My husband & I just moved here from Long Island. It’s been hard finding places that are comparable to what we are used to going to as far a good food. We were recommended Nonna’s so we tried it out a few weeks ago & we were very pleased with it. It was the best tasting food we have eaten since moving here, so we decided we would go back for our birthday dinner. This time it was a huge disappointment. We made a reservation & my mother in law called the restaurant earlier in the day requesting that we surprise my husband with a little birthday cake/dessert large enough for 3 people & they said ok. We had 2 waitresses working with us & I don’t know if they don’t work well together or if they just don’t care about their customers but they were horrible & they pretty much ruined my husbands birthday dinner.
First off we ordered the calamari appetizer as soon as the waitress came to our table to ask for our drink order. I ordered a glass of wine. It took them forever to bring my glass of wine & fill our glasses up with water. So we sat there with bread (which was hard as a rock) and had nothing to drink for about 10 minutes. We ordered our meal & we realized they were taking a long time to bring our appetizer & then out comes out dinner. They completely forgot to bring out our appetizer. The waitress blamed each other for that mistake. My mother in law had a side dish of pasta in a garlic wine sauce that was completely dry. After all the mistakes they made I decided to go up to the hostess to double check they didn’t forget about the dessert we called & requested & they assured me it would be taken care of. In the meantime the waitress (both of them) were never in sight, we didn’t get asked if everything was ok & we never got a refill of water. Then they finally came & asked us if we wanted dessert so we again mentioned the dessert we requested earlier. She looked confused but just yes’s us & then returns with the check. FORGETTING THE DESSERT!

We love Nonna's for celebrating a birthday or when we can get together with a few friends. Both the family style menu and the specials are always outstanding (the short rib ravioli special was phenomenal), as was the Sunday Sauce. Our waiter (Dan) was knowledgeable and efficient. Nine of us had a great evening.

Four of us had dinner, we've been there before.....2 had fantastic meals, 2 had mediocre...the mediocre meals were the same, the special ravioli w/ marscapone cheese....tasted like jarred sauce and almost no cheese....$27 for ravioli....stay away from that choice. Everything else, great.

Went out with my fiancé because I received a gift card for our engagement. We have both been to the restaurant before and we’re glad that we got to go back. The food was good as always and the servers were good, but didn’t talk to each other. Overall a good experience and we will definitely be back in the future.

Haven’t been to this place in years. Always seems crowded as I drive past and figured I would give it another try. Reminds me of Olive Garden. I expected a lot more from private restaurant. Needless to say I won’t be going back.

Went for Mom’s 70+ Birthday. Food was delicious as we ordered the Primo family style which was more than enough food and lots of choices. A little disappointed that all beers on tap were unavailable though... and they were still on bill but were adjusted after we pointed out.

Definite recommend as food and service was very good

Food was delicious. Service was good for half the night until our waitress disappeared for awhile. Took us 10 minutes to flag someone down to get some parmesan cheese. Then a different waitress took our dessert order. Took a long time to get dessert at which time the original waitress showed back up and dumped our check at the same time as the dessert. Totally inappropriate.

We went for my mother in law's birthday and all enjoyed ourselves and the restaurant . The food was great-- I ordered the chicken parm and I don't like thick chicken so i asked if it was thin chicken before I ordered it. The chicken was not only thin but it was cooked perfectly. My MIL had the eggplant parm and took the rest home because it was such a large portion and she only eats like a bird lol Service was great-- never low on drinks or bread for the table.

I planned a birthday celebration for a party of 12; I arrived 15 minutes early and was promptly greeted. My table was ready on time and even though we were not all present and accounted for I was given the option of being seated. The server promptly arrived and took an order for drinks, as the remainder of the party arrived they were given the opportunity to order cocktails. The server answered questions regarding the menu and suggested for a large party we order family style. There were enough selections to please everyone, even the three children. I was also pleased with the wine selections; there were choices for every budget. The timing between the 3 courses was a little slow but for fresh cooked food this is expected. With family style you can ask for seconds on any of the dishes, the wait for this was too long and extended the stay approximately 45 minutes. This was my only complaint, I will go back but next time I will ask the server to have refills available for my favorites.

Noticed the more recent changes in the menu didn't help. Quality seems to be slipping and would like to see them get back on track. Great ambiance and potential but rather see them not offer so many groupons and just improve the quality of the food. If the food is good, people will come.

We had a wonderful experience! We had come with a group of 7 (3 of them 13 and under), were greeted immediately and provided the specials for the evening. Our server was attentive to everything, from bringing bread to the table, refilling our waters, and asking us if we wanted more drinks, even helpful with choosing the 4 year old's meal. We didn't even realize that the food had taken longer than planned, but our server did and notified the manager who gave us a discount. We would definitely go there again!

First, let me say the food was great! I loved the pork chop and my wife loved her chicken scarpiello. The thing I would change is how loud it can get. But, a good casual night out. I definitely would meet friends or family here for dinner.

Table was super wobbly, almost spilled my wine twice... No idea who our server was, first an older man came over to greet us, then left us for over 20 minutes without taking our appetizer order even though we told him we wanted to put it in. It looked like he was overwhelmed with a larger party he had, or just was choosing to give them better service since it was a larger party and would probably make a higher tip off of them. Finally, a younger woman came by and took our order. My boyfriend had to wait over 30 minutes for a refill of his coke while waiting for our food. No one came to check on us after we received our food until we were almost done. They offered me cheese and pepper for my food when I had about 4 bites left. Then we waited a long time for our check. When we finally received it from the original male waiter, it was wrong because I had already given the female waitress my phone to scan a groupon I had... Food was amazing, but over all just a bad experience. It was supposed to be a romantic celebration of our 3 year anniversary, so it was kind of upsetting we were treated like this. I used to come to this place a lot when I was younger with my parents and really enjoyed it, so I'm pretty upset with the way we were treating during our dinner there.

This is our forth time here so obviously we enjoy the atmosphere and food. Unfortunately, this time the service was horrible. We did not get our salads ( they offered to box it for us at no charge to take home) and the waitress never came back to see if we were okay with our dinner. Also after our plates were cleared she again never came back to see if we wanted coffee or dessert. I had to get someone else to chase her down to get our check.
She seemed a little overwhelmed.
