Nello Ratings and Reviews
Probably most over priced restaurant I have experienced
Simple veal dish was $59 and pasta was close to $50. Less than 6 bottles on the wine list under three figures. I ordered a bottle of red for $80 which reflects an average retail price on Vivino of $13.98
I never give really bad reviews however this place was a joke. Beware when you order any specials as they up the price ridiculously. For example the pasta entrees are $29 and my client orders a pasta special and its $98. On the check there were 2 Pans (?) for 30 at $15 each. I asked what this was and they said 2 bottles of water. DO NOT GO HERE!!!
Nello's was recommended by a family member. We went for lunch and loved it! Food was fabulous, service polite and efficient. Ambiance was charming though seating on the banquette was a bit too tight for comfort and privacy. Will go back again next time in NYC.
Based on reviews I wasn't expecting much for food and only booked to use a significant gift card. I agree that it was extremely overpriced for what you get, but the food was good. The rissoto and langostines were superb. The burrata and proscutto app was also good. The veal chop was under seasoned and not worth it. The service was extremely bad. We had reservations and were seated immediatley. Then we were ignored for at least 15 minutes while others around us were helped. We didn't even have water or a menu to look at. Once we did get menus the waiter was not helpful in making suggestions and was very disinterested. It took forever to get the drinks we ordered and we had to ask twice. I am not sure if poor service and an air of not caring is part of the vibe of this place. Do not plan on returning.
Very nice ambiance, but the prices of food and wine are outrageous for the portion size.
Waiters are attentive, but very used to working with high rollers .
There are many other more modestly priced restaurants in the city to choose from.
The restaurant is overrated.
The quality of food has gone down and the prices have gone up.The service was ok but I think they just try hard to sell their dishes
In the past the food was good and so I have been going every time there but now it has really changed the taste and not good.
Also the welcome is not warm
Will not go again and too overpriced.
Noise was unbearable. After waiting 45 minutes, the waiter told us that the pasta Monte Mare that we had ordered was not eatable, because the sea food was smelling bad. He asked us to make a new order. We decided to go home.
