One of the Best – I've been going to Cino's for many many years and it's always a special treat. The waiters are sometimes grouchy and the decor doesn't change, but the food is always delicious and satisfying. It's a great neighborhood institution - especially as the neighborhood gentrifies- and it always feels like you're dining with friends and family.
I would be very sad if Cino's ever left us.
Moonstruck! – Ok-- don't know why I chose that "title," but I do know that the food at Cino's is great, great, great. I made my first visit there two days ago and have already returned! True, the ambiance is something out of Goodfellas, but it the food and waiters are out of this world! A definite place to visit in Fort Greene/Clinton Hills! Bon Magnifique!
Fort Greene tradition – Cino's is a wonderful Italian restaurant. The menu has all your favorite italian dishes and a nice variety of meat and fish dishes. The decor and waitstaff is not exemplary, but it is great when you are in the mood to escape the trendy restaurants that have taken over Dekalb ave. I highly suggest it simply because the food is delicious and you can have a very nice meal without the hole in your pocket.
Go to Cino's. Capiche? – Old, old world. DeKalb Avenue is now wall-to-wall with trendy, nuevo-something restaurants, and many of them are very good. But there is nothing else like Cino's. Great authentic (like, the waiters are middle aged men who wear suits and speak heavily-accented English) Italian food for not that much money. You could say that the decor leaves something to be desired if you were a snob with no sense of history, but why would you wanna be like that? Cino's is grad and faded old-world, authentic in a world where authenticity is getting harder and harder to find. Yum.
lovethisplace – I grew up eating at this establishment and loved it.
The food is wonderfully fresh and flavorful and reasonably priced. I now live in Maryland, but I make this my 1st stop whenever I hit the BIG APPLE. Hope you'll love it too!
