“Charming find in Newtown”

Boccaccio Restaurant
Ranked #7 of 84 Restaurants in Newtown

Reviewed 10 October 2017

Charming little Italian BYOB restaurant in downtown Newtown. We dined on a Friday evening and service was very friendly and not by any means rushed. Pasta is home made as are many of their other specialty dishes. Yes, they are very 'non-meat' friendly, as I am not a carnivore. We will return!

Friday night. Second time we were there with family. Not as good as first time. Atmosphere different - bright lights. Service rushed. Brought bill before we were finished. Cleared dishes before we were finished.

So foods, like black pasta dry and not done correctly.

Surprised by this. Owner was not there either - not sure who was supervising.

Some may call it light or fresh, we would say the food was on the bland side.

The marinara sauce (gravy) is the star of an Italian restaurant. This offering was lacking salt & sugar and was too oily; oil separated from the tomato base in the pasta bowl.

Appetizer and salad were also bland. Salad dressing was mostly oil and the peppers were marinated in oil.... too much oil.

Waitress was excellent and enthusiastic. Food was served quickly. Owner stopped by for a quick 'how are things'.... only answer to that type of inquiry is 'ok'.

Last night my husband and I once again had dinner at Boccaccio. We were greeted warmly as if we were old friends .
Our wine was opened ,we ordered , crusty bread with fragrant olive oil was brought to the table and our experience began . The Caesar salad was crisp and tasty and alongside it was offered additional dressing - a nice touch !
My veal piccata was presented beautifully with zucchini and marinara and diced white and yellow potatoes . My husband has quite an eclectic palate and the restaurant always accommodates him! His salmon was prepared to his liking .
I always take some of my dinner home to enjoy the following day and to leave room for the homemade tiramisu !
Another wonderful dining experience right in our own town ! Bravo Boccaccio

We decided last minute to go out for dinner...first choice was Boccaccio....however, so many other people have discovered this gem that we decided to purchase our meal and eat it at home. It was amazing. Homemade white lasagne...with home made pasta sheets, home made mozzarella, peas, mushrooms and parmesean with a bechamel sauce. Heavenly. the portion was enough to have tomorrow as well....Cant wait!
