    Casa Nonna is a great place to unwind with a great glass of pinot grigio and pasta after a hectic work week. Although it is a large restaurant, the large round tables against the wall give it a small restaurant cozy feeling, and it is now my favorite NYC Italian restaurant. KJ, Astoria

    We have been to Casa Nonna 5 times in 4 weeks as it is close to our hotel. We have learnt that our first excellent experience was simply good luck. On subsequent visits we have had exceptionally slow service, been served cold pizza, burnt pizza and waited for 40 minutes for drinks. we won't bother coming back as there are too many places in the neighbourhood serving much better (and consistent) food. Its a shame as this is less than 3 mins from our hotel and we are staying in NYC for nearly 2 months.

    I've eaten here twice, and highly recommend it for delicious food and a very pleasant and friendly staff. The focaccia they give every table as a pre-appetizer is some of the most addictive bread I've ever eaten. The taste of the food is authentically Italian, but presented in a modern, artisanal way. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. I look forward to returning.

    Looking for a restaurant near Madison Square Garden, I found Casa Nonna to be just right. Well staffed, brisk service, accommodating front-of-house managers. The food is creative and well prepared and the wine list has nice choices that are quite reasonable by NYC standards. We received very helpful menu guidance from our server and all the staff pitched in from time to time satisfying our modest but important requests during the meal. Our only knock was that an assistant pulled my wife's appetizer before she quite had finished it, when the main courses arrived more quickly than anticipated. Desserts were nicely prepped and finished with a creative touch. Overall, Casa Nonna contributed to a great NY experience.

    For two tourists from California, eating at Casa Nonna turned into a delightful dining experience. The room is spacious and provides a relaxed atmosphere. The service was very attentive and our waiter was helpful in choosing our dishes. The food was inventive and well prepared and goes way beyond the typical "pasta and red sauce" bill of fare. A small kvetch was the loud music and crowd noise leaking in from the bar, which adjoined our table. Not a big deal, really.

    Casa Nonna in Midtown Manhatten won't disappoint. The flavorful meal began with delicious flatbread that is quite filling and is "on the house." Our Antipasti were excellent: Peperone Dolce (fresh buffalo mozzerella with marinated sweet peppers) and Caesar salad. Our main dishes were delicious: Pansotti di Zucca (butternut squash ravioli with poppyseeds, brown butter, sage, and walnut pesto) and the fresh fish from the market. We were too full for any dessert. The manager and waiter were both very attentive and eager to please. The dining room has beautiful wooden walls and furniture, lovely art, and restaurant themed decorations throughout, such as a collection of copper pots and assorted cooking oil containers. The bar is separate.

    We were here on a Monday evening at the suggestion of our hotel concierge. We were delighted to find all bottles of wine to be half price on Monday evening. We had calamari to start which was delicious, not chewy and lightly battered. It was a huge portion though, so we were glad we shared. We both had pizza one Parma and one Bosco. They took quite a while to arrive, but as we were enjoying a nice La Vigne Cabernet and people watching this wasn't a big problem for us. The kitchen is semi open and the pizza oven has a bar alongside with seats so you can watch the activities. On the first night of a six week stay in NYC I'm glad we found this early on and we will definitely be back to try the home made pastas.

    Started with a drink at the bar. There was an unfamiliar gin- bartender gave a gracious taste, then made a great drink with it. Sent my drink to table with NO HASSLE. Split a salad- again, no hassle. Tasty comp bread stuffed with cheese- was heavenly. I had lamb- slightly overdone (for me- I like very rare). Waiter brought a ramekin of flake salt to accompany. Friend had gnocchi- tender and tasty. A little slow getting check, but altogether a very nice visit.

    I was looking for a place to meet up with some friends for lunch in midtown west area and first found this on the open table website, but was hesitant until another friend confirmed this as a "cute" place for lunch. I'm glad we chose this place: Started with a delicious carrot soup of the day - outstanding! followed with a grilled Panini sandwich that was just right. All other guests (3) were very satisfied with their choices, the wait staff and the ambiance. We will definitely return.

    We were looking for a restaurant close to Penn station and Casa Nonna was a perfect fit. The tables are spaced far enough apart that you can have a conversation and not have to shout. Our waiter was excellent. he asked if we were going to a show, which we weren't so we would prefer not to be rushed. And we were not. They extended restaurant so we had the prixe fixed, $38 for 3 courses and it was perfect portions. We had salad to start , red snapper that was delicious and sliced steak cooked exactly how it was ordered. We had home made Tirramisu that was okay. I would definitely go back.

    As an out of town group of ladies staying in Midtown, Casa Nonna's was a great choice for Italian food. The ambiance could be considered casual romantic. The space was large and for a late Friday night, it wasn't too packed. Food tasted very fresh and pricing was very reasonable!
