Great location in Mid-town, old school feel to this place. Wait staff great. Chef came by table to check on us after he prepared a delicious meal and was very nice.
good value for NYC - dinner, apps and drinks all around $100.

For almost 20 years, I have been traveling to midtown Manhattan on business. For that same time, Nanni's on 46th has been my go-to Italian spot. Over so many years, and so many visits, the blush of novelty fades. However, this place still delivers.

Pros: broad menu, great pricing for NYC, proximity to Midtown, ability to always get a table, friendly and knowledgable staff who have been there "forever" and know the food.

Cons: can be a bit tight and noisy during peak dining hours.

Give Nanni's a try - start out with pasta and Nanni's sauce, perhaps with a side of cheese and salami, finish with the veal and a simple Chianti. You'll be glad you did.

We visited Nanni's on a whim and we were pleasantly surprised! The entire experience was great from the waiters, to the service, to the food and complimentary dessert, beverything was fantastic.
The service and attention to detail was superb and the food was excellent. We got four different entrees and all four we fantastic. The soft-shelled crab may have been the best but the pasta dishes were also great. The sorbet dessert was wonderful and a great palette cleanser.
This was a wonderful dining experience and worth a try if you are in the area!

The quality of the Italian food is still good and the service is excelente. The only problem is the limited time they maintain for lunch as they close before 2:30 p.m.

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.
