The trout with lemon caper sauce is soooo good. The pizza is great. We love the Palermo Pizza. Salads are really good too. Try the Strawberry basil dressing or house made Italian. And don't forget to order the risotto.

Every time I go to Waynesville I have to eat at Bocelli's. Located on the "frog level" of Waynesville downtown, it is a great Italian restaurant that is consistently good year after year. I have been going to this restaurant over 5 years and have never been disappointed. It is small restaurant that you have to look for, but it... More

Located in Waynesville which is a small town in Western North Carolina, Bocelli's delivers excellent authentic Italian food blended with great service. My dining partner had a chicken dish that was outstanding and I had the grouper which was as good as any I have ever had. Nice size portions but not intimidating if you know what I mean. Prices...

Have been several times and always enjoy it. They are great for big groups and families. House salad is delicious. Creamy dishes are super creamy, which can be good or bad depending on your preference.

Food is prepared fresh and try to buy locally. Try the knot rolls, the pizza dessert and the best fried mushrooms ever. Our family had mushroom ravioli, chicken marsala, the salmon, chicken Florentine Bocelli and freshly prepared manicotti. So many specials couldn't decide. They also have separate sports bar and great pizza. Owners are most gracious and we had great... More

A rainy, New Years Day evening, and we were looking for pizza. Arrived early evening - 530 - and were seated immediately. Nice casual establishment. Service was excellent, and the pizza came within a reasonable amount of time. The pizza was excellent- tasty, and good quantities on the toppings. We plan to return on our next trip to try some...

Birthday dinner for my son, so he chose Bocelli's. We are all glad he did. Not one complaint. Food was served hot, flavorful, from very competent, sweet staff. Now, we don't always order desert, but since it was a birthday dinner my wife decided to order desert pizza. OMG! SWEET blackberrys served pizza style. Didn't know anything this good existed....

Absolutely HORRIBLE service! We had reservations for 7:45, arrived at 7:35 and were seated immediately. We placed our order at 7:50, waited an hour and a half for food that tasted like chef boy r dee and was not served until multiple complaints were filed. We only saw our waitress twice and had to beg for refills on our drinks.... More
