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.

Nino's - Atlanta Ratings and Reviews
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.
We really miss Alfredo’s so we thought we would try Ninos. We had been once before, years ago but loved Alfredo’s so much better. The interior is cozy and warm with booths on the perimeter of the room and tables in the center. We requested a booth since it was a date night but we were told there wasn’t one available ( there were at least three available) We were seated at a two top in the middle of the room shoulder distance from the four top next to us. The waiter came to ask for our drink order then bread and bruschetta arrived at the table. The bruschetta was good but we really missed the garlic rolls we remembered from before. The waiter took our order ( he did not offer any specials, I overheard another waiter later in the evening offer them to another table) The salads were just okay , raspberry vinaigrette was a little too strong and sweet. The lasagna was good but not memorable. We did not order dessert or coffee. There are so many other better restaurants for Italian food in Atlanta. We won’t be back :(
restaurant ambiance felt like you were in Italy. Very impressed with the service considering it was New Years Eve and the restaurant is small but was very busy. Homemade pastas were outstanding and good wine selections at reasonable prices. I would highly recommend Ninos if you like authentic Italian food. Our waiter was actually from Italy. We will definitely go back.
We went to Nino’s on New Year’s Eve and the experience was underwhelming. Most restaurants are crowded on NYE, but they had obviously crammed extra tables into their small space and it was miserable. We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time and sat for 10 minutes without seeing a waiter. The food was good, especially the baked clam appetizer, but we won’t go back.
My friend and I went here for a date night. We both agreed that the food was generally uninspired, save the pasta vodka side we ordered. The bruschetta presented at the beginning, while free, seemed like an after thought. 4 tiny pieces of bread, with only a small portion of rather bland bruschetta. The 2 dishes ordered were nothing special and lacked depth of taste. We both agreed we would have had a better meal if we went to Macaroni Grill. We both felt ill later, and can only think it was due to the meal. The pasta orecchiette ordered by my friend was sent back. As an Italian American, she couldn’t even eat it. We won’t be dining here ever again.
The most impressive thing about Nino's is the consistency. We've been coming here for over 15 years and it is always good. (As it has been around over 50 years should prove). It still has the best marinara sauce I've ever tasted. Best calamari. Cozy atmosphere. It is just a winner.
Excellent food was disappointed at the host was this the Owner? If so he did not show us any hospitality and passed us off quickly to the table. I have eaten at Ninos for 25 years and have been gone to Florida for last 10 years. Remember better curteosy in earlier years of restaurant.
Never disappoints. This small, charming classic Italian kitchen always delivers a delicious meal in a friendly, quiet atmosphere. Servers are attentive and friendly from start to finish. We always leave so glad to have gone... whether for a special occasion or just wanting an everyday quiet good meal turned special. Thank you Nino's for staying true to your course.
We have been going to Ninos for quite a few years. The food is great but one of the main reasons is to have Dan as our server. Dan is so knowledgeable on the wines and every bottle he has suggested we have been happy with. We are sorry to see him go, and I hope when we return and have a different server we will feeling the same!
