Italian
From Sicily with love...

We are an old school, Italian family-owned restaurant. Our recipes are straight out of granny's cooking book!
Our story begins in Sicily at the foothills of Mount Etna, our ever-active volcano that lights up the night sky with its red, scary, majestic beauty. This is where our Family comes from: the very center of the Mediterranean Sea, full of blinding sunlight, continuously blowing in unique scents and aromas from the past. And this is what we try and bring to Your table.

When you enter La Norma you are not just a customer, you are our guest of honor. And we take hospitality very seriously in Sicily.

    A small but cosy typical italian with so friendly service. From the welcome to leaving, this restaurant is exceptional. Our Sicilian server Alesandro was superb!!! Fun, friendly, knowledgeable and the right amount of interaction to add to the experience. Alesandro also got me dancing during the live music!!! Wowww Food wise... FAIR! I’ve travelled and this is one of the best restaurant. Tiramisu simply stunning. Thank you Alesandro!!! We will be back!!!

    We enjoyed a very romantic outdoor dinner at this Long Boat Key gem. Roberto supplied live dinner piano selections while we ate under the stars in the glow of the fire pit. Paula welcomed us in, made some suggestions for dinner. We started with a delicious pizza with very thinly sliced, eggplant and ricotta - mouth watering We split a very fresh house salad while enjoying a Peroni beer. It was a tossup between the Perrone and a glass of Chianti. Our entrées were exquisite. My wife enjoyed the homemade gnocchi. She is a stiff critic since her grandma made the very best Leslie thoroughly enjoyed the light gnocchi covered with a delicious burrata. I had very tender veal Parmesan served with a side of homemade pasta. It was divine. We were shocked when the owner of La Norma stopped by our table to make sure that everything was perfect for us. She was very sweet and sat down to dine with her family. We had to take a pass on dessert but promised to save room for it when we returned… later this week!

    La Norma Ristorante & PizzeriaResponded on January 10, 2023And the dessert will be there waiting for you! It's been a great pleasure hosting you guys: thank so much for choosing La Norma, we are so happy to read that the food and service were up to your expectations and that you had a good evening. I look forward to seeing you again soon. All the best, Daniela

    Our meal at La Norma was outstandingly delicious! One of the best chicken marsala and piccata meals we've had, including in the North End of Boston! The house made pasta that came with the meals was fresh and tasty. Service was attentive and left nothing lacking, and the dining room was attractive and very clean. We will definitely eat here again, and recommend it highly. The only change that could be made for an improved atmosphere, is for the source of perfumed scent in the dining room to be eliminated.

    This was our first time here and couldn’t be more pleased. Even without NO special event to celebrate, my husband and I felt like we were celebrating something. The garden area was so romantic and inviting. Even though it started to rain while we were enjoying our appetizer, the staff helped us transition inside without any trouble. Dustin, our server presented as very professional attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The owner Daniella, ( straight from Italy with a wonderful accent but fluent in English). She was sure to greet and introduce herself to every patron. She spent plenty of time with us speaking of her travels and life in London, etc. her family happened to be there eating dinner as well. This added to the real family owned (not investors) who give their all to their ownership The venue is adorable, newly renovated with seating for about 35 people with additional room outside. They have an in house bar and white table cloths. They do offer pizza but not a Pizzeria. We had the Chicken Picatta and Veal Salumbucca. I recommend both. Their garlic bread was delicious and a nice touch. A side of fedacinni comes with the dish. We finished with cappuccino and a nice after dinner drink ( gratis of owner). Even though a bit of a ride from Bradenton, we will make it back. They do take reservations. The new owners have only been in this country for four months. A real jem. Even in LBK with all other high end eateries.

    The food entrees were delicious. Minor thing: the cannolis were better last year. The service staff were friendly & responsive to our needs.

    La Norma Ristorante & PizzeriaResponded on November 4, 2022Dear John, thanks very much for your visit and for this kind review: it's great to read that you had a good time dining with us. Also, thanks for your feedback on the cannoli: as Sicilians, we take it very seriously and we'll make sure to go back to our usual standard! We look forward to seeing you again soon. All the best, Daniela

    La Norma was disappointing for us again. Our second time dining here for dinner in the past year where we hoped for the best. The service was excellent; Amanda took great care of us; kind attentive, and offered us a fine Tiramisu for dessert; terrific. the Busboys were very good as well. However, the food is not to write home about; not remotely close to what you find in Italy or Sicily in flavor or style. Highly overpriced as well.

    La Norma Ristorante & PizzeriaResponded on November 1, 2022Dear Jack, first off, thanks very much for dining at La Norma and for writing this review: we do appreciate your feedback and we will certainly pass on the compliments to our great staff. We are sorry that the experience was not up to your expectations: we try hard to please every guest but we do understand that each palate is different. As for the price, we benchmark ourselves with our peers regularly: we feel we are adequately priced, given the general backdrop. Regards, Daniela

    We tried the specials. Amazing pumpkin raviolis and pesto lasagna. Both perfect.
