About Nonna Cucina Rustica

Nonna provides a unique ambience blooming with history where you can savor Italian classics dishes abundant with fresh vegetables, assorted cheeses, extra virgin olive oil and “live” homemade pasta.

The menu includes a selection of dishes ranging from antipasti, soups and pasta with a variety of meats and seafood. The pizzas are made with carefully selected ingredients including Caputo flour from Naples, Italy, extra virgin olive oil unfiltered and fresh mozzarella.

"La Nonna” was the precursor of this Italian cuisine where they used the best ingredients while preparing everything from scratch. It is a throwback to the traditional and rustic cuisine. We try to respect these methods and recipes from the past while integrating cutting-edge techniques.

Absolute gem in San Juan. Please come down to this island. Many wonderful places to eat including Nonna Cucina. They need your business to help recover from last year's hurricane.

We were vacationing in Puerto Rico and our Concierge recommended Nonno's. What a treat. The food is authentic, prepared and presented beautifully, service is outstanding. We ate there 3 times in 3 weeks. Highly recommend if you are looking for real Italian food. Not a large menu, but more than adequate and the prices can't be beat.

Good food as always, but to our surprise the menu was very limited comparing to previous visits. Charging for bottle water is unacceptable, give the customer to have tap water instead

What a find! A fairly limited menu exquisitely prepared with friendly knowledgeable service. Prices are more than reasonable for quality and quantity of meals. Understand that it's packed on the weekend so go on an early weekday evening for a real treat.

Best dinner I’ve had on vacation in Puerto Rico. Or anywhere else in the last 6 months.

DO NOT let the location keep you away from this jewel of an Italian bistro. Great service, plentiful wine menu and just delicious tasting food to enjoy by a very creative kitchen

Super tasty and extremely reasonable Italian w/ homemade pasta, quality meats & fish and yummy desserts. Duck ravioli & wild mushroom risotto were standouts. Chocolate panecotte ruined my New Years resolution. Combine with friendly service and reasonable wine list = a winner

Great neighborhood Italian restaurant. Love the butternut squash risotto. Best tiramisu desert as it is home made. Great service, water glass never empty and you are not rushed to leave or finish dishes.

I had the goat cheese ravioli with pine nuts and pancetta. It was excellent. Sweet and savory together in one meal. Yum! The arugula salad was tasty too. Others had the duck ravioli, bucatini, polpets and lobster risotto. All were excellent. Wine and house specialty drinks were great. And to top it all off our servers were very friendly and accommodating to items deletion requests for certain food items and offered replacement condiments for the salads. I highly recommend Nonna's for a great dinning experience.

One of the best meals we have had! Took our family of four (including our extremely picky 10 year old American twins) and all of us gave our food a perfect "10"! Their version of a Caprese salad was perfection. My husband had the lamb lasagna, I enjoyed the goat cheese ravioli and the kids had spaghetti with meatballs and a dish very similar to chicken Parmesan in the United States. Everything was EXCELLENT! Great atmosphere, friendly service and easy street parting add to the reasons we will be back to this delightful spot.

My wife and I were looking for a local spot, outside the touristy Ashford Ave area. Hit a home run here. Our server, Jan, was great! Suggested the Carpaccio, Risotto and Raviolis. Add a few glasses of Montelpuciano and we could have been in Rome! This cozy place is a must!

We chose the restaurant based on other reviews, but was a little skeptical when we got there as the place was not busy. All that changed once we got our food. Everything was delicious from the carpaccio and fritto misto apps to the lamb shank, lasagne, mushroom risotto, farfalle mains and finally the hazelnut cake for dessert. The cake was accompanied by a praline gelato that was incredible. Absolutely scrumptious food!!!

I went to Nonna Rustica's Ocean Park location and as usual they did not disappoint. The appetizers were delish and my friend and I were already stuffed before the main course arrived...but we made room! Luis the server was extremely attentive and made great meal recommendations.

I wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend it to other friends or colleagues:)
