We've been coming to Nonna's for years now and have never been disappointed. We now have our friends addicted to their "pear pockets" that they drive all the way in from Staten Island. We sat at the bar and had great service. Our server even remember a drink we had last time! Will keep coming back.

This was my first time back to Nonna's in about three years. I always like this place. My reservation was for 6:30 but we arrived at 6pm and called to see if they could take us early. The phone was answered by a woman whose monotone voice told me immediately she didn't want to be there. The good news is that she accommodated our early seating. After about a 10 minute wait we were seated in a mostly empty dinning room. I assume they are limiting the number of guests who are seated due to a short staff? Not sure. The server seemed nice enough and came to our table fairly quickly after being seated. Took our drinks and our appetizer order. So far so good. The drinks came out quickly and it was followed up by our appetizer which we ordered popcorn mozzarella which is small, round fresh mozz, coated with breadcrumbs and pesto mixture. It was very good. From here it was all down hill. We started feeling rushed by the waiter, and the attentiveness declined. While we managed to put in our entrée order the waiter never refilled our waters and the three of us were either empty or near empty. Then the food arrived. Penne with bolognese, Spaghetti in butter sauce and chicken parm. The penne was overcooked, it was smothered in sauce, almost 3X what was needed and the sauce was bitter. The chicken parm was no better, the chicken was obviously cooked in advance, advance meaning days earlier. It was dry, tough and without flavor. The sauce was better on this plate though. My son's spaghetti was okay but it's a very simple dish so not too much to complain about. Again, still no refills.

It goes without saying this is not the same quality I remembered a few years earlier. Very disappointed and will not go back to this restaurant.

Food was a glob of slop. Overcooked meatballs,tough short ribs and 3day old sausage. The pasta was drowned in sauce! This was my last visit

We had reservations & were seated promptly - Food was fabulous from start to finish, interesting drink choices that also were distinct, not the norm & really delicious! Service was the best even on a busy night. Ambiance was perfect and comfort in seating. We ordered from the top level family style menu and were not disappointed. Cappuccinos capped off the night with a pre planned plate of sampling sweets. All in all an exceptional experience. We will be back!

Most entrees between $20-25. Menu kind of limited, especially for fish dishes like shrimp, calamari, etc. There was a scallop dish $32. The Family Plan for a minimum of 4 had more options. The chicken parm and marsala were very good. The service was fine; waiter disappeared a couple of times. Nice meal reasonable price, good service.

Overall excellent. I just couldnt eat my “famous” eggplant rollatini. It tasted…old. The sauce was so acidic heavy and unappealing. It was like it was reheated a few times. Not that it was but thats how it tasted. I didnt return it because i didnt want to make a fuss on our special day. *sad face

It was our anniversary and was in the notes but nobody made any mention to it. Its fine but why ask in reservation.

Used to have the best calamari, it was over cooked.

Had a group of 6 so we did the top end family style. Choices were great, short ribs a little fatty. Other than that all food was tasty. Very good experience.
