    My two first-time guests were enchanted with Nino's and with Nino. They loved the Osso Bucco and the Veal Chop. Both were also impressed with both the quality and Quantity of the 5 items Charcuterie board. The Pecorino Romano cheese is especially good.

    We had the specials, a veal chop and the pork milanese. My chop was delicious. I almost ordered it medium rare, but on my waiter's advice I got is medium. Perfect and juicy.

    Took a good, longtime friend for his 90th birthday. The restaurant was great in dealing with needs. That leads me to say that service was perfect-- as it always is. The food has always been great an the meal last Sunday was no exception. Everything was perfectly prepared and presented. I am only sorry that I can't get there more often. Thanks to everyone for your part in another great meal and evening there!!

    What a lovely neighborhood gem! Don’t miss the owner’s wife’s homemade lasagne. The wine list has many unusual Italian options, not typically found in most restaurants. A must when it is on the menu. Say Hello to Nino, the owner, who is always there to greet you when you arrive. Mange!
