Overall the three of us enjoyed our meals. Starters; one had the asparagus and said it was superb, another had the goats cheese which she liked but left half as it was a large portion, I had the bruchetta which I found salty and not very nice. Mains; one enjoyed the chicken Milanese with a side salad, one had the rack of lamb which was tender and perfectly cooked. I had steak Diane which was not what I expected as the sauce was too piquant for me (I have had this in a lot of different restaurants and I cook it myself, it usually has cream in the sauce) the steak was tender though. Two of us had a selection of vegetables which were a good choice. We didn't have a dessert but looking at the menu were very tempting! We had a good bottle of white wine @ £20.

The food is delicious & the drinks tremendous. The service was attentive & faultless. Nino's menu is extensive enough to be interesting & satisfying, & also authentic. I like the decor, the soft music, & friendly ambiance.

This was my second visit in the space of a few days. The food, as on the previous visit, was excellent. Unfortunately, there was a long hiatus after our main course plates had been cleared and eventually I had to ask for the dessert menu and again, after some time, for our dessert order to be taken. The problem seemed to be that the junior member of the waiting staff, who had been looking after us very well, had gone off duty. But it was a bit embarrassing to be neglected when with a guest.
