> Has anyone eaten at a restaurant in Rome called Nino's, near the Spanish
I have not eaten there as I tend to steer clear of the places near the Piazza di Spagna. However it does look like the food would be good--especially if you are comfortable ordering Roman food. But, you will probably be eating with a whole lot of tourists who would be wondering where the fettucine alfredo and/or the veal parmigiana are on the menu. :-)
It is located on via Borgorgnona, 11
> Do we need reservations?
It is always a good idea to have a reservation at virtually all restaurants in Italy--have your hotel make these for you. It is closed on Sunday.
>Is it very expensive?
It depends on what your standard of expensive is. My sources indicates that it is about $35 for dinner without wine. So I would guess that dinner for two with a house wine would be a walk out cost of $90.
>Is it the best choice?
Hard to say. But I would suggest that you refer to the information about several restaurants which I had recommended in posts of a couple of weeks ago. I would add Da Paris to that list which is in Piazza San Calisto in Trastevere. The web site http://www.twenj.com has wonderful information about Rome, the restaurants there and, importantly, how to order a meal in Italy. If you haven't read the information at their site, I urge you to do so.
