It was a wonderful night with great ambience, good food and just an overall good time. I think the wait staff worked hard but it took 35+ minutes to get salads and another 30 minutes+ to get our entrees. I think they need more servers to handle the number of diners.

This is a Hidden Gem! Excellent food and staff. Beautiful quiet outdoor seating area in the back. Chef very accommodating to food preparation preferences.
I recommend mussels and salmon with pureed corn. Panna cotta for dessert!

I cannot rave enough about Nonna Carola! The food, the ambiance, the staff were incredible. We sat outside and loved every minute of our time there. I also went to see the upstairs room for my sister’s baby shower and we are about to finalize our booking! Regina is the sweetest soul and a pleasure to be around. I am really excited about going again for dinner and also excited about celebrating my sister’s baby shower and getting to work with Regina.

This was our first visit, and we were lucky to be seated outdoors, which is wonderful. The four of us all had salads to start … all fresh with light dressings. My wife had an eggplant rollotini appetizer as her entree, which she said was delicious. My friend had the fish in a pepperanata sauce that was one of the best fish dishes he (or any of us) had tasted. Absolutely fantastic. My steak dish was yummy, although not quite as memorable as the fish.

Our server recommended a wonderful red Italian wine that seemed fairly priced. Desserts were excellent.

Overall, the experience was terrific. Nonna Carola is a great addition to the Mamaroneck Avenue food scene, and a restaurant we will 100% visit again. On our way out near closing time, we met Chef Phil who shared his philosophy and plan to frequently change the menu. He’s eager to experiment with flavors and hopes his “regulars” will try out new things each time. We hope to be in that category.

Enjoyed the aperol spritz to begin. Ceasar salad was
A bit garlicky for my taste. The artic char was delicious.
My husband has the chicken parm he said it was a bit too cheesy for his liking but he enjoyed it.

This place was wonderful! We’ve been waiting to try it and it did not disappoint. The drinks were great. The homemade bread was phenomenal. We ordered the chicken parm appetizer and cheese platter for an app. Rib eye for me, mussel risotto for my date! 10/10 will def be going back. The vibe and atmosphere was amazing.

My wife and I had an exceptional dinner, with a lot of creative touches. The menu is not huge but has plenty of interesting dishes to choose from. My wife had a mushroom pasta dish with grated, pickled shallots and I had a mussels risotto with crunchy garlic chips and pea shoots. Both were superb. Yes, you pay more than you would in a neighborhood Italian place, but the food is well worth it. We sat comfortably indoors, but the outdoor dining in the back seemed welcoming as well. It was a birthday occasion and this place absolutely fit the bill. We will go again soon.

We had a nice Mother's day meal, food was terrific but the only snafu the cheesecake wasn't delivered. Instead of telling us and giving us the option to change our dessert order, we ended up waiting (too long) for someone to explain why no dessert bf the manager apologized, comped a meal, and finally served desserts sans the cheesecake.

It's a beautiful space to have a meal, lovely lighting and colors. Unfortunately, the food and service was fair at best for the price. The portions were small, the pesto pasta dish I had was very dry, there was hardly any pesto and the chicken in the dish was overcooked. It was also way too loud, it was hard to have a conversation. Overall, I was very disappointed.

Hello SEMP, Thank you for your honest review. I am sorry that our food and service did not meet your expectations. I would love to invite you back to have our homemade Fusilli with pesto and a glass of wine. In regards of service could you give us more details, so we can learn from our mistakes. We always strive to succeed our guest expectations. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Best, Bernard Gamsie General Manager 914.899.3130
