Recently visited this little restaurant and looking forward to going back. Service was outstanding, very good wine list and really nice food. Authentic Tuscan style - we all had different pasta dishes, each of which were superb. Can't recommend it highly enough.

It was my husbands birthday and wanted a special romantic restaurant. Nocello was a fantastic choice. It was warm, cozy, the service and the food was outstanding. They had a candle for his dessert and it was close to our hotel.

A quaint, cozy, and romantic Italian restaurant with very reasonably priced dishes and wine. It is very quiet so probably not the best place for a large group or rambunctious crowd but a great spot for a date. Wine bottles start at $29 (quite a...More

Nice,cozy atmosphere was it’s strongest point. Food was decent but not great. Prices were good. The veal cut itself was great,but the dish kinda missed. Service was meh. Dishes came out very fast,but additional orders were sluggish. Waiter was less than enthused. I don’t think...More
