“Nice Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Six of us dined here on a Sun. night.. All were happy with their meals, which were Lasagna,
Paella, for $20, Sausage and peppers on pasta and the special of the night, which was Fish and Chips for $21 made with one Salmon filet and one Halibut filet, served with great fries and marinated vegetables, all served with soup or a green salad. Interesting salad dressings. We had Creamy Chianti which was wonderful. Wine specials also. This is a small place, but they take reservations, which is helpful. Service was good and friendly. .

“Good food but poor value and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious but portions were amazingly small. Plus they seemed to be very understaffed and made us and several other clients wait while empty tables were plainly visible. Dinner service was very peculiar with several couples that were seated after us getting their food before us.

“Okay Food and Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We came upon Nero's on the Monday night of our Spring Break. We tried five restaurants before this one, but all were closed, so we didn't have much of a choice. Though some of my food was great, others not so much. For example, the pizza crust was way too thick and the pizza itself burned. I ordered the lemonade and very early on realized it was packaged. How hard is it to squeeze a lemon, add a little sugar, and put it in a glass? Service was fine, but nothing to speak of.

“Good food and wine too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

On a recent visit to Cortez we returned again to Nero's for dinner. It was a busy Saturday night but we had only a short wait for a free table. The food as others have attested is consistently good and there is a reasonable selection to choose from the wine list. Our group enjoyed the chicken, pastas and meat selections very much. Certainly worth checking out if you are in the neighborhood.

“yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Had the pleasure of dining with 7 other people and we all ordered different entrees so we had the opportunity to taste different selections, everything was top notch, I had the black cod with pasta fajoles, which the chef described as flaky yet creamy and he was right on, the pasta could have been a meal in itself. The service was great and visiting with the chef always makes it more special. I recommend this dining experience without reservation, although on busy nights a reservation would be wise as it is a small, cozy setting.
