    Happy Hour is the best! $3 drafts and cheap appetizers. We ordered way too much food here and had to take a fair amount home (which made delicious leftovers). For $1, we got roasted olives in a bowl...I could've eaten that all night long. We also got Cheesy Garlic Bread. For entrees we tried the pesto pasta with meatballs, and the Fungji & Formaggio pizza. Everything we ate was delicious! And it was just as good the next day! The service was great - our server was knowledgeable about the food and helped us get creative in our pasta choice!

    Yum this place was good! Bunch of friends who live in town decided to try this place out with me while I was in town last. Had the burger since white american cheese was on the menu and it did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and took care of my preggers friends and one of their particularly needy husbands (sorry Ryan if you are reading this, but you know I love you, brah) Will definitely be back.

    The pizzas were okay, but not quite worth what we paid for them. They have some nice creative combinations, but they didn't wow me. To be honest, our dining experience was polluted by the woman in the next booth who had no concept of what "indoor voice" means, but that's auxiliary to this review. They do have a gluten free option, which was important to our guests. Service was done well.

    Nice evening out with family. Restaurant was busy yet we were seated right away. Drinks were prompt. Server was excellent. Took a little while for kids food, but not too long. Pizza was good. Sauce is original and delicious. Burger was good with quality meat. Bruschetta was tasty, but a little thick on the artichoke. Nice bar, nice atmosphere, and a great patio for cooler months.

    I really like Nellos Pizza. Their pizza is very good, but it doesn't stop there. I love their Pork Wings that are smoothered in a house mustard based buffalo sause. They have excellent tossed salads and tasty appatizers. Nice ambiance with a clean, nice, simple, Italian decor. Great place to grab dinner and a drink with family and friends.

    I used to live in The Tuk ( Ahwatukee) and missed Nello's. The tomato cheese bread was as good as I remembered. We got a side marinara to dip it in and it is well worth the side charge for it. Although they are known for their pizzas don't overlook the sandwiches and salads. I had the parlor burger. I got a medium it was so juicy and delicious and for my toppings I chose bacon, sautéed mushrooms, and their homemade mozzarella cheese. It was fantastic! The fries were not the hottest temp so they loose some zing, but that happens everywhere. The food runner dropped a cup of ketchup and it landed in the lap of the guest across from me. Some hit my shirt and there was a little bit tension but we laughed it off because the food was delicious. The tiramisu was good. I like it soggier but they are consistent. The only bad part. After the ketchup incident hitting over 66% of the people at the table no one came by to see if we were OK or ask if they could do anything for us. The food runner gave us a bunch of napkins but that was it. I'm guessing the food runner didn't tell the server or a manager. I only rate places on food, not service so they still got 4 stars.

    Ive been a a couple of locations but this one is the best by far! The food was so delicious. The service was good, attentive but not annoying. The Chefs Board was really good, had enough to share with 4 people. We also had the pork wings, who knew pigs had wings, I am sure glad I know now, they were amazing!

  • Sarah L.

    The food here is always amaze and the wine list is wonderful. I've come here for years since it opened in Ahwatukee and over the years the menu has gotten better and the service has gotten worse. Every time we come we hope we'll get get good service and we don't. We sit and wait for a check in after we receive our food, no refills on drinks or clearing empty plates. They don't up sell in any way, if you want dessert or another glass of wine or beer, good luck. We keep coming because it's a family favorite for many years but ugh it's always a disappointment in some way. Such a bummer.

    Been going to Nello's for years, but after last night, I'm taking some time off and spending my pizza $ elsewhere. Not crowded, table for 3 in the bar....2 entrees came out quickly while I waited for a woodfired pizza. My wife's salad was missing the pancetta as advertised. My pizza finally arrived but was made incorrectly...I was told no problem, we'll make another one....waited, waited and bingo ANOTHER wrong pizza - this time it wasn't even close. After 2 hours I asked for the check and I'm gone. Nello's get it together please and do something about your pizza dough - it's like cardboard lately. Headed to Florencia for a while....and so is my $.

  • Lindsay H.

    Love the food here but the service is hit or miss. Can be very slow and take quite a while to get any service. Go at non-noon hour for lunch(it gets crazy busy) and get the individual pizza special. Fairly large, 2-topping pizza, a drink and a side salad for $10! I always have leftovers and the side salad is large and somewhat unique. Lots of veggies and they swirl cut(is this a thing?) the carrot strips. Try their unique ranch and house dressing, mixed. Yummo!

    Amazing pizza with incredible flavor!! Also the place was very clean and the atmosphere was awesome. Had a cannoli for dessert too which was delicious

    I just tried this place last night and it was amazing! The pizza really has its own "taste" to it and is delicious. Got the thin crust deluxe and loved it. The staff is amazing there! Even though we got there at 9pm (their closing time during the week), they still seated us and gave us great service! We didn't leave until 10:30pm! They were great! Go there, it won't disappoint!!

    4.5 stars. Great little neighborhood pizza spot. Great happy hour, $5 glasses of wine, & cheap draft beer. Wood fired thin crust pizza is amazing. Went back and ordered take out and got regular pizza, but we prefer the thin crust. Regardless, the BBQ chicken flavor was fantastic. Best part was the cannoli's we got for dessert. Yummy!

    This is one of those rare times that I'm not in line with popular Yelp opinion. Guys, I'm not sure what the heck I'm missing here. I've tried two Pizzas here: the BBQ Chicken and the Vegetarian. Both pizzas were beautifully presented but they were equally bland as pretty. I must admit the Old World Salad is good but I don't think I'll come back for just the salad "shrugs". I like the location and the dining room is nice but it' LOUD in here. I'm just not sure what the hype is about, I think I'll pass on the flavorless pretty pizza.

  • Bella C.

    Love. Love. Love. Recently moving to the Chandler area, I have been following yelp reviews from restaurant to restaurant. Many of the 4 and 5 star reviews I have found to be odd after visiting the restaurant. Frankly, it's been really hard to find a really good restaurant that actually makes it's own food. Finally, I have my pizza place. And my great salad place. A little farther from home than I would like, but this place is absolutely worth the drive. My only complaint is that the women's bathroom desperately needs remodeled. It's so old that the caulk around tile is just black in places and it doesn't look clean. The soap and paper towel dispenser were difficult to operate....just too old.

    Went here for a quick meal before an appointment. Seated by the hostess, no server or manager acknowledged me within the give minutes I was there. I walked out, plain and simple. Nice to see the continual decline of good food and service in restaurants. I'll never return here. Thanks Nello's!!!

    Chicago style pizza with thick crust & deep toppings. We also ordered spinach salad. It was very fresh. The creamy poppyseed dressing is a local fave. Outdoor patio under a red awning lined with the ubiquitous misters is perfect for a casual, Friday night out.

  • Shayna R.

    I just moved to ahwatukee recently and ate here with my husband yesterday for the first time. We ordered a small pizza with bacon , delish! And baked ziti . They have huge portions so we had alot of food left over. But very very good. We will def come back again.

  • John S.

    I really expected to give Nellos a good review but its not that great, not sure if they were in a hurry when they made our pizza but it was lacking in a descent quantity of ingredients we ordered on it we ordered a large pizza with mushrooms, onions, green peppers and pepperoni. One piece out of the whole pizza seamed adequately filled with ingredients. Way to much crust. May come back may not. The bottled beer was $3 also sadly not impressed.

  • Ainee B.

    The service was great. The atmosphere was wonderful. I ordered garden salad with house dressing and it was fresh. I ate pizza Margarita and classic European and both were awesome. Ask for Alfredo sauce deeping to finish your pizza crush. Last treat was a tiramisu. This one, I considered good but ok... Overall, I would like to go back to try something else.

  • Chuck R.

    The nearby Zip's has hit Nello's business very hard. Nello's was pretty empty between 5 and 6 pm but then started to get a little busy as we left around 6:15. The crowd is a shadow of Nello's pre-Zip's throng. But this is all a good thing for diners, because Nello's food, beer, and service are as solid as ever. Pizzas are wonderful and beer selections nice. They even had Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA. Keep it up guys. Zip's is a blah place and loyal Nello's diners will surely be back.

    We ordered the Caprese for an appetizer and it was delicious. My husband ordered eggplant Parmesan and I had the chicken marsala we both really enjoyed our meals and even better the price was so reasonable we were shocked. He is a picky New Yorker when it comes to Italian food but he said he would go out of his way to come back to eat here.

  • Carrie K.

    I have been going to the Nello's in tukee for over 10 years. My favorites are their spinach salad with their house dressing, garlic bread with tomatoes, and European pizza. They have delicious food, personable service (everyone who works there is happy to be there), and very reasonable prices. Bummed they are closed for Sunday lunch though. :(

    Love the Old World salad. Add Garlic bread and some wine and you have a nice light meal.

    Service has always been amazing. From time to time it may get busy and it can be a little slow but that can be expected anywhere and it doesn't bother me much if the waiter or waitress are nice! The Pizza is awesome and Salad are amazing. It's now one of my favorite places to go for Pizza.

    Andrew was my server and he brought a fun atmosphere to my dinner date, I forgot my card and he bought my meal and with a wink and a good heart I wasn't embarrassed in front of my now girl friend, I still come back and I make sure to tip him extra well, great food great service!

    Great place, the food and wait staff are great. You can tell they really work hard and focus on producing a great meal. Haven't been disappointed in all the years I've been going besides having to wait for a table every once in awhile. Their specials are great and complex, I really can't say enough.

  • joe i.

    Still a five star place in my opinion. Great service, draft beer, salads and flat crust pizza. The salmon arugula salad is awesome and the market thin crust usually is as well. Very accommodating for children too!

  • Michael M.

    Definitely one of the best pizza places in ahwatukee. One thing that helps them stand out is their house sauce. Order it on the side with any pizza and you will be begging for more!

    I am reminded of what a really good pizza is supposed to taste like whenever we pop in here. Tonight we had a market salad with kale/berries/nuts which was really delicious. This evening's special pizza was a real treat....homemade sausage with balsamic reduction drizzle, then topped with pepperoni and other fantastically fresh ingredients. Very accommodating staff who provide excellent service and even turned the heaters on for us - the only diners on the patio (for awhile). Love this family restaurant who serves fresh, tasty food.

  • Kelly H.

    My family loves to eat at Nellos. The Happy Hour prices make dining out with kids easier on the budget and we've always had good to great customer service. The food clinches the five star review for me...always delicious and the Market options keep things interesting!

    (5)
  • Anthony D.

    Decent neighborhood joint, for dining with the family. I find it a bit pricey, for the quality you get, but it is what it is when you have so few decent dining options in Ahwatukee. It makes for a decent farewell dinner after each of my AZ visits, else I'd never eat here. I do like their chopped chicken salad.

  • Kim B.

    I've lived in Phoenix for a year and have yet to find a pizza place worth talking about (I'm from Chicago...nothing compares). I decided to give this place a try last night. It was delicious! I loved the atmosphere...had an upscale-ish décor but not too yuppie to make you feel uncomfortable for wearing jeans (our server had on a black tee shirt and a baseball cap. The server was very personable, we never had empty drinks, and knew his way around the menu, which was great, as we had never been there before. We got the Caprese for an app, and since my bf and I have opposite tastes in pizza, we each ordered our own so we could get what we wanted and have leftovers. We could tell it was starting to get really busy, and a line was forming out the door, but the server made sure to stop by often, and not make us feel rushed as we sat for a few minutes finishing our beers. Their ingredients were fresh and more than you can get at most pizza places (an awesome variety of cheeses to choose from, and everything from regular veggies to shrimp or salmon!). For 2 people our bill ran just under $60, which was totally reasonable for an app, drinks, and 2 pizzas. I will definitely be returning and recommending to my friends!

  • Andre M.

    Absolutely the best pizza sauce in the entire valley - which makes for the best pizza and meatball subs. What more to say? This is my favorite pizza joint.

  • Annette D.

    We've been going to Nello's since we moved to Ahwatukee. Their pizza is awesome! Make sure you get there early on Friday nights, otherwise you may have to wait some time to be seated. But it's worth the wait!

  • Monique H.

    I have this taste in my mouth of what a margherita pizza should taste like. I've been in search of it for years. Sadly, this place did not measure up to what I had in mind but it was still delicious pizza. Everything taste fresh, the sauce, the dough, the toppings, yum! I've been here twice, once for lunch and another time for a takeout order. Everything went smoothly on the take out order, while I waited I got to see the kitchen staff in action, they really work hard! When I came in for a sit down meal, the food and service were great. It did take a long time to get our food though so I don't recommend coming here for lunch if you're on a time crunch. They get very busy.

    (4)
  • Kerri F.

    I can't believe I have never eaten here before, the food is amazing! We had the eggplant bruschetta, spinach salad with bacon and the spinach pizza pie. The bacon on the salad was the whole strips of perfect bacon, totally delicious. The sauce on the pizza was nice, and the crust was nice and crunchy. Service was great as well. I will be going back soon to try more of the huge selection.

    Nello's Pizza in Ahwatukee....sometimes very crowded, but always worth the wait. I cannot speak for the rest of the menu, but I can say that any kind of pizza you order here is going to be excellent. We have been enjoying Nello's for years and have never had a bad or questionable pie. Nello's offers a pretty good selection of beers...and there are usually a couple of rotating taps that pour local craft favorites. The atmosphere is typically bustling, oftentimes loud inside during rush hours...which is probably why we enjoy coming here when we are dining with our kids. I'd definitely recommend Nello's and often bring out of town visitors in for a pie. It's close by too, which is an added convenience.

    Nellos is my local neighborhood pizza restaurant / bar. It has a nice atmosphere and pretty good pizza. They have nice patio out back when the weather is nice too. While it is not my favorite pizza in the area, I keep coming back for the excellent customer service and ambiance.

    While passing through Phoenix on the way to Cali with my hubby yesterday we stopped in and ordered a BBQ chicken pizza. We out pizza lovers so would never turn one down however given the high rave reviews expected a bit better. Our pizza was good but was skimpy on the toppings and a little on the dry side. It may have been due to the type of cheese that was used and the lack of enough BBQ sauce to make up for the consistency of the cheese (which was not mozzarella) . As i said, I love pizza so still enjoyed it and like the flavor. I would probably go again but try something different. The service was also very good both in attentiveness and speed of delivery.

    Tried Nello's for first time tonight & definitely not impressed... cheese pizza way too salty and at room temp cheese hard and looked like plastic. Ate one piece and threw the rest out.

  • Mike Z.

    I've never actually dined in here, but have ordered takeout a half dozen times. Their pizza is solid. The Hawaiian was good, with thick hunks of pineapple. The sausage and artichokes was good but disappointing in that the 'chokes didn't have much flavor. A more marinated artichoke would have been preferable. The Deluxe Combo has been my favorite, have had it a few times. I've had both the thin and original crust, and I much prefer their thin (which is cut into Chicago squares, btw, while the original is slices). Their lasagna was very good. I highly recommend it. Bit disappointed though that ordering it takeout it didn't come with even a small wedge of garlic toast :(

  • Steffany H.

    I grew up around the corner from this place so it's kinda my neighborhood pizza spot. I've only had the pizza and salads but everything I've seen come out of that kitchen looks amazing! Nello's is really known for their deep dish pizza and its my absolute favorite. We order a ton of toppings and its always the perfect ratio for a balanced pizza. I've only come in for pickup so I can't speak to service eating there, but I'm always immediately greeted by someone when I walk in to pickup. The salads are all well done and my favorite is the chicken gorgonzola salad with their house raspberry vinaigrette dressing. I haven't had one I didn't like. They also have great tvs and I'd def come in for a game. If you live close, walk down to Nellie's. I love this neighborhood and this place!

    With gluten-free pizza available and great toppings, including goat cheese...the choices are limitless. The Old World Traditional salad is so good and filling. Service is a bit spotty, but three can eat well for the cost and quality here. Feels good to support a local biz than go to some mass corp biz. Now, go and enjoy.

  • Carlos T.

    I love this place. Antipasto salad and a glass of red wine is my favorite meal. Everything from the pizza, salads and sandwiches are amazing. I'm the biggest Arnold Palmer drink fan and this place just knows how to serve it. The staff is always friendly and will go above to make sure your visit is great. Out of the 500+ restaurants in Phoenix, Nello's is my favorite. I call it, "The Italian mother I never had restaurant." They are only open until 10pm so make sure you arrive early in the evening. If you want to continue drinking after dinner, Zipps is right next door!

    6/15/10 Friend and I ordered take-out: an Arugula salmon couscous salad and a small Four cheese (mozz, romano, fontinella, and feta). I believe I also requested ricotta on it. The salad was excellent, although I wished all of the ingredients used were listed on the menu- I had to fish out a couple of troublesome items. The pizza was fantastic! And this was after we let it sit for awhile. (I love my thin-crust pizzas hot, very crispy and fresh-- not cold nor stale, and if it's the least bit soggy, I am heartbroken.) But Nello's was definitely a hit tonight! I kicked myself for waiting all this time to go back for another taste. I'll be returning VERY soon!

    I have been a fan of Nellos for about 5 years now. The pizza is phenomenal, their draft beer selection is great and they have Rombauer every so often (which is one of my favorite vineyards). I also love their entrees, especially the lasagna. I no longer live in the Ahwatukee area but I make it a point to go back for Nellos!

    We were regulars here. It was a short walk from home and worth every step. Wonderful pizza, both traditional and non traditional. The pasta and starters are great as well. Wonderful staff fast courteous service. They also have a very efficient pick up counter. If you are in the area, don't look for the chain pizza places. Go to Nello's

    Great atmosphere and the food was enjoyable. Went on a busy Friday night and it seemed like the service and food preparation suffered a little. Staff was friends and helpful, just not as attentive as you'd like to see, even on a really busy evening. I may just be partial to the Tempe location on McClintock where I've loved the food since my high school lunch days, way back to '96. I think I'll head there next time I get that uniquely distinct Nello's pizza craving.

    Nello's, You never fail us. The hostess always greets us enthusiastically with a smile. The servers are prompt and attentive. The food is consistently delicious. The feeling you get at this location is very close knit and neighborly. Well done and thank you. It is hard to find places where you feel the money you spend on a dinner out is really worth it. It is always worth it with you.

    Great deep dish Chicago-style pizza, wonderful fresh salads and a great atmosphere make Nello's a local staple pizzeria. Staff is friendly, prices are right, and you can take advantage of M-F lunch special - $10 for a mini 2-topping pizza, salad, and large drink. It's a lot of food for a great price. This place is very kid friendly as well - they have a nice kid's menu with plenty of options, or they can simply eat of your order!

    Met a group of people...great craft beer selection.. ordered Old World Salad w/House Dressing, excellent.. enough to feed 2-4 people.. then the Murphy pizza.. applewood smoked bacon and onions w/the thin crust, wood fired. This is an awesome pizza. The rest of the group got various pizzas and loved everything! Our waitress was great, and took good care of us..

  • Scott G.

    Nice atmosphere and everything. I think I have been there at least 6 or 7 times and the last 3 or 4, they were out of the wheat crust. It's one of my favorite things and they are ALWAYS out of it. You would think that if you are always running out, you would make more, right? But in the end, the food is good. Service is good enough. Probably should be a 4 star rating, but the "out of wheat crust" thing really frustrates me and I will likely not go back.

  • Kristin B.

    Love this place! Pizza is outstanding. Service - excellent. Decor - comfortable and clean. Tried a bruschetta sampler and have to admit it wasn't as good as it could be. The toppings were fine. The toast wasn't. Normally, bruschetta is served on lightly toasted, thickly sliced bread that is crunchy on the edges and softer in the center. This version was served on what amounted to a large crouton. Completely hard and not very tasty. The waiter assured me the "bread" was made in house but I suspect that's not the case. I think it's purchased in a pre-toasted, fully-realized crouton state. Either way, the pizza more than made up for the appetizer! I chose the Yukon Gold pizza which comes with VERY thinly sliced potatoes, pancetta, gorgonzola, mozz, rosemary, and olive oil - a white pizza. I'm a vegetarian and they are SUPER nice about customizing. I asked for mushrooms instead of pancetta, and added onions. It was outstanding! Wonderful, Neapolitan style crust perfectly baked in a wood fired oven. One of the best pizzas I've ever had, actually. The rosemary was fresh, not dried which made a huge difference. I love a restaurant that stays open all day and just has a single menu, not lunch and dinner. Another plus for Nello's. I visit Phoenix every year and I will make this place part of every trip.

  • Mike D.

    I eat here pretty much weekly. The pizzas are awesome (especially the wood fired ones) and the rest of the menu is no different. The salads are awesome and large, the bruschetta is solid, and the tiramisu...oh, the tiramisu. Save room for it. The beer selection is great and if you're in the neighborhood during happy hour, make sure to stop in. There are some great deals (1/2 off apps, cheap drinks).

    This is the only pizza place I will dine in or order take out from. I'm very picky about what I eat; a total food snob. I love their pizza! I always order their pepperoni and mushroom deep dish pizza!! The servers are always friendly and the prices are very reasonable. You can't go wrong here, everything is good!

    Always a great place to come for good food and some ambiance. Pizza is good, even without getting the usual meat style (I'm not a vegetarian at all) wait times can be long especially with a lot if other places nearby opening up.

    I am here so much, I have to give them that fifth star! While the pizza might not be unanimously voted the best in all of the world (although it has received plenty of recognition), it is still pretty effing good. They have great combinations of quality toppings. I love the thin crust, I love they have a different, creative market special every week. They have Four Peaks on tap. $3 Guinness on Happy Hour. The salads are delicious. I crave the house dressing and the white balsamic. The staff is top notch, totally cool and friendly, and really take the time to get to know their customers. It is great for families, for cool, casual dates, and low-key gathering of friends. This is combination of qualities, and the fact that I am usually there once a week, Nello's in Ahwatukee really is as good as it gets and will continue to be one of my go-to restaurants.

    A local favorite for years that has slowly been straying away from classic dishes to make room for some more adventurous tastes. Everything is good but try their bruschettas, my favorite being the PBJ bruschetta. Very interesting!

    Very Bland, Poor Tasting Pizza! Does NOT live up to the Hype!!!! This was the first and probably last visit to Nellos. This pizza does not live up to all the hype here on Yelp. I ordered a pizza with black olives and beef. I had the "original" crust. The crust was thick, chewy and tasteless. It looked as thought it was put on a conveyer oven, not woodfired. After the second slice the crust became too hard, bland and chewy to even eat, like cardboard. It was a very bad product. The sauce was very bland, and it looked very much like a frozen pizza, except some frozen pizzas are better. I really don't understand the pizza market in Phoenix. I grew up in on authentic Italian pizza and cuisine, albeit here in Phoenix everyone seems to sing high praises to very bad pizzas. This pizza does not even compare to a good Pizza. I just think that the folks here in Phoenix haven't tasted a real pizza, If they travel back East and try the pizza then they would know what real Pizza Pie is supposed to taste like. For now if I want a good Pizza Pie, I'll just have to make it my self. I would not recommend this place to anyone. One Star for the Food, One Star for the Service (Service was good, Pizza Bad)

    The wood fired pizzas are so good - for dinner, and the next day for breakfast. :) They also have one of the best tiramisus I've ever tasted.

    Love the happy hour - half off appies and $3 micro brew pints. Go for the pizza crust with cheese for $3.25 - basically a deconstructed cheese pizza for 1/4 the price. Meat and cheese board is also great and very filling. Spring for the wood fired za (Shriners Pavone Pepperoni is a personal favorite), but don't come before 5pm as they will still be stoking the hardwood flames. I have a dream of someday locking down one of the 3 high top tables in the bar area, always taken by regulars that seem to live there. I have tried almost all the menu items and have yet to be disappointed. Service is always great - Cody is top notch, high energy and knows his brews. If Shaun White and the dude waiter from Chotchkie's (Office Space) had a baby, it would be him...

    A favorite of mine. I had discovered Nello's back when I lived in Ahwatukee during my college days. I would dine in and take out. It was that good. The atmosphere is great. The service is great. The food is great. I dropped in there today, for old times sake, and it was still just as good. I had the lunch special which was a house salad with their signature tomato basil based vinagrette, an 8" pizza with homemade sausage and mushrooms, and a Diet Coke. All for $9.95! What a deal! If you want quality pizza, go to Nello's.

    I had the BEST experience at Nello's this past weekend. I have been coming to this location for a while, and finally got around to writing a review. The menu has some similar items to the sister restaurant "The Parlor" which is a good thing. the staff is on top of things and we got a great wine recommendation from Cody. This is my go-to place when I have guests in town for an all around great dining experience. Don't forget to try the chopped chicken salad, it is amazing!

  • Michael W.

    I have not eaten in the restaurant in a long time because I like to order my pizza to go. I usually get a movie and pop it in and sit back and enjoy a few slices. Too bad the Blockbuster that was next door is closed... now I have to stop by Basha's for the movie.... Usually we get the margherita pizza because I eat with family members who are vegetarians. They always have Nello's add extra garlic to the pizza which is not a fave of mine, there is enough on it without adding extra, but that isn't Nello's fault... it's crazy Vegetarians trying to make up for the lack of tasty tasty meat. Hehe JK. A different pizza that I enjoy with omnivore's is their bbq chicken pizza. It is always tasty and I am kind of full of sadness as I write about it. It has been too long since I have had that pizza! I wish I could remember the other 2 pizza's I have tried and liked but I am not sure which ones they are. Oh well. I might just have to go and update this in the near future. One thing I really like about going there to dine is that they have a great beer selection that includes a few AZ brews. I am just trying to be semi-economical lately and eating at home allows the beer and wine to be cheaper. Plus no tip is really needed, although I usually give the take out gal a buck.

    My husband and I went here tonight but unlike most of the reviewers, we did not order pizza. We started off with the eggplant bruchetta which was phenomenal. My husband got the chicken pesto which he says was the best pesto he's ever had. I ordered the lasagne which was also very good though I will say you really have to really like ricotta cheese in order to enjoy it. This place has great food and service and I really love the fact that they have so many microbrews on tap and wines by the glass at reasonable prices.

    I really enjoy Nello's. Never had a bad experience. The food is always good, the service very friendly and knowledgeable, and the prices are reasonable. The problem is that my husand never wants to go there. He says that there are other pizza places that he (and admitedly, I too) prefers so we often skip it, even though it is just down the street. Panninis and salads are very good, in addition to their pizza, btw.

    Love, love, love Nellos! This location is definitely different from the rest, the servers are wonderful, they are always uber busy BUT seem to always slide you right on into a table with a very minimal wait if any at all. It always looks worse than it is due to the take out counter I think. The margarita pizza is the best! Try it out you will be glad you did!

    It has been over 1 year since I have been back and the pizza was so good, why did I wait that long???? Four cheese thin pizza! OMG!!!! It is cooked (or baked) to perfection.

    Great pizza and good service! My "Murphys" pizza on wheat crust came with onions and bacon. It was very flavorful. I thought the wheat crust was delicious. It had a hardy, yet sweet flavor. The pizza was a perfect combination. I look forward to returning soon!

    Stopped in the Friday after Thanksgiving. The wife and I were driving aimlessly looking for something new in Ahwatukee ( Been there done that before), when we happened upon Nello's. Nice atmosphere, great service and a surprisingly good dining experience awaited. We didn't want to fill up after the previous days eating frenzy so we shared an Antipasto Salad that was, like the menu stated more than enough for 2. Also ordered a mozzarella plate with veggies and tomatoes and olives and some nice crusted bread. Could not be happier. They have a wide selection of beers, of which I enjoyed a few pints. Thank you Nellos for a nice evening with my better half. We will be back.

    Nello's is pretty darn wonderful - more than a strict sauce slicked pie joint in that some of their creations are pushing the culinary envelope. I've actually Googled some of their specialty toppings at the table to figure out what they are, the cheeses so specific to regions around the world that you'll want to learn more on why they are notable. Original crust is thick and buttery, yielding heavy toppings and tender strands of mozzarella. I'm a big fan of the Schriers pepperoni on a margherita pizza, laden with fresh garlic and torn basil. Salads are hearty and plentiful, with a killer Spinach Salad (crisp bacon, egg, crunchy radishes and grape tomatoes) and White Balsamic Dressing. Waitstaff at this location are bustling while still managing to be endearing. Service can get spotty on weekends when the place crowds a bit, but on two separate occasions where mistakes were made, the manager corrected both immediately with not only no charges for the items but still sending the ordered items. We've actually left with two pizzas in hand - totally unasked for but very appreciated. I don't really compare the pizza here to other thin-crust pies - it's so specific of a taste, it's almost its own thing. That all being said, it's such a yummy experience, if you don't pigeonhole the pizza, you are in for a treat.

  • Brian S.

    I love Nello's. I'd like to write something prettier, something poetic. It's one of my favorite pizza places, and it deserves a little wordsmithery. But I'm too sated on deep-dish deliciousness to muster up my usual silver-tongued sweetness. If you like Chicago-style pizza (and I do) made fresh with quality ingredients in generous portions, try Nello's. Their Hawaiian pizza is excellent. Any of their pizzas are, really. Or you could smear some tomato paste and plasticky cheese on a piece of charred cardboard and call it "pizza". It works for Domino's, after all.

    Nello's is just down the street from us, so it has been a family favorite for years. We always enjoy a meal here! Our family hasn't chosen as to which type of pizza we prefer, Chicago, New York, California, etc. We know we like fresh ingredients, crispy crust, lots of cheese and cold drinks. You definitely get all that and great service at Nello's. Fresh pizza does take a while longer to prepare than chain par-baked dough. The salads are huge and are full of flavor. An there's always a favorite on tap. We enjoyed the Four Peaks Peach Ale. Nello's just added a Bambino's Menu, fantastic now they have some great kid's size meals for the little ones to enjoy too!

  • Heather W.

    My boyfriend introduced me to Nello's a couple of years ago and ever since then I've been hooked. I must say I am very picky when it comes to food and this place is great! I love the crust of the pizza. It's different than every other pizza place there is out there. It is very inexpensive too. My boyfriend always gets a salad, we share a pizza (half cheese and half applewood smoked bacon) and have an appetizer and we are usually out of there for 18 to 22 bucks before tip. I usually sit outside when I go because it is really loud inside. It's really nice outside and for the winter months (even though it's really not super cold here) they have heaters. The reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because we had a rude waiter once. Since we have been there so many times and it was only one time, I'm still a major fan! I would recommend this place to anybody who likes pizza and wants a change from the everyday pizza chains that are out there.

    It may not be the best pizza in the valley. But it's damn close. It's not some pretentious overpriced hipster joint where your expectations are unreasonable. The pizza is very good as are the salads. Great comfortable neighborhood place with good service and servers who are always friendly and willing to get you what you want. Crowded at times and the bar could be bigger. But that's because it's just a cool place to hang out for pizza and beer. I also believe that the owners take care of their employees only because I've seen many if them there for years and they seem happy still.

  • William R.

    We ordered a pizza for take out on a Sunday night. They said it would be ready in fifteen minutes and when I got there it was already done. The pizza was OK and definitely better than Domino's, even with their new spiffy recipe. We got the veggie pizza, which sounded better than what we actually got. The end product looked great, but I think maybe there are too many toppings for the crust to hold. The crust ended up a little soggy, especially towards the center, and the sauce seemed to have been absorbed by the toppings save around the outside of the pizza. Despite this, the pizza was edible and I'll probably order from them again at some point. Instead of getting their veggie pizza, I'll probably pick my own toppings and simplify things a little. Hopefully that will solve the soggy-no-sauciness problem.

  • Jeffrey K.

    Anticipating the pizza craving that I always get after happy hour I'm going to pre-order a 10" original deep dish, mushrooms, spinach, and homemade sausage from the nearby Nellos for tonight. Nellos crust, on any occasion, is one of my favorites. There's something magical about it. The bottom of the crust is just firm and thick enough to withstand the weight of the fresh and flavorful toppings. The combination of the bottom of the crust and the fresh and homemade toppings is just the beginning. The edge of the crust steals the show. The light and dark gold color's of the edge draws you in right away. Each bite starts off crunchy to the tooth and ends with a soft and chewy melt in your mouth dough. The crust is a big component on why their pizza is so delicious. I've only been to their Ahwatukee location but I'm sure the other locations are just as good. Their pizzas and their tiramisu are worth 4-5 stars but everything else on their menu is just ok. But who needs to try anything else when you have crust like they do.

If your in to pasta, the Alfredo sauce is amazing! We love the atmosphere at the restaurant. Service is great! The servers are all very friendly and attentive.

Everyone is so friendly and they even know my sister and I by name (and order) :) We love the Classic European pizza and our new fave is to get it with an order of garlic bread with cheese and tomatoes - yum! Can't go wrong with good, quality pizza and great service with a smile!

    The pizza here, in my opinion, is pretty average compared to other pizzas around the Valley, though they do get bonus points for smoky crusts and fresh ingredients. What bumps this place from three to four stars for me is the spinach salad with the house dressing. It is, by far, one of the best salads I've ever had in these great States. Strips of applewood smoked bacon. Need I say more?

  • Nate M.

    This is some of the best pizza I have ever had! We had the Delux Combo. The meats in the pizza were what made the pizza amazing. They had that spicy Italian taste to it. This was complimented nicely by the the thick cheese and fantastic dough. I can't wait to try their other pizzas!

    Normally Nello's to-go lunch is great - not today! My co-worker found a worm in her half turkey club sandwich! We called and talked to Shea the manager who condescendingly said that although Nello's washes their lettuce they can't help that a worm won't get off the lettuce. Now we know the little green worm is quite little, but we are particular that our protein intake not be alive and moving. With all the lunch providers in Ahwatukee and with the holiday season you would think Nello's may have been apologetic and even a little generous. We weren't expecting our entire $40 ticket to be comped, but when we asked if I could receive some compensation, Shea responded by saying they can replace the half sandwich/salad if my co-worker came back in that day. Not even an apology and a $10 gift card. I guess the Ahwatukee Nello's has a manager who doesn't really believe in a high level of customer service. I wouldn't have posted this if she would have been a bit kinder in her tone and generous by only a few more dollars. It really is all about how people are treated - I hope Shea's staff is treated better than we were.

    If I could have their salad forever my life would be complete. It has chickpeas, artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, cucumber, feta and the most amazing house dressing....for months I went here thinking the Classic Euro pizza was the end all be all but that salad changed my world. Side note: don't sit at those little tables by the bar, it really ruins the experience. Slight annoyance, there are coupons for Nello's in the entertainment book, but they wont work at this location.

    After hearing about this place and them having award winning pizza I was pretty hyped coming to this place. Living only a mile away, why not, right? I took my gf and it was just a leisure thursday, not alot of people there. The waitress was nice and we were seated right away, ordered the Hawaiin style pizza... I completely understand ordering good food and expecting to wait for it, but this was OUTRAGEOUS!! It nearly took a hour to cook this pizza - I personally saw the people who came in at the same time as us - enjoy their pizza and leave!?! When the pizza arrived it sure didn't look properly cooked nor enticing. But I never judge a book by its cover... so we dug in... considering all the hype I've heard about this I expected better. Sadly I prefered pizza hut over this place that day.

    I tried Nello's for the first time today and I was impressed. I love the personal pan size pizzas because I was able to have my tomatoes, onions, garlic, and basil on mine while my boyfriend has plain pepperoni. The pizzas were tasty and the toppings were very fresh. The employees that helped were so friendly and very personable! I noticed they have a happy hour so I will definitely go back to try that!

    Scale of 1-10 (single visit): 5 Food 7 Service 7 Atmosphere 6 Value Upon first walking in it smelled like a Mr. Gatti's. Now, I love Mr. Gatti's (do any even still exist?), so that's not an insult, except that that smell means to me that I should be getting big food for little money, and that wasn't the case. I wasn't even expecting that much, and this place failed. The server was nice enough and well timed though he didn't ask if we'd ever been there before to offer some info. Then the food came out. With the exception of a hum-drum tomato sauce on our veggie "thinbread" pizza, the flavors were excellent. The house dressing on the salad was great, and my European "deepdish" (no tomato sauce) tasted superb. But let me backup - it's not a deepdish. AT ALL. It's a normal pizza with bread walls. And the thincrust wasn't a thincrust either!! They were both just normal pizzas. EPIC FAIL. Deepdish should require a fork and a knife. I used my hands, easily. Therefore I received half the food I was expecting. On the upside, they offer half-pitchers of Oak Creek beers, which is a big win. That and the flavors on my European were all that stood between this place and one less star. The only people that can possibly rate this place well have never had a real thincrust or deepdish pizza.

    I love pizza and this is not bad but overrated to me. My friend from Boston she loves this pie because they cut it into squares and it reminds her of pie from a chain back in Beantown. I think it is just ok. Kind of bland, a little pricey. Good for out here I guess, but not really that good.

    Go for the thin crust! Overall experience was wonderful, service was attentive, straight to the point and not smothery. Food at this local pizza joint is high quality you can taste. As a chef dining out for a casual lunch, I left pleased and with cash still in my pocket. First we had the Roasted Eggplant Bruschetta, the baguette was toasted to perfection. The crust was crisp with a nice light sourdough flavor and chew, not over toasted a bit and still tender on the inside. The four baguettes were topped with a beautiful creamy, tangy goat cheese. The eggplant was beautifully roasted and naturally rich in flavor. Sun-dried tomatoes added a nice acid element to this dish, which was served warm with a well balanced Balsamic Reduction. Next we tried the Smoked Chicken and Broccoli Pizza. The crust, oh gosh. THE CRUST! Perfect. Thin and crunchy, tender, caramelized in the wood burning oven to a perfect golden brown. The smoked chicken was still moist, the broccoli still had a nice bite to it as all vegetables should and had a fantastic roasted flavor. No sauce here, just a little olive oil and garlic went down before the toppings. The Mozzarella and Smoked Provolone were appropriate, but a nice nutty Asiago or Parmesan-Reggiano would have been a welcome touch. Bacon? Of course we added bacon! An Applewood Smoked Bacon. Although in recent years bacon, and especially Applewood Smoked has been overplayed in the culinary world, Nello's kept it organic in style. The bacon has a wonderful fatty crunch, just the right balance of salt and smoke and cooked just so. The half slabs of thick, delicious bacon were simply laid over our pizza towards the end of cooking. Very pleased this bacon wasn't chopped up into tiny bits. The Banana-Nut Bread Pudding was tempting but Tiramisu has my heart. Being half Italian I know Tiramisu and Nello's has made a great play on this classic dessert. First a thick layer of creamy mascarpone was sweetened to not over power the cheese itself. The ladyfinger layer held its integrity and wasn't soaked to the point of sogginess which is a pleasant surprise. Another generous layer of mascarpone and a surprisingly thick dusting of cocoa powder was a great touch. Nello's is worth every penny, the bill for two of us was just over $30.00. We left full and happy, too many dining experiences can be disappointing if the little details are left out. They don't miss a beat! David was a fantastic server with an upbeat attitude, the rest of the staff was also attentive and helpful. Beer and Wine selection is nice as well, there is definitely something for everyone here. Like Nello's on Facebook, they post special items with fantastic seasonal ingredients that any food lover would get pumped over! I will be back time and time again.

    This is my first review and how appropriate that it would be for one of my favorite pizza joints in AZ. We eat there (actually usually take to go) at least 3x/ month. The Market fresh thin crust is always amazing. Every week it is different which is great. We have tried the ones on the menu but the weekly special is usually the best choice. I like the deep dish but ask for light bake and extra sauce. This makes left overs great and I do not like a crunchy crust. My wife likes the pizza crust and when combined with their sauce for "dipping" it is top notch. The service is always good and the same people have been there for years (always a good sign). I agree the beer selection is great and the bar tenders are very knowledgeable and can find a good match for anyone. They are one of the few places with 4 Peaks Hop Knot. The house dressing is great and you can take home a bottle for $5 to enjoy all week.

    We ate there Sunday Sept.6th, around 7:30pm. They were out of deep dish crust, so we were only able to get one of two pizza's deep dish style. Service was good and food did come out in a timely manner. For desert they only had canole's and brownie ice cream. How can they not have Cheese cake for which they are well known for, or any other choices. Needless to say after spending over $230 including the mandatory 20% tip for a party of 16, (which i had no problem, as the service was good) we were very disapointed with the lack of food selections. I don't know if it was the large party, sunday night, or that it was a holiday weekend As my wife and i recommended it, we won't make that same mistake next time. Nello's you really let me down.

    What can you say about Nellos....a truly family run operation serving up good pizza in a friendly atmosphere. Although there are a number of locations throughout the Valley now, I remember when living in Ahwatukee going to Nellos, and seeing the late Pat Tillman, his wife, along with his brother and Jake Plummer eating pizza and having a good time. Everyone knew who Pat and Jake were, but they were left along, treated like normal customers, and it made for a special memory everytime we would see them. The pizza is the foundation, but with a great offering of sandwhiches and Italian dishes, there isn't a bad item on the menu. I truly love the house dressing that they make and bottle for purchase. It turns a normal green salad into a tasty treat. If you have a Nello's in your area, for the value and service, they are a great choice.

    I went to this place over the weekend when I was in Phoenix and I was kind of surprised that they had a opened up a different location (when I was there last, I went with a few buddies, who know the owner, to the one in Tempe on a Saturday night to grab a quick bite and do a little "pre-partying"...). The food was still great but this time it was a different crowd...We had a pretty large group for lunch and we shared a 3 huge salads and a couple deep dish pizzas and one thin crust pizza and there were plenty of leftovers.

  • Chelsea S.

    After all the rants and raves I have heard about Nellos, I was sadly disappointed. This place had been made out to be one of the best pizza places in Ahwatukee. I started off the meal with a basic dinner salad with the house dressing and ordered a veggie thin crust pizza. The dressing is delicious, and I would definitely consider buying a bottle of it to keep at home.However as our pizza arrived, I saw the first hint that this pizza place was not going to live up to its reputation. First of all, I ordered a thin crust pizza, however, my pizza looked as if it was just regular crust. The pizza itself wasn't bad- fresh ingredients, good amount of cheese and toppings, but the sauce could use a little more basil or oregano. I was thoroughly unimpressed. My boyfriend ordered a deep dish pizza, and suffice to say, it wasn't really deep dish. It looked like regular pizza just with super high pizza crust walls. The topping and the flavors were good, but the deep dish pizza wasn't really filled enough to be considered deep dish. The food simply just didn't live up to countless good reviews I had heard about it before.

    I come here all the time... in fact I have been here 3 times this week for lunch. I have had their pizza a few times which is always good, but I really love the sandwiches and soups and salads. I either get their 1/2 sandwich and soup special or salad... you get to chose from any sandwich (turkey and avocado is always great) on the menu and the soup special or a garden salad or Cesar salad. perfect amount of food. I also really like their salads... I have had the salmon and cous cous salad which is great and the Chicken and Gorgonzola salad which is also very good. The reason they did not get 5 stars is because sometimes their service is pretty slow... i have a feeling this is due to the lunch rush.

    I love the build your own thin crust pizza!! The service here is great and they have an awesome selection of beers on tap. Cheesecake is great if you get it before it sells out. I can't wait to go back when I'm in Phoenix again!

Pizza

Pizza is a famous Italian dish savored around the world. The entire credit for the popularity of Pizza in the United States goes to the chain of pizzerias all over the country. While the base and the texture of Pizza remains same across the globe, it's the toppings that differs from country to country. In the United States, you will find the top pizzerias serving pizzas with the toppings of mainly beef, bacon, chicken, ham, and sausage for the non-vegetarians. Other than these famous meat options, Pizzas with veg toppings such as mushrooms, pepperonis, garlic, tomatoes, spinach, etc. are also famous in most restaurants in the United States.

Irrespective of your locality, you will find a variety of different restaurants in your cities offering pizzas of all different types. Pizza is hot favorite among people of all ages in the United States. A large size pizza is enough to feed a family of 3 or 4 at large. Pizza is also the most preferred food whenever a group of friends is hanging out together. Pizza gained popularity in the United States after the American soldiers stationed in Italy returned from World War II.

Over the years, different pizzerias in the United States have developed their own respective regional variations. Pizza gained popularity as the iconic dish in the United States in the second half of the 20th century. Whether you prefer thin or thick crust pizza, you can find a pizza of your preference at the best pizza restaurants in your city.

Italian Cuisine

The immense popularity of Italian cuisine globally isn't unknown. You can find an Italian Pizzeria around every corner of almost every city in the United States. Not to forget that in every house, people enjoy mac and cheese as comfort food. But it would be wrong to believe that Italian food starts with pizza and ends with good pasta as this Mediterranean country has much more to offer other than these two dishes. In Italian Cuisine, there is a high use of fresh tomatoes, all kinds of herbs, great quality of cheese, all types of meat, seafood and fresh handmade pasta. Many find it hard to believe that Italians have been making noodles long back.

Italian and Greek cuisines are always mistaken to be same, but they are poles apart. The primary difference between the two cuisines is the use of cheese in most of the Italian dishes. Italians love to cultivate their own cheese and process them as per their food requirement. It is believed that some cheese is so expensive that cheese producers secure them in lockers.

If you are bored eating the same old pasta or pizza, you can try some of the authentic Italian dishes like Risotto, Polenta, Ribollita, Lasagna, Fiorentina Steak, Bottarga, Ossobuco, Carbonara, Focaccia, Arancini and Supplì. Another item which Italians love to relish every morning is a good cup of Italian Coffee. Once you taste a freshly brewed cup of Italian Coffee, you might not visit Starbucks ever again. Authentic Italian food is made with heart and soul, so go find a restaurant where you can relish Italian cuisine in your city.
