The food is good, but has gotten very expensive and the noise level was ridiculous last weekend. Crowded with people and no one asked for vaccine card. This is a month after the vaccine mandate went into effect, but this is the only red boro...in NYC, so to be expected. Suffice to say I won't be eating here any time soon.More

We have been here a few times. It tends to be a hit or miss. Never really consistent. They ran out of the wine we were drinking. Pear salad on the menu, but no pears. Rest of the food and service was ok...not great.

Went out on cold rainy, snowy afternoon for my wife’s birthday. We were warmly greeted and quickly seated. We chose the pre fix menu and had appetizers, main course and dessert with coffee. We both had chicken parmigiana which could have melted in your mouth....The spaghetti was done perfectly and the sauce was excellent. The sangria was very enjoyable. The service was spot on and they even made a big deal,of singing happy birthday to my wife. Will definitely be back. One of the nicer restaurants on Staten Island.More

The food and service was excellent. Without question, I would host another party there any time without hesitation.

Bocelli's did a great job hosting my daughters wedding shower for our family and friends. The staff was attentive to everyones needs. They helped us with the setup and choices. The food was spot on with good flavors and the portions was filling. The sangria...(red and white) were delicious. The atmosphere was beautiful. I would definitely recommend Bocellis for any function that you may have.More

We attended a friend's party last night and weren't overwhelmed. The food was good but not excellent like it used to be. The baked clams were disappointing and the pasta bland. The steak was ok. It was sad to see a formerly great place slide...down.More

We dined here on Saturday, June 16th. This restaurant advertises that Saturday's special is Osso Bucco. We were extremely disappointed to find that they had none on this particular day. The manager was very apologetic, said it never happened before and would not happen again....We told him that was the primary reason for coming this evening. He asked us to please return again on a Saturday. So, I made a reservation for this evening (Saturday) hoping to get the Osso Bucco. This afternoon, I called the restaurant to verify that they had that dish available this evening. Nope! I'm done; there are other great places to eat on Staten Island. Note: don't advertise that you have this dish EVERY Saturday because you don't!More

We've eaten at Bocelli's numerous times, and have never gotten a "bad" meal. Tonight's Monte Bianco salad was an exception, though. It seems that there might have been a heavy-hand at work in the kitchen as the dressing was over-salted and over-citrissed. I sent almost...the whole salad back uneaten. Other than this misstep, most of the rest of the meal was good. The Ravioli Bolognese was wonderful, although my partner's Caesar salad also was a misstep, with brown-edged Romaine. His Orecchiette Baresi alla Nonna was a large portion and typically good for this venue. The main problem with this visit, other than the huge amount of ambient noise from a two-story dining room with no soft surfaces to absorb sound, and decorating that ruins even the finest gastronomic experience, was waiting nearly 30 minutes for our entrees. We're willing to give a pass, since they did have two parties filling most of the dining room and were obviously overwhelmed. Please see the attached photo which clearly shows the taste level in their decorating scheme, "The vase that ate Venice." Pricing here is five star ridiculous, while the food, service and surroundings are strictly 3.5 stars.More

Yes, self parking and valet if you prefer. The lot isn't that big and can get crowded.
