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.
Best Italian restaurant in south Charlotte. Great food, service and atmosphere
Food is incredible! I really love OGGI. Probably best Caprese Salad around! My one wish is that it wasn’t so loud in the restaurant - I like to hear and talk a little more easily <3
Date night with husband. Food was great, probably the best Tiramisu I have ever had. Make a reservation as it is very busy on the weekends with limited bar seating.
Patio seating was warmer than inside. Bathroom needs help. Waiter took to long to get to the table then speed through everything like he was in a hurry. But then the problems stopped, the food was AMAZING!!!
We have enjoyed Oggi's since it opened in Ballandyne. We love the food and especially the yummy bread and salads. Our waiter, Trystin, was especially good. We enjoyed having him work with us. We have taken family & friends there many times, and will continue to do so.
I had a great quiet birthday
The service was excellent, knowledgeable and professional staff. Their chef or chefs
are the best. Noise level, well with all the people it was to be expected - a little noisy.
Good food, pretty good service. Excellent calamari.
The food was delicious and the service was incredible. I would recommend trying this restaurant out!
My wife and I started going to OGGI a few months ago. It is a great place to go for dinner. The staff is very friendly. The main courses are great and you can't go wrong with the desert selection.
One of my favorite restaurants! The food is always delicious. The ahi tuna appetizer was especially good. The side pasta with the roasted garlic and oil is a favorite.
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
Valentines Day Prix Fixe was great...although a little pricey.
Decent food , service was good considering valentines night is usually a cattle market in most restaurants 9/10
I was very disappointed that the restaurant did not advertise that Valentines Day would be a Prix Fix menu. The main course offering included steak, fish and the only pasta was a seafood dish in which I have an allergy. I have dined at Oggi many times and have recommended to friends.
I brought my mom & daughter expecting to order from their standard dining menu. The Prix Fix menu did not have the price per person printed anywhere nor was that shared by the server. Dinner with a moderate priced bottle of wine as the first bottle I selected was not available was over a $100 per person. This was not what I was expecting for dinner with my teenage daughter and mother.
Oggi is a great place for a nice meal with friends. The service was very good, and the waitress attentive. The calamari and zucchini appetizer was delicious. I ordered the handmade pappardelle, which was delicious! My husband ordered the Fettuccine Carbonara, and ate the entire plate! He appreciated that it was not overly heavy, and yet had a wonderful flavor. The dolce de leche gelato was a perfect ending for a great meal. Though it became very loud once the restaurant was full, we were able to hear each other if we spoke up or moved closer to each other. OGGI is a wonderful choice for a memorable meal!
We enjoyed our experience overall! We made a reservation yet it still took us nearly 30 minutes to be seated. Outside of that, our experience was quite pleasant.
Our reservation was for 8:00 pm so I was surprised when we got there and there were about 5 parties ahead of us. We were seated at 8:25 pm. It is very noisy here which is one thing I don't like but the food is fantastic so I can overlook the noise and the wait. Always love to go here but just need to go during the week as they seem to overbook.
Food was excellent. Service was very good. Place is over packed with tables making it very tight to move around and noisy. Tables are so close together that you hear everyone's conversation.
Very impressed. We will be back.
Food was excellent. Most enjoyable evening! Great atmosphere!
Excellent food and service was top notch.
It was our 9th anniversary and our waiter as has been the past two times we went was amazing!
Had a great time, met friends we hadn’t seen in awhile. We enjoyed the atmosphere, and did not feel rushed at all. Our food was really good, except my pasta was a little bland. Everyone else’s was on point. Also, enjoyed some fun cocktails from the bar. Service was exceptional! Will definitely be back soon.
Great food. Bread was excellent. Wine plus dinner were great. I would go back. Hard location to find if you are out of town.
I’m not sure that I can identify one or two things in particular that affected my 3-Star rating. It was a series of small things that were hard to overlook. I asked for black coffee and Pam delivered an Americano. ($4.00@) My Caprese sandwich, $14, contained little of value, bland, bland, bland! The tomato was awful and their choice for buffalo mozzarella needs review. Additionally, my shoestring fries were cold,ugh. I switched to Diet Coke and was brought Coke’s small bottle.($2.34@) My bride enjoyed her Eggplant entree. My Pasta e fagioli was great. I’m hoping a return visit for dinner brings me better luck than lunch...
The food was exceptional. My wife had the Ravioli special and I had the Pasta Carbonara. Both dishes had fresh, homemade pasta, and a nice delicate sauce. We each cleaned our plates. Our waiter got lost a few times. The one issue a had with the service, was the bus boy brought out our pasta dishes. We asked him for fresh parmigana cheese, crushed red pepper, and black pepper. He just walked away. It was about 5 minutes before our waiter came to check on us, and we had to request the cheese and pepper again, while our plates just sat there. This would have been an overall 5 star review, with more attentive service.
Great food and great service. Portions aren't over the top like some Italian restaurants which only means we usually eat all of our food!
We love Oggi. It is a favorite of ours for date night. The food is authentic and executed perfectly. Their staff is well trained and attentive, often pairing wine for me with whatever I am eating. We love the Zuppe di pesce or frutti de mare. The atmosphere is dark, giving a more intimate vibe.
Waiter was excellent...guided w menu options and wine
Brought a friend here for a their birthday and he was very impressed. I've been here several times and thoroughly enjoy the food. Our server was excellent and food was delicious. Will definitely be coming back.
Continues to be one of our favorites -- not just for Italian cuisine but just for dinner in general! It is always superb!! j
Food was great, service too!
