Talk to anyone who’s ever been to Nino’s and they’ll say two things, good food and large portions! I can eat but I’ve never been to Nino’s and not had members of my party get a doggie bag.

Probably one of the best Italian places I have ever been to. Food quality is great and portion size is even better. Service is good too. You will go home with leftovers. Early bird special is great.

Being Italian I know good Italian cooking and it's here. Nice variety and very generous portions. The dining room is a little noisy but not unbearable. There's lines in the summer but great in the fall.

Our full tray is meant to feed 15-20 people. Unfortunately, they do not come with bread & butter, but we also sell our bread by the loaf.
