Great, but not 100%
Great atmosphere, & good food, but a couple of issues. Only after 10-15 minutes w/ the menus & we had decided as a group what to order, we were told that the pizza ovens were not working correctly & that the chefs did not feel comfortable serving pizza that night. I appreciate the fact that they didn't want to serve us anything less than perfect, but the server should bring this up sooner, (especially since we had a late reservation and they must have known this for a while). Perhaps offer some sort of discount? We were then obligated to share only small, expensive items ("fine-dining" entrees) & thus left hungry. Bad-timing, I guess...

Great, clean Italian!!
Wonderful, hip, restaurant with a great menu, attentive staff and freindly owners.
The eggplant lasagna is beyond yummy! Finally a place where I can eat gluten free and my husband can order something satisfying. A liittle bit too loud on the noise volume level, but I've yet to find a place in town that has figured it out.
Will be returning again and again, since the food is that good!

New location, same great food
A few new items like baked eggplant and bracciole. Both winners. We got a bunch of small olates and two entrees to share among three of us. The veal Milanese is the best we have ever had, period. The staff led by the Pallottas is friendly and knowleadgeable and really helps make the evening. Highly recommend!

Better than ever!
We were frequent dinners at their former location. Wow, what a change for the better! The dining room is at least 2x the size of the old, airy and modern, with a great view of the greenway. The food was even better- more small plates and pasta to die for. We even had desert, a light and not too sweet ricotta pie. Park in the garage behind the restaurant (very convenient) or on the street

Food was sensational from beginning to end. Space is beautiful and waitstaff fun and friendly and attentive!

Sorry no pizza
Apparently the faulty pizza oven is being replaced so i was a little disappointed that I could not have gluten free pizza but the food was really good. Even had a good range of gluten free desserts .

Great food, a little loud
Nebo is a hot spot. The bar was packed when we got there and the dining room quickly filled up after that. The food was terrific. The only downside is that the room is so cavernous and like Trade, next door, the owners chose to leave the ceiling exposed. As a result, the room really echoes and with no insulation or other cushioning, it's really difficult to carry on a conversation at dinner. With that exception, everything was fabulous. Fun place, great food.

Had a really great night. I recommend the squid ink pasta! Don't miss the ricotta pie.

Could have been 5 stars!
Great food, Michael our server was excellent. Our dinner was delicious. Unfortunately, the hostesses were off their game that night. We made this res a month earlier and specifically requested to be in a location away from serving stations and doors but were seated almost in the kitchen. Could have been five stars! We'll give Nebo another try since we live nearby and think that this could become an outstanding restaurant once the kinks are worked out.

Fabulous First Time Visit
Our waiter was phenomenal. This was our first time and his drink and food suggestions (including how much to order) were spot on. We loved the arancini, veal and shrimp pasta dish. The tables in the dining room are fairly far apart and the view of Atlantic Avenue was great for people watching. Will definitely go again!

The food was excellent, my cod was delicious and my wife's gnocchi (which I don't usually care for) was the best I have ever eaten. Service was attentive; one of the owners stopped at our table twice to be sure everything was satisfactory. The space was very attractive and would be romantic if not for the excessive noise from several larger groups (6-12 people) seated near us who were rather boisterous. If we return there we would ask for an outside table, weather permitting.

I brought my girlfriend here
I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday dinner, and everything we ordered was amazing. She has Celiac disease and must eat gluten free, the gluten free pasta selection was excellent and it was cooked flawlessly!

Food is excellent. Best of
Food is excellent. Best of all places I ate at while at a conference in Boston. Disappointed the ovens were being replaced and could not try the pizza.

Love the new location
I never visited Nebo at it's Washington Street location but LOVE it's new spot on Atlantic Ave. The space is bright and very chic, and the bar was packed with the downtown after work crowd. My girlfriends & I were sat in the middle of the dining room, which was pretty energetic but not too loud. Our server was great, very knowledgable and recommended delicious wines and fetched answers from the bartender about gluten-free options (I didn't know they made gluten-free wine!). We each ordered salads and entrees and everything was amazing. I would definitely come for dinner again.

If there is no pizza (and there hasn't been any since they opened) they need to have some additional menu options.

As good as it ever was
We have been long time customers of Nebo from their Washington St. days. The new space is roomy and dramatic. The food was as always great. The famous lasagna was light and tasty, the veal was perfect. Nebo offers a modern take on Italian food at very reasonable prices. The bar is very cool with room to eat or just get a drink. There are a couple of televisions so you won't miss the game. Overall highly recommended.

Gluten Free Fantastic Find
My 9 year old daughter and I went for dinner on Saturday night. My daughter said it was the best Gluten Free pizza she has ever had - and we've dined at many restaurants in many cities. She has had Celiac Disease for three years and to me, this restaurant was an exceptional find! I did not eat Gluten Free and my home-made fresh pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious. We had the flourless chocolate cake for dessert - yum!! The waitstaff was attentive, friendly and funny. We will be back soon with our whole family!

Perfect Girls Night
With a great atmosphere, excellent wine list and yummy food, we couldn't of asked for a better girl's night. Make sure to try to goat cheese appetizer - it is perfection!

Following the trend to open a new restaurant on Boston's beautiful 2-mile in-town park, The Greenway, the Pallotta sisters have closed their restaurant in The North End, and reopened it in fancy new quarters on The Greenway. It's much larger than it was in its former location, and the decor is industrial chic with huge ceiling to floor windows overlooking the park, and its own large heated sidewalk cafe. It has an extensive menu, and it's hard to chose a dish. We ordered Polpettini (Meatballs) and Arancini (Riceballs) for the table. Both were delicious. Overall, my only complaint was that they charged you for the bread! It's worth a visit, especially if you're in the neighborhood strolling the beautiful Greenway.

Nebo Night Out!
We were in Boston to visit our daughter who attends college in the area, and we had a nice evening and dinner at Nebo with our daughter and her boyfriend. Lively atmosphere, good food and quality service. We all liked it!

Very good, not great
Nebo is sleek and new and very trendy. The after work crowd flocks to the bar and the tables are full with people enjoying their meal. The evening turned out fine once we got past the very strict woman in Christian Laboutin shoes at the front desk who, despite our reservation, was very reluctant to seat us because our entire party hadn't yet arrived. (I do think we may have been punished for our insistence by being seated at the table next to the entrance to the open kitchen and within reach of the cold wind that was blew in through the front door.) Our server was delightful and she happily explained specials and answered our questions. The noise level is better than that of Nebo's neighbor, Trade, but it's plenty noisy.

Perfect spot for meeting friends
Perfect spot for meeting friends after work. Tastes to suit all palates. Lots of "small plate" options and we loved the Budino. Portions were generous and dinners were well plated. Service was outstanding, including a long table-side visit from the owner. It was not my first visit but it was for four others in my party. Like me, they all plan to return.
