Super food and staff. Had the tortellini campagna and spaghetti and both were excellent. Definitely going back.

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!

Thank Jon S

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.

We stopped in for Sunday dinner and enjoyed a beautiful meal under the fall foliage. The patio is lovely and the service was excellent. I do believe that they offer some of the best lasagna that I have eaten.

We ate here this past Saturday night and was "greeted" by a short hair and young unsmiling hostess who only asked "TWO?!" She then grabbed a couple of menus turned and ran up the stairs to the upper level dining area. We guessed we were supposed to follow her and so we walked upstairs and then had to look for... More

I always look forward to visiting Waynesville and having the chance to dine at Bocelli's. Atmosphere is nice, all staff members are pleasant and food is very good. The menu is extensive and offers options from very simple dishes (and pizza) to some creative offerings. You MUST have the tomato-basil bisque - seriously - don't miss it. Prices are fair... More

Bocelli's is off of Main St so sometimes may go unnoticed but that's too bad because the food is delicious. The owner and her staff are very community oriented and friendly which makes a visit there even more special. Judging by the menu I'll bet the dinners are Judy as good as all the lunches I've had there. A sports... More

Our third night in Waynesville, after a long day of Apple Fest, left us needing a good Italian meal. We have dined here on other visits, so we knew it would be a good meal. Did the phone call ahead, was told the reservation list was closed, but we could be on the walk in list, and that was working... More

We have eaten at Bocellis on several different occasions. I have tried numerous entrees on the menu and nothing ever dissappoints. I have even tried different Italian restaurants in asheville and Maggie valley and nothing ever compares to their top notch food. Be patient . Give them time to prepare your food accordingly.
