Diner Reviews
  • "Sub par at best for the food experience. Lacking flavor and ingenuity. So over priced for the quality. Our waiter had one other table besides us and still the service was poor. The waiter acted as if he was " in the weeds." We would not ever dine at Oggi again."

  • "When we arrived the restaurant was busy, had a couple of large groups and was pretty noisy. our booth sat off to one side so the noise didn't bother us much. We started off with a couple of small plates for appetizers. One was very good the other (calamari, one our favorites) was cold and extremely chewy. Definitely do not recommend it. The Cesar salads we large, but the the lettuce was warm and limp and nothing notable about the dressing. But the Lasagne was wonderful as was the veal dish, which was pounded very thin and melted in my mouth. We will be returning but will stay away from the Calamari and salad."

  • "The food was very good and the price within reason. However, it was very warm and smoky in the restaurant which made it quite uncomfortable and we began looking forward to finishing and leaving. Also the tables were quite small for our party of five and the long plates they use were not appropriate for the table size. It was Friday and therefore quite crowded resulting in it being very noisy to the point of distraction. My wife had lobster which was overcooked and dry. The cannoli desert couldn't get much smaller than the three morsels bites they give you. Otherwise the food was good but there's too much other distractions that did not make it a pleasurable experience."

  • "Great food, service was not the best but the owner apologized and corrected the situation. Unfortunately a hail storm knocked out one air unit and the air temp was very warm. We will go back when air is fixed."

  • "Glad we went. I saw reviews from others and wanted to try it. I go to Italian restaurants all over. I like to find new ones to see if they are really good. They did accommodate me making sauted garlic and oil for the delicious bread they have. Good food, very good service."

  • "This restaurant is across the street from my health club. Since it was close to where we live, we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We made a reservation for 6:30 on a Friday night. We were seated immediately. Our waiter, Jose, was excellent from start to finish. My wife had the strip steak and I had the trout Livornese. Both came with linguine with oil and garlic. Both dishes were excellent. My wife and I are originally from a New York City suburb and I can only say that the oil and garlic on this pasta was the best I have ever tasted and was certainly equal to and probably better than anything we have eaten in New York City. This chef understands seasonings. Although prices are a little high, it was well worth it."

  • "Loved the lobster cream sauce! Rainbow trout was also very food. We sat outside, but every time the door opened I could hear the roar from the dining room. I think it would be too loud for some people who are sensitive to that sort of thing. We have been here twice now and both times the service was friendly and the food was great. The service was a little slow the last time we were there, but I think it was because they were short handed, not indifferent or inefficient. Food was hot when it came to the table so it had not been sitting around."

  • "We live in Huntersville, 40 minutes away. We've been 4 times since we discovered it 4 or 5 weeks ago. That should tell you something. Eloy has been our waiter each time, the owners son. At 21 he is the most professional server we have had, maybe ever. Helpful, friendly, offers suggestions -- all of which have been home runs. We would come to this restaurant just for him, but the good news is the food is fantastic. I have had lasagna, chicken, pasta, mango cheesecake, flan, salads, mussels, and many other things. They have all been out of this world. Please, do yourself a favor and come here. The prices are reasonable, the service is fantastic, and the food is a home run!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Oggi is our favorite Italian restaurant. The food is superb and the wait staff efficient, polite, deferential, everything you want. They need a better beer list, but that is all I can complain about!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "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."

Fresh mozzarella and prosciutto, house made linguini. Our waiter was excellent, knowledgable, friendly and accommodating. We will definitely come back again"

  • "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"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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 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!"

  • "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!"
