I have been going to the various Nello's locations since I was a kid. The pizza that they have is really good. I love their pizza sauce and sausage especially. Their salads with house dressing is really good. If you are in the area and want a great lunch special with a personal pizza and salad it is hard to... More

My wife and I ordered a whole grain or whole wheat pizza with a thin crust. When they say thin, they mean it. It is a great way to accommodate all the great flavours of the toppings while minimizing the carbs. We had a 10" pizza and it was quite adequate for the two of us. In addition we ordered... More

I saw Nello's on Check Please, Arizona and decided to give it a try. We got there at 6pm on a Thursday and there were no spots in the lot so I had to park down the street. They had about 10 beers on tap, I had a Dos Equis. I got the garlic bread with mozzarella and tomato as... More

The Murphy Pizza here is our favorite. There are actual strips of cooked bacon on it. We recommend the original crust on any of their pizzas.

A favorite restaurant for many East Valley residents — Nello’s has been serving by far the best pizza — and it's not just the pizza, it's the whole menu. Salads with famous house dressing, Italian spaghetti and pasta, garlic bread with Italian “Margarita” pizza topping, sandwiches, oven baked barbecue chicken wings, and a selection of wine and craft beer.

You can get thin sliced pizza here, or even pasta. but why bother? This is the best spot in the Valley for deep dish, it's available in sizes from 7 to 16 inches and there are dozens of combinations to try. You simply can't go wrong.

Ordered the margherita, it was delicious. Great sauce and a delicious Chicago style crust. Will definitely be back.

I love Nello's pizza place. I go with a bunch of friends almost every week for lunch. The pizza is fantastic, the service is fast, the price is reasonable. We've never waited for a seat. Great variety of flavors and crusts (including wheat crust). Servers are helpful and polite. If you haven't had it, I'd heartily recommend it.

I'm on the search for the best pizza! The problem I have is I can't eat cheese since it gives me migraines. So, the crust, sauce and toppings have to be really good because the restaurant can't hide everything in the cheese. So far, Nello's pizza is by far the best! The sauce is really good. It's got great pizza... More
