Nino Review

A favorite among international journalists and the rich and famous for decades (Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had their celeb-studded rehearsal dinner here), Nino is Rome's best loved dressed-up trattoria. The interior is country rustic alla Tuscana, and, along with its look (and waiters!), Nino sticks to the classics when it comes to its food—basically Roman and Tuscan staples. Start with a selection from the fine antipasto spread, or go for the cured meats or warm crostini (toasts) spread with liver pâté. Move on to pappardelle al lepre (a rich hare sauce) or hearty Tuscan ribollita soup, and go for the gold with a piece of juicy grilled beef. If you're not Italian, or a regular, or a celebrity, the chance of brusque service multiplies—insist on good service and you'll win the waiters' respect.

    Food mixed, service poor

    My wife and I with another couple had dinner at Nino's several weeks ago on the recommendation of a friend in Rome. Perhaps we should have included her to obtain better service. We were promptly seated and then ignored by the staff for most of the evening. However, this appeared to be the fate of most tables around us also. The service we did received was rude. The quality of the food was inconsistent. Some dishes were quite good and others very mediocre. The experience was very poor compared to other meals and service received throughout Italy.

    Nice place full of locals authentic

    We liked this place. All was fine. Service was friendly unlike what's been written about it. Staff knowledge of English is limited but theyre friendly and try to help. We're charged for an item we ordered by never received and the check was quickly adjusted Room was full of Italians we were the only tourists in the place. Gotta love that!
