The food was amazing. Everything was great. The service is quite slow. Even to be seated, was a slow process. Location is beautiful and they were very accommodating to children. I’d recommend as long as you aren’t pressed for time!

We had a wonderful experience here. The service was top notch, and they went out of their way to give us extra service. The food was excellent, and I would reccomend incorporating the spaghetti with Olive Oil and garlic, and garlic bread...so good!

I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is not fancy but cozy. The chef does a tremendous job in the kitchen. Appetizer, Main course and Desert were very delightful. Very tasty and flavors well coordinated.

Very great location and kids food selection. Service was vary slow as they were clearly understaffed. My table side negroni cocktail was not made tableside, but brought ready made. Long waits between phases, but we’re on vacation in Aruba so can’t really argue that we didn’t like waiting, right? Definitely worth a dinner during your stay.

It was very good. The food was tasty and the ambiance lives up to the Ritz-Carlton experience.

For a special, low key evening this place will fit the bill.

I really liked dinner with my wife at Casa Nonna, loved would be a strong word.

I chose this restaurant based on the reviews however this was by far the worst dining experience. The service was atrocious and the food was mediocre. My husband ordered chicken Parmesan which normally is a pretty safe meal, this was not made with the the typical chicken breast. I will never dine at this restaurant again. I can’t find anything good to say about this restaurant, not even that it was located in the Ritz Carlton. I did not feel it was up to the standard known at the Ritz.

Ambiance was great that’s where it ended. While our waiter was attentive, the food was a challenge. The seafood was sub par. The clams and mussels were nothing but shells. We had to ask the waiter for another order. No clams nor mussels in the shells. Unacceptable.

Then to top off the poor dinner, we were charged for another tables drinks. We had to get that cleared up.

The scampi was not fresh. 6 shrimp atop soggy toast.
Not fresh at all. Very poor flavor.
We will not return.

I used to go here when it was Solanio. Now it is completely different and was so good in fact that I went back during a second night on my visit last week. The Cheese and Meat plate is second to none. The pasta is so fresh, the best I've had in Aruba. The music and outdoor ambience is amazing! Will go back next year!

Our outdoor dining experience was lovely. The hostess and staff were extremely gracious and accommodating. The grounds of the Ritz Carlton are gorgeous. Live musicians entertained the dining guests. The food was incredible! The only drawback was that there were some issues in the kitchen and we had to wait a very significant amount of time for our dinner. The waitress did apologize and my husband and I did get a complimentary glass of wine for our delayed meal. I would certainly recommend the restaurant and would definitely come back for another fine meal!

I had eaten at Casa Nonna a few days before and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. However, On Tuesday, 4/16/19, the food was not as good even though I had the same dish. The service was excellent and catered to my friend's grandsons who had special dietary needs.

Overall, it was good, but, again, my friend and I thought the food was not as good as the other night we had eaten at the restaurant.

Another excellent experience at Casa Nonna. This is our second year dining here while on vacation. Being from New York we have high expectations concerning Italian restaurants and the food served. The wine list is extensive and the cocktails delivered perfectly. The appetizers- Calamari, Peperone Dolce and the Meatballs were outstanding. The mains consisted of Panzotti Di Zucca, Pici Alla Toscana and Frutti Di Mare all were delicious and prepared perfectly. Torta Di Ricotta and Amaro Nonino finished off a perfect dinner and evening.
