Description: Italian with a French twist!
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We have been visiting Nonna Maria every few months for the past eight years or so and have always enjoyed the great food and warm service.

Before your meal they serve some giardiniera and a generous portion of delicious roasted garlic which tastes great when spread on the warm bread. Their main courses cover pasta to fish and everything in between. We have had the crab cake appetizer, house salad, broccoli rabe (sauteed with lots of garlic), salmon, short ribs, sausage and broccoli rabe, lasagna, eggplant parm, veal saltimbocca and more, and have always been very happy with everything.

As if that wasn't enough, their prix fixe menu is very reasonably priced and contains everything on the a la carte menu (a few items with a surcharge).

We are always greeted warmly by all of the staff (hostess to servers to busboys), many of whom recognize us although we don't visit often. Even when they're full during snowbird season, you never feel rushed or like things are out of control.

Dinner at Nonna Maria was great! The menu was innovative, for instance a salad of endive, feta cheese, apples, walnuts and radishes. Remember those forgotten items, radishes. It worked. Good entrees and fabulous desserts.

Remarkable that such great things come out of such a small kitchen. Food here is excellent - never disappointed with anything. Short ribs are a standout - as good as I've had anywhere - silky-rich with a perfect red wine accent.

Reservations are a must - it's a pretty small place and they fill up every night.

I really shouldn't give this restaurant a review because I want to keep it to ourselves!
Nonna Maria is a small, quiet, family run restaurant that is wonderful. We go there for all special occasions because the service and food are superb and we know we won't be disappointed. They have a great prix-fixe menu with lots of options, reservations are needed. Most of the wait staff have worked there for many years which says something about the owners.
My birthday is coming up so I know where we'll be celebrating it!!

You wouldn't expect this place to be the caliber it is based on its location - but I guess that's what makes something a hidden gem, right?

This Italian/French twist restaurant has amazingly fresh food and great specials! Make sure to get a reservation because your chances of getting a table otherwise are very slim - they're always packed!

They offer a prixe fix menu, making the value unbelievable.

My favorite for dinner? The snapper. For dessert, be sure to get the coffee float!
