Party of four. Reasonably priced, (prices are on website), food was excellent and portions were just right. Not a big place and the result is a relaxed and quiet dinner, hard to find in NYC. Service was good and no complaints at all. I'm from Brooklyn and I know good Italian food. Would go back in a New York minute.

I don't even eat lamb but i tried this one because it looked awesome and smelled great on my wife's plate. I ended up ordering another one for myself and it became my main dish ever since. Aside from the line of people out of the door waiting to be seated on theater nights, no complains here...Weekly visit with the... More

Small, private, family owned restaurant. Excellent service, interesting menu selections. The parmesan-crusted lamp chops were a little dry, but everything else was super.

Started out wonderful with service and then went downhill after a very large party came in and we seemed to become ghosts. Food, Price and Decor were very good in this small restaurant and had the service been consistent or if they had planned more help that night, I would definitely rate it higher.

We headed to New York City for Thanksgiving week and needed a restaurant to spend the holiday. We didn't want the traditional thanksgiving dinner, so we decided to give an Italian restaurant a chance. We took a look at their thanksgiving offerings and noticed that aside from the traditional trimmings, they had other offerings. Nocello offered for the night a... More

I've enjoyed dining with Constantino and Marinella for many years and I just had another fabulous dinner there. It's a great place pre-show but it gets busy, after 7:30 it's a diners delight. Great fresh fish menu, wonderful daily specials, the lentil soup was a warm comfort on a chilly NYC evening. Highly recommended.

We were told since we didn't have a reservation that we got the option of sitting at the two worst tables in the restaurant. We ask if we can sit at the bar the bartender said "no not yet". We wanted to eat there and were prepared to spend some money on a nice dinner. Pathletic people and service standards.
