This was our first time here. It was for a birthday dinner. It was hard at first to see where to go in. Parking is limited. Had to park at Whole Foods. Its a smaller quaint contemporary restaurant. It was full which means that it is good. Noise level is low so you can have a great conversation at your table. All of the food was excellent. Especially the Maine Lobster Ravioli. The best lobster I have had in the 32 years of living in Dallas. The salads were great. The Pinot Nero "Red Angel Moon Light" wine was great, as well as the Birthday desert a nice treat by Nonna. The waitress was friendly but I think still learning a few things. We all have to learn. I hope other people realize that too. Also our salad and appetizer came at the same time, it was another wait person who brought those items. We will definitely be back.

Nonna has some of the best Italian food I have had, including meals consumed in Italy. The pasta with truffles and cream was exquisite. The waiter was very helpful in with menu and wine options and pacing of the meal. We were never rushed and felt we had the evening to enjoy the wonderful food. The use of local ingredients enhances the meal. Hope to return soon

We come to Dallas 2-3 times a year and try to eat at Nona. In the past I thought the food and service were spot on, this visit - not so much

This place always delivers. In the past year it has become one of my favorites, and I have eaten there probably 10 times now. Evolving menu, perfect dirty martini, exciting dishes every time, and do not forget the semifredo as the finishing touch! As a recommended bonus, request to in Dave’s section...and soon you may begin referring to this neighbored gem as “Dave’s Diner” too.

Nonna is a perfect boutique restaurant with delicious hand made pasta that is flavor-full! We started out with the Blue Crab claws in a red tomato reduction that was finger-licking good. I enjoyed the white bean soup which was hearty and had a little zest to it. We then had the 1st pick white truffle pasta that delicately hit the perfect note of flavor. My husband had the seafood pasta with shrimp, perfectly seasoned with fresh seafood aroma. I had the pasta with vodka sauce, my favorite with curly pasta! My husband had the chocolate lava cake with ice cream which is a must! I had the semi-frozen pistachio ice cream which took "rockey road" to a new level. Perfect for creamy/crunchy caramel ice cream lovers. Paired with Port and laate harvest white wine, it was perfection!

First time to Nonna’s. Interesting location - strip center across from Whole Foods. Inside decor is great, though.
Had Little Gems salad - so good - was thinking about it the next day! Tortellini was good and the red snapper was also good. Would probably choose a different pasta next time - the crispy pancetta or bacon type meat was the seller for the tortellini so could probably get a pasta I like better if I just wanted the bacon type topping 👍🏼😀! Will go back. I would rate it as good or better than Lucia and MUCH easier to get into. Oh, the bread (like pizza oven crust) with sides of olive oil and balsamic vinegar is SO good.

Food wasn't bad and our waiter was nice but the table became somewhat messy as the meal progressed and wasn't cleaned up properly. We also told them we were celebrating a special occasion and got no recognition of that as other places do with a nice flourish. Not terrible but we had to drive a bit to get here and will not return. Probably a really good place to frequent if it is in your neighborhood.

Nonna never disappoints. We had 3 different pasta dishes. All were amazing. We had 2 desserts. Same. Everything is so fresh and original. Love the fresh bread. The aranccini appetizer also wonderful. Just a great place for a special occasion. Low key and elegant.

The food was fabulous and everyone there was so friendly. I especially loved the bartender Christy. It's a little small, so I'd recommend reservations. We actually went back 2 nights later because we can walk and it's really cute and delicious.

We greatly enjoyed our meal at Nonna's. The staff was exceptional. Very warm and attentive. We felt genuinely welcome. The noise level was a bit higher than we prefer but not unpleasant.Everything we had was unique and tasty. I had the Quail in porchetta with Elis Stansel's rice, shiitakes, sweet corn, hot & sweet peppers. The quail was largely deboned with just the leg bone in place as best I could tell. First time I have had quail and I think there were three breasts and three legs but not sure. There was enough quail to be filling and the accompaniments were very tasty. Great flavor. My wife had the Gulf Red Snapper with Cherry Tomato Salmoriglio & alubia bianca beans which she enjoyed. The Gulf shrimp with pepper crema, cherry tomatoes, marinated squash and soft herbs and Sformato of summer squash with slow roasted tesa, arugula & black cherry tomatoes were equally good.

We left feeling we had a very special meal and will return.

The menu changes daily. Everything that we had was absolutely delicious. I look forward to going again and again to try everything I can on the menu. Everything tasted extremely fresh. The wait staff is knowledgeable on food and wine pairings and it's fun to see how passionate they are about the menus. Great spot!

We had an amazing dining experience with David. We let him take the lead on ordering whatever starters and flavors of choice with the exception on pork and Cilantro which we do not eat. Each dish was cooked to perfection. Fresh baked pita bread with olives were served with the drinks. We were served the squash blossoms first, which were light and crisp with ricotta cheese inside and parsley shaved topping. The rigatoni has a burst of chicken broth flavor with each bite and the fresh little halved tomatoes were the perfect pop that we almost asked for more on the side as we wanted them in each bite! The lasagniette was delicate and savory, a perfect combination without overfilling. We were happily surprised when the bill came as it was such an amazing meal for the cost. The flavors were better than some 1 Star Michelin restaurants we have been to. We will be coming back much more often!

Everything was wonderful, EXCEPT the hostess must have been new because was was determined, and I mean bent on seating someone RIGHT next (less than a foot away) to us even though the restaurant had plenty of seating. VERY irritating.

If you're looking for a huge hunk of overly cheesy lasagna for ten bucks please go elsewhere. This is the real deal. Delicate handmade pastas in light sauces, fantastic white clam pie, lobster ravioli just to mention a few. We order as many mid sized pastas as we can eat and share them, as each one is special.
Not inexpensive but totally worth the price. Again, if your game is Maggianos or Olive Garden I would stay away. The best real Italian in DFW.

Went for restaurant week. All appetizers and entrees were great. Down from 5 to 4 because desserts (3 different ones) were just okay. Service could have been better too. Waited a while to get drink refills twice. Brought wrong drink once. Stuff like that.
