    Nello is a beautiful people hangout. Lovely setting, superb lighting and knowledgable staff with very solid and well presented food offerings. Very expensive but if that is the environment one is looking for, it is a perfect fit.

    The waiter was rude and inappropriate. Other than the manager apologizing for the waiters inexcusable behavior their was nothing done about it and no accommodations were given.

    We were at Nello some 17 years ago and back again Saturday night, early (were seeing a show at the Beacon Theatre later) so only 2-3 other tables occupied at the time. Food and service were outstanding. Nello didn't disappoint 17 years ago and didn't disappoint Saturday night.

    Extremely expensive for food that is average. Service was also below expectations. Not going back. Never order any dish with truffles - they put very few on your dish and it costs the same as gold.

    1-too many items listed on the menu are not available and , having been there on a regular basis, I can tell this is not an odd occurrence. 2- prices are now outrageous; not worth it. I am ( was) a 20 year customer. Too bad

    They wouldn’t seat us even though there were many empty tables. The Manager said Open Table reservations weren’t important and he didn’t care that we had a confirmed reservation. He turned us away in a very arrogant manner. He said, “This is NELLO!” “We don’t have to honor Open Table”. Very obnoxious.

    ❌ More expensive than a Michelin Star restaurant with no value! ⚠️ I LOVE food and have been lucky enough to dine at some of NYC’s best restaurants. But Nello fell extremely short, it was recommend by a friend of mine but I felt like I was being rushed the whole time. The menu was older with many creases and the prices were outrageous. I’ve dined at Michelin star restaurants before and even similar dishes a la Carte were priced hirer at Nello. They did not have the ahi tuna I wanted and so I chose the salmon instead. They did not warn me that the fish would come nearly RAW! They didn’t ask how I wanted my salmon prepared. Mind you the salmon was $59 and it wasn’t wild caught either. I was embarrassed that I took my friend here because of the prices and the service. The busboy also would keep asking if I was finished even though I was very clearly not. I should have looked at more reviews prior to booking and now that I have I see complaints from others about the pricing as well as turn away gift certificates. I won’t be back. You are better off spending your money at an actual Michelin star restaurant that will treat you well and give you perks like truffles or caviar in dishes included.

    Nello is expensive but worth it! The food and service are outstanding and the ambience is great. Fun place to watch people and watch people watch you. It has a "beautiful people" air about it, but unlike other places is actually worth the cost because the food and waitstaff is so wonderful.

    My wife and I had a great evening at Nello’s. The food was fantastic, Service, Ambience all deserved a 5 star rating. I gave 3 stars for value, because one should know Nello is expensive, though worth it, it is not a restaurant for price conscious diners, but for people who appreciate quality and elegance for a fair price in my opinion, but certainly not a value proposition.

    The restaurant needs a little refresh. The menus themselves are not fresh and clean. The ambiance needs a refresh and the selections should change. The menu content has been static for years.
