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

Nice selection of wines and food......kids loved their pizzas, and the grilled chicken with veggies was excellent. The wait staff was pretty good, not overly friendly, but we didn't really care.

Appreciation day for staff on a week well done. Ordered three pizzas.....Palermo, Butchers Best, and a plain Pepperoni. All were well prepared with great fresh ingredients and just as I always expect from the best pizza in Waynesville. The host was excellent and the experience always brings a smile to the office. Thanks again!

Ive eaten in and ordered to go a few times. Usually good food and good service when I eat in. Ordered a togo today and got the build your own pasta. It was delicious right up until I found a coarse black hair in it, looked like a pubic or beard hair. Kinda killed the whole meal for me.
