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

Growing up in Brooklyn they were setting the bar high with the raving for 3 days before Friday nights dinner Nucci's jumped over it the bar! With such a large group and being family... 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

What did I like best here? The bread and the coffee. First, parking in the lot is difficult to say the least. I went for a private dinner, where they section you off from the restaurant. Room is very drab. Pasta with vodka sauce was ok. Salad was bad. Vegetables lacked flavor, potato croquette was meh. Parts of veal were... More

Went with another couple on a Thursday Night. They offered a 2 for 1 special which we took advantage of. Choices were good and food was delicious.
