                                          Every review that comments on the wait time, the service, etc. is 100% correct. Our reservation last night was for 7pm… we weren’t sat until 7:28pm. To add insult to injury, we were not served ANY food (including the bread we asked for 3x) until 8:32pm. So not only did we stand and wait 30min after our reservation, our server didn’t even try to take care of us once we were sat. We had to ask another bus boy to grab the bread because we were so hungry. And we only had a 2-hour parking space, so we had to eat our food in a hurry so as to run back to the car in time. The host was very apologetic, our server couldn’t care less. The food was good, but it wasn’t worth feeling like we were imposing on the staff at this restaurant.

                                          I really hate to write bad reviews. In fact this is one of my firsts. When we first arrived we were rudely greeted by a power trip of a hostess. Rude and overly aggressive for no reason. Whatever, maybe she was having a bad day. After we were seated we were greeted by our server, who seemed in a rush to get us to order, even though we JUST sat down. We ordered our drinks and appetizers no issue. When it came time to order our entrees the server wrote nothing down and rushed us through our orders once again. Well to nobody’s surprise 2 of our entrees were forgotten. It took 25 mins to get those entrees to our table. By this time everyone else had finished their dinners. This experience was extremely disappointing as it was Mother’s Day and my mothers birthday. They need attentive servers without a pompous attitude on their staff. The food was excellent but the service was terrible. P.S If you have children and would want to request a high hair for said child. They only have ONE. For the entire restaurant.You will be chastised for asking how they may accommodate your request of the ONE chair is in use.

                                          Great place, food was outstanding. The service was so-so. After having a reservation, our table was not actually available until 30-40 minutes later. The server was lovely and attentive however the food runner served only 2 of the 3 main dishes and gave the 3rd one to another table. The kitchen was having issues keeping up with the tickets so the party had finished their meals before the 3rd main was brought out again. Much of the room was complaining that it was cold, and it took over 20 mins for them to turn on the heat lamps. I’d be willing to go again, on a less busy evening and see if this was unusual, or how they function regularly.

                                          Like a rebranded Olive Garden but slower service and less attention to detail. Or maybe like an Aunt who started an Italian restaurant and she hasn’t quite figured things out yet.

                                          Messy host sat us at a four table when there was just two of us. And than waiter didn’t wait on us because they said we were waiting for two more, which was never true. Than I got an email saying we did not show up to the reservations when we did. It was ridiculous.

                                          We absolutely fell in LOVE with Nado. It is a quaint restaurant with a unique atmosphere & amazing staff. We even heard the chef singing Italian. It has elevated my bar on Italian food. The men got the spicy Fusilli Prosciutto, & I ordered the Saccottini Parmigiana & Truffle❣️😋😋😋 All 3 of us were in Heaven! 😋

                                          We were seated outside at the rear of the restaurant, so employees were constantly running into the service area to vape. It felt a bit as if we were in their way. Otherwise, the service and food were excellent.

                                          When I entered thru the door it goes into the hallway/kitchen/server area, with nobody to help you .. which was a little odd. The interior decor is super quaint and cute! We were greeted promptly at our table and our server was friendly. The dirty martinis and falagnina (?!sp?!) wine were fantastic! The food was good, not great - lacking that little bit of extra oomph/finesse. The zucchini flower appetizer batter was very heavy and thick, more of a cross between pancake batter and beer batter - too overpowering. The pizza was good, crust nice and crunchy but a little too doughy and lack a little zest in the sauce. My favorite of the dishes we ordered was the tortellini special. So, overall, it was not bad, but with so many amazing Italian food places to choose from, I probably wouldn’t be back.

                                          Came here by chance! Found an open reservation here on a whim. Didn’t have any expectations, just knew it was an Italian restaurant which is usually a safe option when dining with friends. However, this restaurant exceeded all my expectations. Firstly, we were greeted by a kind host, and guided into their whimsical “outdoor” dining area. The ambiance here is so fun and creative! Feels like a scene of Alice and wonderland. The food was amazing! Pasta is always a safe and likeable option, but their pasta dishes were absolutely delicious. Each person ordered a different dish and shared a pizza at the table. The plates tried were the: veal, pesto pasta, truffle pasta with added prosciutto, bolognese and a pizza with burrata and prosciutto. Everything was so good we were almost shocked at this hidden treasure. I would 1000% recommend coming to this place and be confident that anything ordered would be amazing. Also side note, they make a big deal for your birthday with a sign!

                                          Birthday dinner. The food is outstanding. Hands down the best pasta we’ve ever had. Our waitress Brin was very attentive and nice. She also knew the menu very well. The birthday song and experience was very fun. Unlike any other restaurant.

                                          Our third meal here while visiting from the east coast, where we’ve dined in many Italian restaurants including NYC to New Haven, Boston and Rhode Island. Nado’s truly has great trattoria/bistro dining. This Italian rates the pasta dishes A1. My family’s cooking comes from Benevento/Neopolitan, only 2 hours from Rome where this restaurant has its roots. A prior reviewer thought there was inconsistency due to regional differences in the dishes but the 3 of us found the pasta, meat/fish, appetizers and salads spot on. The service was unbelievably fast, totally dependent upon the diner’s speed of ordering and lingering over each course. I love that the menu is somewhat limited because that translates to fresh and in season food. The ambiance is eclectic and fun like the wonderful attentive staff and the wine list has quality choices by the glass and bottle. Well done Nado! If only there was a place like this in the Northwest hills of Connecticut… we’d be there a few times a week. If your traveling you can be confident that you’ll have a lovely meal and will not suffer any traveler’s regrets. Bene gracia Nada!
