“Italian at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Centrally located, it has a cute outside patio and inside it has a wRm ambiance but not stuffy. The waiter we had is from Italy and actually sang happy birthday to me in Italian and gave us a complimentary birthday dessert. My girlfriend and I weren't sure about the wines so we were able to taste several before we picked one. The house salad was excellent as were the entrees, we will definitely go back soon, prices are reasonable for a white table cloth restaurant!

“Fantastico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

We went for a birthday celebration with hesitation since it was our first time there. We were pleasantly surprised by the nice atmosphere and romantic ambiance. There was very little wait time to be seated and they had live saxophone music. The food was excellent as well as the service. Ask for Maximo to be your waiter. He is from Rome and even sang happy birthday in Italian.

“Nice dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Very nice dinner. Food was good. Typical italian dishes - were all very large and good. Nice service and full range of options for wine. The place was a little dark for reading menus - waiter brought out flash lights for us - hmmm.

Fried artichoke appetizer was good and presentation in paper bag was fun.

It does get very crowded, so make sure you make reservations on special nights, holidays, etc. Parking is okay - get there early, as this is a mini mall with 3 large restaurants that fill parking available.

This is definitely a locals favorite - staff greeted most folks by name and knew families, etc. For the rural - urban location - it is prob best in area !

“Impeccable service and high quality food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Read the great reviews and decided to go to celebrate our anniversary. We were already impressed from the outside with patio seating and decor. Greeted right away by Julie who was very friendly and graciously took us to our table in which we were able to choose. Warm ambiance with flair set the mood as well as live entertainment in the bar area, where a lady sang some classics. The other servers were on top of things greeting us and treated us like VIP. My lemon drop was the best I ever had and my husband had red wine. Appetizer of fried calamari, shrimp and artichokes was delectable. My husband opted for one of the Chef's special- top sirloin and I chose one of Julie's favorites- chicken with fresh tomatoes, Marsala, cream and truffle oil. Prepared to perfecto! Everything melted in my mouth and I tried a piece of my husband's steak and it's the best steak I ever had! Julie surprised us with tiramisu, on the house for our anniversary. Happy Anniversary was written in chocolate syrup on the plate. Now that's what I call attention to detail in caring for their customers. We met the owner Luigi at the end of our meal and can see he takes pride in his restaurant, food and customers. Highly highly highly recommend Nonno's for impeccable service and high quality food.

“Great Atmosphere, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

If you're looking for great Italian food in a great setting this is the place for you. Service is attentive without being overbearing and food is classic Italian. Prices are less than comparable restaurants in the area. Order a salad....they deliver it with a chilled fork! That's the kind of service you can expect at Noono's. Music on weekends is welcome without being intrusive or overbearing.
Although open only a few months it has quickly become our favorite Italian eatery in the area. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
