This restaurant offers great food and hospitality. Owner Nino greets you comes to the table and chats with you, the waiter is completely on top if things. The atmosphere is low key, noise levels low, there is no background music, it is a great place for conversation.

Once again, Nino's delivered! We went for a birthday dinner and I had the special halibut and my husband had the veal chop. Both were outstanding, artistic and prepared to perfection. Nino and his family run this restaurant and they make it feel like you're coming home for dinner - an elevated, sophisticated dinner in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Ninos was hitting all marks last night— the atmosphere was animated, but conversation was easy; service was attentive, but well-paced; and the food was fabulous.

It was good Italian (not the best I have had or the worse). The owner is the hostess which is a cool touch. It is light pasta so you don't feel weighed down after eating. Beer selection is limited and kind of on the expensive end.

We dined at Nino’s for my father’s birthday dinner. As with my earlier experiences, the food and service were excellent. We were seated promptly upon arrival and our server was attentive and gracious the entire evening. Nino came by towards the end of dinner to chat. When I reserved, I noted that we were coming for birthday. The server took the initiative and brought out cannolis (quite tasty with pistachio and a side of raspberry drizzle) and a candle without my asking.

Osteria da Nino has turned into one of our go-to's for a great meal. Most recently we went for a birthday celebration and everyone enjoyed their meal (to include house made desserts that were a great bday treat!). Be sure you meet the owner, Nino. He'll treat you like family.

From the moment Nino greeted us at the door until we left, full and happy, Osterio da Nino was an absolute delight! We celebrated our mother's 80th birthday with an intimate family dinner there. The staff was attentive, stopping by to wish her well throughout the meal and finishing with a beautifully decorated dessert plate, lit candle and song. The food was outstanding, the menu expansive with options to please everyone, and the wine list was excellent without being overwhelming. Nino even spent time sharing stories of his own mother's recent birthday celebration. We'll definitely go back.
