A neighborhood gem! Delicious food, and eclectic atmosphere!
The food is just good. The prices are crazy. I don’t mind to pay for good food and we regularly do so. But this restaurant is totally absurd. But the place was packed. As long as the upper east people are willing to pay $40 for a simple pasta dish or $75 for a prosciutto appetizer, why not.... but I wouldn’t recommend this place as there are so many good Italian restaurants in the city.
I've heard of Nello before but I couldn't imagine how good it actually is. The food there is delicious, and I'm not talking just about the pastas, even the artichoke salad or a grilled wild salmon have that special something that makes it a lot better. Stefano helped me choose a wine for my order and I just want to say thanks to him because he gave me a great advice. Awesome place that I recommend to anyone!
The food is fine, the service is very good and it’s exorbitantly priced bc of the location.
And staff very professional and accommodating
The menu at Nello is mostly Italian cuisine, with all the pastas and seafood, and actually everything there is extremely tasty. If you want some exotic food – how about pasta with black ink sauce? As you guessed, there are all types of delicatessen – grilled octopus, lobsters, clams and so on. So it's a great restaurant if you just want to have dinner, but it also suits well for trying something new. Also, Stefano should definitely get a pay rise :)
Nello is an awesome Italian restaurant! If you're looking for great Italian or a glass of really tasty wine in a good atmosphere, you will not be disappointed! Alvaro was very friendly and made sure everything was as ordered. Great service and great food!
Besides the meals being very tasty, I love Nello’s set up especially the Bar, handled by a very gentle and friendly Joseph, the Bartender. I made a reservation online and they set up the table better than I thought. Popping the question to my girlfriend after an evening of two plates of the Ugly tomato salad, the juicy Ossobucco, and the Black cod with sweet miso was perfect and well worth it. Nello now holds a special place in my heart for making that fantastic and dreamy evening possible. To everyone at the Nello Restaurant, thanks guys, will be visiting again soon.
The Minestrone soup and the Linguine vongole served at Nello’s always brighten up my day. Since my first visit to this gorgeous restaurant, I haven’t been able to go to another one. My dates and corporate one-on-one meetings have always taken place there. I just love everything about Nello including the fabulous staff they have: Giacomo, Atilla, and the other guys there. Coming for Veal chop with wild mushrooms on Wednesday. Keep doing the good work!
This is one of our favorite lunch spots in the city. Food and service are outstanding.
My girlfriend and i had a fabulous time here. Drinks are delicious and was have to have gluten free options.
Nicely appointed, excellent food, excellent service, noise level was elevated due to the tight table arrangement. Definitely costly , however, overall very solid restaurant with a nice wine list and well trained staff. Highly recommend.
I made a booking for a quiet lunch with my husband for my 30th birthday. After ordering a bottle of champagne and 4 course meal the manager came over demanding that we move because our table could fit four people and we were just two.
When we explained it was my birthday and would prefer not to be moved mid-meal, he whined a series of excuses. The manager then came over 3 additional times to explain he still wanted us to move and if he decided to let us stay at the slightly larger table he would be doing us a huge favor and next time he was going to seat us in the back.
Eventually we left because we did not want to spend the whole meal being accosted about being seated at a table their waiter chose for us.
The fact we are repeat customers was discounted. And, with every meal at this restaurant costing $1000, you would think their staff could follow basic etiquette.
Expensive, but wore them it.
Never fails to impress with the quality of cuisine, mature service and refined hospitality. This is a dining experience for adults. Thankfully.
No guarda relación el costo con la calidad de la comida
I tried Nello's for the first time because I had passed it walking down Madison Avenue and found it's outdoor seating beckoning with a charming aspect. I was not disappointed. The interior is extremely attractive too not to say Romantic and the food seems very fresh and beautifully prepared. The chicken soup I ordered was the best I have found in NYC! My diet is quite restricted but the staff was extremely careful and creative in making sure I had some delicious options. The service started out rather stilted and unfriendly but improved in the course of the meal. Prices are hefty and the soup, though delicious, is VERY expensive. Also they only offer two choices of beers...sad for one who can't drink wine. Still...I plan to return.
Amazing Amazing Amazing
Very over-priced for slightly above average Italian food.
Stumbled on Nello last April and had the most delicious fish ever. Went back this weekend with my daughter and we both loved our meals--swordfish for her, veal for me. I will, though, recommend it for a special occasion as it is quite pricey.
Great euro scene. Drips of the moneyed upper east siders. Service is great- and food comes out quickly and consistently. Over half the patrons - probably closer to 80% are European- wealthy I suspect. The only draw back is it’s expensive $$$
Oppulent surroundings and beautiful ! The floral arrangements were out of this world! I went downstairs and saw the gorgous private room with all the surrounding gold, marble, and wine cellar. I want my birthday dinner there! The food was scrumptious and the service was impeccable. Loved it!
Surprised and disappointed. We were looking forward to the much-praised table-side Caesar salad, which arrived bland from the kitchen. Waiter mixed up our drink order twice, but at least we were only charged for the first round. The food was unimpressive, bland and seemingly prepared without any care for seasoning. In fairness, we were there on a Monday night, so perhaps the regular kitchen staff was not working. To top it off, we were brought the wrong coats. What? With entrees $65 to $75 (or into 3 figures for truffles) this felt like this Emperor had no clothes.
Delightful lunch with friends. We chose this restaurant for bringing good memories of previous trips. We live in São Paulo, Brazil, and we will be back in the next opportunity. Very good food and gentile service!!!
Very attentive staff and beautiful ambiance but extremely overpriced and food was a bit bland.
The worst restaurant experience for many years. I booked Nello when I had a good experience 10 years earlier..This time it was a parody of serving Italian food you can get 70% cheaper on all Italian restuarants..The servers were arrogant and stood in the way for eachother and let you understand that they were more important than you. When I ordered a wine for $ 150..the cheapest on the wine list, the balded waiter thankfully lost the interest ... but always tried to pour more wine into the glass so maybe we could have 1 bottle more. There were few guests. We arrived at 9pm and left the place at 10pm when they started turning off the lighting, as it was a theater ... and indeed it was actually ... The location is good and the decor may be charming but the mentality and respect for the customer have left the place ... forever forever ... and i have too. Do not be fooled by this restaurant. ,,, total yesterday
Nello has become our go to restaurant for a delightful Saturday afternoon lunch. The service is excellent and the food consistently delicious. It is simply beautiful with extensive floral arrangements. Very romantic. It is pricey but you feel it worth it because of the experience. I have enjoyed their pasta dishes and their Veal. The bread basket is yummy. My friend enjoys their Dover sole and salmon. They offer a decadent pasta with truffles by request. If you are looking for a stunning, romantic and relaxing, quiet restaurant and cost isn't a big factor this is the place!!!
A special treat! Dining at Nello is always a wonderful gastronomic experience and well worth the high price (if you don't mind!). The food and service are both amazing. Our favorite waiter is Albero...he makes it a less "stuffy" experience!
Lunch at Nello is always a must while we visit NYC. Superb menu and service, refined dining at its best.
Beautiful people, beautiful decor, beautiful experience.
Very expensive, but....a once in a lifetime bucket experience
Wonderful dining experience! Amazing staff, they know how to make you feel special! The black truffles pasta is excellent, I spent 195.00 USD on this main course, but it's worth it! Strongly recommend!
Great place for lunch but super overpriced for endive salad $34
Excellent friendly wait staff. Paid attention to small details at the table
Excelente experiencia! Nos trataron y comimos muy bien!
Es caro pero consideramos que lo valió.
To expensive Restaurant. Poor quantity in comparison with other great Italian restaurants in NY.
We found Nello too expensive, we had no appetizer an eat mostly pasta
still one of the best in NYC
Makes Jean George prices look like a value meal. Food was great, service great but pushy to buy expensive drinks and items. Beautiful floral arrangements and the price of the water alone will definitely cover those costs.
Extremely expensive, $45 for an appetizer proccuto and melone.
Altijd heerlijk om bij nello te eten het is natuurlijk heel duur maar soms is dat het waard
