About the restaurant
HOW IT STARTED
Four brothers and 30 years ago- a small Italian restaurant was born in Tempe, serving beef subs, Grandpa Cesare's sausage recipe, Grandma Cleone's spaghetti sauce, cheesecake, and our original deep dish pizza.

Our little Nello's grew into an award winning "Best of Phoenix" restaurant year after year, after year... after year. Family recipes, family genius and family drama all keep Nello's going 30 years later to new generations of pasta and pizza connoisseurs.

A FEW THINGS THAT MAKE NELLO’S AHWATUKEE UNIQUE:
We are the only Nello’s location to use a wood fire oven, which was imported from Italy.
Our pasta is made in-house daily.
We stretch our own mozzarella.
Some of our meats are smoked and cured in-house.
All desserts are made from scratch in-house.
We support local Arizona farms by purchasing their seasonal produce whenever possible.

The pizza is very good, and love the patio setting! Took a while to get a waitress at first but I'll let it go.

Our server Tate was fun and knowledgable. He suggested great options and even triple checked with the kitchen that my food was indeed gluten free!~. Thanks Tate!

Sea & Smoke had great ambiance. We were able to sit outside but we could hear the jazz ensemble clearly. The manager introduced me to a purple gin that was awesome. We enjoyed the tempura ahi roll and ravioli for the appetizer. The 20 oz mesquite ribeye was perfect and the truffle mac and cheese was phenomenal. The Hawaiian Opakapaka with lobster mashed potatoes were a perfect pair. The chocolate lava cake definitely filled the meal.
