Italian
Nanni Ristorante in Rochelle Park successfully combines Old World charm and dependability with exciting cuisine and an array of specials sure to please the palate. Menu highlights include the anticipated pasta, seafood, veal, beef and poultry sprinkled with surprises such as frog legs and calves’ livers. Seasoned veteran Chef Paolo Gilberto, formerly of Archer’s in Fort Lee, bought into the start-up Nanni in 1986 before bringing along Archer maitre d’ and employees Manny Moreira and Lino Queirolo. The three have brought simple elegance to this busy Passaic Street restaurant, and have created some of the finest Italian dishes in the area. Nanni’s wine list features selections from Italy, France and California and a piano player soothes the mood on Friday and Saturday evenings. Step out of a busy day and into a relaxing, traditional Italian venue for a few hours and be pleasantly surprised with good food, wine and excellent service in a comfortably elegant atmosphere.

    A delicious authentic Italian meal served in old world style by attentive and knowledgeable staff. Pasta dishes comparable and satisfying as you can find anywhere outside of Rome itself! Fish which is fresh and a chef willing to prepare it “al piacere” ( to your liking) You will not be disappointed

    Every thing was wonderful could’ve been a little more pasta with the monkfish and the only complaint I have is there too many tables in the room it’s like going through a corn maze to get to your table. The food the service everything else was wonderful

    Nanni Ristorante is a traditional Italian restaurant in Rochelle Park, the food is always prepared fresh and abundant. Traditional menu items, you can count on are on point. Their burrata and fresh mozzarella is light and delicious. All fish dishes are presented with flair and eye appealing. Drinks are always make quickly and service is by far the most accommodating and friendly you will find anywhere. There is a reason it's been there for such a long time....try it - it will be your go to place.

    First time here, and was pleasantly surprised ! From the beginning , we were treated as if we were regulars. The service was really top notch. We started with two appetizers : prosciutto and melon and the cold antipasto. Everything was high quality and the portions were gigantic. I had the spaghetti carbonara for my main , which was heavenly! My fiancé had the veal shank osso bucco , which was so tender it melted in your mouth. For dessert , we had the tiramisu, which was to die for ! Drinks were strong and the wine was delicious ! We will definitely be going back to Nannis !

    About 30 years outdated. Seems to be a favorite with local crowd but for a place with table cloth and valet, it doesn’t really meet the expectations. The interior was nice and quiet but outdated. Bread seemed like supermarket baguette and came with butter in wrappers, drinks were strong but tasted cheap. The pasta was excellent however and main course well above average. I wouldn’t hesitate ordering to go from there.
