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.

We have been eating Italian food at this gem for 30 years and continue to love it. Our last meal last week was celebrating a friends birthday. And this visit seemed to be better than its normal wonderful. On this visit we had the Veal Marsala (not on the menu) and two orders of lasagna. Complimentary bruschetta was brought to the table and quickly consumed. Great part was it did not have too much garlic. The veal marsala was to die for. Perfectly cooked thinly sliced pieces of veal in a marsala sauce that would have one eating anything. Served with a side of pasta and we picked angel hair with bolognese. It also was wonderful. Then there were the two ordered of lasagna. Some of the best we have every had. Perfect balance of meat sauce, noodles, and cheese. All of the food came out piping hot which only adds to a delightful meal. We had cocktails and wine. And let me tell you about their cocktails. They DO NOT skimp on the adult portion of the drink! Our server was a delight. Especially when he realized that we were in no hurry and wanted to visit for a while. At the end of the meal here comes the dessert cart. We chose the tiramisu and he sliced the biggest piece I have ever gotten at any restaurant and he said this in on me...Happy Birthday. What a class act. Love this place and will always make it a place for special occasions and any other reason. Atmosphere is warm and cozy and just reminds one of Old Italy. Can't wait to return. Highly recommend.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant! We had to do takeout due to the birth of our granddaughter, but they treated us as well as dine-in. We all had veal, parm and saltimbocca. All fabulous. The salad we ordered was excellent as well. Wish we had ordered dessert, but no room. My daughter has been coming here for years and I can see why. Do not miss.

We really enjoy this restaurant but the veal saltimbocca has not been as good on our last two visits. They seem to have cut the amount of veal in the recipe and the prosciutto overwhelms the dish. Skimping on the veal is ruining the dish and raising the cost of the dish may be necessary to keep the recipe as good as it used to be.

This restaurant has been in the same location for 49 years. It is a classic Italian restaurant with no frills just good food and excellent service.
I was visiting my family and took them here for dinner. Next door used to be a very good
restaurant also Alfredo's which is gone.
We started with the following appetizers which were all very good- Burratta, mussels posillipo,and Cesar salad, Entrrees were Lasagna Forno, pasta peperonchino, and capellini Elena- excellent food. We wanted to bring our own wine and there was a $ 25.00 corkage fee which I think is excessive. The desserts were terrific, the almond cake made on the premisies by the owner was a real hit
