This was my fourth visit to this restaurant. It is a gem in midtown. The restaurant is large and provides ample room at tables, unlike many NYC restaurants. On the last visit we were greeted like old friends and the manager was attentive to our table. We had a terrific meal! The gnocchi with lamb sausage is to kill for and the wine list gave us some terrific choices, like a lovely Barbarescco. We were celebrating a friends birthday and the restaurant graciously served us a round of Prosecco and a dessert for the table. My friends were all impressed at the level of service and attention received and they all commented on the deliciousness of the food. I will be back to this gem of a restaurant!

We had our daughters 5th birthday dinner here. The food was delicious and service was wonderful! We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine, appetizers and a delicious meal. It was perfect for the whole family. We felt like we were getting a fine dining night out but it was kid-friendly and my daughter loved the food! The staff brought out a piece of chocolate cake with a candle and sang happy birthday making it such a special dinner for her. Highly recommend!

My mother-in-law and her college friends were very impressed with the service at Casa Nonna. They were brought glasses of champagne in celebration of their reunion after the hostess learned they had chosen Casa Nonna since they had enjoyed it so much a year or two ago. We continue to recommend Casa Nonna to friends who want a classy yet not overcrowded place to relax and enjoy a varied Italian menu perfect for big eaters as well as light eaters.

The restaurant was very busy with diners and parties. Somehow our service broke down. After our food was served, we were forgotten. Had to summon another server and the manager. We have dine there many times before, and the service is normally excellent. We will not let this one lapse affect our decision to go back. The food is excellent. The buyer it ravioli are the best!

Cassandra Nona not only has good food, but is one of the very few good restaurants near penn station and the garment center. We had a lovely lunch. I had pasta - authentic and fresh. My friend had crab cakes which came over a chopped vegetable ratatouille type base. Looked delicious and she loved it. Definitely worth checking out.

Very disappointed after reading some of the reviews of this restaurant. Food was nothing special and overpriced for what we were served and the waiter seemed to forget we were there a few times during the course of our meal. The best part was the bread they brought out before our meal. We won't be going back.

Our group had a delightful time at Casa Nonna. Our server made every effort to ensure that we were taken care of, and we followed his recommendations for the right pizza as appetizer with great results! One of our party got a huge slab of Cod, expertly cooked and presented beautifully; one got a perfect skirt-steak, marinated and cooked to perfection; one enjoyed the chicken over salad immensely, and I loved the eggplant-and-lamb sausage gnocchi. The portions are correct-sized, as opposed to huge, the service is great, and the prices are very reasonable for that level of quality in that part of town.

Great find just a quick walk from Penn Station. We received a nice warm greeting upon arriving and were quickly seated. The restaurant was large, yet very comfortable. The wait staff was extremely attentive and the service was excellent. We had cured meats and cheese for an appetizer and the foccia was phenomenal. The fresh pasta bolognese was perfect for our entree. Will certainly be back.

Not our first visit and better than ever! The food is just outstanding. Their focaccia is unique and super delicious. Bruschetta choices, just wonderful. Their ricotta is incredible. Gnocchi, light and the sauce quite tasty.

The waiter, overhearing that it was my wife's birthday, treated us to Proseco, shortbread cookies, chocolate tort and vanilla gelato. Perfect ending to a perfect meal.

We had to wait 20 minutes to be seated when we had a reservation. The back area was closed for a private party. Food was OK but service was uneven. It is hardly a small intimate environment - big loud open spaces with many large tables of diners. The food was very expensive and there were no reasonably priced bottles of wine.
In NYC you can find scores of charming Italian restaurants with better service and reasonable prices.

Great place to gather in midtown, convenient to Penn Station and PATH train if you're meeting folks who are trekking in. The fresh oven-baked bread filled with cheese--given for free after you order--alone is worth the price of admission. Our group of four feasted on bruschetta, margherita pizza, gnocchi, pappardelle al porcini, and chicken parm. Be sure to order a bottle of wine, as they have a worthy selection. Save room for dessert; we enjoyed the pear tart, panna cotta, and pistachio gelato.

We had a 6:15 reservation, were seated by 6:18, placed orders for wine, 4 salads and two pastas, one appetizer, and told waiter we had to be out by 7:30 for a show. Salads and wine came promptly but by 7:15, still no pasta. Waiter kept saying Food would arrive “any minute” but it never did. At 7:30, Manager came over, comped the wine and salads and apologized, saying there was problem in the kitchen. The restaurant was only 1/2 full, so don’t understand what happened. We left hungry, and unhappy. Won’t be going back.

When we arrived I made sure to let the waiter know that we had reservations for a play at 8pm. He said it was not problem and they would make sure we were served in plenty of time. Our service was very slow and I reminded him about our play reservations. He blamed our order being slow on a steak dinner. Meanwhile, patrons who came in after us were being served. That being said, we were served at 7:35 and rushed. The manager came over and gave us a 20% discount on our meal. I would have rather enjoyed the meal! Needless to say we were late for our play.

Outstanding as always, dine there every time we are in NYC. Creative cuisine and excellent service. We had our 14 year old granddaughter with us this time and she really enjoyed it. Make it a point to go there every Veterans Day, on that day the veteran's meal is free, that is greatly appreciated.

It was my first time eating at Casa Nonna and I will definitely return! We celebrated my mom's birthday there and the staff went above and beyond to make her experience special. She received a birthday card upon arrival and an array of desserts with a special birthday treatment. And on top of everything, the food was amazing as well! It was the best restaurant experience and service I've had in a while.

Was disappointed in the size of the portions that were served for the prices that are charged. My husband and I shared a self made 4 course meal. Our cost was over $120.00., no beverages. Started our meal with a beet salad, it was good, not special and a small portion for the amount charged. The squash ravoli was the best part of the meal and fairly priced. The over cooked rack of lamb chops, only 2 double chops was way overpriced. Dessert was ok with their seasonal pana cotta. There are better restaurants in the area, will probably not return.
