ITALIAN AT IT'S BEST!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.

This is the Top of Line for delicious Italian Food. This place is often frequented by celebrities and politicians. The food choices are many and they will make what you want. The cesar salad is made to order right in front of you. The seafood lobster dish and pasta is out of this world. The owner... read more

So, me and my friends came there as a reference from a friend. Place looks bad, nothing special and servers dont make u fell special at all. I don't expect royal treatment, but for the price, they should at least be polite to their guests And it doesn't help that owner (or GM) is running around and yelling at his... More

Our group of eight for a milestone birthday celebration enjoyed our meals and every moment at this restaurant. There were no complaints about our table, food, or service. The restaurant was prepared for our arrival and quickly accommodated us. Our server was most courteous, attentive, and accommodating. Due to our group size, we were able to order from the fixed...

We had all age groups and everyone who needed (or requested) a change to their meal was accommodated. The chicken was moist and everyone who had the... More

We went there during very bad weather but were glad we made it there. It was restaurant week. However they have a prix fixe menu for $38.00. There were 4 of us and we all loved our meal. They brought some bread and 4 green peppers for us to enjoy. The appetizers were very good including the beef carpaccio and... More

There are many restaurants in New York named Nino's. This restaurant is on First Avenue between 72nd & 73rd Street on Manhattan (there are others under the same management but I think this is the original). I have been having treatments at Weill-Cornell; we have lunched at Nino’s many times over the last two years. Nino’s is fine dining, service... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
