Nonnas Cook

I have been here twice. It is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant on Staten Island where a cadre of Nonnas do the cooking. The owner, Jody, came up with the idea when his grandmother died. He recruited a group (12 or so) of grandmothers who were also great cooks to rotate the menu and kitchen... read more

Such a fantastic concept. We heard about Enoteca Maria on NPR and decided we had to make the trek over. The ferry was very easy to catch from Manhattan, and then it was just a short (uphill) walk to EM from the ferry terminal. We had a fantastic dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our "Nonna" was obviously a... More

Friends planned the evening at this new type of restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed it. It offered an interesting concept of a rotating menu and chefs.

This restaurant is small but what flavors come out of that kitchen. This by far is probably one of the most authentic Italian meals I have ever had. We ordered so many items, because we just wanted to try everything. We will go back and back again and again.

I held a birthday party for myself to treat my friends that had honored me throughout the year. I invited 20 people and it did not phase the restaurant a bit. The food was top notch, having visited Italy, it was the best comparable to any I had there and definitely the best I have ever enjoyed on Staten Island.... More

We had our wedding there, it was absolutely the best food and atmosphere. We love the idea of the different grandmas cooking food from the region of Italy they hail from. Each time we have gone back the experience is always new and delicious. We bring our friends and family from out-of-town and they too enjoy the unique idea of... More

The food is outstanding and the service fantastic! Great wine list too. The place is really small and can get crowded fast, please reserve ahead. Parking also can be tricky but this restaurant is absolutely worth and I will definitely go back!!

I have never been in place like this, it a place to keep alive tradition, to keep the memory of the old recipes.. I have... More

First of all, when I made the reservation, I was NOT told it was CASH only. good that when we counted our cash, luckily we had $120.00. Normally we do not carry cash. From NJ, the bridge coast $13 plus 3 hours parking at the nearby parking lot was $8.00. We arrived at 3:30, they open at 3PM. We ordered... More
