The restaurant is nicely decorated and has a warm atmosphere. Pretty easy to get a table even on a Friday and Saturday night which is a huge bonus! As far as the food, the crab cakes are worth the visit alone (the best I have ever had), the chicken or eggplant parm are delicious as well.

We meet for lunch. The 3 of us each had a different dish. There was chicken Marsala, shrimp fra diavaolo, and ravioli. Each dish was perfect with dinner size portions with luncheon prices. We had the recommended wine , very good suggestion. The atmosphere is quiet . The menu was varied. The service was good and the 3 of us... More

I went on a Saturday with a big party and ordered the fall salad. It was huge all lettuce very little kale and hardly any chicken. The salad could have fed the whole party. I didn't complain. I did not want to in front of my boss. The next day I called the owner and told her my review of... More

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and brunch is the pinnacle of breakfast dining. We visited Bobby C's this past weekend with family. Hadn't been there in some time and didn't realize until now that they had brunch. We were greeted warmly by Julie and her staff, each of whom smiled and said hello as we walked by.... More

Bobby C's is a neighborhood Italian restaurant that has a warm friendly atmosphere. The service is attentive, the menu has a great selection of homemade Italian favorites and the wines are reasonably priced. It's kid friendly and caters for gluten intolerant customers. The portion sizes always leave me with leftovers which are delicious for lunch the next day.

I tried this place out for the first time this weekend. My friend and I were looking for a new place to try before going to the movies, and I was in the mood for a good meal and a martini beforehand. I looked for reviews on Bobby C's and saw a plethora of sparkling reviews, and a few not... More
