We visited this restaurant recently and there isn't a thing on their menu that wasn't good!!! This food is as authentic as you grew up with if you're first generation Italian! If you're not - or didn't grow up with this food and taste.... I'm sorry! But there is still time! Seriously.... Everything from appetizers to main course.... Pasta or... More

What did I like best here? The bread and the coffee. First, parking in the lot is difficult to say the least. I went for a private dinner, where they section you off from the restaurant. Room is very drab. Pasta with vodka sauce was ok. Salad was bad. Vegetables lacked flavor, potato croquette was meh. Parts of veal were... More

Went with another couple on a Thursday Night. They offered a 2 for 1 special which we took advantage of. Choices were good and food was delicious.

Went to Nucci's South with friends to have the Sunday Family Dinner. You get a big bowl of pasta with sausages, meatballs, pork and bracciole (just like at Grandma's). It was delicious.

The Pro Go to for Tottenville. Fantastic, professional service from the long time sets Nucci's apart. The pastas are always excellent and the various deals explain why there is an overflow of cars parked here every night of the week. Enjoy, If there is a wait grab a wine or sangria at the bar and really enjoy.

Went to nucci/s south for the first time on Father's Day 2015. Food and service was great and will go back in a heart beat.offered a regular menu and prices were not inflated. The rest. Is not fancy and causal dress is good . If u live on s.i. You must check out this gem of a rest. .
