We can always count on Nello's for a great pizza! The service was fine, but our server forgot the turkey on our salad. It was quickly fixed. The garlic bread with cheese and tomatoes, sadly had no basil on it. Even with a couple of minor glitches, this is our favorite go-to place for pizza while in the valley.

I've eaten at all of the Nello's in the valley and some that no longer exist. Though the food is good, this one doesn't really compare to the others. The Pizza is pretty good but when it comes to other dishes the word bland fits as the best description. For examples, another Nello's makes their own croutons from left over... More

This place was featured on a show about best pizza places in Phoenix. My husband had been there a few times when he was younger and we thought we would take a walk down memory lane. Wish I hadn't. For starters, I really dislike unfriendly servers. Being waited on by staff with no personality or no friendly disposition, automatically puts... More

I love going to Nello's. They have the best pizza. It is thick and delicious. I always get the garlic bread with tomato first and then a small pizza with basil and tomato. It is the best tasting, very filling but I usually have some to take home. The price is right also and servers and very friendly. I have... More

First of all, when you search TA for Nello's Pizza in Tempe, nothing comes up but all the other Nello's show up! I suspect the reason for this is that the Tempe location has suffered so much that they don't want the bad reviews. It has a good reputation but at this point, that reputation is quite old. Check out... More

Nello's is a long-standing Tempe tradition, locally owned and delicious. Service is always friendly and the pizza can't be beat!

My sister and I had the marinara sauce on pasta and did not like it at all. You say, what could anyone do wrong with a sauce, well, the onions were not cooked through or the chunks of celery. (they were huge pieces) We thought it very odd. The salads had no green lettuce. Tasteless. My husband liked the pizza... More

This is a fun place to eat. It's a well thought out bar restaurant combo. Good variety of libation and pizza. Takeout is also worth the cardboard box meal. We use it often at my work. I'm no stranger to Nello's.

Always good food. A little pricier then their competition but well worth the money.. The salads are huge and a meal in themselves. The pizza crust is biscuity and good. Limited pasta selections but they're good..
