Description: Nino's, opened in 1968, has been owned and operated by Antonio Noviello since 1982. Originally from the Amalfi Coast of southern Italy, Antonio worked in Monte Carlo, then Bermuda where he met his wife Helen, an Atlanta resident. After moving to Atlanta in 1981, Antonio's life-long dream of owning his own restaurant became a reality when he purchased Nino's. For more than twenty years, Antonio has taken pride in serving authentic Italian Cuisine made with fresh, imported ingredients and cooked to order for each guest. His reputation for serving exceptional Italian cuisine has attracted devoted locals who return time and again, along with a long list of celebrities (see below) who had heard of Nino's reputation and stopped in to sample the fare. Many of the dishes on Nino's menu are original recipes brought from Italy by Antonio and his brother Giuseppe. Antonio invites you to relax and savor some of the great culinary treasures of Italy in a memorable dining experience.

“Real Italian Food”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were a party of four looking for a real Italian restaurant and found Nino's. The food was above average and the service was excellent. I had Veal Parm and it was so big I could not finish it. The décor reminded me of Italian restaurants when I was a kid growing up in New York. We visit Atlanta on a regular basis and will return to Nino's.

“Could have been very good”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Our fault for going on Mother's day and thus the crowd, bustle and general rush that took away from well prepared food and adequate wine. My eggplant and penne pasta was just fine as was the Caesar salad. Others enjoyed chicken parmesan, veal parmesan and the veal. While there were many names on the wine list I was shocked at what was missing including Gavi, Brunello and several other Italian classics. Our waiter seemed to have too many tables and was in a terrible rush. Maybe I would go back but certainly not at a busy time.

“Fell in love with this Italian restaurant!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We went to Nino's last Sunday, it was cinco de mayo and we were visiting Atlanta and hoping to find a Mexican restaurant, but they all had long lines, so we decided to try Nino's after the hotel we were at recommended it. When we parked it didn't look like much, small and looked more like a house than restaurant. It turned out to be a wonderful choice of restaurant, everything is homemade and delicious! The employees are friendly and courteous. The food exceeded are expectations! Would most definitely dine there again, whenever we visit Atlanta again.

“Wonderful Italian Restaurant!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went to Nino's this past Friday night to celebrate our sons graduation from Georgia Tech...it did not disappoint. We had a party of seven, and were seated in a little private section of the restaurant. It was wonderful to have this bit of privacy as we talked and shared stories with my sons friends. Our waiter Jonathan was terrific. He had good suggestions for us. We all loved that for a little bit extra you could get a side portion of many of their entree pasta dishes. Several in our group got the filet mignon with side pasta dishes....the steaks were amazing! One in our group got the lobster tails, he couldn't get enough it was so good. Save room for dessert....their dessert presentation was amazing and of course delicious. Highly recommend!

“Ok Seafood Italian Place”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Recently ate at Nino's using scoutmob. The menu is heavily geared toward seafood with limited choices for chicken and beef or regular pasta. I started with the ceasar salad which was very bland and lacked any flavor at all including the dressing.

I then ordered the steak which was cooked properly and was decent on flavor and tenderness along with the alfredo pasta it was served with.

If you are looking for good non-seafood italian I would highly recommend going somewhere else. If you love seafood this could be a good spot for you.

BEWARE if you use scoutmob they automatically add the gratuity based on the price before discount.
