Nino's Pizza 'A Little Taste of New York in Texas

Anyone try this new northwest pizza place yet? I just received a coupon for it in the ValPak mail thing.

13776 Research Blvd in Anderson Mill Shopping Center
Monday - Thursday: 11am to 9pm
Friday and Saturday: 11am to 10pm
Sunday: 12pm to 8pm

And apparently they do sell pizza by the slice!

  1. While I haven't been there yet, as a NY'er Reales to me is the best pizza in Austin.

      Sofa King,

      I've enjoyed some of Reales pasta, but was totally disappointed by their "Margarita pizza" (their spelling). I tried it a while ago; shortly after Tuscany Market and Cafe closed.

      1. re: sweet100s

        Try the Roasted pie at Reale's, it's delicious. I wish they were open on Sunday, I might go get one today.

        Haven't been to Nino's yet either.

    2. I picked up a slice and a sandwich to share for lunch. The slice was really good! I ordered it well done with sausage, onions and light jalapeno. The crust was still crisp when I got it home and I could taste the individual toppings. The sauce was flavorful but not too much or too sweet. The sandwich that I ordered is called the New Yorker and was recommended by the woman at the counter - who, by the way, bothered to engage in conversation about the restaurant and some of the ties to New York. I appreciated her attitude a lot. Back to the sandwich... the New Yorker is Ham, Mortadella, Salami, Capicolla and Pepperoni served on what I deem to be fresh french bread with lettuce, tomato, mayo, italian dressing and my addition of banana peppers. It had great flavor for which I can see that cravings will become very likely.

      Good food and nice people at a very reasonable price (pizza slice + 6" sandwich was $10.50 and easily enough for two medium hungry adults

      They were not very busy, but it was 2:30 or so in the afternoon on a gorgeous Sunday. Also, .a little disappointed that there is no wine or beer on the menu. I failed to ask if BYOB is acceptable.

      1. Just ordered and devoured an18" pie...EGGSALANT, i will be returning often. This pie blows away Brooklyn Pie Co. & Saccones. Ninos crust is delicious. You know who has really crappy pizza... wait for it wait for it , here it comes here it comes...Conans! Their pizza is terrible!

        1. has anyone tried nypd pizza downtown across from the convention center?

            OMG! I just tried their pizza last week and it was the best I had! I'm going again tonight.

            1. re: Eatsomemore

              Nino's or the one nypd downtown?

          2. Just returned from Ninos today, what a total dissappointment from last time. They had a special two toppings on a 18" for the price of a 15". The crust was way thin, nothing like last time. I than went to Reales $3 off a large and it was way better, not to mention a much heavier pie with more ingrediants.

              Maybe the pizza chef (who, I think, I also owns the place) had the night off. We brought one home on Friday and it was really great! Hmmm...
