Excellent Italian food served in shareable plates. Super tasty, by far our best meal in Nashville. I will come back for sure.

Amazing service and food. Everything was on point. Our waiter was also a musician and gave us great tips about where to see live music in the downtown area. Hidden gem!

Amazing food and great service. It is a different concept where you order several small plates for the table but we truly enjoyed the experience and highly recommend. This was our last night in Nashville and by far one of our favorite meals.

A phenomenal Italian restaurant in Nashville? Who knew. It is a "small plate" restaurant so just be aware of that. Plates are small and meant to be shared. We ordered Baked Caprese, Radiatori Vodka, potato croquettes, Malfaine Al ragu, crispy garlic potatoes, casarecci & Italian...sausage, garlic bread for appetizers & dinners. Pelato Palmer, sangria and 2 glasses of Mosacato were our drinks of choice. When I say everything tasted awesome, it really did! All of it! We are from Upstate NY area and did not expect it all to be as good as it really was. We finished off dinner with a peach melba dessert and limoncello sorbet. We are going back to Nashville in a couple weeks and already have reservations. Our waiter Will even offered to sing Happy birthday to my niece- without us even asking. And then brought out the peach melba with a candle in it. We could see why this place was full. Total bill for the all the above before tip was $211More

We learned about Pelato on a national TV morning show and were eager to try it on our trip to Nashville. We were able to make a reservation at9pm for the patio. The small plates are meant to be shared and are the perfect opportunity...to sample many of the menu items. My husband and I ordered 5 total including the garlic bread (butter crispy delicious), zucchini fries (lightly battered and crispy fried), burnt broccolini (nicely charred and sauced with black garlic). We each ordered a pasta plate and found them perfectly prepared al dente and quite tasty. Plates are served at temperature when they are prepared so the meal comes out over several minutes. The wine list was a nice selection. Desserts looked interesting but we didn’t save room for one…maybe next time. Service is attentive and friendly. The place is busy….do make a reservation.More

Great Italian food is hard to come by in Nashville, but Pelato is able to bring a little of the NYC Italian feel into the heart of Germantown in Nashville. It is a small plate experience, but the portions are large, well thought out and...delicious. The atmosphere is quaint, not too loud and a great night out for conversation. Overall, highly recommend, especially for their weekend brunch.More

Was invited by some friends to come here this past week. The food is surprisingly good, only issue was they ran out of multiple things when we got there, it was later, but that doesn't mean items should stop being prepared if they're still going...to offer seating. Our waitress was so sweet, and seemed like she was rushing between tables next to us. I think she started to notice our annoyance about running out of items, and offered some great recommendations, the manager did stop by to what I assume was suppose to be an apology for being out of items? It was appreciated at first, but he came off very sarcastically rude and the apology felt generic. In a way, made us feel like it was our fault for having a later reservation, which they offered the time slot. Again, the food and service was good, we just felt rushed and the manager Evan was just overall rude, condescending, and made us feel unappreciated as customers and showed absolutely no ounce of hospitality. Otherwise I think I could've given 3 or 4 stars. Managment attitude ruined the experience far beyond them just not having a couple items. Won't return.More
