Boccone South Ratings and Reviews
There are not enough nice things that I can say about this restaurant. Silvio always greets us as if we are close relatives, with a loud "Nice to see you".He now knows our taste ,so well,that he makes suggestion to suit our palate. I no longer need the menu since I listen to what he suggest. Its as if he is my personal chef. I keep coming back so often because I know what to expect and why bother looking anywhere else?
Once again, our dining experience was a TOTAL DELIGHT!!!
This is why we dine here regularly.
My wife's monk fish special(prepared to her liking) and my capellini with seafood from the regular menu were just absolutely delicious.
AND, the tiramisu I had for desert with my double espresso was absolutely the BEST I've ever had anywhere.
Wonderful ambience , terrific service and reasonable prices assure that you'l l walk out the door with a smile.
Silvio and Michelle run this place the way a restaurant should be.
I've been a few times recently and really enjoyed it but New Years Eve 2017 really solidified this as a wonderful local spot for me and my family. It's Italian and honestly I felt like we were in Italy. The owner was working the room and did a wonderful job describing the specials - which we thoroughly enjoyed. Everything was wonderful. Great way to spend the last night of the year.
This is our go to Italian restaurant. Food and service are always exceptional. Nicole are server tonight took great care of us anticipated all our needs. The specials were fantastic, the cowboy rib eye was great as well as the stuffed yellow pepper. Bravo!!! Always a great meal.
Went to Boccone South on Thursday before a SOPAC show. We shared a Caesar salad and eggplant special for appetizers. They were tasty. I enjoyed a pasta special,which had generous portions. Silvio is a gracious and attentive host who gave us a terrific bread pudding for our dessert. A great spot for good food and warm service.
Boccone South always promises a first-rate dining experience. Sylvio and his staff go out of their way to ensure that all of their patrons have a wonderful dining experience. It's by far my favorite place to dine, and I highly recommend it whenever I'm asked for a restaurant recommendation!
The kitchen messed up our order and prepared the wrong type of fish for 2 of us that we hadn’t ordered. They corrected it but it took a long time for our entrees to arrive as a result, and we had to rush through our entree and forego desserts and coffee to make it to a show at SOPAC on time. When the fish arrived at the table it was over cooked and the risotto it was sitting over was gummy rather than creamy. Very disappointing. Our waitress was very nice, it wasn’t her fault. She seemed overworked with too many tables. The host seemed ready to blame her but it wasn’t her fault. We will not be back. Don’t understand the rave reviews of this place.
Whether for date night, a special occasion, or just a weeknight out, this is the perfect local spot. The food is authentic, and there is something for everyone. If you prefer, pasta, meat, chicken, or fish, you will find something delicious!
Silvio, the owner, and the entire staff will make you feel like family. You can't help but notice there a lots of "regulars"...it's that good!
