    The food was quite good (the drinks a bit pricey, though). The service was poor and they brought wrong plates. All things considered, would not recommend it considering there are places with just as good food (same price range), and considerably better service.

    The smell of goodness that wafted out from the open door was AMAZING. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Sal, as if we were family. I instantly knew why this restaurant was going to be an incredible experience. The menu was extensive and had enough options to please anyone. Throughout our dinner we were taken care of by our friendly server and never went without anything. She was very busy but also exceptionally attentive. The story of this restaurant, as read in the menu, warmed our hearts. We even got to meet Nando as the family was celebrating Mother's Day dinner, after the restaurant was near empty. We were the last guests in the restaurant and even though their Mother's Day dinner was full force, they never asked us to leave or made us feel like we were imposing. Thank you for an incredible dinner and experience.

    We never got seated! When we arrived for our 830 reservation we were told it was a 45min wait and all the other groups still waiting had 8pm reservations- never got a chance to try Nando’s but we will give them another shot! Was a busy night in the north end just wish they had called us in advance to let us know we wouldn’t be able to eat there.

    No other complaints other than that the owner was rushing us out after 1 hour because there was people waiting and asked us if we would leave. 6 guys trying to enjoy a dinner and the owner was very rude about the situation. Will not go back because of this

    I came in at my reservation time, was greeted by the owner and hostess and seated at the bar, by my own choosing. Deidre poured me a water and took my drink order while we chatted a moment. She’d told me she’d been working there since they’d opened. When it came time to order, I just asked that she select what she’d have if cost weren’t a concern. She did just that, and it was amazing!

    Not the restaurants fault, but they were VERY behind. We had to wait an hour to be seated from the original reservation time. In the meantime my group was able to get a drink at the bar. The bartender Christina was awesome. Once seated our server was fantastic and the food was amazing! I just wish they were more transparent about how backed up they were. They kept telling us 10-15 minutes, and that we were next but were seating other parties before mine whose reservations were earlier than mine. Otherwise great experience!

    In Fairness. My meal was taken off my bill and we were given a dessert for free. We were seated in the basement area/kitchen/ cafeteria looking room. The appetizers were good. Two steaks at shy of $50 ea were tasteless, dry, terrible quality- un edible. My husband had Veal, rubbery with pasta that could have come from a can. My halibut was so dry it was a hunk of hardness, with rice that was undercooked. Presentation was lacking; the entrees were terrible. No one checked on our meal once it was served. No water refilled. Drinks took 30 min to arrive. The restaurant was packed, maybe the kitchen was overwhelmed, maybe the restaurant was the only one in the North End that had open reservations at a decent time ( not a good sign, but tried it because there were good reviews). A unfortunate, expensive evening that was a big disappointment that was meant to be a fun trip into the North End.

    We had a fantastic time at Nando celebrating a Birthday. There was a brief wait despite a reservation but they were very apologetic. Service was timely and friendly with great recommendations and excellent knowledge of the individual dishes. The three appetizers we ordered were exceptional. I would highly recommend the grilled octopus, the burrata and the roasted beets with limoncello whipped ricotta. The meals were filling with good portion size. My friend and I split a main course which was perfect. The wine list was lovely. One member of our party was gluten free and felt he had plenty of options. Dessert was delicious - we enjoyed the tiramisu and the cannoli filling was perfectly light.

    Nando is top tier in every way. It is family owned and you absolutely feel the Authenticity from the minute you walk in. The calamari is so phenomenal and the filet and veal are to die for. This is my FAVORITE Italian restaurant in the north end.

    I’m giving the 30 minute wait past reservation time a pass because the hostess was phenomenal, and it was the first nice day in boston back. But we won’t be back, unless it’s sitting upstairs. Once seated, we were lead to the basement, something we didn’t know existed. We only booked this restaurant because we had not tried it and the windows upstairs were open and gorgeous. The basement was awful. Stuffed like sardines, hot, cramped, extremely loud music. We couldn’t even order a drink in good faith and left. Extremely disappointed.

    The vibe and appetizers were excellent @ Nando. Very pleasant and warm staff. The salads and Burrata are amazing for a start to dinner. Drinks- very weak. Alas, my food was sub par-fusilli carbonara was not worthy of a star. But, the swordfish and chicken, and paella got thumbs up from the group. The bread-for an Italian North End place was just so disappointing. And, desserts were-off-site produced taste...so I won't be back to Nando, and I would quickly say- they can totally do more to address their specialities...But, there is much potential too. We had a great seat and wonderful service, but gosh, with the prices for food- really disappointing.

    Wonderful meal and great service. Salvatore was a friendly and charming proprietor. It’s a bit further into the North End so not crazy with sidewalk traffic. In good weather restaurant is open air, so you feel connected w the neighborhood. It can get a little loud in the evening, so an earlier dinner time works well. Yum!
