A cheap and good way to enjoy simple Italian food

I have been for lunch and I enjoyed the menu of 10 euro with pasta (I recommend farfalle with shrimps) meat (nice turkey but with vegetables and French fries) and house wine.

The pasta is really delicious; pay attention to the degustation menus - might be too much for one person. I've been several times for dinner, it was almost full each time. The main waitress seems to be stressed during the 'rush hours', but she's quite nice. The house wine, both white and red, are slightly 'frizzante'.

The Trattoria della Nonna Emilia offers a good selection of cured meats and cold cuts to be accompanied with the "gnocco fritto" a must to try. I've been there few times and all the first courses I have tried are delicious. I've never been able to order the main course. I promise to skip the starter next time. The staf... More

Like I said, I like to interact with restaurant folks. In this case it was the owner. He took time to explain the menu to us, to the point that he brought us samples. We had a good dinner here and some fun too. If you like to sit quietly it's good for that also. The pork tenderloin Milanese and... More

Once you're in the front of the restaurant, you don't have such a good feeling as the entrance is not that nicely decorated. But after you enter, you feel like home. The restaurant is nicely decorated, staff is polite. We also found English menus, which were really useful. Food was delicious!

Nonna Emilia is a restaurant with very good italian food and it's not really expensive. Also the service is very nice and the staff is very friendly (they might struggle a little with english, but they try very hard to understand and communicate with the client).

First meal was #3 Tasting menu. Good but not outstanding. Very pleasant service. I would testing and try different specific items. They quality of the service and nearness to Crown Plaza would bring me back.

A great evening @ Trattoria Nonna Emilia, enjoying amazing local food from Emilia Romagna region with an international atmosphere. You can appreciate local delicatessen with a personal touch of Michele, the owner, who speaks fluent English and has a lovely attitude with all customers, in particular with female customers :-) The restaurant was packed but the service and the quality...

I went this evening to Nonna Emilia and it was a very nice experience. The two ladies were very welcoming and very nice and helpful. I took the veal with gorgonzola as the main course which I would recommend as it is very good. Overall, a very good experience and i would recommend this restaurant.
