Nonna Silvias Trattoria and Pizzeria
It was all fantastic and made even more special by the surprise birthday dessert.
Very good food and service. Seemed pricey for what we were served. However, the noise level was outrageous. No one in our party of four could hear each other speak. We won't return.
Very good food! Nice atmosphere. Large wine list. Will go back again and recommend to others.
We were a table of eight, which included three small kids. Our server was Gabriella, and she was outstanding! The food was very good, several had fish, pasta, and the pizza was terrific!! My only thought would be the bread basket was a little boring, and although it was averages we went thru three baskets! Our waitress was outstanding!!
Will definitely return!!
Excellent food and creative, yet not overly fussy, cocktails. Highly recommend the Swiss chard fettuccine and the Ruby Slipper drink (if you like grapefruit juice). Plus attentive service. A comfortable neighborhood place that is equally good for a special outing.
Celebrating Father's Day, we decided to go to Nonna Silvias to have a nice Italian meal. With my husband liking pizza, and being Father's Day, that is what he ordered. We have had their pizza's before so our daughter and I ordered pasta from the specials. It was very good and had plenty for leftovers the next day. This is a nice neighborhood type of restaurant and we definitely will be back again.
The evening we had dinner here, the restaurant was very busy, especially the outdoor tables. Consequently, the staff seemed very rushed, and service was slow. We waited over 30 minutes for two entrees. Usually the staff are very attentive, but it appears that they were short-staffed for the number of customers being served.
Homemade pasta was delicious! Service very friendly!
There was a piece of plastic in our pizza. The entire staff worked to make it right for us. They were attentive, caring, and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Nonna Silvia’s to a friend, and I myself would go back.
Four of us met here for an early dinner on a Saturday, and enjoyed the evening very much. However, as the restaurant filled up, it became much noisier. Noise is NOT an asset which the review form claims is "energetic." We will return, being sure to come around 5 pm.
I found this place using TripAdviser. The food was great. Our waiter offered to have the chef prepare food to our liking or to prepare something that was not on the menu. The restaurant was a little noisy even though it was not extremely crowded. Our waiter was very funny and engaging. Overall, I would highly recommend Nonna Silvias.
Our waiter was very personable and efficient. He definitely added to our dining experience.
We missed their octopus special which we usually order but the PeI mussels made up for it.
The food is always fresh and service is top notch. Great for business meals, date night or casual dinner.
Love the food and the neighborhood. Seems like the prices have gone way up though.
Nice restaurant however we were rushed by waitperson- just sat down and asked what we would like. She came back quickly and asked again.
Bus people want to take plates away with 3/4 of meal still on plates - what’s the hurry the place has many open tables.
Again nice place but too rushed to enjoy the birthday meal.
I've been going to Nonna Silvia's with my family for years as my mom lives the next neighborhood over. Their grilled octopus is delicious and there's something for everyone on the menu. I highly recommend the filet medallions and the sapore di mare. They are happy to accommodate any allergies or make minor changes/substitutions to your dish. The wine selection is great and the waitstaff is ALWAYS friendly, attentive and accommodating. Definitely get the authentic Italian tiramisu for dessert...if you've saved room for it that is!
I celebrated my Birthday there. Our server was fabulous. She made our dining experience exceptional with her expertise suggestions.
Always high quality food and the service team was very attentive. We have never had a bad experience. It’s our go-to casual Italian restaurant.
Great food. Holly was super! Professional, efficient and just the right level of friendly!
Great service as always! Delicious food!!
Love this place. We have been going here since before my husband and I were married. Always have great service and great food. Love Rachel the server! She has remembered our favorite apps, and wine since day 1. She also is the best at making recommendations.
If you LOVE Italian food, you will LOVE Nonna's! Always fresh, delicious and satisfying!
We went on Sunday for Mother’s Day and had such a wonderful experience! Nice service ....delicious food! Price is ok! We will definitely come back!
We have seen this restaurant for years and just never tried it out until this past Saturday. The food was wonderful. Service was excellent. A local treasure! My wife and I had a great time!
great food great service ......................that is everything I look for and they delivered
Enjoyed the outdoor dining option on a warm May evening. The street can be a bit noisy at times, but the patio has a relaxing mid-western aura. The menu was excellent, although it had yet to be converted from Winter to Spring/Summer. I had the sauteed whitefish filet with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Very nice! Definitely would recommend it for a casual evening out.
What a delightful restaurant! We went there for a birthday celebration and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I highly recommend the Pollo Veneta (chicken medallions, spinach, shitake mushrooms, and sun dried tomatoes in a delicious sauce). Others raved about the pumpkin ravioli in another wonderful sauce.
Our servers were so welcoming and friendly! We really enjoyed the meal from start to finish. And, I let them know when I made the reservation that this was a birthday and they brought out a yummy chocolate brownie with ice cream and a candle at the end of the meal. We even sang.
I would choose this restaurant any day over some of the pricier and less welcoming restaurants in the area. It is a white linen napkin kind of place without being cold or stuffy. Excellent!
It wasn’t bad it wasn’t great either. I wanted to try the restaurant based on the excellent reviews. It is simple and clean with decent food and average service.
The people seem nice enough but it took forever to get a beverage, another long wait for a dessert menu...multiple attempts at getting a hold of the server who had forgotten about us even though it wasn’t crowded ... small portions for the price and location. Only one dessert option.
I doubt I will be returning for a second visit.
Really nice, friendly spot to meet after work for good food and friendly service. It gets loud but wait staff is engaged and everyone is enjoying themselves. Delicious Brussels sprouts shaved salad with bacon was unexpected but tasty. Always love their pizza.
Family dinner was great. We have 3 noisy babies with us, and they didn't seem to mind at all. Very accommodating
We’ve been going here for several years. Always make it a special occasion with friends as well. Food is always tasteful and outstanding. Service has never let us down. Carl is always on top of everything for the table and adds some humor. Highly recommend.
I was a little disappointed that I made it clear we were there for my wifes birthday & there was basically no acknowledgement of it. It won't deter me from coming back, but probably not for a special occasion.
Great food and wonderful service, we come here a lot & it's one of the best in the area.
My mom and I were visiting Chicago from Boston, staying in Rosemont. We were taking Uber so we wanted something fairly close to our hotel. Nonna Silvia’s was within a few miles and had great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed . The restaurant was busy which is always a good sign. The ambiance was great. As soon as we sat down and got settled, a waitstaff brought us water and a fresh loaf of Italian bread with oil. I got the pollo Arosto. Serving size was generous, presentation very good and it was full of flavor. My mother got the Rotolo. The taste was great, especially the cream sauce. However, the presentation was not the most appealing. Just two big logs of pasta with a peachy/pinky cream sauce poured all over it. Some fresh basil sprinkled over the top would have helped. If you can get past the presentation you will enjoy the meal. Overall we really enjoyed our visit and recommend this restaurant.
Wonderful experience. Would definitely go back. I had the lasagna and it was expertly prepared. Homemade noodles and just the right amount of layers/sauce/cheese in every bite. The calamari appetizer is also a winner.
I've been here before and every I'm here, it's pretty noisy - but I'm pretty sensitive to noise and there was a large group sitting fairly close to us and we had a group of 5. They should not put two larger groups near each other otherwise you get a lot of loud talking in one area.
I had the mussels appetizer as a main meal and it was mediocre at best - kind of fishy tasting. The bread was good and the special beet salad was excellent.
Great place for a friends get-together! The food and service are always excellent! The pastas, special entrees, and appetizers always delicious.
The service here was very friendly and prompt. Gabrielle (?) provided details about the entrees and wines that were helpful. The atmosphere on a Saturday around 5 was low key and comfortable. Food, especially the pastas, were excellent, very fresh with tasty sauces. We had a wonderful evening.
Great food, good wine. If you go earlier, you will see children. Less kids after 6:30. We went on a Sunday eve and they were a little understaffed. Hopefully not always and may have been an off night. Our waitress was smiling though and happy to bring us what we needed when we got to her.
Outstanding food. I mean excellent. Ambiance was so so, seemed to be short staffed, so waiting for drinks when we first arrived was a bit long. The noise level was quite uncomfortable. Would go back, but only because of the food quality.
