With a humble beginning and a hard work ethic he has been able to do what few other restaurateurs have done, to warm his way into the hearts of most New Yorkers while establishing an incredible dedication to service and a great love for food. Over the years Selimaj has culled a large, loyal following with his magnetic personality, dashing good looks and impeccably tailored suits bearing a bejeweled American flag on his lapel. His upscale restaurants have feature extravagant dishes, fresh seafood, homemade pastas, table side cooking and live music. He garnered much attention when he introduced the first ever $1,000 pizza — topped with six different kinds of caviar and Maine lobster – at Nino’s Bellissima Pizza.

You are warmed by the friendliness of the staff and welcomed into their romantic yet relaxing dining room.

I had the experience in dining at Nino's last night and was very satisfied with everything. We sat near the bar on the right side and the decor of the restaurant is appealing to the eye. We enjoyed our dinner very much. The taste and presentation was delightful. I also was very pleased with the managers kindness. He was very polite and courteous which made our evening quite enjoyable. I actually dined here two years ago and was not happy with the manager. Needless to say, I took a chance in coming back because I enjoyed the food and was happy to see a new face. We will definitely be coming back soon.

It is a little pricey for the food, even for NYC. There is occasionally a piano player/performer which is nice. The ceasar salad dressing is made in front of the table. The desserts are very good.

Staying nearby I wandered into Nino's for dinner, partly attracted by the fixed price menu. The service was good, and friendly. While not outstanding the food was good and substantial and the place had an old world charm about it. On the down side I found the very tired artificial roses on each table a bit too down market and the decorations rather shabby and inconsistent HOWEVER I was astonished at the large mural on the right as you enter, some 15 years old, depicting, among many others, Bill and Hilary Clinton and Donald and Melana Trump! Not a cheap restaurant I was disappointed that whilst coffee was included on my fixed price dinner Espresso cost me an extra $5.50 which was not mentioned when I ordered it.

Likes: interesting combo between ordering from the menu and servers walking around with food like at dim sum restaurants. Cucumber in rosemary sauce was refreshing but ok, state bird was fried with nuts and absolutely delicious and definitely a must try. grilled octopus in spicy red sauce was excellent and another favorite. chips with avocado and trout? dip was also delicious, tuna floss toast was good and crispy, beef tongue toast also excellent, pork belly with plum was crispy and fatty, string beans with lemon yogurt and blue flowers was also excellent. Wasn't too fond of the duck liver but that's just a personal preference. Peppermint tea with free refills. My favs of the night were the state bird, grilled octopus, chip dip, string beans and floss toast. Dislikes: waiting line and difficult to make reservations. Also why is tea so expensive? I could've bought a really nice box of expensive tea for the same amount.

Elegant restaurant, fine food, and great service! Nino makes you feel at home and is a most charming host. Very good pianist/singer adds a lovely dash of New York class to the surroundings. Definitely a repeat visit is in order.
