I have been searching for the best Neapolitan style Italian for a long time and finally found it! Nino's is the spot! Not sure how I have missed this hidden gem but came across it through Open Table! You can tell from the minute you walk in that this is a hot spot that regulars have clung to for years.... More

Visited Feb 8. John was our server. Very attentive. Started with the Calamari Fritti while my dinner guests had salads. We had Veal Parmigiana, Gnocchi and Papperdelle. All were excellent! We used to go to Alfredos (now closed) and am glad this is close by. When in the mood for Italian make this your restaurant. Parking is a bit limited... More

Visited many times back in the 70's, haven't been back in years. Although the faces have changed, the great food has not. A great local place, casual, large menu, friendly service, good size portions, and a reasonable value. Not many places you can get a grilled veal chop anymore, but still on the menu here. Worth a try, no matter... More

I dined with my extended family, two tables. Unfortunately we were a placed right near the kitchen entrance. The food was great, service very attentive. The commotion coming from the kitchen was a little disturbing but other than that, it was very good. 3 people got the grouper special and thought it was outstanding.

If you are looking for real authentic Italian cuisine this is the place for it! The food is amazing and the variations are incredible. I recommend that you dress in casual clothes because it is a little upscale, but not needed. The food and service were great all around. I was impressed how efficiently all the space was used in...

While visiting Atlanta, we wanted to find a casual but very good Italian restaurant for dinner. We read about Nino's and it was close to where we were staying so decided to check it out. We were seated immediately and it was almost full on a Monday night which was a good sign. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable and recommended... More

We lost Alfredo's and for years have driven past Nino's on our way to the other place. This was our second visit and I have to say we have overlooked a great place.

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.
