Nino’s Cucina Italiana is a tribute to our father, Nino. He still travels constantly to all the locations to make sure everything is done “Nino’s Way,” with quality food, personality, and love.

Over 75 years of an Italian family tradition in baking and cooking from three generations has culminated in Nino’s Cucina Italiana. Our Italian dishes are centuries old recipes handed down from our family throughout the years. We prepare all our food daily—making fresh dough, sauces, mozzarella cheese, pasta and our delicious meatballs in-house.

    We ate early (5:15 pm reservation) and all went great. By the time we left it was getting busier and had more noise, but still pleasant. The food was great - highly recommend the pork chop; so tender and well seasoned!

    I did appreciate that we were seated immediately upon our arrival. Our server responded to our table immediately. She checked on our needs frequently. She was sweet, and professional. The meal was delicious, and served “hot”! The atmosphere was enjoyable. I will look forward to returning soon.

    Nino’s was a very pleasant surprise! My husband and I were looking for a nice place to have dinner the night before a scheduled medical procedure. Nino’s far exceeded our expectations. Great service and our meals were excellent. I especially recommend the wild mushroom ravioli!

    Food was outstanding and service was excellent. My complaints are the water glasses need to be rinsed better. The drinks (non-alcoholic) always taste like bleach. I started bringing my own. And their "Italian" dressing is nothing but oil and vinegar with some herbs floating on top. It's not good. I started bringing my own dressing as well. I'll definitely be back.

    A very large somewhat chaotic environment with large outdoor space in the front; a middle bar area that feels more like a nice, small hotel bar and two other large spaces that dont seem to come together that well in decor and ambiance. Lost of large parties. The servers appear to be mostly college students and are very earnest but could use some more training menu knowledge building. The handmade pasta is excellent and made into some complex dishes worthy of anywhere. Caesar salad romaine etc seemed old. The meat/cheese plate is enormous but lacks some sense of style; crostini etc. Bread was old and/or tasteless and not worth chewing on. All in all- I would go back- try and get into a quieter space- and stick with that great pasta. Excellent wine by the bottle list- nothing special by the glass.

    Our soft drinks (Pepsi and Dr. Pepper) both tasted like chlorine or soap or some cleaning agent. Had to just drink water. The calamari was a little too heavily breaded and a bit overcooked. The rack of lamb was awesome as was the chicken Alfredo. Our server was exceptional and showed great talent and artistry with our anniversary dessert.

    We took our daughter here for a special dinner at parents weekend at ECU the food was great and the service wonderful. We all had pasta, Spaghetti with meatballs, mushroom ravioli , and rigatoni with vodka sauce. We also had specialty cocktails , the bar area looked very nice too , the only area of improvement would be the calamari was a little over fried but otherwise 5 stars all around - did I say the service was great

    Our app came out the cheese and sliced meat- gorgeous board and was totally enjoying it - about 5 mins later our entrees came out! My white truffle paprdelle was horrendous. Highly recommend the chicken parm My other daughter hated her meal too thought it was gonna be made in the Parmesan cheese well

    Food and service were excellent. Saltimbocca with vegetables was sublime. Several large groups seated near us, plus we were next to the bar…lots of loud, raucous conversations which made it impossible to converse. So we spent my birthday dinner smiling and nodding at each other.

    Best Italian food anywhere in NC and the best restaurant in Greenville. Nino's has both a "neighborhood gathering place" feel and a semi-upscale fine dining atmosphere. Great place for drinks after work, a place to entertain and impress out-of-town guests or dinner with family and friends. It's impossible to leave hungry, and I've never had anything there that I didn't love.

    The food is very good and it’s a good place to go. The only problem I have is when you buy an alcoholic beverage the amount is so little that you are paying a high price for a taste. When I say a taste it’s a taste. To get a full glass you have to buy about 3 drinks and that’s ridiculous. I love coming to this spot but if I can’t have more instead of less when I purchase an alcoholic beverage I may need to reconsider my options and go somewhere else. I like to get my moneys worth and not rob with measuring out drinks. If it got to be measured then you all don’t need to serve it. The big ice cube in the glass is more than your drink you get . I like to taste my alcohol and the amount is so small I can’t even tell it’s there. I bought an Ameretto Sour and when I removed the block of ice if I had an inch of drink in the glass you could have fooled me. All the glass and a drop of drink. But when I seen somebody else glass same size as mine at the bar it was full to the top. I guess it’s different strokes for different folks. So sad I am truly disappointed.

    I waited 48 minutes wondering where my food was. In the meantime, I was so irritated I lost my appetite. I cancelled my order. Our waitress was missing in action, walking by us constantly going to other tables but ignoring us. Won't be going back. This isn't the first time something like this has happened there.

    Ninos offers white tablecloth, service paired with excellent food. The service was impeccable. My spaghetti Limone had perfectly cooked seafood, as well as a delicious sauce. My husband‘s dinner was equally delicious. This would be a special place for an anniversary or birthday.
