    I very sad that Nino's will be shutting their doors on Friday, August 5, after 45 years serving the City of Houston. It has always been one of my favorite places to eat and I have many fond memories enjoying good food with good friends. Y'all will be missed.

    We were celebrating our 50th Wedding anniversary with another couple. Put that on my open table reservation and confirmed it with the hostess. No acknowledgement from waitstaff or manager. Nothing. Food was ok but not near as good as when Vincent was still alive. Not a good experience at all. Very disappointed

    Nino's has been a Houston landmark for many years. It has great Italian food with a warm ambiance. I strongly recommend their veal parmisiana, and chicken vincent. It is a relatively small restaurant with a cozy upscale feel.

    My Bible Study friends and I meet at Nino's once a month for dinner. It is our "go to" place. The food and service are always excellent, and it's the perfect place for quiet conversation early on a Monday or Tuesday night.

    Long time patron of this restaurant and could not have been more disappointed. Service was awful. Waiter was either new and inexperienced or simply incompetent. 20 minutes at table before we were even greeted or given menus and things went steadily downhill from there. Even had to request our bill three times when we were ready to leave! We spoke privately with manager upon leaving to express concern and this was met with indifference. We won’t return.

    I specifically made my reservation for 6:15 pm instead of 6:30 pm so I would not be seated in the bar but they seated us in the bar anyway. There were 2 large tables of very loud patrons with very small children roaming around their table. One patron kept sneezing and coughing and were 1 foot from me. My food was great and our waiter did his best. The kitchen ran out of some of the desserts. May not return for a while because of the poor ambiance.

    Service was very slow and inconsistent. No ice for drinks after asking for it and reminding them, no oil for bread, requested soup to be hot and was cold instead. Other food was good but was not hot either. Very loud!!!

    Bad, I have no idea how it got that rating on google. It is my first time here and for sure the last. Food was uneatable, we forced as much as we can as we were hungry. Their Pizza was a joke, the Chicken was so citric, add the same to other main dishes. The appetizers were a little bit better, load of row garlic on the crab to the point you don't taste crab anymore. The risotto balls were good. The waiter was for some reason angry ... Maybe he was forced to serve us, I don't know. He was really reluctant to give any guidance toward the menu and answer our questions with one to two words at max. Kids invited their mom to celebrate the Mother's day. No thanks to Nino's, they regretted it.
