You can't bet the specials at Nucci's South. We went on a Thursday night and it was a 2 for one dinner special. The choices were very good. Ed the bartender knows how to make a mean Manhattan. Wonderful local gem.

Went here for a graduation dinner. The food was good but the service was so slow and there was no one else in the place. Would probably try again hopefully it was just an off day.

We came from all over to celebrate a 50th anniversary and we are so glad Nucci’s was recommended to us. A great meal and fantastic service! Kudos to our waiter Brandon who put up with us for 3 hours.

This was our 2nd visit to Nucci's. The staff are very friendly. The food was delicious and the portions very generous! We had the tripe and oysters special to start. Sauteed scungilli was wonderful. My only suggestion would be for a bigger wine selection.

This is a well established Italian spot in Staten Island with a nice menu but questionable service. My luncheon companion clearly stated his order and the waiter got it half right. The music was unnecessarily load and when asked to lower it, the staff was...More

The fried calamari are the best on the Island. Get it with the special Nuccis sauce. To die for. My other favorite is the raw oysters. Great value, quality is superior. Bartender Eddie is the best too.

I ordered two dinner entrees to go. One was eggplant parmigiana and the other chicken parmigiana. Each came with pasta which was the dominate feature of the plate. The eggplant was good as it was nicely cooked and sauced. The chicken was poor. The cutlet...More

Nucci's is a nice quiet restaurant, can be romantic, or great for a business dinner/lunch. The owner, Paul will always make his rounds to make sure you are well taken care of. And his staff are also very attentive to your needs.
