This restaurant is on top of the game
Their lamb and risotto are the best in Manhattan. Also one should try home made pasta with lobster in spicy sauce. Service is fantastic. We will bet there for pre-theater dinner soon. Highly recommended

Absolutely wonderful!
I work in the vicinity and often drop by for lunch or dinner. You can't beat the quick service, and wonderful food. Try the daily risotto special - it's always fantastic.

The Best Sauce
I have eaten at some of the best Italian restaurants across the country. And I am pretty picky. I had heard this place was good... and it was! I ordered a red sauce pasta dish that I can't remember the name of but it was probably the best sauce I have ever eaten in my 48 years. We had four in our party and everyone loved what they ordered. I will go again when visiting the city. Make reservations, the place is small but very nice!

Good Italian
I never know when I go for Italian food if it is going to be good. Being Italian it has to be good. I would go back to Nocello's again and again. My friend's who live in the city love it there and are regulars. It is a great place to go before the theater. The chicken stuffed with goat cheese was fantastic. The stuffed mushrooms were to die for. I would highly recommend it.

Always great - best to get in earlier
I have been back three times in the last few months and the food, service and atmosphere is always GREAT! The owners and head waiter really cater to the show crowd but many regulars know that is is a real find. Drinks are great. Specials are always delicious. It can get crowded but the service is excellent.

Only suggestion for pre-theater
My personal favorite for italian in new york. Consistent, reliable service. Fresh dishes, good portions, and the price is right. I only wish i've tried more things there, but i like what i've had so much i always go back to it!

Four of us had a wonderful unhurried pre-theater dinner. First time at this resaturant will be the first of many visits. Would recommend the food, wine and service. Only (small) problem was we were a little squashed at our window table - and we are all well under 200 pounds!

One of the Best!
I've eaten here many times and always forget to rate it. One of the best restaurants in midtown. Attentive staff, phenomenal food, cozy decor - always a great experience at Nocello. I've introduced many friends to this restaurant too, and all have loved it. Perfect with a group or for a romantic dinner for two. I will continue to eat here, and recommend it.

Consistently great food
We've eaten at this Northern Italian restaurant a number of times and are always pleased. We like to share risotto or mussels as an appetizer. The specials are difficult to choose from too -- rack of lamb with parmesan, ravioli with 4 cheeses, scallops. A very good value for the quality of dishes - we like to bring out of town guests and always get positive responses.
