I have visited nonna's on several occasions and have hoped that the service would improve however after months of this restaurant being open the service is still not improving.

Went to the Nonna's to try it out. We had been told that the food is brilliant, be it a bit on the high side for price..the place looks rather small from the outside, almost like a cafe. But that was decieving. The meal was supurb, the efficiancy and freindliness of the service was top notch. And the atmosphere was brill. Money well spent..

Being a fan of Malta and Italy when I discovered this restaurant the other day I just had to try it and I'm glad I did.

Firstly the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The building itself is lovely, feels very Mediterranean inside and really adds to the character.

We ordered calzone and pizza which where both very nice, well cooked and a good portion size.
Finished off with lemon cake and homemade tiramisu which were both delicious and well presented. The prices are very reasonable for the quality.

The restaurant has good parking facilities round the back, a lovely outside area and very clean restrooms.

Would I recommend Nonna's? Absolutely! Will definitely return soon. Thank you!

A first visit to this stylish Italian/Maltese restaurant on a very busy Friday evening, where staff were welcoming and friendly, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and had a good time. From the shared starters - some of which seemed to have got trapped in the kitchen - through to the main courses, the food was well-prepared and presented, properly seasoned and very tasty. As the rib-eye steak had all sold out, it was replaced with fillet.
I suppose the only real criticism is that our large-ish party felt a bit squashed, where they'd perhaps squeezed in an extra table for us. However, as we had only made the reservation - strongly recommended by the way! - a few days earlier, enough said. It won't stop me returning, given the overall quality and general ambience.
Coffee, by the way, was marvellous and about the best I can recall tasting.
Given the minor glitches we experienced, I've knocked back the "service" rating, which I'm sure they can improve upon; also, with "outdoor seating", they have quite a large area around two sides of the building but there's no real aspect and it's immediately adjacent to their car park and its access to a busy road junction.

Nonna's restaurant in Woburn Sands is of the rare restaurants in our area that serve veal.... Excellent service with moderate but adequate Mediterrean fare.... Decor is individual and pleasing..., The cosyness of this smallish restaurant gives it an ideal ambiance for a lovely evening with friends... Good value also....This was our second visit and there will be many more in the future...
