Superb time at Nino's
I dined early Saturday night with 4 ladies, and we all enjoyed the dinner and the music. The service was outstanding, staff treated us like Queens. Nino himself was very impressionable.

Great time at Nino's!
Definitely, my favorite restaurant in NYC! I been dining at Nino's many times with my friends, and been always treated as VIP table. The hospitality was premier, the staff- professional, friendly and very attentive to our every need.
The food is OUTSTANDING! Excellent choices on the menu and fabulous specials. From the great fresh appetizers, as the Cesar Salad made fresh table side, to the amazing main course dishes, as Loster Fradiavola over linguini pasta( one of my favorites:) )... DELICIOUS!
And, the homemade fresh desserts are to die for...so yummy!
The ambiance is great, with the amazing piano player that will make your night special!
I highly recommend it!

Delicious Food and Great Service!
We had a wonderful lunch at Nino's for Mother's day! All choices were delicious. Definitely try the meatball appetizer and the daily seafood special--on Sunday it was seafood over linguini in a Fra Diavolo sauce. Sam provided great service and was very attentive to our requests. Thanks!!!

Sammy Extremely attentive
I really wasn't surprised by the superb food since I checked out the other reviews of this restaurant. If you are looking for a place with great atmosphere and attentive service this restaurant is for you. More important is the quality of the food. Although pricey I thoroughly enjoyed the SOFT SHELL CRAB . Other dishes brought to the other tables looked delicious as well. I consider myself to be fairly knowledgable when it comes to a great dining experience and take it from me-- If the menu looks a little pricey to you skip the extras, spend a few dollars more and enjoy a fantastic meal. Highly recommended!!! Thanks Sammy we Love You

Saturdays Ninos Rocks !!!!
My bride and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary with a fabulous home made Oricchiette pasta and Rib eye steak . We ended our meal with one of our favorite desert Tiramisu : To add to the quality of the food was the excellent service we received: attentive, friendly and impeccable.
"We will be back," the Captain Sam needs to return back to acting because he is a real actor , and we meant it. A great meal; a wonderful memory.

Always a great meal and fun.
Always a great meal and fun. There was a large party on the night we attended, and the place was crowded, but the food was exceptional and the evening was a lot of fun. It was a little louder than usual with the large crowd, but the use of a curtain to contain the large event is a very effective and useful idea. Nino separates the party from other diners and the system works well.

Best dinner I've had, maybe ever...
This beautifully decorated, candle lit restaurant was the most delightful gem we stumbled on while we were in New York. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive, and the cuisine was melt in your mouth memorable. The live music by the Sinatra voiced piano player was soothing and romantic. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to have an ambient and palate indulgent evening to remember. Fantastic!

Upper East Side Gem
Great food and impeccable service... Wait staff seemed to appear out of nowhere to attend to every need. Nino greeted our party and personally made sure we had a great dining experience. A great place to go to get away from typical tourist area restaurants, yet a short cab ride away from midtown. We will definitely return!

Restaurant week Gem
Often Restaurant week is a chance to try somewhere you might not otherwise due to the price and although you do not usually get a full portion it is still delish and exciting. This experience was one of the rare gems. The service was great. The portions were perfect. An all around pleasure. We are going back Thursday.

Having the piano playing in
Having the piano playing in the background was wonderful. Great pricing during restaurant week, otherwise too expensive. Surprised to see $16 for a glass of wine

My wife and I visited Nino's during Restaurant Week and the experience was outstanding the meatball appetizers were the best we have ever had. The Zuppe from Pesci was loaded with seafood. Defintely one of NYC's best Italian eateries.

Everything was perfect. We will definitely return. You will thoroughly it.

We enjoyed the food and restaurant very much. Not too noisy and comfortable seating. Would return again.

The ambiance was great, epically
The ambiance was great, epically the live music. Servers were very prompt and efficient, working seamlessly as a unit instead of individually which was a unique experience. The food was good but being a vegetarian the options were rather plain/limiting.

Classic Italian Restaurant
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.

Quiet Lunch Spot
Nino's is a great place for a quiet lunch or business meeting. The food remains consistently great and the service attentive.

Nino is every where!
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.

Once again a great experience
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!

Nino's is Great!
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.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Entertainment is too loud
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.
