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 38 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 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.
Alessandra Antonio's daughter has taken over the restaurant with her husband Micah. We invite you to enjoy a memorable Italian dining experience.

We’ve been coming here for years. It’s one of the last oldest Italian restaurants in Atlanta. The food and service is always outstanding.

My wife and I dined here with relatives from North Carolina on Sunday evening. It was a good evening and we were happy with service and food. We have been dining here for almost thirty years. It is our favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta. The family operating the restaurant has owned it since the early eighties. We hope the will be here many ,ore years.

In town visiting relatives and thought I’d give Ninos a try. Old school ambiance and great food. The Grilled Garlic Rosemary Veal Chop was excellent. The only negative was that our waiter, AFTER we were served the bottle of wine we ordered, mentioned he should have brought us the Reserve list. Little late for that! Regardless we loved the place and the food.

Nino’s is my favorite Atlanta restaurant. Our experience this evening was a good one, but service was not what it usually is. My party sat out on the porch for a change because it was a lovely evening weather wise. The food was excellent, the ambiance e was excellent, the price was reasonable, but our waiter forgot about us. No water refills, for example.

When we brought the lack of service to another server’s attention, the original server magically appeared and was suddenly attentive. There were no apologies from anyone, no discounts offered, etc. We were surprised. This was not a typical situation for this fine, revered restaurant. Consequently, we’ll give them another chance. Next time, however, we’ll sit inside instead of outside.

Food was better than Olive Garden but not sure it was worth the price. The restaurant seemed to have ambiance on high; it was still daylight outside but we were seated in the main dining room which was very dark & candlelit. Looking around I noticed how much the place really needs to be cleaned. It’s old, I get it, but I don’t want to know everything the ambiance was hiding.

I celebrated my birthday here with my husband and a couple of friends, food was delicious and the service was excellent! I actually end up trying a server’s suggestion for that day, didn’t disappoint! Hubby LOVES tiramisu and he says Nino’s has the best he have tried so far in Atlanta. We’ll definitely be back! 😊

The place is somewhat male-oriented. The managers and waiters do not remember lone women who frequent Nino's no matter how often. Otherwise I love the place, patriarchal tho it may be🌝.

The service is always excellent, the food delicious, and the drink options robust. I would highly recommend Nino's as an exceptional spot to have an intimate dining experience with a loved one or even a small gathering of close friends and associates.

Below average dinning experience , don't order a Bloody Mary - no horse hashish or celery on site , returned it …. veal was small portioned and just average at best . The sauce on the chicken franchisee was the exact sauce for my veal - carrot cake was good - came from outside vendor.

This place was a pleasant surprise until at the end of my evening my waiter told me no rush but other people are waiting for this table. This was infuriating specially while I still had tiramisu and wine left on my bottle to drink. As a world traveler this experience is a first for me. When you are paying good money for dinner in dimmed lights you expect better service. I will certainly not go back anymore for the Americanized Italian dinner.
