I've ate at Nona's twice now and both experiences were disasters. Both times my steak was undercooked and had a terrible odor. The bread crumbs were clearly stale and must have been left out for a while. I am just very disappointed with the way things are run there.

The restaurant seems liked a nicer one for the area. The sauces on our dishes were good but the chef undercooked the GF pasta (thankful they offered it) but they were not very knowledgeable. Someone should go to Joe's American Grill in Boston area and take a lesson on the serving of GF food and offer a few GF rolls... More

Being a tourist to the area, my wife spotted this attractive looking restaurant as we were driving past - so we turned around a few minutes later and came back to this location. We were so glad to have had the pleasure of experiencing a meal at Nonna Fina ! Our hostess seated us beside the window, overlooking the beautiful... More

The restaurant is located on Lake Saranac( a 10 minute walk from the Lake Flower Inn). I had the eggplant parm., and my husband had the fish special, which were both delicious! They have a good beer and wine list and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Our waiter was fantastic!!

We had a great lunch sitting outside. The service was good and friendly. The food was excellent. Each of us ordered different panini and they were all rated highly. A good stop.

Nonna Fina's outdoor seating provides a beautiful view of Saranac Lake. The food and location are both excellent. As a result, the places gets busy, and they are somewhat understaffed. We went there 3 times, the first two were great, the last was a disaster on account of an inexperienced server. Christine, the bartender, makes up for it with a... More

We had amazing service while at Nonnas but the food was not that great. Had pasta carbonara and it was drenched in cream sauce with dry, cubes of prosciutto. Will go to Little Italy for pasta next time. :(

Upon recommendation from our motel owners my husband and I had dinner here recently. It left a lot to be desired. My husband ordered a New York strip steak medium rare, the steak came medium well. He said it wasn't bad though not cooked properly. I ordered a Cesar salad with salmon. The salmon was tiny. The salad had wilted... More

My husband and I had dinner here and were a little disappointed with both of our meals. The fresh bread has some seasonings (maybe rosemary and sage, not sure) that I do not care for, but my husband thought was excellent. The salads have nice, fresh romaine lettuce, but again, there was a seasoning used in the salad dressing that... More

2nd time here, food and service still great. I am still amazed that this place was a burger king you can't tell from inside or outside (except for drive thru window). Amazing transformation. Walking distance from the Partridge Cottage House
