Excellent food and service with an old world Italian charm. Order the “a little of this and a little of that” as an appetizer for the table

We told the waiter we wanted to be slow paced. They translated that into us waiting over a half hour for our appetizer and then immediately serving our main course. The place was not at all crowded for a Thursday night, but our waiter was hard to find...the fish salad was tough and seemed as though it had been thawed out. Not tasty at all.

I went with a group of 8 friends to celebrate my birthday, number 32, this is my second year celebrating my birthday in Bocelli. As usual the service, food and drinks were excellent. Another point that I find very useful is that they suggested different main dishes which were shared together, which is an excellent option if everyone wants to taste different flavors and types of food.

Excellent food. Probably the best prix fixe menu on Staten Island. The staff is so welcoming and they make you feel very comfortable. Our server, Samuelo, was so polished and friendly that it was a pleasure to talk to and discuss menu and wine options with him. We had such a nice time at dinner tonight that we already recommended Bocelli to our closest friends.

One of my great friends Andre from an Italian descent who is residing in Colombia travels every year in summer to Italy this year changed his plans and for the first time he came to New York. Upon arriving he told me the first thing I want to do is go to a restaurant for real Italian food. I recommended going to Bocelli. He took the ferry from Manhattan to Staten Island and it seemed like a very long trip when he went to Bocelli he felt he left America and was in a bit of Italy. Immediate great lady received us and take a table. and at this point he began for an unparalleled gastronomic experience where the service of the best which recommended us part of the specials of the day and we accept the challenge of asking for part of these and share them. the food of high standard gatromico the flavors of the real food Italian in each one of the plates was made with feeling. At the end of the dinner we all felt very impressed or without missing a detail came the dessert with a delusional cappuccino. At the end of dinner we received the check and it was very reasonable we expected a much higher bill but it was affordable. My friend's words were: "I have traveled to many parts of Italy. I know about gastronomy and I can tell you that Bocelli is the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to. Bocelli is not just a restaurant, it's a perfect experience of Italian food ... I'll keep visiting and recommend it a 100%”

My husband and I have date night, so with a Gift Certificate that was received we decided to try the it, and we were both equally pleased with the food, the service and ambience . We made a reservation through Open Table, and we arrived on time and were seated within minutes. From appetizers, main course to espresso and dessert we left very pleased.

Three of us for a Birthday dinner celebration. Everything was excellent! The seafood appetizer (special) was amazing! The entrees were veal chop, rib eye and branzino. Each was delicious. The service could not have been any better. I highly recommend this restaurant; we will be back soon.
Follow-up:
We dined here on Saturday, June 16th. This restaurant advertises that Saturday's special is Osso Bucco. We were extremely disappointed to find that they had none on this particular day. The manager was very apologetic, said it never happened before and would not happen again. We told him that was the primary reason for coming this evening. He asked us to please return again on a Saturday. So, I made a reservation for this evening (Saturday) hoping to get the Osso Bucco. This afternoon, I called the restaurant to verify that they had that dish available this evening. Nope! Reservation CANCELLED! I'm done; there are other great places to eat on Staten Island. Note: don't advertise that you have this dish EVERY Saturday because you don't!

Great food, the most authentic Italian I've had in the states I'd say. It's useful to be clear about your allergies, they are good at making accommodations.
