I expected so much more of Boccardi's than what I got. I truly hope this is not what true Italian is to taste like. I left feeling that Olive Garden was better, sad to say, and that I would not be back nor will I recommend this restaurant to anyone. Our sodas were nothing more than sugary water, absolutely no...

My wife, son and I had a wonderful evening at Boccardi's. As always, the food was excellent as was the service. We are long time patrons and always enjoy dinner there, especially when we get to visit with the owner, Maria.

We have been a couple of times to this restaurant mainly on the weekends and in the summer to be able to sit outside which is usually very nice. This place has all the items on the menu available frozen to take home which is a plus. We have had a couple of their pizzas which are average, but their... More

This is a laid back restaurant that serves great food. The service was a little slow if we were in a hurry. If you are looking for a good afordable place to get a bottle of wine and eat some italian this is a great option. Would have been a 5 but it is very slow. If you are in... More

Dined here a couple of times and had very, very good food on both occasions. My only negative is that the food was served a bit less hot than it should've been. Appetizers, drinks, salads, entrees have all been delicious. Service was beyond exceptional and the decor is just right for a pleasant dining experience.

Boccardi's Italian Imports is located on the southwest side of Springfield. Their motto is "a taste of The Hill in Springfield". Our service was great always checking on our drinks. The bread was good. However, the pasta and salad were ok. The marinara sauce was runny. The homemade ranch dressing did not taste like ranch you are used to eating.... More

Ate dinner here for something different. We could not have been more disappointed. First off, design. It's as if the place was designed by someone who's never been to a restaurant. Awkward tables with too much space between them so you feel out on display. Odd table quality, like something you'd buy at Big Lots or maybe Pier One- wobbly... More

Among the three of us, we had soup, spaghetti, salad and roast beef sandwich and it was all excellent. There is a small Italian grocery also. Decorated very nicely.
