“Great service, atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My daughter and I had dined at the Nonna's on South National and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. A good menu selection and attentive, friendly staff combine to make our lunch a very enjoyable experience.
Last month I tested out the downtown location. Once again, they chose a decor and atmosphere conducive to the working crowd, with fast service and competent staff. The food was quite good.
I will definitely return again and again.
I would recommend either restaurant.
Both were enjoyable and fulfilling experiences.

“A trip thru Little Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Always love Nonnas-the atmosphere is homey, live music, food is great, and the service is wonderful. The waitress(Julie) 40's,dark hair(maybe an owner) is superb-not pushy,but right on time. The food is always par-excellence. Eggplant Parmiagnia(sp) is el supremo-the rolls are delish and the Greek-Italian dish with fresh basil leaves(thinking it was spinach-alfredo)-Oh WOW! Great and easy to park closely-some wonderful characters on the street, but were harmless(this time)

“Relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff, genuine and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

One cannot go wrong at Nonna's. I've been coming to both locations for a long time. I recommend the house red wine (and be sure to ask Shawn about its Italian origins), the wonderful garlic/parmesan/olive oil and fresh bread starter. My favorite meal is the eggplant parmesan. The vegetable soup is excellent.

What a refreshing change from cookie-cutter out-of-the-box chain restaurants.

If you love good food and great atmosphere, this is the place to find it in Springfield, Missouri.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My pasta dish was really good, however I was virtually ignored by the wait staff once I got my food. Never even got a drink refill.
