Superb service made this evening special. Italian style food was very special....Italian style meat balls and Veal were particularly good. And a touch of Limoncello at the end was inspired.

We have eaten at Nino's several times and whether you are sat outside or inside you can always be guaranteed excellent, attentive service and great food. The restaurant is only small but the atmosphere is of comfort, cosiness and a great feeling of being welcomed.

Three of us went for Pizza here on Saturday night. It is a small but cozy restaurant with efficient and friendly staff. We had lovely pizzas and delicious tiramisu. They gave us complimentary liquors. Highly recommended.
