Good Italian Food

I've been here several times for lunch on the way to take clients to catch a flight. The place has a nice relax atmosphere, the food is very good and the wine list is acceptable. My favorite dish is the Osobuco, but you may need a nap afterwards. Maybe in the plane.

I am a frequent patron of Il Nonno. Tonight I brought some friends who were visiting the island with me. Each and every one of them were thrilled with the quality of the food.

I am a local and faithful client of Il Nonno. I started going about 5 years ago and never had a plate I didn't like. My favorite dish is Gnocchi with white Gorgonzola cheese. If you ask for a little prosciutto the dish is even better. Tiramisu is great too. Ambiance is casual elegant. LOVE IT!

Il Nonno is a Classic in Isla Verde that had gone a bit into a slump. But I'm so glad is back and better than ever! It had been almost 2 years since my last time here. New owners and staff have given the place a boost in a smart way: Kept the great dishes that made it famous and... More

Do not come here if you are actually Italian, you will be sorely disappointed. The food was bland, overpriced, and the ambiance was dated.
