My wife and I ate at Ristorante di Nino last night. We enjoyed the meal very much. We started with the bruschetta pomodoro and the vegetable antipasti. Nino allowed my wife to choose whatever she wanted from the vegetable antipasti bar, which allowed her to select more of what she preferred and less (or none) of what she did not prefer. In particular, she thought the broccoli rabe was very well done. I had the spaghetti cacio e pepe for dinner, which was done just right and the pasta was cooked properly al dente. My wife had the spaghetti with clams, which she is still talking about this morning. We enjoyed the bottle of Nero D'Avola we had selected, and found it reasonably priced. We've seen some other reviews that describe it as a tourist trap, which we found odd given that it's not particularly close to any major sites and the clientele was mostly middle-aged and older Italians, not tourists. Regardless, that wasn't our experience. All in all, we would recommend Nino's if you are in the area.

I went there with my Fiancee on the last night of our trip to Italy and we found it by accident.
The food there was AMAZING!! So good that i had to thank the chef personally after the meal.
Very recommended.

Tourist trap, in my opinion. Even I can make better food and I'm not an Italian. We ordered a house wine and got a bottle of wine priced 14€. Also they bring us a basket of dry bread to table and it costs us 8€. And we did get an official receipt only after asking. Can't recommend.

Gentile cliente, innanzitutto le chiedo scusa se non siamo riusciti a soddisfare il suo palato, peró mi sorgono dei dubbi in quanto, quando il cameriere ha ritirato i piatti erano completamente vuoti e la signora si è anche espressa con un semplice "delicious".
In riferimento al conto le faccio presente che la ricevuta fiscale le è stata consegnata insieme al resto, che i 14,00€ non sono riferiti solo al vino (chardonnay imbottigliato 8,00€) ma se legge bene la ricevuta sono menzionate anche due coca cola ed infine un cestino di pane che non era assolutamente "secco" non costa 8,00€ ma come riportato sul menù facciamo pagare 2,00€ a persona compreso di servizio.
Distinti saluti Nino

Very disappointing food, service, and ambiance. I highly recommend going somewhere else. We ordered the bruschetta, rice balls, and carbonara. The pasta was somewhat decent, but not up to par with italian food.

The food was very good. We got pasta, rigatoni with cream and sausage and pizza diavola. There was only 1 other occupied table but the service was good. The waiter didn't seem too fluent in English and a little impatient to take our order but other than that it was good service. If you can forgo soda I recommend ordering water, you get a large bottle for 2.5 euros versus a can of soda for 3 euros. The food was very good and enough to take left overs back to our hotel. They do bring out a bread basket which for two people was 6 euros! Our bill came out to be 25.5 euros for pizza, pasta, water, coke, and bread. I would definitely return but only order water to drink and have no bread.
