About Nino's - Atlanta

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 twenty years, Antonio has taken pride in serving authentic Italian Cuisine made with fresh, imported ingredients and cooked to order for each guest. His reputation for serving exceptional Italian cuisine has attracted devoted locals who return time and again, along with a long list of celebrities (see below) 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 invites you to relax and savor some of the great culinary treasures of Italy in a memorable dining experience.

What a gem! Some places prepare great food. Some have a nice wine list or make a first rate cocktail. Others have terrific service or a nice ambiance. Nino's does it all.

I had a great time at Ninos. The food and ambiance was wonderful. I would say the service was not that good as I felt rushed. They brought out our appetizers and main entrees together which didnt make sense.

Nino's is easy to overlook given location and longevity, but it never disappoints. The food is a close to West Village as it gets in Atlanta, but be ready for a noisy environment on a Friday or Saturday night. All veal dishes are outstanding and the wine list is reasonably priced, though a little limited if your looking for California wines.

My wifes Birthday dinner was a bad experience in this Restaurant. The place was packed no room to walk. I think its a fire hazard. Also the waiters keeped hitting my chair to get by to get into the kitchen. Im Italian so I know good Italian food. It was ok but I personally could have made our dished ten times better. The cost was high for what we got. The neighborhood was really bad, scary to park ing lots.

The location is a little heck-it but worth the travel. Small intimate restaurant, with a nice, warm outside area. The service was excellent, the food was too. I will be going back soon to try a few more dishes on the menu. The wine recommended was also a hit.

The food was phenomal. The service left much to be desired. Our waiter seemed as though he wasn't interested in our table. We had been there 15 minutes before our drinks were ordered and after that he seemed short with us. It almost felt like he was annoyed. It really turned us off from what would have otherwise been a spectacular annivesary dinner.

A week earlier on week night Nino’s was perfect spot. Dined with five friends for good food and conversation. This visit with four of us on a Saturday night the food was delicious but the noise level made conversation impossible. It was crowded so service suffered. A big disappointment. Lesson learned. Never again on a busy Saturday night.

We love Nino's. Started with terrific calamari, hot out of the fryer, super crispy and fresh with a yummy slightly spicy marinara. Ice cold, crispy caesar salad, gnocchi with bolognese. That little bruschetta they set on the table is so delicious. We had the affogato for dessert which was the perfect ending to a great meal. I had hoped to take home half of the gnocchi but it was so good I ate it all. Excellent food, great, old world atmosphere, love it there. My son just wanted pasta with meat sauce, and they made it for him. Very accommodating.

We really miss Alfredo’s so we thought we would try Ninos. We had been once before, years ago but loved Alfredo’s so much better. The interior is cozy and warm with booths on the perimeter of the room and tables in the center. We requested a booth since it was a date night but we were told there wasn’t one available ( there were at least three available) We were seated at a two top in the middle of the room shoulder distance from the four top next to us. The waiter came to ask for our drink order then bread and bruschetta arrived at the table. The bruschetta was good but we really missed the garlic rolls we remembered from before. The waiter took our order ( he did not offer any specials, I overheard another waiter later in the evening offer them to another table) The salads were just okay , raspberry vinaigrette was a little too strong and sweet. The lasagna was good but not memorable. We did not order dessert or coffee. There are so many other better restaurants for Italian food in Atlanta. We won’t be back :(

restaurant ambiance felt like you were in Italy. Very impressed with the service considering it was New Years Eve and the restaurant is small but was very busy. Homemade pastas were outstanding and good wine selections at reasonable prices. I would highly recommend Ninos if you like authentic Italian food. Our waiter was actually from Italy. We will definitely go back.

We went to Nino’s on New Year’s Eve and the experience was underwhelming. Most restaurants are crowded on NYE, but they had obviously crammed extra tables into their small space and it was miserable. We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time and sat for 10 minutes without seeing a waiter. The food was good, especially the baked clam appetizer, but we won’t go back.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on December 7, 2017

My friend and I went here for a date night. We both agreed that the food was generally uninspired, save the pasta vodka side we ordered. The bruschetta presented at the beginning, while free, seemed like an after thought. 4 tiny pieces of bread, with only a small portion of rather bland bruschetta. The 2 dishes ordered were nothing special and lacked depth of taste. We both agreed we would have had a better meal if we went to Macaroni Grill. We both felt ill later, and can only think it was due to the meal. The pasta orecchiette ordered by my friend was sent back. As an Italian American, she couldn’t even eat it. We won’t be dining here ever again.

The most impressive thing about Nino's is the consistency. We've been coming here for over 15 years and it is always good. (As it has been around over 50 years should prove). It still has the best marinara sauce I've ever tasted. Best calamari. Cozy atmosphere. It is just a winner.
