My favorite Italian restaurant in NJ. Silvio is the best.
Another wonderful meal at Boccone South prior to a show at SOPAC. Always a first rate experience at Boccone.
I enjoyed our dinner very much but one thing that bothered me was that the waiters hair was falling all over his face which was disturbing as he was handling food.............not really appropriate.....
Boccone South is the real deal. The freshest real Italian food in the Essex County, NJ. I don't know why this place isn't packed every night. The wait staff are amazing, the specials are inventive, the food is super fresh and cooked masterfully. The restaurant is quiet and conducive to real conversation (a real rarity nowadays). Easy to get a reservation. Highly recommended.
We love Boccone South and have brought many friends for dinner. The noise level is high at times but you can still converse.
Boccone’s is are go to restaurant as well as our friends. We were going to SOPAC that night. Everyone only wanted to eat at Boccone’s. The food and service is always exceptional. Silvio, Micky & Nicole (Simone) make you feel like your house. BROVO
We ave enjoyed Boccone many times. Unfortunately, the service was definitely off on his past Sunday evening. To say it was inattentive would be an understatement. We will try them again and hope for better results next time.
Food was excellent, as was the value. The restaurant is BYO, adding to the value, even though we forgot to bring some wine with us.
Maybe that's why we noticed that the service left something to be desired. Likely they were short-staffed on a Saturday night, but it seemed like there was only one server for the whole place. Why wouldn't management step in to help out on the busiest night of the week?
Silvio and his staff were excellent.
My favorite Italian spot. Silvio is the best. Love his food n service. Bring a great bottle of wine n enjoy the rest!!!
Delicious food, warm and welcoming service. Consistently good for years.
Food and service were excellent. The only complaint is the noise level. It does get loud but that's also because everyone is just having such a great time.
Being going to Boccone’s since we moved to South Orange 5 years ago. All our friends & family request to go to Boccone’s when they visit us in South Orange. We frequent Boccone’s at least every other week. The staff is great and treat you like family. Bravo
Yet again our meals were outstanding and the whole experience absolutely divine! Sylvio had a well deserved evening off, but Nicoletta filled in marvelously. It was dinner and a show, as always.
They make you feel like family from the moment you walk in the door. The food is always excellent.
Wonderful food.... excellent service. Lovely atmosphere.
Boccone’s is our grandson favorite restaurant, he live in Queens. He enjoys the Thai calamari, Barrata & tomatoes & now the veal Parmigiana. Boccone’s is our favorite restaurant also. The staff and food are beyond compare. It has been our go to restaurant since we moved to South Orange about 5 years ago.
Boccone South is always a pleasant experience: food, service and atmosphere.
My soup was tasteless and my main dish came out cold. Not very happy
This is the ONLY place to eat in South Orange for fine dining. Always fantastic service and excellent food and value.
When I attend performances at SOPAC, I have been eating beforehand at Boccone South. The food is good and the service is attentive. And it is very convenient to the venue.
Terrific food, service and pricing in a totally comfortable environment assure that you'll alweays be a satisfied diner. That's why we come here regularly
This was a good restaurant choice in the S Orange area prior to attending a show at SOPAC. We found the pricing a little high for a BYOB dinner, with dinner for 2 at around $100.
Go hungry! The menu is great and portions huge. Impeccable service
Almost empty. Tried to please food mediocre
This restaurant is outstanding. I went with my 2 sisters and had a great experience. The only downside was that it was packed and although we had a reservation we still had to wait about 25 minutes for our table. The customers do not want to leave! However the owner presented us with a delicious appetizer on the house as well as dessert! We felt extremely well taken care of and I can't wait to go back! So happy I found this place.
Food was excellent great choice of specials. Only problem was I made a reservation on Open Table and they were not honoring, became first in first seated. Was told they had a large party that night. Had to wait about 20-30 minutes for a table.
mediocre, overpriced, unorganized, waited 45min for appetizers and almost an hour for entrees lousy frozen bread pre heated prior to serving with the texture of large dough balls shrimp in scampi were overcooked and inedible standard italian entrees were flavorless based upon our experience we have to question all the 5 star reviews silvio needs to get his act together
We have eaten here twice now and both times we had a delicious meal and a pleasant evening out
The food was amazing. It tasted even better the next day. Our server, Ana, was second to none!
A terrific place for Valentine’s Day. Ambiance was hectic but wasn’t overwhelming or too loud. Limited (more expensive) special menu for Valentines Day, but usual menu is delicious with large portions and is priced appropriately. Service is always fantastic and feels welcoming and authentic without being too much. Have been coming here for a few years and will absolutely continue. Somewhat of a hidden gem in the South Orange area.
Wonderful and entertaining as always. Silvio and his staff are friendly and personable.
The food was absolutely amazing, the service wasn’t great. According to our server they had a large party that threw them off but we had reservations at 745, didn’t get seated until 815, appetizers came right away, and then we waited over an hour for dinner. I would definitely go back to see if we caught it on a bad night because the food was some of the best Italian food I have had!
Excellent Italian food, and great service. Exactly what you'd want in a high-quality local Italian restaurant.
Nice place serving mostly classic Italian food, moderate prices, BYOB so that helps, parking lot in back.
Silvio and his team deliver a delightful evening. The food and service were excellent!
Always a wide variety of off-the-menu excellent specials and friendly, attentive service. The food is creative and excellent with emphasis on fresh ingredients. The welcome and attention is what family should be like!
Great food, great service, never disappointed. My South Orange go to!!!
