It's rare these days to find an authentic family run Italian restaurant, but that is what Nino's is. Under the patriarch's watchful gaze, the family deliver a taste of how Italian restaurants used to be before the march of the brands. Thoroughly recommend.

Visited here on a Friday without booking and luckily could be catered for. Trattoria, with a more formal service it is - hearty dishes from a varied menu, the pizza and the pasta were both very good. Hope to revisit soon.

Having gone to Nino's for years, and seen it move from Reading centre to Pangbourne, it's only gotten better. The food is great (they love their cheese), the guys are really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is lovely! 10/10, just make sure you book ahead.

Lovely cosy friendly place - food was just lovely. Good sized portions and really fair value for money. Family-run successful business which they are very proud of and so they should be. When in Pangbourne again, I will go back.

Booked online the evening before. Fantastic service and meal. Surprisingly we had two courses and was there for only an hour and half, but it felt as though we weren't rushed. Very popular restruarant with constant flow of customers.

This is a small charming restaurant with lovely authentic tasting Italian food. I had the pasta with dolcelatte, walnuts and cream - fabulous. Really attentive service too, and a gluten free option as well.

Had early evening dinner on a Saturday. Good job we booked because it soon filled up with other diners who all seemed to have booked in advance. We were familiar with the Ninos brand having lived in Reading when we first moved to Berkshire in the 80's. It was great to see that the family business is still family owned... More
