The food was amazing
They didn't rush the meal
The waiters were very friendly and professional
I will definitely be back
Bocelli is always an excellent meal. The staff were all great and show how serious they take the overall experience to the next level. Our waiter, Samuel, was friendly, polished and knowledgeable. We appreciated his attentiveness without over doing it. We had the stuffed artichoke, baked clams and burrata for appetizers. We thoroughly enjoyed all the dishes. For entree we split the seafood risotto and it was a huge portion. Even though we were full it was so good that we finished a majority of it. All of the seafood was fresh and the sauce was tasty. It was an earlier Friday night dinner, but every table was occupied so I would recommend a reservation. We loved the food and Samuel so I can see us back very soon. I never think about my interaction with the valet attendant since it’s usually very short, but Bocelli’s valet was helpful, personable and such a gentleman. Bravo all around.
What a wonderful special occasion dinner. This restaurant rises above with the atmosphere and staff. Our favorite is hands down the calamari agrodolce.. This restaurant has never disappointed us.
Was a great experience, food was excellent and fresh staff was also exe
Always on point. Food is consistent and the service is impeccable.
Nice, quiet, well appointed restaurant. Excellent food and service. A pleasant and relaxed dining experience.
We loved our dinner
Food was delicious as always as well as the service and atmosphere. Glad we had reservations as it was packed all nights
One of the best restaurants we’ve ever been to! The food was absolutely amazing, the service was great, the atmosphere beautiful. It was pricey, but well worth it. I don’t mind paying for food, service, and ambience that is beyond excellent. So so so good. My husband had filet mignon that melted in your mouth; I had shrimp in a beautiful, smooth garlic sauce that was done to perfection. The service was attentive but never pushy. What else can I say? Excellent all around!
I had a reservation for 4 30pm and made it way in advance. I asked for a table more towards the front. They sat us at a table were my view would be of the wait staff and kitchen. The resturant was virtually empty. I asked for a different table and was told they were all reserved. Well I was one of the people who reserved a table. They refused to change the table. Further more the Hostess didnt even have the common courtesy to come to the table and speak to us. I left the resturant and went to a very nice one that cared if we stayed. Trattoria Romano. I for one will not pay high prices for food and have a view of the kitchen
everything was good dine early to avoid parking issues
The food was great!! It is always great. It was very crowded on this past Saturday night. I think they may have overbooked. We had an 8 o'clock reservation and we did not sit until 8:45. The bartender offered to buy us a round after we had already had 2 rounds. We declined. Service was very good after that. This is one of our favorite restaurants on Staten Island (maybe our favorite).
Great service, beautiful restaurant, good food, good selection, but way too loud. The big band music is killer, I couldn't hear my associate's conversations.
Food and service were great. Not rushed at all. We love it here
We had a great time. Food was excellent. Mike, our waiter was very accommodating and has a superb customer service.
It never ceases to amaze me how a restaurant can ALWAYS please. This is about my 6th visit to Bocellis and every time the food is amazing !!! The service is excellent and the restaurant itself is lovely. I could name everything I’ve ever eaten there but it would take too long. Rest assure that no matter your pleasure you will be more than satisfied. See you soon Bocelli’s!!!
Salads were fresh and flavorful. Soup and entres were delicious, piping-hot, and large portioned. Staff was attententive and service was quick/efficient. All this while there was a bridal reception and baby shower going on at the same time we were dining! The parking lot was packed because of this but valet was quick and courteous.
Great Italian restaurant.... All the service in everyway was Fabulous.....
did't have to sit at the bar..my reservation was honored as soon as we entered..the people are friendly and attentive..the food was just great....loved that grilled salmon!!!
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Great place for a special dinner.
Continues to have excellent food, service, atmosphere. Great for all occasions!
Bocelli's is always a great choice . Food is delicious , servers and staff are warm and friendly . My favorite place to dine.
Food & service inside the restaurant is excellent. Parking can be an issue. One of the vallet parking attendant was nasty because I parked in a legal spot in the parking lot and he said I couldn’t park there because it was for the jewelry store. The were no signs and there were other spots available. The jewelry store also closed minutes later. I believe the vallet parking attendants should go to a customer service training.
Great dining experience for any occasion. Beautifully decorated now for the holidays too. Friendly, knowledgeable waitstaff(bravo to Paolo) and manager(Bob)make you feel you are right at home. Worth the trip at any time.
We went with 2 friends and everything was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend this place for a nice delicious meal in a nice atmosphere.
Great food- Worth the trip from Long Island (except for the traffic) Terrific waiter
This is a comfortable and friendly place to take friends and family for a special event.
We enjoyed every minute of it.
Thought the food would be great and was disapointing. None of us liked our lunch. Steak pizzaola sandwich was weirdly strong with proscuto cut too thick and the sole was also a bit ruined with the sauce dumped on it. Desserts nothing special but we all loved our coffe esspresso and cappucino. Maybe we ordered the wrong things. Calamari app we enjoyed and the stuffed clams.
An excellent formal Italian restaurant with expertly prepared food, Pan-seared salmon was excellent along with its healthy plate of green beans, carrots and potato. Sunday night dinner noise was rather loud. A quiet table in rear may be preferable. Valet parking available with nice desert selections. Manhattan pricing and service, recommended for costly special occasions.
We have been to Bocelli many times and unfortunately, this is the first time I can say we had an awful experience. While the food was excellent as always, the service (or lack of it), by our waiter, "Sammy", left us feeling uncomfortable, embarrassed and insulted.
It was my husband's birthday. We waited a very long time for the waiter to come tell us the specials and to take our order. We finally ordered appetizers to share, then I asked if we could have a 1/2 order of the pasta special split between us to taste. Sammy said "yes, I can do that for you." Then the 3 of us each ordered our own entree. The apps came, then the entrees. About 5 minutes later, a large bowl of pasta was brought out. My husband said "it was supposed to come after the apps, and we are eating
our entrees now so we don't want it. " The server told Sammy who had not come to our table since we ordered. He was clearly annoyed and said, "Well you weren't specific about when to bring it....but fine, I'll take it for myself." No apology. Nothing. He only returned at the end of the meal, after someone else offered dessert choices which we declined, to take a to go order I requested. Seeing we were upset, he offered a drink. My husband told him how he made us feel and all he could say was "I'm sorry if you felt that way" then went to a table nearby and told the patrons that we were rude. They commented, kept staring at us and shaking their heads!
I paid the bill and a 15% tip. We usually give 20-22% because we know how hard the job is, and didn't want the rest of the staff to suffer. I told the hostess, and she called the manager and told him that we come there often. He asked me what happened but as soon as I started telling him, he cut me off and said "Ok let's get you a gift certificate!!!" At that point we left.....I wasn't looking for free food, I was looking for an apology....which never came. So we will not go there anymore, too many other restaurants that appreciate our business.
Very good food, our waiter was not very attentive, the drinks were very expensive. $12 for a gin and tonic, $14 for amaretto on the rocks ( not very much amaretto).
Never miss a beat here. Awesome baked clams and cold antipasto platter.
Ragu Della Nonna is a virtual Sunday Feast! A bountiful amount of perfectly cooked pasta with meatballs, sausage and a bracciole all loaded with flavor.
Feeling kind of full we shared a Lemoncello tiramisu ! DELICIOUS!
Always a winning meal
We went for dinner on Sunday. Service was great , food was wonderful and the service was fantastic. We had delicious lobster ravioli with crab sauce and shrimp and a halibut special. The fish was fantastic as was all the food. Great appetizers and drinks too!!
You can't possibly go wrong here; this is a spot that is always worth a visit because it never disappoints.
We had a lovely dinner at Bocelli - and lots of leftovers! The portions were huge and the food was delicious. We dined on a Saturday @ 7pm and the service (kitchen?) was a tad slow but they were very busy, so I give them some slack for that. I will say, that when our food came, it was piping hot. The waiters were very attentive. Our whole family enjoyed it - even the picky kids!
Over all meal was pricey but very good mind I the for the price could have been better. Got aboutv5 or 6 grilled shrimp with just some kind if salad m it could have come with something else for the price
First time for the pasta wheel. OMG. So delicious
Was very upset. We went for the cheese wheel and was none
Good authentic Italian food but a bit pricey. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Always love this place. Delicious authentic Italian on SI for half the price of marginal places in Manhattan. The staff is really friendly and accommodating. Don't hesitate to come here!!
