Gino's is BR's oldest very good Italian restaurant. Gino's is great for traditional dishes. Nino's is a great little restaurant that serves interesting dishes that you might not find at most Italian restaurants. Check their website if you are interested, but note they also have daily specials.

Nino's is a small restaurant with a casual atmosphere that is great for any occasion. Reservations are a must. It is on the far end of the strip mall so we had to call to find it. As fitting Baton Rouge Nino's specializes in fish dishes, but they put a marvelous twist on your Italian favorites. Two in our party... More

Great food in a tiny little space. Best kept secret in Baton Rouge. Call for reservations because it does get crowded at times.

Nino's is one of my favorite Baton Rouge restaurants! It is a small venue with well prepared traditional Italian dishes. Portion size is fine dining style and service is good but not over-bearing. it is the perfect place for a couple who wants to have a quiet romantic dinner. One night a week the wine by the bottle is two... More

What a delightful restaurant. Though we did not have reservations they managed to fit us in. The staff was very friendly and the food was the best italian I have ever had. The place is small (15 tables) so make a reservation.

Small and comfortable dining room. Good service. Very good food. Not your typical Italian restaurant, that is, not a lot of red sauce dishes. Farm to table concept with very enjoyable dishes. We had the grilled romaine salad, a pasta with seafood dish, and tiramisu for dessert.

Its hidden away at the end of a strip mall but is worth looking for. I had the special pasta dish when I visited. The home made pasta is wonderful and the steak practically melts in your mouth. The sauce was a little too salty. The mussel appetizer was good but the portion was enough for 4 people. I was... More
