Best Pizza Ever!! – When ever I visit the area, I always eat at Nello's. They are closed on Mondays though. They have booths, tables and a bar to sit at.
absolutely great food – I have been to many pizzeria but I got hooked with Nello's pizza. It will always be the best one for me.
Thin crust goodness – It's the kind of pizza that would make everyone in my family smile with delight. I love how their crust is made-- and the toppings are just heavenly.
Just good food, great pizza at Nellos – 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.
Best Pizza in the Valley – Now here is a place that has their act together! Best food I have ever tasted. Top that off with friendly staff and a very clean restaurant, you could not ask for anything more!
Best Pizza Joint in Town – 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.
Keep Driving – 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.
used to be GREAT! – 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.
Lousy Service and Pizza – 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.
Fabulous crust, more food than you think – 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.
