    All of the food was so good, Caesar Salad, Antipasto Salad, Chicken Parm, Zuppa de Mare (excellent)! Katerina at the bar was the best. She even asked if we want to take our time or put in the order for our main meals. Very attentive, friendly.

    1.) The server never asked if there were any allergies at the table-that is standard operating procedure for any good restaurant. 2.) I ordered off the menu and asked for two items that came with my meal to be removed and they were delivered. That held up the other guests from starting their meals as they waited for mine to be replaced. 3.) We each ordered coffee refills and the server took our cups and return with coffee in those same cups-bad look! Either bring the pot to the table or start with clean sups!

    We sat at the beautiful large bar before dinner for a drink. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were seated for dinner and was greater by our waitress that literally never cracked a smile….I don’t think she wanted to be there. Everyone has a bad day so I’ll give her that. Calamari and meatballs were very good. Caesar salad was a bit watery, lacking flavor…..same for the arugala salad. My husband had veal Parmesan which I thought was delicious, he thought it was overcooked. I had rigatoni carbonara, I substituted linguini for the rigatoni. I found the pancetta very hard and was not totally thrilled with it. My son had chicken Parmesan and was very happy with it. My future daughter in law had the spicy lobster rigatoni and said some of it was very hot (temp wise) and some seemed cold. Will definitely give this place another try and look forward to trying out their deli next door.

    Nice environment and good service although not polished. Very loud and dark so my 50+ eyes struggled with the menu with very small font. Sort of frustrating. Everyone loved their meals. My risotto was a tad undercooked but overall a nice meal.

    I enjoy Neroli’s food- though two times in row on Sunday eves when requesting low cheese on eggplant- it arrived smothered in cheese. Is kitchen on automatic? Eggplant itself is thin and delicious. All the cheese comes off so not able to enjoy it as much. Service was quite slow yesterday. Also I believe I was overcharged for shrimp cocktail- $20 for 4 shrimp- I believe it should have been $4 per shrimp. Just saying. Julia Ragusa the performer was terrific and I will return for her. Thank you.

    We’ve been to Neroli’s three times and enjoy it every time. I tried different dishes each time and loved all of them, particularly the Chicken Parm. The meatballs and mozzarella appetizers are delicious too. Our server last night was Ivan and he was fantastic!!! I highly recommend an evening out at Neroli’s!

    The food and service was great! We had chicken Parm-Chicken -chicken on the brick-Chicken broccoli and ziti -the service was great-my only complaint was the noise level-but the restaurant was very busy-so that's unavoidable. The deserts were great-and it was a birthday for my son and his chocolate cake was amazing.

    The food was fantastic. Met the Chef which is a rarity these days. Menu takes typical Italian fare and elevates it. Crowded dining room on a Sunday night but noise was not an issue. Drinks were on point. Varied wine/beer menu. Wait staff was attentive but did not rush. Ordered a dessert that was spectacular. Tirimasu was light and airy. So many other options I want to go back and try. They have a private function room and high tops at the bar. I also heard brunch was good and there is outdoor dining when the weather gets nicer.

    It reminded me of an old night club or dinner club. Food was very good as we were seated in a nice half round pleated booth. Large vases of flowers and a beautiful large bar. It was Sunday night and at 6 pm a singer came out and walked around the restaurant singing old songs by Tony Bennet, Frank Sinatra and others. we had a great time.

    Service was exceptional! Fried calamari app was solid. Martinis were amazing but a bit pricey. The Pork Osso Bucco was fabulous! The catch of the day was a cod loin on mashed parsnips - fresh but needed more seasoning. Will definitely be back. Dominick was an excellent waiter. Need to save room to try dessert next time.

    I made a reservation thru Open Table a week prior for a Saturday night birthday at 7:30pm, 4 people ,requested n a table or booth, just not a high top table. We arrived an hour early to have a couple drinks at the bar. Around 7:25pm I let the hostess know we were there and she told me she did not have the reservation and - I showed her my confirmation- she said could seat us at a high top in the bar area, I said no, we will wait for a table and would be at the bar ..the bartender was trying to push us to eat at the bar but as you can imagine, this was not a conducive setup to visit with friends and celebrate a birthday. After a half hour and people coming and going, I had to remind them we were waiting and we finally got a table. This is not the attention I would expect for spending about $600 total between bar and dinner ..we did not even have desert at this point as we were pushing toward 9:30pm and felt rushed. Food was good but underwhelmed by the service that I expected for this caliber of restaurant. No apologies or acknowledgment for the inconvenience, just that Open Table is not reliable.

    It was a Tuesday evening but the only quiet corner was high top seating which was most uncomfortable. The service was a bit slow, though Bently never left us for long. The high point was the excellent food. The perfectly grilled scallops paired beautifully with the risotto, asparagus and mushrooms. The fresh hand made pasta held an abundance of vongole in an excellent wine sauce. Although the food was stellar, we'll probably not return because of the party atmosphere.

    seated 15 min late for a 715, high top stools have no place for your feet if your short your legs dangle, food menu sounds better then it tastes Caprese salad was made with supermarket tomatoes and packaged mozzarella, not good, meat balls were good I had a bourban drink and they use a big round ice cube with if you took it out you are lucky if you 1" of alcohol
