Pizza Christina was really good as was the Polenta con Scampi. The polpettine (meatball) appetizer was kind of flat on flavor and the Rigatoni All' Amatriciana was on the under-seasoned side - it had no spiciness & could have used some salt.

Skip the bruschetta agile e olio: over charred and definitely needed a heavier application of olive oil.

I really wish I could remember our server's name - she was the one fantastic part of the whole experience. She makes the thought of giving Nebo a second shot more appealing.

We were so impressed with Nebo. They had a completely separate, expansive gluten free menu which was amazing. Our server was also very knowledgeable about the gluten free options. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was wonderful. We will absolutely be back!

Saw this restaurant profiled on a regional New England dining show and wanted to try it. Glad we did. Server was personable, helpful and knowledgeable offering recommendations. Meals were excellent, rigatoni dish and a shrimp scampi dish. Terrific flavor & nice and hot (temp). Pastas were house-made. Spumoni Sundae for dessert is a must try! Excellent dining experience, recommended, will return.

Nebo is a reasonable place for dinner. This is near the financial district so it has more of a corporate culture. You can generally get a reservation the day before (friday for saturday) which is rare in Boston. The service is top notch. The staff really wants you to enjoy your visit. Prices are reasonable. Menu variety is good. Stay away from the crazy stuff like Bobby Flay's (? really) awful zucchini lasagna. The calamari appetizer is the best. Very tender on the inside, crispy on the outside, larger rings reduce the ratio of breading to calamari and it's a winner. The veal was an excellent presentation and nicely done. Several exciting flatbread pizzas. We had the prosciutto and fig. The let down was the fig jam instead of a nicer fig preparation.

My husband and I think this is hands down the best Italian food in all of Boston! (My husband tends to be a harsh critic - he’s Italian and he is an excellent cook!)
Another plus of NEBO, one does not have to navigate the close quarters and big crowds in the North End! You must try the ZUCCHINI LASAGNA “Bobby Flay” and the VEAL MILANESE. We can’t help ourselves, we get it almost every time! The service is first rate and you are treated like a valued guest, not a number. There is a dedicated gluten-free menu that is very close to the regular menu - Ie: prepared with the same extra special care as non-GF items, and equally as tasty! It’s one of those restaurants that you remember the tastes and experience for a long time.

Really disappointing and terrible experience. Food was bland and super overpriced for what you get. Service was some of the worst I have ever experienced. Go elsewhere. Boston has so many other great Italian restaurants. Would not be surprised if this places closes its doors.

I was there for a business dinner and was given a window table away from the bar. We had a very acceptable business level conversation. The waiter was very patient and accommodating to and with us and gave us time to talk and order food and drinks at our pace. The food was so good - app, salad, entre and desert.
I will definitely go back and highly recommend Nebo.

We wanted an evening meal without having to walk to the North End. This was right next to the intercontinental hotel and we noticed it on our walk back. We made a reservation and it was lovely. We ate outside and yes there was the traffic noise but it felt safer. We even had a rainbow! The salads were great and the caprese pizza we shared was sensational. Our server was attentive and the food arrived promptly but we never felt rushed.

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed are dinner out at Nebo last night. Our server Michael was spectacular, very attentive and knowing we were heading out to a concert after, he kept us closely apprised of when our food would come out. The pizza we ordered was delicious and we both felt good value for what we got in terms of food/drink. The noise level increased during our time there, but that was merely the natural result of boisterous diners enjoying themselves around us, but regardless still easy to maintain a conversation. Will definitely return!
