    I never ate here before. when I made my reservation, I told them it was my husband's birthday. When they called and confirmed they said, it's for your husbands birthday, I said yes. We went for our dinner, they never even acknowledged his birthday. I was a little taken back by that. Usually they put a candle in the desert or something. They never even mentioned the word birthday. The waiter was extremely nice and really made everything great. He is why I would go back. The food was good but it was extremely noisy. Not what I expected. I was expecting a very romantic setting and a lot more quietness. I was a little disappointed.

    We eat here often and always love everything we order! I have taken many of Nunzio's cooking classes (which includes a trip to the Farmer's Market right in back of the restaurant) where he gets fresh produce from local farmers for class. I admire his dedication to only using the highest quality products in all of his wonderful recipes. Everything is delicious (no need for heavy sauces here). His staff is trained to provide exceptional service and most of them have been there for years. They make everyone feel like part of the family.

    I've liked Nunzio's for years, and perhaps that's my problem with them right now. Same menu, same specials, same really uncomfortable dining chairs all these years. Their servers are professional, but previous ones who served our table always made us feel special, or at least interested. When I made the reservation I stated we were celebrating a birthday. There was no acknowledgement by the hostess or server. Even when I eventually mentioned it to the server he just feigned a smile and gave a trite happy birthday. So it wasn't bad, and it wasn't great, it was just tired and ordinary.

Food is awful. tastesless. check out the other places for Italian food in Collingswood. Was highly recommended to Nunzios, will not be going back. Portions on main dishes tiny. I am surprised at the other reviews.

    We attended a concert in Collingwood recently and were looking for a place to have dinner nearby. I stumbled across Nunzios online and boy am I glad I did. Loved it. I'm second generation Italian American so I've had my share of authentic Italian food. (My maternal grandmother lived with us and had her own kitchen in the basement). The food was excellent and the service superb. The prices are very fair and it's a BYOB so you save money on the wine. All four members of our party agreed that we will go back to Nunzios next time we're in the Collingswood area.

    We attended the Winemakers Tuscan dinner- Needless to say Everything was perfect! Prosciutto and Arugula, eggplant lasagna and Veal Bracciole, Meatballs and sausage over light fullfy polenta. Hearty sauce w/o being bitter, sweet tender eggplant; The true test is delivering consistently top notch food on night such as this with a packed house. Home run again Nunzio.

    This was our second time at Nunzio's and once again it didn't disappoint. The food was fantastic. There wasn't an empty table in the place and even so the service was still pretty good. It was quite loud when we walked in, but we were sat in the back room so it wasn't as loud as being in the front. But it can be a loud place.

    Before I discuss the food, I would like to say the service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive but not too much so, and the presentation and timing was very good. Our food review is mixed. Our two appetizers of grilled octopus and grilled scallops were excellent! They had us salivating for the rest of the meal. However, we were disappointed with the two entrees. The lamb chops were fatty and I ended up eating only about half the meat due to the fat and gristle in the rest. Our pasta bolognese also was nothing special-just some okay fettucine noodles with a ladle-full of meat sauce on top. We could have gotten this at any strip center Italian restaurant. Still, I like this restaurant and would recommend it, but not to true foodies.

    I would have loved to have given this gem five stars, but unfortunately the service was rather disappointing. We were one of only three tables in the whole restaurant on a Tuesday night and we barely saw our server. The food though....AMAZING. Their specials were really great and we enjoyed ourselves.

    My husband and I recently went to Nunzio for our anniversary. The food was wonderful, I had the linguini pescatore and my husband had the meatballs with capellini. We also ended the meal with their signature chocolate souflee cake, highly recommend. But, by far, the best part of our meal was our server Ryan. He went out of his way to make our dining experience amazing. He is the only waiter to EVER tell me the prices of their daily specials. That in itself impressed me. But throughout our meal, he continued to make us feel very welcome and despite the crowded, noisy restaurant, made us feel as if we were his only table. Hands down, one of the best waiters I've ever had and will go back not only for food, but for the stellar service!

    We have been here numerous times in the past 2 years and have never been disappointed. Fresh whole fish (always available) is wonderful; veal chops or osso bucco great, rack of lamb terrific. Apps are often interesting surprises; lots of fresh and local veggies (read Jersey tomatoes). Desserts are also notable and delicious.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    There was a large group party of at least 50 people. However the guests were greeting each other and blocking the aisle. Our table happened to be next to thst aisle and the people were constantly bumping the aisle guests chair. We moved thst person closer to the table but he was uncomfortable. The server notified the manager who casually asked the party to take their seats but to no avail Our server was apologetic but the manager never acknowledged our inconvenience or ask if we wanted to move or complement an appetizer. Fortunately the quality of the food and the server was exceptional so our dinner was not ruined.
