Family owned and very casual, this restaurant serves excellent classic Italian dishes. They definitely make the very best eggplant parm we have tasted anywhere. If you like a thin sliced no breaded eggplant baked to perfection,this is it. In addition their pizza is outstanding. I wish i had their sauce recipe it is sooo good! Inexpensive and for an impromptu... More

We love Nino's of Boca II restaurant. Great food in an unassuming atmosphere has us coming back frequently. We love the linguini with huge shrimp in red tomato sauce. Mmmmmm good. Dinners come with salad or soup. Service is low key, but friendly and efficient. Nino's is your typical neighborhood Italian restaurant. No need to get all dressed up as... More

Had dinner here with my family on a trip to take my daughter back to FAU for the spring semester. Food was generally good, but rather expensive. The good: Everyone's main course was very satisfactory (Veal Piccata for me, a Salmon special for my wife, and gnocchi for my daughter). Also the desert got a thumbs up from them. The... More

We had our second visit to Ninos and we had a wonderful experience. Our server was great. I had the linguini with clams in red clam sauce. I asked for extra garlic and for exactly what I asked. It was a nice portion and the garlic rolls were outstanding! The rest of my part had pizza and they were extremely... More

As is typical of the area, this restaurant is in a strip mall. It's got a small entry so you have to look for it. If you like Italian, don't miss this one, though be aware it's not for dieters! Very good food, huge portions, great service. You can spend over $30 for an entree, but there are plenty of... More

If you want more than pizzas (their are really good, but!) for a nice diner, I believe Nino's should be the right place in Boca Raton. Very friendly staff, very good food (I recommend the veal with bruschetta), nice wine list, what else? A lot of place to park you car and sometimes a bit overcrowded so try to go... More

My wife and I made a visit to Nino’s of Boca on A Saturday Evening. The strip mall location was not appealing although certainly in a respectable and safe area. Our server presented us with a very knowledgeable account of the specials and his personal favorites. Our initial impression was… WOW! From that point the service went downhill including wine...

This was a great find since we were only overnight in Boca. Very difficult to find, since its a hole in the wall of a large strip mall; but what a great Italian restaurant. The food and service was wonderful; and the atmosphere was delightful. Would definitely eat here if we returned to Boca.

The other 4 and 5 bullet reviews are right - the food is excellent. What I want to add is that a lot of things that come out of a package at other restaurants and made on site at THIS restaurant. So, if you like the taste and texture of bottled Caesar dressing or dessert made in a cheesecake factory,... More

If you love NY style thin crust pizza like we do, you will love Nino's. We've tried many pizza places as new residents of Boca and this is by far our very favorite. They make their own crust and it has lots of flavor and the right amount of crunch, and their home made sauce has just the right amount... More
