From the entering trough the front door the experience starts. The host makes you feel right at home from the start. The wait staff explains the menu choices to you in a way that you can understand exactly how your dish will be prepared and served to you. No surprises. The attention to detail is also on display. The coffee and desert toped off the meal perfectly. A very nice dining experience.

I would give this 5* across the board, perhaps if we had a better table.
So glad Stefano is back. We will be back soon.

Everything was very nice good service good Italian food ... but the noise factor is much to much.
It can be a romantic restaurant but with the noise & kids running around it turns into a typical Staten Island restaurant.
This place has the potential to stand out but fails at it.

From the greeting at the front door to the good bye at the end of the dinner, this was a very pleasant experience!
The waiter staff is excellent, the food was cooked to perfection, the desert display was eye appealing and very tasty as well.
The head chef was very visible, visiting the dining area making sure the customers were having a good experience at the restaurant.

We went to celebrate my father’s birthday. We were all very happy with our meals, dessert and overall experience. The restaurant was prepared for our reservation, gave us personal attention for our celebration, and had a lovely atmosphere. It was our 2nd time there this month, as we were there the week before celebrating our anniversary. We plan to frequent this restaurant much in the future

Enjoyed our night out for our wedding anniversary. For an appetizer we shared the Arance salad and the calamari santa lucia. The Arance salad was delicious, the calamari was very good, but I didn't enjoy the filling as much as I thought would. Still good though. The entrees we had were parpadelle proseco and veal milanese. Both were very good. The star for us was the Limoncello Tiramisu at the end of our meal. Absolutely delicious and we're still raving about it days later.

My husband and I went with our 2 grown daughters for a dinner which was outstanding! The ambiance was so nice and quiet which we really appreciated and our server couldn't have been nicer which really means a lot to us. He was courteous and so friendly. It is a wonderful restaurant and we would definitely go there again.

As with our last review, the table we were given was right when you walked in. Not sure if table assignments using open table are the reason for getting less than desired placement. The food was good, waiter made one or two mistakes with our order, but overall, had a good time.

Food was excellent. Service was average but the noise level was so high that it was hard to even hear the waiter read the specials. Took away from the experience a little. Hard to carry on a conversation.

Visiting NY for the TD Five Boros Ride and wanted to try authentic Staten Island Italian cooking. Bocelli's came up well recommended online and did not disappoint. Fresh breads and cooked vegetable spread to start. Delicious stuffed full calamari appetizer. Veal Osso Bucco was braised nicely and not dry and my companion - a native Italian - had a nice seafood pasta which she testified as authentic. We shared a lemon tart off the desert tray for a satisfying finish to the evening. Only knock was that the waiter was a little chippy and didn't seem to be around when we were ready to order. But would return to see what other delicious things we can try on the menu. Buon Appetito!
