Not very crowded when I got there, so it was very quiet. Service was excellent, and the food came out pretty quickly. The wait staff was very attentive and professional.

We love Nocello- it is our "go to" restaurant in midtown. The menu is extensive-pasta, fish, and meat. The food and service are quite good. Plus its a good value.

The food and service was excellent. When we said we were sharing the salad, put each half on separate plates. We will definitely go back.

Just great! Had a perfect meal the other night. Pappardelle with lamb ragu, buffala mozzarella with tomatoes and then sea bass, simply prepared and perfectly done. They also have a very nice wine list with good wines at reasonable prices.

The restaurant was super clean, the reception of our family was warm and friendly, the food was fresh, had awesome flavor and was prepared to our individual wants and desires. From the mouth watering appetizers, to the personalized entrees right through to the desserts that left us wanting the experience to not end, this was a great place for a date night, family dinner ( us :) ), or a random I want some truly authentic Italian fare, this is truly a gem of NYC.

A little off with the food this time around unfortunately. Nice owners but that doesn't make the food magically better. A big disappointment but I'm sure they will rebound.

The food was excellent, presented beautifully and the portions were generous. The host was also very gracious and pleasant. My only disappointment was in the service. Four different servers asked us if we heard the specials within a couple minutes of each other. It seemed very disjointed... as if they didn't have specific assignments or didn't communicate with each other. I certainly would go here again but they need to step it up on their service for sure.

Nocello is a true find, if you are looking for a restaurant with delicious food, attentive service, and quiet ambiance in the theatre district. All of these are hard to come by in this busy area, especially on a Saturday night. This was our second time at the restaurant and no doubt we will return often.

Congratulations to all for a great dining experience.

We loved the fact that we were seated immediately ( even if our full party was not there) and asked if we were seeing a show ( for time constraints). The waitstaff was attentive, food fabulous, and the 4 of us remarked that the acoustics were comfortable and enabled soft conversation!

My favorite New York City restaurant. Great menu, awesome specials and complimentary wine list. Their lobster and shrimp special is outstanding. Service is excellent with friendly servers. We love Nocello’s after the Philharmonic or before the theater. A great family restaurant.

We've been to Nocello many time and we've never been disappointed. This time, we were delayed and arrived 40 minutes after our reservation time. They accommodated us and got us fed and out the door in time. My only regret is that we didn't have a chance to relax over coffee and dessert at one of my favorite restaurants.

Food was good but VERY salty. I had to ask multiple times for water. Service was slow and inconsistent. There appeared to be several “regulars” there with whom the staff spent a lot of time. There are so many similar restaurants in the area and this one did not stand out as superior

We were a party of four for dinner before the theater. We were seated promptly, everyone received menus and a wine list for the table. The waiter offered to help us chose a wine and we followed his suggestion, which was delightful. The courses were brought in a timely manner and everything was delicious. All at the restaurant were pleasant and helpful. we planto return the next time we are in the neighborhood.
