Our dinners were delicious and service was very good. We dined outside so the noise level was very high. We chose an outdoor table because of Covid concerns.
We will definitely return.

Very nice place , main dishes were great…. Apparently the main source of revenue is their delivery business , as the menu for the restaurant itself has less than 10% of the items you can order for delivery/ pickup.
We would definitely go back as long as we’re not taken care of by the same server, Very nice young man but came to our table twice , never asked if we wanted another drink, walked past our table 6-7 times , had to waive him down when we needed something, even I wanted to tell him to upsell.

We had the arancini for a appetizer. It was almost as good as my own. We had the lasagne and the sacchetini porcini. We really enjoyed them both. There was crispy sage in the sacchetini that just dissolved on the tongue. No doggie bags tonight. Pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. Lovely dinner.

Great food, great service. Sat outside, which was a little noisy because of traffic and planes overhead, but overall, very nice! Third time there and all three times, my meal (and dessert) were great!

This could be my favorite Italian restaurant in all of Chicago. The pasta is always wonderful and the portions extremely generous. Service is excellent, despite the pandemic, and always delivered with a smile. Been coming here monthly for years and already looking forward to my next visit.

This was our first time at Nonna's, but it will not be our last! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner last night at this lovely trattoria. We shared the stuffed date appetizer, opted for a half bottle of the chianti and thought both the halibut (suggested by our waitperson) and risotto de mare were excellent! There was no room for dessert this time; perhaps on our next visit. Highly recommend!

The food and service as always were exceptional. I had the pork tenderloin that was on special and it was moist and hugely flavorful. While they were very busy we never felt rushed and enjoyed a nice evening outside.

I have been several times before COVID and really enjoy it. Last night I loved the food but was disappointed in the service. Took over 15 mins before a server greeted us. Had to ask several times for bread basket. Had to flag server down to place our order because he was working lots of tables outdoors. I know that restaurants have been having a tough time getting help these days and I guess last night was an example of that. I would, however, go back and try it again.
