No one would have predicted that this small room, which began as a coffeehouse and almost immediately segued into a full-fledged restaurant, would become such a popular spot. Perhaps it's the intimacy of the place, with its mere 38 seats. Even though--or perhaps because--the tables are so close together, the room has an appealing energy. The well-prepared food, on a menu that's the right length for a bite-size restaurant, includes eight appetizers, a half-dozen pasta dishes and five main plates, notable among which are tournedos di vitello, medallions of veal filet in a fresh mushroom sauce. Cafe Nini is named for Alicia (Nini) Barbieri, the third generation of the Da Edoardo restaurant family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great food but it was cold in the restaurant. Other patrons were cold too. We asked about it but nothing was done. Apr 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by While the food and service are top notch, the space is very crowded. Apr 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent food, value and atmosphere. Mar 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everyone's food was fresh, freshly prepared, attractively presented, served hot and well-conceived. Nothing was trendy or radical in conception, and neither was it boring or uninteresting. The above amount paid is after a $50 coupon was subtracted. Mar 9, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by I ordered a steak med rare and I received it almost well. My husband ordered veal med rare and received it well. Our over all comment was thank goodness for your sauce. We were disappointed. We did meet up with some good friends and did not want to say anything about the food. We can't say if we will be back soon. Aug 27, 2013
