    We have eaten at Nunzio several times. The food is always perfect. The service is outstanding, very attentive without being bothersome. The wait staff all have a knowledge of the menu and never have a problem with adjusting an order. I always look forward to returning to Nunzio for dinner.

    There were four of us for dinner, each with unique food preferences and we were all very pleased. Pasta, fish, filet, rabbit, chicken dishes were all superb! Dessert and espresso were excellent, as well. My only complaint would be that the tables were very close together. Overall, a very positive dining experience.

  • Best Biscotti ever!
    Philly86VIP
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    Brought some new friends to Nunzios. Of course they loved everything! For starters we had the corn chowder soup, scallops and Caesar salad. The Caesar salad could have used a little umph. It was boring and at Nunzios we don't expect boring. The soup and scallops were both excellent. On to the main courses. The veal chop special and the Branzino were terrific! We were full, but indulged in an order of homemade biscotti. The biscotti was served with a little bit of honey drizzled on top and some walnuts for those that like them. Nunzios biscotti is the best ever! No matter if you are ordering other dessert or not, suggest you request a small order of biscotti. You won't be disappointed. Then lemon-cello to compliment the night.

    From the minute we walked in the door and the hostess greeted us by name, to the special request I had for a table, to the knowledgeable waiter, outstanding appetizers (tuna carpaccio & scallops with mango), to the veal (the house specialty) and my dover sole, the meal was wonderful. This is an excellent find!

    Nunzio's was a wonderful experience from the moment we were met at the door, immediately seated, met our friendly server. The entire evening was a pleasure. We began with the antipasto as a shared appetizer (more than enough for 2). The bronzino special was amazing with both shrimp and crab meat as a topper and my better half declared the veal marsala among the best he's ever eaten. We topped it off with scrumptious desserts and coffee. A truly lovely experience. The only problem we had was our forgetting to bring the wine. Totally not the fault of the restaurant. We'll be sure to bring it next time. We're already ooking forward to that.

    Chef-Owner Nunzio still has a magic touch in the kitchen and in creating a memorable dining experience. Waitstaff are superbly trained to deliver professional service, courtesy and accommodation. The restaurant is beautiful and has a wonderful lively feel. Our meal was on a week night and was very well paced. The place is still very popular and has maintained its top quality in every sense. It was also great to see Nunzio working the crowd when he was not overseeing the kitchen staff.

    everything was very nice. The service and every one was nice. One thing was wrong was the same green veggies was on everyone dish. It was a bitter veggies didn't go with my wondeful salmon. I hope the chef can change that. I watched every plate go by and everyone had the same green veggies. This a too nice place to do that.

    Awesome! The pesto that comes with the bread is smooth and delicious. The scallops appy is tops. The shrimp with beans appy is great. The pasta is fresh and the sauces are light and fresh. The Branzino filleted table-side is perfect. Lemon-cello after the meal is a nice touch. Best Italian restaurant in Collingswood.

    The food was very good and the wait staff was very attentive . Unfortunately a large party was being held and the room was overly loud for a Thursday night. Being Gluten intolerant did not hinder my food choice as the chef assured me the meal would be prepared seperate and it was delicious. We will go back and hope for a quieter night.

    We had never been to Nunzio's, but were pleasantly surprised to find this little slice of Italy in Collingswood, NJ. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. We asked and he made recommendations. The specials sounded yummy, and we did end up getting one of the appetizer specials, which was scallops with mangos and over spinach. They were delicious. We shared a gorgonzola and pear salad which was yummy. We told the waiter that we wanted to share the salad and they separated it for us which was nice. I had the chicken parm with spaghetti and my husband had veal scallopini. Both were very tasty. We didn't realize that this restaurant was a BYOB, but next time we will be better prepared. There definitely will be a next time.

    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 .

    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.
