Ok Italian

My son and I selected their "gluten free" pasta (corn, I believe) and it was not great though plentiful. Our fault I suppose for expecting an Italian restaurant to have gf options. Service was indifferent and slow, though they did not seem too busy.

The pasta is so delicious. Lasagna with a meatball is excellent. It's very fresh and authentic food. Portions are big too!

This restaurant has been recommended to us. We went for their brunch buffet, but it left me very disappointed, because it was not at all the kind of food I expected. Half the buffet was different kinds of meat, and they appeared to be more dinner than breakfast dishes. Three out of four of us are vegetarian, so this, needless... More

Nonna Fina is a very nice restaurant. Had a short wait before being seated, had a great view of the lake. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was very good. Reasonable prices.

It took forever to get a drink but the food was good. Would return to this establishment again when in the area. They need a bartender so that guests are tended to at least to get a drink while waiting for a table.

My son wanted seafood alfredo so we looked it up on the menu and choose Nonna Fina. He was not disappointed. The portion size was fantastic. I got three meals out of my eggplant lasagna and he had two from his alfredo. The waitress was very friendly and was able to chat while serving us - a quality I appreciate... More

We had our dog with us so we chose to do take out and eat at the motel where we were staying-the first night the food was really good though the portions were small-the second night the portions were huge but the quality of the food was blah in comparison. I had the same meal both nights (Eggplant Parm) and... More

Four of us stopped by for an early supper here after finding our favorite Saranac restaurant was closed. We were seated outside where it was sunny but had a lot of traffic noise; this seemed preferable to the dark cavernous interior. One of our party ordered the Antipasto Caprese, which turned out to be the nicest of the dishes despite... More

I wasn't quite sure what rating to give this restaurant but think 3 is about right. I was here for dinner, alone, on a beautiful, hot summer night outside on the deck. Pros: -Lovely setting out on the deck overlooking the lake. -Waitress was very pleasant (but slow...for no apparent reason because there weren't many customers so perhaps the kitchen... More
