Use To Be NiNo's But Now Much Better

Just had dinner there with my daughter. It's been Hummingbird Pastaria now for about a year before it was Nino's. We both got the smaller portions for dinner and didn't eat all of that, neither of us were very hungry. Got the bruschetta...I thought it was OK not great but my daughter like it... read more

Over-priced, slow service. Not everyone who lives on the mountain is well-to-do. Tried it twice, same results. Won't be going back.

Nino's changed ownership about a year and half ago. New owners have really cleaned the place and kept many of the menu favorites. Great place for meeting family and friends for a low key meal with friendly service.

Well, the wine list is much, much improved, and they are finally putting a little more sauce and dressing on their dishes, so that's good. Prices still a little high for the food and drink offered, though. Out of three entrees, one was great (pasta bolognese), one was good (lasagna) and one was REALLY bad (pasta pomodoro). Appetizer was very... More

Nino's is Real Authentic Italian Food. Not Americanized version. Wonderful selection to choose from and Great Friendly Italian Style service. Comfortable relaxed environment where you can sit as a couple or take over the place with your family and friends.

Prices could be better but they're pretty good for being up on the mountain. Plus, don't you always think prices could be better?

A recent change of hands at long-standing mountain favorite means that not only have the owners changed but the menu has too. More options with expanded fish, meat and pasta selections. This family friendly mountain restaurant offers good food in a pleasant atmosphere. Great for family dinner, date night or pick up and go with take out a great option... More

So apparently there is a new owner for this restaurant, and the menu and food is much improved. Lousy wine list with only a Merlot and a chianti offered by the glass. Italian restaurants should have more than just two red wines on offer by the glass! It's Italian food! The salmon was good and cooked appropriately; cost $21. The... More

New owners. New menu. I've been a customer since the late 90's. Last night was my last drive to Signal. The sauce tasted very pre-processed and a little like Chef Boyardee. The salad was terrible. The Italian personal touch is gone. Nino was there but the food was not. So disappointed. No better than Olive Garden. I'll be looking for... More

They claim to be authentic Italian. Maybe so. I guess I'm Authentic AMerican. The pasta is pasta and the toppings are sparse and spicy. I just prefer to get enough sauce and toppings to be visible. On the good side, there is plenty of pasta. The bread was tough and cold. The very plain salad came with one dressing option:... More
