Never a bad meal and they always make you feel like family!
Wow. This place was delicious! Every dish we ordered as a table of 6 was incredible. I can’t give 5 stars bc the decor is dated, the music was not great easy listening, and they need a liquor license, but man, this was the best Italian food I’ve had in quite a while. And a great array of menu options. Service was also excellent.
As usual, Silvio put on a great show for us and our guests. Excellent menu with the specials. Our guests were blown away by the friendliness of the owner and staff and we finished our meals with Silvio’s Authentic bread pudding.
Delicious food.... Delightful wait staff... Chef greets and cares for customers
Disappointing night at a very good restaurant. Tuna main course came out in an awful condition. Pieces are the end of the tuna steak and looked and tasted awful. Sent back the dish and got bland salmon instead. Would never go back except we know that food is good at this local restaurant USUALLY. Waitress was accommodating but food was quite a setback.
Silvio welcomes you like a family member. The menu including the specials is extensive, and the food is excellent. I have been fortunate enough to visit 44 U.S. States and more than 50 counties and have been to many of the best restaurants, however, I have never encounterd a server who is more professional, attentive, charming and knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients than Nicole. She is absolutely amazing, and I request her as my Server everytime I visit Boccone. Boccone is a local treasure.
Consistently good with some standouts (pasta with seafood, silky bursts appetizer, bread pudding/homemade gelato), but what makes this one of my favorite restaurants of
all time is the ambiance. Silvio and Nicole will remember your name, favorite food, and welcome you like a member of the family. I love bringing friends here and watching them fall in love with the place, and there’s no sweeter spot for date night after a tough week. BYOB— no corkage fee, because they’re awesome, and they’ll treat your wine well.
Excellent food, excellent service!
We've been to many Italian restaurants, locally, NYC, Italy. This is one of the best!
The location is perfect and the food is very good, but our server made all the difference in making our evening a lovely time to get together with friends for a night out.
Found this place by accident... we actually found a different Italian restaurant in the same neighborhood, but didn’t realize it was closed on Mondays. Open Table to the rescue, this place was right around the corner from the first choice. The acorn squash and apple soup was different- and delicious. I had the special which was spinach- basil gnocchi with garlic shrimp sauce. Wow! Super delicious! Huge portion with s lot of shrimp. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Our server was authentically Italian (might have been the owner?) and was happy to adapt the menu to my vegan dinner companion... subbing eggplant for the shrimp and a tomato based sauce for the garlic sauce. FYI though - If you want wine, bring it with you.
Great service, very accommodating. Food was wonderful. It was a little loud but they put us in the back where it was relatively quiet.
I had the walu special, one of the tastiest pieces of fish I've ever had. The burata salad was also very good. Silvio, the owner, is always extremely welcoming.
Silvio and his crew are always a pleasure! Aside from the top notch food . Love this place!
Another wonderful meal with incomparable hospitality courtesy of, the ever charming, Silvio!
Been coming to Boccone's since we moved to South Orange four years ago. The selection of meals and the service is beyond compare. Nicole our waitress is excellent, she usually know what we're going to order before we do. Our friends who live about an hours south of us always want to come up to go to Boccone's, their favorite restaurant. A great experience as usual. In addition, it was one friends birthday. Nicole and the whole staff came by to sign Happy Birthday, a nice touch. Our grandchildren's first choice for eating out.
This is definitely my favorite area restaurant. The food and service are excellent. The host, Silvio, always greets you very warmly. After presenting you with the menu he recites the specials of the day. He does this showing his passion and love for the cuisine of his native country. His Italian accent adds to the authenticity of the experience.
Another GREAT dinner:
the food, service and ambiance were as good every other time we've been here
We had a lovely dinner on Saturday night. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, and provided impeccable service to get us to our show at SOPAC on time. It was such a pleasure to dine here. They made us feel like family the minute we entered and were seated. We don't know how we we have missed dining at Boccone South before! We will be back!
Always a great dinner at Boccone!
The food here is outstanding and the owner is awesome!
Another phenomenal meal at Boccone South, 10 of us celebrating 4 birthdays in the family. We ordered beautiful salads and Arancini for appetizers, and a variety of tasty dishes for dinner. The ravioli special was extraordinary! We shared several desserts - the gelato is always superb. Always a pleasure dining at Boccone - the food was terrific, and service outstanding (Nicole is the BEST SERVER). Will be back soon!
Super dinner as always with incomparable hospitality from Silvio and a wonderful staff!
Great food, great service, and super-friendly owner/staff. Highly recommend this neighborhood gem.
Can’t get enough of this place and the amazing service and food. Thanks Silvio!
Service and food never dissapoint! Always a pleasure
The staff was lovely and the food delicious! This is our favorite “go to” place when visiting NJ. They never disappoint!
on a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give Boccone South an 12! The service is exceptional, everyone makes you feel like family. The food is consistently excellent, the menu has something for everyone. The daily specials are AMAZING - and there is always a long list of specials, with lots of seasonal items. The entrees are plentiful...but save room for dessert---the homemade bread pudding is worth every single calorie! This is our go-to restaurant, it never disappoints!
My second time having dinner at Boccone South and the food was excellent!
Will go back again!
The food, service, and atmosphere were great! I highly recommend Boccone South to anyone looking for a special occasion. My family and I went here to celebrate my graduation and everyone was pleased with the restaurant.
Wonderful food and ambiance as always. I want to thank Silvio and staff. I would highly recommend.
Overall not a great experience. The most annoying part was that the waiter wouldn’t put in our appetizer and kids order prior to ordering our main course. I’ve never been to a restaurant before where that was a policy.
We had a family get together dinner at Boccone South on Sunday and really enjoyed ourselves. The food is authentic and delicious, the portions are large, and the service is very friendly and warm. Looking forward to going back again soon!
Silvio and his staff were wonderful from the first course to the last. Great food all the time.
Nicole is a great server!!! The food, as always,—wonderful and so beautifully presented. Bravo Sylvio!
always have a wonderful experience--service and food.
we travel from the jersey shore to dine here. silvio always remembers us and
treats us like family.
the veal chop was better than NYC.
Another wonderful meal-totally great food and service at reasonable prices
It was nice, personal and quiet.
Good food and service!
Incredible experience. This was my second time there and it did not disappoint. Great service and incredible food. Got the gnocchi padia and it was incredible. Also try the fried calamari as an appetizer and get the bread pudding for dessert, it is to die for! Incredible little restaurant in south orange and reasonably priced. Love the traditional Italian feel.
Love this place and the staff. Silvio is the best!!!
