As someone that has lived in East Northport out on Long Island for the majority of my life (and New York on top of that), I have always been accustomed to some of the best Italian food there is. Nina’s Pizzeria in the heart of downtown Northport is no exception. I have always driven past this place yet for some reason have never gone inside. Boy will that change now with the experience that I had the other night.
I went there with a good friend of mine and was warmly greeted by the owner Artie and our very pleasant waitress. The atmosphere was very chill yet at the same time family friendly and in a great location. We were treated to the specials that they had going that- one was a Fire Roasted Chicken with a cherry tomato sauce and Papas Brava. The cherry tomato sauce complimented the moist and flavorful chicken very well and paired off amazingly with the papas brava which also had a really great sauce on it. The second dish that we had was called Rigatoni Valentino which consisted of Portabello mushrooms, artichoke and dried tomatoes in a rich pesto sauce. Delicious. This goes without saying that you can have a very strong pasta dish and not have to include a protein to elevate it. It already was at that point.
You can’t really go out to a restaurant like this without a yummy dessert. Enter their Apple Cobbler topped with Vanilla Ice Cream. A dish that has been done before but you can taste every element very well from the sweet apples to the creamy ice cream. Overall, me and my friend were stuffed yet satisfied, the way you want to leave a restaurant.
Of course they have more than the specials. They have some really amazing pies, salads and wing deals that will satisfy you, your friends and family. You can even order online using their well designed website. Take a look at this link for more information. So if you happen to be in the Northport area, stop by Nina’s for a good time.
