We enjoyed another wonderful meal. Carl was our server and he was very helpful, gregarious and fun. His wine recommendation was spot on. I enjoyed the special ravioli stuffed with short rib meat.

This was our second time at Nonna's, but this time we brought our very close friends one of whom was having his birthday. They are very upscale dinners and used to the best. They loved it!

All of our lives are so busy, that when we find time to enjoy ourselves it is critical that that time energize you so that you can wake up tomorrow with a smile on your face.

Nonna's will not disappoint you! You will leave knowing your time was well spent and you will remember that evening fondly for a long time.

I have been going here with my husband for Valentine's day and our anniversary the past 5 years. It's romantic, food is superb, and service is excellent. Highly recommend. We usually order off the special list and are never disappointed. Thanks!

This restaurant is just what is needed to reward yourself and party to a wonderful dinner after a challenging week.

Life can be nearly overwhelming sometimes, but dinner here will help make you realize it was worth it.

We will most certainly be back.

The menu selections were good. My double pork chop, however was extremely tough and hard to even cut through. The waitress didn't check back with us during the meal (or else I would have told her about this). I had only eaten a small portion and could eat no more. The bus person kept trying to take my plate. Finally after he asked three times, and the waitress had not been by I told him to take it but to tell the chef that the pork chop was extremely overcooked and I wasn't able to eat it. He took my plate, but I'm not sure my message ever got to the chef. Nor did he tell our waitress. When the waitress finally came after both our plates were taken by the bus boy; I explained the situation to her. But by this time it was too late to correct the situation, and my co-worker had already eaten and was ready for us to leave.

I've been dining at Nonna Silvias for a couple of years now. This unassuming local gem never disappoints. When I eat lunch I usually get the Mista salad which is amazing - warm chicken, goat cheese, greens, and a great vinaigrette. This time I was there for dinner and ordered a terrific seafood entree that came in a light tomato broth. It is very easy to overcook seafood, particularly mussels, clams, and scallops. These were done perfectly and very tender. Our service was terrific as well. If you haven't tried Nonna Silvias, you're missing out

Our dinner and service were great. This was our second time eating here and we really enjoyed our meal. We had the grilled calamari and rice balls for an app- both were great. The calamari was lemony and amazing! For dinner we had eggplant Parmesan, linguine with clams and porcini purses. All were amazing. The service was on point!!

Happy New Year! My dad is in the hospital down the street, and we wanted someplace to take my 86-year old mom for early NYE dinner. Nonna Silvia’s food is always outstanding, with sane portion sizes! Rachel and the whole waitstaff are tops!

Nonna Silvias is one of my favorites. The food and service are consistently good. I love the Swiss Chard Fettuccine and the pizzas are excellent.
The main dining room can be quite noisy, but we were seated in the adjacent room recently and it was very comfortable and easy to converse.

Food with flavor is a must for me. Pasta is one of my favorites as long as it is original with flavor. The pumpkin ravioli with the goat cheese tomato cream sauce was amazing. The sauce was incredible then you bite into the ravioli and the pumpkin flavor added a second burst. Leaving reviews is not something that we normally do but if we could give them a higher than a five star we would!
