What a wonderful treat to discover Nino’s. Thanks Open Table and Restuarant week for this great discovery. My husband and I went for lunch and had a wonderful time. He ordered the Parmesan crusted chicken which came with green beans and carrots and a lovely delicious lemon sauce. He doesn’t particularly like string beans or carrots but he told me that the lemon sauce just made it so delicious and he ate every drop of his plate. I had the spinach raviolis in pesto sauce which was also delicious. Check out the beautiful detail on my dish… A simple tomato peeling turned into a beautiful rose. Is that not nice? We had agreed to share our dishes but when I saw my husband’s expression after his first bite of the chicken I realized I wasn’t going to be able to share it with him ha ha. He did offer me a couple bites and I must agree the chicken was very good. They started us off with a free appetizer of some flavorful hummus and some very nice bread. Our waiter was very nice as was the bus boy and all the service people working there were just lovely. We had a great time and we will be returning.
Very nice and quiet old school restaurant. I recommend it.
Food and service was impeccable. We really enjoyed our meal and will definitely return.
The food was delicious, service was excellent and the pricing in a luncheon special was amazing

Our favorite Italian restaurant on the Upper East Side. Excellent Food and service. Excellent cocktails. Beautiful restaurant. Great staff. I have been going here for decades and have never been disappointed.
Highly recommend. Excellent service and food.
My husband and I visit Nino's regularly for our little "dates" for many years. The food is always excellent, tasty, and well prepared. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. Fresh fruits and vegetables on display, white tablecloths , immaculate. Attentive and "there when you need it " service. You have feel of luxury in this neighborhood gem. Mr. Nino is present everytime, circling among the guests, making sure everyone is happy. Highly recommend.
Wonderful service. Beautiful restaurant. Would go back tomorrow if I didn't have work. Please try this wonderful Italian restaurant you won't be sorry.
Excellent! As always. Never disappoints glad to see Nino and the staff after the paused inside dining.
Nino's still got it! After all these years and the hardship with COVID, Nino's is still open and still putting out some of the best Italian dishes on the Upper East Side. Ive been to this neighborhood gem for years!!!! Since the late 90's!! And its still got its magical touch and amazing food accompanied by spectacular service. Definitely cannot wait to go back!!
Calamari tasted frozen rather than fresh. Veal was pretty awful. My boyfriend and I both had one bite and expressed our dislike to the waiter however they barely acknowledge it and didn’t comp or even offer us anything else. The only thing decently good about this place is their pasta. I enjoyed the spinach and ricotta ravioli. There wine is good too lol. Good sized pour but won’t be going back.
Unique , authentic and delicious
You allowed me to make a reservation when the restaurant was actually closed. This was for a friends birthday and it was very disappointing.
Food was excellent! Nino was gracious as always.
Everything was delicious! Will be back again soon!
Lovely food. Gracious service. Outdoor dining is a difficult ambiance in NY.
Wonderful Italian food, prepared and cooked to perfection. Reminds one on food served in Rome or Milan. The fish and pasta dishes are wonderful - most never would try the meatballs - but they are sensational!
We are "regulars" at Nino's and have always enjoyed each visit. The service is always very attentive and Nino is a gracious host. We also love the live music ("Great American Songbook") on weekends!
great Italian on the upper east side. great food and even better service
We came to celebrate my son’s 5th birthday & everything was great. Nino & his staff go above & beyond to make sure you have a great meal & a great time. I highly recommend this restaurant.
This is one of my girlfriend and I’d favorite places to eat at in the Upper East Side. Great food, great ambiance, and amazing customer service!
Great service and food
Nice piano music
Everything was great! Super friendly staff and amazing food. Definitely coming back.
Chose Nino's from a search of 'Italian', primarily based on it being on the way to the Apollo for a Little Big Town show w/ my 2 daughters. We we're not disappointed in our random selection. And we ate like champs. The three of us shared the carpaccio/arugula "wraps" and custom-requested clams casino. Fantastic without being too filling! Careful with the clams: you can suck them right off the shell easily but wait until they cool down! For our main courses, we played "pass the plate" with the penne vodka, spaghetti carbonara and the sea bass in lemon caper sauce, all busting with flavor. The pasta sauces may have been a little heavy, especially as we neared the bottom but nonetheless delicious. The cannolis finished our visit, again, full of flavor and not overwhelming that we couldn't clean the plate. The service was solid if unspectacular which suited us just fine. We neither neglected nor constantly interrupted. Being on the early side of the NYC Saturday dinner rush, the place was still filling up as we ate so the noise and general bustle were not a detriment, while the décor was scene recognizable as many family-run establishments.....where the focus is on making you feel welcome and feeding you well. There may be better (and more expensive) places to go, but this one more than hit the spot. Three thumbs up from this crew.
Manager extremely rude and condescending. Ruined the dining experience and will not return! 👎
Amazing. Just do it.
Lovely table side service of Caesar salad and Zabaglione were the highlights!
