A word from Nino's - Atlanta
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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Enjoyed our first trip to Nino's. Pasta dishes were tasty. Lamb chop a little tough, but great flavor. Salads and desserts were delicious as well. Waiter did a great job too."

  • "This is one of the very best Italian restaurants in Atlanta and this from a reviewer who has been eating in Italian restaurants all across the U.S .for many, many years. We dine here often, usually once or twice a month and have never been disappointed. In fact, their eggplant parmesan is the very best I've ever had anywhere. Don't miss it and don't pass up the homemade mascarpone cheesecake when available."

  • "I have been consistently disappointed in the food each of the few times I have been. I hope I remember never to go back. The sauce with my pasta was a thick mess. The tiramisu had a strange, sort of sour taste. The bread was good."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This visit was my second time dining at Nino's and I would definitely recommend it. On Father's Day June 2014, the dinner specials were fantastic. We decided to order different specials so that we could share. All the entries were excellent, the Veal, the Grouper, etc."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food continues to be outstanding at Nino's, especially the veal and pasta entrees. I fear, though, that the continual rise in prices might start turning people to more affordable places with a more attractive ambience."

  • "Excellent food and service in a somewhat tight but very nice setting. Good for business dinners and intimate evenings out."

  • "The pasta sauce tasted like lean cuisine. Caesar salad was very, very ordinary. Very disappointing. Won't go back."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "We've now been to Nino's four or five times, and it has quickly become my favorite Italian restaurant. Their minestrone soup is the best I've ever tasted; I get it each time we go. We've had a different server each time, and they've all been excellent. This time around it was John and he steered us to some great items on the menu. In particular, the almond tart. It was just sweet enough to satisfy a craving for sugar but not so sweet it was overpowering. I can't wait to go back here!"

  • "Nino's provides great service, a varied menu and well-prepared food. It's always a pleasure to dine at Nino's."

  • "Every Saturday a we have a medium to large group of friends who venture out for dinner, cocktails, and conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed Nino's. The escargot was delicious as well as the pasta special, the wine, the bread, the olive oil... Our server was great and works well with a large table of diners. Lastly the desserts, oh my! The desserts are wonderful from the cream puffs with chocolate ganache to the cheesecake... I think we had almost every dessert on the cart and they were all fabulous!"

  • "A wonderful standby when you are looking for good Italian cuisine. They can easily accommodate a large party or furnish a comfortable booth for two. An old family Italian restaurant who has welcomed us in so many years that we now feel like part of the family! Saturday night I had one of their specials, a seafood ravioli with a lobster/crab cream sauce. It was amazing. Also one of the best places to have escargot. Never tough and so delicious. Use your bread to pick up the flavorful butter and (brandy?) sauce they are cooked in! Enjoy!"

  • "The dinner was very tasty, and the menu options were plentiful. We inadvertently thought the restaurant opened at 5:00 pm, showing up about 5:10ish for our 5:30 pm reservation, and the wait staff was very gracious in letting us sit at the bar, even accommodating our 4 year old with plenty of maraschino cherries until the kitchen was officially open. The ambience was very pleasant, albeit rather empty given the early hour. The service was very timely and competent. Overall, it was a delightful and satisfying experience."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The menu is large enough for everyone to find something but not too large that dishes are not meaningful. There is free self parking available. The service is very good and everyone is eager to do whatever it takes to make your meal perfect."

  • "This is the perfect Italian comfort food place, with a welcoming, efficient staff and delicious, consistent cuisine. Parking is easy, and it is always full of happy neighborhood diners."

  • "I have eaten at ninos once before and really liked the food and service. This last visit was a disappointment. We tried to order an appetizer with our beverages when we sat down and our Waiter told us that chef highly recommend we order everything at once so the timing of our meal was in sync. That was a first for me seeing that we waited over an hour and fifteen minutes to get out entree after we ordered. The calamari was tasteless and we had to salt it ourself. Veal was overcooked. Salads were prepared nicely."

  • "My daughter's favorite place! Dishes are always wonderful, service friendly. Classic for comfortable italian dishes!!"

  • "Nino's has been around in Atlanta for years. The food is fabulous, the service was very good and truly joyful. The waiter knew the menu and could answer the questions. The brick walls and cozy surrounds reminded me a few Italian restaurants the I had experienced in Chicago and New York. I would recommend to friends...."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Very good caprese salad, the gnocchi and saltimbocca were great, not a fan of the angel hair. But overall a great first experience and will be back for more."

  • "I have been dining at this great locally owned Family restaurant for 25+ years. Always good."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "My husband and I went for a date night before a big run. Nothing was very good. The mussels were not very flavorful. We each ordered a different veal dish. The veal was very dry in both and therefore the dish was not good. We had recommendations from friends, and maybe it was just an off night, but I don't think we will be returning."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I've been to Nino's a few times, and each time both meals and the service have been great! The reason for 4/5 stars is that the portions seem repetitively small compared to the typical Italian restaurant, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. I do wish the veal cutlets would have been a little thicker along with the eggplant, but I will definitely go back and recommend to anyone."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Food was delicious but service was a little on the slow side. I give them a pass on that as it was Valentine's Weekend and the place was SLAMMED. With the crowd inside, and waiting I was impressed with the attention we received from our server."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Went the day after valentines, and it was packed, but the way they did food, filling drinks, and appetizers, you wouldn't have noticed. The food was delicious, portions were a little small, but my appetizer helped fill me up. We had gnocchi and fettuccini which were both delicious! Food was fresh, and we had a booth which helped keep things quieted with the amount of ppl at the restaurant."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Took my girlfriend to Nino's for Valentine's Day. The restaurant had a nice look to it and felt romantic and cozy. Our waiter was spacy and did not pay attention to drink details. I requested a scotch on the rocks with light ice. The drink I received was a glass full of ice with an adequate amount of scotch. The food was timely. The Caesar salad was a disappointment, but the beef Carpaccio was pleasant. I had the Lobster fra Diavalo which was phenomenal. My girlfriend had a lasagna, which she really enjoyed. Enjoyable experience, but nothing otherworldly."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My daughter and I went to Nino's for Valentine's Day dinner. The only reason I chose the restaurant is because they had an available workable reservation time and it's Italian (which is my daughter's and mine favorite cuisine). Unfortunately, the restaurant did not meet my expectations. My waiter was nice enough but I have grown accustomed to a very high level of service that I just didn't receive. The food portions were much smaller than I am used to. I have been to many Italian restaurants and the portion sizes are always above average. Fortunately, the food tasted good and the wine was great! I would not consider eating at this restaurant again (at least not for a special occasion)."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was the first time we tried this established Italian restaurant, so we thought we would give it a try on Valentine's Day. Service was very attentive, but the food was slightly disappointing. We expected stronger spices and flavors, but my "fresh" grouper was just okay, not outstanding. Even my husband's shrimp scampi was not as flavorful with garlic as we've had at other restaurants. We split a flourless chocolate cake with a raspberry topping, in which I expected fresh raspberries, but it was only a sauce on top of a dry cake. All in all a relatively good experience but not what we expected."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "After hearing all the good things, we must of caught them on there worst night ever. While our service was good, everyone around us had horrible service. It was the day after Valentine's Days, so it was packed, but still. Food was good, but did not live up to expectations. We even saw a couple leave after waiting 15 minutes. Rough night, I suppose...."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Nino's; it was recommended by a friend. Parking is limited. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We were expecting a slightly more formal environment, but that is not the case."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Even though Nino's has been here forever as have I this is my visit and I really liked it. The veal special was different (artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes) and very good and the julienne vegie side was excellent as was the house salad. The bruschetta was also very good. We ate very early (6:00) so the restaurant was not very crowded and I'm not sure how good the service would be with a crowd but it was very good for us. My sister never had an empty coke glass and that's her main service criteria."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "This was the first time I had been back to this restaurant in YEARS and much to my surprise, the atmosphere was quite similar to my memories. The food is not knock-your-socks-off gourmet Italian, but good, traditional, well-prepared from first to last course. The service is excellent AND they offered nightly specials which I found delicious...but simple. Simple is good! Give it a try!!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Since finding Nino's several years ago through a Scoutmob, I have returned many times since. The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is busy but still romantic. Always make a reservation when going to Nino's because the restaurant is small and they are always busy. Try the gnocchi.... It's the best. :)"

  • "As always Nino's delivers, my only complaint is even with a reservation we waited 30 minutes for a table (not that we were in a hurry). Will be back for sure!!!!!"

  • "My husband and I love this Nino's, its one of our favorite date night places. The atmosphere is romantic, reminds us of our vacations to Italy, and the food is always delicious. We had friends in town and wanted a great spot for the 6 of us to enjoy dinner--loud enough for us to talk, but still energetic enough to feel like a fun night out. Nino's is a perfect spot for both date nights AND dinner out with friends. THanks!"
