Nonna Rosa's Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
It was very chilly in the restaurant with drafts from the window we were sitting next to and from the doors. It was New Year’s Eve so the service was somewhat slow, which was somewhat to be expected. We hope that service is more up to par on a typical evening.
Nona Rosa's remains my favorite restaurant nearly seven years after I first discovered it. The food is unique and amazing. Chef Francesco, being born and raised in Italy, ensures the food is authentic and delicious.
The ambiance is warm and welcoming. With the warmth of the staff, it always feels as if you are dining with friends.
My husband and I had our wedding reception dinner at Nona Rosa's in 2014, and that event remains one if my favorite evenings of all times.
Robbinsdale has become a fun destination, and we always enjoy dinner at Nona Rosa's, shopping at Finds on Broadway, and a beer at Wicked Wort.
Food is always delicious. Service is fair. We had a large table, only one server. She was so busy with her other tables, she barely had time to refill our water glasses (manager was sitting at the bar - she should have gotten up to help!) Highly recommend their seafood dishes in addition to their pasta. Fodder is great, just don't expect great service.
Service was friendly. We shared an app, wine, dinner and dessert. Only constructive feedback was the temp of the main meal could have been warmer. We ended w an affagato and gelato is made in house....we received the end of the batch and the portion was generous! We will be back!
Cozy dining spot in Robbinsdale with a great authentic menu. Service was exceptional and the food we ordered (with recommendations from our server) was impressive and plentiful. Nice wine list and great coffee after dinner. This was our first visit to Nonna Rosa’s and we’ll probably make it one of regular dinner spots!
After several times being at Nonna Rosa this time was a real bummer. The special was very small piece of fish and the Alfredo sauce with the fettuccine was very Bland. The description of the specials by the waitress was very weak, the food that came out after ordering the special was much different than she described
Overall the experience was good. We had to wait about 15 minutes with our reservation. The tables are too close and the people behind us were very loud. The menu does not list items where is comes with Parmesan cheese. I had to return my dish. The waitress assumed I knew it came with cheese. I am not sure how I would have known that if not clearly stated on the menu. That is important to know if any allegies. Anyway they promptly gave me a new dish without the cheese. My husband's seafood pasta sauce was too watery. The bread was very dry and should be served with olive oil which would make it better. They also ran out of the first dish my husband had chosen. We had been there once in the past and had forgotten about the place. We may be back, but is not my first choice for authentic Italian food.
This was our second visit to Nonna Rosa's. My wife and I both ordered the Veal Parm. We were seated next to the kitchen area where the noise and bright ceiling lights were distracting. The waitress was very pleasant and engaging, although "warned" me that my special request for penne instead of spaghetti might be ignored by the kitchen (apparently no special requests on Friday or Saturday unless related to allergy). Hard to believe penne was a difficult request. The bread was disappointing - very dry with no real texture and minimal crust. If you told me it was gluten free I would have believed it. The salad was limp with one slice of greenish tomato, one slice of cucumber, and lettuce that was past it's prime. Finally the veal was very thin and overcooked, although the sauce was flavorful and there was plenty of cheese. Our experience several months ago was much better.
The food was pretty good. My husband order the carbonara, which was much better than my seafood cannelloni. I liked mine but it needed a little something extra. It was a bit bland. The bruschetta was super fresh and delicious! The server seemed overwhelmed and took awhile to take care of our bill. If we were to return, I would try something other than the cannelloni.
Overall, it was a nice experience.
Great food and service as always. We were here for my husbands birthday. We have our favorites here, but tried some of their specials this time. Lamb was flavorful, tender and well presented. I had their Mediteranean risotto with scallops. It was perfectly prepared, a large portion, that reheated well for lunch the next day.
We wanted to sit outdoors and enjoy a beautiful evening so we tried it. Patio is great. Service was a 2 on scale of 1-5. Not the servers fault. The 2 of them were busting it. They clearly don't have enough help. The spaghetti was delicious. My husband had the clam, scallop combination. He thought it was great. We'd go back if the service was better. Not going to wait 20 minutes for a glass of wine. If the owners can kick it up a notch, wr'lll return. Too many choices to succumb to long wait time to spend money. Sorry.
