Service was impeccable, wine list extensive and Nino and Mrs. were as personable as ever. Great covid protections as well!
Absolutely incredible food and service!! One of our all-time favorite places in the area.
It’s delicious! Just about everything is homemade at the restaurant- soups, focaccia bread, pasta, and desserts. Great beer and wine selection. The owner greets everyone with a warm welcome and the staff is very attentive and courteous.
I neighborhood Italian restaurant with excellent food, friendly attentive management, and quiet ambiance. The place to go when you want an excellent Italian meal with a caring staff.
The hospitality was amazing. Nino recommended an incredible wine. Every course if the three course meal was delectable.
Always good, even on Valentine's Day when it is usually difficult to find a good meal in a restaurant.
My husband and I had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner here. Wonderful Italian wines to select from, top notch service and excellent food. Arugula salad is one of my favorites, veal dishes were very satisfying and served nice and hot and all the sides were cooked perfectly. Spacing out, partitions, and other covid protocols made us feel safe. Highly recommend Osteria da Nino!
Everything was delicious!
The food was amazing and our waiter (I believe his name was Holt?) was a gem that gave great wine recommendations and was very attentive. This was fine dining done right and I’m very glad that I took my lady here for Valentine’s Day.
The appetizer, drinks and dessert was great. The main dish was very disappointing for my wife and I. My seafood pasta was extremely dry and flavorless and my wife’s lobster pasta lacked lobster.
We love this place because the food is consistently good.
The Owner who was the Host seemed particularly stressed and was rude to my waiter for talking to us too much. I think he should be more respectful of his wait staff 🤔
As promised Nino is great we had a great time and a great meal. Would definitely go back and we will. Go support local businesses.
Osteria da Nino is always the best. Great food and always feel welcome by Nino himself!
Wonderful- as always!! The owner makes you feel welcomed and sincerely wants to enjoy your meal. My husband declared the spaghetti as ‘the bomb’. I had the eggplant parmesan and it’s delicious. Ample portions, yummy bread, and a great wine selection.
Great food, experience. Overall a must go to spot.
A go to for Italian in Shirlington. The food is always excellent; the specials are a frequent go-to. Nino knows his wine list and has some gems that are reasonably priced. It is a no miss pick.
Date night in a well know authentic Italian restaurant! Thank you to everyone at Osteria da Nino, from the waiter to the owner for making a night out for two parents who bust their butt off and rarely go out simply short of perfect!
It is a very vibrant restaurant. Our waiter was excellent and looked after us extremely well. His recommendations exceeded our expectations. The dish I ordered was not to my taste. They offered me something immediately as a replacement. They were devoted to ensuring we had the best possible experience. I look forward to coming o going back.
We love Nino's food, and the service was outstanding!!
Everything was very well presented and tasty. The pistachio creme brûlée is a must.
It was a nice place. Our server was a lady, and she was very sweet and patient. They bring out bread and pesto, it was nice and fluffy in the inside and not too hard/crunchy on the outside. The pesto was amazing. The calamari was good, could have been fried a little longer but still good. It came with two delicious sauces. As a main, I got the short rib ravioli. I would give it a 6/10. A little too al dente for me but the flavor was there. The chicken Marsala was delicious! It was packed with flavor and it was amazing. Definitely recommend that. We also got a cheese pizza. Yum! The star of the night was their pistachio creme brûlée!!! Wow is all I have to say.
Always the best food, the best ambiance, and Nino is a splendid host! You are treated like family!
The bronzini was thin and old. It was topped with some cilantro (?) and maybe a trace of spinach or swiss chard. I should have brought a magnifying glass so as to identify it. The bread was good, as was the wine, but the fish fell far short of expectations. Nino is a gracious host and the restaurant is spacious and clean, but unfortunately my dinner was a real disappointment.
Not many diners do to the pandemic so it was quiet. Appetizers we great grilled octopus with white beans, fried calamari, and mussels in wine broth. Main meal was Osseo Bucco with risotto, grilled sea bass with sautéed spinach, and veal scallopini with pasta. All Italian wines on the wine list. I wish they included some Napa varietals.
The food was phenomenal and the family was so friendly!! We chatted for an extra 20-30 mins and they made us feel like family (even sharing a bit of wine!). A must-come-back.
Excellent service and very delicious food. We ordered the mussel appetizer (YUM), Salmon with potatoes and brussel sprouts, Caesar salad with Salmon, Marsala chicken, and a pasta bouillabaisse dish. Everyone enjoyed their meals! We will eat here again when we are in town.
Amazing food and Nino is an excellent host! Can't wait to go back!
Excellent food, great drinks, excellent service and owner Nino is very personable. During COVID-19 I have not felt too keen about dining in, but this establishment has gone out of its way to ensure patron comfort and follow COVID protocols, including well spaced tables, enforcement of mask policy, well spaced partitions to ensure separation, that is complemented by the restaurant's high ceilings which provides me with a comfort level with respect to aerosol spread. Great happy hour drinks and appetizers also, delicious focaccia bread served with meal, great desserts. Pasta is homemade and dishes are tasty and very fresh. A bit off the path in Shirlington across from the bus terminal, easy to miss if you are not looking for it.
The food is always great, the short rib special was especially good this night. Nino and his staff are always so nice and knowledgeable, ready to answer any questions you may have and make recommendations. The Perricone that Nino recommended was very good!
WE loved our time there, the staff and the management are so nice! food was amazing our female latin server ( sorry i don't remember your name) knew everything my woman wanted amazing wing woman. picked out our wine, made food suggestion.
What a gem, so happy we found this place. We loved the food and the atmosphere and will be back for sure!!
We went out for a safe, anniversary dinner and we were blown away. They took all precautionary measures for COVID and made us feel very comfortable. Not only was the service fantastic but the food was fantastic. We will definitely be dining here regularly.
Good food, very extensive wine list and great service.
Food was great, menu selection great, and there was a good number of specials for being the middle of the week.
Great food - great staff - wonderful atmosphere. Nice neighborhood place to eat. Delicious.
The food was delicious and was expertly prepared. We had the pork chop special and the veal piccata - both were outstanding! Holt, our server, was great - he was knowledgeable, attentive, and very courteous. We will be back soon.
It was also good to see Nino again. Please support this very fine local restaurant during these trying times for all restaurants.
Nino's is a true gem with great food, knowledgeable servers and safely distanced tables. His prices reflect the quality of the ingredients in the food, from homemade pasta to cheeses and wines shipped from Italy.
This was a farewell dinner for a friend and Nino and the staff made it perfect! The food was, as always, perfect as was the wine. Every time we eat here, we leave happy and feeling almost like we’re back in Italy.
Never disappoints! Best Italian food that I’ve had in the DMV area
The food was excellent, the service was fantastic the owners are doing it right!! We will be back.
