Nothing to get excited about. There's better pasta in the neighborhood. Ordered fish -- it was a giant portion, slathered in too much salt, overcooked, and sat on a bed of vegetables that lacked ant hint of their inherent flavor after being grilled away to blandness. My partner ordered pasta. The browned butter was quite tasty. The pasta noodles themselves were good. But the accompanying sausage was tough and bland. the arugula and parsnip salad was coated in a heavy dressing and salt. Skipped dessert. Had a Tuscany red that was nice. Overall.... Just meh. Food not really that good. Just plates of salt and no real other flavors going on. And not worth that price point considering the other restaurants in the area.

The food was amazing it literally melted in our mouths. The bartender made our long island very enjoyable it was strong but with a great taste. The atmosphere was perfect for our Date Night we definitely will be returning

The food was really good. Wine is expensive but not more than other restaurants.
The music was too loud for no reason.

We had a reeeally bad experience at La Nonna from beginning to end. I made a 7:30pm reservation for 11 people 6 weeks in advance to celebrate my mom & dad's birthdays with family flying in from out of town. When we arrived we were told the table for us wasn't ready as the party seated there was taking longer than expected. We had to stand there for 30 mins, with 4 very hungry young children, waiting for a different set of tables to be ready for us and were seated about 8pm. Strike 1. I immediately ordered 2 pizzas so we could get some food in the kids asap and those came quite quickly thank god, because we then had to wait for at least 30 mins for the 4 PASTA dishes we ordered to come...it was ridiculous. No cheese was offered for the pastas, or drink orders retaken. Food was mediocre. I had called in advance to give a heads up that we would be celebrating two birthdays and that we'd want celebration desserts to come out. Towards the end of the pasta course I sought out someone on the waitstaff to tell them the specific desserts to come out with sparklers in them, and at the same time we asked for the check. The kids were fading fast and we were dying to get out of there. Then ensued another long wait, where major regret set in about doing a dessert course at all there! The two desserts finally came after my husband had a firm word with our waiter, but then we still had another long wait for the check. Strike 5? I've lost count. Unfortunately for us gratuity was already included on the check, so we couldn't even tip appropriately for the crap experience. I guess with a large gratuity guaranteed, there wasn't the incentive to provide good service. I live across the street, but despite the convenience and the fact that Italian is our favorite food, we will absolutely NEVER dine at La Nonna again. I was embarrassed that I had selected this restaurant for such a big celebration with my whole family that happens only once or twice a year.

Extra 3% to pay by credit card. Lame! They claim it’s because of a NY law, implying that the are compelled to, actually that’s not true, it was a NY Supreme Court ruling that simply allows them to do so. Stupid reasoning as I spent significantly less because I had to pay in cash. Maybe they are rigging their taxes so need cash!

It was my girlfriends birthday. Although a few people were late; the staff were still accommodating and seated us accordingly. True food was well beyond expectation. The waiters took a while to get our orders but all together the restaurant is amazing. Everyone appeared to be friendly and informative. I would definitely recommend this establishment.

We had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated, despite having a reservation. Both the bartender and server forgot our drinks. I understand mishaps happen, but the management's lack of damage control is what disappointed us most. We received an apology and were briefly checked in on later on in the evening, but that wasn't enough, in our opinion. Our reservation was for 8:30, and we weren't served our meals until 9:40. All in all, I would not recommend.

the service was amazing. everyone, from the hostess to the waiter, was very attentive. the food was ok and honestly not sure why this place is getting great reviews with the quality of food. i also had a chianti and it was ok at best. the place itself was big and nice but v commercial and not as unique as i would like. leaving a 4 star review because the saving grace is the service staff n

Great food and great atmosphere.
Indoors the noise was moderate but
we dined outdoors and it was surprisingly,
quieter than expected for a Saturday night,
even with cars going past us. Can't say enough
about the food. Would truly recommend.

Not bad… just not good. The service was inexpert, with the server struggling to read a very lengthy list of specials, none of which had a price. It was a time-consuming and largely pointless exercise, as conversation ground to a halt so we could sit through a barely intelligible monologue of things we had no intention of ordering. The place itself has a fake “traditional” decor completely unrelated to the building it’s in, so it just seems like a restaurant in a mall. And that’s what this is, at heart: the menu was typical American-Italian, and presentation dated: I had breaded eggplant, and it came piled into a little tower with a sprig or two of arugula, with a lattice of a sweet syrupy balsamic over it. It’s the kind of thing restaurants do to suggest they are fancy while serving very ordinary food. A margarita pizza came covered in cheese - probably mozzarella but certainly not buffala - and cut into bar-sized bites. The base was thin, but chewy. Wine is ordered from an iPad which just comes across as a gimmick: it was OK, but they sell the cheapest Castelo Banfi at quite the mark-up. All in all this is a mediocre restaurant masquerading as something better. It’s not. This is the kind of place which is unfortunately typical of a certain kind of Italian American restaurant, and that’s fine if that’s what you want, perhaps a certain kind of comfort food. It just isn’t what I thought it would be - the reviews are generally good. It’s not that it’s bad - it’s not. We ate all our food, and drank the wine, and enjoyed the company. But there’s not much point in living in a place like Brooklyn and going to a restaurant that serves from a menu better suited to a suburban chain, but charges New York prices for it, with service to match. It’s just really disappointing.

The place is beautiful but the food and service really let it down. We got appetizers and the server told us the small plates were coming and that took what felt like half and hour. The food is pretty average. We’ve had better overall.

Service was incredibly slow out of the kitchen. Took an hour after our appetizer to receive our entrée. Other tables experience the same thing we noticed. Osso Buco was too salty and tough while the Chilean sea bass was a little too saucy. We were asked about 8 to 10 times how everything was. I am sure some corporate overlord instructs waitresses and managers to ask how our dining experience was but it’s a little too much — especially when the experience wasn’t stellar. Second time there, I probably will not return

Been here quite a few times, always great service and great meal. This time service only. Don't know if they are different owners or changed the Chef but my chicken parm was a deep fried patty and the eggplant taste like processed food. This was a big change from our previous visits. I will try again, hoping it was just an off night. I will say top notch Bartender, sorry I didn't get his name.

Had a date night with my girlfriend and it was a great experience thanks to the restaurant. We have arrive a few minutes late and our seats wasn’t ready yet. We waited at the bar and ask for drinks. The bartender made nice drinks for us and it was good. We was able to take out drinks to our reserve talking. The music was at a nice volume where I can exchange words with my date. We order our appetizer, entree and desserts and all three meals was delicious with different distinct taste. My date and I even traded dishes just to taste our plates. The service was great all around. I recommend the spot for any occasion for the scenery and location.

If you are a mature single, this is a great place to impress a date. Combination of good food, enough privacy between tables to talk, noise level is lively but manageable and the wait staff is considerate and reasonably attentive. The surrounding area also provides a pleasing post dinner promenade by the river. Very romantic as a package.

The food was amazing, great wine selection. The time between the courses was good. The place is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Great ambiance.
My only complaint was our server, not the best experience.
He barely explained the menu or talk with us. Even asked if we had any allergies or stuff. He was polishing silverware or talking with another tables instead. I hope you read this message and do something with the staff. I don’t expect to build a relationship with the waiter. But you have to be more aware if we need something. At some point we barely have water.
Great experience overall, except for our waiter.
