Perfect little spot for an intimate dinner
The door to the patio kept opening which made the restaurant very cold. The table we were seated was along the bar so caused crowded areas as we enjoyed the meal
I’ve come to Little Nonna’s twice now, and it has never disappointed! Their food is fantastic, and the waiters give great suggestions for which wine to pair with. The best part is the cozy ambiance. Will definitely come back!
Cute little spot, very festive for the holidays. We arrived early and were seated right away, hostess was very friendly. They do not have a bar, just limited house drinks; the server was dismissive and not helpful in explaining this. Food was decent, nothing too special. We got our appetizers and entrees and the server never checked on us to see how we liked everything. We were in wouldn’t go back!
3rd time here for the Army Navy weekend. My family loves Little Nonna’s. Super cozy and friendly. See you next year.
Visiting Philadelphia. Wanted a restaurant close to my hotel. Food was good but a limited menu. Would recommend.
This restaurant is fabulous! We enjoyed diner with great friends before seeing the philly pops Christmas show. The food was delicious—who knew spaghetti & meatballs could be so good!
Pretty limited menu, but the food we had was delicious. Maybe the best meatballs I've ever had? Portions were very large. Service was incredibly fast, and very friendly. Atmosphere was nice.
Went here for a birthday dinner and the food and atmosphere were perfect! We were seated right away and food came out quickly. If anything, I'd prefer a more leisurely pace to the meal, but it was a Sunday night and they were busy.
Everything from the appetizers to dessert was second to none. The service was quick, and the ambiance was perfect. I’d been to Little Nonna’s once before, and forgot just how good this place was. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Italian food!
Great food great service and usual.
The service was excellent -- the food good. I was disappointed that I could not order a simple garden salad with my entree.
It was my husband’s birthday and I mentioned it while booking the table. So I was expecting them to do something but they didn’t. Usually when a special occasion is mentioned, restaurants do something special and since little Nonna did not, so I was slightly upset.
Lovely little gem of a restaurant. We'll be back next time we're in the area!!
What a wonderful evening. No wait for out table, great waitstaff and everyone was right-garlic bread to die for! Sunday gravy was yummy with a perfect bottle of wine and their desserts are just like Italy!
excellent experience. The italo-american style is very worth trying!
The food was spectacular...so delicious. The staff, as well as the fellow patrons, were so friendly. The homey-comfortable atmosphere added to the wonderful experience. I would describe the food as comfort with a unique twist. The flavors popped in your mouth. Every bite delicious! I would highly recommend Little Nonna’s!
Little Nonna’s is honestly some of the best Italian food in Philly. So quaint, impeccable service, even better food. I had a special request for a quiet table in a corner on the patio and they delivered without hesitation. Our server Tracy was very attentive but not overbearing. If you can, absolutely sit on the patio. We will definitely be back!
Little Nonna"s is an informal, warm and friendly Italian restaurant with a limited but authentic menu.
The portions are large. Wine selections are good. Overall, a good restaurant to choose if you are looking for a pleasant meal in an unassuming setting.
We had lunch before a show at The Academy of Music. Great proximity to the theatre. Good food and large portions. 😊
The cacho and pepe pasta was over peppered. The spaghetti with meatballs was too much food for an ok taste. Not too bad but i would look for another place.
Meeting old friends from out of town
The appetizers, entrees and desserts were tremendous. We started with wine and then shared garlic bread and a brushetta. I had the "gravy" a generous portion of melt in your mouth short-rib, sausage and a giant meatball. The rest of my entree was pasta everything in the sauce that had obviously been cooking all day. Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was quite good and the atmosphere was very quaint!
The food is wonderful, the setting is eclectic and fun. We shared several small plates and a dessert, a round of drinks and coffee and were perfectly satisfied! It was a perfect meal before orchestra.
Always a winning choice! Excellent food, service and ambiance. Great location. Awesome meeting place for family and friends. We always go back and bring people new to Little Nonna's!
Everything was great but backyard could have been warmer if there were cushions on the seats.
We were satisfied with our meals. We were carb loading for a race and it was perfect.
My boyfriend and I took my parents here for dinner when they were in town visiting. The restaurant is very small but adds to the ambiance. Nice menu and tasty cocktails. We all had pasta dishes -- very good selections! Would definitely recommend this to anyone and will book another reservation here again.
As always ..... perfect
I've been to Little Nonna's in the past and always enjoyed it. Was looking forward to this next dining experience. Unfortunately it was not up to par with prior experience.
1. I can appreciate the patio, however, where we sat, when the 'alley door was opened' a chilling breeze was felt and although they had propane heaters, the chill was jarring
2. They absolutely forgot us. You dinner was served way behind dinners who came in after and even then, the order was incorrect.
3. the meal was mediocre and not what I was expecting from Little Noona's. As I said earlier, previous experiences was always very good. Found the meal under seasoned.
Food and service were great. Portions were enormous-I could have shared my meal. Very few customers, but I did eat past the lunch rush. Would recommend.
You can never go wrong with little Nonna’s. Food is always amazing. Service is on point. The outside area is dreamy. Highly recommend!
Small but well apportioned menu, everything was great, and service was prompt and friendly a neighborhood gem.
This cozy Italian-themed restaurant offers innovative and delicious cuisine in downtown Philadelphia.
Staff is invariably helpful and attentive. Great table service, nice menu, and very good value.
The food is tasty and plentiful. The noise level is moderate and the overall vibe of the restaurant is pleasant.
We had a very enjoyable meal. The service was so attentive that before we even had a chance to request another bottle of water, a new bottle appeared.
Excellent food limited wine list. Its worth the trip
Delicious food. Friendly service. Romantic outdoor heated seating was great!
