Thank you for a very nice outing. Thank you for writing in the menu in which dish there is cilantro. It helped me avoid it. I was hoping for more of a lava cake then it actually was. Over all we all loved the food. Thank you.

Food is spectacular as always. Live music added to - but didn’t overpower - the ambience.

Had eaten lunch there 8 weeks before and booked a 4pm table received a confirmation for my wife and myself for Sunday. Arrived at 3:45 to a closed door and we were told the restaurant wasn't opening until 4:30pm. We explained about the booking on the website and someone went and checked and came back and said a server was arriving at 4pm - did we want to wait?

We said no thanks and went elsewhere. Next question is "would we recommend?" Not a difficult question.

Service was slow - they were busy and understaffed. We waited awhile for water and bread. Food was excellent! Would go back but maybe not on a Sat night.

We had a great lunch there, sat inside by the open window. Service was good. As usual the cold smoked salmon did not disappoint. We also had the tuna melt and a salmon salad. The tuna melt was served on a ciabatta roll, this was a bit messy to eat but was delicious. For desert we had a mocha that was also delicious.

The food, a Philly cheese steak, was delicious and the fries were crispy. Excellent service, too.

To receive excellent service, it is important to me to have my glass of water always full. Water is not replenished when glass is empty or until a server is asked to do so.

I am finding the quality of this restaurant in decline; I have eaten there twice in the past month and both times my food was just ok.

Last night the French Onion soup was in a smaller bowl that 2 weeks ago, the broth was thin, and there were far fewer onions. I ordered the charred octopus salad; it was not chard, it was barely cooked, and unappealing. I was given a new entree, a mushroom ravioli. Favorfull enough, but the sauce was thin.

Dessert was just ok; lava cake that tasted microwaved honestly.

All that for over $80 after leaving a decent tip.

Great place for lunch with a good variety of well-prepared meals. The parklet has been well done with a wood flooring - nicer than pavement. Good shade and space from others. Really love the innovative sandwiches.

My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary last night at Nonni’s Bistro and we wish we’d gone somewhere else. Service was not very good. We had to ask couple of times for wine (came after meal, asked twice for wine, came after finished dinner). Waiter recommended special for dinner (pork loin). I commented my concerns about pork loin can be dry and easily over cooked. He assured me the pork would be tender and juicy. The pork was terrible. Very dry, over cook, and no flavor. My husband offered to share his meal with me. My husband ordered the duck (duck was good but came out cold). The waiter saw that I was not eating my meal and offer to replace pork with another option. I ordered the lamb chops (lamb chop were good). Evening did not go well. We will not return. Not a good value for money. Other very good restaurants in area.

We had a very nice dinning experience at Nonni's. The food was very good, especially the goat cheese crepe appetizer. Our main course, grilled flank steak was also outstanding. The service was well done and we had a lovely overall experience.

Wow. If you are looking for a great restaurant for lunch, look no further. My two friends and I made a reservation for outdoor dining, and it was wonderful. The service was impeccable, the food was incredible, and the ambience was lovely. We all had the salmon salad--Amazing! So delicious. I highly recommend this amazing place.

We ate our lunch inside. Food delicious, service good, cleanliness an issue as well as Covid safe practices.

Carpeted floor desperately needed a vacuum. One of the female staff had her mask off and her fingers in her mouth. Put mask up then went into the kitchen. Same gal when rolling up cutlery (beside where we were sitting) touching the eating end of several. Just seemed those protocols could be improved. Sorry.

We had a great time at Nonni's bistro on Friday night. We had the smoked salmon platter very good, and my husband had the maple duck breast and I had the rack of lamb on a bed of veggies and potatoes. Both were excellent but I think he rack of lamb was the best. Veggies were crisp and tasty. At the end we had a orange flavored creme brûlée which was excellent also. There were many diners outside on the street and next to the building and some inside at socially distant tables. Lovely.

We had a really nice lunch at Nonni's. I had the Grilled Salmon Salad, and it's the best! I also love their herb rolls. So yummy! You will not be disappointed if you choose to eat at Nonnie's! it was my bosses first time there and she love the French Onion Soup and the rolls. I love sitting in the booth by the window. Perfect spot for a nice lunch out!

Are you kidding???? Nonnie's Bistro was OHHH EMMM GEEE Good! Chef Jon must have fallen from heaven. This man should have his own tv show. I'll be back over, and over, and over, and over...

Downtown Pleasanton is the best kept secret in the Bay. Music everywhere. People were happy and the vibe is wonderful.

Can't wait to go back.

Host and server were most gracious
.Maple glazed duck breast was phenomenal! Patio was a shade loud as it was legitimately in the street. Not Nonis fault. Made a special night for my son spectacular. Not enough stars.
