    Service is great,efficient and prompt. The pizza is very good. We shared one as an appetizer. Pasta is home made and delicious. The atmosphere is very comfortable and the space is large so nobody is sitting on top of any one else. The wine list is nicely put together with good value. We had a $50 bottle of super Tuscan which was great..

    Plan on at least $50 per head but not the bad for Mid-town Manhattan. Food was excellent, service was great and one of the more quiet places in Mid-town. Close to the theater district and very roomy. Everything from appetizers to dessert was A+, a definite return visit in the future.

    Further west than the busier restaurants of 7th Ave lies Casa Nonna. it is a spacious, high ceilinged place with a brick oven for their delicious pizzas. the tables are nicely spaced, and the waitpersons young, friendly and professional. they have a great selection of house wines at reasonable prices. i recommend their mini-carafes, just the right amount. the place will not win a Michelin star, but i have yet to have anything less than tasty, and that's good enough for me.

    Service was especially excellent in that the dietary restrictions of one of my party were well understood and catered to most graciously. The food was very good. My wife and I each had two appetizers and a side and it turned out to be an excellent choice.

    I thought it was overpriced for the food that was provided. The price was exorbitant for the scallop dish. I got three scallops and it was about $30 for the entree, which amounts to $10/scallop. . Outrageous. Portions were inadequate. Sorry but I would never recommend this restaurant.

    We dined there on a Friday night and mentioned that we had an 8:00 show. The waiter and kitchen were very accomodating. We had a party of five and all the courses and dishes were delicious except for one pasta dish which was way too al dente. Perhaps the kitchen was rushing for us but we didn't have time to send it back. This was our second time here and we we certainly return.

    Was looking for a nice place in the neighborhood and near my friends hotel and came across a review for Casa Nonna. I was pleasantly surprised as I thought it was a small local restaurant and would be quiet. It was larger and more contemporary than I expected. It was lively and had a great pizza bar. Our waiter knew the menu and gave great guidance choosing our meal. Great time was had by all

    I picked this spot on a whim because of its proximity to Madison Square Garden, and what a terrific find Casa Nonna turned out to be. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious, and, as promised by the manager, we were finished (not rushed) through our meal in perfect time to still see our show at MSG. Try the meatball appetizers, the brown butter ravioli, and any of the steaks on the menu- you won't be disappointed. The restaurant decor is an awesome mix of modern and old-school art, and the space is huge so it's perfect for big groups, but not overwhelming for smaller parties. I will absolutely recommend Casa Nonna to anyone searching for a nice, very reasonably-priced restaurant in an otherwise mediocre food neighborhood.

    Dinner before the Steevie Wonder concert and I was starving. The waiter brought out some bread. It was the best flat bread ever with olive oil,rosemary,and cheese. I would go back just for the bread. The seafood pasta dish was also good.

    Dinner with clients. 7 oclock reservations. Table running a bit late. Went to bar. Was ignored by bar staff for over 10 minutes. Got seated without drink. Over 5 minut until acknowledged by waiter. 10 more minute wait for drink to be served. By around 8:15-8:30 the restaraunt thinned out and we finally got some service. Menu very pleasant. Cheese and Charcuterie plate very modest. Food tasty enough. Overall lacking service staff.

    This is a great place if you are going to the Garden. Large, clubby feel but quiet. Went for lunch and they had a varied menu. Service could not have been better. We were there on the early side so we had their full attention. I always struggle to find a spot that is not a steakhouse near the Garden and this more than fitts the bill.

    Had a group dinner with a group of around 6 people. It's rare to find a spacious setting in NYC that will comfortable fit a big group like that without feeling like people are stepping all over you. Beautiful interior with tufted leather seats, art hung on the walls... the vibe was great. Didn't hurt that the food/wine/service was excellent as well.

    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.
