We were there last week and the food was good - and the atmosphere was tremendous.We sat at the bar and it perfect - can be private or can engage with those next to you.

We were looking for a special place to celebrate a couple of 'olde events.'. The Cafe Nini ,ore than for the bill; small, intimate, and very good. Likely would have rated it 4.5 stars, but that wasn't an option and we left in a good mood. We opted for the Dinner for Two and a bottle of wine for $43.... More

Reminds me of a true Italian bistro, small and quaint and very comfortable. However with that being said the tables are very close! So it takes a few minutes for it to feel private enough to have a conversation. Once you establish your own space, its always delicious! I always pick my favorites and once I find it I'm in!...

Made reservations and took the gf here. Service was great and the food was better. It was small and quaint but not over crowded. All in all she enjoyed our date here. We ordered the 2 for $44 and received chicken Parmesan, bread, salad and a bottle of wine. Also the 2 for $44 deal is good on any day.

Small quaint Italian cafe with charm. 3 of us had Chicken Marsala which was good, albeit quite bland. 1 had Perch which was good. We found the prices to be a little on the high side especially for what we got. Service was fine. All in all there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make us want to... More

Great food and service. Place for a special dinner or to meet people. As good as her father's place and even a better touch on a few dishes. You will not be disappointed.

We were trying to find a restaurant on Saturday night without reservations, saw Cafe Nini and they were able to get us in! Wonderful deal involving two dinners and a bottle of wine, lovely spot. Will return.

Cafe Nini makes a wonderful butternut squah ravioli. I have found it really hard to choose something else from their menu, it's that good. I have a taken bites from friend's plates, and the food has always been great. The restaurant if very small, which adds to its charm. Reservations are highly recommended. Friendly staff. A little pricey for what... More

We have been to Cafe Nini three times and the dinner for 2 @ 42.95 can't be beat. You have a choice of entrees with house salad, bread, and a bottle of house wine. We prefer the Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chicken Picatta and Chicken Marsala were our choices on this visit and each was excellent. The bread is baked on... More
