Best restaurant before a show at the Capitol

Great food. Absolutely love the gnocchi. Great drinks - recommend the Cosmo. Nice ambiance. We have dinner at 6:00 before an 8:00 show and have plenty of time for apps, dinner, and a couple drinks. Quick valet service also.

Do you appreciate craft cocktails, made by a bartender (formerly of Milk and Honey) who knows the chemistry, backstory and history of each drink and is super passionate about his work? Run, don't walk, to Nessa. Worship at the rail of Al's well stocked bar, and savor the best cocktails of your LIFE! Al will blow your mind! The food... More

Nessa is our go-to place for dinner with friends or a delicious dinner after a great movie. We have NEVER been disappointed and always feel welcome when we walk in. The Bruschetta is awesome and although everything on the menu is delicious, one of us almost always orders the rigatoni bolognese - it's the best we have ever had.

We stopped by Nessa with a tall order: get us in and out in 30 minutes so that we could make a movie. They succeeded beyond our expectations... Taking a seat at the bar, we were greeted warmly by the bartender, who assured us confidently that he would take care of us and have us on our way in time.... More

Four of us went to Nessa to have a great night out. First the good stuff. The servers were pleasant and attentive. We started at the bar ordering three Pinots and a beer. $55.00 for that. OK, NY Prices I said. Then the food. The pork chop I has was under cooked and under spiced. Bland with vinegar peppers on... More

We both got a half order of past and it was really good. Very fresh. Out waiter was friendly and helpful in decided on menu items. Will... More

This restaurant was such a let down. The service was among the worst we have had in a long time, the food was good at best.. I will say the meatballs were really wonderful and the calamari too. The Spaghetti Carbonara was not exucuted the authentic way and lacked flavor.

What a great variety of small plates, most notably the different varieties of meatballs and bruschetta! If you're starving, they have plenty of traditional entrees to choose from as well. Well made drinks from the bar, a friendly staff, and a lively but not too noisy environment make Nessa a really enjoyable experience.

I stopped at Nessa's recently - they have introduced live music to their 5 - 7 evening Nibble time, at least on Tuesdays. A talented young keyboardist, Simon Riker added an engaging mix of American Songbook Classics, jazz and a few classical pieces which turned a couple of cocktails into an exploration of the special Nessa Nibbles sampler list and...

Stopped in on Sunday at 5:15 for some appetizers and some wine. Nice wine selection and the appetizers were very good. Fried polenta cooked well, meatballs (big)in sauce, and mussels in broth were our choices. Each was $8 apiece and we did not eat dinner that night since that was plenty of food. We would definitely go back and we... More
