I'd walk a mile for the Old World Salad

Even our grandchildren, who dislike salad, love the Old World Salad. And, the Pizza is great also. There are a lot of fine pizza restaurants in Phoenix. This is one of them, but no one can touch the Old World Salad.

Found this place by accident. Right next door to a great little yarn shop and across the parking lot from the PGA Superstore. The pizza was GREAT!! and that's a miracle from a Sicilian/NYC guy who makes all his own Italian food (I never eat tomato sauce in an Italian restaurant because they always mess it up - read Americanize)....

Had the Spinach Pie. So good! We definitely recommend it! The only drawback to this restaurant is that they do not deliver.

We dropped in Nellos for lunch and shared a combination, thin crust pizza. Great pizza, just the way we like it. Good, friendly service. These folks do it right!

I saw this place on the front of the restaurant it showed Pizza Salad Pasta and really felt like some pasta and wine so I went in and took a look at the menu. The nice gentleman at the front helped me to a menu and then to a booth. I met my server (Jen) who I ordered from. She... More

We ordered a deep-dish Numero Uno and a thin-crust BBQ Chicken, both well-done. The well-done BBQ Chicken looked amazing and tasted the same as it looked. I bit into the deep-dish crust -- crunchy-delicious, like French bread. I got one of the servers to explain to me how they get it so good. (I'll let him explain.) VG decor and... More

We watched an episode of Check Please, AZ and one of the restaurants they reviewed was Nello's. I'm guessing it was an old episode as one of the pizzas they tried isn't on the menu anymore. But we had a pan Deluxe Combo and it was poor. The crust is good but we were shocked at the lack of toppings.... More

Jefferson S, Owner at Nello's Pizza, responded to this review

We are so sorry you felt that way about our pizza. There should always be an abundance of toppings on our pizza. I am not sure what may have gone wrong (or what your expectations may be), but we always have our staff "load" the pizzas with toppings, especially the Deluxe Combo. Most of the items we put on a...

I don't quite understand all the "Excellent" rating for Nello's because I found the pizza to be pretty average. Service was very good, prices were about what one would expect, but their traditional deluxe condo pizza lacked the nice tomato flavors and spices I was looking for. I'm not a pizza snob but I have had excellent "pies" in both... More

Found this place purely on chance. Was in the shopping center and saw the pizza sign and thought why not? What a great find. The pizza is super. They offer some things you're familiar with and some interesting twists on pizza. They offer other things but the pizza seems to be THE favorite. The atmosphere is nice, nothing overly fancy...jeans... More

If you want food that's quick, well-priced and good value, Nello's works. The pizza was actually quite good and my salad for $11 was massive. Pretty good for a chain.
