Nino's, opened in 1968, has been owned and operated by Antonio Noviello since 1982. Originally from the Amalfi Coast of southern Italy, Antonio worked in Monte Carlo, then Bermuda where he met his wife Helen, an Atlanta resident. After moving to Atlanta in 1981, Antonio's life-long dream of owning his own restaurant became a reality when he purchased Nino's. For more than twenty years, Antonio has taken pride in serving authentic Italian Cuisine made with fresh, imported ingredients and cooked to order for each guest. His reputation for serving exceptional Italian cuisine has attracted devoted locals who return time and again, along with a long list of celebrities (see below) who had heard of Nino's reputation and stopped in to sample the fare. Many of the dishes on Nino's menu are original recipes brought from Italy by Antonio and his brother Giuseppe. Antonio invites you to relax and savor some of the great culinary treasures of Italy in a memorable dining experience.

The restaurant from reservation until we left made the entire experience special to each of the guests. The food was exceptional as well as the service, I would highly recommend Nino's. They can make any of their dishes with gluten free pasta, which one of my guests were over the moon about as her diet requires it. The wine list made those drinking happy and we all walked out remarking how amazing the service was.

Ninos is our favorite place for Italian. Food is amazing especially the lobster fra diavlo. The new cannoli cake is amazing. We always get great service at Ninos.

This is the the second time at Nino's. The staff at Nino's were friendly and attentive. We had a couple drinks and bottles of wine. All good. 2/3 meals were satisfactory, good... not great. The veal chop was under cooked and tough. Maybe bad meal selection on my part. They've been in business for 50 years, so they must be doing something right. Could have caught the kitchen on a slow night.

Food was excellent, dining experience excellent although our waiter seemed less than thrilled be waiting on us....perhaps it was our mispronunciation of the Italian dishes that irked him. Hey, we tried.

We have loved Nino's for a long time, but hadn't been there in years. We were so excited to go back, and it didn't disappoint. The food is amazing, so fresh and delicious. Alessandra and Micah are doing a spectacular job of running the restaurant. We were celebrating a special occasion, and this was the perfect place to do so. It's romantic and lovely, and the service is great. Also, excellent wine choices. I highly recommend Nino's. You will be wanting to go back for more.

Nino's is one of the standards we hope will stick around through the change and growth in town. The food is great, service good, prices reasonable and you can actually hear your companions talk at the table! Our Italian exchange student rated it "like my mom's!".

We always enjoy dinner at Ninos. We have taken my parents for their birthdays several times and also our own birthdays or just dinner with friends. The inside seems dark so We always sit on the enclosed patio. It overlooks Cheshire bridge so not scenic but it’s not noticeable. It isn’t air conditioned but there are fans. The food is always good especially the shrimp and pasta and lasagna. You can get half portions of many entrees so it’s a good value. The bread is really good! This is a classic Italian restaurant.

My family and I are on the hunt for classic NY Italian, and this was definitely it. We ordered the Burrata. So soft and moist. Great appetizer. For entrees we had the Veal Romano Was amazing. Very tasty. My husband had an Vodka Sauce Pasta dish - no matter what it was, I was eating off his plate too. The sauce was very good. For dessert we split the Baileys Cheesecake. Very very good. Will definitely be returning!!

This was our first visit after a recommendation from Belinda Skelton.

My husband is from NYC so very picky about Italian restaurants.

We both loved to! They do everything old school and it felt like we had ducked into an Italian restaurant in Manhattan.

You will find no Buckhead glitz, no industrial chic but instead old style dark wood and carpet... waiters who have worked there for years, a dessert cart, quiet ... and food prepared and cooked the same traditional ways.

The food was fantastic!
We had linguini white clam
Eggplant parm
Spaghetti meatballs
Caesar salad
Calamari
Coconut cake
Cannoli cake
Everything was fantastic!
And you can get half portions which allows for trying more things!

Oh yes we’ll be back there soon.

We dined at 5:30 on a Friday night and it was not super busy but by the time we left it was starting to get packed so I would say to make a reservation.

Nino's just celebrated it 50th year in operation, and deservedly so! Consistently authentic Italian, great service, friendly atmosphere. It's not the newest or the sexiest, but it's cozy and never fails to delight.

We’ve visited Ninos and may other Italian restaurants over the years including a few in Italy. I’ve never had a Vitello Saltimboca that was so poorly prepared. Instead of prosciutto being layered atop the veal cutlet, it was tossed on the veal. It was my job in Nino’s subdued lighting to figure out how to position the ham to get the taste I was expecting and used to.

Jeffery did a great job managing 8 of our party while awaiting the late arrival of the final 2.
We will return during cooler weather to try the front dining area. Parking can be a challenge.
Will ask to be seated in Jeffery's section.

I've been a fan of Nino's for YEARS. I'm almost reluctant to write this gleaming review bc I LOVE it's small, cozy, authenticity (ownership, food, interiors,+ gregarious wait staff). And selfishly -- I do not want all of Atlanta there!;0) Never once has Nino's disappointed. 3 of us arrived for a "gal pals dinner," we had a lot to catch up on, and as the last 2 days have past my friends have been repeatedly texted on how MUCHhhh they just loved Nino's (food, drink + atmosphere).
