The food here has always been excellent but I will not be returning anytime soon. I booked a small party at Nucci's and was left disappointed by the end of the night. I must have booked on the wrong night since the restaurant was packed and, as a result, the service suffered. I should have known to book elsewhere- when... More

If you love wholesome and delicious Italian food, come here to Nucci's South. Everything you can imagine in Italian cuisine is here for the asking. Their gravy(aka Italian tomato sauce) is as good as you can get from a home cooked meal. The sauce/gravy is not acidic as some are and wonderful on any type of pasta or seafood and... More

My wife and I have been to Nucci's South many times and are never disappointed. The service is excellent and all of the waiters watch out for each others tables. If a waiter passes my table and my drink is empty he'll ask if I'd like another (doesn't matter that it's not his table). The food is always good, hot... More

We visited this restaurant recently and there isn't a thing on their menu that wasn't good!!! This food is as authentic as you grew up with if you're first generation Italian! If you're not - or didn't grow up with this food and taste.... I'm sorry! But there is still time! Seriously.... Everything from appetizers to main course.... Pasta or... More
