First class treatment from soup to nuts marks this eastside shining star where terrific Northern Italian cuisine produce a great dining experience; a pianist adds to the "romantic mood". -Zagat

Nino's Ratings and Reviews
The lack of service was horrible Toward the. End of the meal what I presumed to be a owner said the computer system had been down for a day Of course the same person ultimately after waiting for a server for 15 minutes to give a cocktail order said oh I thought you were waiting for a 3 rd Obviousky whatever was the issue the owner handled it poorly. Was satisfied with the food and will give it one more try
Nino's never fails to please. Our dinner Saturday night was for a group of friends, some of whom were very picky eaters, yet we all left the restaurant in a happy mood. The staff went out of its way to accommodate everyone. The ambiance, of course, is great, and so was the singing and piano work of Chris Barrett. I hope to return soon. The food, incidentally, is very good.
We went to Nino’s with my family for the first time Friday night and we absolutely loved it. The food and service was amazing - not to mention the man playing the piano. What a perfect night. We just made reservations for when my family comes back into the city for our annual Christmas celebration.
Been here several times before and the food, service, and ambience is still outstanding and stellar. Highly recommend the Lobster Fra Diavolo - great portion with incredible taste, meaty, and fresh with just the right amount of spices. The linguine which accompanies the Lobster is cooked to perfection and very delicious. Their salads were also fresh, crunchy, and not heavy with the dressing. Service was attentive and professional. Definitely recommend Nino's to anyone looking forward to classic Italian dining! :)
I had a very delicious meal with a friend here the other night. The duck risotto was very good and the lamb chops were outstanding! Cooked perfectly, and very juicy and tender. Service was helpful and attentive. It's a little on the expensive side but worth it if you want to splurge a little. Nino himself came over and offered us free after dinner drinks. A great night!
Waiter pushed to get order immediately and after being asked for more time, persisted. While it was a Sat night, there were several empty tables, so no need for the pressure to move so quickly. Plates were cleared as we were eating, literally.
For 2 people to spend well over $230, the service was very amateurish. Food was excellent. Old time Italian, well-prepared.
Nino's has been a local Upper East Side (UES) fixture for many years, reasons being that the food, service, and ambience is outstanding! My favorite Italian dish is anything with pasta. I've had pasta in many different restaurants in NYC, and I must say that Nino's pasta dishes have the right texture, amount, and seasoning. Their meat dishes are also cooked to perfection and look absolutely succulent. Waiters/servers are really friendly and professional. The overall restaurant ambience is warm, inviting, and cozy, making me feel welcomed. I also think their prices are reasonable, especially here in the UES. In addition, Nino's has a live pianist performing on the weekends. His music appeals to all generations, thereby augmenting my eating experience. Highly recommend Nino's and hopefully you'll enjoy this fine restaurant!
The owner Nino and his staff always go to special lemgths to make sure your occasion is perfect and exactly what you asked for ! they are attentive to every detail and exacting ! and we had a beautiful birthday party with much happiness and pleasure ! Nino even kindly allowed us to bring our own singer and kindly let us use his piano . It's a delightful cozy atmosphere with beautiful music and excellent food thank you Nino for making my birthday party so special !!! Will return again and again ! Genevieve and friends
Gustavo our server was very attentive and helpful during our selection of dishes. We arrived a few minutes before 7pm and was seated right away. We advised them we had a living social voucher and was given that specific menu. The seafood salad, the meatballs with pine nuts and raisin in a well seasoned tomato sauce. The seafood over linguine was over top for me. Meal completed with chocolate mousse and a cup of green tea. I opt out for the white wine but it did not go to waste. Restaurant week is coming up and there's a menu for that too. Can't wait to venture back and try something different.
We made reservations for Mothers Day Brunch after viewing their brunch menu on Open Table. When we arrived we were told that the dinner menu was the only one available. Complete bait and switch. While the food was great (as always) the misrepresentation left a bad taste.
Unless there is a restroom of which I am unaware, people with mobility issues may have difficulty accessing bathrooms, and the toilets within. Otherwise, I have no complaints. The food is splendid and the decor is traditional and inviting, a respite from City hyperactivity.
