Way too salty! Would go back but I will not because of how much salt they use. The chef should stop smoking so he can taste.
Amazing food and service. Can’t wait to return
Best Italian food I’ve had in the country- and I travel a lot!! I stop here every time I’m in the city.
A real gem, the pasta was delicious and the ambiance was something I did not expect to find in this part of Philly.
We had a very nice meal. It is hard to choose what to order because everything described sounds delicious. And our neighbors' food looked excellent, too. I am a huge fan of eggplant part, so even though it was only available as an appetizer, I chose that, a caesar salad and dessert. There was way more breading than veggie, so was disappointed. The salad was interesting. The croutons are friend squares of polenta- -fabulous- - and there is broccollini in the salad, which was a fun surprise. The dressing was bland, though. Needed more garlic, anchovies, or at least, salt. My friend ordered pasta and meatballs. A huge portion and a a good sauce. It was a rich tomato sauce and the meatballs are made with B,V, and P. A good ratio because you can really taste all three. It was really good. Spectacular? No. But really good grandma kitchen hearty food. You feel pretty healthy with a stick to your rib meal from here. No complaints about the service. The hostess was especially friendly and welcoming.
There for my wife's birthday. Best meatballs I've ever had. Very friendly staff.
I love everything about this place. Inside is nice and cozy, courtyard is fantastic, too. Feels authentic, nothing trendy..yay.
(Indoors is quieter than their courtyard.)
Excellent option for lunch in east of Broad street in center city. Authentic Italian food.
I have wanted to dine at Little Nonna's for several years, & finally I made it there. It more than lived up to its reputation -- tasty, tasty, TASTY Italian food. A friendly & attentive waiter, a charming room, & that amazing food -- I will be back again soon.
It was awesome as always. My girlfriend and I come here every year for our birthday and they always make sure it’s the best time ever.
Service via our hipster waiter was average at best. He seemed to care little about actually pleasing us and repeatedly uttered a noncommittal, "Sure" to just about everything we asked. Unfortunately, he messed up our order and we had to ask the manager to straighten things out on our bill. Food was good but not great. The gnocchi in particular was disappointing. A little rubbery and the sauce was meh. The bronzino was prepared well and had excellent flavor. Turned out to be our favorite dish. Everyone around us seemed to be ordering the spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was definitely "grandmotherly." The meatballs -- stuffed with Italian meat and cheese -- were tasty at first but were a little much after a while. Still, people seemed to really like them. We sat in the courtyard, which was nice. Fans were blowing in our faces until we asked our inattentive waiter to shift them. All in all, the place didn't quite seem to live up to its billing.
Meatballs meatballs meatballs! Order the meatballs!
Food was amazing. The restaurant itself is so adorable, especially the outside seating. Definitely, need to make a reservation ahead of time. Meatballs are amazing!
Good but salty! Everything (but the drinks) was crazy salty.
Food was fantastic. Portions were enormous. Service was excellent. I can see why this place is so difficult to get a reservation. Definite keeper!!
Excellent evening for a friend meetup. Busy. Great server who was willing to make menu recommendations (love that!). Good rose wine! My friend had grilled shrimp with black pasta that she loved. I enjoyed perfect sized dish of homemade penne vodka with sausage. We shared an olive oil cake with lemon zest. It was a rainy night and this all felt perfect. The place was very busy.
Although our server was not attentive, due to it being a busy night I suppose, the busser was extremely accommodating, friendly and took the time to explain our dishes to us. The hostess was also extremely friendly, and we felt very welcomed as soon as we walked in. The food was phenomenal, definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to leave feeling stuffed. Hats off to the kitchen, chefs, front of house, and servers (except ours)!!!!
It started pouring rain just as we finished paying the check at the outside patio. Loved the overall experience, but perhaps our waitress could have asked whether we wanted to stay for one more drink since the rain wasn't going to be letting up any time soon.
OMG! The only negatives I have: no expresso machine, too much dressing on the Caesar salad, and they could have left the raspberry sauce off the Panna cotta (so you could taste its wonderfulness ). BUT many more positives, including the service, the ambience,, and the authenticity. Had some of the best pasta ever: can't remember the name but it was garlic shrimp and squid ink pasta with fennel and saffron, blistered cherry tomatoes. Don't forget the garlic bread!!! The best! And served with a full head of oven roasted garlic. I came close to going into a food coma;-) Highly recommend over a large chain restaurant. Very cozy with super service. Lovely surprise!
I do not think we will be returning. The food was ok, the service better, but the NOISE LEVEL was off the charts. Waaaay too loud.
We had a very nice time! I would recommend dining in the patio!💕the atmosphere! Food was great as well as service, friendly and not rushed! Definitely will return.
Great food and ambiance
We found the restaurant on Yelp. It is very quaint and the food is unique, but a limited menu. Definitely not for kids or teens.
We ate here on a Saturday night during weekend visit to Philly. It is very small inside, dark and tables crowded together, so loud if crowded. Seated right away but took a while for any one to wait on us, very attentive after that. Limited menu, food is very good, authentic regional Italian. Servings were huge, we would have shared an entrée if had realized that ahead of time. People were going through a door to garden area in back, would have like to sit back there if had known about it.
Excellent service. Food is fabulous. Reservations honored
Favorite Italian in the city.
One of the best meals ever!! The Penne Alla Vodka was amazing.
The food is very good. The portions are ample. The prices are in line with the quality and location. I have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. It’s a great little place.
Very nice, warm.
We ate on the patio and it was absolutely fabulous!! We had the garlic bread, spaghetti and meatballs( in the Sunday sauce ,naturally) and special for the evening pasta special!!
What a nice place. Good food and great service. Chef offered some interesting variations on classic italian dishes. The Chef preserved the essential heritage of the dish but offered his/her own enhancements. The garlic bread is a good example. It comes with a head of oven-roasted garlic. What a nice upgrade to traditional garlic bread. Prices are very fair for a major city and the quality of the food.
I was so disappointed in this restaurant. It came so HIGHLY recommended. The NOISE level was atrocious. I could not hear my companion across the table. I asked the server to lower the music and was looked at like I was from another planet. I will NEVER EVER go back there.
Fabulous experience in the courtyard. Three of us shared three dishes to start then three entrees. We had fresh share plates and silverware. Plenty of table space and attentive service keeping us tidy. We weren’t rushed, our glasses were kept full. Again, fabulous.
Everything is fantastic! Wasn't our first time and can't wait to visit again.
It was a very nice spot for a nice quiet dinner!!!
Excellent as always. Well executed menu with daily specials that are top notch.
I thought this was a quaint restaurant. The ambiance was nice, the service was great and we enjoyed the food. Would definitely go back again!
Antipasto plate was outstanding. Scallops delicious - especially pureed cauliflower. Excellent value.
Wonderful lunch! Attentive, friendly service. Great craft cocktail and excellent food. Must get the gnocchi - best Ive ever eaten.
Amazing gem we stumbled upon while visiting! Highly recommend!
