About Nino’s

The Oldest, Family-Owned Italian Restaurant in Atlanta

Nino’s, opened in 1968, has been owned and operated by Antonio Noviello since 1982.

Originally from the Amalfi Coast of southern Italy, Antonio worked in Monte Carlo, then Bermuda where he met his wife Helen, an Atlanta resident. After moving to Atlanta in 1981, Antonio’s life-long dream of owning his own restaurant became a reality when he purchased Nino’s.

For more than forty-one years, Antonio has taken pride in serving authentic Italian Cuisine made with fresh, imported ingredients and cooked to order for each guest. In 2006 Antonio’s middle daughter Alessandra became the manager and has since taken over with her husband Micah. Alessandra and Micah take pride in keeping the long-standing traditions and reputation of serving exceptional Italian cuisine alive.

Nino’s has attracted devoted locals who return time and again, along with a long list of who had heard of Nino’s reputation and stopped in to sample the fare.

Many of the dishes on Nino’s menu are original recipes brought from Italy by Antonio and his brother Giuseppe. Antonio’s favorite dishes are those named after his daughters, Gabriella, Alessandra, and Michela; his wife Elena (Helen); his brother Giuseppe; his brother-in-law Paola, and himself and the grandchildren. The pasta dish which bears the name of Nino’s is a recipe from Mama Noviello.

Antonio, Alessandra and Micah invite you to relax and savor some of the great culinary treasures of Italy in a memorable dining experience, at Atlanta’s Oldest Italian Ristorante!

Nino’s Authentic Italian Bar

My father grew up working in his father’s bar, Dopo Lavoro, back home in Sapri, Italy. That bar, much like Nino’s, is a rich part of our family’s history.
