Finally found a Margueritta pizza!

Decor is very different, servers very nice and I finally found my favorite pizza - and it was good too!

Daniel was our server at Nonna Lisa's, and he was just a delight! We were seated within 5 minutes of walking in (during peak dinner hour) and, while it doesn't seem like it from the outside, the inside of the restaurant is an enchanted forest! The tables are made of beautiful sanded wood, there were curious woodland creatures everywhere, and... More

We ate at Nona Lisa's the food was amazing the portions were large and the flavors were out of this world. We had great service but we did not feel rushed a nice comfortable place for family or romance.

We were here on a busy Memorial Day weekend and had excellent food and the waitress was wonderful. She was running around and taking such great care of everyone. We had pizzas that were wonderful and perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is homey and interesting - Up North feel.

We visited on memorial weekend, had nice food - the tiniest bit of under seasoning was possible, but genuinely very nice. Wonderful service by David How. I would highly recommend it to couples and families!

My family stopped here for dinner on our way to the U.P. We had pizza, lasagna and spaghetti and it was all delicious. It has a wood, twinkle light and animal head decor. We don't love the animal heads but overall it had a nice, warm atmosphere. The server was nice and friendly. It was a good choice for the... More

When you walk in you may think you are at some steak house restaurant but it is in deed an Italian restaurant. The food was just average but priced like it was high class. All pasta dishes were at least $17-20 with a meat... No other sides (salad, soup, etc.). Our water was served in a plastic cup with a... More

The wood fired oven pizza was fantastic! Angie offered great service with just the right amount of attention.

The decor is great, fun place to sit and look around. Food was average, I was expecting a lot better for the price. I had the chicken marsala, it was overcooked and underseasoned, the veggies and polenta it came with were good. Basically Olive Garden prices for Fazoli's food.

This restaurant is so beautifully decorated. Very large place with A LOT of seating. Kids would LOVE this!! Probably a million dollars worth of exotic animals GALORE!! So If you support PETA, RUN FAR AWAY!! Although it's looked the same way for as long as I can remember. Same staff too. Some great waiters, some rude waitresses. The "manager" could... More
