A word from Nannis
Northern Italian cuisine, notably pasta with "Nannis sauce". Veal Sopressa, soft shell crabs, Branzini, and pasta with white truffles when in season.

The parpadelle was not a light and
tasty as expected. The veal with eggplant parmigian was quite good. The service was lovely."

Whether a business luncheon or a
leisurely dinner, the food is consistently good and the service very attentive. And yes, the tomato sauce is delicious."

The restaurant was closed. Thanks
for nothing, open table."

Possibly the worst restaurant I
have dined at in New York. Loud to the point of having to almost yell to be heard across the table. Food was mediocre at best. Fish was undercooked, vegetables had the consistency of chalk, salad was just a small plate of lettuce. The waiter was "too friendly" with my female guests to the point they were uncomfortable. After lunch one of my guests checked the New York health inspection history and it was very poor. I am embarrassed to have chosen Nanni's"

Although Nanni has been around
forever, it remains less well known than many of the other Italian restaurants in the area. I'd like to see it stay that way as the under-the-radar dining experience is part of the charm. It's old-school style and it's good food."

Our first time visit was for
lunch. Good "old fashion New York" restaurant. Our waiter has been in his profession a very long time. So professional and helpful with detailed descriptions and lots of patience. Upon asking for suggestions for salads/sides, his asking about "flavors" we might like or dislike, his response..."I'll take care of it." What arrived were custom built dishes for each of us. We tried three different pastas; all wonderfully al dente; all delicious. The very small restaurant and popularity at lunch time results in the place being quite loud, but I can and will pass on that and look forward to returning. Next visit will be for dinner...but will return for lunch also!"

The waiters need to be reminded
that sincere, pleasant customer service is as important as the food. One of our waiters just grunted. The ancillary service people were far more pleasant."

Service so bad and rude..turned me
off so much i couldn't even order food"
Dined on 12/26/2013
The restaurant is nice and small.
It makes the dining experience feel more special. All of the food was very good, and the wines were very nice for the price. Great selection of food available. I can't see having a bad meal here."

Small place. Tables are packed in.
Food was really good."
Dined on 12/12/2013
Food was very good and good
selections. Old time waiters and ours basically pushed the special appetizer only. We only ordered it for one person and it was brought for the entire table. Also forgot to bring coffees for some of us amd asked twice. Also very very loud."
Dined on 12/11/2013
This is a neighborhood gem filled
with people who are obviously regulars and staffed by waiters who seem to have been there since it opened. The good was wonderful, four different pasta dishes -- all exceptional. We loved the ambience as it was filled with people who were animated and enjoying themselves in a warm and cozy environment. If we lived in the city we would be regulars too."
Dined on 12/5/2013
More like you are at a family
members home…the people, the vibe, the food guaranteed to be delicious…but you get what you get it comes to service. They are very friendly but sometimes the service just wasn't there. Still, I would go back…just not with clients. Yummy!"
Dined on 12/4/2013
The food was good, but they have
overstuffed the restaurant with tables. The obnoxious guy sitting next to me was almost in my lap it was so crowded. When the waiter came over to serve us, his elbow was almost in the poor kid's soup next to us on the other side. If they would only remove a couple of tables they would end up getting more business. I know I will never go back although I really liked the food."

I have been to Nannis at least a
dozen times. Always a great meal. The service is great and you never feel rushed. Highly recommend this restaurant"
Dined on 11/23/2013
Several people suggested this to
us for a business lunch. The food and service were terrific, but the noise level made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation. If you want to talk to your guests, ask for the little seating area off the bar."

Excellent neighborhood find!
Superior wait staff - excellent food."
Dined on 11/7/2013
Food was decent but it didnt blow
me away. The service was great though, waiter was a charming older Italian fellow and the staff was very welcoming. Decor a little dated."

The food, especially the Nannis
sauce, was wonderful. When we are in NYC this is our Italian Restaurant of choice."
Dined on 10/24/2013
We made a reservation online for
9:15. We are from out of town and got back to our hotel late. They had a 9:15 slot open open for a reservation so we took it online. We walked almost 2 miles to get to the restaurant and we were refused service. Absolutely crazy and we will NEVER go back. The guy we spoke to was extremely rude. We ended up going to Cafe Linda. It was amazing italian food, the service was amazing, and the owner was very friendly,"

After many visits over many years,
we still think Nannis is the best Italian restaurant in New York. The food is out of this world (try the veal, seriously), superb wines and the service is double-cheek kiss friendly and swift without being rushed. We cannot wait to go back."
Dined on 10/12/2013
as always great food, our waiter
was a bit pushy so you have to stand your ground. Best Italian food in New York City."

A LITTLE UNKNOW GEM........DON'T
MISS GOING IF YOU ARE IN NYC!!!"

We had a great experience while
dining at Nannis! My husband ask the waiter which chicken dish was the best and the waiter replied I will bring you something you will love....and sure enough the chicken dish was AMAZING!! Highly recommend the spicy pasta for people who don't like meat."

fine as a decent neighborhood
restaurant but nothing wonderful."

Nanni's was a very nice venue for
dinner with a good friend. The food and service were outstanding and we were able to converse throughout the meal. I would return to Nanni's again and look forward to a nice experience. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and they recommended a nice bottle of wine from their well stocked cellar. Good find; I am glad that I dined at Nanni's."

If your looking for a simple,
unique, high quality place that's reasonable in the city, this is a great option. I held a team dinner of 10 people. Service was excellent, timely. Wine was excellent as was the food. The uniqueness of the italian servers made for good fun."
Dined on 7/9/2013
Nanni's is an intentionally hidden
gem. Old School Italian place from start to finish. The setting, the staff and the food are all terrific."
Dined on 6/6/2013
I've been going to Nanni's for
over 25 years and it still has the best soft shell crabs in NYC. The snapper marechiara is also outstanding, as are the grilled porcini's"
Dined on 6/11/2013
Excellent food and service-i will
return very soon."

We love this restaurant and visit
it each time we come to NYC."
Dined on 5/1/2013
Very plain atmosphere. Poor wine
list; there was not even a Pinot Noir on the list, so they told us. When we asked, the server immediately said they have a great substitute. He immediately left and came back with a bottle and opened it. It was just an "ok" taste. Later, when the bill came, we saw the cost of this "substitute" was $70!. If a server is going to offer a substitute, they must have the courtesy to state the price. It was just a chianti. We noticed when the table next to us sat down, the server did the same thing with them. One of the two guests does not drink alcohol and the server was pushing the issue anyway. The food was good, but there are better Italian restaurants. Recommendation: skip over this restaurant."

Nanni"a is a great find This is my
second visit. When you walk in you are greeted by a team if people who are ready to serve you. You head down stairs into the main dinning room which has a great ambiance. The place is a bit noisy but you forget that soon after you settled. The servers are all dressed the same way and are very accommodating, they know the menu,your treated with respect, and lots if attention. The owner/ chef makes an appearance and may greet you at some point during your dinning experience. All the food is excellent. We had a party if six with with appetizers and a bottle if wine and the bill was around 400 before tip and well worth the cost."
