We read other reviews from trip advisor and decided to try this restaurant on the day we were leaving for a lunch. The food was great. Their sauce was just like home.

“Pleasant Dinner and Very Good Service”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Nonna's Trattoria is a casual restaurant that offers above average dining. The atmosphere is reminiscent of a neighborhood place in "the neighborhood" of, say, South Philly or NYC. But the fact is the food is good and if you like Italian you cannot go wrong here.

I had manicotti that was so light that I could not believe it. Rather than the standard tubular pasta, this was enclosed in a lovely homemade crepe. The red sauce was excellent, and I don't mind saying that I am somewhat of an expert of red sauce, having conducted "research" since 1975. This is was top notch!

My accompanying salad was a bit flimsy with the standard lettuce, grape tomatoes, and a couple of red onion rings. But, the bread was outstanding. I believe that it is provided by their "sister restaurant" that does the baking.

My wife had a dinner-size salad featuring nice portions of grilled chicken and a much wider range of greens. Unfortunately, the greens weren't quite as crisp as is preferred. The only real snag was a bitter tomato that managed to sneak in. The dressing was served on the side in a more than generous amount. I was advised that the chicken was excellent.

Several beers were on draft, including a local and Pironi. The wine list was good, although we stayed with the brew rather than the vine.

Service was prompt and super-friendly. The dining room is old-fashioned, in a nice way, and there is a patio dining area along with tables on the side walk.

On the evening we were there (a Wednesday, fairly early about 6:00pm) the clientele appeared to be largely tourists, casual, but in good moods. I understand that the locals like this place, too.

So, would we return? Yes! There are several more items on the menu that require further investigation, and I have to study that red sauce.
