I would definitely recommend eating here--the food is fresh and I would recommend the salmon & pasta dish for sure. My husband loves the Spaghetti and Meatballs and the pizza is great also. I have never had a bad meal here and the owner is very friendly and does a great job remembering you!

Family member suggested this. Did not look that inviting from the outside, just a building with windows. Should not judge a 'book by it's cover'. the food was very good, the portions were huge and owner very friendly. Much better that going to Olive Garden, glad family recommended.

I recently visited Nino's to escape the fare offered by a chain Italian restaurant. The warm greeting extended certainly was nice. I ordered Veal Parmigiana, and spaghetti with a glass of Chianti. The food was fresh, hot and tasty. The garlic bread was incredible. It was hot and light and melted in my mouth. The spaghetti was tasty. The veal... More

My friend had said the meatballs and spaghetti were hs favorite so got that for husband and vegetable primavera for me. Added a salad to split plus taramisu and cheesecake because looked... More

Walked into the establishment and seated ourselves after given menus. While trying to decide what to order we noticed the place wasn't clean, it was extremely hot (a/c not working?) and the manager, cook, whoever he was...was loud and obnoxious as he talked to some customers seated nearby. We decided the only thing that looked remotely good on the menu... More

We went there this past weekend because we had never eaten here and had heard it advertised on the radio for a couple of years. Well, when I asked if they had angel hair pasta, I was told that they only had fettuccine or penne pastas....Really? You are an italian restaurant. I settled on the penne with meat sauce...YUCK! It... More

After looking at the positive reviews my friends and I decided to try Ninos. After we sat down and looked at the menu we were instructed to go to the register to place our order. That seemed odd but ok if that's how it works I can handle that. Well, after standing on line for 10 min I was getting... More

We were on the road to Florida and stopped just south of Birmingham for the night. Wanting to take in some of the local cuisine, we consulted Trip Advisor and went to Nino's, largely based on the excellent reviews. I don't know what happens between the time those reviews were written and tonight, but our experience at Nino's was downright... More

Average food in a mediocre decorated building. ( An old Shoney's ) that has been several different types of restarurants . The food was not much better than frozen Italian food from the grocery dept. The seating situation was a little bit awkward too.....
