I loved this place
Brunch was very good, my recommendation is to make a reservation, don't just walk-in, and also get there in advance, street parking can be a little hard to do.

My parents came into town
My parents came into town for Easter brunch and we had a great time! Our server was very pleasant and appropriately attentive. We were even surprised by a complimentary apple fritter from the chief with a tasty riccotta cream. The prices were reasonable and the food was incredible! Nutella banana French toast, sausage frittata, gnocci, it was all amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant for both family gatherings as well as intimate brunch or lunch. Great place!

Totally enjoyable food and ambiance.In Philly Italian market.
Don't forget to bring your own wine and cash. No credit cards excepted.
Would have been nice to look over the menu while waiting for dinner but none was offered with the 3 course.

Great neighborhood gem!
The food was exceptional! Each dish had very distinctive flavors and all were amazing. The service was also fantastic. Our server made us feel that we were being well taken care of and he was there if we needed anything - but we were not rushed at all. The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed. We had a very enjoyable evening!

Fresh, Authentic Italian
I've been here a handful of times now - a few times for dinner, one time for brunch - and I have never been disappointed. The ingredients are fresh and high-quality, the recipes are authentic (not to mention absolutely delicious), and the service is very professional. This place has definitely become a Philly favorite!

The service was above and beyond exceptional!! The food delicious - a must stop when you are in Philly!
Parking was a little tricky but we got lucky and found a spot 1/2 a block away!

Favorite Restaurant in Philly
My boyfriend and I go to Nina's for all of our special occasions. The bottom floor is great for romantic dining, while the upstairs can accommodate large groups. Love the BYOB and vegetarian choices.

Food was delicious and service
Food was delicious and service was outstanding. I really love what they have done outside. The flowers and trees really make it a cozy experience when dining outside.

The seasonal menu was great, the meatballs were tender and juicy. It is BYOB which is even more awesome. Laid back but the servers were nice.

Shared the meatballs and artichokes to start and had the spaghetti amatriciana and grilled hanger steak for entrees. More than enough food for two people and we had some to take home. Excellent food, nice service. Will definitely return. FYI it is Cash Only.

The staff is knowledgable and very attentive. I'd recommend this place to anyone!

Nice little byob
Chose this place based on reviews and was not disappointed. 4 of us had a great cheese plate and enormous, fresh salad for appetizers, as well as meatballs. Meatballs were only average. 2 of us had the Gnocchi for dinner; one with red sauce the other with a gargonzola. Gnocchi nice and soft although I preferred the red sauce. I ordered sausage, broccoli rabe and penne which was made with sausage from the Italian market - very good. Hanger steak replaced the pork chop for the night and it was fine...nothing special. A nice touch was since there were 4 of us, they added one extra serving to apps and deserts that typically only came with 3. They also kept the grilled bread coming and we always had waters topped off.

Nina's is wonderful!
A small gem of a restaurant in South Philly. Warm and welcoming, the food was delicious. Only drawback was an adjoining table of five very loud people.
We'll be back!

Dining Italian Market Style
The scene was great! My Family and I were a party of 6 we each ordered a different item for brunch. Everything was Delicious. The Service was Outstanding!! Parking wasn't bad either you can find street parking or very cheap lots in the neighborhood. I will definitely be returning for more deliciousness!

Best Gnocchi !!
Delicious light homemade gnocchi in several different sauces. Portions just right, not overwhelmingly huge.
Byob is great and prices were reasonable. Small corner gem but only drawback was noise level way above average.
Would definitely return.

Will definitely return!
For a group of 8 on a Saturday night, the service was great. Our wine bottles were opened quickly and food came out all together at a perfect pace. Everyone had a great time and loved their dish!

Nina's Trattoria is a true neighborhood gem. It's cozy atmosphere, friendly and attentive wait staff, and wonderful food make this a go-to place if you're looking for a relaxed and affordable Italian dinner (BYOB!) in the Italian Market neighborhood. I recommend making reservations, as the place is pretty small. Also, it's cash-only, so make sure you come prepared!

Great Little BYOB! Fantastic Food!
A small mom and pop kind of place in the heart of Italian Market. I've been here twice now and this is one of my favorite byob's! The service is excellent and the food always blows me away. Everything is very fresh and homemade. They make incredible risotto dishes and their gnocchi melts in your mouth. I would highly recommend this place for couples or big groups!

We visited Nina's to experience their food tasting. The food was good, service was very good and the atmosphere was warm and cozy. There was a large group in the restaurant which was a little rowdy but the staff happily relocated us to another area where it was quieter. We will definitely visit again.
