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

If you want authentic Italian food this is the place to go! After returning from a visit to the Almafi Coast I searched for a restaurant with similar food. I found. Nino’s and the chef is actually from that region of Italy. The food is so good. There is nothing bad on the menu. My favorites are the gnocchi and eggplant Parmesan.

Having been raised in a heavily populated Italian area in New Jersey and being Italian myself, it is rare to find a place that brings back the wonderful memories of the old-world feel of true Italian atmosphere and food. The Zuppa Di Pesce was outstanding and my wife's spaghetti and meatballs was the same.

Well done!

When coming back to Atlanta, Nino;s was the place where I wanted to eat. I love good Northern Italian food and Nino's does a great job. The calamari, veal and spagetti with clam sauce were excellent. The homemade deserts were devine. The only place where they did not do a good job was on the mussels but a good bottle of wine made up for that!

Unfortunately Nino’s has seen better days. Once a strong choice for classic southern Italian cuisine, the place has slipped considerably. Poor, Inattentive service combined with with average food and very loud dining room insures that we won’t be back again. Too many other choices in the ATL for food Italian fare. It’s a shame as Nino’s used to be a “ go to”.

Although I had lived in Atlanta for many years - visiting a neighboring restaurant a lot - I had never been to Nino's. It was such a wonderful experience that I brought my husband back the next night to enjy the food again - and, it was just as good! This is my new go-to Italian restaurant in Atlanta. Wonderful food!!!

I ate there 20 years ago and hated it, so I decided that it was time to give it another try. I loved the burrata salad. It was served with arugula and prosuitto and was perfect. My vegetarian pasta entree was just ok. I was pretty disappointed in it to be blunt. I think it just needed more tomato sauce and less cheese..

Main courses were good! Pasta was not up to Nino’s usual standard. Service was terrible. The wait staff was completely overwhelmed between a large private party and several large groups in the main dining room.

We had to ask several servers to find our waiter to order drinks, order dinner to replenish drinks and for the check. Very unusual as service is always terrific. It was just an off night due to the volume of guests.

Waiter was not your best. Chicken Parm was burnt, replaced and was ridiculously hot like it had been pre cooked and reheated to melt the cheese. It was a soupy mess. Waiter missed burrata appetizer and food took forever. Not a great Christmas Eve meal. First and last

Continues to be the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta. We actually met a doctor in a pizzeria in New York who had gone to med school at Emory and he remembered Nino's as the best in Atlanta as well. Even on a crowded Christmas eve, our family of six had an outstanding dinner. From the fried calamari appetizer to the multiple desserts, everyone loved everything. This is a " don't miss" if you dine out in Atlanta.

An original, old school, Italian restaurant with excellent cuisine. Places like this are getting hard to find and I think are far better than any chain restaurants out there.
