“Average Italian Fare”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Nunzio's was hit or miss with us. My app was the sausage, broccoli rabe and beans. It was flavorful and perfectly seasoned. My partners Ceasar Salad was average. My partner's veal marsala was not good at all. The marsala sauce tasted like it was not fresh or from a can. My pasta with shrimp was good but not great. The dessert we had tasted like it had been in the fridge too long and had picked up other flavors. All in all this wasn't a bad experience but there's much better in Collingswood if you're looking for Italian food.

“Liked the food and athmosphere.”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

Great Italian cooking on more sophisticated side, nice selection, lots of specials : the food was really GOOD. We had a group of 7 adults of all ages and everybody was happy with their selections. The service was prompt and elegantly attentive. They did not call us "guys" (unlike in many other establishments...) even once. Instead they turned to each person respectfully and attentively. The food was served promptly. It is a BYOB restaurant and they are fully prepared to accommodate your wine bottle on ice if needed. We also liked the decor which is supposed to give you an illusion of a cozy piazza of an Italian town. Nicely appointed and decorated also with the flags from Siena horse race. The only minus is parking. Since it is Collingswood you are at the mercy of street meters.

“Longtime customer- Cheated by Manager By Not Honoring Gift Card”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

We obtained a $ 20 holiday gift card after spending $100 in January there. It was the last day of restaurant week and my wife called Nunzios and were assured that the card would be honored. My wife ordered the $35 "special" menu and I ordered from the regular menu with the additional of 2 other sides. The manager refused to honor the card only explaining that the computer would not accept it. After a short discussion with him, I realized that by not honoring the coupon, he did not care if we ever came back to Nunzios again, Accordingly, we will never pay for a meal at this restaurant ever again. The manager's decision not to honor the card is an example of being "penny wise and dollar foolish" as the bad will he demonstrated will have a negative impact on his business.

“Consistently outstanding”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Nunzio's food and service is consistently amongst the best. His many years as a chef and restaurant owner lead to well prepared old standbys, as well as innovative new favorites. The restaurant decor is beautiful. If I have one issue with Nunzio's, it's the noise level. People eating there are having a good time, and everyone knows it.
