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.

Everything we had was delicious! Loved the in-house smoked salmon. Jon, the owner, visited the table and entertained us with fun stories. We will definitely make Nonni's our new go-to restaurant.

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.

Pleasantly surprised, the Owner was awesome and custom-made my caesar salad and it was delicious! The special which was a fillet was also cooked to perfection. Great experience and I will be back.

Love nonni’s ambiance is great. Wine was good and good value.
Soup could’ve been a bit warmer and waiter a bit friendlier but otherwise all was good

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.

We were seated outside in the sun without being asked if the table was acceptable; the table was unsteady. We moved ourselves to a different table. After being served drinks and waiting, it appeared no one was aware our food order had not been taken. The music began, which could have been a nice touch, but it was too loud and very much in the foreground rather than in the background. The food was acceptable but have had better lunches.

Always a nice experience there. Service can be a bit slow, but if you are there to enjoy, relax and watch people walking by then it is more European dining in its pace.

As always, Nonni’s was delicious. I met a friend who I hadn’t seen in a while and we both loved the experience. I wanted a healthy bowl of grains and veggies, something not on the menu, but they accommodated me!! A bowl of barley with steamed veggies was perfect. Thanks Jon and staff!! I’ll be back soon!
