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.

Old school Italian with excellent service. Veal, lobster, and pasta were delicious. Complimentary bread and bruschetta. Half plates of pasta available for kids or light eaters.

Went for my #1 year anniversary, literally by far the most romantic restaurant I’ve ever been to. Food was amazing, and our server Mark was outstanding.

The atmosphere was nice & the wait staff was very pleasant, however I was expecting better pasta for an authentic Italian place. The Lasagna lacked a lot of flavor.

Although I have lived in Atlanta for 47 years, I just learned about Nino's last week.

It is an excellent restaurant with superb service and delicious well-prepared food at a fair price!!!

Was wonderful! Will return. Took awhile for my eyes to adjust to the dimness. Thought I should have brought a flashlight to read menu but after a short while all was well.

Nino’s has completely won us over. We used to patron an Italian restaurant closer to our house but the staff and food have convinced us that there’s no place we eat Italian (besides our own kitchen) than Nino’s. They treat us like we are family. We have 3 kids and it’s nice to have a place that thinks they are important too.

In Atlanta overnight catching an early flight. Had eaten at Nino's in the late 80's decided to try it again 30 yrs later. Food was as remembered, authentic and freshly prepared. All enjoyed their dishes from the savory cream sauces topping a bed of pasta with seafood delicacies of scallops, shrimp, clams and lobster to the classic meat lasagna Sad side neighbor hood is not quite what it used to be so curb appeal

Excellent authentic Italian. More fine dining in their approach to the menu compared Italian chain restaurants. Generous portions reasonable price. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ve got to go just to see the dessert cart!

Our favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta, maybe America. The food is great -- very authentic, and each dish individually (and obviously carefully) prepared. But what keeps us coming back is that a visit to Nino's is like stepping back in time. The room is dark and quiet, nothing is trendy, none of the servers have tattoos or piercings, and all look and act like they care about their jobs. Which is to say, this place is nothing like 90 percent of Atlanta restaurants today. Love it.
