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 521.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please make your desserts as delicious as your apps and entrées. The lava cake wasn’t one and the profiteroles were a huge disappointment. Stick to the classic versions of both.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lisa our server was not attentive. She rarely checked on us. Other servers checked on us though. She was very attentive to the other tables she had around us though. We were late to our next engagement because of her delay in service.
