"I can't praise enough the friendliness and the accomodating nature of the owner Silvio and our server that night Michael. Both are tremendous people who make me feel like I was dining in my grandmothers kitchen with my family.
Never had a meal I didn't love yet."

"The entire staff makes you feel at home, and the food is amazing. A truly satisfying experience. This is the second time my boyfriend and I have dined here and Boccone South has quickly become our favorite restaurant! Our server was Michael (this time and last time). He's funny, knowledgeable, very attentive, and has a truly memorable spirit. Even during their dinner rush we felt like we were their only customers. Can't wait to go back!
Only regret, I didn't have room for more! Goal: to try everything on the menu!"

"Can't say enough about this place! Went before a concert at SOPAC. Had ample time for delicious octopus appetizer plus tuna and trout entrées. At the end of the meal we were given a complementary dessert of warm bread pudding with vanilla gelato. Unbelievable! I will definitely be back. Only suggestion would be to iron out confusion about the name on website and restaurant signage!"

"We just returned from a Maui winter trip, and when recently visiting Boccone, our regular and most favorite south orange dining spot, we were greatly surprised to hear Monchong to be among the daily specials. This is a lovely fish from Hawaii, and when we inquired of Silvio, the gracious owner, he explained that he routinely gets fresh shipments from the Honolulu fish company of local Hawaiian species of fish. This is a wonderful addition to the already impressive menu offered at Boccone. The monchong dish was delicious, and we look forward to more Hawaiian seafood offerings at Boccone. Check it out!"

"Must do in South Orange. If you love outstanding food combined with great level of attention, you should go to Boccone. What is amazing, beyond the amazing quality of the fish, is what is below it, behind the Risotto, or the vegetables cooked with creativity and care. I heard that people from NY take the train - less that 30 minutes from Penn - just to have dinner here!!!"

"A BYOB Italian Restaurant that is super! Mushroom Pappardelle was outstanding. My husband and I shared 1/2 order as an app. I had fish - he had beef - we shared bread pudding. It was an excellent dinner and we will return often.
Server was superior and owner was charming. Great choice!"

"We had a wonderful dining experience at this great restaurant. Sylvio greeted us and our server, Judy was so nice. Our food was amazing and I would recommend this restaurant to all. Great place to go before a SOPAC performance. All eight of us enjoyed the entire dinner and desset. Nice BYOB and really good desserts too."

"Your experience starts when Silvio greets you like a member of his family. Food is excellent. I had parppadelle funghi after starting with goat cheese salad. My friends enjoyed the fish of the day and a steak entree. The bread pudding was quite tasty and I don't even eat bread pudding! We will be back!"

"We used OpenTable to make a reservation for a party of 10 on a Saturday night. It was not a problem to add one more person to our party. The food was excellent, from the antipasto all the way to dessert. I'm sure our group was loud and jovial but the wait staff including the owner couldn't have been nicer! They even brought out a birthday dessert for a member of the party. Definitely would eat here again!"

"Being coming to Boccone's since we moved to South Orange. Its has been a great find. The staff is attentive and the food is great. The standard menu is great and there is always specials which outshine the great items on the menu. Boccone is a keeper."

"What was a simple dinner with friends on a Wednesday evening turned into a simply memorable meal. This location has housed 2 former Italian restaurants, but Boccone has taken it to a wonderful level. From the appetizers to main course, deserts to coffee, the food did not miss. Service was the perfect blend of friendly and professional and I always love it when the owner stops at the table for conversation. This is a great hidden find in the Village, BYOB and we'll be back!"
