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 1 out of 5 by I had a reservation for 6:30. When we got there they told us we had to wait for someone to leave even though there are empty tables. They told us the tables are reserved for other people. When I ask how long we would have to wait they told us when the people leave then we will be seated. We left without eating. Mar 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Table wasn't quite ready, waited 10 additional minutes. Server was good, though did not introduce herself. Food was good, but not outstanding--nothing special or different from any other restaurant. Overcooked broccoli. Will try again. Mar 22, 2015
