Nino's Restaurant Review

: The dapper gentleman at the door is chef-owner Nino Selimaj, and his quiet pride in his restaurant filled with an attractive crowd is evident. The attractions are engaging surroundings, suave and caring service, and the Italian food. Begin with small plates, perhaps marinated seafood salad or burrata with aged prosciutto, heirloom tomato, oven-roasted peppers and marinated broccoli rabe. Pasta and main course highlights include pappardelle with duck and porcini rag├╣ in a tomato and duck glaze, and braised lamb shank with roasted potatoes in a Barolo sauce. You won't want to miss out on dessert: chocolate mousse cake, tiramisu, ricotta cheesecake. After the feast, retreat to Nino's comfortable lounge for an after-dinner cocktail.
