I've been here several times and tried a lot of the menu. I love the fresh pastas and gnocchi in sage cream sauce. The service has also usually been pretty good; The last time I was here however, they over-salted my gnocchi. I rarely send food back, but it was just inedible.When I told the server he was rude, unhelpful and told me that's just how it is (it's not, I've had it several times). I waited over 15 minutes for them to discuss this (I'm not sure what the debate was). Eventually, they took it back, fixed it and sent a better version back. Not a game changer visit because I will probably go back, but disappointed at the service nevertheless.

The food was ok but felt like it could have used a bit more seasoning (mostly adding garlic). The drink menu went more fruity and didn't seem like it is looked at as something to pair with the food menu. I guess I kind of expected more, going in, because it appeared more authentic from the content I found online.

I definitely got food poisoning from this place. I hate to leave a review like this but I ordered pick up and the food was bad. The carbonara had the most over cooked pasta I’ve ever had in my life. It was like spaghetti noodles from a can. Then the next day my stool was even softer. The garlic cheese bread is just a plain cheese pizza with no sauce. In no way is that considered bread. There was clearly a problem the night I ordered takeout. We picked up our food and ate immediately. Would recommend I avoiding this place forever! Spend the few extra dollars and get properly prepared food!

Quite reasonable tasting calamari in a tomato-based sauce. Friends pasta plates all looked authentic, and they all seemed to enjoy them. Only downside is the lack of atmosphere, a cold environment, but service was just fine.

Service a little slow but always good Italian at reasonable price.

Great service and even better food. Fair prices for the amazing quality of the food. Will definitely be dining again!

It's fine. The pasta I had was above average among the other Italian places I've been but the bread sticks were a bit below average and were oddly served in a bag (perhaps this has changed; my visit was in August). The service was decent. Overall, if you are looking for an Italian place, this will do the job. It may not be memorable later on, but you'll be satisfied.

We've been driving by this place for years. One visit and it's my favorite place. I read the menu and said "Oh my God, if they can do this"...And they did. Start with the extremely patient Tony, the perfect martini and calamari as good as I've paid a lot more for. Then a very delicious mushroom, sausage ravioli for me and a simple yet complex pasta dish for my wife and 15 other things I want to try. Wow. It's a 23 mile drive but who cares. This place is a gem. The 1/2 price wine deals on Monday and Tuesday don't hurt but full price is still worth it. Note the OPEN MONDAY bit.

Great food, fast service, and reasonably priced! We will be coming back again and again!The steak salad was a highlight of the meal, but the pasta dish was also phenomenal. Decent sized servings that 2 people comfortable split.

Amazing authentic Italian cuisine and feel. The service was prompt and friendly. I would definitely recommend to friends.

Yum! I'm a big fan of the food at Nonno's. We've come here a few times, we like it every time, and so do the people who go with us. You are probably safe eating anything on the menu but some things we have tried are: Farfalle Rustico, Carbonara, I think also Penne al Quattro Formaggi. I haven't been too impressed with the inside of the restaurant. It feels a little cramped and not that appealing. But even though the ambience is usually important to me, the food is soo good that it makes up for it. If you're looking for Italian, this place should be high on the list.

Ordered the squid pasta del Nero, it's very delicious! Highly recommend it! Definitely would be back and try other dishes too!

Visited Nonno’s during restaurant week. We ordered off of the regular dinner menu, and enjoyed the food. Staff was friendly. They brought out complimentary bread and olive oil. I thought the fried calamari appetizer was delicious!It took us a while to get seated as we waited by an empty host stand for 5 minutes or so. We had a reservation though so once someone greeted us we had a table right away.

Prompt seating, clean and cute space. Comfy booth with pleasant service and delicious food! Like most of the people leaving reviews, I was very happily surprised by Nonno's. Definitely returning and recommending.
