The food is amazing, once you actually get seated. I would recommend just placing an order for pick up. It will save you about 2 hours of waiting.

We discovered Nonna Rosa's 3 years ago through Open Table. The atmosphere, experience and food then were excellent. We had a chance to return to Minneapolis last weekend and re-found Nonna' Rosa through previous Open Table visits. We are so glad we did. Wonderful authentic family- neighborhood Italian restaurant. Our server Ayla is Italian has been in USA just 6 months she was friendly, efficient and knew the menu well and had great recommendations. Very much worth the flight and drive.

My family and I went there because we were craving pasta and everything was excellent. We had a wonderful and pleasant waitress. The arancini was delicious as well as each of our dishes. The portions was huge so there was plenty of leftovers to enjoy the following day. We will definitely be back!

Food at this place is exquisite. This particular lunch there was only one waiter for the entire restaurant so service was slower than usual. I have been there several times and will definitely go again.

Had 7:00 reservations and was told at check in they were 30 minutes behind, with 4 groups in front of us. Checked back at 7:30 and was told it would be about 20-30 minutes longer, with 5 groups to be seated. Very disappointed. We’re there for Valentines dinner with my wife and it was such a bad experience, we left shortly after being seated. We witnessed other groups leaving with reservations. I will not go back again.

We came here for Valentine's dinner and had to take an early dinner reservation to get in. The place is very well decorated with Italian murals on the walls. The food was savory and presented nicely. I ordered the valentines special Mahi Mahi over potatoes and the Mrs. got a chicken caesar salad. We got the Prosciutto hors d'oeuvre and the cheesecake for dessert. The fish was perfectly done with a bit of a crust on the top. The potatoes were whipped so nicely with the skin still on. The cheesecake was "the best I have ever had" according to my wife. The wait staff was friendly and did their best on what is likely one of the busiest nights of the year. At no time did they seem overly rushed or panicked though. I really enjoyed our dinner, while "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant" played in my head. I would definitely recommend!

Really wanted to like this place: it's hard to get good Italian food in the Twin Cities. Great server, fun atmosphere--but, yeesh, the food is just not good.

Honestly, I felt cheated after having dinner here! We traveled all the way from the city because we saw the 4.5-star review and hoped for a great time. Spaghetti Carbonara was made with alfredo sauce that was probably around 3000 calories. There is no way to finish it without having a heart attack, and I've never heard of an alfredo Carbonaro in my life. My attempt is to warn customers from out of town like me and make sure they don't expect a 4.5-star meal and service. Good luck

Food was good. But the bread was stale on a busy Saturday night. There is really no excuse for stale bread in an Italian restaurant.

We, in Robbinsdale are so fortunate to have Nonna Rosa - always fresh authentic Italian cuisine- Home made everything! Great service and lovely ambiance. Love this place & visit often at all different times & occasions. My Amaretto Gelato topped off my shrimp & angel hair main dish, can still taste them & will return again & again.

Our server was great. She has Italian heritage and seemed to love her job. Our veal dishes were very good, I had the Picata.
Two others had the Veal Parmesan but thought the red sauce was very bland. Overall we had a very nice experience.

This is one of our go to restaurants. We always enjoy the food. It is a family run restaurant. The chef is more than helpful when we ask for alterations on the menu. (I like a dish he makes that is no longer on the menu and he always makes it for me.) They have a small bar and unlike other restaurants that we go to actually serve expresso which my husband likes after a good dinner. I love their home made gelato and their warm chocolate cake with the gelato is absolutely delish.

We love eating at Nonna Rosa's first and foremost for the quality and variety of AUTHENTIC Italian cuisine. Walk through the front door and you are warmly welcomed by the greeter. Everyone working in this establishment is so friendly and proud of the food they serve. The cook Francesco is a genius. This is a family run operation and you never have to wave a server down for assistance they are there always for you. They NEVER push you to finish your meal. Meals are served fresh and hot with delicious bread and butter on the side. I always leave with my mind, body and soul nourished. You will never regret selecting this restaurant for your next meal or gathering with family and friends. The clientele are elderly down to little tots. Everyone is welcome here.
