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.

We like to choose Nello's for Monday night dancing with the Tim Sullivan band but you can't get in because the same people in town reserve every week well In Advance, like the beginning of Summer and that is very unfair for the locals that live here and try to support our businesses! We reserved on a Friday night a... More

I wanted to mention this great little find in Pagosa Springs. We had lunch and were very pleased with the choices (specially prepared chicken breast and the other a chef salad). Large portions, cheerful waitress and good pricing. I highly recommend you stop by and give it a try!

We wanted a more upscale meal one evening and Nello's came through. The olive salad and lasagna bolognese were outstanding. Had nice wine list and great kids menu. The portions were large and could easily be shared by two adults.

We stopped here to eat after arriving in Pagosa Springs. the food was good, and they had live entertainment. Loved sitting and listening to the guys sing Rocky Mt. High by John Denver. We came back to eat 2 more times while in the area.

Ate there with my family -- 4 adults, 2 children, and 8 month old. The service was very good and prompt. The food was excellent and hot. The decor was interesting and pleasant with bit of southwestern theme. I was concerned it was a coffee shop. It is a full restaurant with coffee bar and a full bar. Music was... More

Since I live in Pagosa Springs, I've been to Nello's several times. Sometimes the food is great and sometimes it's just mediocre. I've loved there lasagna and have ordered it several times but the last time I ordered it, it was drowned in sauce and just not very good. Maybe they have changed chefs. Monday nights they typically have music... More

We ate at Nello's on a Friday night in May and it wasn't that crowded. Our server was very attentive and helpful. The food was prepared well and was delicious. The atmosphere is Warmest regards, and comfortable. Best of all was the music provided by a guitarist/singer who sang a lot of 1960/70's music (Neal Diamond, Cat Stevens, etc.) which... More
