This spot gives amazing service and yummy food. The best spot around town. The meals arrived quickly and the prices were inexpensive. Will definitely recommend this spot.

Really good flavors for most part. Excellent customer service. If i may suggest a better consistency & flavor with Alfredo sauce. Have gone a few times and different guests have had the same opinion. But other than that the Salmon Risotto is delicious! Hopefully a mushroom risotto might work well too. Very clean! Complimentary sparkling water so fizzy! And did we say great customer service!?!

I have to say "10 STARS"!!!! The atmosphere, food and service was outstanding! My wife had the Gumbo and I had the 2 eggs with pancakes and bacon. I also had a side of the home fries. Oh man! They are one of a kind. The experience is like no other. If you happen to be in Berkeley, and are looking for a bite, THIS IS THE PLACE!! Stella Nonna is #1 in my book

I ordered the fried calamari. I left most of it. It had way too much crust which was too chewy and overwhelmed the over cooked tough calamari. The worst.

This spot on San Pablo Avenue has a great physical set-up, with a cozy indoor bar, lots of tables, great art, parking, and a secluded sweet little patio. The food was good and the portions were large! They have great hours and happy hours are more abound that other local spots. The furnishings, restrooms, and set-up are really to be commended. Ways they could take it up a notch or two? Better service (mostly hipster disinterested staffers chatting amongst themselves) and a few more options for lunch and during the afternoon. Will definitely go back for dinner to see the full menu in action!

Came here for a weekday lunch (not their brunch menu) and was happy with my meal! Not a vegetarian or vegan but I ordered the beyond burger (first time trying beyond meat!) with choice of vegan mozzarella and a side of mixed greens. The patty was laid on top of the fluffiest, butteriest brioche buns I've had in a long time, and they were really good! I also asked for a side of vegan mayo. If you haven't had vegan cheese before, you might be a little thrown off by the slightly rubbery texture (I don't mean this in a bad way at all, that's just how I would describe the cheese). Food here is slightly expensive though (all entrees are $15+).

My husband and I happened upon this wonderful restaurant while driving through Berkeley. What a great experience all around! Delicious food (my salmon was cooked perfectly) and super friendly and attentive service. Our dog loved the patio!

My friend recently introduced me to Stella Nonna, and I'm SO glad she did! The food here is fresh and clean, and served with a smile. Yesterday I had the BEST beet salad I've ever had...and I've had a lot. Theirs has gem lettuce, plentiful avocados and beets, goat cheese and pistachios. I'll be going again and again just for that salad :)

Came here for dinner with the family on a Saturday. Arrived at 5:30pm, so there was no wait. The parking lot is tiny so it was already full, but street parking was easy. The service was very attentive and they even have a little kids book section and crayons/high chairs for the littles. Food was good but nothing amazing. I had the pork carnitas in sauce with a chile relleno (filled with mac n cheese instead of cheese - VERY HEAVY). It came with cornbread, which was yummy. Other items: Kids mac n cheese with broccoli (broccoli undercooked, he wouldnt eat it), and the fried chicken sandwich (fine but not very seasoned, needed more flavor). Would probably come back to try out some other items but not necessarily rushing back.

Dessert was outstanding, dinners satisfying but not perfect. Wine and drinks make for a good time.

Came here for the bottomless mimosas. Walked in and sat at the bar. Place was not too busy. Ordered the bottomless mimosa. Which were all ok. Had a small breakfast. Nothing was really memorable for me. Will continue you my hunt for the best mimosas in the East Bay.
