The wine was great as the list is extensive. The food was delicious - had pasta and it was excellent. The waiter was great. Will return when I am back in New York City.

I recently ate dinner at Nocello in New York City. The restaurant was booked by friends who live in the area and there were ten of us. Service was immediate and excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had Gazpacho soup to start. Very flavourful and perfectly chilled. My main was chicken stuffed with raisins and ricotta and topped with a... More

One of the best Italian restaurants in the theater district. Yes, a little further away from most theaters but I have always found the food excellent. Very well prepared. So much better than restaurants closer to the theater. The only negative aspect is the disappointing service. Brusque and cold. Not inefficient but extremely aloof.

This wanna be Italian restaurant has very poor service and a not so good Italian menú. I will not recomend Nocello to anyone specially when thera are much better Italian ones in the Broadway área.

Had not read any reviews, friends booked for us, so having read them now, I just don't see how anyone can rate this good. The restaurant is tired yes, which is fine if it can deliver, service is average for a mid range Italian, wine list uninspiring. The food on the menu is bulk standard fare you would expect to...

On several occasions when I have been in NYC, I end up being the one to suggest Nocello's for a great meal and intimate setting. The waiters are helpful, the ambience terrific. My friends always say "I'm glad you brought us here. I'll definitely come back." And did I tell you how fantastic the food is?!!

My husband and I recently saw a matinee and wanted to dine afterward at a restaurant close to Studio 54. We found an excellent choice with Nocello. We had a quiet table and service was prompt and courteous. My husband ordered from the prix fixe menu and enjoyed a fresh tuna dish after a salad. I ordered from the a... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant and made reservations for us! Our bottle of wine was lovely! The rustic crusty bread and olives appetizers started our meal just right! I have to say my house salad and the house dressing was some of the best I have ever had! My friends bruschetta looked good too! For my main... More

We had theater tickets and it was raining, so we chose this place as much for location as anything. Service was great (a plus for theater goers) but ambiance was dark and dingy, and the food was bland and lifeless, with a very poor wine selection. Next time we will find someplace else, I am sorry to say.

We needed a semi-private room to celebrate our son's graduation from Columbia. We contacted many restaurants until we found Nocello. They were professional and easy to work with. They helped us on every detail. They handled some serious food allergies with ease. The restaurant is beautiful. The back room where we had two large tables was elegant, cool and comfortable... More
