Always wonderful food and personal, top-notch service! Cozy atmosphere, quality wine selection.
High end Italian... unique dishes (ie pheasant, stuffed porked chop... generally non-pasta entree's didn't come with starch/vegetable.. dishes were thought to be overpriced because of that... entrees took quite a while to come, but knew everything was made to order... portion sizes adequate... service was fair... we would come back again and give it another try.... quality of meals was very good
Wonderful! Our 3 rd time eating there! Never a disappointment!
Wonderful as always! Very nice people! Perfect meal!
We very much enjoyed our meal on the outdoor terrace of the restaurant! The pasta was absolutely first rate - the mark of a fine Italian restaurant. So was my appetizer of fois gras. The dessert was a bit too substantial for my liking but it was very good. I can not compare with other restaurants in Davidson but we are certainly glad we chose this one for our evening out.
We ate outside in lovely small courtyard surrounded by flowers. We all lived our food esp. my black ink pasta with squid and his vitello con lemone.
I LOVE IL BOSCO!! This is my favorite ristorante. The owners and staff are wonderful. My guests and I always feel welcome. The food is excellent. Best of all, it is a wonderful place to relax and to have great conversations.
Intimate restaurant very close to our Inn. The halibut we had tasted as if it had jumped from the sea to our plate. The intimate courtyard setting was great. Best of all our server and service was top notch.
The Il Bosco menu separates it from the run of the mill choices many establishments present. Compliments to Chef Joseph. Ann and Jimmy are wonderful hosts where you feel you're having dinner at a friends home.
Excellent food. attentive but not intrusive service.
Favorite restaurant in Davidson.
Quiet and quaint with very comfortable seating in an intimate dining room -- it has become our favorite restaurant in Davidson. The food has always been exceptional from the fish specialties and pastas to the stuffed pork chop (yummy!). Make a point of making reservations - it is worth it!
As always, thoroughly enjoyed evening at Il Bosco. Jimmy & his staff are wonderful in every aspect.
Food, especially all ‘specials’ are excellent. We normally get mussels to start. This time they were not as good as normal.
Tables are comfortable. Restaurant has NYC small Italian restaurant ambience! Wonderful!
I would recommend this restaurant to any folks who love true northern Italian food!
Great location, food and service. Can’t wait to go back. You will not be disappointed. Had some good specials and menu changes frequently
Overall just a great dining experience. Many small details, and very thoughtful and approachingly classy actions by all the staff.
A pleasant evening in a quiet setting. Food was very good and changes by season. My veal was the most tender I’ve had. My wife’s bolognese was bright and creamy. The wine list is not huge but did have a nice range of varieties and prices. Pick your antipasto by the item and they’ll present it on one tray. The ambiance could use a little personal touch. Owner is on premises and made sure to visit every table.
We are locals that finally had the opportunity to dine here. Food was good and reasonably priced. We would definitely dine here again.
Dinne our with the wife. Great meal and excellent service.
Amazing food and great service. The menu is seasonal and never fails to be wonderful!
Our second wonderful meal there! Can’t wait to go back again!
Il Bosco was wonderful, as always. The owner and staff are very attentive. The atmosphere is quiet and nice. I always get the fish special, and the Corvina was perfection.
Great food and great service. The owners, Jimmy and Ann, treat you like a valued guest - every time. Perfect.
Delicious menu and specials. Unique Italian fare - no chicken on the menu - but the best pasta bolognese anywhere. Broad range of meats and cheeses to select from for a customizable charcuterie board appetizer. Also offers the ability to order small or large pasta portions at reasonable prices for a nice Italian restaurant. Everyone takes a portion of the large home. Well trained staff and friendly owner. Offers French press hot and cold teas - a real treat! Indoor and outdoor dining, weather permitting. A Davidson favorite. Rated a 4 and not a 5 due to plain atmosphere.
We are originally from Boston. Boston's North End is well known for its excellent Italian food. II Bosco Ristorante is as good if not better than the Italian restaurants in Boston.
Always a wonderful meal, true authentic Italian in a very cozy atmosphere
We will try them out 1 more time. Just felt it was a bit over priced. My dish was good I had the pasta with mushrooms and truffle oil. $21.00 barb had the salmon special which was good not great $26.00. We will be back
The food was amazing and our server was great. But the owner seemed inconvenienced when we first arrived, and we were interupted a lot during our meal. We will definitely be back, but I hope next time the service will be on par with the flavors.
Had dinner for the first time. Absolutely wonderful....excellent food, service and environment! A+
Fantastic. As usual.
Was a nice plates for a double date to get together and chat. Quaint and cozy staff was friendly overall food was very good. Pricewise about what you’d expect not cheap but not outrageous
Everything we ordered was excellent. It was our 2nd time here and it doesn't disappoint - we'll definitely be going back soon. This is by far the most authentic Italian in the area and highly recommend it. Appreciate that they use fresh simple ingredients with lots of flavor!
Neighborhood gem! Great food, attentive service. Never disappoints.
Date night dinner. Food and service first rate. Not inexpensive but on par for quality and atmosphere. Will be back.
Service and food is always great. Very helpful and never disappointed when asking about the wonderful wine selection.
We took friends who hadn't been here before. Everything was great except the food. Three of us thought the food was not up to the standards they usually set at the restaurant.
Food is always excellent, service is impeccable, and everyone is friendly.
Great place to have a quiet romantic dinner. Would recommend.
Your basic old fashioned Italian restaurant. Small and quiet with great food and great service. Outdoor area looks like it would be lovely in the summer!
We love this place! This rating was a little low on the service only because they didn’t get our order right but that isn’t usually the norm. (Just in case anyone reading this goes and has a similar experience, know that we have been going and 99% of the time, it’s a wonder evening)
This was the second time that I had been to Il Bosco and it was as wonderful as the first time. The food was delicious and the service was extremely attentive, but gave us time and space to talk and enjoy without rushing us. Definitely going again next time I am in Davidson.
