We eat here regularly. My mother and I consider this our place. The staff is great and service is excellent. On Thursday, they have German Tomato soup which is fabulous. They have daily specials. The chef is funny and receptive to compliments!!! My friends have become frequent visitors. It is good food at good price!

Just north of the Detroit Zoo, Nello's is a nice mom & pop restaurant. Good soups and salads, wonderful breakfasts, nice staff and a clean restaurant - who could ask for more. Their Maurice salad is very tasty as is their Greek salad. Portions are good sized and I usually have enough left over for a second meal. I eat... More

Nello's is a Royal Oak staple. The breakfast is good and hearty and the prices are fair. Nello's is always on my short list for a good place to meet along the Woodward corridor.

Went to Nello's for a quick dinner before attending a church function. It was quiet, clean and the service was way above average.

I was staying with friends in the area who come here a LOT for breakfast and I can see why: I was NOT disappointed. Friendly wait staff, great prices and very tasty food (plentiful portions, too). I had the spinach omelet and the surprise to me was that it had feta cheese, which I adore. It was well cooked and... More

Lots of food choices. Service is great, food is nothing exceptional but good clean food. Good for a group get together and not too loud so you can have an enjoyable conversation with your dinner companions.

Everyone there was really nice and the service was good. I was pleasantly surprised that they actually used real cheese on my omelet not Kraft singles slices and they food was cooked just right. The only thing that got them marks off was the fruit I ordered was a little was ripe.
