"Nino's is worth the trip from any spot on the map. I myself traveled all the way from St. Louis, MO to enjoy a delicious dinner at this fine establishment. The service and the staff were really off the charts great!

Sunday night dinner with my very awesome Aunt and Uncle (John E.) along with my two cousins brought us to Nino's. My first time here and Uncle John told us anything we want they will make. So with that said the pressure was off, since the menu was making me drool. We started with grilled calamari (calamod) and baby octopus (I know I have pics I'll post). The starters were delish and only made me hungry for more. 

My turn to order..yikes! I don't know what I want, I'm lost in the excitement of this appetizer, wine and family time….hmm I say to the waiter "I like seafood and a little heat" He recommends the bouillabaisse, OMG wait until you see this picture!!! Let me say when the bowl hit the table I was already in a seafood coma. A lovely tomato based broth paired with calamari, shrimp, mussels, clams and fish, along with toasted Italian bread. I couldn't finish it all but I certainly tried. We skipped on dessert, all of us suffering from one bite too many.

I love love love Nino's! I don't know who Nino is but I wonder if he'd let me give him a hug!?"

"I love Ninos!  Wonderful Italian Food! They have the most gracious and kind staff ever. They make you feel like part of the family! They have no problems with special orders or that fussy relative we have have. The veal is always soft, tender and flavorful. No one in my parties have ever had anything but an excellent meal. When I am in Staten Island I will more foten then not stop here for dinner. For desert try the strawberries zabaglione."

"Went to a birthday party there over the weekend and had a good time, the atmosphere, service and food were outstanding!  I ordered the Baked Clams and Sole Oreganata, both were out of this world.  Highly recommended!   My girlfriend is a picky eater, the manager and staff were more then accommodating to all her special requests.  Thank you Nino's!!!!"

The food at Nino's is excellent. I've tried many of the appetizers and entrees and haven't been disappointed yet. For appetizers, I've had their baked clams, mozzarella in carrozza and calamari fritti and all were served fresh and in a timely manner. For entrees, I've tried their linguini in white clam sauce, grilled bronzini, filet of sole francese and all were tasty and delicious. For authentic italian and consistent service, Nino's is it!

I have been going to Ninos for many years.The service is fantastic with many varieties and specials. Ninos brings the feel of Italy to staten Island every time with their food and ambience. I usually have grilled octopus and the bronzini when available. Overall Ninos is my favorite italian restaraunt.

For a couple of years now my girlfriend and I have been dining at Ninos. Let me start by saying the food, service, and decor are excellent. The prices are also very fair. My girlfriend and I eat either inside or outside depending on the weather. I love everything on the menu. If you are a first time diner I highly recommend the Spiedini Romano and the Portabella mushroom with Gorgonzola cheese as appetizers. All the entrees are to die for!

My wife and I discovered Nino's in 1999, we've been hooked ever since. We eat there about once or twice a week. The food is excellent, the service, fantastic, and the owner and staff treat you like family. They cater to your every need. We've been to most of the popular restaurants on the Island but always come back to Nino's. Try the veal, best in the city.
