Chick and Nello's is a Central Jersey tradition. With few exceptions, the dishes are perfectly prepared and the service is warm and competent. You immediately feel at home. I can hardly think of a red gravy Italian restaurant that I would recommend over Chick and Nello's. Beautiful pasta, wonderful meats, and excellent cocktails. It is not a place one visits for decor, but for the warmth of the staff.

Was in Trenton last week. No trip there is complete without visiting Chicks....The food is has been great since the 1950"s when my parents would take me there for special accessions. Hasn't changed.....still great.

Long hots on the table with fresh Italian bread when we arrive, a very fresh arugula salad with a few slices of red onion very mildly dressed. salad offered with crumbled blue, and anchovies as well if you like. followed by a family style serving of pencil points in a very nice almost vodka style sauce. followed by classic veal parm. also sampled the meatloaf. all was very good. if you haven't been, you should go. wave to the chef in the kitchen, been there ever since I can remember. Good people.

Old farmhouse converted to restaurant. Food is exceptional! Love the chicken cacciatore, arugula salad, lamb chops. Could go on and on but it's making me hungry and wanting to go back!

Dinner last night at Chick and Nello's Homestead Inn in Hamilton NJ just outside of Trenton, the state capital of New Jersey, was terrific. Chick & Nello's has been serving the Trenton area since 1939! The place is family owned and run and has a quirky personality. The patrons last night appeared to be regulars from the local area. Despite being outsiders, we were warmly welcomed and felt right at home. After sitting at the bar and chatting with some folks there, we were seated for dinner by the door to the kitchen and were able to watch the cooks in action. The Porterhouse steak was great, the roast chicken delicious. We give it two thumbs up and look forward to going back. Hopefully we will bring some friends that we know will love it.

Being based in New Brunswick, this is definitely out of our usual area. Since we are always game for adventures in food, we were stoked. Looking at google maps, I was able to find a few ways to get there.

Upon arriving at the Inn on Kuser Road, my first impression was
