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 memor

A consistently great dinner. The veal parmigiana is the best in Atlanta. My husband said the lobster fra diavolo was amazing. Shared tiramisu was a great ending!

Celebrating friends in town, my husband’s birthday and just being at Nino’s again. My husband had the Lamb meatball pasta special and I had the fish and risotto special, both which were delicious!

Another tasty dinner at Nino's. Food and service was very good even with our server handling a large party while we were there. Happy to have Ninos in the neighborhood.

Nino's isn't flashy, but the food is great and the service is very friendly. We all had excellent pasta and a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend it.

Ninos is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. We are hooked on the eggplant parmigiana. The screened patio is our favorite spot, whether cold or hot outside!

Dined with friends who agreed with us that the food was delicious and authentic Italian. The feeling is a little "old world" and reminded us of some of our favorite restaurants in NYC. Lovely meal and evening....Thanks, Nino's!!

Nino's is an Atlanta institution, and deservedly so. The menu is classic, yet doesn't feel old fashioned. It has never disappointed. I always look forward to dinner at Nino's.

A nice, traditional Italian neighborhood place. The food and pricing were in sync and quality was good. The highlight was a very personable and attentive waiter. We found it a relaxing place for dinner after a busy day.

Not sure how his restaurant continues to be included in many “Best Or” lists. The quality of the food was below what you would get at a decent Italian chain restaurant. The waiter, while being efficient, was detached to the point of being rude. His conversation was limited to one word questions, “done?” “good?” “water?” And yes, he did speak fluent English, he just chose not to. The multiple times I said thank you when something was served or taken away, he never responded to. Not once. The maitre de was equally grumpy upon our on time arrival for our reservation. It was also noted that this was a birthday dinner but they made no mention of that. Ultimately though, it’s about the food and it was dull and generic. Save your time and money and avoid this place.

We dined here last year and it was amazing. This time the food was still great but our service was awful. Our waiter acted incredibly annoyed that we had children with us even though they were really quiet and well behaved (sometimes they’re not but on this particular night they were really good so I was even more shocked the server was rude to them). My husband and I split the veal chop so we could have room for dessert and it was delicious but the steak knives need to be replaced because they’d barely cut through the meat. The owner was very nice and apologetic when my husband told him on our way out how bad the service was. Disappointing for a $200 dinner to feel like your server can’t wait for you to leave.

Mark’s service was his usual extraordinary effort. His attentiveness made celebrating 5 birthdays the occasion we hoped it would be. The food was outstanding. There is no other Italian restaurant in Atlanta for us.

A small place that was quiet the night we went, but I could imagine it getting loud. The food was amazing, best Italian I've had in a while. Well worth going.

Both entries were OUTSTANDING!! I'd give my eyeteeth for the tomato sauce recipe. Beyond YUM YUM.
The atmosphere was comfortable and welcoming and the waiter was great.
We hope to return soon, but not soon enough.

This was our first time at Nino’s. We were an hour late for our reservation (I-85 was completely stopped for an accident), and the reception was still amazing. We were seated at a lovely patio table, and the excellent glass of Syrah soothed our weary souls. And we were bowled over by the quality and freshness of our food. Such care and attention. Will definitely go back!!!

Love this restaurant — great value , amazing food and wonderfully attentive staff. My biggest complaint is that it seems like the kitchen can’t keep up with the size of the crowd the restaurant seats. We’ve found ourselves waiting a long time in between ordering and food service.
