Since it was Valentines Day they immediately gave a complimentary glass of champagne and a chocolate covered strawberry cut in two. They make their own pasta at Nado so the pasta had that great fresh flavor. I had the gnocchi bolognaise and my wife had ravioli burrata both were excellent.
The restaurant has two rooms one of which is an enclosed patio where they featured a live musician that evening. We were in the main room which was small but very nice.

Small and cozy inside, very friendly and enthusiastic staff. Flavors were incredible, bolognese was just like we had on our recent trip to Italy. Beef filet was overcooked, but still amazing dish. Supertuscan that Alex recommended was perfect.

Some of the best true north Italian food we’ve ever had! Casual, “family and friends” feel with good pricing and fun wine selections. Expect to take your time here, making memories and conversation. This isn’t the kind of restaurant that wants you to pay and leave ASAP. They won’t bring the check unless you ask, and won’t hound you for your next course order. Just relax and leave a hurried lifestyle at the door. The outdoor seating was great on a chilly night thanks to the abundance of heater options. Music was enjoyable with cover songs that set a relaxing mood. Delicious and quaint. So glad to have this gem on the island!

Let me start by saying that this place is amazing!! The restaurants ambiance is amazing. The service was amazing and the food was next level!!. The food was delicious not the run of the mill Italian food that you get from carbon copy restaurants. This place is traditional northern region Italian food!!!...so good our stomachs have never been as content as they where after our meal at Nado!!....thank you to the owner I believe his name is Sandro for making us feel at home he came bye our table numerous times to check on us and even offered us a complimentary glass of wine. Nado will definitely be our go to Italian restaurant for now on!!!

The pizza was thick, doughy and without flavor. We tried to order a particular Chardonnay only to be told they were out of it. Salads were fine .

The food was delicious, as always. However, our reservation was for 7:30, but we did not receive our food until after 9:00. Not sure whose fault it was, but I don't think it was the server's.

I had a reservation for 4 that turned into 7. That change was handled very well. The service from that point forward was terrible. The excuses. The wait. Ridiculous. We were literally the last to get food in the restaurant that night. The owner, who was present, never even came out to check on us. While we appreciate you comping our meals and drinks (very thoughtful) we would have preferred better service, honesty with kitchen issues and people checking to see if we needed anything. The food is always great but waiting 2 1/2 hours for 3 pizza’s and 1 pasta????? Nope.

We were a party of five and we ate on the patio. We were worried it would be chilly but it wasn’t at all. The decor is cozy, feels like you’re in a living room. Ok.. the food: we decided to eat family style and share because we were all curious about the different options. We ordered the Mediterranean salad which fresh and delicious. Also the large Margherita pizza but we substituted the buffalo for the regular mozzarella. Let me preface by saying I lived in Italy for 25 years and I thought this pizza was on par with any I’ve had in Italy. My friends loved it as well. The truffle pasta and the gnocchi were delicious as was the chicken cutlet. The owner is a young Italian chef. We love Nado Republic and it’s authentic Italian offerings.

Ignored checking in. Sat at table for 10 minutes without acknowledgement. Finally went to get them at bar. Waiter was nice and apologetic but the menu didn’t look great either. We decided to cut our losses and left.
