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.

Cafe Nini is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 708.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Our service was really slow. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks. Waited over an hour for our entrees to come out. Potatoes on one entree were cold. Had to always ask for refills. Food was good, but had higher expectations. Will give it another try someday.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The food was great but the service is very slow - it took 25 minutes to receive our bill after we requested it. The restaurant is small and the tables are crowded together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cafe Nini is awesome. The drinks at the bar are always a full pour and they are STRONG. I always order a Lemon Drop Martini and it is by far the best one I have had my entire life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food is always great, but the service is just okay. They seem to have a lot of staff for the number of tables, so the service should be awesome - the staff seem to prefer to hide in the back chatting amongst themselves.
