I’ve had both Brunch and Dinner here. Most recently brunch. 4 of us all of whom were very happy with our selections. My only issue is serving $4+ coffee as regular coffee. Described as “pour over” I knew that was gonna cost me... Dog friendly, heated patio most appreciated!! My dog’s order of bacon was reasonably priced as it was 4 large, thick slices for around $5.

great food, friendly staff, and very accommodating with any dietary issues oh and a nice place to meet for drinks


Pretty freaking awesome. its like grown up style nutritious lunchable on crack with a grown up side and juice and cookie AND OMG getting hungry just writing the review STELLA NONNA two thumps up, id put more but only have two ha. I wish they would help change the way schools catered lunch teach the school how to properly feed children...


When my first pick of restaurants proved to offer very few vegetarian options, i lucked out by finding this enjoyable establishment, and with patio accommodations that afforded my dog a seat under the table. It was so good that my husband and I spent the next day talking about when we would return.. We started off the meal with a blueberry Seabreeze and while I am not a fan of gin per se, it was a great start to our dining experience. My husband had the mushroom pasta similar to a pappardelle and I choose the pesto spaghetti. Both were delicious. For desert we shared a caramel almond torte and wow, I would go back just for that. Besides the enjoyable patio and the great food, Rosalyn did a wonderful job waiting on us to give a perfect trifecta dining experience. This place really is a star!. . BTW: On street parking was so easy and convenient


Soroptimist Int'l of Oakland had their annual community awards dinner there and the food was served buffet style for us. Everything was DELICIOUS! Next time I'm in the area I'll eat there again!

When you walk up and they open the door for you immediately feel that something special is about to happen. I ordered the fried chicken and my husband ordered the salmon pasta. Now this is a test because I can fry the hell out of some chicken and my husband makes a smoked salmon to die for. We were both thrilled with our meals. Oh and Mitch's cornbread, shoot me and slap your momma good. I had the habanero margarita which was excellent. Mitch is in charge of desserts also and his black and white cake �� deserves a standing ovation. Stella was recommended by our co-worker and this was our second time, first time was happy hour. You owe it to yourself to dine at Stella Nonna, it's our new happy place.

Once again, Stella Nonna does not disappoint. I've been using them for 10 years - food is always on time which is extremely important for corporate catering. Equally important is how tasty the food is -- mac and cheese, sandwiches, cookies, cakes and esp their pesto pasta salad are all outstanding. Thank you, Sara and team for always being able to accommodate last minute orders and providing great food.


Went here with company, Chelsey is the perfect waitress. Gumbo one of the best I have had. 20 oz Sonoma Pils very ample drought beer. Antonio's salad with shrimp was done to perfection. Risotto w salmon was great

Catered office luncheons a couple of times and the service and food was stellar!


While this restaurant is on San Palo Avenue, one of the main streets in Berkeley, it is set back from the street with its own tiny parking lot. I loved the food. My husband thought it was too expensive for what we got. The food is more eclectic than you might expect from an Italian name, and that's a plus for me, in case I'm in the mood for something besides the traditional pastas.


As with most restaurants in Berkeley, they are very good or they do not survive. Cuisine is basically Italian with a selection of unusual dishes. Complementary dinner puffs are excellent, and all of the 5 different selections very good. Service excellent. Prices for main are about $18.00. Everything is Alla carte. So this is not an in expensive.The bottomless wine offering was unique but the Pino Grigio was very insipid. (not flavorful)I would go back

My job ordered food for our orientation and I had the Armando's Saturday Special. It was so so so so good.


Something for everyone in a laid back atmosphere describes SN for dinner. Although it seems to be a popular brunch spot too, we had a dinner everyone, 2 adults and 2- 20 somethings, -was happy with from the well made drinks on. The Korean fried chicken is worth the visit alone, great moist spice, tender insides and not rock hard crispy like some. Watermelon and feta salad perfect for a warm evening. Two burgers, the huge fried chicken platter with potato salad and corn man dish along with the ground lamb, w/ homemade ricotta over penne. The place is quaint and personal with enough variation in both drinks and dishes to fit most progressive, eclectic California tastes, with asian, american and mexican dishes to choose from along with many salads. There is a outdoor seating area and a dining area which opens to the outdoors too. Service was very friendly, and the bar a bit slow on the out set,but we were never left wanting. It's a solid establishment in which most people will be very satisfied to dine.
