    The best Mediterranean food in south jersey. We tried the special farm to fork menu. The food was fresh, vibrant, and a very good quality. The Bronzino is not to be missed. If the squash blossoms stuffed with shrimp mousse is on the menu give them a try.

    Our first and last visit to Nunzio's was for their "Farm to Fork" special dinner. While the ingredients were fresh, the zucchini flowers were soft and not crisp, the Branzino fillet was small, and the peach tart appeared squashed and did not have the traditional shell. There was nothing that shouted "come back". While, the house-made bread was excellent, it was not enough to warrant a return visit.

    Wonderful Italian Restaurant in Collingswood and has a very vibrant ambience . We dined there on a Saturday night with a group of 16 and they gave us a nice table that enclosed in a smaller area and the waiter handled our large group like it was a table for four . They have a lot of great specials and everyone 3enjoyed the many fish , chicken and veal dishes . In short , good quality meal for a reasonable price with a real Italian Bistro type of atmosphere .

Everything was excellent. a table was prepared for our group in the front of the restaurant at the window providing a quiet environment. The service was outstanding and the food memorable.

    My wife and I visited Nunzios for the first time and we loved it. The ambiance is great and we enjoyed looking at everything during our evening. Our waiter was awesome. He was very attentive and knowledgeable and friendly. The food was wonderful . We started out with the scallop appetizer which was excellent. I had the veal parmesan and she had the special (fish) that evening. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

    My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Nunzios. Our reservations were for an early dinner, so the restaurant was very quiet. By the time we left however, the energy level was climbing. We started off with the steamed clams appetizer. The white wine garlic sauce was excellent, and the clams were well cooked and clean. I had the chicken with shrimp and asparagus, while my wife had the veal scaloppine sautéed with artichokes. Both were excellent, and highly recommended. Portions were perfect, although I could see someone saying they were on the small side. We left satisfied. For dessert, we shared the chocolate souffle cake. It was out of this world. I wish I had it to myself.

    We attended Nunzio's for the Farm to Table week event. The tuna carpaccio was delicious with the flaim baby greens dressed in truffle oil adding deightful freshness to the dish. The leek and potato soup with jumbo lump crabmeat was so silky and flavorful. We both had the herb crusted veal medallions which were so tender they nearly melted on the tongue. Paired with the shrimp and asparagus, the dish was simply amazing. The cherry tart dessert...simply scrumptious, a perfect ending! Service, as always, was flawless.

    We always enjoy an evening at Nunzio! This evening we enjoyed a wonderful Silician Estate Dinner. Every course was thoughtfully prepared. We don't eat lamb, and would have been delighted with just a little extra bucatini with Tuna. BUT! We were so thrilled - the Maitre d' asked for the kitchen to prepare some grilled Tuna for us. Chef Nunzio prepared a wonderful grilled Tuna accompanied by a balsalmic demi glace & a caponata. This was such a wonderful surprise & emblematic of the personal attention that we ALWAYS receive at Nunzio Ristorante!! We will be returning next week for the Field to Nunzio's Table!! We are so fortunate to live here-Nunzio is our favorite among the many great restaurants here in Collingswood.

    We ordered the specials, which didn't have the price next to them, but when the bill came it was a bit shocking how pricey it was. The steak my girlfriend ordered at medium rare was a bit over medium, waiter said they'll let the chef know. (not sure what that did for us). Anyways food was good, service was good, just a bit pricey for the quality. I'm not unhappy, but did not leave us satisfied to go back right away.

    Had wonderful dining experience at Nunzio Ristorante Rustico yesterday. Six of us enjoyed the atmosphere, the stellar service by our waiter Byron, and the excellent food. The fish was amazing. A bonus is that the restaurant is BYO. Two couples traveled over the bridge from PA, as we have before, and will do again. Recommend Nunzio highly.

    Had the opportunity to dine at Nunzio's the other night - I was glad to find that they were on a Monday night! Hard to really determine the atmosphere for a romantic dinner as I was there in the early evening, before it was dark outside - hence, it was a bit bright inside. Menu offerings were good and varied - the addition of several specials was very nice, and each a substantial departure for the other menu items; some place just feature regular menu its as specials; but not at Nunzio's. Overall, food was very good, portions size was just right and fairly priced. Service was polite, prompt and personal. I would recommend Nunzio's to anyone.
