Lived the salmon with lentils. But restaurant closed suddenly this summer. It was just a little on edge of town.

Been here twice and was not impressed by either food or service The first time was a disaster. It was crowded noisy and we had a waiter who was stupid and inefficient. food was not memorable but waiter ruined the evening. The next time we were there was for a graduation party. That was better. The food was OK and... More

Do you appreciate craft cocktails, made by a bartender (formerly of Milk and Honey) who knows the chemistry, backstory and history of each drink and is super passionate about his work? Run, don't walk, to Nessa. Worship at the rail of Al's well stocked bar, and savor the best cocktails of your LIFE! Al will blow your mind! The food... More

Great food. Absolutely love the gnocchi. Great drinks - recommend the Cosmo. Nice ambiance. We have dinner at 6:00 before an 8:00 show and have plenty of time for apps, dinner, and a couple drinks. Quick valet service also.

Nessa is our go-to place for dinner with friends or a delicious dinner after a great movie. We have NEVER been disappointed and always feel welcome when we walk in. The Bruschetta is awesome and although everything on the menu is delicious, one of us almost always orders the rigatoni bolognese - it's the best we have ever had.

We stopped by Nessa with a tall order: get us in and out in 30 minutes so that we could make a movie. They succeeded beyond our expectations... Taking a seat at the bar, we were greeted warmly by the bartender, who assured us confidently that he would take care of us and have us on our way in time.... More

Four of us went to Nessa to have a great night out. First the good stuff. The servers were pleasant and attentive. We started at the bar ordering three Pinots and a beer. $55.00 for that. OK, NY Prices I said. Then the food. The pork chop I has was under cooked and under spiced. Bland with vinegar peppers on... More

This restaurant was such a let down. The service was among the worst we have had in a long time, the food was good at best.. I will say the meatballs were really wonderful and the calamari too. The Spaghetti Carbonara was not exucuted the authentic way and lacked flavor.

What a great variety of small plates, most notably the different varieties of meatballs and bruschetta! If you're starving, they have plenty of traditional entrees to choose from as well. Well made drinks from the bar, a friendly staff, and a lively but not too noisy environment make Nessa a really enjoyable experience.

Thank Don O
