Simple and easy review. This little gem is tremendous. It is a small location; which for me is part of the reason I Love it. It is quaint, cozy, and efficient. The food is fresh, locally sourced and delicious. The portions are fair and fulling. The server who waited on us (Feb 10th 2017) was clearly a veteran. He knew... More

This is a nice place to have high-end Italian food. The restaurant is small so make a reservation. The food is good and consistent, although sometimes a bit too salty. The downside is that the lighting in the restaurant is so dim, most people have trouble reading the menu or appreciation the pretty presentation of the plates.

Hard to find but so glad I did! Everything is so fresh, and made from scratch in house! One of the best meals I've had in s very long time-and I eat out all the time in my work travels. My server Laney was awesome! I will definitely come back here the next time I'm in BRL!

Like a lot of nice restaurants in BR, this one is tucked unobtrusively in a plaza next to a UPS store and frozen yogurt place. We went on a game night with no reservation, thinking restaurants like this would in general be empty. We were wrong! But they found a spot for us anyway! this is excellent Italian style cuisine...

The husband and wife owners turn out a fresh, delicious, and consistent product that keeps my girlfriend and I coming back. The service is spot on and the food is extremely well priced for the quality. A must try.

We had a great dinner here and took our team while we were in the city on business. Bruno was an excellent waiter and so helpful with recommendations and answering our questions. We shared the pizza appetizer and it was delicious. Then we each got an entree. The ravioli, carbonara and steak and pasta special were all great! Finally we... More

I recently had the privilege of dining at Nino Italian Restaurant in Baton Rouge. Upon arrival I was greeted at the door and shown a table immediately. The waiter took my drink order came back and gave me the run down on the specials. He made many suggestions and asked me my preferences. This is an Italian restaurant that focuses... More

The husband and wife team that own and run this restaurant are incredible. The husband and chef is phenomenal. He is incredibly picky about the quality of his ingredients, from the herbs to the meats and fish. He almost always has a fish special, and it is always perfection. He cooks healthy too so if you're looking for the usual... More
