Wow what a restaurant the interior is beautiful an the food is fabulous the pizza is excellent an the people well what can you say true new yorkers with personality plus Eli Gold an Walter are what this town needed they meet , greet an make people feel welcome. It's truly the only place in Alabama to eat Italian food. I rate this the best Italian food around. Went back to Nino's an was expecting the food to be as good as the first , well to our surprise it was even better than the 1st time . we can't believe how gret the food was just the smell when we walked in was enough to knock you over it's true Italian food with great service the people copuld not be any nicer.
Nino's deserves more than just 5 stars! We live 3 hours away in north Georgia, but our daughter and her family live in Pelham. When we visit, I have to go to Nino's at least once while I'm there. Walt and his staff are always very nice and friendly. The marinara sauce is out of this world (Walt, PLEASE bottle it so that I have it any time I want!!!!). The other sauces and non-pasta dishes may be just as delicious, but I can't get passed the marinara sauce to try anything else. It really is that good! If you live in/near Pelham or just passing through, you have to try Nino's. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
The food is wonderful and one of the owners and his wife who are always there are so friendly. We go about once every 2 months and order the same thing and they remember everytime. They have the best Ravioli in town in my opinion and my husband loves their Sun dried tomato basil vinagrette dressing.
