  • UES Italian staple that consistently serves exceptional pastas, meats and fish
  • Came here last Thursday with my wife and her best friend from college, and all had an extremely enjoyable evening. Favorites among the table were the meatballs, the spaghetti carbonara, and the lamb
  • Went here for Restaurant Week 2011 and the service was great. The meatballs, rigattoni and chocolate mousse cake was amazing.
  • This place is absolutely amazing. You have to try the banana flambe. One of our new favorite places!!!
  • Outstanding food and presentation-impeccable service. Piano player adds to ambiance. Tableside preparation of some foods a the signature dessert dishes adds to the experience. Must have: flambe.
  • Never expected this Italian joint (hidden behind the bus stop) to be so great and authentic... the staff was friendly and had super fresh-tasting ingredients and hmm, just overall warm feelings!!!
  • Great Caesar salad.
  • Check out Nino's Bellisima as seen on Food Paradise
  • Still here but amazing.
  • Um bodego de bebidas italiano de muito bom gosto.
  • Great classic Italian that has a certain sophistication, though leaves out all pretension.
  • Such an amazing meal. I can certainly understand why the Lobster Fra Diavolo is their signature dish!
  • Saw this place on the news a couple of weeks ago and decided to try it out, because it's a place a lot of celebrities go to get away from the spotlight. I now know why it's a favorite.
  • Ok food, ok wine, worst tiramisu I've ever had. Not sure if this is because I'm here during restaurant week...but I won't be coming back.
  • Food was tasty but service was very slow. I like live music but this reminded me too much of Bar Mitzvah music, and brought me back to when I was 13 in a bad way.
  • Terrible service, and bland traditional Italian
  • Atrocious. If you are going to offer a groupon/travel zoo deal, you should be able to handle the volume. Waited 55 minutes for appetizers, were about to walk out when entrees were served.
  • Try the Nino's Signature - Tender filet mignon & buttery Maine lobster tail. Best dish I've ever had.
  • Try the insalata di mare - Fresh seafood tossed in a blissful vinaigrette. Heaven.
  • Delicious! Lots of homemade pasta options and classic entrees. Their house special is the lobster fra diavolo. The roasted chicken was solid, as were the gnocchi and tiramisu
