We stopped in for a drink, sat outside and could barely get a waitress to pay attention to us. She suggested the special appetizer, carparcio with truffles. It weas not on the menu, we took her suggestion. A wine, a beer and the appetizer was $225! Stqay away, there are too many other great resturants in NYC that will treat you better and be more reasonable.

The food is at the level of a dinner, but more expensive than any other 5 star restaurant in New York. The service is poor, the waiter with a smirk on his face appears only to tell you about the "specials" -a pasta with shaved truffle mushrooms with undisclosed price $275??!! Music is so loud you can't hear yourself. Gratuity 20% is included even if it is 2 of you. Upon siting at the table they bring " belinis" with a loud " Salute!!" without anyone ordering them and then you get charged $20 for each. Place is a BIG SCAM!!

So I went here for my birthday. All I have to say is -- these reviews are correct. This place is just about as expensive as Per Se, and is MORE expensive per person than Daniel, Jean Georges, Le Bernadin, etc. The clincher, was the entree I ordered. The presented the special of the night as a pasta dish, with "summer" truffle or white truffle. The waiter recommended the white truffle (no kidding). The dish was OK but it was an appetizer sized portion. Then the bill came, the "White Truffle dish" was $250. For a SMALL dish of pasta. Save yourself.

We just walked in for lunch without checking the menu or prices. Service was poor it took quite some time to catch the waiters attention. Champagne or Bellini were brought to the table along with the menu. We almost chocked I paid more here than in Jean George, Daniel and Le Berdnardine where we had dinner. Never ever will I get close to this place.

Stopped here for a late lunch alone. It was the most expensive lunch I've ever had ($100 for pesto pasta, one glass of wine and water, for which they charged $15 - what's wrong with NYC water?!) The prices were outrageous, the service pretentious and food barely mediocre.

beside the very nice location and decor and the good variety of the menu, food quality was disappointing, service quiet poor and the music, for being a week day was too loud.

Two of us recently had lunch at Nello - we were seated and asked offered drinks, we got water and ice tea. After being told what the special was we were given bread sticks, and unsuspecting as we were, decided to order from the special. Well, the bill came and we were horrified - just under $400.00 for two people with no alcohol. We are still trying to recover and promised never to return - in the meantime we are telling everyone we know to stay away!!
