It was so dark I could not read the menu. The waiter brought me a flashlight. Lame! The phone keep ringing for take out right next to our table. How unprofessional. Meals were ok and very overpriced. Never again.
Customer service is terrible. We went one time and the food was just 'okay'. We decided to give it another try since we had a special occasion coming up and decided to get all dressed up and go all out there. We called for reservations early on - and they told us they couldn't make the reservations yet and asked us to call back after 4:00. We called back at about 4:02 and they told us they were completely booked. And they couldn't tell us they were booked when we called the first time?? Whomever I dealt with on the phone was snooty and rude and did not even try to fix the situation.
We will NOT go back.
Rivers got us right in and it was the most incredible dinner and service. Too bad they have now closed - they trumped Nello's in every way in our opinion.
Two thumbs down for Nello's.
Friends invited us to dinner at Nello's. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Our dinners came with a salad that was made at the table--excellent.
Our dinners of Calamari Dore and Eggplant Parm were perfect. Had a very good zinfandel. Only minor problem was reading the menu in the available light. Our waiter immediately offered a little flashlight! Would definitely return and absolutely recommend to others.
The only restaurant in Redding that I can say we receive outstanding and professional service EVERY visit. Most table staff are family and they remember familiar faces. Food is consistent. One of the few restaurants that offer full course. We appreciate the ambience. Our favorite dishes are meat oriented in fine italian restaurants and pasta in ordinary italian restaurants. Our favorites here are: chicken marsala, italian style halibut and halibut in lemon caper sauce.
This North Beach Style Italian Restaurant continues to set a high standard for their cuisine. Some of our favorites are Scampi, Scallops Dore, Grilled Fish, Veal and excellent Pasta dishes. Their decor is very dated and could use a makeover, but their food makes up for it. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys traditional Italian food.
