Mio Nonno Trattoria - Victory Park
The pastas were excellent - we had the risotto and lamb pappardelle. We had a nice brisket tá as an appetizer. Nice selection of wines by the glass as well.
The only negative was sitting next to the door when it is cold outside. We arrived around 6 pm and the place was only a quarter filled (a few tables remained open when we left) and we were seated a few tables away from and to the right of the door. There is quite a cold draft when the front door opens — so ask to sit away from the front if you can!
Dinner before a concert. The kids and I truly enjoyed dinner. Our server was very helpful and all her recommendations were delicious. We will be back. They have vegetarian options as well. They also have a nice wine list.
Only thing was our server was kinda rude.... She was a little snappy and was making us feel like we were bothering her by being there.
Love this place!
Staff is great.
Food is tasty.
Always an excellent choice before hockey game.
The food here is great, but this place consistently has issues with service on nights when there are events at the AAC. I've given them 3 tries and sent feedback regarding improvements needed, but it's always the same thing -- overburdened servers and interminable waits for food and for the check. I'll be dining elsewhere from now on.
I am indifferent on recommending this place. The food was great but the service was not good. The waiter was rarely at our table so it was hard to get drinks. I asked for shrimp to be added to my pasta dish and the waiter brought me ONE piece of shrimp on the dish. I did ask a different server (because ours was never around) and they said it’s usually 5 pieces but he specifically wrote the ticket as one?!? They did bring out five once it was ready. If we had a different waiter my review would probably be a great one. Hopefully he was just having a bad day or was new?
Made reservations to have dinner with out of town guests, we arrive and they walked us through the restaurant and out the door to a table in the corner outside and it was 55 degrees. We didn’t even get seated under a heater. Drink service took longer actual food arriving. Our table was next to a walkway that went to the alley. Very embarrassing. I asked the hostess are we sitting outside and she looked at me like I was a complete idiot and where else would she put us.
Food great. Service great.
The restaurant looks good inside, nothing fancy but cozy. There was complimentary valet parking next door, which is a plus. The food, however, was average: my pasta was overcooked and the tomato sauce uninspiring (a little bit in the acidic side). My companion's pasta was a little better, even though there were a little too many capers in it. We had a drink that was good but overpriced at $15. Considering the number of alternatives in the area (downtown, uptown, Deep Elum, etc.), I would not recommend it.
They really didn’t give me a large glass of wine. They barely put any in the cup
Came here accidentally as I thought I was booking another restaurant - we were all pleasantly surprised at the happy accident.
I had an extra charge on my credit card for about 25.00. I asked to have it credited it back but that hasn’t happened yet. Eat here often, but last time my credit card was compromised and I had to get a new one. Something fishy is happening there.
Nice restaurant; great location for a pre-concert dinner. The food and drinks were great. Our waiter wasn’t very good. He made several “rude” comments throughout the night.
Excellent service. Amazing food.
They ran out of some items on menu (chicken & lasagna). Restroom was dirty and there were no paper towels and toilet paper. Water glass refills were left unattended (took too long to refill water).
Food was very authentic Italian. Delicious we will be back
Great service and food!
Great food. Great service.
Great new dining!!! Recommend the gnocchi
Food inconsistent quality versus last visit, service forgetful, eg, bread, water refills, drink reordering.
Very good experience! Great waitress!
I was very clear that I CANNOT have any gluten containing ingredients on my plate. When my entree arrived, it had bread slices on top. I had to wait for it to be re-made. Also, my coffee was barely warm. We were on our way to the Stars’ game and couldn’t wait for more coffee to be made.
Everyone ordered something different and we all tasted each other’s dish. Everyone agreed that everything was absolutely scrumptious! The waiter was on point and we will return when we are in the area!
We waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table to ask if we wanted a drink.
They seemed very disorganized. Food was mediocre at best
Didn’t get our drinks until we were done eating our dinner. Then we ordered a second glass of wine and that glass of wine tasted rancid. Had a poor experience at another location as well. We won’t them again.
Made reservations in advance of concert at AAC. Table was waiting for us. Food and wine were excellent. Very noisy but we were able to converse easily.
Dallas Stars home opener night- terrible service. Had to wait 25 minutes to get water and then asked someone to take our order so we could get going to the game. We spent an hour and half there and had to eat very quickly to avoid missing the start of the game. Food was great.
It is a great place for dinner when you are headed to American Airlines Center for an event!
Just enjoy and walk right across the street!
We like coming to Mio Nonno and even though we were there on an Event night the food was still delicious. The salad was cold and crisp, the pastas were al dente and served steaming hot! Our waitress, Taylor, was super friendly and efficient. The only problem was it was VERY hot in the restaurant - maybe something was wrong with the A/C?? Our Diavolo Pizza was almost too spicy to eat and that made the restaurant feel even hotter!
The food was fantastic and the service was very good.
We were seated outside with many other guests but it became clear quickly that no one outside was receiving good service. Most of us sat for 20 min or more before we had to flag down someone just to bring water. The waiter we flagged down said he wasn’t even supposed to have any outside tables. He took our order and never brought anything to us. After an hour of waiting (we were supposed to go to a concert and though leaving would just lead us to another busy restaurant) we finally got up and left as did many other guests outside.
Additionally, they marked us as no-show to open table when the maitre’d clearly clicked on my name before she sat us down.
I’ll never darken their doorsteps again.
This dinner was right before a big concert at AAC and the restaurant was packed. We were 15 minutes late for our reservation but they quickly found us a table.
We mentioned the concert and that we were a little rushed and our server Taylor took great care of us, so we could make the show.
The food was excellent and we will definitely be going back when we won’t be so rushed, so that we can really enjoy the entire experience.
I so want to love this place - the food is good and SUPER convenient to AA Center and the Lexus garage. I thought the AC issue was a one-off but 3 months later and still way too hot! Our first table had water dripping out of the ceiling right next to my shoulder (they had a napkin there, so they knew) and they looked upset when we asked to be re-seated. They did not have enough waitstaff, our poor server was tackling tables inside and on the patio; she tried but was overwhelmed. Also marked us as a no-show on OpenTable even though I asked; received the email while there and went back to host stand and asked them to correct. Noticed another reviewer had the same experience. The food is really, really good, it is a shame they can't get the rest of it right.
We have been here a few times & food & service has always been very good. Unfortunately, on our last visit both food & service were sub par. Service was up & down, it took a long time for someone to wait on us. The patio was a disaster, most tables had dirty dishes, leftovers & several checks! We had to send the pasta back for being undercooked, (crunchy, not al dente) the eggplant was over cooked, & the dessert we we given for our trouble, was dry & lacked filling. I hope this was just a bad nigh and not a reflection of future dining!
Great food if you ever get served. Busy night but they are located next to American Airlines arena! Took 45 minutes to get a waiter. They brought warm water and spilled oil all over table. The wait staff looked dazed and confused and the manager was too busy chatting with friends. The food was very good but service kills it!
I love this restaurant. The food never disappoints. The ambiance and service are top notch. Delicious Italian entrees and appetizers coupled with creative, refreshing cocktails from their bar, are such a treat. I’ve been to all of their locations and this is my favorite. Our waitstaff was very attentive and helpful. Be sure to make a reservation during peak hours or sit at the bar, either way you will love the experience!
We went to Mio Nonno prior to a concert and were extremely pleased! The server asked if we were attending an event to expedite the order. The appetizer and salads came out together which was fine. The entrees were amazing and the GM came over and asked us how things were and if we needed anything else. All of the food and entire experience was amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
While the food was ok, the service was subpar. The food is too expensive for its quality. Servers seemed to be more concerned about their social status than the customers.
SO AMAZING! The food was so yummy and the ambience was perfect. Great night out with friends.
The food and drinks were amazing. However the service was a little lacking. It seemed to take a long time to get glasses of water and we were told we were going to get bread and then it never showed up. I know it’s a newer location so maybe they’re still working out the kinks.
