Our Mother's Day experience with Nino's was awesome. As it was curbside pickup, Nino's did a great job organizing the pickup and as usual providing a great meal that was ready for our pickup time, the wait was very short. When we got home the...chicken parm. was amazing, the homemade pasta was amazing and everyone enjoyed it. I will definitely go here again. Great service.More

Today the missus and me got the first take out in 7 weeks. We got from Nino's and damn it was good. I was a little skeptical at first but the food was every bit as good as when we eat in. 5 stars to...Nino's and all their staff.More

A picture is worth a thousand words. But I forgot to take a picture of my dinner last night at Nino's. It was very delicious and I'd like to convey that in this review. A moist piece of salmon grilled with great care and served...with a baked potato and a mix of sauteed spinach, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, vinegar peppers, and garlic. The chef took a lonely piece of grilled salmon and elevated it to an Italian masterpiece. It was healthy, yet rich in flavor and I loved it. I've already written a review for Nino's in the past, but this dinner was so good I felt it was worthy of it's own review. My wife had a cheese pizza. I've never had pizza at Nino's so I tasted a slice and it was very good. Jody, thank you again for another great night at Nino's.More

My husband and i went with the kids for dinner. The dinning room was a little dated but the food was good for the price. The service was a tad slow, but his excellent personality made up for it. We had fried mozz and calamari...for an app. Both were decent. We also had the homemade pasta which was excellent. The martinis were excellent. They were strong and well made!!!More

Delicious Italian food at a reasonable price. Our favorite is the cavatelli alla Nino (we substitute the cavatelli for homemade gemelli). Great dish. Bread and salad good and martinis are awesome. Mario is a great server. A must stop if you are in the area....If you are still hungry, have a tartufo for desert.More

Wings were amazing! Pizza wasn’t bad. Very oily though. Wait time was about 30mins. Within walking distance if you are staying at the Quality inn near by. A little expensive.

Well, my title says it all. Maybe the cocktails are a tad expensive, but the house wines are fine. We had 2 different meals here, with appetizers, and we enjoyed them thoroughly.

We had a family lunch at Nino's Restaurant in Waterbury Connecticut. We drove 2.5 hours from Union NJ and they drove about same time from Boston Massachusetts. From the bread, apetizers, salads and food we can say that was a very pleasant place to have...a meal Fresh food and very tasty. I will recommend to everyone in the area.More
