Little Nonna’s is an Italian-American eatery in Center City’s bustling Midtown Village. Inspired by the “red sauce” family-owned ristorantes of Italian immigrants, Chef Turney offers thoughtful interpretations of homestyle Italian-American dishes with an all-Italian wine list and handcrafted cocktails. The cozy 40-seat restaurant is evocative of an Italian grandmother’s living room, circa 1950, featuring vintage lace in the windows, hanging antique copper pots and an outdoor garden that seats an additional 40 guests.

It was a lovely date destination with an eclectic menu. We enjoyed the Sunday gravy!! Best meatball ever, my wife says.

Portion size is rather small and considering its pricey for Italian I expected a little more food on the plate. Me and my girlfriend got cheesesteaks afterwards so we clearly were still hungry.

Easily one of my favorite places for dinner! Their courtyard seating area is super cute and quaint. Cute place for a date or even a small get-together with friends. Service is quick, efficient and friendly.

Amazing food as always. Requested a candle in the dessert for a birthday, which was missed so that was a little disappointing, but will certainly be back for great food.

Absolutely amazing. Meatballs stuffed w/ cheese - must try. The 'Sunday Gravy' pasta dish was one of the best meals I've had in a while. Brussel sprouts with pancetta was very tasty. Burrata amazing. Everything we had was great. We will be back soon.

We went for dinner with another couple I am vegetarian and had a variety of choices. I had the special, a beet ravioli with fresh beets, pistachios and a brown butter sauce that was outstanding. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and was very pleased. And it was a very large portion. My friend had the chicken, which she said was dry, but the sides were very good. Her husband had the braised lamb pasta dish and thought it excellent. The ambiance is warm, cozy and friendly. We would definitely go back.

Waitress seemed somewhat sad. Wasn't very helpful or made you feel as if she wasn't going to be.
