As a child, the chef at Nina's Trattoria learned to cook—and eat—from cooking sessions with Grandma Nona and Mama Nina. Nona's menus were inspired by the village she grew up in, which overlooked the turquoise, fish-rich waves of the Mediterranean. Because she grew up on a farm, Nona insisted on robust local produce and the nicest cuts at the butcher and fish market, a sentiment she passed down through generations.
Today, chefs at Nina's Trattoria whip up a menu inspired by Nina and Nona's cooking, crafting traditional homages to their dishes as well as contemporary reinterpretations of recipes from Tuscany, Abruzzo, and other regions of Italy. Chefs hand-roll pasta, knead gnocchi, and bake decadent pastries for nibbling or luring Cookie Monster to the table at brunch and dinner. Guests may bring their own beer and wine, helping to foster a convivial, relaxed atmosphere akin to gathering around the family's dinner table.

“Lovely tasting menu - the staff is courteous and prompt - the food tasted AMAZING. You should definitely do this deal - I believe the tasting menu is only available at 5 and 7pm time slots, though - so you should probably note that when making a reservation if you do so online. I give this place 4.5/5 stars :)”
