Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We've been frequenting Bochellis for years now! WE have always enjoyed this restaurant, the food has been consistently good, and the people working there have always been lovely. I am reluctant to give a review that is other than really positive, I like to support...local businesses, and run a business myself, so fully understand the pressures therein. This evening highlighted the importance of you front of house people. We went to Bochellis at 17:40, with the intention of having a quick in and out. After making a big deal of the fact we didn't have a reservation, I got the impression that I was interrupting the Lady's evening. Like everyone else, I work hard for my money - I have no issue spending it - but I do like when people are pleasant to me when supplying a service. While we were waiting, the restaurant had less than 25% covers (approx guess) - We were waiting for 7 minutes, while a table was being prepared. At this stage I had insisted that we were leaving, and would go up the road to another restaurant - a poor start. Also while we were waiting, we noticed that the surface plank on the wall that we were leaning against, was distinctly sticky. Arriving at the table - that was sticky too. After the last couple of difficult years, cleanliness is so important. There is no excuse for this! - I will brook no argument here. In fairness the food was to the usual Bochellis standard, It was piping hot, and perfectly cooked! I was disappointed that the sauce was presented in takeaway level plastic containers, which gave a particularly low rent feel. These are the same containers that you dispense sauces into in the high street fast food chains./ When we were finished out starters, the lady came, stated "oh you're finished" and lifted the plates. Which led me to sarcastically commenting to my partner - "The starter was lovely - thanks for not asking"./ Main course was filetto al pepe for me (a favourite) and seabass for herself, both were excellent. The bill was fine for the standard of the food that we had - but not the experience. I understand that we are all facing inflation, and get why the prices have increased, but you really need to work on having a greeter who can smile and is pleasant. I normally don't post review that are other than 110% positive, and prefer to give any constructive feedback directly. I was not asked for my thoughts when we were leaving the restaurant, which, and hour later was less tha 50% full. Sadly Bochellis is now off our go-to list. Please feel free to look through my previous reviews - I have left many glowing reviews. But tonight sadly, I have to be honest. The food was great, but unfortunately Bochellis star has faded.More

Food was good, well cooked tasty pizzas but my goodness the pricing has gone through the roof for the drinks and the service was really slow and disjoint ( as a result I did not leave a " service charge tip" thats what its for...is it not ? White wine is 9 euro a glass and red 9.25 a glass . Couple pizzas, couple deserts and two drnks each 78.45 . in anyodys book thats not trivial for an ad hoc pizza drop in. Service needs to get bakc to where it used to be and if your not scared of the hgh prices then its a nice place to go for sure.More

Some of the best Italian food I’ve ever had. I had the meat lasagna and a Caesar salad. Service and cocktails great. Definitely recommend it.

Totally tasteless!! Food was cold and tasteless, little thought put into dishes. More flavour from a jar of Dolmio. We complained and were informed that the chef is new!! Is that an excuse??

My husband and I had dinner this evening at Bochelli's. I had spaghetti muscles and all I can say is that it was the nicest meal I have had out in so long. Thank you Chefs and staff.

Sunday lunch Planned a relaxing afternoon, so disappointed. Very long wait for order to be taken and even longer wait for food. When it arrived to say disappointing is an understatement. Stogy Arribiata, Tagliatelle with field mushrooms, panchetta but no chicken. Even worse the kitchen...is open to the restaurant but the extraction system is totally inadequate so the smell of stale food is everywhere.More

We went for a meal with the kids on the way back from Wexford. Sat at a table with mirrors behind us, the mirrors were filthy. They had been wiped, but obviously with a dirty cloth leaving dirty streeks all over them. This was along...with the service table the staff use in the middle of the floor which was really grubby and had lots of bits of food and dirt on it. This is where they get menus and cutlery etc. from. Not a great start. I had menu in my hand about 1 minute when I was asked was I ready to order, no! Then we asked multiple times in succession were we ready to order, please just give us time to read the menu thanks. I had the Caesar salad with chicken, it was ok, followed by the carbonara with the undercooked bacon bits. Would be much better to have black pepper & parmesan on the table rather than having to ask for it, I'm actually able to use a pepper grinder all by myself! When paying the bill the male server being pushy and quite rudely suggested I should leave a tip, It's rare I don't leave a tip but the manner in which he asked was met with an unequivocal no, in the same tone he asked for his tip. It was all just a bit lacklustre. Not sure I would return.More

We had a fantastic evening, there were 5 adults and 4 kids and everyone was very happy with the delicious food, great friendly service and atmosphere. Couldn't fault it. It was great to see Bochellis busy with family groups, couples etc on a Friday evening....Would highly recommend it. Great for vegetarians too.More
