We were looking for a place to eat close to our hotel on 44 Street and stumbled across Nino's Positano. It was a pleasant surprise. The restaurant is typically Italian, very comfortable with unrushed service. It was quiet and easy to have a conversation, with enough room between tables giving you some privacy. I ordered the Paesana pizza and it... More

Our server was top notch, along with Nino stopping by many times to fill our wine glasses, add another table to make more room & pulled the awning out for... More

We lived in this neighborhood for quite awhile and this was our go-to favorite italian restaurant. Great service, cool back room and really authentic food. About 20 bucks a plate. They really seem to know what they are doing

We had a very pleasant dinner with another couple on a Saturday night. The reservations were for 8:00 pm and the restaurant was not crowded. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive from the moment we arrived. The menu was not elaborate but they did have a number of specials and we all found something we liked to order. We... More

I wanted a place that was authentic and not commercial and that's exactly what I got. The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious! I was there during Restaurant Week so they had a really great special menu to select from and it was a great deal. Tomato & Mozzarella, Veal Scalopini and Ricotta Cheescake with a capacinno.... More

Recommended by a friend with a house [yes] around the corner, Nino's Positano could not have come with a more effective local endorsement! And the ristorante delivered: nice cucina italiana - I chose the tortellini carbonara, w a glass of their chianti which was good, and the service was smooth. My principal waitress had an interesting accent so of course... More

Food is pretty good. This my second time and ordered a pizza again. . This time the quattro formaggi. . The cheese was to strong for my taste however the pizza in general is awesome. Great service as well.
