My wife and I visited Nazzaro's during our week on Saint Simons Island. It was the only night we went out that wasn't at Southern Soul Barbeque.
We arrived in time for the Early Bird Menu, which is quite extensive. I enjoyed the Chicken Parmesan. It was served with a salad and pasta. It was prepared perfectly and served hot. I couldn't ask for more.
My wife enjoyed an eggplant dish that had several types of cheese and I think some spinach. She enjoyed hers as well. We each had enough to take home and have dinner another night.
The waiter was great. He was a little quiet at first, but opened up and became more friendly as the evening went on. He was very attentive and was spot on with refilling our waters. Decor is nice and classy.
If you get there before 6:30, be sure to ask for the Early Bird menu. Great selection of entrees for $13.95 and $5 house wines. If you don't get there before 6:30, the regular prices seemed a little high in my book.

We have always loved Nazarro's. They have some of the best italian we have tried. We have eagerly awaited the new expansion and remodeling and it is very impressive! Definitely go check it out! Try the new bar menu. We found the italian nachos to be amazing!

We were a group of 17 women. We reserved a private room so not to disturb other diners. The staff was great and the food very hot and extremely good. We were served all at once and they didn't bat an eye as to our request for separate checks. What a fun night!

Delicious food & outstanding service in a pleasant setting filled with many, rightfully proud photos of familia Nazzaro. It was far and away the best dining experience we've had in the Golden Isles. Complimenti allo Chef John e Robert il cameriere!
