Great food, friendly staff!

We were recommended to go here and we are glad we did so! What fantastic local food, the house wine is fantastic, the peppered beef stew was superb! Go try out this little gem in San Casciano.

My husband and I visited Nello based on our host's recommendation. Only one of the waiters spoke English, but was willing to go above and beyond in helping to explain the non-English menu. We stuck to the primi and had three delicious pasta dishes (a ravioli special, a pesto twisty pasta, and a fantastic ragu dish). The house red wine... More

A nice little restaurant with a balanced, good selection of foods (I always get suspicious if there are more dishes than chairs in a restaurant). The first plate was a cold Tuscany country platter with delish jam-like sauces. Entree was the grilled beef which was tender and crusty-salty. Just the way I like it. My wife went for the breaded-fried... More

Not the warmest welcome on entering the restaurant. Not good to just stare almost as if we may have been their very first customers. Once warmed up the waiter was very nice. Food however lacked taste for me. The minced chicken lasagne had zero taste and looked unusual as though the pieces had be put on separately because not baked... More

The restaurant doesn't have an English menu. But the staff explained the menu to us. The beef with rucola is great!

We traveled all over Italy. We went from the top to the bottom and this was the best food we ate in the country. It's a ways outside florence which is where we stayed and I'm so glad we did because we would have missed this place. I love it and plan to return one day!

We love to eat and to cook, and we found in Nello an excellent restaurant with the approach to food and fresh ingredients which we share and which other foodies will no doubt enjoy also. The dishes are simply prepared, true to traditional cuisine without being slavishly devoted to it. Ingredients were seasonal and fresh, everything prepared to order with... More

We last visited this restaurant 5 years ago and were very pleased to see the new decor has modernised and upgraded the establishment whilst still retaining some of its traditional Tuscan charm. Warm and friendly service on a quiet winter's evening. The house white wine was tasty, dry but not sharp and very good value. Fresh local produce was cooked... More
