Recently visited this little restaurant and looking forward to going back. Service was outstanding, very good wine list and really nice food. Authentic Tuscan style - we all had different pasta dishes, each of which were superb. Can't recommend it highly enough.

It was my husbands birthday and wanted a special romantic restaurant. Nocello was a fantastic choice. It was warm, cozy, the service and the food was outstanding. They had a candle for his dessert and it was close to our hotel.
