Overpriced restaurants can rectify their prices and image by having outstanding service. Nello does neither. I brought my mother here for an afternoon snack - small cup of coffee and a dessert. The bill was over $50. The table was not set, we never even received a napkin and could not figure out who our waiter was. When I actually received the bill I thought it was a joke, but did not want to create a scene or embarass my mother.

Upon our arrival the booked table was not ready, or set. We were stuffed in the corner by the picture window (in November) bloody cold! Meal arrived; In the centre of the cream soup was a portabello mushroom underneath which a slip of paper bearing the bar code was still attached to it! Didn't know mushrooms grew complete with bar codes! Main course of fish was medocre. We gave up at that stage. Paid our bill but upon exiting the restaurant we were challenged by the waiter who assumed we were leaving without paying. I showed the receipt, he shrugged and stormed off! Never again! Have warned our friends.

$22 for chicken soup? If you are stupid enough to eat here, you deserve the food you get at the prices you pay. The only reason to go there is to stand outside and laugh at the losers and posers who go in and come out.

Somebody who has a hell of a lot more money than I do took me here for dinner and let me tell you something, it is as disappointing as almost everyone says it is. 1) Our waiter was trying hard to pretend he was from Italy with a fake Italian accent but it slipped a couple of times. 2) The food is mediocre at best, there are a ton of places in the Metro Area where you can get better for 1/2 the price. I could go on and on.

Went to Nello by chance on a beautiful night out in the city. Extremely overpriced entrees that were barely average. $200 later for subpar pasta, we left. Would never go back-even if you paid me.

The setting is pleasant enough. The wait staff eye-balls you when you enter sizing you up and down. They probably couldn't afford to eat at the restaurant where they work The food is good but so high priced it is almost a joke. I was waiting for Alan Funt to pop out and tell me "smile you're on candid camera". Its as if they decided how much money they want to gross, then figured how many customers they would serve and backed in to the prices. Very amusing!

The food can be very good here. It also can be very mediocre. For the prices that they demand this place is so far from worth it, that it is kinda funny. If you just want to be seen, and deal with their somethimes snooty service, then this is your spot. Otherwise, save your money and eat anywhere else, then go shopping with the $$ you save.
