The service was great! Small place inside and tucked away a little. Food was very good and even the kids liked it.

Not my first visit. If you eat here and live in state, it won't be yours either. I drove half way across the state. It is, that worthy of travel. It was my wife's first visit. A family home atmosphere was how she described it. Simply delicious was her description. I agree, the ingredients are top notch and prepared perfectly.... More

I organized a family birthday party of 20 for my 84 year old mother here. They did accommodate us with only 3 days notice and the chef was kind enough to prepare a dish the birthday girl wanted that was not on the menu. The chef is the only reason I give this place 2 stars. While booking - I... More

We had a Restaurant.com coupon ($25 off on a bill of $50 or more). Regardless, we were treated well - attentive service and large portions of carefully prepared food. We ordered two appetizers (antipasto and calamari) as well as two dinners (veal and salmon) which came with salads and sides. All were tasty - and so were the leftovers, which... More

I regularly eat lunch here and can tell you they make the best soup I've ever had. Just always amazing. I also love their grilled shrimp salad with gorgonzola dressing. My husband and I also enjoy their dinners and desserts. Just a reliably heavenly meal every time.

We go to Nu Nu's all the time - for date nights, for nights out with friends, whatever the occasion! This is a very quaint little restaurant, with traditional Italian food. I am Italian myself and I am the biggest critic of Italian restaurants. It is a family owned place and the owner walks around to check in with you... More

Arrived for dinner after an overseas business trip and looking forward to a good dinner. We were seated quickly but then ignored until we flagged down a server. At that point, the restaurant was only about 2/3 full. Then we ordered a tasty veggie antipasto, and main courses. I had a special, pasta with beets and a soft cheese and... More

Anytime we dine at Nu Nu's we are not disappointed. The food is fresh and prepared in true Sicilian fashion. Another example of fine cuisine from children of immigrants.

I have eaten here a few times. Always good food and service at a reasonable price and you can also BYOB with a modest corkage charge. Meals served up reasonable quickly by a smiling waitress.

Renovated from an old carriage house NuNu's is a restaurant right off of the Green in the heart of Colchester. The food is upscale and delicious using clean ingredients. (Clean = as toxin-free as they can source) The owner, a wonderful old man with grandfatherly grace and manners might stop in and ask each table if they've enjoyed their meal... More
