Maybe if we had been there when there was music or something it would have been a little better. As it was there were only a few tables with other customers and we felt like we were sitting in a big warehouse type room without much ambiance. The food is on the expensive side and the pasta was ok at... More

I visited Nello's during the Holiday's while visiting Pagosa and the reviews seemed nice. The restaurant is quaint although hard to find in the strip mall near City Market. I ordered the Lasagne and I was disappointed to find that the inside was nuclear and the outside was kinda of rubbery. The cheese didn't look very fresh and the sauce... More

We stumbled upon this place that is a combination of a coffee bar, a Dennys, and an upscale restaurant. It's like it's not sure what it is, but we totally enjoyed it. The food was excellent, the two guys playing country music were talented, and the service was fast and professional, if not real smiley. I would go back often... More

We were there on a Friday night and pleasantly surprised with the acoustic guitar music. It was such a lovely background for our meal. We shared a small spinach salad which was perfect for sharing and my partner had a shrimp cocktail which she enjoyed and I relished the Ravioli trio appetizer. There were 2 each of 3 different, very... More

Wonderful, unusual find in a small, out-of-the-way, touristy town: good food, nice atmosphere, friendly service, occasional live music & dancing, lots of locals. Interesting mix of food / cuisines on the menu. Mostly comfort food, a lot of Italian, some good salads. Rarest of rare: a decent, full-pour glass of wine.This place is hidden in a strip mall next to... More

Our group of four had actually been looking for a different restaurant when we stumbled upon Nello's for lunch. It turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The interior atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable and there was a good variety on the menu. Each of our foursome had different meals and all of us liked what we had. Prices were... More

Nello's Bistro in Pagosa Springs, Co was recommended by a local. It was so good the first night, we went back the second nite. A local musician (s) played each night. Both were top notch. Excellent salads, Calamari, deserts, entrees. Great service and an overall pleasant evening.

Made a quick stop on our way to our hotel for a quick bite. Actually, we were running late and got the chicken wings to go. They were very good but pricey at $8 for 5 pcs. Service was great. We asked for something that could be done quickly because we had 15 mins. to get back on our motorcoach... More

This place hums with the locals on many nights of the week and is great for dancing. Great for lunch too with its nice patio.The food is pretty good but drinks can get pretty expensive so watch what you order. Daniella, the owner and her great staff try very hard and are very friendly.

Wow! What an unexpected pleasure to find such a quaint little bistro next to a City Market of all places. There was live music; however, the noise level was not overpowering as to not be able to carry a conversation. The menu was was not overwhelmingly large, but the food was fabulous.
