Nice Italian spot

Beautiful old house behind the town green. Ample free parking. Upon entering the owner exchanged pleasantries in Italian. There is a small retail area that sells cheeses, roasted peppers, olives, etc. Our party of eight was led upstairs to a comfortable, quiet spot. Donna, our hard-working... read more

My husband and I dine here frequently when we feel like having a nice evening out. The food is reliably good and the service friendly and efficient.

We went with family for sunday brunch, we had reservations, we were seated immediately. The brunch buffet was wonderful, it wasn't full of dishes that were just belly fillers!! The food was wonderful!!

Good food and service, but very noisy. I did like the fact that the owner was present, working in the kitchen, and stepped out to speak with each table about their dining pleasure, what they had, if it was prepared properly, and how it tasted. I also liked that it was a BYOB place that didn't charge you a corkage... More

Although a bit pricey the food here us delicious. They have an amazing Sunday brunch buffet and I love that they are not afraid to serve items like elk, ostrich or kangaroo on the menu. It's byob and every time I have been the owner/chef comes out to personally check on each table and thank the patrons. Very classy.

went for my wife's birthday and couldn't even carry on a conversation because the tables were sooooo close. I have to confess the food was excellent but a bit pricey.

I have been to Nu Nu's several times and never been disappointed. Excellent Italian dishes. The Veal Parm is my favorite, followed by the Pasta with Sunday Sauce (veal and pork simmered all day in the tomato base)The antipasto app will bring you to heaven. Italian cheeses, salami's, roasted red peppers and olives (brined right there!) You can't miss with... More

We had been out to dinner with one of our favorite couples for a couple of months because life has gotten in the way! Saturday was the day and we were lucky to get reservations for 7 pm. Neither my husband nor I had been here since they first opened at least 13 years ago only because we lived so... More

I have always loved dinner here, but the real magic is in the Sunday lunch buffet. From 12-3 on Sunday's, they host an all you can eat buffet. The food is phenomenal....Sicilian American home cooking. From muscles & clams to veal ragu, baked eggplant to spinach & polenta, Sicilian roasted chicken and sausage & potatos. My personal favorites are the... More

The sunday Italian buffet is the best deal in town. The food is delicious, served in small quanities so it is replaced frequently which keeps it hot and fresh. Diners can bring their own wine for a small corkage fee. The service is friendly. If you go for dinner be sure to try the hangar steak. It's amazing.
