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

Visited Nino's for lunch durning restaurant week 2014. While the appetizer and the entree choices were average (caprese salad, meatball appetizers; rigatoni in vodka sauce and a lamb shank entrees) the chocolate mousse dessert was incredibly decadent and very very good. The service was very attentive and extremely professional.

Nino is always there to greet you in person to this Northern Italian restaurant. The food has always been top notch when we have visited. The veal chops are superb as is the pasta. Great atmosphere for a romantic dinner or small gathering. Service is generally good although the lady who took our order one recent evening failed to split... More

I had been to one of their other restaurants and didn't really think about which one was the original. I really enjoyed the pastas & the veal in this restaurant. Definitely a locals' restaurant.

Visiting Nino’s is a charming experience which I find myself constantly recommending. Although I have only been there a few times I am always pleased by the excellent service, and friendly conversation with the owner who is almost always standing at the front to greet his customers. This is a romantic setting which is completed by a live pianist, the... More
