This is a suburban strip mall dining establishment that serves above average styleized italian food, cooked by a non-italian chef, with variable attention to service and food. I am not a regular but have hosted small groups here perhaps 8-10 times over the years. It has white tablecloths and plays the godfather movie gonzo style on an endless loop in the dining area, and endless I Love Lucy episodes in the self-mocking replica of a late 1940's italian kitchenette. Expect to pay $60-$75 per person for a full meal with wine, before tax and tip. Their touted specialty is a pear pasta, which is getting a bit old.
On today's visit we were very disappointed and actually left without being served. Arriving on time for a reserved table, Franco, the host, was unable to tell us when one would be ready. We started to discuss among ourselves getting a drink at the bar, but did not have a clear idea of when our reservation would be honored. There were empty tables in the bar and the restaurant. He than asked us to move aside from his podium. The area was busy with after hours bar crowd so we moved away and began talking about the renovated bar and having our office party there next year. But apparently we had not moved far enough and Franco asked us to move farther away, which we did. Then Franco said that was not far enough, please move farther. This was now becoming unnecessarily rude and annoying, if not downright strange, so we asked if he could show us exactly where we should wait. Others waiting in the area began to roll their eyes and say they had just gotten the same treatment. With a flip of the hand, Franco indicated that it would be best to wait outside, but the ladies said they weren't dressed for the cold weather. He said to wait outside anyway. With this, we obliged and left to find another restaurant.
Nonn'a is a place where we have had good meals. However, if you intend to entertain guests, you will want to choose another establishment.
One thing that turned out really nicely for us after this initial setback is that we found ourselves well served at another italian restaurant directly across Sample Road, Sicilian Oven. This was our first visit to a (relatively) new place that we otherwise would not have gone to, and it was a fresh interpretation of well prepared italian american food served family style with a roaring wood oven used to prepare about half the menu, at a reasonable price in a hospitable and lively setting.
