    A lovely little spot with excellent food. We sat outside with heaters which made it warm enough. The covered patio looks very sweet. Small indoor area. Reasonable prices. Had the nightly chef special: lasagne bolognese (reportedly his mother's recipe) that must have had 20+ layers. Definitely this place is worth a try!

    Very loud. Disco music and dark. Hard to have a conversation. I have been here many times over many years and it was wonderful at first but now I will only order their pizzas to go, which are wonderful. Pasta dishes too heavy and salty. Annoying they charge for bread and water and that detail is not obvious as they casually offer you water and bread but you later find out there is a charge. Just not consistent with other nearby restaurants. Also I was charged full price for a pasta side that I was told was a substitute for a main course side of veggies and potatoes. I paid for 2 full meals but missed out on my veggie and potato sides!!! They do give a 10% military discount so that is nice but if you go consider take out pizza and go somewhere else for a nice relaxing expensive dinner!!!!

    The atmosphere is so welcoming at Nado Republic, it's the perfect spot for any occasion, whether for a date, or a birthday celebration. The chef has set a delicious menu with choices of pasta, salads, and specials of fish or meat. My favorites include the brussel sprout app or meatballs. The staff is excellent and make you feel right at home. I highly recommend.

    The food was great with lots of flavor and well worth the cost. The problem was the slow service but the staff was very friendly and great. The biggest problem with the restaurant is only having one bathroom. The line at the bathroom was long and took 20-mins.

    Our server was friendly but not very attentive. The salmon was over cooked but the mashed potatoes and vegetables were good. My water was empty but our server didn’t notice and we had to ask for more water. After finishing our meal he came by to see if we needed anything else (see if we were ready for our check) but we wanted dessert so we asked about a dessert menu. He told us what the options were and we ordered dessert. The crème brûlée was small and not very good $16.

    We arrived early! We sat down and ordered drinks. The food was good and service was good. However, one meal came out while the rest of us had appetizers. Then another 3 meals came out 20 minutes later. Then we had to ask for the final 2. Waiter was so kind and offered up a dessert for the mix up. Cool Place, music was ok. It was busy! It seemed to have a lot of staff.

    The past was very good, for the most part. Anything with the white truffle cream-parmesan sauce is always wonderful. There were 3 of us-I made a reservation, and when we got there, we were seated at a table for two outside (no big deal—there were heaters), next to a wall, with the third seat jutting out into an aisle. Even then, it wasn’t too bad. However, we ordered focaccia and a drink that were forgotten about (at least we weren’t billed for them), and the waiter ignored us when it was time to close the check. I don’t normally leave reviews, but I felt like I should for this. I get that people make mistakes—I was a server at once, too. For the amount we paid for three plates of pasta, the service should have been much better.

    We had a reservation for three inside but after arriving they sat the three of us at a small two person table outside wedged between two other tables. It was very uncomfortable. Our server had a large party he was attending to, and left us waiting for long periods of time throughout the evening. He also did a poor job of explaining things like the fact that the “complimentary” bread is actually not free at all. And that brings me to the food. We order veal saltinbocca, pasta amitriciana and a margherita pizza. The pasta itself was fine but the guanciale or bacon in the dish (which isn’t mentioned on the menu) was barely cooked and very fatty. Because the fat hadn’t been rendered down it was very chewy and unpleasant. The veal was supposed to be wrapped in prosciutto but I only had a few bites with prosciutto on the underside of the dish. The veal itself had not been prepared properly and was very chewy. Overall, this was not worth the price at all, though I imagine this place will do fine just because of the heavy traffic in the area during holidays and summer. It’s unfortunate the space is being taken up by a restaurant that puts so little care into the dining experience.

    Nado Republic is a charming neighborhood restaurant. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The Brussels sprouts are delicious. We also enjoyed the tasty beet salad. The food is not outstanding in an increasingly “foodie” San Diego but overall, it’s a pleasant experience.

    Understanding that it was a very busy night with limited staff, It took an exceedingly long time just to get drinks. It was about 45 minutes to get our food order. The server was friendly enough however seems to be overloaded with the number of tables he had to work with. What he returned to give our checks he never asked If we wanted to order dessert. Is over all i'd say the experience was mediocre at best.

    It was good not amazing, food was pricey but that’s to be expected. Restaurant had a nice vibe. Only complaints were that the truffle pasta didn’t have much flavour and the risotto rice was a bit too al dente for us.

    We went to celebrate my brothers birthday, service started off strong but after waiting 45+ minutes for our food the waitress asks “so are we feeling desert?” as to we reply that haven’t even gotten our food yet. she realizes she hasn’t even put in our order yet. she tells us it’ll be about another 15-20 minute wait as to we end up leaving but we still get charged about $50 for the $6 water and the two appetizers we got. which i think was unfair, as last discounting a small fee for the inconvenience. as exciting as the food looked, i don’t know if i’ll be back just from the way she didn’t even seem genuine.

    Average food. My pasta was not cooked al dente. The lamb shank was flavorless. Only bottle water available for purchase. They don’t have tap water to serve their customers (which I believe that it’s illegal in California). Would I return? Absolutely not!

    I believe this was my fourth time in the restaurant and usually, the service is good, but this last time was not, my waitress either was bad or she was managing many tables at the same time. The food is good, prices are fair but not sure if I'm going back.

    It wasn’t a bad experience, but it could have been so much better. Wrong music for an Italian vibe. Cheap silverware and chipped plate. $6 for water was unexpected. Wine was overpriced. $44 for what we found would be $12 retail.
