Highlights

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 5 out of 5 by Service excellent, food excellent, ambiance excellent. Nov 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent food and very friendly personnel. I had friends visiting from Hungary and took them there. We really enjoyed a good dinner in a friendly, warm and cozy atmosphere. Aug 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by I always enjoy Café Nini. I have had excellent servers. The food is wonderful and I love the carrot cake. Last evening, I sat at the bar until my friend arrived. The Bar Maid could have been friendlier. She was just alright. A couple arrived a few minutes later and sat at the bar and she just poured herself all over them. I have often thought it would be nice to see the owner once in awhile. It would be a nice touch for her to make herself known. I called for a reservation around 3:00 and the person who answered seem aggravated with me for calling. I like Café Nini and these comments are only meant to help. People like to feel welcome.
