Come join our family.
Open lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
Outstanding food and service, looking forward to our next visit...
The food was excellent, especially the homemade pasta, salads and many choices for main courses. The veal picata
was authentic and perfectly prepared and presented.
The wine list was limited but with good value choices.
The service was friendly and professional.
We were staying in a nearby hotel for a week. After our first excellent meal we returned a second time to sample additional menu selections. Both visits concluded with the choice of profiteroles for desert.
Highly recommended authentic delicious Italian cuisine.
Food and service were exceptional!! We plan on coming back very soon!
This is the best Italian restaurant that I have been to in the Charlotte area. Food was expensive but well worth the money spent. Looking forward to many future visits.
Our second time there and they didn't disappoint! Lobster and shrimp stuffed ravioli was excellent! Patrick was our waiter and he was on point.
Absolutely amazing experience! The service and the food were excellent.
The food was fantastic! They even found a wonderful dish for me because I don’t eat pasta. Our server was spot on and knowledgeable. It is a beautiful space and I thoroughly enjoyed it. For us this is a special occasion as it is a bit on the pricy side for our budget. But we will defiantly be back. The purple rain cocktail was our servers suggestion and it was outstanding. My fiancé tried the Tuaca brandy and now has to try to find where they sell it. Lol. Over all an outstanding experience.
Anniversary Dinner. Vincent was amazing and will be back.
The food was great, and our reservation was quickly set up.
Food was great and service was friendly and very attentive. Food arrived in a timely manner.
Both of us had the veal picatta. It was wonderful....best picatta sauce we've ever had! The Ceasar salad could have had a bit more dressing, but it was good. The bread and dipping sauce were both excellent.
EVERYTHING great except the noise level. They really need to do some sound attenuation on the ceiling of the main. dining room. Questioning if we will go back until there do something so we can enjoy our meal.
We love Oggi in Ballantyne. We shared the beef carpaccio, salad, and lobster ravioli's. Everything was to die for. Can't go wrong with anything on their menu!
Coffee and soup were cold. Our server did warm them up.
It was my second time this week and the food was amazing as always. It is not loud because of Covid it was extremely peaceful and a great experience.
Went out for Bday ... this is the 3rd time dining out since Covid ... I was concerned - But was Very Pleased how it played out !!! --- We sat on the covered porch / patio -- the only couple there (it was a Sunday) -- Very quiet / Excellent Service - Great Food !! All very reasonable .... considering the quality !!
I know they would like more diners - and I would like them to stay in business ... but for this meal / it was awesome.
I cannot say enough Good !
The food and the aroma of OGGI was pleasing. Our waitress hustled. However, the only thing about the restaurant that said Italian was the food and aroma. Definitely a lack of decor (other than a few abstract oils on the wall); nothing in the decor said Italy. No ambiance.
Great. Food yummy . Service great!
We love Oggi and now our grandkids do as well. It was their favorite restaurant during their 2 week visit and went twice! Amazing, delicious and consistent food!
Luis is the best!
Great restaurant and great staff.
We love Oggi! It’s our favorite Italian restaurant in Charlotte. The food is always delicious. We took our 15 and 17 year old grandkids and they loved it! Pam is a great server.
This was our first time having dinner at OGGI, and it was delicious. The Arancini melted in our mouths, and the tuna tartar was perfect. The gnocchi was savory and the crabmeat ravioli with lobster sauce was very rich. There was no room for an entree or dessert! There's indoor and outdoor seating so diners can spread out because of COVID-19. Our wait staff member, Pam, was great.
Not the best Oggi experience. Although our waiter was excellent, we felt rushed. The rib I special was excellent, The pasta and clams was average, not much flavor. Still had a nice time and will try again.
Food took forever in an empty restaurant. One of the appetizers never showed up. Lots of employees, service was sub par. Took 15 mins to get water and to give a drink order.
The food at Oggi is always fantastic! Slow service with cocktails. We do not have a great dining experience with service when not seated in the main dining room. I will ask for only main dining room seating in the future.
The appetizer (tuna tartare) was impeccable! Simply perfect!
The steak salad was disappointing, very tough meat cooked at "well" when I ordered medium. It was definitely hard to chew. not my favorite and I probably would never order that again. As far as the ambiance go, it is always a quiet and pleasant restaurant.Great for personal and business conversations. The Staff if very respectful and it's almost like they are not there! Excellent in that point. However, I give 2 stars this time, because during the entire lunch (a long one...1.5 hr), we have 2 flies hovering over our table and our dishes. It was so distracting and annoying. At one point the waitress came and tried to kill the flies, but it was just a mess and this was a very disappointing piece of our lunch. We could not focus on our conversation, as at all times one of us was trying to fan the flies out of the way. Wow, I was tired of those flies after lunch :) I would still return to Oggi, and definitely have the tuna tartare again! It has become my favorite appetizer there! but please get the flies out of there!!
Took my fiancee for her birthday. Everything was perfect from the service to ambience. It's our new favorite place.
Always a favorite. We haven't been there for quite some time due to Covid but went yesterday for lunch. Service was great. Tables were distanced and everyone wore a mask.
We had the Lobster Ravioli which is sensational. Ample amount of food which made for a lovely lunch break for us.
Great service and food as always! Observing social distancing practices.
We had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and the service was very good. We will be back!
Food was AMAZING.
Introducing Oggis to friends...we all loved it!
Our visit to OGGI was wonderful. The ingredients are fresh and thoughtfully prepared (and DELICIOUS!) - both the food and beverages! The staff is courteous and very observant to your needs (hostess, assigned server, and others passing by). Our most recent visit Patrick was our server and he was entertaining and attentive. We had a great time. Thanks, OGGI for being so GREAT!
1st time dining at OGGI Food Drinks & Service was very good
Server Seeta L was very attentive and helpful with suggestions and was very personable
Fantastic! Sue, our waitress was amazing. The food was to die for. All staff was friendly. 10/10 will be going back
The weekly specials are excellent! One of my favorite restaurants!
I always love the food here! I had veal picatta and my friend had penne vodka. Both were superb! The waitress recommended the profiteroles as a dessert to share and it was a great choice. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Food is always delicious. We always make it a point to stop at Oggi’s each year when visiting family.
Portion sizes have gotten smaller. I’d rather pay more for larger portions than to pay the same for a smaller portion. Especially the lava cake :)
Thank you for the delicious food. See you next year.
