Came here to celebrate my sister's new job with her. The staff were friendly & food was amazing. I had the fish special which was delicious. Highly recommended
We tried Boccone South based on strong recommendations and we were not disappointed. Sylivo the owner was so very warm and welcoming. But let's get to the food. Warm bread to start. Which paired great with one of their appetizers - the antipasto plate. Great choices of salumi and italian cheeses. Great selections of pastas and entrees. But the best of all was the Osso Bucco. The night's special was the wild boar osso bucco. Flavorful, falls off the bone, melts in your mouth. So so good. Sylvio offers different kinds of osso bucco - veal, venison, lamb. Also, it's byob. No corkage. So bring multiple bottles. Definitely returning.
The food was delicious and the service was very friendly and efficient
First time we were there and we will be going back! Friendly service and good food. Menu plus many specials provide a wide variety of choices. They even prepared veal sorrentino for me although it is not on the menu. It was delicious! People sitting near us and several people I know go there often and say that it is consistently good.
The food is truly excellent, and the staff couldn't be nicer! Nicole was our server, and she was amazing! I can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant.
Went on Valentine's Day for which they had a "special" menu. It was overpriced, taking advantage of the larger than usual crowd that might show up on a Wednesday evening. The meal was nothing special. What appeared to be a veteran waiter chastised a new, young waiter in front of us. Bad form, and embarrassing for the young man.
Silvio was a wonderful host! The bread pudding dessert was amazing.
You can tell the place makes it a priority to have great specials with fresh ingredients. We had the octopus appetizer, chicken dinner special and parpadelle funghi pasta. Finished with the cooked to order custard dessert. Really special. All dishes were delicious.
Food is pretty good Italian/Mediterranean. Service is friendly but the front of house staff is a bit disorganized.
Always a good time and excellent meal, Silvio takes care of everything! Our favorite local spot!
Lovely atmosphere; excellent food; good service. Reasonably priced. A great neighborhood restaurant!!!!!!!!
I would have given 5 stars across the board, as the food and service here are amazing, however we waited 45 mins to sit for our 7:15 reservation.
Great place, outstanding staff, food was excellent! Very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. Will definitely visit again.
Close your eyes, scroll your finger on the menu and pick a plate : it’s going to be amazing!
Just one tip for dessert : ask for the home made Savayone,
Silvio will make it in front of you.
Silvio’s kindness and humor, as well as his team will make you have a wonderful time in the best Italian restaurant in South Orange / Maplewood!!!
The food from apps to dessert was amazing.
The service was even better!
