Great food, OK service. My only complaint is that the restaurant can be loud. That said, I'll definitely be returning!

I scheduled a business lunch at Nebo with someone I had never met in person and who was doing me a favor by meeting. I arrived early to be at the restaurant before him, checked in for my reservation., and was seated. My dining companion showed up 20 minutes later, only to inform me that he was waiting for me for 20 minutes - at another table. He had given the host my name and asked for my table, but no one checked that I already was there. It was embarrassing and wasted the limited time we had together. While the food at Nebo was good as always, the professionalism was severely lacking, and I won't schedule any other business meetings there.

Valentine’s Day gift from our daughter so very special. We had a lovely time though it was quite noisy (we were definitely on the older side of the patrons so undoubtedly couldn’t hear as well as most). The food was fine though not outstanding. But as I said we had a very happy time.

FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE! Nebo was the worst dining experience I have ever had hands down. Quality of food, customer service, and timeliness were all terrible. The biggest thing I want to review is their customer service. Their managers (I spoke to two; a man and a woman. I wish I got their names) were both extremely rude, snobby and worst of all the man literally said that, AND I QUOTE, I was “not a fit” for Nebo. Are you kidding me? What person in the restaurant industry would say that to a customer?! In addition to the terrible service and hospitality, the food was awfully bland (which you’ll notice other reviewers have said the same about this place too). The veal cutlet I ordered was legitimately rubber. I seriously could not cut into it at all. I sawed and sawed at it with a knife, but the thing simply would not cut. That’s when I told the manager, and found out I was “not a fit”... Go find somewhere else and don’t waste your money at Nebo. Walk half a mile down the street to Boston’s North End and you’ll find hundreds of better restaurants that have real authentic Italian food.

We were seated near the bar which was very noisy and by the door which was freezing. I was disappointed that we didn’t have a real table even though we had reserved one. We ordered the bread (paid for it, usually it’s free?) but it didn’t come with any olive oil. Then when we paid for the meal we gave two cards but only one card was run on the whole bill. The pasta was tasty but being seating right next to the door and at the bar made the whole experience less than worth the high prices.

Probably the worst service I have ever had. Waitress messed up 4 out of 5 meals. Forgot multiple items, never asked how our meal was going or if we needed more drinks. Meals came out at scattered times. Waitress was rude

First time at NEBO - it was lunch - nothing too heavy - so I ordered the ROMA Spuckie sandwich - which was slow roasted porchetta, fried egg, crispy onion rings, tomato jam... sounded good.
Waiter seemed annoyed we were just getting sammies. Just an FYI - don't order this sandwich! the porchetta tasted and smelled like it was either microwaved or boiled... the onion rings were good...

Nice atmosphere but the food wasn’t as good as I expected it to be - especially for the price. My friend enjoyed her meal (sea bass) but I was disappointed with my gnocchi. We got the burrata as an appetizer and were surprised when it didn’t come with bread. We had to pay extra for a side of bread. Overall, not worth the price.

The food was a mixed bag. The appetizers were very good, the zucchini lasagna was delicious, however, the bolognese was some of the worst I have had anyway. It did not taste like bolognese and was very acidic tomato taste. Very disappointing.

It was a date night place for us. Loved the decor and ambiance. Service was lovely from the host to the waitress and food runner..
Pros: huge pro the Burrata was literally to die for delicious
Dessert fried dough strips with cappuccino gelato shut up it was so good. Fresh pasta was cooked perfectly and that garlic bread tho!!

Cons: loud, meatballs were a 4 out of 10 at best really dry little flavor. The sauce that came with was delicious
The bolo left a lot to be desired tasted like a tomato sauce that just had meat added, not a sauce that had been cooking with meat for hours.

Would definitely go back and try the pizza that looked amazing !!

The service was good overall but the bar staff was a bit of putting when my friend asked a question about a wine. No need for that - the real issue is my friend is a professional and trained in this area and probably knew more than the bar staff. No need to be insulting.

"We love this place – one of the best places in Boston. The warm country olives, the Salami Misti with toasted Italian bread with the fig spread is amazing and the Bobby Flay zucchini lasagna puts all other restaurants to shame. Service is exceptional and friendly, a testament to the owners and the management.

I like Nebo and mostly have gone for dinner. But it is extremely overpriced. You charge for bread and don't provide pasta with dishes that would be good with pasta. You don't even have on your menu an option to order a side of pasta. I remember when you first open I asked for pasta and your staff said I would have to order another entree.

I got the lemon chicken which I thought was very good, but it just chicken and a few artichokes. No pasta, potato or vegetable. And serviced on this skinny plate to make it look like a bigger portion. And it was $23!!

We went to Nebo for an anniversary dinner with another couple, thought we'd try something new to us. We were NOT disappointed, absolutely incredible. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly employees from hostess to the table clearer. We highly recommend Luis D as a waiter. He made excellent suggestions for drinks, apps and entree's. He was attentive at all times but never hovering over you. Highly recommend Nebo!

Nebo is at a nice location with excellent wait staff but very ordinary Italian food. We were a group of 4 with a baby. The attention from the waiter made it a nice evening for us. The kitchen needs to be a lot better to be considered worthwhile. Ordered multiple appetizers and 4 entrees and drinks. Spent almost $400 and the food wasn't worth it. Won't be back!!

It was New Year’s Eve and the food was absolutely delicious. The bad side was that we felt pressured since they were so busy. One may view the waitress coming to our table that often as energetic and helpful, but for us it felt like we were rushed. The restaurant was loud since every seat was taken.
However, the food was great and we had a nice time.

My husband and I had a wonderful New Year’s Eve dinner at Nebo!! The atmosphere was amazing and the food was spectacular (I highly recommend the zucchini lasagna with Bolognese sauce)!! We sat and took our time, taking in the scene and people walking by us (we had a window table). We didn’t plan on staying for dessert but we didn’t want to leave so we ordered a couple of cappuccino’s and the Deconstructed Cannoli which was out of this world!! We have already told our friends and will definitely be back again : )

The food and atmosphere was great. It was the service that they lacked in. The hostesses were not friendly by any means and were a bit stand offish. The waiter was very friendly but was slow to attend to us.

We had 9 total, 4 adults and the rest 6yo-8mos. The owner ensured we had a great table, delivered fresh ricotta cheese for the baby, and padded our lobster baby seat! Amazing people, from the front door through the last bite. Food was super, and the service impeccable - the owners friendly ways were evident with every interaction we had!
