Nino's is great. A traditional Italian place - not just the basic pasta and pizza options They also have a super specials board with a great range of meat and seafood. I love the veggie stuff too - recommend the Melanzane Parmigiana - yummy.
Really recommend - great for some traditional Italian food which is not just your standard Italian chain stuff.
Sadly, Nino's has closed, apparently for good
Don't let the cute exterior, convenient location and table clothes lure you in. On two of the different visits I burnt my mouth on the food in a manner that I've only experienced with badly microwaved food. The wine tasted like ribena with a dash of neat alcohol, all served with a surliness normally only produced by pre-exam teenagers.
I used to work there as the Kitchen porter, with the 1st and 2nd chef (Husband and Wife team), but anyway that was back in the 1990s, So even I would recommend it as the food and wine are of a very high quality and I would go there again
I love this place. Been here since 1980 with the original owner still running it. Traditional food, friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere
Nino's is a very nice italian restaurant with traditional high quality italian dishes. After a few minutes you feel like being in a italian town restaurant rather than in the center of a british city.
The food is really nice and has the whole range of italian dishes (pizza-pasta-meat-fish-antipasti). The quality and quantity is really good and the pricing is reasonable as well.
The service (which I think is familiy based) is good and no complains can be made.
Unfortunately we had too many starters so that we couldn't fit a dessert in. Next time we will!
Ninos has very tasty food (and at a very reasonable price) however it is always very crammed and busy when we go there, and the opening hours at lunch are not very long.
I felt that although very busy the service was still spot on, but it was not very intimate as we were very close to the people on the next table.
Nino's menu has anything from pizza, pasta and fish (mussels, lobster, salmon, sole, shrimp ) to meat dishes, but I never had dessert and never asked, since portion control is not on the menu - he may not have Dolci on his menu because it is limited to whatever the cook comes up with for the day. The web page calls this a ristorante pizzeria, whereas I call it a ristorante, because pizza is only one of a wide selection of dishes.
Nice place to visit,good food,service good too.
I really like Nino's. For me it is Italian like mamma makes. The food is unfussy but good (great pastas. pizzas, meat and fish) and relatively inexpensive. Service I would describe as somewhat shy yet attentive, and fundamentally Italian. Perhaps the only thing I wouldn't bother with again was the rocket and parmesan side dish, the rest was that good! I would far far far rather go here than one of the pizza / pasta chains because it is simply better - the fact it's independant is a bonus.
Packets of breadsticks on table why? They are so bland and boring! Wine by the glass overpriced. First course came quite quick. Second course arrived 45 minutes after first course plates were cleared, no apology offered for the wait or even recognition of the fact that we had been waiting ages! :-( Food was bland, nothing to write home about. Chicken dish £10.45 but had to order vegetables as a side order, extra £3.50. Overpriced, dull food, poor service won't be going back.
