Excellent! Best place in the pacific northwest !!! – Nana's is the absolute BEST place in the pacific northwest... Jim and his staff are truly amazing...the food is outstanding. I highly recommend Nana's to everyone....Try the take out pizza too - it's truly NY style and excellent...... Great job, Jim and staff !!!
We will be back again and again!!! – The food was outstanding. Warm, friendly service. We had a FUN time just waiting to be seated... sipping complimentary wine and watching the chef at work. He and the cooking staff move with the passion and enthusiasm of artists at work (love the Sicilian accents). At times they sing along with the lively music as did the patrons! Homemade breadsticks w/ olive oil mmmm! House & Ceasar salads are fabulous. Chicken Parmigiana w/ marinara or creamy tomato sauce to die for! Rib Eye Steak w/ Penne incredible! Plan on boxing up half your meal to leave room for their cheesecake NYstyle... best I have ever had! Goood coffee. Nothing commercial about this place an authentic Italian Ristorante! Relax, take in the experience & enjoy!
Best Food and Service – This place is amazing!! It has become our favorite, I am addicted to the seafood manicotti, and my husband is addicted to everything! Service was fast and great, They go above and beyond on portions, quality and have to be the friendliest place around. We heard about it from a friend and it has to be one of Monroes best kept secrets!
Can't wait to go back! – I love Nana's! The food is amazing and the service makes you feel like you are at home! It's all about good food, good friends and good times! They will also make whatever accomodations you want which is awesome! The portions are large so enjoy leftovers for days after!
Great place, great food, disappointing experience – I ordered ravioli w/ meat sauce, my husband ordered steak. Our salads were so gritty, we couldn't eat them. Our waiter responded, "that happens because of dirt in the fields". Does that mean the lettuce wasn't rinsed? We were not offered a replacement. Our meals came and I noticed my sauce lacked meat. Clearly it was marinara. Our waiters response, "well there should be meat in there, I'll bring you more". She returned with a small bowl of meat sauce. Was I supposed to add this to my marinara. It was so ridiculous, we could only laugh. Why wasn't my dinner just replaced? Later our waiter brought a free cannoli plate and said my order did have meat sauce written down. Did we just get a bad waiter, or is this standard for this place? I would love to come back, I just don't want the same experience.
Wow, what a nice little discovery this place was! Hidden on the back roads of Monroe, I never expected this to be so good! The owner is from New York, where he previously had a resteraunt. He said that he was supposed to be on one of the flights that crashed into the world trade center on 9/11, and that changed his life. His resteraunt is absolutely delicious! Huge portions, moderately priced for a sit-down resteraunt, semi-formal to casual. Check this place out!
Excellent – This place is the best kept secret in Western Washington! I know it sounds crazy, but this little spot has the best Italian food I've tasted. Everything on there menu is done right. If you're thinking that it's too far of a drive to Monroe to check this place out, you're all fools! Kidding of course, but seriously, you should take time out to give this place a try, you won't be disappointed you did.
The next best thing to little Italy... – This place is amazing!!! The best Italian food I have ever had. It's like being in little Italy. Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra serenade you at dinner. It is wonderful. The only thing that I am not really into is the music is kind of loud. Everyone is really friendly and the food just makes you happy. The best "full" feeling around. This place is definately a must try:)
