I fortunately ate here despite being misled by the wrong menu posted on menupix,com. The food and service were great , prices were also reasonable with abundant portions. I am so glad we tried Nutshell and will definitely return.

Good comfort food in large portions. Veal dish was very good but the shrimp dish seemed a bit overdone. Sausage and peppers were fine. Service was attentive, prompt, and pleasant.

Ordered veal Parm very bland no flavor. The appetizer (escargot) much better than meals.

Hate to just repeat all those raves, but I gotta! I'm from Long Island and a friend from CT said I should try this place. Really nice people and great food at good prices. Clean and modern, but also has a wonderful combination of old-time Irish and Portuguese ambience.

a diner from West Hartford, CT
Loved the food and the ambience. The owner/chef has many interesting choices for the diner. I felt like I was back in Portugal! I love to run in for a comfortable lunch or dinner that won't break the bank!

a diner from Avon, CT
My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we ate here (June, 2008). Delicious food, beautifully presented and stellar service. We had eaten at Oporto a few weeks ago and found the opposite experience - Mediocre food and bad service and overpriced. Nutshell is a gem!!!
