Chez Nino is one of the only places in Aix where you can have great food for a good price (approx. 15€ for a large main dish, 8€ for dessert). The place is a unique, cozy, friendly little restaurant. The staff speaks a variety of languages but you will hear that they are real Italians. Chez Nino is one of... More

Enjoyed people watching and some good food. Nice stop on a drive between Nice and Arles. The farmers' market goes on in the median strip so you have lot of entertainment.

What a find! If your walk around Aix you will see a ton of Italian restaurants and never see this one. This place is not on a square, on the street or in a courtyard. It is off of the mainstreet, in the lower level of a building but oh was it amazing!!! Food was so flavorful and so authentic... More

What could have been a delicious salad was ruined by an exceptionally strong vinegrette. A risotto with parmesan was again ruined by too much of the cheese, it is very salty, thus destroying the red wine and delicate flavour of the rissoto. We ordered Chianti Classico but were told there was non available but were offered Chianti Reserve for the... More

A very intimate, traditional italian meal. Served by Nino himself - what an utter charmer and delight. We loved every morsel of it. Octopus salad was yummy. Tomato prosciutto spinach salad with gorgonzola dressing to die for. Love this place. A MUST DO

I'm a regular and the boss is great but a young guy has recently joined and replaces him some nights, with little tact.

Great little ristorante away from the crowds of AIX, and menu looks good Service : was very good and the owner was most charming and ever so friendly and generous. Food : have to say that it was disappointing as I was hoping for more Mama's cooking but instead it was slightly sloppy. It was just cooked, no passion and... More

That's a good option of an italian restaurant in Aix. We tried a pasta and a risotto, and they were all very good. Besides they have a nice casual atmosphere and are far from the confusion of the central avenue (Cours Mirabeau). The dinner cost us 35 euros per person , with a bottle of Rose.
