    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.

    I work in the neighborhood and Casa Nonna is one of my go to spots. Everything from the delicious hot rosemary bread to the dessert is amazing. Great cocktails as well!! The manager Greg is very hospitable and welcoming. Staff is friendly and on top of service. Highly recommend. Something for everyone on menu.

    I just learned of this restaurant. What drew me was the glutten free menu. I have a son with Crohn's and this was such a great date night with him. The glutten free options were delicious. That's not easy to find when you dine out..

    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!

    I ate here with my fiance during restaurant week. We were seated at one of two tables in a U-shaped booth and there was only about 18 inches separating us from another party. It was a bit awkward because it felt like the booth should have been reserved for one large party rather than two small ones. Overall, the food was fine, but not good enough to make us want to go back (the grilled sirloin was delicious, however). The service left something to be desired. Our waitress clearly wanted to be elsewhere, was very terse, and dressed sloppily. Our drinks (which were expensive relative to NYC) also took 25 minutes to arrive. All in all, the food was fine, atmosphere somewhat poor, and there are better places to spend your money.

    Went there for dinner during restaurant week to celebrate a friend's birthday. Hostess was very sweet and showed us to our table right away even though another person was running late (other restaurants make you wait at the bar until everyone's there). We weren't rushed and the staff was very attentive and professional. Food portion was rather small but AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS and filling!! Definitely worth it and would return again.

    We went for dinner during restaurant week and had a great meal. Salads were flavorful; steak was tender with delicious sauce and potato and veggie sides were great. We asked that no truffle oil be included as it was on the menu and we were readily accommodated. The tiramisu dessert was a large portion and very good. All in, a great dinner. Excellent, attentive service and we could actually hear one another speak. We were not rushed out and had a very enjoyable evening. Thank you Casa Nonna.

    I found this place while a was looking for a good spot in midtown to have a nice lunch with my hubby. Food is really good, well prepared, fresh ingredients and super tasty. The service was good and our waiter was very nice to us. Food came after 20min from our order i have to say it was very busy, that's always good, but if you are in a rush is not the right place. Kind of pricy, San Pellegrino bottle 7$ and Pastas are not less than 21$ each, but it is definitely in the range of NYC.. and considering that is serving you good food it is more than acceptable. I'll go back for sure!

    Casa Nonna is conveniently located near the theater district so it was a great choice for lunch before a mid-week Broadway matinee. Pasta and paninis were very good. Tiramisu was close to homemade as opposed to what most restaurants serve. Nice and comfortable decor with attentive service. I would definitely dine there again and consider it for dinner as well.

    The restaurant is very attractive and conducive to couples or groups. We could of made a meal out of the bread which was more like a white pizza with parmigiana and a touch of ricotta. Absolutely delicious. I had the red snapper special which was very well prepared. The skin was nice and crispy and the fish was flavorful. The only reason I gave the restaurant 4 instead of 5 stars was because the side dish of chopped olives was too salty and I didn't think it really went with the dish. However the roasted fennel, tomatoes and pepper was delicious. I also did not care for the dessert, although my friends liked both the chocolate cake and tiramisu. I would definitely go back.

    Casa Nonna, on 38th Street, between 8th and 9th, was not how I imagined an Italian grandma’s house. The restaurant was huge, with comfortable booths, space between the booths, a high ceiling and a musical mix. A charming hostess greeted us, the service was pleasant and efficient. The 3-course lunch menu offered variety and flavor, but too much cream. I loved the Zuppa di Mais (warm corn soup). The flavor was subtle but so tasty. The Filetto di Maiale alla Griglia (grilled pork tenderloin) was a bit tough, and there wasn’t lots of it. The tiramisu (shaved chocolate with espresso crema) ended the meal with my favorite, chocolate. One day I must try my friend’s dessert, prosecco granita (summer melon, basil, lemon curd). Delizioso.

    Casa Nonna has become our first choice for a monthly get together. The food is always excellent as is the service. The pasta is never overcooked, everything arrives at the same time and the presentation is lovely. Its location near Penn Station and Port Authority is very convenient. The only negative is that the tables are close together and you can easily become part of someone else's conversation. Of course sometimes that can actually be a positive.

    I enjoy Italian food which is lucky since that is my culture and it has been prepared for me my entire life. Casa Nona does not offer the standards in a standard way, which is comforting and brilliant. They offer things you think you know ... like meatballs, but you find when they arrive they are truly a signature dish. Not Grandmas, in some ways much better, because you don't take them for granted. In Italy, I've had many delicious fish dishes. Casa Nona brings the Italian coastline to their restaurant. My guest had Branino that was radient. The restaurant is very spacious but feels intimate. There is a beautiful banquet room right on the main floor. The bar is off the entrance and the dining guests are not exposed to bar talk.

    Went here for Restaurant Week dinner. I had the salmon crudo, the sirloin entree and the tiramisu. All were very good. The focaccia was tasty, as was the quinoa side dish. Service was friendly but slow, although some people would appreciate not feeling rushed thru the meal. The place was nice and spacious. It's a pleasant surprise in an area with not a lot of good dining choices.

    Had a wonderful night out with my friends. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant and thought the food selection was great. Aside from being delicious the food was reasonable priced. We sat at a large round table which had a lazy Susan and that made it easy to share our plates with each other. Our waitress was friendly and very helpful.

    Went to Casa Nonna during restaurant week for a coworkers birthday. Our waitress seemed annoyed to have to deal with our table of 9, and after she took our order we didn't see her again until she dropped off the dessert menu. She never came over to ask how out meal was, never even apologized that we waited almost an hour for our entrees. No one even asked whose birthday it was so she never got a candle or anything.

    The food was not overly creative but enough to satisfy the looks and taste. My friend's pork was done just right, medium and my fish was crispy outside and melty inside, really perfect. Tiramisu was not too sweet, just right with chocolate bitterness with rich flavor. There were several servers checking how things were, pouring more water in glasses, very attentive and friendly. Liked the roomy entrance area and between tables, fit for group lunch. Enough light to enjoy the food, the decoration on walls and cabinets, very relaxing atomosphere.
