We were looking for a restaurant that took reservations in the vicinity of the Allstate arena. Based upon the high number of rave reviews we decided to give Nonna's a try - and we were not disappointed. The housemade polenta was a delicious starter and all three of the pasta dishes were fresh and flavorful. We will definitely be back next time we're in the area.

My wife and I had a gift card and it was our first time dining there. Service was impeccable and we really enjoyed every aspect of our experience. Food, cocktails, loud ambiance, people watching were all great.

Definitely recommend the carpaccio appetizer with an old fashioned.

Excited to go back for a special occasion.

We have been to Nonna Silvias many times. Our previous visits were first rate-this time, my roast chicken was a bit dry, but everyone else enjoyed their meals to the fullest. This is always a go-to spot for us. Yes, I would recommend it to a friend (and have done so).

I was out for lunch. I ordered the beef carpaccio and the peppardelle bolognese. The carpaccio was superb, with a classic preparation of arugula and capers with Parmesan! The peppardelle was good but could improve . The pasta was over cooked and over sauced but just slightly as it was a soft bite rather than al dente and the sauce has a great flavor! I finished with the Chianti by the glass and an espresso! Great place, good food!

I believe everyone but one of the attendees were very happy with the food. I understand 2 orders had to be sent back, one of the ones that came back was great, the other was not.
Apparently it was very crowded at the time my group went.

Had the homemade pasta and soup. VERY good, was surprised at how busy it was for a Wednesday night. Service was good (a bit slow - one waiter only - no problem). Waiter was very nice and helpful. Definitely will return.

We have been coming here for several years. We love it and have recommended it to many of our friends. The food is always fresh and of a high quality. I love how the waitstaff always remembers us and comes over to say hello! This is a family run restaurant and I really like the friendly atmosphere.

This place always delivers and has never disappointed! The grilled calamari are wonderful. The seafood paella with saffron wine sauce and risotto was out of this world, and I always order the Swiss chard pasta, which is homemade (as is all of their pastas I believe). The tiramisu is fantastic - a delicious light way to end a great a dinner. We’ve brought many friends here so far and will continue to.

Absolutely loved this place. Great, great food. So many yummy things on the menu it was difficult to choose. We all went for something different, so it was funny tasting each other's choice. I would highly recommend. We were a group of 6 and our service was truly outstanding. In fact, best service I've had in a very long time. Will definitely go back!

Lobe this place! Italian owned Italian restaurant. Simple but charming decor. The food is great!! Best grilled calamari. Amazing pasta. Only wish we didn’t order everything at once. Food courses came out way too fast. Our waitress seemed very rushed even though we asked her to to not rush our food. Haven’t had this issue before. Will come back though. The food is too good to not come back again and again.

I have been to Nonnas many times. The experience was not as positive as usually. The service was very slow. The prices increased and the menu changed a bit. Still worth going but not my top choice.

Attending a conference in nearby Rosemont and went here for dinner because of its #1 trip advisor rating. It was wonderful, great food, great server, great Italian. Our server, Martin, from Poland was great. You can't go wrong here.
