The restaurant was closed so lunch was not available. Maybe related to covid-19

Food very good - but completely offset by disorganized kitchen & service - waited for nearly an hour for main course after appetizer - had to ask twice for more ice tea. Piano player was quietly quaint.

Pleasant surprise. Best Italian we have had in a long time. An exceptional value with all the standards Italian offerings. Be sure to ask about the off menu items.

For those of you that came from the Champions area & old enough to remember Butarazzi‘s in the early days, the quality & ambience are similar.

Our new go to place for Italian.

A table for 8 on Christmas Eve is a challenge for any restaurant. Fortunately, Nona's is not "any" restaurant. Food was tasty and hot. Our server was more than accommodating for all of your changes and
went out of her way to ensure we had an excellent experience. Hats off to Nona's! We'll be back next year for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner, and of course for lunch and dinner throughout the year!

I ALWAYS enjoy dining at Nonna’s. I love the fact that this restaurant is spacious enough to hold a good amount of people and yet it doesn’t give you the feeling of a chain restaurant; it still offers the quaint/small locally owned restaurant ambiance/atmosphere. The service is good (to say the least); all the waitpersons who had waited on us for the last several visits were very professional and knowledgeable about the menu. This is definitely my go-to place when I’m craving for Italian food.

We love to sit at the bar at Nona’s. Piano music in the background is very relaxing. Great wine list. And the food is authentic and cooked perfectly. Service is outstanding / very personable, and the owner is there making sure everything goes well. For us Nona’s is on out “rotation” for dining out. With so many options in The Woodlands, that says a lot.

Nona's is one of the best Italian restaurants in The Woodlands area. The food is outstanding and the prices are reasonable. The owner, Juan, and his son Fernando are very friendly and pay special attention to their guests. Give Nona's a try - you'll be glad you did!

It was really wonderful. The workers was really nice and came to check to see if everything was ok. It didn't take long for the food to come out. Love the piano man. Eating and lovely music playing at the same time with a candle light dinner, it was more than amazing. We will be going back. Our waiter John, he was more than perfect, he was always coming by every so often to make sure we was ok. Now that's perfect

I love locally owned restaurants, and I especially love Nona's. Everything from the ambiance to the food is top drawer, and the piano player is an added bonus.

We were there to celebrate a birthday and our guest of honor found a wire in her salad. Luckily she saw the wire before ingesting or it could have turned into a real tradegy.

I also had to ask the waiter for ice tea a second time before getting it.

I prefer to not go back to this restaurant!

Four of us ate Dinner last weekend. The service was very prompt and available for requested items and drinks. My chicken with the crab sauce topping was very tasty, The chicken could have been more tender though. My wifes seafood linguine was very good. Our friends said their salmon was very good. The calamari appetizer was not very tender so it was in the mediocre range. The spinich/seafood dip was excellent. The reviews seem to be getting better and I am sure as they work out a few, in my amatuer opinion, minor food quality issues that they can be one of our favorite Conroe/The woodlands area restaurants.

We tried Nona's for the first time last week and really enjoyed it. Perfect for a date night, but also comfortable for families or friends night out. Nice ambience, great food and great service. The only thing we didn't really like was their cheesecake. We will definitely be back.

Loved the food, and the prices were great! Staff were attentive to keeping glasses topped off and bringing more bread and olive oil, but our waiter was not particularly friendly, and took a long time to take orders and to bring the check. There was a pianist, which was very enjoyable, but the sound level made it challenging to have conversation. Overall great dinner!

Maybe we will give it a shot and it was an unlucky night for Nona's BUT the service was slow and, in my opinion, rude. Half of the food was delicious the other half was season like nobody's business.
The ambiance, although it's trying to be dark and romantic turns out to be no so flattering and EXTREMELY loud. For anyone looking for the perfect place every time this does not appear to be it... but like I said I may give it another chance.

We had a group of 8 people looking for a good option for supper. With different ages and preferences, Nona's stood out as a well liked, flexible option. We were all pleased with the food, the service...the whole experience.
Fernando (our waiter) is talented; the right level of input and attention, without ever hovering. Our glasses were never empty...just right.
I ordered a customized Pesce de Mare and it was perfect - exactly as I requested, every component added to the complexity of the dish and it was delicious...proof that great Italian food doesn't actually require pasta.

Every part of Italy has its cuisine and every family their style and favorite dishes. This is the quest and dilemma for Italian restaurants. The atmosphere is lovely, inviting, and when we arrived very quiet. The pianist played soft music. Our waiter was engaging, helpful and generous. This is Italian food with owner Garcia’s flair. The fettuccine Alfredo was light and creamy — served in a separate dish — the fresh pasta elevated the dish to be the best we had. Nona’s Favorite chicken cutlets with artichokes is a classic Italian dish but tasted a bit briney and the cutlet could have been more tender. The penne was good, lots of peppers and onions, solid food in generous proportions. The cannoli were fantastic! We enjoyed our time here.
