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

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.

Nino's is one of my all time favorite restaurants. We love taking our clients there as the quality of the food and service is consistently very good. It has the feel of an older New York Italian "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant .

Our recent visit to Nino's, our first return to this venerable restaurant in over a decade, was a surprise and a delight. The dining room's noise level was quite comfortable. My wife and I could actually hear each other's voices without having to shout. Many other Atlanta Area restaurants are just too loud! The service was attentive, knowledgeable, and polite. The menu was quite interesting, containing a varied selection of Italian dishes. The items that we ordered were well prepared, served in a timely manner, and, best of all, delicious. Nino's is back on our list of "go to" places for special occasions, and for those well-deserved Italian meals that we oft times seek, for not particular reason. We'll be back soon. It was, indeed, a great place for us to celebrate out 49th wedding anniversary.

Mark was the best per usual. Spaghetti Eva is amazing, even more so now that we know who it’s named after. Neighborhood Gem, always our favorite.

The setting was perfect. I understand the need for a reservation. The food was great and the service was nice. I’m always nervous about going to Italian places because I don’t speak the language, but it was very nice being here. I appreciate the parking lot too.

WE had not visited this neighborhood gem and landmark Italian restaurant in a couple of years. WOW!! The food is still excellent, the service professional and efficient and the ambiance fun and semi-frisky for a Saturday night out. Let's hope it stays around with all the "modernization" and residential construction going on in Midtown. Support this restaurant and ENJOY!!

I am sure someone looking for romantic would really enjoy, but I found it too dark. My dinner was not the best of this dish that I have had in the past. A friend ordered a pasta dish which I thought was much better than my choice and less expensive which it should be. Another friend was disappointed in that they changed the sauce on the special pasta selection, but decided to try it anyway. She would not order it again. But our server was very pleasant. It was a touch of old world, which is really nice.

A group of friends took me here for my birthday. One friend had called ahead to see if he could wear his sleeveless muscle shirt. He was told yes. When he got there the host said he can not wear his muscle shirt inside but said we would have to sit outside. We sat outside but he wasn't happy being told one thing and then told another. Oddly, we saw two woman where sleeveless tops dining inside so technically this seemed discriminatory.

Once seated outside in the enclosed patio they had oscillating fans that were set at a high speed since there was no A/C on the patio. It kept blowing strongly across our table with each pass cooling our meals off and a bit eye drying.

Finally, there was a bright spotlight pointing at our table, in our face. We asked to redirect the spot light, waiter said he couldn't move it. After about 30 min, we asked again to aim the light away from us, he reached up and moved it but seemed annoyed at our request.

The food was really tasty but the older staff didn't seem to care one way or another if we were happy. I doubt I will go back.
