Beautiful view but not very memorable food. I had chicken marsala that wasw rather bland and my husband's pasta also rather bland. the salad had too much water floating in it. The antipasto was also bland.

Haven't been back I'm a couple of years due to work and school taking me out of state. Decided to swing by as I was visiting town once again. Had a great steak ribeye special with a glass of wine and a view. What else could you ask for! Overall a great experience for me personally. Staff was friendly and... More

Went to lunch and the place was not busy. We were sat right away on the outside patio and the bus boy brought us water and bread. The view of Lake Flower could be seen from the patio. Sony our server was pleasant and checked on us several times throughout our meals. We started with the calamari which the seasoning... More

the man who seated us was RUDE. The server was below average. The dining room was really loud. The bathroom was filthy and the food was ok

My wife, teenage daughter and I ate dinner here while in the area visiting a prospective college. The restaurant is very clean and tastefully decorated. We all have different tastes in foods and they have a great variety of reasonably priced items on their menu. Our server was very polite, attentive and funny. The wait for our food was a... More

There's lots of potential to this place, large dining room for large parties and a patio with a great view. BUT they aren't ready for that... The servers were quite flustered during the dinner rush which wasn't even a full house and sadly our server didn't even know what an old fashion was... If you advertise a full service bar... More

My son and I selected their "gluten free" pasta (corn, I believe) and it was not great though plentiful. Our fault I suppose for expecting an Italian restaurant to have gf options. Service was indifferent and slow, though they did not seem too busy.

The pasta is so delicious. Lasagna with a meatball is excellent. It's very fresh and authentic food. Portions are big too!

This restaurant has been recommended to us. We went for their brunch buffet, but it left me very disappointed, because it was not at all the kind of food I expected. Half the buffet was different kinds of meat, and they appeared to be more dinner than breakfast dishes. Three out of four of us are vegetarian, so this, needless... More

Nonna Fina is a very nice restaurant. Had a short wait before being seated, had a great view of the lake. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was very good. Reasonable prices.
