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.

They have not been around for so many years without having perfected their food and service.

The service could not have been better and the food was excellent. Try the lobster - it's great.

My wife and I have enjoyed dining at Nino's for several years now and it remains one of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta. 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.

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.

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.

Consistent excellence is the hallmark of a great restaurant, and that describes Nino's. The food is terrific, and each time we go, it is terrific. I have ordered their salmon numerous times, and every time it is cooked perfectly. Not very good, but perfectly. Nino's has been around forever, and rightfully so. It's always a great meal.

After eating there I can understand why they have been there 50 years. Owned by an Itlalian family that all works there. Everything about it was wonderful and the best Italian food I've had since Grandma's Sunday dinners. Took 2 friends to dinner that live in ATL, we all have a new favorite place in ATL, Can't wait to go back to ATL for Nino's, Thank you Nino's for a great meal.

I’ve been going to Nino’s since 1982 and it never disappoints. The food is top notch and it’s great for special occasions: birthday, anniversary, New Year’s Eve, etc. There are some new younger servers who lack the experience of the waiters who have been there for a long time. We had an issue with our order and they were very apologetic and comped desserts. Still the same great Nino’s policy of customer service.

Our waiter was not really cordial. He seemed a bit morose. I asked my son if he thought that I could make him smile. He wasn't rude but just seemingly not happily doing his job. It took 30 minutes to get bread. I had to ask for my empty water glass to be refilled, even though I had placed it at the edge of the table for him to see. Upon getting my food, I noticed the grouper was not flaky. I had to cut it with a knife. I thought that was unusual, but I thought maybe it was supposed to be cooked rare. However, after a few bites, I asked the waiter to take to the cook and see what he thought. He returned with it in a few minutes with it cooked completely, as well as replacing my veggies with freshly cooked veggies. He apollogized saying that he had rushed the cook. I commented, "no worries" and responded that it was now delicious. To this, he smiled! He comped us desert for his error. All was well after that. :-)

Despite a pleasant atmosphere, their "signature Caesar" salad was absolutely tasteless, the pasta was over-cooked and all my fellow diners had the same experience. Wishing Alfredo's hadn't closed!!

Sorry folks, we just did not care for Nino’s. We used to go there years ago and decided to go back and see what was going on there now. We sat in the restaurant area (as opposed to the Garden Room) and felt like it was the old time Italian ambiance that is homey and welcoming. Our waiter was not, but we remembered from way back that some of the help was a little crusty. Clams oreganato did not disappoint, but that’s where it all ended. We were barely done with the appetizer, when the entree showed up at the table. The veal parm was so heavily breaded that it was difficult to find the veal. It was kind of a gloppy mess. We registered surprise at how soon our food had shown up, but no one seemed to care. We ate and left. We will not return again.
