The restaurant is VERY loud!! Food was very good but the marginal service and very high noise level ruined the experience. Too bad.

Wine bottles were pretty expensive; especially reds. I think you might want to consider wines in the $30-$40 range

Excellent Food & Service though....we'll be back!

We have been coming to Oggi occasionally over the years, and the quality of the food continues to impress. The physical facility has grown from basically a storefront to the present size with the enclosure of the outside dining area. The food remains outstanding and there is a wide variety available from more traditional offerings to "special" Italian dishes. The service is excellent from being greeted to the quality of the wait staff. As with most restaurants in the area, the noise level is high and there is a need for some form of buffers to control the noise. Be aware, the price is high, but well worth it.

First Visit, My wife and I had heard good things about the food so we gave it a try.
We had a reservation and we were seated very promptly, Our server Sue did a fantastic job, She was efficient and friendly.
Our appetizer Calamari/zucchini and it was good but a little over cooked. We split a Caesar salad and it was perfect.
She had mushroom ravioli and I had the Agnolotti both were very good, the ravioli was a fair portion but I felt the Agnolotti was a little stingy for the price.
Summary:
Nice place, a little loud but who cares if the food is good.

Staff- All were great, seated promptly, Sue was great and even the Manager was attentive.

Food- Salad and entree's were delicious, Appetizer a little too crisp and adding a few more ounces of food wouldn't hurt.

It's a do over for us.

The food and service were excellent. It was extremely loud and difficult to carry on a conversation. We were limited to only one selection of Chardonnay. The bread is amazing and our waiter was very kind in refilling it. Our favorite Italian restaurant !

The food is always fantastic! I'm not a big fan of the eggplant Parmesan but my wife orders it everytime. She did mention that on our last trip the eggplant was thinner than normal but still very good. Oggi is and always will be our go to restaurant in Charlotte. It's hard to have a bad experience when the food is exceptional and Ivan and the rest of the staff treat you like family.

Very nice Brunello. A delicious crab meat lasagna for me and lasagna OG for my husband. There is an enclosed patio area that sits about a dozen tables that is a little snug. We happen to be at a table for two and it felt like the table was slightly tilting downward . So a little discomfort there. But the food Made up for it. The heaters were more than sufficient for the cool weather outside. The bread with olive oil and vinegar were nice appetizers as we waited for the dinner which did not take long at all. Lovely.

Excellent service, Bianca was fantastic and very knowledgeable of the menu. Dining room is a bit cramped, but cozy. Apps, entree and dessert were spectacular. Drinks are pricey.

My reservation for four resulted in our being put into a cramped booth which left no room to relax, let alone put our purses anywhere but on our laps. The wine was expensive, and the food was adequate. We felt that our server, who seemed rushed and not especially friendly, kept trying to "push" extras such as appetizers, salads and desserts.

We go here often and enjoy the crabmeat ravioli, chicken parm and pasta with meat sauce. This past time we asked to be seated at booth since it was my birthday...thought it would be more intimate won't having waitstaff walking behind my seat. Was told the booth was to be used for party of 4...then a party of 1 was seated at the booth 10 minutes later. That was annoying to me. The service was ok. The food was delicious.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. The food is excellent, good wine selection and attentive service. The chef prepared a special request meal that was not on the menu with no hesitation. It was superb. I highly recommend this establishment.

I was recommended by a friend and I’m glad I listened. The food was nice and not tooo pricey. The ambience was a little loud but not to the point where you won’t enjoy your time. Not a great many amount of options on the menu but it’s a small restaurant so it met all expectations. However, the entrance is really odd. You must enter, and walk through this outside dinner patio to then get received by the host who didn’t reach out to me first. The booth I sat it seemed to suffer from a good century of wear and tear, as I couldn’t keep myself up without sliding downwards. Nevertheless, it was a good experience and I would definitely go back.

Really enjoyed our dinners and the service. Very crowded and we were seated at a table that was basically in the way of everyone walking by or near the bar. Would not go back unless we were seated at a booth. Would think they would have the sense to seat someone with a reservation at a better table.

Great service, always. We’ve been here twice and the food is always very good. We get wine, appetizers, entrees, and dessert and it’s not too expensive at all. The ambiance can seems bit noisy but it’s not a large place. We have not tried the outdoor area yet, but it looks nice. Definitely a great place in a great area
