We ate there our first night
We ate there our first night in Atlanta and fell in love with the food, service and ambiance. First place I've been to in 10 years that played fantastic music to go with WONDERFUL food!
After touring GA, NC & SC for 3 weeks we all three agreed that only Nino's would do for our farewell to the southeast dinner. Just as fantastic as the first time!
At least 5 stars for them! And thanks to Carrie at Hertz for recommending it to us!

Oh the Veal
No visit to Atlanta is complete without a meal at Nino's. The veal was divine, the minestrone clear and fresh, rapini with slivers of garlic like Mom makes, oh the bread was crusty and soft but no doughy inside. Coffee was end of the night sitting brew that held a flavor , brochette was fresh. Sweet butter for the bread. All pepper from mill as the cheese was offered for each dish. Perfect meal, veal parmigiana complete ! John DeLaire , Minneapolis, Minnesota

We had a group of 20 high school students and Ninos did an excellent job with our dinner. They arranged a special menu which included a salad, choice of entree, dessert, and beverage. They set a flat fee to include meal, tax and gratuity. The wait staff was very efficient and friendly! They were able to handle a large crowd.

Not to be missed!
Real authentic Italian cuisine...Fantastic Staff...I will be back again and again + plenty of free parking. What a great place

Not sure why we never tried this place before. The food was very good for sure. Possibly one of the very few Italian restaurant in Atlanta that serves pasta "al dente" properly. (Pasta in U.S. is always overcooked!!) Saw some negative reviews about the service but we had no problem with service whatsoever and the waiter was very professional and service was very good. The interior decor was surprisingly nice despite the simple (and maybe boring) staging of the patio area. We will definitely go back again!

Only Show in Town
If you want old fashioned Italian food this is the place to go.Good cooking,good price and good people.An all around winner.I am an ex-New Yorker and consider this restaurant comparable to like Italian restaurants in New York

The zuppe de pesce was over-the-top
The zuppe de pesce was over-the-top. The medley of seafood items in the dish were fresh tasting with the right amount of spice. Excellent choice of items for those not inclined to eat a lof of meat although they do offer veal and steak. I love the ambiance of the restaurant.

Awesome as always
Nino's is everything you want in an old school, traditional Italian restaurant. Great food, great service, and great vibe.

This was our first time that
This was our first time that the four of us dined at Nino's. because we have always gone to Alfredos next door.. Not one bit disappointed. The marinara sauce on my veal parmesian was great I ordered a side of fettucini with alfredo sauce just to taste their version. . Extremely good ;creamy and rich.! Will go back for sure. For those who like Italian fare this is a great place to dine.

Great little restaurant. Food
Great little restaurant. Food was excellent. Service even better. John our server was fantastic. Dim atmosphere and old world Italian decor. Will definitely return.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had my birthday party at Niño's and all of my guests enjoyed it. The food as fresh and authentic and our waiter was great. I would highly recommend Niño's for a wonderful fining experience.

Finally Real Italian
Love this place, homemade pasta, my veal dish was fantastic, service was excellent! If you are looking for Italian food you would get in NYC or up north this is the place. I could eat here every week, you can tell they make everything fresh and the cannoli stuffing was decadent. The ambiance could use a little updating but other than that one of the best meals I have had in Atlanta.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took wife's 95 year old mother for birthday with family - she is 'old' style Italian, nothing fancy. Mark provided excellent service and great wine suggestions. Food was very good and everyone enjoyed it as well as the evening. Would go back again.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food; ambiance to match.
Years ago, you knew that dinner at Nino's would mean fine food and casual old world ambiance; real value. Nino's is the same to this day.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like visiting family
Albeit the parking is a bit confusing, the ambiance once inside is comfortable and charming. An older host with an accent welcomed us and showed us to our table. He was pleasant but not overwhelming like some Italian restauranteurs. The service was friendly and our server was knowledgeable about the wine list and the menu with out being pushy. The food was delicious in an unexpected home cooked way that reminded me of what I would eat at my grandma's house. Overall it was a great experience!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great food
Nino's has been around here for decades but they never fail to serve great dishes that are carefully prepared. Not like some Italian restaurants that just seem to warm up your order. It is an oldie but a goodie!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good as usual
The food was good as usual and we got a great booth, but the restaurant was really really loud. I normally think of Nino's as more of a quiet and refined restaurant and a good place for conversation...which was why I went there on a date. We had to yell at each other to be heard. The restaurant need's to reconsider allowing parties any larger than 4 to 6 people....the dining room is too small to accommodate larger parties/tables.....these are the ones that get loud and obnoxious. I really getting tired of paying high prices and getting disturbed in restaurants by rude people!!!! It's time for restaurant management to tell the people to be quiet or leave!!!!

Great Italian restaurant
A great restaurant owned by wonderful people. The ambiance and style is much like a New York Italian restaurant. I recommend it highly.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nino's has the best eggplant
Nino's has the best eggplant parmesan, the best baked clams oreganato, and the best veal marsala in Atlanta!
8/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
Best Neighborhood Italian Resturant
Although the look is a little faded, the food is consistently excellent. The Eggplant Parm is the best you'll find anywhere, while the veal and chicken dishes are always outstanding. Service is friendly and professional and the staff remembers your face. When the marscapone cheesecake is available (always home made) don't miss it. What's not to love about a place this good?
8/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
I always enjoy eating at Nino's. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable and the food is great. I have never had better veal than they serve and the service is always good.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always Nino's came through
As always Nino's came through again. Took family (6 adults) out for dinner, the food, atmosphere was outstanding. This is a favorite Italian Restaurant for us. We will be back again soon.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was exceptional. My veal dish was so tasteful. I strongely recommend one the best Italian
resturants in greater Atlanta.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most beautiful restaurant
The food here was great as well as the service. Its the perfect romantic spot as well as a great family dinning location. What ever you order is truly authentic and will drive your taste buds crazy good.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ninos is "old world" Italian.
Ninos is "old world" Italian. I've been going there for years and have never had a bad meal. The ambience is European and the service is impeccable. The complimentary appetizer is a nice touch and delicious. My friend had the mussels and I had the eggplant Parmesan.......both were excellent and the carafe of house Chianti was very good.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beyond exceptional restaurant
The first moment I arrived I was greeted with a smile and seated. In fact, all of the waiters and waitresses had smiles on their faces and they catered to your restaurant needs. The waiter could direct what kind of wine to drink with your meal and it just seemed like a well-oiled machine. From the time I ordered, the food came quickly and hot. I was amazed at the magnificence of how my Chilean sea bass was prepared. It was beyond exceptional. I consider this place a five-star restaurant. I definitely recommend this place for everyone. You will not be disappointed.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great, as well as the service. The veal parm was incredible.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't know why we haven't ever tried Ninos in the 10 years we've lived in ATL, but perhaps the Chesire Bridge location gave us pause. But several friends recently recommended it so we tried it (along with my parents), and it was a nice surprise. All of our entrees were good. The lasagna was very good and I would order that next time. The pasta with shrimp was very good as well. The pasta with shrimp and scallops was good but I liked the other shrimp pasta sauce better. We didn't have dessert. The service wasn't great especially considering there weren't many diners as we ate a bit late (8:30). we sat on enclosed patio which is nice but the view is just of chesire bridge road so nothing to rave on, but would definitely go back.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been a fan of this
I have been a fan of this restaurant for many years. I love their veal - best I've ever had. The atmosphere is cozy and service is always good.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
An Italian's Opinion
The food is the closest I've found so far to true Italian and they even made something for me that wasn't on the menu. Wish they used a little more garlic, but otherwise the food was very good. And the opera music was very appropriate.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took our son for his 25th birthday.
Wonderful to have homemade Italian.
Best clams llinguine I have ever had!

Nino's is One of My Favorites!
As usual, I had an outstanding experience at Nino's! I have been coming to this restaurant for over 20 years with my husband since and before we were married! I do have to say, though, that I love it even more now because of our wonderful server, Sacha. He is amazing!!! Request him, and you'll be taken care of for life! From the first time we had the good fortune to be seated in his section, he remembered down to the appetizer what we wanted. And it was at least 2 months before we were able to get back into the restaurant due to our schedules. Nino's is full of love, history, excellent food, wonderful drinks and an attentive and talented staff. Nino's has never let me down. Not even once.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good NY Style Italian
. The restaurant is very traditional, linen tablecloths and napkins, although not overly fancy. We started with appetizers. My wife had the clams oreganata and I had the Caprese salad. The Caprese was good, although light on cheese. My wife's clams oreganata were chopped, not whole clams. She prefers the latter. We both ordered veal parm. EXCELLENT! Pounded thin and sautéed perfectly . Great sauce and right amount of cheese. The sides (capellini) were perfectly al dente. Bread was first rate as was the wine list. Alejandro provided friendly, attentive, knowledgable service without being overbearing. Prices were very reasonable considering the quality of the food. I highly recommend Nino's.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lets do it again sometime
Really enjoyed dining here. Food was very good. It is more of a special occasion place.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
All about the carbonara!
This was our 1st visit to Nino's and definitely will not be our last. We've been to Alfredos several times and love it too- Nino's is just as good- both are great- don't make me choose! The highlights of our visit were the baked clams and the spaghetti carbonara- I hope I spelled that right- it was so delicious I am sure I will be craving it quite often now. Our server was good but it was actually another guy- Jonathon- who blew us away with HIS service. He wasn't even our server (although we wish he would have been) but came to check on us a couple of times- told us about the specials which our server hadn't done (yet I'm guessing)- I'm so glad he did because that carbonara was a special and it was our favorite part of the whole meal!

I have been to Ninos many
I have been to Ninos many times. However, it had been quite some time between trips and I had forgotten how much I enjoy the experience. The food is excellent but the service is even better. There is no restaurant in Atlanta where the service is as consistently good as it is at Ninos. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is perfect for a romantic date, as there is this quiet undercurrent of energy that just makes you feel good to be there. I'm not sure what is their secret, but it is consistently my favor place to go in Atlanta.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The perfect Italian meal
As first generation Italian Americans, it is always great to have a meal that could have been/has been experienced in southern Italy. Tony and Guiseppe serve interesting dishes and the traditional dishes that we see in Italy. A staple of the community that is not the fanciest setting but is the most genuine.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent. Ambience
The food was excellent. Ambience was very low key and romantic. Great place to go with your special someone, or even for a first date.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very Quaint Italian restaurant worth the drive from Alpharetta.
That is the best bruscetta.
The escargo was fabulous. The Osso Buco so tender and flavorful.
My guest had delicious scallops with risotto.
We need to return for dessert and coffee!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is consistently great at Nino's. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. It has a good variety and service is always very good.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nino's is one of my family's favorite restaurants in Atlanta. I highly recommend it. Food and service are always consistently great.

This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to this restaurant and we loved it. It was recommended by a co-worker who lives nearby. I ordered a veal dish and my husband had pasta. Both were exceptional. The house chianti was also good. We will return and take friends with us. The host and wait staff were intuitive, attentive and customer focused. Our overall experience was very good.

Great dinner experience
Good food, great service, excellent & inexpensive table wines that taste just like you're in Italy. Best part - quiet enough that you can actually have a conversation over dinner. Highly recommend!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Little Italy in our back yard
Nino's would be worth a long drive, but it is our default Italian comfort food choice because it is in the neighborhood, and because we are always met with a warm welcome from the friendly staff.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Itallian food....even
Great Itallian food....even brought my first generation Sicilian mother and she approved!
