Elton and Randy (owners) are a delightful young couple who have put their heart and souls into making wonderful Italian dishes. The homemade pasta dishes are varied and so tasty. Elton will come out of the kitchen to talk with you and tell you how he makes these great dishes. The brie and tomato pasta is mouth watering and I love their lasagna. Please try both dishes - think you will love them. Also, the bread that Elton makes is just right for dipping in olive oil. Randy runs the front and keeps everything going smoothly.

I have been to Nino's many times and leave completely satisfied every single time. The place is small and has a pleasant, quiet atmosphere. They have a decent number of wines and menu with many great options. Their caprese is absolutely delicious because it is made with fresh ingredients and topped with the perfect amount of balsamic glaze and a tinge of herbs. Their freshly made pasta and sauces are also excellent. My personal favorites are the Gorgonzola and the Tomato and Brie pastas, but Basil Pesto is always tasty. Finish the meal with Chocolate Decadence and you're set. The best part is you get all of this for a decent price!

From the outside you wouldn't think much of the place but we were very pleasantly suprised. The pasta is homemade and everything tastes extremely fresh. If you call in advance they will even be sure to have gluten free pasta on hand.
Service was great as well. This is my new favorite restaurant in BR.

Loved the atmosphere. Linens and upscale look. A little expensive but really good food. We will go back again!

Pasta dishes are the best value on the menu. Try the pasta carbonara. I was
hoping to try traditional spaghetti and meatballs, but the item is not on the menu.
