Diner Reviews
  • " Nino's has been there since there since the early 80s. Great food reasonably priced Dark wood tables. ..reservations later in the week are a must"

  • "The food isn't bad but the waiter needs some help with their manners. This place is not fit for a big group, the waiter was annoyed that we where loud. But we are a grough of 11 if they can't handle that then they should not allow that number for reservation, or set the other gl table further since we are such a big group."

  • "I had one of the specials for dinner - a linguine with shrimp, bacon,and peppers in a lobster sauce. It was absolutely fantastic. The bacon was cut in thick chunks and a delicious addition that I would never have thought of."

  • "This was a great little restaurant. The owner greeted us when we walked in and was very friendly. The waiters were very nice and efficient- we had a time constraint and they brought our food out right away and with no hassle. I had the gnudi. It was amazing. My friend had one of the personal pizzas which was huge for a personal size. We also treated ourselves to Presecco which was at a pretty good price. The night was pretty inexpensive considering the wonderful Italian comfort food. I would highly recommend."

  • "My friend and I enjoyed dinner. I had the wild mushroom, crispy procsuetto and riccotta pizza and my friend enjoyed her drunken lobster pasta. We shared the butterscotch budino (pudding) with amaretti cookies crumbled on top - yummy,,,"

  • "I order food from here for delivery all the time, so I wanted to try it in person. It's such a nice place for dinner, and the food is legit italian. The appetizers, pizza, pastas and wines are all delicious. Service is efficient too. It's a great little italian restaurant with a more upscale but casual vibe. "

  • "Upon arriving on Mother's Day, we were warmly welcomed and quickly seated. We started with the fried pumpkin which was amazing. The entrees were all equally tasty and the bread pudding dessert was heaven. The wait staff was very friendly and made sure our water glasses were never less than half full "

  • "Nino's 46 is a rare gem. The food OUTSTANDING. The price FANTASTIC. Franco and Mike, the owners ... SUPERBLY TALENTED. The value cannot be beat. I've come with clients, family, kids, adults, all types of crowds. They have yet to disappoint. You cannot get a better meal for the value in Manhattan. The fact that it is a family owned and family run establishment shows in the quality and care. I highly recommend Nino's 46. "

  • "My daughter has eaten here before at various times of the day and she and her friends have enjoyed everything they have ordered. She has a lot of food allergies and the waiters are always helpful in telling her what dishes contain what she can't have. I have celiac issues and am very careful about eating out because some restaurants are not as cooperative and it is easier to stay home than risk getting ill. We told our waiter that I was gluten free and he told me what would be safe for me to have. When another person brought bread to our table he said he was sorry he had no gluten free bread. We were very impressed. The food was delicious and we will definitely return."

  • "I came here with my parents the other night. I had the chilean sea bass which wasn't very good - but maybe I'm just not a fan of chilean sea bass and not the way it was made (I'm not sure). Either way, I didn't like it. I did like the cream sauce it came in though. My mom had the fettuccine. The lobster was lacking in flavor, but the fettuccine was pretty good. My dad had the short ribs and he seemed to like it although I tried the vegetables, and they were a bit salty. "

  • "We had a pizza and pasta dish. Both were OK. This is a "good" place for a basic meal and get together. Centrally located in midtown."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Enjoyed Nino 46. Shared truffled mac bites - did not like truffle oil. Wine by glass was a bit expensive,We each tried individual pizzzas. My friend had clam - interesting but a little salty. I had the sausage bolognese - good flavor though could have been crisper. Owner/chef came by to ask how things were. Really enjoyed the lemon ricotta cake with strawberries and basil. Service as good."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "I have gluten allergies and wet with my wife who does not. We were both delighted with our experience. They were very attentive to my allergy and the red clam with penne was fabulous. Great feel to the place - thooroughly enjoyed. When they found out we were tight against a theater time, they could not have been any more cooperative and responsive. A hit all the way around..."

  • "I was dining alone on a business trip. I sat at the bar and had the salmon special with Kale. Everything was tasty and I loved the atmosphere. Will visit again."

  • "Everything about it was awful, the food, the portions, the drinks, the service. Will not be going back here again."

  • "Great homemade pasta @ reasonable prices Fresh burrata prepared hot (fra diavola) or traditional cold) Very nice kale salad with buttermilk dressing Moderate prices and nice neighborhood feel"

  • "My fave midtown lunch spot - great for groups, business lunches, or out of town guests. Superb Italian food and great service. The pizzas are creative and delicious (wood fired) and the pastas are all fresh / delicious."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "Brought my team for a post holiday lunch and everyone LOVED the food. It really is a great menu for a variety of tastes: some had a pizza, some had a pasta (the gnudi is totally out of this world fantastic) and some had a fish dish. A couple commented that they never went east of 6th ave. I think there were many who will return! We had a very relaxed lunch and didn't feel rushed. Thanks VERY much!!!!"
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "There is a skilled hand and imagination in the kitchen here, giving typical Northern Italian fare—pastas, pizzas, grilled fish—with special twists. Even though the restaurant is cramped (it's a brownstone space), I return for the food. The manager is very responsive to requests (e.g., lower the music), and the location is convenient to the theatre district."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We went for pre-theater dinner - had an early reservation - service was not the greatest - our waiter was disinterested in our party. We chose the restaurant based on their gluten free options and the food was good. If someone was looking for a restaurant w/ glueten free options, I'd recommend; but the service was not really good at all..."

  • "Needed a place to dine before 8pm show at Lincoln Center. I arrived early. Hostess was very friendly and said no problem, you can wait at the table or at bar, which ever I prefer. I waited at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and gave me her choices of favorites dishes. I opted for the Salmon special which was delicious and cooked to perfection. A perfect choice;)"

  • "Our party of 4 ordered the seabass with Risotto and cheese pizza- both were fine, the other two dishes were not. Parts of the pasta dish were very soft and other parts stiff. The dish had clearly been reheated in its sauce which had been adsorbed giving the pasta itself a reddy look. The broccoli on my plate had clearly been reheated and had been poorly drained so that there was a pool of water on my plate. There were several other issues. The manager refused to accept that there were any problems (which was annoying when they were so obvious) but then comped the whole food tab despite my offers to pay for the 2 good meals. Maybe a bad day in the kitchen but with management in denial, these problems in the kitchen as likely to persist."

  • "Took the calamari, they weren't cooked enough and they were cold. Same thing for my friend's diner."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "The food was bland. I normally complain that restaurants use too much salt, but all the food at Ninos 46 could use some salt and spice. Even risotto with bacon and lemon was nearly tasteless."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "The food was fine---not brilliant, but better than average and reasonably priced. The service was fine as well. But the noise level was so deafening and unpleasant that the members of our party were unable to converse without screaming at the top of our lungs. Sadly, we will not be back."
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "The hostess didn't even look at us when we walked in, so we walked past her stand to the bar where the bartender proceeded to help us find our table (table was ready 10 minutes after the time of the reservation). We had to flag someone down to get drinks once seated. Beyond the mediocre service, the food was tasty!"
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "We made a reservation for 1:45. The restaurant was right next to the theatre. We ordered pizza and let the waiter know that we had 3pm theatre tickets. Our food didn't come until 2:55. Worst of all, every time I tried to find out anything, they just said "it's coming right out". Tell me the truth at least! I do not recommend."
    Dined on 12/15/2013
  • "Very slow unfriendly wait staff. Found it on yelp with good reviews. Would not go back the price of the meal not worth it. Got a bottle of wine for 30$ then asked for 2 glasses of wine, each were 15$ may have well as gotten another bottle."

  • "My wife and I are big fans of good Italian pasta dishes and Nino 46 did not disappoint. It was 2pm on a Friday and we didn't have dinner plans. Our hotel concierge was able to get us a table for 2 easily right during dinner rush -this of course made us nervous before we got there. Once we arrived it was a bustling place, nice ambiance with good lighting. The noodles were clearly made fresh and the seafood portions in both our dishes were very good. Nino's has a nice wine list and we were able to match a good red with our meals (Glad I know Italian wines as there was not much help from the staff -largely due to the restaurant's pace). Next time we're in town, we'll be booking a reservation again!"
