I wasn’t impressed with Ninfa’s on Navigation 20 years ago. Everyone raved about it then. I ate there again about 14-15 years ago. Still was not impressed. The place seemed cramped and unclean. I can’t imagine that it’s improved much. The food was nothing special, to me anyway. Since I live in the east end, the location does not bother me but there are so many other choices in my ‘hood that Ninfa’s never makes it’s way up my list.
Those photos from Life magazine are really awesome!
