Great Italian food

Great service great food ! Loved the prosciutto spinach salad and the gnocchi on Gorgonzola sauce. They have to work a little on the decor and wine by the glass selection. Thank you Fernando and Frederica for the great service 😘

Do not come here if you are actually Italian, you will be sorely disappointed. The food was bland, overpriced, and the ambiance was dated.

Visiting PR from NY and we know our Italian meals and specialtirs. I recommend Il Nonno as a very good Italian restaurant, very close to Italian food. Our waitress, Zoey, was courteous, professional, and well mannered. Ask for her. I give Il Nonno two thumbs up. Visit if you're in Isla Verde, PR

We really enjoyed our dinner here. I liked that the menu noted the items that were a house specialty. I had the gnocchi which was tasty and what I would consider a healthy portion size. It tasted good, I could have eaten more but I was actually full. The restaurant was very quiet when we were there, despite it being... More

Excellent service & tasty food. I had excellent fried calamari followed by linguine in a white clam sauce. Also a fabulous Bombay Sapphire Martini. The restaurant is very popular with tourists and locals alike !!!
