Nello's had been recommended to us, so we stopped by, without big expectations. We were surprised of the huge portions given to us! Even though we could not eat in ( covid restrictions), when arriving home, we were very pleased to find a warm and...extremely tastefull meal in our trays! Delicious Feast!😀More

We had friends come to town and thought we would take them to Nello's. We were seated and given menus. The room was to dark to even read the menu's so we asked that they turn up the lights so we could see the menu's....The young boy said "NO" they are set like that. It was embarrasing that we had to use the flashlight on our phone to read the menu.More

Nello's has great food, customer service, and setting. Their family style options are a great way to share and sample their many delicacies and provide that family atmosphere. We love to have the mussels as a starter when we are there and the portion is...large enough for 4 people to share (2 adult and 2 teenage boys).More

Love this restaurant!! Always amazed with the very generous portions of delicious Italian cuisine. Great value and we never leave without lunch or dinner for the next day (or two!) The severs are attentive and very friendly. We’ve been dining at Nellos for many years,...back when it was originally “Il Pasticcio” and Nello would cook up a feast. Tony is carrying on the tradition! Never disappointed!More

We ordered the Pollo Alla Panna. It came with a salad and a couple of florets of broccoli on the mushroom cream sauce. The vegetable portion of this entrée was sorely lacking. For dessert two choices: Tiramisu or Crème Brûlée. Those are tired options. What...about some selection of gelato flavours or some assortment of pies? If you don't mind a convivial family atmosphere then Nello's is fine, but if you are seeking a romantic evening out then this is not the venue. The tables are too close together and noise is ever present.More

It was lovely as always. Delicious food, generous helpings. They were all impressed! I am sure each one of them will be back. I have to mention just the one disappointment of the night. When I made reservations, I asked that we be seated in...Kim's serving area. I was told she usually works Mondays and that she was pretty sure we could be accommodated. I told my mgr and the rest of the staff in case they got there before me, that the reservation was under my name. When I got there ( 2 of my staff was there before me) , we were not in Kim's section. The restaurant was not busy at all so I am unsure why this happened. Kim is one of the finest servers I have ever seen and she is part of the enjoyment of going to Nellos.More

Beautiful decor and atmosphere, awesome server and delish food! We had been a few years ago and everything has improved! The kids are begging to go back, which says a lot since my son does not like tomato sauce. He can't get enough of Nello's!...Service was fast, we didn't wait longer than 15 minutes which was excellent since I had two hangry kids with me. An abundance of warm bread, large servings, appetizing presentation and fresh ingredients left a strong impression. I often need to salt my food and I didn't feel the need to reach for any, which meant that it was superbly flavoured. We ended with the Tiramisu, the best in the city area by far. Will be going back!More

Party of 8 with a reservation, we had bruschetta as apps and it was delicious, everyone enjoyed their Massive Serving meals of pasta! Server was great, very friendly, only complaint was that we were literally rushed out the door at the end because of “overbooking”

We had been to Nello's several years ago and loved it. I suggested that we try it again for my birthday. I read reviews and they were mixed. I was hesitant to go, but we went anyway. Sorely disappointed, Service was fine...not anything to write...home about. Calamari was recommended on the reviews, so we ordered it. It was excellent. The rest was awful! I ordered the tenderloin with caesar salad. The lettuce was wilted like it had been sitting for hours. There was way too much dressing on it...and I like lots of dressing...and it was much to salty! My tenderloin was medium as requested, however, the top side was crusted/burnt and the bottom didn't touch the grill! Looks like they forgot to flip it. My husband had stuffed peppers and house salad which was fine...how can you go wrong on that. The only thing going for this restaurant anymore is the portion size, which is over the top too much. I'd rather pay for an excellent meal than just quantity. Way too pricey for the quality of meal. Probably won't come back unless the reviews become consistent and improved. There's lots of room for improvement.More

Response from Shirley N | Reviewed this property |
The appetizer was in the $18 price range, totally worth it. The huge pasta dish which easily could be shared by two was over $30 and not worth it.
