NEBO is by far my favorite restaurant of all time. It is the perfect mix of sophistication and casual dining for an after work drink, a date night or grabbing a bite to eat before...

I don't understand the high rating for this restaurant. We ate at NEBO recently and no one in our party would ever go back. The food was OK, but very overpriced. The manager/ow...

Gluten Free menu rocks!!! 4/4/2011

I was pleasantly surprised by my dinner at Nebo. Great atmosphere the place was hopping when I got there just before 7pm. I started the night off with a new Gluten Free beer, Estrella Daura, a good clean lager made for a great start to the evening Ordering was a challenge because there were over 50 gluten free items on the menu. Talk about variety. Having the added challenge of being lactose intolerant, I had to rely on help from the server. She didn’t fail. She knew the menu well, in fact, when in doubt, she checked with the chef. I was beginning to get a warm feeling about the place. Settling in for my first course, calamari fritti with Mediterranean aioli. Mmmm… The calamari was lightly battered, golden brown and very delicious. It didn’t have that heavy taste that sometimes comes with GF batters. Light and crispy, I was pleasantly awaiting more. I dove into my prosciutto e fichi pizza without cheese, but added, caramelized onions. So sweet! They have 21 pizzas to choose from, plus a whole group of extra toppings. The crust is soft, not the hard thin crust I am used to, an extremely thin focaccia with hints of olive oil and nuttiness with a crunch. The sweetness of the onion, figs against the saltiness of the prosciutto made this a great dinning experience. I was full half way through the pizza, but couldn’t stop. It was that good. I might have liked more of a fig spread rather than cut up whole figs so that I could have had a more balanced fig flavor, but it was very tasty nonetheless. (have I mentioned LOVE figs) I chatted with Carla Pallotta,, half the dynamic duo that runs Nebo. She and her sister Christine, came up with the idea for the Gluten Free menu after a few experimental dinners in their kitchen for a few celiac friends. They have certainly done well. Overall great experience. By the way I failed to mention that I got stood up that night. A couple of friends had to bail at the last minute, but that certainly didn’t dampen my spirits.

Bad, Worse, Nebo - worst service ever 12/13/2010

Honestly, the first time I was at Nebo, I liked the atmosphere and the food. So I decided to go again last Saturday. We had a reservation for 5pm and have been slightly early at 4.45pm - we noticed the door was open, so we wanted to come in and ask if we can already have a seat (especially since it was cold outside). But we did not even have a chance to come in since your hostess immediately ran towards us and kicked us out with the worst attitude I've ever seen, saying ""WE'RE OPENING AT 5!"" and locked the door. We did not even have the chance to say anything. The food might be good, but I would not even have expected this kind of behavior at Mc Donald’s. That was just really rude. (I think I don't have to mention, that we didn't come back at 5pm - we went to PF Changs.) more

Most Delicious Restaurant In The NEBO 2/8/2010

NEBO is by far my favorite restaurant of all time. It is the perfect mix of sophistication and casual dining for an after work drink, a date night or grabbing a bite to eat before an event at the Garden. NEBO is suitable for all ages and is definatley a crowd pleaser for all. \r \r The italian style food at NEBO is tasty and delicious! You can't go wrong with ordering any of the pizzas on the menu, they are all yummy. The Cozze, Calamari Fritti and Timballo di Melanzana are some of my favorites and I would highly recommend to anyone. You can't go wrong with a visit to NEBO, go dine and enjoy. Your in for a treat at an affordable price! Pros: amazing food, great atmosphere, best experience Cons: NONE! more

Try the Dessert Pizza 2/8/2010

Went to Nebo with 15 friends to celebrate my 18th birthday, and they were happy to see us! I had been there before and love this restaurant, especially the dessert pizza with nutella and hazelnuts. My friends couldn’t get enough of the shrimp pizza and kept ordering more, the wait-staff was great and very patient. The owners Carla and Christine kept coming over to the table and talking and joking with us, we all felt very special. It was a really fun night and my friends who had never been before still talk about it. We are planning to go before a concert next month. Pros: Food, service, cool atmosphere more

Can't get enough of NEBO 2/8/2010

From my first visit I knew this would become a favorite, the food is delicious, best fried calamari I have ever had and the mussels, chicken limone and pizza are to die for. \r \r Love the atmosphere. Its perfect for a quick bite and a drink at the bar, (by the way, Brian makes the best Sangria!) or for dinner with friends. I recommend ordering a little of everything then passing it around, you won't be disappointed.\r \r Can't wait to go back, try it if you haven't already, you will love it!\r Pros: Owners made you feel like family more

Not worth it 2/3/2010

went after the hockey game last night and ordered a salad which was essentially wilted, a pizza that had no toppings even though we ordered toppings and service that was average at best. won't be coming back here and would not recommend. I guess they count on the before and after crowd from the Garden who does not know any better. Pros: dessert Cons: price, food quality, service more

Warning-STAY AWAY 12/23/2009

We made a reservation for three and were stuck at a two-top table in the corner where we could not even reach our food on the table due to the crush of our legs in the way. When we complained, we were told we could eat elsewhere. When we asked for simple bread, we received garlic- covered stale toast and were charged for it! Part of our food order was completely forgotten. The food, overall, was mediocre at best and overpriced. Overall, a terrible experience...stay away! Pros: Convenient to the Garden Cons: Horrendous service and mediocre food more

Great for gluten-free! 11/28/2009

My family went here twice in 4 days! Have a full gluten-free menu including pizza, pastas, entrees and desserts. The gluten-free pizza crust tastes great and has a great texture. The entrees (try the breaded chicken!) are good and can be made gluten-free as well. The desserts (the lemon torte had a sweet yet tart taste with a rich and flaky gluten-free shell) are delicious. Normal menu is excellent as well! Pros: gluten-free friendly more

Great gluten free Pizza 8/26/2009

Went on line to find a good eatery that caters to celiac's as well as Vegans. People with celiac disease cannot eat gluten. We had the greatest experience!!! Went on a Thursday night met the one of the owners Carla, she was so welcoming , the menu, the food was so delicious!!! I had a pizza a delicious pizza at that out!!!! I have since gone back about 3 times and myself and friends have enjoyed Nebos very much. Another fun fact is parking is not too bad. You can walk over to the North End for a stroll as it is right around the corner. Glad to have found a nice place to relax and enjoy delicious Italian food with out the gluten.. Good Luck Carla and Christine Dianne Desmond Pros: Best place to experience truly delicious Italian food Cons: none!!!!!! more

Why? 8/22/2009

This was the worst dining experience I've had in Boston. I simply cannot understand how this place gets so many good reviews. The pizza was bland and overpriced; our waiter indifferent at best. When we asked for bread (because of the loooong wait) we were given stale bread and CHARGED for it. Atmosphere is nothing special. A very negative experience. Pros: nothing Cons: food, service, prices... you name it more

Amazing Italian Dinner with Top Service and...GLUTEN FREE! 8/2/2009

My wife and I spent an evening in Boston to celebrate her Birthday! We had been craving Italian in the North End, but since my wife was diagnosed with a wheat gluten intolerance/allergy (Celiac Disease) in the past year...the North End seemed like an impossibility until I read about NEBO.\r \r We were astonished by the menu...a complete-full menu for gluten free dining in addition to the regular menu. \r \r In order to share dishes we both ordered from the gluten free menu. We started with a to-die-for eggplant appetizer with mozzarella and tomato sauce...yum!\r \r We then had the Pasta (yes gluten free pasta) with pancetta and onion...awesome...you would never guess you were eating gluten free!\r \r We also split a fig and prociutto gluten free pizza...OUR FAVORITE PIZZA PERIOD! Yum! In a million years you will not believe it is gluten free.\r \r We were so impressed with our server and Carla, one of the owner's was so caring and came over to chat with us several times about the menu and the restaurant. Her enthusiasm and the efforts of her team have truly paid off!\r \r We couldn't reccommend a restaurant more highly...try it...you'll love it.\r \r We will be back and bring our friends and family! Thank you again Carla! Pros: Diverse Menu, Cool Atmosphere, Delicious Food Cons: NONE! more

Great food, great atmosphere and great hosts 7/25/2009

We are visiting from Washington, DC and wanted to experience the North End. We found Nebo in one of the books and made our reservations. Carla and Christine, the owners came by our table to check on us throughout the meal. When Christine found out we were from out of town, she sent Carla over to help us plan the rest of the evening as well as our next day in Boston. And to top it off, the Sox won 3-1! We had a wonderful experience and can't wait to get back to Boston. Pros: Food, Service, Hospitality Cons: There weren't any! more

Great people... Great food 7/8/2009

My wife I have been going in to Nebo regularly for about 2-and -a-half years now, and have grown to feel as at home at the bar or at a table as we do in our very own living room. The owners Carla and Christina have remembered us by name from the second time we dined at Nebo and are never too busy to talk with us about just everyday life, nor is the bartender Brian... great guy to talk to. Oh, and the food... ha. The homemade pasta is apparently still made with a knife and broomstick, and the proof is in the taste. I recommend the Ricotta Gnocchi. The pizza's as well as most of the other delicious menu items are also made with homemade ingredients and taste just as one would expect homemade italian food to taste. Also, the draft beer at Nebo, for some reason, is excellent. Nebo is a great place for a date or any time you want to eat great food in a laid-back but beautiful environment. Pros: Homemade Pasta, Great Draft Beer, Excellent Pizza more

Absolutely Floored- for both Celiac's and the Rest... 7/1/2009

Excellent atmosphere, beautiful decor, and lovely staff. Incredibly hospitable to my gluten free needs. The menu for those of us who suffer from Celiac's is incredibly extensive, not the typical ""list"" of four or five substandard creations a restauarnt has to offer from us. You can expect the unexpected here, not only for people without food allergies, but for the people with Celiac's as well; I had a delicious, gourmet pizza that was created upon the most genuine tasting bread I've had since diagnosed. Congenial and appreciative, the head chef extends her welcome to all and is open to all the comments and suggestions you could offer - although we had very few! We were happily surprised by the treat she had prepared for us - a gluten free sicilian slice, which tasted as though it had been cooked on french bread.... delish! I give it a 5 out of 5, and my son who dined with me [and does not have Celiac's] reccomends the homemade pasta with scallops as well. A definite must if you have gluten allergies when in Boston!!!! Pros: Bread... that tastes real? Note- this is not a paid advert Cons: None to write more

company night out 5/29/2009

NEBO is the perfect place for great food, a great atmosphere and excellent service!!!! my husband's company took about 20 guys out for dinner and not only was the food fresh, hot and delivered to the tables without delay....but the wait staff was wonderful. \r i would recommend NEBO to anyone looking for an elegant, yet, laid-back night out!!!!! Pros: excellent service Cons: parking more

Delicious food, great Gluten Free Menu 5/27/2009

My family and I just had a wonderful evening at Nebo's. Food was excellent and we could not believe they had a scruptious gluten free menu. Is it a ""must"" for any celiac. You won't be disappointed and neither will anyone dining with you. Carla (the owner) and her sister are delightful hosts as well. Pros: Wonderful Gluten Free Menu more

Gluen free 4/10/2009

I was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 years ago and have since dreaded going out to eat with friends.went to Nebo last night and had so many gluten free choices that I didn't know what to order first. All the food I ordered tasted so good I wanted to cry. Had fried calamari, shrimp scampi with polenta and a pizza. It was so hood that my friends ate off my plate. Can't wait to to back . more

Food for thought.... 2/25/2009

Traveling for work can sometimes take it's toll. I ended up eating at nebo by chance, was on my to Hanover St., and wandered into this place. Sat at the bar and had an appetizer and a pizza. Antipasti, is what they call it. Caprese, tomato with mozz and oil and a Gino pizza. Hot peppers and hot sausage will definately clear your nostrils on a winter evening. I stayed with a soda but the wine list and bar looked pretty decent. Place was a little quiet for a Tuesday but it got me outta the cold. Liked the experience. The girl bartending was nice. Pros: food, decor, service Cons: Off the beaten path. more
