Terrific Menu - excellent service

Yet another great place to eat in the twin cities. Maybe a little off the beaten path but well worth the trip. They have a slew of great menu options (try the Cobia appetizer) and one of the most unique -and best - set of pasta options I've ever had. The squid ink pasta not only looked great but... read more

Excellent food and wonderful service. We have enjoyed dinner here a few times and also have taken advantage of their wonderful happy hour in the adjacent bar with both inside and outside seating in the summer. I Nonni has several amenities available to the needs for many collective choices. In addition to the full service and fully Italian dining room,... More

We heard good things about this restaurant and have been there with a large group and also had wine at their bar one evening and enjoyed it. We decided to have dinner there just my husband and I. The service was slow, food was mediocre, and we had to ask for bread. We felt as if we were forgotten at... More

This was an incredible meal. Start to finish. The cacciucco was absolutely amazing. Really good seafood in a spicy tomoto broth with grilled bread. It is a must if you like seafood. We both did the 3-course menu and were both very happy that we started with the cacciucco. The serving sizes for all of our dishes were very generous... More

I like the happy hour and wine selection. The menu is interesting and seasonal. Always something on the menu for my Italian tastes. Good people working here and always an interesting crowd.

Company meal arranged here, but in the separate wine area. The wonderfull Karan was nothing short of perfect and really made the evening special. Food was fantastic, wine even better. Eat here, you won't be disappointed.

Nonni was chosen by the father of the groom to host a rehearsal dinner. There were about 45 of us, including children. The menu selected for us was incredible, with a variety of antipasti, lovely pastas and main courses. Especially memorable was the salmon and asparagus, as well as (for vegetarians) the potato gnocci and fresh mozarella. Service was seamless... More

For $$$ per meal one would think the food would be good and that the chef wouldn't, when finding out he ran out of your ingredient, make his own choice as to the substitute without asking the customer, wouldn't one? Also, wouldn't one expect that for $$$ per meal that one would get enough to eat? When one chooses a... More

I guarantee you will love this place. So many people do not know about it and it is worth the 10 minute drive from downtown St. Paul. It is off the beaten path, but in a very safe location and the food, service and ambiance are amazing! We go here frequently and highly recommend it! If you like Italian food,... More
