Excellent food and Impeccable service. All in a beautiful atmosphere.
The service was outstanding and they really made my wife’s birthday feel like a special occasion!
Food is delicious & absolutely Best pasta! Wonderful management as well.
Manager was extremely rude to us. We were celebrating my wife’s pregnancy and I brought a special wine for me to drink. I asked if they would charge corkage fee and he said yes, US$45. We said ok, sat down on the table and then minutes later he came back and said that we no longer could open our wine bottle, because the rules had changed. I insisted and then he went to check with someone inside. Came back and said “ok, but now it will cost US$90”. Really?? Is this how they treat clients? I told him we should try to sort this out, my wife was pregnant and it was a special occasion for me. He then said “if she is pregnant, you should not have brought wine”. Really?????? We just stood up and left after this. We won’t come back ever again.
The menu is very pricey and in my opinion the food was not really worth it. The seating was outside so you are really close to a building that is for lease. Compared to other Italian restaurants in the area (food and seating) I was not impressed. I had noticed they would have live music which I was excited for however, it was there during our dinner.
Had a wonderful indoor experience. Our server and the staff was amazing
The rudest people and the worse service
Great place for a first date! The pasta was excellent, the drink menu was great and the desert was to die for! My date was impressed :) Also, the service was amazing, very attentive.
Ridiculously overpriced. Food good but not worth the price. Mark up on wines is 1000%.
Nello is always terrific.
Excellent service, charming staff. A great Italian restaurant even while coping with COVID constrictions.
Beautiful experience to celebrate our wedding anniversary along with an unexpected, but most welcomed live performer ❤️
They stopped serving before the reservation . It was explained that because of the rules in NYC restaurants stopped serving at 10 pm.
Excellent service. The food was spectacular. Even the melon and prosciutto was perfect. A beautiful evening.
This UES legend never disappoints. Sure, it's very expensive, but there is nothing like it and you invariably see a celebrity or two. Perfect for leisurely dining and people watching. (Think of it as dinner and a show.) The food is lovely and the service is consistently superb.
Our favorite place to dine in NYC. So happy they were able to make up for the loss of space inside by utilizing a large part of the sidewalk. They did an awesome job as always.
A beautiful restaurant with fantastic food, a wonderful treat for a really good night out, loved it
The food at Nello is excellent, fresh and seasonal. Wine list is excellent
Very over priced!! Nice looking place, good service but the food is just too high in price for the quality. Never going back
Nello’s sidewalk service was by NYC lock-down terms all OK. As expected the food/service was not up to incident standards but they did what they could. Expensive yes/ worth the price ?
one of my most memorable dining experiences during covid 19. so much fun being on madison avenue with great food, great service and seeing sky. Nello did not disappoint.
They literally were closed when we got there and we were there 10 minutes before our reservation time
The absolute worst. I don't know how they stay in business
the prices are more than any restaurant & i've been to many
look up the prices on their menu.
There a at least six restaurant's in the area like La Charlot that the food is better the prices are %25-30 lower & has much more of a friendlier attitude
I live on the west side & La Charlot is my go to restaurant
I was have lunch with my sister everything was great but when I tell waiter to order dessert for my sister birthday after that they serve without candle or sing or something can make my sister surprise no event day Happy birthday 😭
When it comes to food and ambiance, Nello is better off competing with Olive Garden than with Michelin star restaurants.
Delicious food, excellent service. Very pricey.
Lovely eating al fresco
Great food & great service!
Thank you Giancarlo- we’ll be back!
Always great food and service at Nello. We love the whole experience. We will definitely be back.
Food is delicious & manager maitre d is wonderful!
Great atmosphere at the outdoor seating. Absolutely perfect martini! Very attentive and friendly service. The salmon was delicious!
Sitting outside was wonderful!
Day was pretty, food was delicious... nice service.
Their food quality just keeps getting worse for the same price. They make great drinks (overpriced but good.)
Desultory service; way overpriced eg. $12.50 cappuccino!
It was an inattentive staff. Prices are ( I know it’s Madison Ave.) but extremely high for the food and portions.
Even though we had to sit outside because of Covid, everything was wonderful.
Love the place best service , best food , fun place ,
Always amazing food, swrvice and atmosphere.
This was our first visit to Nello and we absolutely loved the place. The food and conversations with the staff made our day!
