We came here as friends recommended it to us. We were lucky to get a table as they were very busy even though it was a Tuesday night. The food was beautiful wholesome Italian homestyle cooking we had pasta and the serves were very generous we were unable to have anything else except espresso. This was accompanied by complimentary amoretti... More

We wanted to know all about Nonna - love the pics on the wall. This place was recommended but our hotel and we were not disappointed - just really good, homestyle cooking. At the end of the meal they brought over amaretto and grappa.

This restaurant is not in the middle of the city and is really geared toward locals. We were recommended to this restaurant by locals, who like it. As Americans we were not treated well, almost as if we were an intrusion. The service left alot to be desired and the food was just mediocre. We finished our meal and just... More

Food was average selection. Pretentious menu only in Italian. Thick gluggy pasta made by Asian cooks in the kitchen. Certainly NOT Nonna's cooking.

The hotel Athena recommended Nonna Gina for lunch--it's just up the street. Great place to get refreshed after our train ride from Bologna. The food was just the right size for lunch, the house wine good and the digestivo welcome. This is so clearly a family run restaurant and it made it a very enjoyable atmosphere to dine in. My...

We, a group of 6, were in Tuscany for a week and ate every night in a different restaurant according to the TA listings but not this one that was recommended to us by a local. This - by far - was the best place of all. Nothing pretentious and nothing that will be to the taste of the average... More

We came here 3 years ago and returned with our family in April. Staff are delightful and service was good. The meat platter was lovely and everyone who had the gnocchi said it was the best ever! Recipe is a secret... The carbonara was a bit disappointing though. Lovely meal ended with complimentary Grappa or Amaretto. A special place!

This restaurant has won Routard prizes for many years and it looks so unassuming from the outside. Very close to Palazzo Rivizza, we popped along our first night and were treated to some culinary delights. We wanted vegetarian food and we each had a different menu option. The waiting staff speak little English, but this is not a problem as... More

Conveniently close to our hotel, Palazzo Ravizza. Very good food and service. Pretty casual and didn't need reservations 03/15. Nothing exceptional but above average.
