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

Great Pizza!! This is actually my husband's No. 1 place to go to for margarita pizza and he swears by it at least every Friday, whereas I prefer their special. Although I've never had any complaints about the food, I do have to say that we've walked out of this restaurant due to lousy, slow service. Usually we don't complain... More

Nino's has been in business for quite some time in Waterbury and still doesn't disappoint when I visit. This is a basic Italian restaurant in the east end. They aren't like the heavy hitters on the west side of the city but a person can come here, have a decent meal, and not pay a ton of money for it.

Pizza was great! However we ordered a house salad to go which we paid $6.50 for and when we got home we were very upset. The container that the salad came in was barely full with lettuce, 3 bites and my 5 year old was done. What a rip off, very disappointing!

The menú is vast and offers mixed plAtters of Italian delights. I enjoyed the generous portion of eggplant parmagana with HOMEMADE pasta! No room for desert, but had some for takeout! Connected to the Quality Inn Hotel. Unfortunately, I don't appreciate their billboard on rt. 84 which destroys the view of downtown Waterbury's majestic church of St. Ann...
