About the restaurant
According to Zagat, This "excellent" local spot where Va-Highlanders meet is known for its "great patio" and "good, reasonably priced sushi and Thai food"; it's a mystery why it's "rarely crowded", but "those who love it" and want to keep it all to themselves "hope it stays that way."

Our server was amazing, attentive and professional. The food menu is limited on the rooftop so I hated that part. Also, I’ve never been ID’ed at check in of the reservation. I thought that was so weird.

About the restaurant
Nino's is the oldest, family-owned Italian Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. We provide a true classic and authentic Italian dining experience, thoughtfully prepared and attentively served. Nino's Cucina Italiana has a warm, welcoming setting that's perfect for family meals & gatherings. Parking is by valet only. No cash is accepted for bills. Nino's, opened in 1968, has been owned and operated by Antonio Noviello since 1982. Originally from the Amalfi Coast of southern Italy, Antonio worked in Monte Carlo, then Bermuda where he met his wife Helen, an Atlanta resident. After moving to Atlanta in 1981, Antonio's life-long dream of owning his own restaurant became a reality when he purchased Nino's. For more than forty-one years, Antonio has taken pride in serving authentic Italian Cuisine made with fresh, imported ingredients and cooked to order for each guest. In 2006 Antonio's middle daughter Alessandra became the manager and has since taken over with her husband Micah. Alessandra and Micah take pride in keeping the long-standing traditions and reputation of serving exceptional Italian cuisine alive. Nino's has attracted devoted locals who return time and again, along with a long list of who had heard of Nino's reputation and stopped in to sample the fare. Many of the dishes on Nino's menu are original recipes brought from Italy by Antonio and his brother Giuseppe. Antonio's favorite dishes are those named after his daughters, Gabriella, Alessandra, and Michela; his wife Elena (Helen); his brother Giuseppe; his brother-in-law Paola, and himself and the grandchildren. The pasta dish which bears the name of Nino's is a recipe from Mama Noviello. Antonio, Alessandra and Micah invite you to relax and savor some of the great culinary treasures of Italy in a memorable dining experience, at Atlanta's Oldest Italian Ristorante!

Started off kinda slow with the Service. Seemed like only one person was taking orders. Once we got our drinks, things seemed to pick up. We had fried gyoza and Umami wings for appetizers. We loved the wings. Great tasting sauce. My daughter had the beginning salmon box, and my son and I had the American Steak skewers. Very tender and tasty meat. We both loved the marinate sauce used. On Tuesday they have buy two and get two free. My son ordered four, but they forgot to bring the second order. it happens!! Great environment!!! I liked the wooden origami hanging in the windows. There's valet parking on the side of the building. Busy, but great neighborhood. Overall, it was a good experience.

Food and service were very good! Just notice the place was a little bit untidy and the floor was dirty. It was a quiet night, value for the food and drinks is good and all the staff was super friendly !
