Italian
Oggi Italian is a small and authentic Italian restaurant. We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional dining experience for our customers which can often mean longer than normal wait times to receive our amazing food. If you are looking for a faster service option, we may not be your best choice, however, please let your server know and we will be happy to provide an estimated timeframe.

As an Italian custom, OGGI guests are treated like family. Guests are greeted with a complimentary Antipasto, and an OGGI House salad with every meal. We finish with a complimentary Espresso.

We are open for in-house dining and also have plenty of outdoor seating.

We strongly encourage making reservations directly through the restaurant.

Small, unassuming yet charming place right in the heart of Davis Island. Friendly, energetic service. We sat outside in the “alley”, so noise was minimal and atmosphere charming and, well, Italian. Large menu with plenty of selections. There were probably a dozen things I’d like to try and will give a shot when we return. This evening I enjoyed the Diavolo Penne. Homemade sausage and a bit of a spicy kick. My wife and daughter had the Pollo Margherita and Al Forno Sausage Rigatoni and both were excellent. Portions are generous and include a house salad. Overall exceptional. We will be back.

I wouldn’t eat here again. Food had no flavor, no seasoning. One of the staff members was very rude. Girl behind the bar very nice but one lady ruined it for me. No air conditioning either.

The food was excellent. We had a group of 14 and everyone liked what they got. The kitchen did a good job getting all the meals out together. The main downside was the service throughout the night was very slow.

Sangria was the worst I have ever tasted. Bitter. House wine horrible and hot.

Lasagna was great. Others said their food was OK but wouldn’t come back.

Have been trying to go to this restaurant forever. Probably won’t repeat ! So many more to try in town !

The food was average …marinara sauce not my favorite and service was not the best. For example the server never asked how we would like to split the check and just printed it out. When we asked her to split it she acted like it was such an inconvenience and told she didn’t know how long it would take to get it done. We also asked another server as they we walking by if they would mind taking a picture of us and she said she could not and kept walking…rude in my opinion!

Seems like our order wasn’t placed correctly so others arriving much later than our party were served well before us. Our salads were missed and when we got the bill there were additional items included that were never ordered. We had to the charges reversed to fix the check. Our drinks were comped on the new bill but the errors ruined our dinner that evening. Otherwise, the food was good.

I am not a “big” reviewer but sometimes feel the need to write a good or improvement review. Came in for Father’s Day weekend and decided to try Oggi as I was told it was good Italian. I have eaten Italian at many locations in different states as well as Italy and Italian is my food preference. I put this particular restaurant at or near the bottom, all the food (meatball, rigatoni and chicken parm) was very bland with the exception of the octopus. Nice location makes it feel like you are in a piazza and the bar area was quaint/cozy.

I usually love OGGI, but the service was terrible last night. Our server was impatient, rude, and shook his head at us multiple times for no reason. A complete disappointment.

Went for my parents birthday - super accommodating to dietary restrictions and such a great relaxed environment. I had the pistachio crusted chicken which was amazing.

the only issue was the over-abundance of house flies outside, but you can't do anything about that

Walked into Oggi Italian about 8 mins before our reservation. Stood at the hostess stand waiting for someone to check us in for about five mins. The phone rang and the lady behind the bar when we entered (bartender?) walked through our party to answer it. No exchange of words occurred. An "excuse me", or "someone will be right with you", or "get out of my way", would have been more courteous. A waitress stepped in and communicated with the bartender to check us in using the tablet reservation system. We were sat, and were informed the bottomless Italian Sangria (that drew us to the restaurant and could not be found on the menu) was not available. Service was slow, eggs were cold, portions small, and had to track down someone to pay our check. Not sure if we walked away anyone would have noticed. Not sure if this restaurant is managed by anyone. Maybe we just caught them on a bad day?
