I was a little hesitant to take my mother and brother there this evening, based on some of the reviews I'd read, but to my shame, I did. In a nutshell: 1) Waitress didn't know the...

Worst restaurant experience 11/4/2010

Worst customer service ever! I went here for a friend's birthday brunch and waited 3 hours for our food to arrive. Actually, it never really arrived. What they provided was burnt steak and overdone eggs that we swiftly sent back. We repeatedly asked for the manager who never came out. After hours of waiting, we finally got up and left. No one ever said sorry or called to apologize. By far the worst restaurant experience I've had. more

Lunch with a Movie? 7/3/2010

This place is in the trendy and beautiful people haven of the Meatpacking District but it is awesome AND is also known to be a haven for celebrity spotting. Nero D' Avola is not just a pretty Italian eatery with ""decent"" food- The food is exceptional, the bar is impressionable with its selections of spirits. Signature/ bartender creations are creative and WILL SNEAK UP ON YOU!!!! (If lucky you'll have the bar attended by Oliver, part Manager of Nero D' Avola and my buddy :*)). Oh & I failed to mention that you will get to view 40's & 50's circa movies, as they are shown on the projection exposed brick wall, which is Nero's trademark. I had my birthday party brunch at Nero D' Avola, which had exceptional attendance to my large party on their most busiest of days Sunday, so I say with applause and confidence that this is a great eatery. Must have: Chocolate filled pancakes, to DIE for!!!! Be watchful of: Fine print on the brunch menu... Enjoi!!!! Pros: Great pancakes and drinks- magnificent Cons: Long wait for Brunch on Sunday arrive EARLY more

One of the best Sunday brunch places in town! 6/9/2009

I have been three times and will be back. You have to know what you are in for - this isnt a quiet, simple Sunday brunch where you have coffee and read NY Times. My friends and I have dubbed it 'club brunch' - it is loud, great music, great food and high energy! Plus the unlimited drinks for the $29 price make it a great deal. I havent been for dinner on a regular night but will check it out. if you have out of town guests - take them - but be prepared! this aint your average Sunday brunch...and isnt for everyone. but it is a lot of fun! Pros: great food, select unlimited drinks, friendly staff Cons: wait for a table more

nightmare 4/30/2009

Wow! Music was so loud the restaurant received a noice complaint from the neighbors while we were there. we asked more than once for them to turn it down but they were rude and said if you don't like it you can leave. we did. Pros: unlimited drinks at brunch Cons: LOUD music, rude management more

Really, Nero? How about ZERO. 4/28/2009

Nothing can fully describe the ARROGANCE that I witnessed last Sunday. A simple request to turn the music down a notch or two - just to hear the person next to me - (and the request didn't come from just me or my table - but the surrounding tables as well) was answered with a FLIPPANT and APATHETIC ""No"" and MOCKING from the staff and djs. If we weren't decent people we would have stiffed them on the bill. Don't bother with your time or money here. Pros: At best location Cons: the Manager, DJs and Staff. Food - average more

This place is TERRIBLE! 4/28/2009

We just HATED our brunch at this place! The other reviewers are right: We had to yell to one another to even be heard at this place. They really ought to add Excedrin to their menu! Pros: Kinda Cheap (?) Cons: Horrible staff, terrible atmosphere more

If you're looking for Euro-Trash you've found it at Nero! 4/26/2009

If you would like to be assaulted in the eardrum by high volume electro dance trash while eating brunch then this is your place. There was a hair in my omelette and even though you get unlimited drinks which you will need to calm down the rage that starts to grow along with a migraine when you're having to scream a conversation to a friend sitting next to you. We asked management several times to turn down the music but they refused or would say they could not, I'm not sure how it is not possible to turn down music or how management could not give a care about the needs and wants of the customer. Then to add insult to injury in 86+ degree weather they closed the windows not to turn on the AC but so they would not receive a noise violation due to the atrociously loud and terrible music the brunch dj spun. BTW what kind of DJ only books brunches..lame! On the whole it was a very unpleasant experience and I still have a headache from it all - 8 hours later! I will never go back and I would never recommend it and if you love yourself on any level especially your eardrums and vocal chords you will avoid this place like the swine flu filled dirt hole that it is. Pros: there are no pros to this establishment Cons: terrible DJ, pathetic management, euro-trashy run more

poor service, surprise guests 4/26/2009

Beyond the obnoxious staff, I saw a rodent run through the restaurant during brunch. My cocktail was served in a glass with chipped edges. We asked if the music could be turned down and were refused. I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy. Pros: thank god its over Cons: terrible service, arrogant staff, rodents more

Reservations don't mean much in Manhattan anymore 10/19/2008

We had a 9pm reservation at Nero for Saturday night. Granted, it's Saturday night, and to seat 5 can be tough, but we waited a good 20 minutes for the table even though 2 other tables seemed to have come up. I stepped outside for some air not 3 minutes after first checking in and the hosted told me to have a nice night - clearly they don't pay much attention. After being seated, the staff was great. Very NYC see and be seen kind of spot with lots of groups there for dinner before hitting up bars. Though I was not impressed by the wine or food selection, it was prepared well. My friends all said ""best Italian they've had in years"". I didn't care for my meal but I'll chalk it up to my overall frustration from waiting. In short, don't go hear before a show, but a great place for a romantic dinner or for a group of good friends out for the night. Pros: Atmostphere, Location Cons: slow seating more

Great brunch! 3/25/2008

I'm very surprised by the last review- I came here for brunch and had a wonderful time. The service was so friendly I stopped to let the manager know how pleased I was on my way out. Everything was delicious- I had the eggs benedict and a fruit salad. To top it off all you can drink mimosas/bellinis for just $20! And they were not stingy with them in the least- every time my glass was almost empty before I could even ask it was filled again, to the point where I had to tell them no more b/c I had to work after. haha. I can't wait for the warm weather so I can have this enjoyable experience in their outdoor area! Pros: Unlimited mimosas, good food, exceptional service Cons: Dont get the unlimited special if you have to work after more

Best Food and Wine in the MP 5/18/2007

I am a wine fanatic and I was told that Nero had an ever changing wine list by the glass. I decided to try the place with a date. I was very surprised by the welcoming atmosphere and decor. we were seated promptly and had a look at both wine lists (by the glass and bottles) they feature about 20 Italian wines by the glass of which sixty percent very unknown to me. The sommelier/owner was very kind to give me quick notes on all the wines and after that he picked something for us. Amazing choice, which was also paired beautifully with our meal. Pros: Food, Wine, Service, Ambiance, Sommelier. Cons: At times can get a little noisy more

SIMPLY AWFUL!! 4/27/2007

I recently went to brunch at this dated and uninspired dining establishment. Outside of its location, it has nothing going for it. Nero is brought to you by the same people who own the equally tragic Intermezzo and Il Bastardo, both of which offer heapings of poor service and tasteless fare. On my most recent and last trip to Nero, the busboy spilled scalding hot coffee down my leg. My leg was burnt and my pants were permanently stained. The busboy immediately ran from the table, and when I went to speak with the manager (and owner), he simply rolled his eyes at me and said, ""I'm sure it was an accident"" and walked away. My friends and I ""used"" to be frequent diners at this dump, but we shall take our business to a restaurant offering proper service coupled with decent food. Cons: Poor service, even worse management, and tasteless food more

tuscany in the meat packing district 4/11/2007

This place has become one of my favorite dining spots in New York, the food and the wine list are a perfect match. Gino, the sommalier is a warm and charming person who knows his wines. The decor is rustic and inviting unlike some of the other dining establishments in the m.p. district. Give this place a visit and you will be pleasantly surprised. Pros: the delectable food and italian wines, the ambiance. Cons: always a wait for a table on the weekends, starts to get loud after 11 p.m. more

cute litte spot 3/11/2007

Randomly picked this place last night for dinner with a friend. The restaurant was tiny and very cute. Although our server was a little inexperienced (she didn't really seem to know wine or dishes to recommend), the food was very good. With food and two glasses of wine each, the bill came up to about $100, which I found very reasonable, especially compared to restaurants in the area. I will definitely go back. Pros: atmosphere Cons: inexperienced staff more

Very Good Authentic Northern Italian Food 3/10/2007

I just finished reading the other reviews and was shocked... we just got home after eating there at 6:30 on a Saturday night and without a reservation, we were seated immediately and told ahead of time that the table was needed for a reservation at 8:30 we said that was not a problem we were hungry and would certainly be out in 2 hours. We waited a short time for our appetizer and mine was delicious (3 mini meatballs atop of two polenta discs with a gorgonzola cream sauce), my main course was the pasta special: rigatoni al forno which was pasta with meat sauce and buffalo mozarella, just what I had been craving. My boyfriend was hungry... endive salad with beets, goat cheese and walnuts (he didn't love it), the special sea food risotto which was also delicious and the lamb chops. I must admit they didn't do too much with the chops but there were three decent size chops cooked the way he requested. We didn't have any room for dessert and no wine so the bill came to $110.00 with tip-reasonable I think for the neighborhood and the amount of food we received. The wait staff was attentive, not snotty and I guess it was too early to experience the DJ which was fine by me. Pros: Decent size portions, good service, resonably priced, good location more

Good Food, Nice Portions, Reasonably Priced Considering.... 3/4/2007

A girl friend and myself decided to check out a restaurant in the Meat Packing district on Saturday night. I'm a downtown Ny'er & expected the restaurant to serve small portions with a hefty price tag attached. We had no reservations & arrived about 8 PM. I expected a wait since it was Saturday night. I also expected the usual snooty attitude that usually gets served up with the meal in the newest trendy areas of the city. All my preconceived notions were blown away. We were seated immediately; within moments of being seated the wait staff arrived with bread & dipping & water [which is continuously filled during the course of the evening]. The waitress almost immediately came for our drink order - nice extensive wine selection. The only complaint I had is that I asked the waitress for a vodka & tonic & asked for the ""bar pour"". The Asian waitress didn't seem to understand the term bar pour - I found out at the end of the evening that she had gotten & charged me for Absolut: usually not considered a bar pour - if that was the case, I would have ordered Ketel One or Stoli. My girl friend, on the other hand, enjoyed the white wine the waitress had recommended. The portions were large - another expectation blown away - expected small portions considering the price & neighborhood. My friend had the calamari, smelt, & shrimp appetizer that came with a yummy mustard dip - really good. I ordered the sweet italian sausage with bok choi - was ok. Pros: Food, ambience, value for price, friendly & attentive wait staff Cons: Asian waitress needs to learn what the term bar pour means more

Great value for brunch 2/24/2007

I went to Nero last weekend to have brunch with my wife and a friend, and we were very pleased. The $20 prix fixe brunch was such a good deal! It basically included one dish and as many drinks as we could have for two hours--not bad at all! Despite what the price may suggest, the food was very good (not the greasy stuff some may call a typical brunch). This is a great value, specially in the Meat Packing District. I guess it is safe to say we will be going back soon. Pros: Value prix fixe brunch with wide selection more

terrible! 2/2/2007

I went with some friends for dinner tonight...boy was that a mistake! We had to wait almost 1 1/2 hours for our meals, and when they came, everything was cold and overcooked. Decor was nice. Service was ok...I think they were understaffed. Kitchen was a disaster! It was definitely one of the worst meals I've had in the city. Pros: decor Cons: everything else! more

fell short of my already low expectations 12/15/2006

I was a little hesitant to take my mother and brother there this evening, based on some of the reviews I'd read, but to my shame, I did. In a nutshell: 1) Waitress didn't know the menu - couldn't understand the names of the items in italian as read off the menu, wasn't sure if certain dishes were hot or cold. Thus, my mother had to send her appetizer back, being exactly the opposite of what she was told it would be. 2) My appetizer was weird. How you can screw up carpaccio is beyond me, but screw up they did, and my stomach paid for it about three hours later. To be specific, it was overly-cold and had a strange chemical taste, and shortly thereafter made a dramatic, hurried exit from my person in a hastily-sought restroom in midtown. 3) My entree, the skirt steak, was uninspiring and bland. 4) The mother's entree, the lamb, was tired, huge, and apparently met its death by boredom. 5) My brother loved his entree, the veal, and it was quite terrible also. Maybe anytime my brother likes something should send up a red flag. Pros: walls, ceiling, other examples of proven architecture Cons: food, service, rectal thunder shortly thereafter more

Great for parties 12/3/2006

We just went to Nero last night for my boyfriend's birthday party. Given that we were a party of 14 on a Saturday night, I was very worried we'd get there and have to wait for our table. It was great though, the second we arrived (on time) they sat us, even though we didn't have our entire party yet. They were also very good at being flexible in the advance period, as we called to revise the size of our reservation up and down. Pros: service, ambience more
