A small place with special touches. Good menu but specials of the day are usually unique and excellent. Good wine list. Great service but tables are a little close. Neighborhood gem.

The Nocello is located near by Columbus Circle. If you want to have a light Italian food after a full day of sightseeing in New York, this is a good option. Prices are competitive, service is good and the food is tasty.

I've eaten here for many years and the service and food quality always remain high. It's a guaranteed good meal. Specials are always changing and the menu provides great choices. Plus they are accommodating and will make whatever you want.

Every time we go to NYC, we make a reservation at Nocello. The wine selection is fantastic and the food always exceeds our expectations. My 12-year old niece joined us this year and when she couldn't find something she wanted in the menu, they agreed to make what she wanted. As always, a great dinner experience!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
