Nino's Restaurant Review

: A charming ambience and a patio add to the experience at this well-known regional Italian eatery on the edge of River Oaks and Midtown. The Mandola family owns three restaurants at this complex and the authentic dishes come from old family recipes. We always start with the popular charbroiled oysters oreganato on the half shell, and we’re also fans of the thin-crust pizzas that emerge piping hot from the wood-burning oven, particularly the cippolino smothered in caramelized onions and roasted garlic. Pasta dishes are equally hearty; we recommend the fettuccine scampi and the crispy Italian bacon-topped penne amatriciana. Veal Vincent with artichokes and lemon butter, meanwhile, is another favorite.
