Good price, decent food – I went to Nonna yesterday for dinner. I was sat right away which was great. The restaurant is a bit cramped which wasn't a huge issue for me but I would have liked it more spacious. The waiter was okay. I am in food service and I completely understand how it is... however, he only checked on us 3 times... for a drink, the food, and the check. He didn't ask us how anything was, if we needed anything, etc. The food was okay. I ordered the fettuccine alfredo and honestly, I've tasted better. I love garlic but I think it was too overpowering and almost made the dish taste burnt. I don't know if I would go back. I've been to better italian restaurants so this would probably be last on my list right now.
Surprisingly great! – I have been to this restaurant many times with my wife, and it never ceases to surprise us- we thought it was going to be just a neighborhood second-rate eatery, but every dish is actually quite delicious. The mozzerlla is homemade, and the wine list is reasonably priced with great choices. i strongly recommend it.
Uninvited dinner guest – My friends and I went to Nonna the other night and I was excited after reviwing the menu online and reading the reviews....however the last thing you want as you sit down and start to sip you wine is to look down and see a giant insect (we know the one I'm talking about, but this siterdoesn't allow it to be used-very interesting by the way) walking on your purse! The diners next to us also experienced a disturbing "guest" during their meal as well. The wait staff was told, but really didn't seem phased by what had occurred.
The food was decent, but really who could enjoy a meal when your waiting for the next giant insect to come by and sit down next to you!
an Italian gem! – Sometimes you seek out treasures, other times you discover them. My father and I discovered Nonna last year. It's a rustic, warm and welcoming place that seems to say 'life is great' the minute you walk in the door. The decor is like an Italian villa that's been re-purposed for a restaurant. Wine bottles trim the ceilings and old photographs of past guests cover the South wall. The waiters greet you with genuine smiles and the manager is always circling without hovering.
And the food. The food is delicious. I've yet to try something I didn't like. The rigatoni arrabiata, the eggplant parmesan, the pappardelle with mushrooms - all with a couple glasses of Chianti - you can't beat it.
Good Italian Food – I want to Nonna the other night with my boyfriend. I didn't really want to eat out, but when I order my food the good service help me get over it. When I ate my meal I could not get over how good the food was. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes italian food or is just looking for a good meal. The decor is really nice as well.
Really Nice Italian Restaurant – Best Italian Food in the world. Great service, perfect decor, excellent Food. I just love this place. I went To Nonna with a few friends and we all loved it. We will be back really soon.
Great Spaghetti & Meatballs – The spaghetti and meatballs are so tasty. T-A-S-T-Y. The mratballs are huge. It is enough to feed two people. It is authentic Italian food.
Prima! – I went here last night (Wednesday) with a date and could not have been happier with the experience. We were seated right away, at a window seat no less, and the waiter was extremely attentive. The wine list had alot of interesting options and we were extremely pleased with the one we rather arbitrarily chose based on description alone. My entree of pork wrapped around sausage over polenta was perfection - with the pork being extremely tender. My date's mushroom pasta was likewise delicious and the simplicity + quality of it was similar to Italy. Also, the bread had a really unique texture which I thoroughly enjoyed (flatbread strips that were crunchy on the outside with a slight chewiness on the inside). Would definitely go back to Nonna!!
Really Nice Restaurant – My husband and I went to Nonna about two days ago. There service was really good. The staff was so kind to us. The food was also great, and the menu gave us alot of option to choose from. The restaurant decor was really nice. I would recommend Nonna to anyone looking for a nice dinner or the best italian food.
Great value, Delicious Italian, Romantic – I went to Nonna for dinner with my boyfriend upon realizing that the Chef Sammy DeMarco used to work as sous-chef under Gray Kunz, who we love. We decided to try Nonna out and had a lovely, romantic dinner. We were thrilled with the reasonable prices - $5-7 for aps, entrees in the teens, and nice wines by the glass. The space is cozy and warm, and the food was very good. Pizza had nice flavor, lasanga was rich and delicious, and pork with polenta was perfectly cooked. What a find! We will absolutely go back - I think we have a new neighborhood haunt.
