We recently dined at Nino's for the first time at least 15 years. While the restaurant is very close to our home it is located next to an Interstate highway and is co-located with motel. Can't really explain why we haven't eaten here more often but we were happy we tried it again. We were invited by a group of... More

Visited here on a business trip, having heard the food was good. It was not bad, especially the homemade pasta, and the portions/ prices were good. The service was slow. When we asked for a check, we inquired if the offered a military discount. Our question was met with scorn. A lot of places offer military discounts and a lot... More

We had a party of 18 and the two waitresses had to be chased down throughout the meal for drinks, bread appetizers, dinner, cake, etc. Offered no coffee/tea and wait time for check was 20 min.

Food was great even though the Quality Inn I was staying at next door was awful. The food at Ninos was definitely the highlight of my stay. Good sauce, good chicken parm, good cavatelli, and good deserts. Portions were huge for the price too!

Great dishes, family orientated. Great selection and menu. Very good for family gatherings. Great for holidays and parties.

Terrible service. Food portions were large! My meal was very bland and a bit bitter from over cooked garlic. The rest of our party enjoyed the food, however the poor service played into an overall poor experience.

I haven't been to Nino's in many years, but decided to stop in for lunch while in Waterbury. Part of this decision was due to Nino's location on Scott Road, and part was due to my curiosity about the restaurant so many years after I'd last been there. Orlando was our server and he was pleasant, efficient, and polite. Nino's... More

My gnocchi was huge, but horrible - like rubber. My salad was drowning in vinaigrette. Bread was nice & fresh though & my waitress was nice & friendly. They offer to wrap your food to take away. There's a couple of big TV's over the bar, so you can sit & watch sport.

My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch. Very large inside, plenty of space in the booth we were in. Fresh warn Italian bread with a nice olive oil and some garlic bread. Our entrees came with a nice salad and delicious house dressing. My chicken Marsala was plentiful, had leftovers for lunch the next day. My husband... More
