I don't know where to start. Pasta is undercooked and 'Pasta Arabiata' is full or tart tasting tomatoes. Risotto's are salty and sticky. Nothing really has a WOW factor. To speak the brutal and honest truth - it really really sucks. Sorry Nino's. Definately not a personally recommended place to visit.

I had an Italian lunch at Nino - Cube Mall. Nino is near Ibis Hotel in Salmiya. Saurabh, My waiter was very helpful and cheerful. Nicely presented brown bread with butter on wooden plank was delivered on being seated. The bread was soft but not fresh. 3 colorful oils were on the table (Chili oil - Olive oil - Balsamic... More

Meh. That's the one word I have for this restaurant. Great views overlooking the Gulf - but really uninspired food served by people who seemed as if they'd rather be somewhere else. Pizza so-so. Penne Arrabbiata sauce one-dimensional. To top it all ... coffee machine not working. I mean, really? I'd rather be at Al Forno.

This place has a great view and staff. Food portions are large so order accordingly. We tried the pasta and the steak porchini. They served the steak cold which was not impressive.

The local and the service are great. The food is so so. Portions are extremely small; you can get 4 times more meat and fries at McDonalds for a fourth of the price, and you will be more satisfied because you get what you pay for. At Nino the portions are miniature size, with some harmless mini fries. The bread... More

I am a regular costumer of Nino, I love their Mexically pizza, and pasta al forno. You can feel the high quality ingredients used to make the food. The staff is very decent & helpful.

Their food is amazing and steaks are cooked perfectly (not overdone and very juicy). Also, their salads are great and generous in terms of portion size.
