Most folks were outside, so there were only two tables of us in a large room. Well, at first, then others filtered in. The food was really great.

I Nonni has been my favorite metro area restaurant for years. Last night’s dinner was no exception. The Romanesco salad dressing was a too heavy on the anchovies and capers compared to past times I’ve ordered it, but otherwise the food was exceptional, as always. We sat outside where there were no bugs at all, and the atmosphere was glorious. Lovely service. Everything wonderful.

Menu has become very limited. Our guest ordered a simple pasta with sausage. They forgot the sausage. Did not offer to remake the dish. Took 15 minutes to bring the hot sausage to put in the cold pasta. Did not offer to take it off the bill and barely apologized. Will not go back. Used to be much better.

Service was terrible. Long waits for our waitress to get to our table. Yet another meal impacted by COVID is my guess. I just might stop eating out until things return to pre-covid normal.

Even with the limited COVID menu, there was a lot to choose from, our waiter, Daniel was great with suggestions and sommelier, Hoyt (?) was right on with his wine recommendation! Add to that, the wonderful ambiance, it was a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary!

The ambiance, service and food were exceptional!! We were sad the calamari wasn’t available but our server, Alissa, suggested the cauliflower and bruschetta which were incredible. My husband and I fought over the last piece of cauliflower. We had the scallops and fettuccine which were both bursting with unbelievable flavors. We also had the salted caramel tart for dessert which was delicious. Always feel transported to Italy on the lovely patio, wonderful service and incredible food. Thank you!!

Menu has changed, no more small plates on patio. Salad was disappointing, bag lettuce vs. pieces of romaine and was not good. Out of calamari. They did not add any extra shrimp or mussels to seafood dish, not a good value for a couple of shrimps, a couple of mussels and two clams. Mushroom pasta was good but small portion for small amount. The new changes the owner has made was disappointing.

We go regularly to this restaurant for their Happy Hour which has hitherto been fabulous!
However, we learned yesterday that the Happy Hour menu has been drastically changed, and not for the better! The server said they had changed it 3 weeks ago, and it was the first time we had seen the restaurant almost empty, especially on a Friday evening. Very disappointing as this was previously a 5 Star venue.
Thanks for listening.

Made reservation for patio, but unfortunately wasn’t available due to staffing issues. Restaurant did proactively inform me and chose to move reservation to indoor dining room. Although quite loud, food was delicious and enjoyed.

They were very understaffed, which is not their fault at this time.
The place could use a good organizing. Looking out onto the patio you see a garbage can, linen bag and a used propane cylinder...
The food was solid and the bartender/sommelier took his time with us- even though he was slammed.

We will be back for sure especially when everybody gets staffed up!

We had a really excellent experience. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing and the food and drinks were excellent. The portion size was much bigger than expected too.
