I'm not a pasta fan, or a fan of paying for anything you can make at home for less than a dollar. That being said, I love Nino's! I recently dined there and had a beautifully cooked rosemary veal shank, pillowy tender gnocchi and bolognese and my favorite, the fettucine Michaela, which I count as a can't miss dish of the Atlanta cuisine scene. The scallops and shrimp have always been tender, cooked with the light handed finesse many chefs lack, and the pasta is always perfectly al dente, but honestly, they could put that saffron-pernod sauce on anything and I'd lick it clean. This is the ONLY Italian restaurant in Atlanta, or anywhere for that matter, that I've enjoyed enough to rave about. The service is impeccable, one of the last restaurants I've found maintaining the standards of fine dining that veteran diners expect.
