We had an AMAZING EXPERIENCE at Cassa Nonna, Aruba. The food and drinks were delicious but it was the extremely attentive service that we loved most. Ray the manager is a gem, he made sure we had a wonderful meal, and that all of the guests were well taken care of! We will be returning like so many lovely people we met! A must for any Aruba vacation!

Ordered a medium rare steak and it came very rare. Asked for them to correct it and the chef brought it back as ‘Medium’. Frustrating considering it was over $60.

The service and food at Casa Nonna are impeccable. From the moment they greet you at the reception to the moment you depart you are treated like royalty. The food is fresh made and delicious. The Ritz Carlton property is amazing too! It made our Aruba trip that more special.

Great service, atmosphere and food. We sat outside near the fire and there was a woman singing and a man playing guitar. Great for date night but could always bring the kids. The servers were very attentive and food was large portions and delicious.

Excellent food, service and ambience. Can’t miss dinner at this place when visiting Aruba. Highly recommend it. The pulpino ( grilled octopus salad) and spaghetti pomodoro was delicious! And the tiramisu was just scrumptious.

Truly a disappointment - food generally uninspired and very small portions. Meatballs and the fried calamari were very good but every other dish was at best ordinary except for the price which was very high for everything. The flat bread brought to the table was also very good and the italian cheesecake was of questionable origin as taste and texture were more like lousy NY cheesecake. Will not be returning

Food and service were very good but I did receive a bad mussel in my Frutti di Mare. Smelled it when I was removing the shells and thought it was me but knew it when I ate it. Otherwise the food and service were very good. I did not complain so the staff had no way of knowing

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!

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.
