I was really in the mood for Italian food. My cousin and I went here for dinner. Everyone said it was the best place in Frederick for Italian food. The service was excellent. However, the rest of the food was just okay. The lasagna was flooded with tomato sauce. The baked ziti was supposedly made with a marinara sauce. The... More

My husband ate here 20 years ago and we met up with some family members for dinner to try it again. We were all very full and very pleased with our choices. Appetizers were crab dip, stuffed portobellos and a shrimp dish. Dinners were a seafood pasta, veal parm, ziti and spaghetti. Loved them all. I saw some previous reviews... More

This is certainly not the fanciest or trendiest restaurant in Frederick, but the food is good quality and they nailed the taste and presentation of the traditional American Italian offerings. It has a quiet, almost homey atmosphere which makes for a nice dinner setting with family or friends. As a bonus, our server appeared to actually be Italian, which lends... More

This three-some enjoyed Nido's after a fun walk through Downtown Frederick. My husband enjoyed an poached egg dish and my son and I enjoyed the pizza. I am a pizza snob and was very pleased with Nido's. Only complaint, it wasn't busy late Sunday afternoon and I thought the service was slow. Having been a server for many years I... More

The food is very basic, plain Italian, good for children not really adult flavors. Outdoor patio very nice, service was very good. My only complaint. We had several babies with us, who were really well behaved. Occasionally there would be a small cry. We got stared down by couples having romantic dinners. This is family restaurant with ok food, I... More

Not the fanciest, nor the most pretentious, but certain the BEST food on the Hill especially for the value - eat and enjoy!

The food here is excellent! The white pizza makes a great appetizer to share. Everything meat or eggplant is delicious. Enjoy!

Have eaten here twice since the new management has taken over. While this is not a high end restaurant, if you pick your meals carefully I think you can get a decent meal. The best part of the restaurant I think is the covered outdoor area in the back. It has a full bar in the back and is peaceful... More
