  • "My best friends husband wanted her to go out as her push present. We went right before the dinner crowd came in. Nino greeted us and sat us. The waiter was very helpful in helping us select a bottle of wine. The food was extremly delicious but the wait was a little long but well worth it. P.S. the meatballs are wonderful!!!"

  • "We went to here for the dinner during the restaurant week. We waited one hour to have our appetizers. It was too long. The dishes was good and plentiful. I advice the seafood salad and the homemade meatballs."

  • "The service was rather spotty and unorganized. There was loud piano and even louder, not very good singing waitress. After Nino himself showed up, service got better. BUT - food was excellent!!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Been going regularly for decades and for the same good reasons. Very good food, excellent service, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices and a caring owner."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Everyone was courteous and attending to those that needed help"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "There's a bunch I can say but since it was Valentine's Day, I'm giving Ninos the benefit of the doubt. However, after the 1st glass, the waiter never refilled my wife's wine glass. Not once were we asked if everything was ok. I had to stop the busboys for everything from the winelist to water, to bread. Not impressed with the service but still managed to have a great time. The food was good but not $70pp good, not even close. Steve was great!"

  • "Very good food, excellent services and ambience, live piano with singer, NYC music from the 70s and 80s. Was one of the highlights of this trip to NYC. Will be back whenever possible."

  • "I first dined at Nino's over 10 years ago. It has become tradition for me to dine at this off-the-beaten-path restaurant. I stay at hotels in the middle of Midtown and prices are high and it's all businessmen & tourists. But way over on the upper east side there are some true Italian gems and Nino's is my favorite among them."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "I skipped apps, entrees, sides & desserts. I just had a pasta sampler of gnocchi, pappardelle & ravioli mezzaluna. I've been here before and everything is good, but the pastas are absolutely superb."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "It doesn't get more authentic than this. Nino has been around 35 years now. I saw his feature on CBS last month and the place is as great as ever. This is an institution, so I recommend putting it high on your list."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "This place has been here for decades & there was a celebrity in the house, which is also exciting, even though we contained our excitement. The pianist was a great touch & made for a romantic evening with excellent food & wine."
    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Food was delicious and well served. I would like to return to try more dishes."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We waited over 20 minutes for a menu, and five more for our water glasses to be filled. The food was mediocre. We were only addressed by the staff to place our order and to pay the check. The restaurant wasn't even busy at the time."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had a great time, the service was impeccable and everyone was so attentive. It couldn't have been better, especially the specials. And they gave us a complimentary dessert. I highly recommend, the food is like the finest Roman restaurant!"

  • "I have been going to Nino's for more than ten years. It is one of the best restaurants in which I have dined. The menu is great, the specials are fantastic (a tad over-priced) and the service is impeccable."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "It's a great location to get out of Midtown for a relaxing, quality meal, but isn't too far away. I'll very likely dine here again."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Excellent, authentic Italian cuisine. Hard to choose an exceptional entree from the Special Menu; then the regular menu is offered! Notable service; and Nino stopped by our table & was very gracious. We're returning for my wife's birthday next month...her choice!"
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Well where do I start, let me say that I have been here prior before and it was pretty nice. However this time it was horrible. The wait staff was very unattentivw or under staffed as we had to ask for plates, water, only one of us had a napkin, the Bronzino fish which was supposed to be prepared table side was done so from almost across the room, which completely took away from the dining experience. Not once did our waiter follow up once the entrees were brought out. Simply not what we envisioned for a night out celebrating my fiancée birthday."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Pleasant dining experience however the service could be improved."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We had a good time at NINos. While its a bit pricey,the food is good,and the service was great. we managed to find a parking spot right across the street. overall,except for a a little bait and switch invvolving tipping,it was a good meal,and a good place."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Ninos is always a great evening. Nino was there and he was very accomodating."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "We had a very good prix fixe meal here. There is a piano player most evenings. On this particular evening, he also sang which would have been very nice if the acoustics did not drown out normal conversation. The entertainment would have been better suited in a night club as it was very loud and thus we could not enjoy it. After many customers left, some of the wait staff also sang, but again it was deafening especially since the room had less people. Also, the tables for four tend to get crowded with plates and drink. It was only after we were almost through with our meal that the wait person opened up the leaves of the table to give us more room."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "We got reservations easily and found a little gem. The staff was great, the food fresh and very good but the piano player that went to every table taking requests was adorable. Table side cesar's and flambé made this feel like an old gem but they were wonderfully combined with fresh made pasta's, seafoods and steaks. It had a tasting menu we did not get because of time restrictions but the menu was large. The whole evening was filled with good food and romance piano music making it the perfect spot."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Arrived at 11pm for dinner and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming and gracious. As usual the food was absolutely delicious - veal that melts in your mouth. Favorite restaurant!"

  • "We have visited this restaurant 9 to 10 times and Nino manages to show up at our table every visit. Charming, engaging and "dressed to the nines", he is the perfect host. In addition to Nino, the outstanding food, spot on service and romantic ambiance ( including a musician on the piano on weekends) makes this one of our top go restaurants in Manhattan."
    Dined on 10/3/2013
  • "I highly recommend Nino's. The orecchiette with sausage, cannelloni beans, and Brussels sprouts was superb, and my dining companion's cavatelli with walnut pesto was just as good. The service was warm and friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and our surroundings."
