My wife, daughter and I walked in at 10 minutes before 5pm, it really doesn't open until 5 but door was open. We were greeted politely and asked if we had reservations, we did not. The owner Angelo yelled from the far end of the bar "no walk ins". The lady said it's OK I'll get you in. Angelo yelled... More

Hosted family gathering here for 13 people, the service was stellar and the food was plentiful and cooked perfectly. The dinner was served family style and was wonderful. The service (especially Pam) were extremely friendly, proactive and very attentive. When they saw us taking photos they asked if they could take them for us so we could all be in... More

I am a bit prejudiced because I am familiar with the Little Italy in New York City, not the touristy one in Manhattan but the real one on Arthur Ave in the Bronx where the food is excellent. I give this pace mixed reviews. My wife's salmon ( obviously not an Italian dish but she was on a restricted diet)... More

It was my first time visiting the Little Italy area and after wandering around we settled on eating here. I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem. From the outside it looks small and even upon entering you think nice small romantic restaurant, but the place extends far beyond and can house large groups it seems. We were quickly seated... More

While trying to find a good place to eat my wife went into a little Italian store where the clerk told her the place to eat was Lido's. we took her advice and... More

I am not usually one for all that pasta and the typical Italian dining experience but Nido Italia knows how to do it right. I have never had a bad plate of food here and it is always fresh with the best flavor. They have some nice wine offerings and you can go as a couple, family or even a... More

Skip the side salads and ignore the rude host. The rest of the staff was fantastic and the main courses were incredible! I especially loved the Beef Medallions and the Chicken Piccata. Reasonably priced considering the portions.

My wife and I stopped by for an early dinner and enjoyed a meal of stuffed fish and a pasta with chicken. The overall quality of both meals was good but more in terms of quantity rather than overall tastiness. The decor will either leave you feeling like you are in a 1960s Italian restaurant or seem like an outdated... More
