Nani's Cucina Italiana
fine Italian foodNani's has a fine wine list, excellent Italian menu, great bread, amiable and professional service--it's within walking distance of the little downtown motel where my wife and I stay when we visit Jackson, WY. It feels like the place is run with care. Both times we've been there have been very nice, very fine.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutdoor dining-not so goodWe always dine inside, and this night was the perfect example of why. It was extremely windy outside and yet people wanted to eat out there. They were seated and then changed their minds. We were seated inside near the door. There was a constant parade of staff and guests going in and out. We were buffeted by the wind and the door slammed several times and all in all this was pretty annoying. Fortunately our server was excellent and in fairness to the staff, they did try and get the outdoor situation resolved as quickly as possible. They might want to pay closer attention to weather forecasts in the future.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Italian dining in Jackson HoleBustling patio crowd, good food, and a good menu. Service was prompt, courteous, and not ingratiating or overly familiar. Food was quite good. I had a delicious fig cream pasta, my hubbie had capellini with shrimp. Wine was great. Salads were standard but well prepared.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!!!We enjoyed our meal here very much. The homemade pasta was fabulous, wine was delicious. The service was spot on, very attentive. We've been to Italy and this compared favorably.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHow's your dinner?Homemade pasta & a splendid wine. The sauces on our different pasta were very good - one with a very rich tomato based sauce, with cured ham and the other a lemon-based creme sauce. The only complaint with the food was the otherwise excellent prosciutto and melon. The melon was beautifully sweet, but cut too close to the rind, so that there was a hard, bitter edge. Two millimeters from perfection.
The decor is warm, beautifully done, with a kind of rough hewn quality.
One small quibble: For such a lovely place, the silverware was not. It was light in the hand, and the forks were small, like you'd get in a thrift store.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be backWe were a group of 10, and everyone really enjoyed their meal. The favorites were the lamb shank, gnocchi, and house-made pasta with house-made sausage. We always have a great meal when we visit Jackson and come to Nani's. See you next time!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
