“Could Be Great”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Loved the food; so many good choices, so hard to decide. Went to Saturday evening dinner with 2 friends. We all had something different, and everything was wonderful. Server was Byron; knowledgeable and friendly. Noise level was very high, and has been extreme in the past. This is the reason for a "Very Good" instead of "Excellent". One thing I didn't like was that even with a reservation, we had a 30 minute wait in a crowded entry; reminded me of a Seinfeld episode. When everything else is so good, I hope they can figure out how long it takes to turn a table, and take reservations accordingly.

“The Atmosphere is the Best - Italy! (BYOB)”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

First time at Nunzio's. The atmosphere is a major part of this restaurant. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Tables white and lively. Menu full and the food is great! Start to finish was a great experience. Did I mention the atmosphere?! Try this place with some red wine.

“Worth the wait!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Wonderfully warm and inviting, but be patient even if you have reservations. It's worth the wait. Food is fresh and atmosphere is very comfortable. Very friendly, accomodating staff. The area has many places to dine, but definitley try this one. We will be back again!

“Above and beyond our expectations!!!!!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Recently held two dinners at Nunzio's, one for my Mother in Law's 75th birthday (23 guests), and one for my stepson's wedding. Nunzio's delivered big time on both occasions. Manager Ryan opened the restaurant early one Sunday for my wife and me to experience a private tasting of the banquet menu, which at $39.95 per person, plus tax and tip, was a smoking bargain. Collingswood is all BYOB, so Ryan kindly offered to store/refrigerate all of our wines and Champagne in advance, and display and serve it expertly at no additional charge.

When we arrived, the table was set nicely, with menus for all. Servers explained all the dishes carefully, and answered questions. The food was wonderful, especially the homemade veal sausage, the delicious mussels in red sauce, and the main course of jumbo shrimp. The appetizers were served family style, and if one of the many plates emptied, more was brought out upon request at no additional charge.

I'm not sure about some of the (very few) negative comments I have read about this place, for example, for one reviewer to say that "real Italians" call tomato sauce "gravy" is absurd. Perhaps Italian Americans who have never been to Italy call it that, but over there it is simply called "salsa pomodoro". Sure, you won't find many authentic Italian dishes there like cacio pepe, or tripe, but that's because Americans don't like it! They must sell an edited version of Italian cuisine, they can't have everything!

We couldn't have asked for better food or service. Highly recommended.
