Just good food, great pizza at Nellos 11/20/2010

I had the chance to visit some friends at Mesa, and they took me to Nellos Pizza in Mesa. The ambiance was really great! Their crew was very attentive and for a small pizza place, I would say, they got class. more

Best Pizza Joint in Town 12/13/2009

Although Nello's isn't in the glory days that it had several years ago, it still provides great, Chicago style deep dish pizza. As far as the service goes, they provide reasonably good service the only downside is the majority of them are men. But the most important thing about Nello's is the pizza, nothing else. The pizza isn’t incredibly deep, but it definitely gets the job done. With deep dish sizes of 7”, 10”, 12”, and 14” everyone can get their needs met. Nello’s also does a great job offering a variety of 30 toppings including my personal favorite, the homemade sausage. That first bite into the homemade sausage tastes so sweet, it’s like natural candy. If you’re feeling a tad bit more daring they also offer artichoke, some peppers, and even anchovies. Personlly I go with the 7” personal deep dish homemade sausage pizza. The homemade sausage is to die for and truly tastes like a gift from the heavens. It’s both succulent and sweet, while still appealing to the traditional hardy sausage lovers. And although the pizza's size doesn’t sound like much it quickly fills you up. You don’t have to get the traditional deep dish, they also offer a thin crust and whole wheat deep dish for the health nuts, but Nello's is all about the traditional deep dish so I'd stick with it. When you take your first bite into the traditional deep dish pizza at Nello’s you taste the nice buttery crust, stringy, hot cheese, and the delicious sweet sauce. This sauce is what sets Nello’s apart from everywhere else, it’s uniquely sweet compared to other pizzerias, but it’s not overly sweet or strong. Unlike other pizza places, like Oregano’s, the pizza doesn’t take 30-45 minutes to make and the dough doesn’t taste undercooked. Not only is the pizza fantastic, but the prices are great at Nello’s too. A 7” cheese pizza is only $4.60 and works perfectly for someone dining alone, while a two topping 14” pizza will run you $15.05 which is average for a large pizza without a special anyway. Considering the authenticity and quality of the pizzas at Nello’s it’s definitely well worth the money you’d spend on it over any other pizza joint in town. more

Keep Driving 12/15/2008

Watched service and quality degrade over years. Nebraska fan hang out? Not a bad place but the location further west on Warner offers better food, new items, faster service, and a real parking lot. more

used to be GREAT! 6/8/2008

Years ago this was THE pizza to beat...I think they changed from their origanal dough. in the past few years it has been a dissapointment. Maybe new owners? It's still good, just not even close to what it once was. more

Lousy Service and Pizza 2/28/2008

My family went to Nellos on Sunday night, and recieved the worst service and it was compounded by undercooked pizza. After being seated, a 10 minute delay for greetings from our server. I then ordered all of our drinks and food. The drinks arrived 13 minutes later, and salad and garlic bread 10 minutes after that. The undercooked pizza arrived 19 minutes after that, 52 minutes for a large thin crust pizza was too long. The bottom of the crust was not crunchy, it was soft and watery. We asked the waitress to fix it, and 13 more minutes later, it was almost burnt on top, and the bottom was not much better than before. If there was a manager on duty to complain to, she was too busy eating behind the bar to worry about customers. Pros: Usually good Cons: service and crust more

Fabulous crust, more food than you think 9/7/2006

We got take-home from Nello's and had not been there before, so we ordered based on our experience with other Pizza restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised at the large portions. The crust was as good as any we've had, and the ingredients were exceptional as well. The pan pizzas are DEEP. more

Not as good as it used to be 6/21/2006

I started going to Nello's when it was at their origingal location on the SW corner of Southern & McClintock, catty-corner from their present Tempe location. Nello's USED to be my favorite pizza for many years. When my friends visit from Cal, Nello's was a mandatory stop. Unfortunately that is no longer the case. The pizza just isn't as good as it used to be. I think there are others that feel the same because it is not nearly as crowded as it used to be. We are looking for a new favorite pizza place. We won't be going back to Nello's. more

The Best Pizza in the Valley 11/7/2005

Having been an employee with Nello's in the past, I have to highly recommend that everyone eat there . Almost everything on the menu is homemade and not to mention you get a lot of food for your money.The owners are wonderful and make you feel right at home. The great thing is , is how clean the place is which is very important in choosing a restaurant to dine at frequently. I do have to say that the service has really gone downhill the past 2 years, but hopefully they will get enough constructive criticism and theywill get back to what it once was. We have always said its the Best Pizza in the Valley Pros: tasty, clean!!!, great menu Cons: service needs help more

Horrible Pizza 10/14/2005

Wow that was the worst pizza I have ever had! I think the cardboard pizza box would have tasted better. There was NO flavor in any of the pizza's we tried, Mt. Veggie and Pepperoni. I serriosly have never bought something and just throw it away, but lastnight we did. I am amazed at how many people say this is the best pizza in Phoenix, what a sad thing to say. We might have to move away from Phoenix if this is really the best it has to offer. Poor service too, I sat on the phone for 15 minutes to order and then the staff was just down right rude! Not a keeper at all! Go buy Pizza Hut if you want pizza in Phoenix you will be more satisfied with you meal. Pros: none, none, none Cons: bad food, bad service, bad parking more

Norfolks comments? 5/18/2005

This pizza is by far one of the best pies around... this is a professional opinion that has has tasted pizza from all over the country and has personally worked in a mom n' pop resturant for about 6 years (far, far away) and more importantly is not based on a single dinning expericence. The service, atmosphere and over all quality is great- TRY IT! YOU WON'T BE LET DOWN more

Nello's 8/17/2004

I do NOT recommend this pizza at all. It was by far the worst, most bland pizza I have ever had in my life! Everybody else I was with agreed with me. I have heard that the other items on the menu were ok, however I will never return after such a bad experience. more

nellos is the very best 5/12/2004

We love Nellos I have never been disappointed the service is always great... The best salads in town too.. try the house dressing it is worth the trip alone!!! Thank you nellos for all the years of great pizza plus the staff always remembers us that is unheard of at any other pizzeria!!!!!! Pros: fast service, large portions, homemade more

Excellent 3/2/2004

I have been going to Nello's for 17 years. I have watched it change from one Mei brother to the next as Danny went to Ahwatukee and Brian took over. The staff are always friendly and remember your name as well as the owner. The Pizza has been excellent, and consistant and love their Italian beef (French Dip) sandwiches. Every time I have taken someone there over the years, they have been impressed. They don't advertise, as word of mouth keeps them extremely busy. Pros: good food, friendly staff, consistant more

MMMMMMM Good 12/14/2003

I had Nello's (Ahwatukee) for the first time five years ago on a first date with my husband. He introduced me to it and no we go several times a week. The entire staff knows what we eat, what we drink and all our friends by first name. It's hard to find places like that anymore. I recommend getting a pizza with bacon, spinach, feta cheese and red onions...mmmmmmm! Have George make you a George's pizza for a real treat, he'll choose the toppings and you will love it! Pros: Great service, great food, reasonable wait times Cons: Closed on Mondays, little ambiance more

Best food intown 5/14/2003

This restaurant is so friendly and the food is outstanding!! Great Pizza, salads and sandwiches. The place is also very clean. more

Feeling good 5/14/2003

Nello's is the type of neighborhood place you love to bring you friends and out of state family. Say no to the cookie cutter pizza joints. All of their locations have their own personality. I frequent the Alma School location. The pizza is just the beginning, the salads ,sandwiches are first class. The staff has never dissappointed. They must be happy because many of them have been there for a long time. If you have'nt been to one of these establishments,what are you waiting for? The thin crust pizza is to die for. more
