Outstanding food 95% of the time

Nonna Emilia's is a quaint little Italian restaurant that has been around for decades now. 95% of the time, their food is incredible. On rare occasions, something goes awry in the kitchen and it's just average. The service is the same; usually quite good, but every once in a while, watch out for... read more

As others have noted, the portions here are enormous. We ordered two entrées and each of them could easily have served four people. In fact, when the waiter brought the food, he also brought take-home containers with him because he knew that we would not be able to finish it. That, in itself, is a red flag for me because...

We have driven by this restaurant numerous times and the place is always surrounded by cars. We finally stopped. A busy Saturday night, 25 minute wait is to be expected. My wife ordered the cannelloni, I ordered the lasagna on the servers recommendation. A small antipasti plate comprised of a few vegetables salami, cheese and pepperoni--it was tasty. Salads arrived... More

Really good food. I enjoy things off their menu. But last couple times I've been there (only been there 3 different occasions) I received sub-par service from the staff. I waited for my plate for 45 minutes on Thursday night but the waitress couldn't give me the time of day.

I will NEVER go back! I attempted to have dinner at Nonna Emilia's Italian restaurant and ordered a pasta dish that I couldn't even manage to take a second bite of. Apparently if you send a dish back the chef charges you a return fee of $4.95. The waitress explained that it wasn't her call. The restaurant charges that because... More

The restaurant is rather eclectic in appearance but the food is the reason for the visit anyway. Pizza is the Thick crust kind. Calzone can be split with 2 salads for a great evening out with your sweetheart. Lasagna is thick and googey good! There is the soy product for the cheese pizza requests. Music has been the accordion minstrel... More

My wife and I ate dinner here recently, and had a really good experience. The food is very good, my only observation is either a plus or a minus, and that is the portions are huge! you will be going home with leftovers, or, unless you are a competitive eater, very full. We found the ambiance to be old-time Italian,... More

To be honest I haven't been there in Years, but It's been there so long, I doubt it's changed much. the Food is awesome.. If you are really hungry go to the lunch buffet's Tues-Fri. everything on the menu is great IMO.. Warning this place has been around a LONG time so the décor is old. If you want FLASH... More

Love this restaurant! One time the owner Steve suggested we try the fettuccine Alfredo but with both sauces. Hooked! Their chicken cacciatore is unbeatable. Mix with some of their chianti and it is the best. Always a treat to eat here!
