They know my order ever time I go now. I'd order and have tried almost everything on the menu and would be delighted and excited to eat any of it. Family run, and they've even created dishes for my friends with special dietary needs. Stop in, the risotto is amazing and it's not your typical Italian restaurant.

I'm in town for a bridal shower and figured I should eat before heading home. I saw Nonno's pop up on nearby restaurants. I will definitely take the 2 hour drive to come back. I was seated right away, all my questions were answered attentively and the food was SO tasty! The restaurant was so clean as well! Will definitely be back!

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The Mexican place that used to be in this location was subpar at best, so when an Italian place went into the same location I never gave it a second thought. Boy, was I wrong! The furnishings aren't overly fancy, but the Italian food is excellent and service is very good! Prices are very reasonable too.

The food was delicious and the service was good. They brought bread to our table in a paper bag, which I thought was odd, but it was delicious and so was their oil/vinegar. Reasonably priced as well. We will be stopping by again should we be in the Madison area. I recommend this place.

Service was pretty inattentive, but quality of food was good. Pasta was al dente, flavorful. Would go to again.

This restaurant totally floored me. We went here on a whim for a friend's birthday and had Mateo as our waiter. He was funny as hell, timely and attentive, and very informative on menu items. The food was terrific and the atmosphere was delightful. 10/10 highly recommend and will visit again. Cheers!

Shout out to Tony, a great waiter for our first lunch at Nonno's! The lasagna, bread, and cannolis were so yummy!

Ugh, I usually love this place but I went there with my boyfriend for a date night dinner after raving about the lasagna but our server was the rudest I've ever had. He wasn't attentive at all, super rude, dismissive and just a big asshole all around. All my boyfriend did was ask for his mojito to be remade because it tasted like a mouthful of mint, nothing else. You could see just mint in the drink and it looked like they put an entire bundle in it and the server just belittled him for it. He has an eyebrow piercing for future reference, don't be surprised if he's a total dick to you.

The best Italian food I have had in Madison. They could charge double what they do for their food, and I would still go there. The food was fresh and delicious. I truly wish I had been here before. Amazing Food!

Great service. Nice selection of wine, beer, and alcoholic beverages. Salad was made with fresh veggies. Bread was served warm and tasted great with their olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Entrees were amazing. This is real, authentic Italian food made from scratch. Will make this a regular spot.

Good sized restaurant, ample free parking available as it's located in a outdoor shopping plaza. Salads, sandwiches, pizzas, pasta and an assortment of appetizers, desserts and wine choices for lunch or dinner. Food is fresh and delicious. Their breads are especially tasty. Service is fast and friendly. Value is very good.

We started with the Caprese Classica and the tomatoes were marinated perfectly. For dinner I ordered the Carbonara and my fiance ordered Capellini alla checca, both were perfectly cooked and generously portioned. They also have a very nice wine list with some local varieties. This is officially our favorite Italian place in town and we cannot wait to come back!!

I ordered two pastas - GNOCCHI ALLA CREMA DI SALVIA & FETTUCCINE ALFREDO and dessert - CANNOLI for dinner. The fettuccine Alfredo was not the best. It should have more creamy sauce. Gnocchi pasta was really good favors. I enjoyed it every minute. I will definitely order it again. Cannoli was not the best, too, because it was not full fill in.
