Nello's is a neighborhood restaurant with customers who have gone there for years. The food is very average. We began going there about 15 years ago and loved it, but the past few times we went the food was a little on the heavy side...More

Had items from Nello's for a holiday party. Meat lasagna, Chix Cacc and Chix Ziti Broccoli. All were good tasting but the Chix Ziti dish seemed very dry (needed more white sauce)... otherwise, enjoyed them

I'm not sure what all the bad reviews are about. I've eaten here a few times and I've really enjoyed the food every time. I really like their tomato sauce, and the veal parmesan is very tasty. Not too expensive either.
