About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Nino's Tuscany Steakhouse provides a cozy, welcoming haven and unfussy, well-executed cooking from its namesake central Italian region. Pastel-hued murals of the idyllic Tuscan countryside, brickwork, and softly-lit elongated sconces set a pleasant mood that's enlivened in the evenings by the sprightly piano playing of irrepressible nonagenarian, Irving Fields.

Easy to find with an exceptional wait staff. Our entire party enjoyed their meal, and all agreed that it will be added to our "favorites" list!

Being here at Ninos tuscan steakhouse was an amazing experience. The manager greeted us at the door and seated us. The food here is amazing. I got the rib eye medium and my gf got the veal which wasn't as good as my steak but still good. The service was excellent but the food did take a while to come they had a huge party which would explain it and the manager even came over to apologize but overall amazing experience.

"Nino's Tuscany Steak House" is a magnificent restaurant. Honestly I am a bit hesitan to write to much about it out of fear that more people will discover this wonderful place. It is a truly an oudstanding Italian Steak House we'll worth the price. All the best to management, chef, waiters and kitchen staff.

The food tasted great, however entree portion sizes were closer to what I would think of as an appetizer. Wasn't necessarily just that it came off as a little pricey for the quantity, but more so that the amount of food was insufficient to qualify as an entree.

Server was oddly quiet. Never suggested any drinks or food items. This seemed strange as over the course of our meal, other servers could be heard making suggestions in a friendly manner. When a server (not our primary one) asked if we wanted anything else, I asked for the dessert menu. He brought main server back and he asked "You had a question about the desserts?" Eventually I got him to tell us the names of the desserts verbally (though he provided no descriptions or adjectives). Overall it just seemed strange (and frankly it was off putting).

My boyfriend and I had Christmas dinner at Nino's. The owner checked us in and I told him we booked it through open table. I later found out that he did not check us in and Open Table sent me an email stating that I was a no show. Anyway, back to the dinner, the waiter took our order, we asked for one appetizer, but instead got two and they were not the appetizers we wanted. When we told the waiter, he became very defensive.

The atmosphere at Nino's was very intense. The owner micromanaged the staff and they looked visibly scared. I did not feel comfortable and the waiter was not friendly once we told him about the mistake. The food is average. I would not recommend this restaurant based on my dinning experience.

having travelled in Tuscany we get excited when we see a menu with Tuscan specialties, so it was a no-brainer when we saw Ribolito on the menu. We booked a pre-Carnegie Hall dinner. Upon entering we realized we had fell for this once before, and did not like the food then either. The Ribolito which is supposed to be a hearty vegetable soup (almost a stew) thickened by bread was a watery, almost tasteless broth with vegetables and no bread. My linguine con vongole was a salt lick that could have brought the deer down from the woods. My husband's meat sauce was tasty so if you are forced to eat here stick to that. The best thing was a plate of biscotti which I would order to go and serve to company. Unfortunately, the tea that was ordered to go with it was not delivered till way after we had asked for our check and were getting ready to leave. Trying to get the check was an ordeal and we just made the curtain. Hopefully, next time I will remember.

I took a friend there for dinner for her birthday and the food, service and atmosphere were incredible! It was nice not only being able to see the menu and what I was eating - lighting consisted of more than just a small votive candle on the table - but also not having to yell across the table in order to have a conversation - 2 things that are much too common in restaurants today. We had the lobster bisque soup which was very good, she had the osso bucco and I had the seafood pasta. Both dishes were amazing!!! We are definitely going to come back (even if it's not an occasion) and if people are looking for a good Italian restaurant with good portions and not expensive, we're sending them to Nino's.

I found this restaurant on line because it was located near my hotel. It got good ratings and looked like it had a nice variety of selections. The food was very good, but the wait staff was a bit inattentive. We asked one of the busboys for our entrees as we had been waiting for a good bit and didn't see our waiter. And when we were done I had to flag down our waiter to bring the check. The restaurant was not 100% capacity so I don't believe the waiter was overwhelmed, just not very interested in my party of 3 ladies.

My wife and I like to go to New York for vacation. One of the the things I like about going there is to try new experiences. Nino's was a shot in the dark on our part, and it was excellent. It is conveniently located on 58th St, so it is a short walk to theaters, Central Park and Rockefeller Center. The food was excellent, and the service just the right level of attentiveness. The restaurant is small, but in my opinion, made it better. It was fairly quiet,

We will defintly be going there again.

It was a nice dinner menu, the reception, atmosphere, and wine list were all above average from my point of view. However, as we were dining, and considering not all at the same pace, the waiters kept clearing and seemed eager to have us finish the course. At one point one waiter was so eager that he reached across and took a plate and inadvertently dropped a knife on my plate while I was cutting my viand. I felt 'hurried' and made the dining uncomfortable.

I visit New York City two three times a year. This was my second visit to Nino's. The food and service was outstanding. The wait staff was very attentive. The piano music was a treat. The general manager Benny stopped by our table two times to make sure everything was acceptable. At the end of our meal, Benny offered us complimentary after drinks which was a total surprise and much welcomed. I will return next time I'm in New York city.

We had originally planned to eat at Keen's Steakhouse after the theater, but it was impossible to get a reservation there early on a Sunday evening. Instead, based entirely on positive reviews, we tried Nino's Tuscan Steakhouse. It turned out to be a wonderful discovery. The place doesn't have the physical charm of Keen's (the historical sense of old New York), but the food was just as good. We tried the filet mignon and a fish special--and, honestly, the food couldn't have been better. It was not cheap, but it was worth it: superbly cooked. The staff was attentive and courteous. The terrible music playing when we entered was switched to classical without our asking, and the restaurant was quiet and intimate. We would definitely return. An excellent find--and perfect location (on 58th) for a dinner after the show at City Center. I recommend it without hesitation.

Reservation for 3 at 7:00, we showed up in time, we got seated at 7:30. (The group ahead of us had been waiting 30 min. and were threatening to walk out when the hostess finally seated them.) Appetizers were prompt, but the main course arrived at about 9:15 pm - which may explain why open tables don't materialize when needed. The decor and the staff created a nice, refined white-tablecloth vibe ... and then the keyboard player/DJ fired up his kit. No quiet conversation here; we ended up talking loudly, in order to be heard over bad karaoke-like renditions of stale pop songs, with a smattering of butchered nighclub standards thrown in for good measure. Talk about incongruity - it was like a Monty Python sketch. Food, btw, was excellent.

This was my first time at Nino's Tuscany and I brought a group of ten here on a Thursday night mostly due to its proximity to Carnegie Hall and based on other restaurant reviews. We were all completely thrilled with the restaurant, the service and the incredible food. Everyone loved their dishes, and each of us ordered different entrees so we had a good representation of the overall menu. Appetizers were exceptional, the antipasto was served with dramatic flair. Serving sizes were perfect and service was friendly and flawless. Sorry we had no time to try the desserts. Planning another visit in in a few weeks! Happy to have found this gem.

We took our parents here to celebrate their 60th anniversary after having had a wonderful experience three weeks prior. The food is excellent and the service is very attentive without being intrusive. They added a few special "treats" to our dinner and had the piano player congratulation my parents with a song. Benny and his staff were fabulous. We travel in from NJ frequently and Nino's is now on our list of regulars!
