So many things I can't eat: No problem! The staff is so willing to work with you. We sat where we could watch the kitchen and it is fascinating to see how they make everything to order. The kitchen is the cleanest we've ever seen - can't wait to go back on our next visit to California! Every lady working... More

Nardo's was absolutely delicious... so good we got seconds. They serve authentic Mexican food. The staff is wonderful and extremely dedicated. I would recommend Nardo's to others. Their new location is nice and clean, and the patio out front is great on a sunny day.

what a treat! A delighful little restaurant with authentic Mexican food. The Chiles Rellenos are worth the wait as they are made to order. Watch the hot sauce even the mild has a kick. The service was so friendly.
