“Really good Italian in St. Simons”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I was a little concerned when I saw it was in a strip mall, but it turned out fine. The selection was very good, and the execution of the meal was perfect. The service was top-rate and we really had a good time. The wine list was a bit of a surprise as I didn't expect to see $30 wines on the list with $800 wines--but we were able to find some really good values. It isn't the fanciest Italian restaurant I have ever been to, but it is the best in the area. Definitely should try it when you are in the mood for Italian comfort food.

“One of my Favorites on St Simons!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Nazzaro's is by far one of my favorites restaurants on St SImons. The food is always delicious with so many options. Even if you are not into pasta, they will have something to your liking. So many great local seafood/fish options to choose from and they are always running a great new special to try. Can't beat the early bird specials for $13.95. Great wine menu too. This is one fo the first places we think of when family and friends are in town. Top notch service and atmosphere.

“Wonderful Italian Food in St Simons”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

My wife and I visit St Simons several times per year and we always go to Nazarro's for dinner. The menu selections are varied, well prepared and the service is spot on. The owner and staff make you feel like family even though we are only there a few nights a year. Don't miss a local favorite.
