Overall, very nice but one waiter had to service the entire restaurant, so, a bit understaffed but he did great considering. Good food, very good. Nice atmosphere. I felt sorry for waiter. Special anniversary dinner and asked for expresso at end but he said they don't have that, only regular coffee. Minor point, but, would be nice. So, we skipped... More

Greeted by the friendly staff, we were escorted to a table in this very crowded restaurant. We were a table of four adults and each had a different dish. Everything was delicious and we were able to take away our uneaten portions to enjoy at lunch the following day.

They have some of the best food in the area. They are slow for service but it's because the are personally hand making your pizza or pasta dish. Really good but not recommended if you are in a rush.

We found this by accident thinking it must be the one a friend mentioned. Charming atmosphere. Excellent service. Delicious meal. I wish they were located closer to me. I would definitely be a regular. Only confusion was outdoor sign says Pub 319 and we weren't sure we were at the right place until the small print said Bocelli's. We had... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Bocelli's. Since it was our first trip and we were from out of town, I wasn't sure what to expect. We really enjoyed the garlic knots, served with a tasty marinara. I was impressed that the menu included buffalo mozzarella, and enjoyed it on the pizza. My daughter enjoyed her pasta dish as well.... More

My son and I went to Bocelli's when we were recently in Waynesville for a weekend fishing trip. We were able to sit upstairs and watch the basketball game. He enjoyed a stromboli, and I had the manicotti. The wait staff was friendly and efficient even though there was a large party they were serving. The salad was great, and... More

Calzone and buffalo chicken salad. We enjoyed both. Prompt service, great atmosphere and wonderful owners. Oh yeah the food was fantastic. The salad is always flavorful and mixing the two dressings is a bounty of flavor with the buffalo chicken. The Calzon was fresh and fragrant with cheese abounding. Also enjoyed an order of garlic knots with the sauce as... More

Visited one afternoon around 5. Sat in the pub section. Waitress and bar tender were the same person. Took 10 minutes for her to see us and come over and we were expected to know what we wanted even though we had not been given menus. She had one speed....slow. Ordered drinks, waited, ordered local bar fare, waited, got decent... More

There are several options in the area for Italian food. It seems as though we have eaten at most of them fairly recently. Of course, things change from time to time. But, for now, my recommendations for Italian Food are Bocelli's, Frankie's in Maggie Valley and Angelo's. We went to Bocelli's on a week night and it was not crowded.... More
