My wife and I visited Nanni's on the recommendations of two people we met at the bar at the Barclay's Intercontinental. A short stroll later we walked down the stairs and were greeted by the the Host who, despite us having no reservations, found us a great table right away. Granted, it was late on a Thursday night.
The place has minimal decor but a ton of ambiance. We told our waiter what we liked (chicken for her, meat for me) and told him to surprise us. A bottle of regional red was brought over along with a perfect bruschetta. We witnessed a lot of "interaction" between the staff who had to be all from the same family.
Fresh bread came next followed by a Caprese salad. Quick service and silver and glasses were always refreshed.
Entrees arrived, my wife's being a thin sautéed chicken cutlet in a cream sauce. Mine was a perfectly cooked veal chop. Both were excellent.
Too full for dessert but that, along with coffee were offered.
Prices were reasonable. We will keep Nanni's on our short list and can't wait to share our find with family and friends the next time we are in the city.
