“Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

The ambience, the staff and the food are all superb! Carmela and her team are fabulous people, you are always welcomed with open arms and treated like royalty! The food is very good, fresh produce and especially the gamberoni Thermidor has to be the tastiest way of eating lovely big juicy prawns, very good chef! Would recommend this restaurant to everyone, book though as it is very busy!

“Very Happy Hogmanay!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Came here for a meal prior to going to the Edinburgh street party. The staff were brilliantt, very friendly & engaging. The menu was excellent & very good value. The highlight was the food itself - we were all absolutely delighted at how fantastic every course was. Truly outstanding! If you come to Edinburgh, you have to come here.

“Decent + friendly”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Nonna's is undoubtedly a nice place with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. The food is a bit more Scottish than what you'd call traditional Italian and is of decent quality though not really at the levels the quite dear prices imply, I had a risotto which was a little stodgy, other courses very nice however. It does also suffer from that common British restaurant malaise of teeny cramped tables. Nevertheless, it's a popular local eatery.

“Birthday treat”
Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

Nonnas is a great place to go anytime of the year but at Christmas its always that wee bit special and feels like a celebration with an extended family.

“Fantastic family welcome”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

This place is what the neighbourhood has been screaming out for. The welcome from the family owners is always wonderful and the service is attentive and friendly. The food is outstanding and the specials board reflects seasonal produce. The place is small and, when full, is quite noisy but still feels intimate. If you have three courses plus wine it isn't cheap but its worth it for the quality of food and service. Go and eat here - but make sure to book well in advance!
