“Yummy Italian Food”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

The food was delicious, the service excellent, and the atmosphere friendly. The only down side was the noise level due to the acoustics of the building. It was a little difficult to have a relaxed conversation during their busy dinner hours.

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I loved Nonna's food. Superior lasagne, great service, tasted homeade. A bit of a wait but prices are reasonable and servings are large. I'll be back.

“More variety than the usual Italian fare”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

I have been very impressed with every meal I've had at Nonna's. I love that not all the entrees are just pasta with meat - there are other interesting things to try, all of which have been delicious so far. I have only been to the South National location. Be sure and make a reservation if it's a weekend; otherwise you may have a long wait time.

“Mediocre Italian Food”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

This place was awful. My mother is Italian and this food was far from authentic. My son had spaghetti and meatballs and he would not even eat the meatball. I tried it and it tasted like dog food. The stuck us in the upstairs in a very cramped location that was hot and noisy. Will not return. Food is pricey.
