Both my wife and I ordered fish. Most restaurants over cook fish but, ours was cooked perfectly. The staff was friendly and attentive. The manager Rob was great, Paul the bartender mad a great martini. Overall a very positive experience. I would defiantly go back.

We've been going for years. We love it. Food was out of this world. My stuffed lobster tail melted in my mouth. Even better than I've had in Maine to be honest.

Food was outstanding as usual....service was not quite up to our past experiences. Altho the staff is also friendly and eager to please they seemed a little rushed and maybe inexperienced this visit. Nevertheless Bocelli's remains a place for fine Italian dining

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.

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.
