Nonna Cucina Rustica Ratings and Reviews
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
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:)
Great service and great food. Nice ambiance like we were sitting in Nonna's house. Highlight of the evening- ravioli with goat cheese, ricotta, pine nuts , dates and prosciutto . Homemade pasta with an amazing sauce. We are from Boston and eat in the North End often. We both agreed these were the best ravioli we have ever tasted! Literally melt in your mouth.-
