“expensive and snobbish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Want to visit a place where Roman Abramovitch left 25 000$ on tips? Go to Nello and not be surprised with a service, the guys there are not very welcome if they don't feel that you can leave them at least 10% of the amount which Roman left em. The food is great but the service is not so lovely.

“Beware!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We should have known better - no menu at the front door. We asked for a wine
Iist which was refused so we ha no idea how much we were being charged for a glass of Pinot Grigio and a Barolo to accompany a Saltimbocca and a Fugato. The food was fine - 3 stars. - but a bill of $300 for the above and two pre - lunch drinks was farcical! Bullying culture, of both customers and underling staff. Not nice people! The regulars seemed to be people with lots of money and no interest in food for eating. A place to be seen but you will be ripped off! Don't go!

“Total scam”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

We were 9 friends having a short late night snack. The bill ended up being close to 1000$. The food was crap, the drinks were crap and the service was crap. Never again.
