Nino’s Cucina Italiana is a tribute to our father, Nino. He still travels constantly to all the locations to make sure everything is done “Nino’s Way,” with quality food, personality, and love.

Over 75 years of an Italian family tradition in baking and cooking from three generations has culminated in Nino’s Cucina Italiana. Our Italian dishes are centuries old recipes handed down from our family throughout the years. We prepare all our food daily—making fresh dough, sauces, mozzarella cheese, pasta and our delicious meatballs in-house.

    We were greeted, and seated quickly for our reservation, placed @ a table in a new addition to the restaurant. The service was very good, and our dinners were delicious and portions were generous. We enjoyed it, and will return!!

    veal picatta was thick, breaded and tough...instead of a thin slice, lightly dusted in flour and flash fried. Other entree was rigattoni..very good.

    We ate early (5:15 pm reservation) and all went great. By the time we left it was getting busier and had more noise, but still pleasant. The food was great - highly recommend the pork chop; so tender and well seasoned!

    Nino’s was a very pleasant surprise! My husband and I were looking for a nice place to have dinner the night before a scheduled medical procedure. Nino’s far exceeded our expectations. Great service and our meals were excellent. I especially recommend the wild mushroom ravioli!

    Food was outstanding and service was excellent. My complaints are the water glasses need to be rinsed better. The drinks (non-alcoholic) always taste like bleach. I started bringing my own. And their "Italian" dressing is nothing but oil and vinegar with some herbs floating on top. It's not good. I started bringing my own dressing as well. I'll definitely be back.

    A very large somewhat chaotic environment with large outdoor space in the front; a middle bar area that feels more like a nice, small hotel bar and two other large spaces that dont seem to come together that well in decor and ambiance. Lost of large parties. The servers appear to be mostly college students and are very earnest but could use some more training menu knowledge building. The handmade pasta is excellent and made into some complex dishes worthy of anywhere. Caesar salad romaine etc seemed old. The meat/cheese plate is enormous but lacks some sense of style; crostini etc. Bread was old and/or tasteless and not worth chewing on. All in all- I would go back- try and get into a quieter space- and stick with that great pasta. Excellent wine by the bottle list- nothing special by the glass.

    Our soft drinks (Pepsi and Dr. Pepper) both tasted like chlorine or soap or some cleaning agent. Had to just drink water. The calamari was a little too heavily breaded and a bit overcooked. The rack of lamb was awesome as was the chicken Alfredo. Our server was exceptional and showed great talent and artistry with our anniversary dessert.

    We took our daughter here for a special dinner at parents weekend at ECU the food was great and the service wonderful. We all had pasta, Spaghetti with meatballs, mushroom ravioli , and rigatoni with vodka sauce. We also had specialty cocktails , the bar area looked very nice too , the only area of improvement would be the calamari was a little over fried but otherwise 5 stars all around - did I say the service was great

    Our app came out the cheese and sliced meat- gorgeous board and was totally enjoying it - about 5 mins later our entrees came out! My white truffle paprdelle was horrendous. Highly recommend the chicken parm My other daughter hated her meal too thought it was gonna be made in the Parmesan cheese well

    Food and service were excellent. Saltimbocca with vegetables was sublime. Several large groups seated near us, plus we were next to the bar…lots of loud, raucous conversations which made it impossible to converse. So we spent my birthday dinner smiling and nodding at each other.

    Nino’s is always a perfect dining experience from beginning to end. Plenty of variety on the menu, and every dish is excellent. Great wine list and delicious desserts. The atmosphere is lively without being loud, and we love the outdoor seating option. Service is always impeccable. Greenville’s best restaurant!
