Just tried Bocci's. Won't be going back. Large pizza was burnt and not that good. Risotto primavera was $14.00, they charged an extra $2.00 for whole wheat linguini. The vegetables were frozen packaged vegetables. Lots of lima beans, peas,

The service here has NEVER been a strong point (always slow and inconsistent) which is probably why over the years I have gone less and less.It hit an all-time low however, last weekend.A friend of mine had been craving Italian and with the gorgeous weather we planned a special trip to Bocci to sit outside and eat.We had been looking forward to it all week and planned the day around our dinner.It was a normal dinner time and they were not really busy.We walked in and were barely greeted by the 5 people at the front talking to each other and had to ask to be seated."oh just two of you?" was the response. Without another word or smile, the hostess picked up the menu and sat us.They sat us outside ( as we requested) where we sat for 10 minutes(!) without a greeting by one of the two waiters serving other tables outside.We wanted to order a drink and appetizer right away...but just sat with our menus and silverware.One server even walked by us, and both totally avoided eye contact,as well as our efforts to get their attention.They just did not want to wait on us.We were so mad that we got up and walked across the way to Nantucket Grill and had a great meal.We will not be returning to Bocci.

Great ambiance, great service & food that is as close to "real" Italian as you'll get in this area. Beautiful patio with a fountain reminiscent of an Italian piazza! I reccomend highly!

I live 25 mins from Bocci and I will drive there and back home with the wonderful brick oven pizza in hand. The drive is so worth it if you love a more "authentic" Italian style pizza. The sauce is amazing! Also, other dishes are very good

Pros: Best brick oven pizza I've had in NC

Cons: Seating inside is a bit tight

.

The food and service at Bocci were very good. The prices were reasonable too. I was a little disappointed with how crowded it felt, but I guess that is to be expected when there's delicious food!

Pros: the lighting...sadly, not much impressed me.

Cons: First time, won't be back. Ok service, Bad management

.

I thought that this was going to be a high priced pizza place, but I was wrong, you get quite alot of food for the price and the place in very fancy so you are excepting to pay alot. The service is good and fast.

After having their nona pizza, I refuse to order any other kind of pizza. Best pizza you will ever eat. Food is good as well, I've ordered food a few times, but mostly it's the pizza, but I'm sure all their other stuff is great. You

Pros: anything you can think about in a restaurant and the nona pizza

Cons: the parking is in a shopping center so it gets crowded sometimes.

I know good pizza since living in Philly, NY, and Chicago. This place was recommended to me being new to the area...so I figured why not, I am always looking for good Italian Restaurants. The blonde haired, stuck up waitress had a complete

Pros: Nice Menu, Casual Environment, Good Sauce

Cons: Snotty Service, Kinda Pricey for Pizza

The food here is really good. The resturant is not too big and has a nice atmosphere for a couple or a group of six or more. It's a nice place to go during the week for a relaxing meal with great service and reasonable prices. We drive

I go to Bocci quite often and everything I have had there was great. The pizza is especially good and the staff is extremely nice and knowledgeable about the food. I will continue to go to Bocci for the best Italian food and I have already

Pros: correct food @ fair price

Cons: wait can be long... but it's worth it

This place is good, but not amazing. I love the outdoor seating area and no wait both times I went. The thick-crust pizza is not too bad - the dough was burnt in places and undercooked in places. For the side house salad, I expected

Bocci is a great Italian restaurant that I would recomend to anyone looking for good food, great atmosphere, great service, and reasonable pricing. The pizza is outstanding and very homemade. My recomendation would be to try Nonni's Pizza

I was shocked that this gem was located right down the street from me. Pizza is awesome, service is great, and always a place to sit. Now that the weather has turned nice, the outdoor dining on the lawn is great. Highly recommended for

The service was good, but the food was only okay. I ordered a pasta dish that had seafood in it and while the sauce was good, the shrimp and scallops were definitely overcooked. Additionally, I was unhappy that I was paying $18 for this
