There are many restaurants in New York named Nino's. This restaurant is on First Ave in Manhattan not to be confused with the others. Nino's is a lovely restaurant with gracious service. Caesar salad is still made table side and it's a real treat to experience what a Caesar is supposed to taste like. The soups are freshly made, butternut... More

Our group was looking for good food and entertainment. Nino's was highly suggested. The food was really food. Our server Donna was excellent. The pianist-vocalist Al de Leon was awesome. A customer brought his sax and played several tunes. Ladies were dancing and several men sang with Al. Glad we came.

We attended the restaurant on restaurant week and the clams were to die for! Amazing! The food was great but the service made the experience even better. Must try the Little Neck Clams steamed in a light tomato, fresh basil broth amongst all other food. Will return.

I was treated to a wonderful birthday dinner at Nino's. Although it was pouring outside, I was surprised at the number of diners on a Monday night. The food was delicious, veal dishes for both of us. I was disappointed, however, at the way the waiter keep pushing salads and appetizers after we said we did not want any. The... More

One of the worst experiences ever. And Nino the owner was sitting at a table next to us eating dinner with his date, ignoring the situation. My husband ordered the veal special. They brought the regular veal. Since he started eating it , he said he would keep it. They charged us for the more expensive special!!!!! When we pointed... More

From the moment you step inside, this is Italian! The table setting, the waitstaff, the ambiance...it's all Italian. The menu is fine, the daily specials are brilliant...and the chef is open to suggestion for your dining pleasure. Just ask! We have, and the results were brilliant. A special treat awaits the after dinner time...an on-the-house presentation of fruit. Delicious and... More

A restaurant experience comprises of 3 components: food + service + management. Respectively I rate: 3 + 4 -3 =1 star. We were a party of 10, so we had various entrees ranging from fish to pasta to steak and there were no complaints. The waiter at the onset suggested a large hot and cold antipasto to start, and for... More
