I went there with my husband. It's located inside an italian centre, it is hard to see it and it feels a bit like a bunker when you are inside as the windows are covered not to see the parking lot. Despite being a Friday night, only another table was there. I asked the waiter about the wines but he... More

I had lunch at Boccaccio in a large group, and it was excellent. Both the food and service exceeded my expectations. I especially enjoyed the deep friend artichoke.

Have had lunch here numerous times and if you enjoy italian food with a bit of sicilian flair this place has never disappointed. Their daily specials are always tasty and the portions are good. Looking forward to trying this for dinner if we are ever in the area at dinner time.

Staff from my wife's school organized a retirement dinner for my wife. Staff were amazingly helpful and accommodating. The various courses were very well prepared even offering seconds. After the meal and speeches, we were not rushed out. I would definitely recommend this venue for any special occasion.

Haven't been here for 3 years and was pleasantly surprised be the new appearance. Beautiful in creamy white shades, comfortable seating, wall hung artwork reflecting the Italian arts. Started with an attractively presented aragula green salad, followed by a slightly al dente Gnocci in a subtly flavoured & rich tomato sauce. Topped this off with a smooth red merlot. Unfortunately... More

The food was excellent but the service left us feeling like our presence was an imposition. The maitre d' was busy helping potential clients organize an event and never lifted his head while we waited at the door. Another waiter escorted us to a table and abandoned us with a menu in hand. We only received service after another patron... More

The rest of the staff seemed more reasonable and friendly. When I asked if they served pizza, the maitre d seemed miffed and said that we could get pizza in the cafeteria and that he had just explained the nice special they had. We shared the artichoke dish which was good but the artichokes were canned not fresh. I had... More
