Soup is excellent. Cannelloni was mediocre. Staff pushes you to order more than you want.

Once again Nello was an amazing experience. Love everything about it especially the fine food. Eating at Nello has now become a tradition for us whenever we are in NYC.

First, I know Manhattan and the upper East side is expensive, but this restaurant ridiculous. Wealthy people understand money and don’t throw it away, appropriate pricing applies to all incomes.
Most bottles of wine were Googled, all five times the retail value. Very sure most establishments only double the price. Is this effecting business? I was there on a Friday night before the long Christmas weekend, got my reservation that afternoon on Open Table, could have picked any hour, and the place was almost empty all evening.
The food was excellent, atmosphere nice, value terrible for what the city has to offer.

There are many, many fantastic neighborhood Italian restaurants in NYC with numerous in midtown and UEside. This is five star cost for a two star experience. It was a surprise. Would be fine for about 1/3 the cost. The food is good but far overpriced.

I think the food is great but is really
Overpriced. 4 pcs of ravolli for $64.00, crazy. Better to eat at Sant Ambroeuse.

The food was excellent and the service was very good. My guest and I enjoyed wonderful entrees, sides,and shared two desserts. It was pricey but I had prepared for that. Sadly, the reason I gave only a 3 star "overall" rating was because of an incident at the end of the evening. I went downstairs to use the only ladies room, locked the door (with the 'dead bolt') and TWO gentlemen who were dining with a large bolsterous group pushed the door open and came in - I was shocked and pushed the door shut (as I had not yet finished). I was too upset to speak to the manager right then (we had already settled our bill). However, when I called upon my immediate return to my hotel and spoke to the manager, I shared my experience. He apologized and I told him I was very upset and would most likely never visit Nello again. He simply said he was sorry, he knew who the two gentlemen were and told me they had "been cut off" from drinking. That was it. I was appalled at his complete lack of concern for the safety of his customers. While those gentlemen were probably drunk and just having "fun" it really upset me.
