OGGI - Ballantyne Ratings and Reviews
The best Italian experience in South Charlotte, Oggi’s rarely disappoints on any level. Highly recommended choice for a romantic evening or special occasion. My girlfriend and I began with the bruschetta special which featured a thin slice of filet and topped with arugula. A different take but we very much enjoyed.
My girlfriend tried a seafood dish that wasn’t what she hoped for. We kindly explained this to our waiter who brought the manager over quickly to talk to us. The manager didn’t hesitate to replace her entree with her second choice, salmon. Top notch, professional customer service!
My Joyce chicken dish was cooked exactly right using a bone-in cut for added flavor. Most pastas are home made, as was my linguini with a simple garlic and olive oil sauce. Cooked to al dente perfection.
It’s the small things that make for a memorable dining experience and create loyal customers. Oggi’s delivers in that way every time. Keep it up!
Our dining experience was exceptional ! From the moment you enter the front door , you are greeted with a warm welcome . Our waitress was very attentive and patient with our questions regarding the menu and answered them kindly .
We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizer , entrees and dessert . The entire evening was outstanding !
We had an amazing experience at this restaurant! The staff was friendly and attentive. The bartender is very good and crafts some of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. For dinner we shared the calamari which was delicious. I ordered the crab ravioli which was out of this world! I have never had such light ravioli and the filling was amazing. My boyfriend had the skirt steak which was cooked perfectly and the risotto was truly Italian. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for some updated/modern authentic Italian food.
Although my wife and I have been to Oggi many times, our last visit was disappointing. While we found the quality of our meal above average, we felt that Oggi's prices on this visit was exceedingly high. My wife and I each had a salad( $11 each ) which were good but not exceptional. For entrees, my wife ordered the Veal Chop ( $45 ) and I ordered the Lobster Fra Diavolo ($35 ). Each were specials that night. Although we felt both dishes were fine, we definitely feel both were overpriced. The listing of specials did not show the prices, nor did our server when describing each. We know that specials are usually priced higher than items on their regular menu, but by comparison, these prices were much higher.
We visit many upscale restaurants in Charlotte and have had Lobster Fra Diavolo and Veal Chops at some of those restaurants and never were charged those prices. Two of the very best restaurants in Charlotte are Luce and Stagioni. Both offer the same or similar dishes at a much lower price. And their food, ambiance and noise level is much superior to Oggi.
I regret having to write this review, but my wife and I feel Oggi do a disservice to their loyal customers when charging prices that are exorbitant.
Loved it, but I would recommend getting rid of all the flatscreen TVs. If you’re wanting to sell really good food would you do in an atmosphere where foodies want to eat then you need to get rid of the TVs. Plus I think people need to learn to eat together and talk together without screens around.
We had a date night planned and was fortunate that we got a reservation on the day we decided to go to OGGI.. and my girlfriend and I were both very impressed with the service and professionalism. But what had us ecstatic was the FOOD.. it was beyond DELICIOUS and we can't wait to go again!
We recently went to Oggi for an impromptu dinner. We had not been there for a while. The food was always good but noise level was unbearable. This time we arrived around 7:15 and while it was busy -- not packed -- the noise level was much better. Their menu had changed since last visit and we liked the new menu. I had the agnolotti (sp?) , sauteed spinach and simple mixed salad. My husband had the chicken parmigiana. Both meals were great and were nice changes to the menu. We will definitely return in near future but try to avoid super busy nights at prime time.
Oggi is one our favorite restaurants.
The food tonight was good not great. Loved the Salmon. Other entrees were just ok for my wife and brother in law. Because it was the day before Thanksgiving, very busy and food quality was a little off.
Expectations which are high were not met tonight.
Very authentic Italian cuisine. We were seated on the heated patio, very private. Wonderful for our small group. The appetizers were fabulous and the meals delicious. Our waiter was excellent and the rest of the staff was friendly and accommodating. Definitely a great restaurant find! Will return again.
Couldn’t have been happier! My husband had the veal chop special which he thought was the best meal he has ever had. I️ had pasta and shrimp. The fresh pasta was delish! Our server I️ think was named Denile was amazing. The service was impeccable. Had a great night. Thank you!
This is the third time in the last thirty days I made reservations on open table only to arrive and find out the hostess NEVER checked the reservation and did not reserve the requested booth. They NEVER check!!! My husband ordered decaf coffee and they served him INSTANT espresso. Then they tell him they no longer have coffee. Unheard of. They seem to be trying to go out of business. Someone needs to turn this restaurant around. Also put the chopped salad back on the menu. Something great has gone terribly wrong.
Good night out with friends. The veal chop special was excellent (and yes pricey). The homemade pasta was delicious, but the veal picata was a bit over cooked.
Our table (booth) was in the bar area and very, very noisy. Service was good...and the bartender great. He even came out to see how we liked the manhattan he made. We did.
Will be back, but will ask for a table away from the bar.
I think is a nice place, unfortunately we couldn't really enjoy it because they gave us a table that was hide in a corner in between the kitchen and restrooms. I'll try again to eat something different on the menu and hopefully get a better table then I'll decide which list to add on , the favorites or the last options.
