Christmas Eve dinner with our grown children. We go out every year. We try to pick a different place each year, usually a high end steak house but the last 2 years were disappointing so I changed it up this year. They absolutely loved it. Food was delicious.

Initial service was slow, took about 30 minutes to place a drink order but then fine from that point forward. Food very good put pricey.

Great night celebrating our anniversary. We felt like we were "away" when we were just so close to home, it was a perfect evening. We will definitely be back.

We had a lovely evening. We asked for a table outside and Elizabeth, who is the most professional and sweet hostess, was able to accommodate us. We had an excellent server too. I believe his name is Louis. Our drinks were delicious. The food we ordered all came out just the way we asked for them to be prepared. And ever dish was hot, which is delectable, especially since we were dining outside. We look forward to visiting OGGI again. When we make reservations we’ll definitely want to speak with Elizabeth

OGGI's never let's you down!!! My husband and I both tried their Pasta e Fagioli for the first time, and it was so delicious that I was ready to order some to take home. Their Bruschetta in unbelievable, too!!! My husband had his old standby, lasagna (you find it this good anywhere) and I tried a new dish, shrimp & asparagus parmesan risotto, which was the most delicious dish I have ever tasted!!! The ambience and service are always perfect. You have to try OGGI's if you haven't already!!!

I was not pleased with the server. He simply didn’t pay much attention to us. Perhaps he was really busy in another part of the restaurant, because we rarely saw him!

Second time at Oggi and was going to get the same items as last time, Tuna Tartar and the crab meat ravioli with lobster sauce. Our waitress, WHO WAS AMAZING, talked me out of it for a special. I waited tables in college and she down sold me versus uphold me for a great experience. If they ever have the Trout special on the menu, ORDER IT. Our date night was changed as sitter cancelled and we brought our son. He was in a mood and Patricia put him at ease and made him laugh immediately. I'm from the NE and this is by far the best Italian in Charlotte.

Food and Service were both very good. Menu has a nice variety of options. Social distancing was very comfortable (we ate in the side area). Would definitely recommend this as an upscale Italian restaurant.

This was our second time visiting OGGI and we were just as impressed as we were on our last visit. The starters, salads, and entrees were all great. Their fresh-made pastas seem to be consistently delicious and their specials are interesting and worth trying. The feel of the restaurant leans a bit casual, but it is very cozy inside and the service is good. Definitely a place we will keep in our rotation for good Italian food.

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.

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.

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.
