“Excellent Main Street restaurant”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We have eaten at almost every restaurant on Main Street and frankly, we think they have fallen off over the years.

Our son-in-law suggested Nonni's. We were joined by our friends and had a marvelous dinner for four by the window.

The owner is splendid. Attentive but not overbearing. My friend had the mussels which were served beautifully in a raised tureen. I had the salmon over barley with either spinach or kale (I can't remember!). Salmon was cooked perfectly and the barley was yummy.

The dining room is small but not noisy. We will go back.

“Local spot with great food and service”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

A coworker recently moved to the Pleasanton area so a few of us go together to check out his new home and Nonni's. We started with The Thor assortment of Scandinavian appetizers which was a beautiful assortment of herrings, in house smoked salmon and pate, all of which were delicious. We ordered the Braised Peppered Beef Short Rib, Braised Lamb Shank and the special of the night and while all were great the 3 of us thought the short rib was amazing, so tender and delicious. For dessert, we sampled the chocolate bread pudding and the unique vanilla gelato with olive oil and sea salt - what a great combination. The service was so nice to match the food.

“Don't miss this great place!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

We are longtime locals with lots of choices. Nonni's tops the list for an outstanding bistro lunch accompanied by a good wine list of moderately priced pours by the glass. you will have a worthwhile wait at peak lunch or dinner times because the word is out. We try local restaurants two or three times before recommending one to insure consistency. Nonni's is owner operated and it shows. Ambiance, food and service are first rate. Enjoy!

“Fabulous Sunday Brunch!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

A last minute decision to have a meal while walking around Main Street's Antique show found us at Nonni's. A short wait to accommodate my Mom's wheel chair, was followed by a delicious meal and superb service. I will definitely return as soon as I can!

“Love the Brunch!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Try giving Nonni's a try. I just love the curry chicken salad (x tomatoes) and my honey loves the beef stroganoff and we both enjoy the wine! Nonni is super nice and greets his greats often coming out of the kitchen. Nice addition to our little Main St.
