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.

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.

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.
