Lovely place, but needs reservations quite ahead of the dinner date. It is a small and very popular place with apparently a lot of regulars. the food is outstanding, fresh, different and uniquely seasoned

I usually love Nonna! My favorite restaurant in Dallas! Last night was the exception to my usual experience as I often enjoy eating there. My reservation for two was for 5:30pm. After ordering a glass of wine (which was served promptly). We were served the chopped salad fairly soon which we enjoyed immensely. Then something must have happened in the kitchen behind the scenes because our entrees did not arrive until we asked for them at 7:10pm! My shrimp spaghettini came and while flavorful was slightly too salty. I cannot imagine what happened and feel disappointed to say the least. Normally, We ask for David who is an outstanding waiter who gives us outstanding service with congenial, prompt, and professional style. Would love to know the reason for last night’s disappointment.

First time here, heard about the white clam pie. Did not disappoint!

Sergio was a very attentive waiter, right at our table the moment we had an empty glass or plate.

Coming back soon to try some of the other dishes.

Losing its edge?...NOT! Impeccable service coupled with inventive, sumptuous cuisine in a non-descript neighborhood storefront...YES! The Calabrese sausage main may have been best in show...though potentially topped by a killer Nutella cheesecake. Oh, and did I mention the broad variety of value-priced Italian gems on the wine list? We will be back.

Overall very good experience - not all dishes "worked." Sformato was incredible, but Sausage and Polenta was dry and unimaginative.

I feel like there is a bit of a recovery this on this last visit. We have loved Nonna for many years. We felt a little dip in food (not service) over the past year or so, COVID effects notwithstanding. It was never bad, just a recognizable step back from wonderful. It seems to have regained it footing and is again excellent. Best Italian cuisine in Dallas.

Had a great dinner at Nonna! The pizza is absolutely AMAZING (definitely a must try when you go)! The wait staff was very nice and very attentive. I had the flounder, and I must say it was a bit smaller than I expected and the grilled chart that came with it was a bit salty. All in all, we have a great time and plan on returning soon!

Waited a little bit for our reservation, which isn’t a huge deal. The broccolini in the Linguine Vongole was way too overpowering and ruined the dish. Aperol Spritz was made incorrectly as well. Lots of hype for an underwhelming dinner.

I love Nonna- the food is boutique Italian- high quality and dishes you won’t find everywhere. The ambiance is cozy and chic, casual but upscale, and the service is great. Wine and cocktails are curated just like the food. This is the perfect small Italian restaurant.

I had not been back in year with COVID issues. I joined for a Friday lunch and was immediately recognized by a server. The food was then as good as the Hospitality. Clearly the BEST ITALIAN restaurant in Dallas.

Possibly the best pizza in Dallas - we’re still thinking about the mushroom and the clam. Pastas, desserts, cocktails and wine are also excellent.

Wonderful spot for a nice night out at a great value. Since it’s pasta, it’s relatively cheap, but the ambiance and service are top notch. Highly recommend for special occasions or just a fun date night.

We loved the ambiance of Nonna- it’s tiny and every detail was considered. Service was great, wine recommendation was on point and reasonably priced and food was wonderful. Only downside is we missed tiramisu for dessert on the seasonal menu. But that’s personal preference only. Highly recommend!

We were so happy to be at a restaurant---especially Nonna. We have mostly stayed at home during the pandemic but when I requested an outdoor table at Nonna, they rose to the occasion. We bundled up and came ready for milder November temps and we were so pleased that Nonna was able to accommodate our request. The tortellini and linguine with clams as well as the roasted cauliflower were all delicious, as always. As the pandemic continues, it would be great if Nonna could not only continue to offer outdoor seating but also make the outdoor dining experience slightly more ambient--a few large plants, candles on the table and string lights could really transform the space and make the most of the space.

Just feels after all these years, it feels as if it is slipping a bit. Not sure why. More types of pasta made in house seem to be getting thicker and gummier. Just not what long term customers grew to count on. Sauces still extraordinary. Unclear what has happened resulting in the change.
