Love this restaurant. Food is consistently wonderful and delicious. Love the menu. Paying for bread - not so much. Other than that, one of my favorite restaurants in Boston.

We came in Saturday night, 645. We were promptly seated, taken care of well by our server. Terrible with names, but a tall gentleman who was very attentive and took care of us throught our entire dining experience. My girlfriend has Celiac disease, and they accomidated nicely with their variety of gluten free option, many places have none or very few which stinks to drop her down to always those same couple options, steak or salad... Food was excellent the only minor issue was they have veal milanese on the dinner menu but not parmesan. No big deal, I asked if they could make me one anyways since they obviously have all the ingredients. As with everything else, "sure, no problem". Excellent veal, excellent handmade bucatini. But the bill came and they charged me full price for the milanese, and $16 for a side of pasta making my veal parm $45. Which I thought was overkill, maybe an extra $5-$7 since I wasnt getting the full veal dish and just an upcharge wouldve been sufficient as opposed to paying for 2 full dinners while only getting one. Just a minor detail, otherwise fantastic! WE WILL BE BACK! Ive already told a ton of people about this place too! Keep up the GREAT work!

My husband and I went here before going to a show - Easy to find, reservation waiting, really wonderful food and wait staff. I am entirely gluten free - they have so many options and are capable of handling food allergies. I would recommend to just about anyone looking for a special meal! It was easy and delicious.

We went on Sat. night for my husband's birthday. Some reviews complained about service but said food was good so we tried it. The restaurant was busy so we hoped for the best. Past reviewers must not have had Giovanni as their waiter. He was excellent - friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about food/portions. Burrata and Polpo appetizers were delicious. We were tempted to go for the Bobby Flay Throwdown winner, Zucchini Lasagna, but opted for the Bucatini Fra Diavolo and Tagliatelle with Scallops - both were great. Since we had checked off "special occasion-birthday" on the Open Table reservation, Giovanni brought over dessert with a candle at the end of our meal (without us mentioning it). Decor is lovely - sort of rustic industrial with exposed brick, etc. It was a little loud in there because it was so crowded but not bad because we had a nice table for 2 by the windows. All in all a good night. I would definitely recommend it to friends/family.

Sadly, many things went wrong on Saturday night. First I was told by the hostess that she could not seat us until all members of our party were present however, the table right next to us we're seated and the rest of their party showed up 20 minutes later.....Our server was not to switft and we had to repeatedly ask for items 2 and 3 times and repeat all 3 courses of our meal twice; not what your would expect for this price point. The food was good but I would not say great. The grilled octopus appetizer was delicious as was the burrata and prosciutto. My branzino was cooked perfectly but the cioppino the other 3 members of my party ordered was sub-par; definitely lacked flavor. The ricotta torta for dessert was excellent!

Nebo is my favorite restaurant in Boston! I was a fan back when it was on North Washington St and our North End Moms group would meet there for dinner and drinks. Palotta sisters and their Mom always took good care of us, and they still do. Food is authentic Italian and delicious, and the restaurant has a great vibe at their seaport location. My significant other took me for my birthday and we had a great time! Anything I’ve ever had there is delicious, but some of my favorites are the mussels appetizer, broccoli rabe gnocchi and spumoni sundae (which they brought with a candle). Thank you!!!!

The burrata was really great but I find it silly when you're charged for bread to put it on...I don't recommend the ricotta gnocchi at all. Really greasy and odd texture/flavor. I would like to return and try something different sometime as the menu sounds very good. Our server was a bit pushy and visibly annoyed we were taking our time to pay our bill (enjoying conversation) even though there were plenty of other tables open.

Food was great as always, but was disappointed to be seated outside on a chilly late evening. Sort of defeats the purpose of making reservations, as numerous walk up got the same seating. The heating the put out there just doesn't do the trick this time of year. If this is their seating policy, then there should be some indication of this on OpenTable.

The food was really great; the environment was great. The service wasn't so great. The waiter was really disorganized and they charged our cards to the wrong table. We brought it up to the manager and he took 0 responsibility. We didn't spend a whole lot on food this time, so maybe that's why, but now I'm less likely to come there again with a big group and spend more. Who is to say that the group with a $100 check won't have a bigger check next time? It's like that scene in Pretty Woman: "Big Mistake!"

Tammy was amazing!!! Request this waitress and you won’t be disappointed. Skip the octopus. Bread and olives rock! Diavolo and deconstructed cannoli are not to be missed. Bartender must live in space because drinks were out of this world. Tangiers, espresso martini, Bellini flight and Tito’s mule are just a few of the amazing creations!

I booked a reservation thru Open Table in advance. The valet parker was no where to be found at arrival which isn't Nebo's fault, but when your car is blocking a traffic lane on a very busy street, it seems there should be two attendants. Once inside, the wait was less than 5 minutes. There were three of us and one chair at the table was a metal chair. It was without a doubt the most uncomfortable chair I have ever, ever sat in, at all the many, many restaurants I've eaten at in my 50+ years. It made the dining experience almost excruciating, though I didn't want my son and niece to feel bad so I toughed it out. Horrible, horrible, horrible. The salad and the entrees needed salt and an offer of parm cheese would have been nice. It was very noisy on a busy Thursday night. The food was fresh, hot and well-made, but a bit bland (salt and/or parm would have solved that one). I might try it again, because they offer many gluten-free options.

The food was very good. My only complaint was the people at the table next to us were excessively loud. I think the manager should have come over and spoken to them about it. I had to shout over them so that my friend could hear me. My reservations were 5:30 p.m., so I don't think their noise level was appropriate for that time of day. I noticed TOO LOUD was not an option for the Noise Level. It should be added. Thank you.

The interior is fabulous and very industrial looking. The noise level is pretty high though so if you are on a business lunch suggest a table away from the crowd as it is hard to hear someone across the table from you.

I had the Milan sandwich. Chicken was tough and had to eat the sandwich with a fork and knife.

Yes - this is a five star. We dined here last night and loved every bit of it. We made a reservation, which I'd recommend as the place was filled up from 730-930pm.
Every effort has clearly been made with the restaurant's aesthetics. The high brick ceilings, the steel supports, the cleanliness and newness of the restaurant is throughout.
When you go for Italian in Boston, you expect to be cramped. Not here, the restaurant is spacious. Big guys can finally feel like they are not on top of the people next to him.
Our waitress was exceptional. She was patient and sincere and offered many authentic recommendations with candor. Not easy to do on a busy Saturday night.
We ordered, mussels, calamari and Caesar salad for starters. The mussels were dense and flavorful and the perfect size for a starter. Calamari is calamari, but their's is light with just the right crunch. The Caesar was delicious and topped with a pile of white anchovies and Reggiano.

For entrees, we went with our server's recommendation of zucchini lasagna and scallops with lemon zest fettuccine. My wife referred to the fettuccine as the best she has ever had. Both dishes were plentiful and spot on.
The food was so good that we even ordered two pizzas to take home.
The Pallotta sisters take a lot of pride in their restaurant and it shows. They were both on sight and checking every table and greeting many guests and making everyone feel welcome. When an owner works the floor of any shop or restaurant it shows. This place is great and we will be back.
