“Southern Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

This is an authentic Italian restaurant that has a diverse, interesting menu. Service is good and the general atmosphere is casual, yet sophisticated. One of the best Italian restaurants in the South, but quite difficult to find (hidden behind some industrial buildings).

“Great Italian in casual atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

Great Italian food in a casual atmosphere. Hard to find restaurant visite mostly by locals but fortunately we found it. The food was excellent and service was adequate while not overly friendly. I think it was just our waitress that seemed pretty quiet.

“One of the worst waiter experiences ever”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2011

While the food was reasonably good our service was the worst we've ever had in a restaurant. The waiter kept forgetting to bring things we had ordered, but was so rude when we reminded him that I refused to tip him anything. It was as if we were invisible. The food was expensive and for the price, was good but did not WOW us, but the wait experience will keep us away from there for quite some time.

“Great food, but service is lacking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2011

We love the food. The orreccetti (sp?) is the best pasta I have had anywhere in town. The sauce that is served with the calamari is amazing, too. The only problem with Boccaccia is the service is poor at times. Once we had a reservation, and at the same time we arrived, another group of 3 women showed up WITHOUT a reservation and begged their way into a table. They were served BEFORE US! They had drinks and turned in food orders before anyone even came to our table. We almost left but I wanted that pasta so bad that we decided to stay. We had to ask the hostess to please send someone to our table. After that, the service was better on that trip. Sadly that experience was better than the service on our first trip. I love the food so much that I will give it another try.
