I love to dine at Nino's, especially for lunch because most of my friends prefer lunch get togethers . I like the quiet and pleasant atmosphere, the decor, the special attention given to all.
Fine restaurant near Columbus Circle, close to Carnegie Hall. Wide selections on the menu, Cesar salad prepared at the table, but no anchovies. A bit pricey, especially for desserts, but they were excellent.
Disappointed - food was mediocre. Staff was attentive, but not very experienced.
Excellent Italian restaurant, with attentive service. Reasonable prices. Nice wine list by the glass or bottle.
I have visited Nino's many times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and I appreciate that the staff leaves you alone to enjoy your meal. They are not constantly hounding you to ask how is it?
Live piano music , very hospitable staff , exotic desserts they make in front of you -- flambé was really good. Giant sized tasty steaks. They were very accommodating on vegetarian pasta options for the kids. Only disappointment was there weren't more tuscan wines by the glass , but they did have a montepulciano that i enjoyed and it was well priced.
The food was good yet overpriced for the ingredients, portions, and presentation. The service was absolutely terrible. The waitress was rude and snippy when asked to further explain one of the specials. I ordered Moscato and was given Saviaugn Blanc (which i loathe), when i questioned it I was basically yelled at and told that is Moscsto. I drank it and O how I wish I made her take it back and had water instead considering it was $12 per glass!. We asked for cheese and butter and were looked at as if we asked for the Brooklyn Bridge to be moved. I always tip 18% - 20% but tonight it took all my strength to just leave 10% and not say something to the manager when leaving. Not worth the trip and will definitely NOT return.
Great food on a living social voucher. Good cheap wine, excellent filet mignon, tasty lobster tail..
Did not disappoint. Exceptional Italian cuisine and service.
food was really good my wife loved her meal we had a great evening we will go back
Nice ambiance. Food a B..tomatoes for appetizer and specials cold, as well as cheese. It felt like just got out of frig. However, ravioli an " A"!
This is a restaurant for a decent-good meal, and one you may visit again, but not one of those at the top.
Surprisingly good; lovely food, pleasant waiting staff, nice atmosphere.
We happened on Nino's Tuscany looking for a pre-show dinner at NY City Center and were very pleasantly surprised. We were the first customers of the evening and got special attention from Giorgio, our server. We started with perfectly made Martinis and took Giorgio's suggestion for table side-prepared Caesar salads and a perfect Porterhouse for two (with leftovers for steak 'n eggs breakfast the next morning). The recommended sides of creamed spinach and German style potatoes were also perfect. Nino's has a nice selection of wines by the glass (after all, it was pre-theater) and a full wine list of exceptional Italian wines. Also available was a Restaurant Week menu with choices we really would want to order. We will be back and Nino's is now on our short list for great places to visit before a show.
Best breadsticks in the city. Attentive staff. Great food and atmosphere. You can have a conversation without shouting.
Food and wine way over-priced. Ravioli and capellini with vegetables were good, but nothing to write home about.
Nino's Tuscany restaurant is a nice, quiet place to have dinner. We spent four nights in New York and this was the first restaurant we went to on 9/24/16. Our waiter was great - very attentive and friendly, but didn't hover. We were there pretty late (10:00 p.m.), so I'm not sure my critique of the food is valid, but here goes. My wife and I both had Caeser salads. Both salads were very warm and had too much of an anchovy flavor. I had the Chicken Jeter, which was OK, but didn't pop with flavor. My wife had the Rigatoni all Vodka and it was outstanding. She said it was the best she has ever had (and she has tried it a lot). We finished by sharing the Chocolate Mousse, which was just right. We had a nice time and would recommend it for the service and the Rigatoni.
Food and service were great. Wine was way overpriced. I'd love to go back, but won't because cost of wine there is over my budget.
I didn't attend personally, but made the reservation for one of the VPs I support. He said the meal was great!! Thank you.
Waiters and restaurant personnel could not have been more congenial and accommodating; we thoroughly enjoyed both our meals, appetizers and dessert.
Did not feel like I was in Tuscany at all. Food didn't taste overly fresh. Only the Caesar salad was above average. Wine selection by glass very disappointing.
This place is fantastic. Hands down the best chicken dish I have ever eaten. The atmosphere is very inviting, the food outstanding and the service top of the line. Our waiter, Christian, could not have been better. Attentive, recommended a fantastic wine, gave a great presentation of the food and ordering, and very attentive. We were given some great recommendations for appetizers and dinners, with all being superb. All four of us had a great dining experience. I will be back for sure and highly recommended this restaurant to others.
Thank you for a terrific afternoon
The restaurant was quiet and we were seating right away. Our waiter Christian was very attentive and helpful answering questions we had regarding our food. He checked up on us frequently and always so polite and pleasant.
I ordered fried calamari that was likely breaded and came with spicy sauce that was super delicious. For entree we ordered salmon which was cooked to perfection and served with creamy mashed potatoes. To finish off we ordered tiramisu which was divine. We also ordered sangria which Christian made specifically for us and was delicious! I'm definitely recommending this restaurant as one of my favorites!
Our dinner was wonderful from start to finish. Everything was delicious & the service was outstanding. Christian, our waiter, was fantastic! We will definitely be back!!
I had a great lunch with my work team at Nino's. The food was very good, reasonably priced and served in a timely fashion. Also, the atmosphere was very good! We chose to order off of the lunch prefix menu which was a great choice if you have a group. I strongly recommend it!
I found my chicken dish on the salty side. Service was below average. It felt like the busboy was serving as a waiter. But they added a 20 percent tip to the bill for a table of four, a first in my lifetime of dining experience. Not a surprise that the restaurant was 70 percent empty on a Friday evening.
Very good value. The prix fixe menu is perfect for pre theatre. Friendly service and delicious food. We'll be back!
A consistently very nice choice for pre-Carnegie Hall events. Quiet, very pleasant, good food, comfortable surroundings. Nice place to spend an evening...
I have been going there for many years and the food has always been so good! If you're looking for a great Italian restaurant that doesn't have small portions and big prices, this is the place. The portions are big and more than worth the price. From appetizer to dessert, I have never had a bad meal and have always recommended Nino's to people. It's a great place for a special occasion or just to have a great dinner.
Nino's used to be a go to place for an annual dinner with a special group of friends. However, this year the place really seems to be losing its luster. Service was just ok, the food wasn't nearly as good or as plentiful as in the past, and the only bright spot was seeing Irving, the 100 year and 7 month old piano player. This may be our last dinner there.
We needed a place to have dinner before the theatre. By checking the website we saw that they had a wide-ranging affordable prix-fixe . We were greeted warmly at the door and the food was delicious. Service was efficient. Noise level was low and the tables were spread out so that you couldn't hear others conversations. Nino's is an old-fashioned (in a good way) Manhattan restaurant. It is a not a trendy hip restaurant where its just all show and no substance. You walk out saying " Gee I had a good time"
My guest and I really enjoyed dinner at Nino's Tuscany. When we entered the restaurant we immediately remembered that we had dined there before and were thrilled to be back. The pianist wasn't playing that night but that was okay. We were greeted by Sylvia who was very pleasant and very happy to see us. She made us feel very welcomed at Nino's. Our table was perfectly placed in the restaurant and we could see around in the entire restaurant. We both ordered from the restaurant special prix fixe menu and when I tell you the choices were great, I couldn't decide what to order. I decided to have the antipasto for my appetizer and every bite was perfect. I had the pasta Bolognese for my entrée and thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Of course for dessert what else, but tiramisu, oh my goodness, one of the best I've ever had. I highly recommend that everyone visit Nino's Tuscany during restaurant week or any other time. Sylvia and her staff will treat you like kings and queens and you will feel like you've been transferred to a fine dining restaurant in Italy. It was amazing and I am definitely going there again with many friends so they can have the wonderful dining experience that I had. I thank Nino's Tuscany for a great dining experience and I thank Open Table for allowing me to make reservations that always turn out perfectly.
I have read some quite negative reviews for Nino's Tuscany but have to disagree, ultimately anyone can have a bad dining experience but we have eaten here maybe 4 times and have always received excellent service and great food. Their menu choices during this past restaurant week have been the most extensive of any other restaurant, you really were spoilt for choice.
My husband started with the cold meats and cheese, a very good portion as an appetiser and I had the meatballs, served with a delicate lemon sauce flavoured with garlic - the sauce is a winner for sure, I made sure to mop it up with some bread. My main dish was baked salmon, perfectly cooked which came with a lemon and caper sauce - again I was delighted to have some bread to mop up the sauce. My husband opted for the chicken dish, served with Italian sausage and there was nothing left on his plate, very tasty indeed. My husband was really happy with the tiramisu he opted for dessert, it was not soggy as you can sometimes find and disappeared in a flash. I had the chocolate gelato, two scoops of delicious, creamy chocolate gelato, a really good finish to a delicious meal. We will definitely be returning for more delicious food.
I enjoyed the food, and the staff was attentive, and courteous .
My wife and I totally enjoyed dinner at Nino's. The servers were absolutely attentive. The ambiance is very nice. There were a number of items that we ordered which were prepared table side, a lost art in Manhattan. We felt very special.
We dine at Nino's most times we come to New York, and we've never been disappointed. It's convenient to midtown hotels, has served us consistently good food, and the service has always been friendly. My wife and I find it intimate enough for a dinner for two, but we've had equally good luck hosting larger groups there. Definitely recommended.
Came here celebrating a birthday close to my office location . Restaurant was fair at best. Champagne was flat , food was cold and sub par. Not what I expected based on the location
muy buen atencion, aunque al llegar nos sacaron por que llegamos 15 min antes de la reservacion, y tuvimos que esperar fuera de el restaurante mientras se llegaba la hora. el lugar muy bien los meseros muy bien la recepcionista muy bien, en platillos pues algunos muy buenos y otros no tanto pero en general el lugar esta agradable.
We went to Nino's for New Year's Eve. I read about the restaurant on open table and the restaurant's web site. It seemed like a good fit for our family of four. When making our dinner reservation that afternoon, I noticed that some restaurants indicated they would have special/limited menus for New Year's Eve. Nino's web site did not. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated by a hostess, who was not very welcoming. We were handed our menus and that is when we noticed the limited availability. The server heard us discussing that the full menu wasn't available and told us that it was a limited menu due to New Year's Eve and the kitchen being short-staffed. We ordered two appetizers, four entrees, and three alcoholic drinks. We were stunned when our bill arrived and it was $500.00. We asked our server about it and he explained that the menu had special pricing that night ($99.00 a person, flat fee, plus drinks). We paid the bill feeling we had no choice and left. As we stood outside, we saw a menu posted on a window with special pricing description. It looks like the pricing may have included a selection from each course (app, entree and dessert), and music/entertainment for the evening. Had we known this, we may have stayed there to ring in the new year. As it was, we left feeling very stunned and paying entirely too much for our dinner. Neither the hostess nor the server mentioned this pricing to us. We had to find out on the bill. I think this is poor on the restaurant - especially because two people in our party are 12 and under. It was not a good value at all.
Quiet spot for excellent Italian food. Excellent for a family dinner or a quiet conversation
We went on Dec 23th with our kids. The pasta and wine list was excellent! Christian was our server and he was espetacular! Worth going and overpriced.
