If you like to feel taken to the cleaners this is the place !! Outrageous expensive for the quality. Been to many top restaurants all over the world but never had to pay $99,- for a spaghetti with clams, shrimps (2) , few calamari and 1/6 of a lobster !!! Wine was marked up 4+ times. Services was great and food overall was good but the prices (all of it) just make you feel like a fool going there ! Never again

Nello is Nello. Very expensive but you get a show while you dine. Upper East Side types, celebrities and extra service.
That’s why we go.

Service was slow. It was not that busy but took a long time to get drinks and we were close to the bar. Waited to have our order taken.

Always very pleasant staff but too slow

Way to expensive compared to other restaurants for the same dishes.

Steak tartar at the same price as an entre is ridiculous.

Absolutely fantastic high end, Italian food. Amazing service, high quality ingredients, lovely ambiance… great for dates, special occasion or business dinner. Cacio e Pepe, rigatoni w/eggplant and the risotto were out favorites. Do not skip dessert, I would recommend their elevated Napoleon!

I do not get to write reviews like this nearly enough!

Excellent and attentive service. I had a long business lunch, and I appreciated that the waiter didn't rush us. We enjoyed a drink before lunch and one during, as well as dessert and coffee. Everything was exquisite, and your martinis are mixed to perfection and served in a perfect martini glass!

Poor food preparation, no taste at all. Tasteless veal, lobster, pretty much all items we ordered were very average. The place is totally overpriced and they aim everything at the “lux-chic ambiance” which ends up being borderline theatrical, forgetting the very basics of high end gastronomy. For this price range there is way better value in the neighborhood. Service was ok but nothing impressive. in general a total disappointment.
