THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nido Restaurant Review

: Michele Iovino comes from a family of restaurateurs (Girasole) and honors her Neapolitan heritage with affordable, authentic regional cuisine. Everything here is fresh and simple---wonderful baked eggplant, zucchini, basil and mozzarella, meltingly tender grilled octopus. For dessert, be sure to try the chopped nut semifreddo, which is unique and delicious. The room is as neat as a pin, with beige linens and soft lights, and a feeling that you are definitely in Italy. Not just for locals, Nido attracts hungry, discriminating diners from all over for honest cuisine.
