Superb dining

First, I recommend making reservations. It is always busy. Food is excellent. Staff is nice. They have specials also. Everything made from fresh ingredients and from scratch. Desserts are excellent, especially the hot chocolate chip cookies. Enjoy!

This is a very small (15 tables), quaint eatery. We almost didn't find it - you have to know what you're looking for, which is the "N" on the building. Dress was casual, but it is still a "white linen" tablecloth kind of place. Service was excellent. Food is devine. The use mostly local product from farmers and suppliers in... More

The cannelloni was excellent as was the caprese salad (could have used more tomato however). The Sauvignon Blanc the waiter recommend was outstanding. This quaint, easy-to-miss restaurant is definitely one NOT to be missed!

We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the past five years and we are never disappointed. Everything is freshly made in house. The menu changes seasonally based on what is fresh locally. What originally brought us here was the fact that Nino's sources most of their ingredients locally. The kitchen is very creative and from what I understand,... More

Based on friend's recommendation, we visited the restaurant for dinner on a Friday evening. The restaurant is very small, so reservations are a must. Quiet atmosphere with a much older, well-dressed crowd. Bruschetta appetizer was excellent! I was a little disappointed with my mussels and gnocchi, not enough seasoning. However, I will definitely go back. The service was excellent. Each... More

Everything is so fresh, and delicious and the service is always amazing. The gnocchi is a person fave- and always get the soup. Doesn't matter what it is. Just... More
