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.

In Atlanta overnight catching an early flight. Had eaten at Nino's in the late 80's decided to try it again 30 yrs later. Food was as remembered, authentic and freshly prepared. All enjoyed their dishes from the savory cream sauces topping a bed of pasta with seafood delicacies of scallops, shrimp, clams and lobster to the classic meat lasagna Sad side neighbor hood is not quite what it used to be so curb appeal

Excellent authentic Italian. More fine dining in their approach to the menu compared Italian chain restaurants. Generous portions reasonable price. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ve got to go just to see the dessert cart!

We were a group of 9 from out of town. We were blown away from the start to finish. Everything was delicious. Staff was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly! Would definitely return next time in town.

Our favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta, maybe America. The food is great -- very authentic, and each dish individually (and obviously carefully) prepared. But what keeps us coming back is that a visit to Nino's is like stepping back in time. The room is dark and quiet, nothing is trendy, none of the servers have tattoos or piercings, and all look and act like they care about their jobs. Which is to say, this place is nothing like 90 percent of Atlanta restaurants today. Love it.

Classic Italian "red sauce" place that this NJ family did not expect to find in the South. Felt like it was right out of Manhattan.

I had a great time at Ninos. The food and ambiance was wonderful. I would say the service was not that good as I felt rushed. They brought out our appetizers and main entrees together which didnt make sense.

Nino's is easy to overlook given location and longevity, but it never disappoints. The food is a close to West Village as it gets in Atlanta, but be ready for a noisy environment on a Friday or Saturday night. All veal dishes are outstanding and the wine list is reasonably priced, though a little limited if your looking for California wines.

We have been several time with friends, the food was good our server could have cared less about us however. He had a large table with a big white family guess he thought they tip better or he does not like gay people.

If you haven’t been here you need to go. One of the best meals I’ve had in Atlanta! From the drinks, bread and dinner it could not of been better. They were very busy but didn’t rush our party do 6. Next time I’m getting the recipe for the lemon drop martini it was so good.

My wifes Birthday dinner was a bad experience in this Restaurant. The place was packed no room to walk. I think its a fire hazard. Also the waiters keeped hitting my chair to get by to get into the kitchen. Im Italian so I know good Italian food. It was ok but I personally could have made our dished ten times better. The cost was high for what we got. The neighborhood was really bad, scary to park ing lots.

The location is a little heck-it but worth the travel. Small intimate restaurant, with a nice, warm outside area. The service was excellent, the food was too. I will be going back soon to try a few more dishes on the menu. The wine recommended was also a hit.

The food was phenomal. The service left much to be desired. Our waiter seemed as though he wasn't interested in our table. We had been there 15 minutes before our drinks were ordered and after that he seemed short with us. It almost felt like he was annoyed. It really turned us off from what would have otherwise been a spectacular annivesary dinner.

A week earlier on week night Nino’s was perfect spot. Dined with five friends for good food and conversation. This visit with four of us on a Saturday night the food was delicious but the noise level made conversation impossible. It was crowded so service suffered. A big disappointment. Lesson learned. Never again on a busy Saturday night.

Seems like the chef has changed. Michella pasta was salty and a lot richer than previous visits. Caesar salad was very dry, mostly no dressing.

We love Nino's. Started with terrific calamari, hot out of the fryer, super crispy and fresh with a yummy slightly spicy marinara. Ice cold, crispy caesar salad, gnocchi with bolognese. That little bruschetta they set on the table is so delicious. We had the affogato for dessert which was the perfect ending to a great meal. I had hoped to take home half of the gnocchi but it was so good I ate it all. Excellent food, great, old world atmosphere, love it there. My son just wanted pasta with meat sauce, and they made it for him. Very accommodating.
