“Still a great pizza place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

We visited Nello's, Ahwatukee two Fridays in a row. It's been awhile although we've visited many times over the past ten years. This Nello's location, as all are independently owned and have varied menus, features my favorite pie - the portabella-arugula-shaved parmesan on thin crust. Great thin chewy-crispy crust and a very original topping flavor combo.
Also ordered a standard combo on original crust to go, again a very good crust and quality topping. A nice happy hour with $3 local and regional microbrews pints and a decent selection of $2 off wine by the glass. The vibe of Nello's Ahwatukee is friendly, local, and authentic. We enjoyed great service on both recent visits. Only noticeable change is slight adjustment downward in some ingredients, still great but not outstanding. We understand the balance of economic downturn/inflation/price point of food for small family businesses, so this will not stop us from returning and recommending Nello's.

“Delish Neighborhood Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

If you're craving a wood fired pizza in your local neighborhood hit up Nellos in Ahwatukee . It's a friendly atmosphere where you're welcomed like family with great beers on tap. Try the Quattro Formaggio wood fired pizza!

“Good Food - Easy Going Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Looking for good Italian and pizza restaurant with a comfortable atmosphere - Nello's (multiple Phoenix locations) can be that place. The food is very good - we especially like thin crust pizza with a Caesar salad. Lots of seating that can accommodate larger groups, and it is kid friendly. Service is good, so Nello's can be a place for a quick meal in a busy day.

“Nellos in Tempe”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2008

The Tempe location was dirty, had poor service, and the food was just not good. The pesto penne and the margarita pizza did not live up to expectations. I personally would never go back.
