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%”

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.
