There were 11 of us at dinner. The service was great. We all ordered something different and it was all delicious. I had the lasagna. The potions are big. I would recommend two people split one order.

We were there for 2 hours for lunch. Not good. We ordered the pane veal. The veal was hard like shoe leather. Took one bite and it scratched my throat.

All italian food. Great selection for lunch and dinner. I love the escargot with pesto as an appetizer. I love the eggplant parmesan and it comes with a pasta and salad for lunch.

One of the best Italian restaurants in Mandeville. Not a chain restaurant. Great service and drinks.

We are regulars and our latest visit was the best yet. We had artichoke appetizers and the entrees were the best

Have been to Bosco's a couple of times and enjoy the food, but was really just wanting some pizza and didn't feel like driving to the other side of Covington to go for my favorite pizza. Remembering that Bosco's also had pizza, my wife and I decided to try them. Their pizza counter is connected to the restaurant and I... More

Good wine selection; delicious appetizers of eggplant parmagiana and crab au gratin; legit caesar salad - no creamy dressing - the real one; eggplant and veal entree was just scrumptious and the redfish with a light cream sauce covered in lump crab meat was just the star of the meal. It will now be one of the "go to" restaurants... More

Late as in got there around 3:00 just in time to get the last crab meat au gratin and glad we did. Big chunks of crab, very good. I had the redfish Giovanni and my wife had the Italian sausage and peppers. Both of us had a house salad with blue cheese dressing which I think was made in house.... More

So it was a bummer in a sleepy town like Mandeville, LA to have to wait 25 minutes for dinner, even on a Saturday night but the meal was fantastic. Michael our server was incredibly detailed and knowledgeable as well as friendly. Tortellini appetizer was outstanding as was the crabmeat au gratin appetizer. Shrimp and pasta entree very good but... More

Great food and menu options. Absolutely everything is fantastic. Also, very reasonable. Prefer eating in the bar. Also, nice for take-out. Great cocktails. The food preparation is always consistent and tasty. Our favorite neighborhood-type dining spot, even though not close to our neighborhood. Worth the drive!
