    Had the misfortune of dining on a Sunday night at 715 and we were the only ones there. None of the employees really wanted to be there either. Everything about the experience was MEH... including the food. The only thing that wasn't lackluster was the prices. I'm sure the liveliness picks up during the busy seasons but do everyone a favor and just close instead of presenting that as your restaurant's personna. $80+tip for 2 people- it was worth about half that...

    We had the best dinner a Nani's Sunday evening! The service was fantastic and the food was Heavenly! We ate in the bar, which was cozy and quiet. I fell in love with the brussel sprouts salad with apples, spinach, and hazelnuts! A perfect fall treat. Our entrees were simply delizioso! Great evening!!

    We a party of 6 had a terrible dinner at Nani's. 4 dinner had no taste one dinner was so spicy it had to be sent back. No manager came around to ask why and the waiter didn't know what he was taking about. With all the good restaurants in Jackson go somewhere else to eat.

    Used to be a lot better. We've been coming here once a year for over 20 years. This time they did not honor a special request for seating and were unapologetic. Then announced that they were out of meatballs! How can an Italian restaurant be out of meatballs, especially on Labor Day weekend! The only good parts were the fresh pasta dish they split for us and the 70's rock music in the background.

    We love Italian food. Their menu represents some fresh options we had not seen before and totally enjoyed. From the fresh mozzarella with various accompanying options, to the interesting and good pasta options. Nice alternative to the offerings at other area Jackson Hole restaurants and found it reasonable considering the high quality of the food. Nice atmophere as well. We recommended it to others visiting the area.

    It has been awhile since we have eaten at Nani's. Shockingly salty, heavily-sauced food, and long waits [30 minutes past reservation time to be seated and another 15 minutes to get glasses of wine] make it unlikely we will eat there again. The seriously understaffed wait staff were pleasant and doing their best but completely overwhelmed. The food, especially the pasta could definitely use a lighter and healthier touch. Had that been the case, the waiting would have been worth it. It is a nice space, family friendly and a great location with easy parking. Too bad the food and service don't measure up.

    Went on a Thurs. evening with reservations. With a couple of two-seated tables available, we waited 2o minutes to be seated. At one time, there was NO food on any tables with the diners all looking at each other. The bartender forgot to pour me an another beer as I left the bar to be seated. Another 20 minutes passed before I saw that glass. When the server appeared with the beer, he took my water glass. As it turned out, the owner was seated at an adjacent table and kept going into the kitchen to get the food for her table. Someone at this establishment should start watching any of the Restaurant shows on cable that alerts one on how to run a successful food service. The water server was the only person working, it seemed.

    We have been to Nanis many time but this time the service , food and music was not in character. The food was not up to par we could have made it at home, the service was terrible which was odd because the resturant was not busy, we ordered wine and the they were out of three different wines we ask for and last but not least the music was not a good fit, they were playing techno music. All in all the evening was a bust!

My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and really liked it. It was a bit more pricey than we expected but I would still recommend it. Also good service and ambience.

    Food was delicious and service was excellent; however, arriving on Sunday evening at 6:30 pm, first thing we heard is that there was only 1 minestrone soup left. One other entree was also out, and then came dessert, 3 of the 4 dinner guests selected chocolate mousse and server came back to tell us they were out of choc mousse. Hard to believe ran out of number of items in an early Sunday evening.

    We had a lovely meal at Nani's. We also loved the little corner table at which we were seated. The starter of shrimp with olives and tomatoes was very flavorful, followed by a wonderful salad with a unique combination of spinach, brussel sprouts and nuts. I loved the house made sausage which I combined with the mellanzane and my husband had the lamb which was sensational.

    This restaurant is tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of town square. The pasta selections are the main attraction here, but the entrees are great too. It can be a bit pricey for pasta, but for a nice evening out, it is worth it. It is always quiet and the service has gotten better over the years to where it is pretty dependable. Nice place.

    Nani's is relatively small. We went in the spring, so it was not crowded. The menu features a variety of homemade pasta dishes, fresh vegetables, meats and fish. We went twice because we liked the food so much. Some dishes we tried were the fig pasta, gnocchi, egg rag soup, beet salad and fish special. Staff is very accommodating. There was a large family dining during our second visit and they were easily served along with the rest of us. If you like Italian, try this place.

    Our experience was mediocre at best. We were greeted by the owner who was not overly enthusiastic. At dinner the waiter was a bit abrupt and made us feel like our questions were dumb and or ridiculous. He basically wasn't interested in us, our dining interests. Not a place I would spend $75 on three dinners (no appetizers, no drinks or no dessert) again.

    We decided to leave Teton Village ski area and come into Jackson again for dinner. One of our group had eaten at Nani's before and had had a really nice time. So did we. The food was well prepared and the plates looked beautiful. The wine list is quite respectable. The interior of the restaurant very attractive. The service was absolutely wonderful. The prices are quite reasonable. Don't waste your time eating at Teton Village...better food at a better price in town. AND the bus to get there is only $3, $1.50 if you are a senior. We should have done it every night.

    Probably the best Italian in Jackson. Menu is constantly changing and food is regional Italian in nature with natural ingredients. Wine list is excellent. Meals tend to be pricy for those used to chain restaurant Italian food. However, there are always some moderately priced alternatives. I have eaten here for over 20 years and am generally very satisfied. Newly remodeled which has improved the atmosphere.

    I'm not sure I've ever seen a restaurant serving gluten-free pasta, I think because it's so difficult to make it restaurant-good. Nani's has a whole separate gluten-free menu and accommodated my additional dairy-free needs beautifully. I started with the insalata mista, which was terrific. My entree was gluten-free pasta pomodoro, to which I asked them to add pine nuts and spinach. The kitchen initially sent out non–gluten-free spaghetti, but the server caught it just as I bit down on the first mouthful. They sent out the correct pasta as soon as they got it cooked, and it was great. My husband got a puttanesca that he really enjoyed.

    While Nani's is a little off the main square, it's easy to miss but shouldn't be. The food and service were outstanding! The portions were generous but left us comfortably full. The pasta is fresh and homemade (stick to regular, not whole wheat), and the sauces were fabulous. The BEST was the Fichi (fig) and second place went to the Salsicce (sausage). Pomodoro (tomato and garlic) and Gamberi (seafood) were winners as well as the Pesto (garlic/basil - though ask to dial back amount...overtook plate). This was my first trip to Nani's but not my last. It's a neighborhood gem worth visiting.

    Our family really enjoyed this place. It was loud enough that we didn't have to whisper but not so loud that it was noisy. The food was 5-star. We ordered the tomato mozzarella salad, and an anti-pasta tray to start... both great. We had the short ribs, lamb shank, lasagna, and spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. The ribs and lamb were fall off the bone tender and so delicious I wish I could have eaten more. Service was great.

    We have been to NANI'S several times over the years and I must say that both my husband and I were a little disappointed this time. He ordered a dish witha cream sauce, but they didn't do the cream sauce tho it was good. I ordered the daily fish option. The fish smelled and tasted "fishy " instead of fresh. I probably should have sent it back and ordered something different. The service was fine, the ambience, etc fine. Just seems like the food quality and flavor has taken a step backward. Too bad.... Will most likely try another Italian restaurant when we go there this summer.

Definitely try to the Norcina and Liparota pasta. The buffalo mozzarella and brussel sprouts salads were also very fresh.
