Great selection of live music performing here during the cooler months and fantastic service. Having been through a few cities in Italy myself, the selection of Italian dishes is top notch. Would almost make me think the owners frequent there... well that's because they do. Grazie!

The owners go to Italy every summer to keep up with authentic Italian cuisine. Great for couples family,friends or business.

I ran across a picture of the pizza at Ninos and had to make a visit. The atmosphere is really cool there with Chianti wine bottles hanging EVERYWHERE. The pizza was really good too. I would say that this place is a hidden gem for sure. We have driven past it so many times and had no clue at what... More

Went to dinner on a quiet Sunday evening. Wendy was a great waitress and the food was wonderful. The Veal Romano was great! We'll be back!

Went to this annual Christmas time dinner..Was absolutely fabulous... Each flavorful dish was presented with an Italian wine. I felt like I was in a family home in Italy. Will definitely go back

Nino's is family owned and authentic. We have tried a variety of menu options since we discovered Nino's in 1993, and we have always had a wonderful culinary experience. Please note that the restaurant closes every summer as they return "home" to Italy.

I am a mature single woman, so I like finding a restaurant where I feel welcomed when I dine alone, and I can relax and enjoy my meal. I can honestly state I have never had a bad meal in nearly six years of dining here. The staff remembers your name, and the owner comes through the restaurant and visits... More

Beautifully decorated just like the Old country.....Awesome food, we are never disappointed. Wait staff is efficient and courteous and the owner is usually always there making sure her customers are happy. Pleasant atmosphere and great place to try authentic Italian.

Returned to Nino's tonight for the first time since my first visit in March. This time, my mother from California came with - my Sicilian-by-marriage mother from California. Unfortunately, we had the same server. He simply is not cut out to be a server. He is VERY polite and respectful, but he is not knowledgeable of the menu and forgetful.... More

We used to go here year's ago; and have not been back until recently. Everything was how I remembered (and liked), from previous visits. A great menu, Good service, and the atmosphere is very quaint. We live about 20 miles away now; but we will be back to enjoy this unique restaurant.
