I was staying with friends in the area who come here a LOT for breakfast and I can see why: I was NOT disappointed. Friendly wait staff, great prices and very tasty food (plentiful portions, too). I had the spinach omelet and the surprise to me was that it had feta cheese, which I adore. It was well cooked and... More

Lots of food choices. Service is great, food is nothing exceptional but good clean food. Good for a group get together and not too loud so you can have an enjoyable conversation with your dinner companions.

Everyone there was really nice and the service was good. I was pleasantly surprised that they actually used real cheese on my omelet not Kraft singles slices and they food was cooked just right. The only thing that got them marks off was the fruit I ordered was a little was ripe.

Visited Nello's family restaurant twice so far (breakfast and lunch) with my significant other and our friends. Service was excellent on both occasions, waitresses were very friendly, efficient and well mannered. Food was great. Pancakes, bacon, sausages, omlettes, greek salad with grilled chicken... everything was fresh and tasted homemade. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual. Staff act as they genuinely... More

Good service plus reasonable price and a large menu equals a very good family restaurant. The parking lot is a little difficult but it is well worth the effort.

Since I teach at the nearby community college I go here for breakfast and sometimes dinner prior to evening classes I am partial to their breakfasts, their pancakes are wonderful reminding me of my mom's, and the wait staff are efficient, friendly and you always get a coffee refill. This is a wonderful place for families, friends, or just by... More

There's something to be said for someone who takes great pride in his profession. Dino, the owner, personally oversees the menu in this delightful family style restaurant. His homemade Greek Salad Dressing is simply the best I've ever had! Portions are enormous and the staff is friendly and quick. Can be quite crowded on weekend mornings however, but you'll be...

If you want a great casual dining place, this is the place to go. Staff is always friendly. Food is almost always home made there. Awesome Greek salads and spinach pie.
