  • Amazing gluten-free menu!

    Before health issues forced me to go gluten-free I was quite the foodie. It's been awful trying to find the sort of culinary experiences I was used to on what passes for "gluten-free" menus these days. Nebo blows everyone out of the water. You wouldn't even know your meal is gluten-free if it weren't for the special menu. My husband, who does not eat gluten-free but has tried it from time to time, couldn't believe how delicious their dishes are. Highly recommend whether you have dietary restrictions or not! (Especially the gluten-free flatbreads. Taste just like the real deal...possibly even better!)

    I love the food at Nebo, but having experienced the very high level of noise on a busy Thursday night earlier this year, four friends and I opted to sit outside for lunch recently. Food was great, and service was impeccable. We shared several appetizers - marinated olives, perfectly cooked calamari, and the highlight, pistachio-dusted burrata - yum! While everyone else had the steak salad, I ordered the Salmon con Fagiole, which was excellent. A lovely way to enjoy one of the last warm days of summer, although the noise level can still distract, given the location on a busy downtown street - but great people watching.

    Our waiter was new on the job. He had no clue how to open a bottle of wine, nor to poor it. That is OK, everyone is new at some point of their career. But - we could not order the pasta al dente. The poor waiter explained that the kitchen had their procedures and this was not doable. We gasped. When the pasta finally came, the suspicion was right: This was pre made pasta, probably heated with hot water. Needless to say it was disgusting. When we explained the situation to the waiter, he told us that this was how it was supposed to be. "the owners are two Ladies from Italy, and they try to keep the food as close to their mothers cooking as possible". Sigh. They took the pasta off the tab and gave os limoncello. Thank You!

  • Liptisck on water glass
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Towards the end of my meal I noticed a faint lipstick mark on my water glass. I had ordered a soda water as well so this was why I did not notice the mark earlier in the meal. When our plates were cleared a told a Nebo employee who apologized and advised she would get the manager. The manager came over and apologized explaining "lipsitck is hard to get off". I really don't think this is an accepable explanation. Yes, it could be difficult to remove from the glass but this glass quite frankly could have never been washed. He asked to take my business card and offered the best table in the house for next time I dine at Nebo. I politely declined as I will not be returning. I shared this experience with my department at work.

    If you're looking for an upscale, pretty authentic Italian restaurant you should definitely go to Nebo. It has an excellent menu, the food was delicious and the service was great. We had a few appetizers and the burrata pizza and loved everything we got. Also, if you're looking for a fun and interesting cocktail list they've got that too. Enjoy!

    While I liked the look, it was very loud despite being only 65% full. My drink was too strong, almost entirely gin & I love gin so that's saying a lot. I sent it back & they doctored it up, but still not good-I left more than half of it and at $12 I was not happy it wasn't removed from my bill. Goat cheese panna cotta app was delicious & highlight of the meal. They were able to make a vegan pasta dish for my bf but he said it was too spicy & nothing he couldn't make at home - not worth $24. Had high hopes for the zucchini lasagna that won on Food Network, but it was unremarkable. A man at the next table even sent back his dish for being too bland. Seems like Nebo isn't what it used to be but could be a good place for wine/apps on the patio.

    We had a nice window table for two around 5:30pm on a Saturday. It wasn't busy at this time which we liked. Our server was not very friendly and he provided poor service; he only had three tables at the time. He spilled some of my wine when poured my glass. He give me the wrong entree and my husband food was just siting cold, waiting for my food to come. The food was good but for a place this expensive with many people working, I expect much better service. I couldn't even imagine what the service would be like when the restaurant was very busy. Maybe our experience was an outlier but it still wasn't pleasant.

    We made a reservation for 9:15 on a Saturday and got a table outside. We looked over the menu while we waited (and waited and waited) for our server. FINALLY (after 8 minutes of waiting) he came over and said "uhh do you guys want sparking water or tap?" ...... wait, what!?! He walked away my boyfriend and I just looked at each other, did that just happen? We agreed to give him another chance but upon his return he then said "sooo uhh do you want a glass of wine or something?" My boyfriend and I immediately made eye contact and thought "screw spending our money here". We told him we were fine with water and would need another minute to look over the menu. When he walked away we got up and left but not before informing the hostess.

Fresh bread and great quality meats and cheese. Very tasty. The other two had the veal dish and both enjoyed it. Overall, the four of us were very happy about the whole experience.

    We went to Nebo for a mid week dinner and watched as the very vibrant bar scene transitioned to a bustling full house in the restaurant section. The burrata starter was super creamy and served with some tasty proscuito and vegetable chutney. The vegetarian lasagne was remarkable light given the vast amount of sliced veggies and cheese it contained. The noise level was definitely up there but we found we could still have a pleasant conversation without shooting. I'd go back.

    Although Nebo has been open for a while, our first chance to get a reservation was early Saturday night. Since it wasn't crowded yet, the noise was minimal but I'm sure it will be louder when it is full. The food was terrific - homemade bread is absolutely addictive - and the service was excellent. The zucchini lasagna was so good we ordered one for take-out to bring home to our kids. I would recommend this restaurant highly!
