I asked for the chef to make me spaghetti carbonara mmmmmmm. It was so good!! It was the size of a dinner portion so I was able to take some home for later. Yum ! My friend had her favorite and was very happy. She...More

We've driven by here a million times and never thought much of trying it... but now we're hooked! Each table gets delicious warm bread and olive oil (for dipping purposes). The drinks are very good - would definitely recommend the mojitos. Our meals were all...More

First time here and found Nonno's to be a bit rough around the edges, but the food was great. The server seemed like it was his first day on the job and the runner crawled through the booth to deliver the entrees. The bar area...More

This place is wonderful. I have eaten here twice in the past year and couldn't be more pleased. The chicken marsala is unbelievable for $15. We had a wonderful Malbec for $22. By far the best Italian restaurant in Madison. Great service. Check it out,...More

Highlight of the dinner was the excellent warm bread basket. And than precipitously downhill from there. Not nearly enough oil and balsamic vinegar for the bread. Soggy salads with horrid pickled mushrooms. Fettuccine Alfredo was gluey, though fettuccine perfectly done. No offer of fresh ground...More

OK, this was previously a Mexican restaurant. I know, but a little bit of effort to hide the view of the parking lot and busy street beyond would go a looong way. That's the bad part, and really, that's it. The food is good, hearty,...More

Nonno's is low key, informal but attentive to its customers. The food is good and, despite a small bar festooned with TVs, relatively quiet. There is ample parking. The menu includes dishes using pasta made on the premises, which we liked.

The food was flavorful but it was not really anything different than the quality at numerous other Italian places in Madison. Appetizer was tasty. Drinks we're also just ok. My wife's drink was super strong whereas my drink tasted like a soda. Service was decent....More

We've driven by a few times and wanted to check it out - my family is Italian and I'm used to authentic Italian made from scratch (in fact, I grew up calling my grandfather Nonno which is part of what caught my eye) and so...More
