Fantastic food and service for Winterlicious 2020. The lunch was excellent and well presented. Our waiter was beyond courteous.The restaurant is beautifully set up and perfect for a private event or romantic dinner. I cannot wait to come back and try the regular menu!

Absolutely delicious food and amazing service. Roberto, our server, was great. Wanted to try the food before we get married at the Columbus Centre later in the year and very happy to know it is very good.

Excellent service, excellent food and superb attention by wait staff...Vittorio especially. I have eaten at three different restaurants this week with family and friends and this evenings experience was the best by far.
Another great experience at one of our favourite Italian restaurants...Boccaccio!

Good food, service and ambience. 4 of us enjoyed the 3-course Summerlicious dinner, it was great value. The sirloin steak was tender and tasty, it was perfectly prepared for this cut. The asparagus and egg soup was so-so, the pork saltimboca was well seasoned but meat was tough.

Boccaccio will offer a Prix-fixe menu in September, we will return to try it.

Everything was exceptional however server was awkward. Needs to improve social skills.
At the end of our meal server was starting to clear oils salt and vinegar bottle.
I asked for room temperture water he instead isolated the ice water from the original ice jug water.....

The ambience is gracious, the service friendly and timely, and I was appreciative that the chef could accommodate my lactose intolerance with an adjustment to the Summerlicious pasta. It no longer featured cream, but was olive-oil-based and scrumptious. Touches like that make one fall in love with a restaurant.

Spinach fettuccini with scallops, clams, mussels, calamari - I have never seen such tiny scallops - very disappointing, quite tasteless - chocolate mousse was not mousse - made with Nutella which has no redeeming qualities and should not ever be used in a "Gourmet" restaurant. No Bruscetta - in an Italian restaurant??? Overall impression - Boccaccio is a fake - you are passing yourself off as a "Gourmet Restauraunt" - you are cheaping out by using poor quality food and producing sub-standard dishes. You can do better (you know you can!) The servers were attentive and eager to please.

My husband and I came for lunch during Summerlicious event. The moment we walked into the dining area it felt as if we were in Italy. We were immediately greeted and taken to a cozy table for two. Our server Roberto welcomed us and took our orders. The food we chose was delicious: asparagus soup, steamed mussels for appetizers. Delicate and tender pork loin with prosciutto and veggies, casarecce pasta with smoked chicken in very tasty pesto sauce. Desserts were luscious. Our waiter Roberto provided impeccable service and he is one of many other reasons that we will be back dining at Bocaccio soon. Highly recommend this reasonably priced restaurant.

We arrived and seated in a quiet area as asked. Server was great! Some of us order off the regular menu and some off summerlicious. I ordered off Summerlicous the steak and if was a bit tough. They addressed very well and took off the menu. The rest enjoyed their dinner. I would highly recommend and wish they would put back on the lamb chops. Great service and restaurant would recommend to try

Hi there, I was not impressed ...$200.00 later for 3 seniors was not expected...they put us in the middle of the floor with a wheel chair, there happen to be a birthday party and a communion and children were running around with no control from the parents or the staff...I expected the waiters to clean table cloth of crumbs from bread etc...nothing...they offered bottled water but we did not know we could have stopped to ask for tap water.....when the total came out to $177.00 I put in 2 100 dollar bills and they kept the whole thing???? he said thank you but never returned with the change ...he just assumed when he saw the 2 $100 dollar bills that the rest was for him....this is 3 seniors we are talking about??/

I SPECIFIED I WAS COMING OFR A SPECIAL OCCASION IT WAS TWO BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR SENIOR LADIES AND ALSO IT WAS A REMINICING TRIP FOR MY MOTHER...NOT EVEN A COMPLIMENTARY BISCOTTI??? COFFEE?? JOE COSENTINO KNEW HOW TO TREAT CUSTOMERS ...ALWAYS A COFFEE OR A SHOT OF LIQUOR
