Had a fantastic dinner with the family despite being forced to eat outside in November in Chicago due to Covid restrictions. Food was phenomenal and service was outstanding. With the tent and heaters set up outside, we were warm even with the cold temps. Excellent experience & would highly recommend!

We had another great experience. Karl is hilarious and offers entertainment just by his energy! Good always excellent. Keep up the great work! We will be ordering in throughout the winter to help the business during quarantine times.

Our server was great and yes, it was quite loud and noisy but that's to be expected when you are sitting on the street.
Hopefully the guidelines will change soon before the temps fall so some seating will be available inside.

We chose to eat outside, not being aware of how noisy the traffic on Canfield would be.

The food is always delicious, and the outside with the tent and heaters was perfect for our Covid-friendly dinner in October! Our waiter, Carl was absolutely awesome! He was helpful with suggestions, but also kept us laughing every time he stopped by the table!

This was our second visit and was even better than our first experience. Our waitress had good knowledge of the wine list and wrote nothing down for orders placed by the six people in our party. Very authentic and enjoyable. We'll be back!

The food was delicious. The service was exceptional. The outdoor tent was a little cold so we moved inside where the lighting was too dim. But overall a wonderful experience.

There were many two person tables open and we were put at the fire exit. We were supposed to be on a romantic date. We had awful service. Two other couples arrived after us and received their food before us. Our waitress checked on us twice throughout the evening. Never asked to refresh drinks. We felt ignored. I don’t plan to go again.

We have dined here several times! With a wide variety of choices, we are always able to find something delicious. I had the Veal Saltimbocca- so tender and the sauce!! My husband had the Tilapia and it also very good. Always a treat to go to this Italian restaurant- Nonna Silvia’s is a solid choice for consistently great food and wonderful service!

We sat outside and it was a nice evening but tables weren’t spaced well. My chicken was so overcooked I had difficulty cutting it. I’m sorry I didn’t send it back. Our waiter didn’t bring out the two vegetable sides we ordered.

Disappointing.
