion sizes! The bread was fresh and served warm. Dessert was terrific, across the board. Even though it was packed, the wait staff was attentive and the food was served hot. Great wine too! We will be back to try a more "regular" night. Brava!"

  • "Went back for the second time on Mother's Day. The food was great, the outdoor setting was perfect. Most of all, on this visit, I was impressed with how efficiently and professionally the staff handled themselves while under pressure. They were polite and welcoming, even managing to find a table for the couple who showed up an hour early for their reservation and took up a table, sipping soda, on one of the busiest days of the year. I would not have been as patient and accommodating. "

  • "The food was great on my second visit as it was on my first one. Already thinking about celebrating my wedding anniversary here. The Mother's Day 3 course options were freshly prepared, with large portions and delicious. Service was a bit slower than my first visit but we weren't in a hurry so we relaxed into the moment. Well worth the wait. Don't miss trying this gem."

  • "Best Italian in the Ballantyne area. No need to go to South Park or other areas. Great food with awesome flavors. Service can use some improvement though. The server checked with me twice to ensure the sides were accurate with the Entree and the order came out incorrect anyway. But that is minor in my opinon..."

  • "A wonderful meal with great service by pleasant staff, and at a reasonable price. Who knew this was still obtainable in South Charlotte? We have been searching for a new neighborhood place since giving up on our old one (crowds, noise, etc). This is definitely our new favorite. The hostess was pleasant and knew what she was doing, not a teenager in a tight outfit without a clue. The wait staff were attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. And, the food was terrific! We had the chicken with port wine reduction and the lobster pasta special. Is everything perfect? No, but this isn't a Michelin starred restaurant. It's a fairly new little place in a strip mall. For a neighborhood place, this one is a winner. "
