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.

Overall, a very satisfying Restaurant Week experience.

The special menu has a good selection. Really appreciate the creativity on the menu offering and on the plating. Special call out these two dishes:
1. Baugh Farm peaches with gorgonzola crema, pecans, red endive and balsamic - stunning presentation and refreshing taste, highly recommended for the summer time.
2. Gulf Snapper with salsa cruda of heirloom & cherry tomatoes, EVOO, red wine vinegar, red onion & basil - not only it is beautiful to look at, but also the fish was cooked to perfection: crisp skin and tender, moist meat.

Too hard to compliment when there’s so much to compliment for, everything was extraordinary. Only thing I would like is a little more enhanced ambiance

Food was excellent - service seemed a little slow at first though, even though the restaurant was only half full. No one approached our table for 10 minutes after we were seated. Picked up after that. Always difficult to get an open table reservation for normal evening hours even though it wasn't full as we left. Perhaps might be better to call direct.

Such a perfect balance between comfort food and innovative twists on familiar dishes. We loved the hints on summer in the menu - peaches, corn, watermelon. What a treat!

I took my boyfriend here for our weekly Wednesday date and we had the most wonderful experience all around! Our waiter was absolutely phenomenal and easily accommodated my dietary restrictions while still allowing us to order what we really wanted. I am so so appreciative of that. I brought my boyfriend to Sachet previously, also part of the same restaurant group, and he loved it just as much. The staff could not be friendlier at Nonna and the place is very unassuming being in a strip mall. I’ve never had a bad meal here and can’t wait to return again!

The food is Italian but not traditional, and is more Southern Italian style, than Northern, which is my preference. The menu is hard to read, because the lighting is very minimal, and everything on menu is in fine print. The gourmet chef touches may be appealing to some, but not when your looking for good tasting quality Italian food, a little more traditional dishes!

Among the best Italian in Texas. We had great, friendly, and attentive service. The food was amazing as usual. Summer flavors really stood out, led by squash, but all around were well balanced. They make great thin crust pizzas which we always use as appetizers. Chicken Saltimboco was solid. Never been disappointed in one of their salads — they’re small but pack flavor with combinations of authentic Italian and Texan flare in the components.

We typically try a new restaurant for date night. This was our first visit to Nonna, but we will definitely break tradition and return to Nonna. Atmosphere was cozy and relaxed (although a bit dark causing mild difficulty reading menu). We had the sausage and peppers pizza, lobster ravioli and the molten chocolate cake with coffee gelato. ALL VERY GOOD but the coffee gelato I will be dreaming about until our next visit.

My husband’s birthday.
His ravioli was great
My ragu was awful
Waiter was more interested in the obvious repeat patrons than us first timers.

Great beginning but then things fell apart. We were quickly served a pre-dinner cocktail and wine but after ordering our meals, the waiter did not return for over 30 minutes. We did however receive at least 3 servings of bread while waiting. My meal was very disappointing. Shrimp pieces (not whole shrimp) in pasta and absolutely no taste. On top of the long wait, I was ready to leave without eating. I was offered another choice and took it. Much better but the overall experience at that point was ruined.

Wanted a nice atmosphere, great food, and a good date night dinner. Nonna’s hit it right on the head! We really enjoyed the evening. The wine was great as were the food and the service. Top notch in my opinion.

My first time I visited was a much better experience than the second time around. Our waiter didn't seem very interested in attending to my sister and I. We might not have had a big enough table, or appeared to be good tippers. Whatever the case, I would say the service we received impacted the entire experience. If you are going to eat at Nonna, sit at the counter, the service is excellent at the counter! The food was just "okay" this visit. I'd go back to The Charles any day before coming back to Nonna for a third try! It hit the spot for our birthday dinner, but Nonna won't come top of mind for recommendations when I am asked.

Nonna has amazing food (smaller portions so you don’t feel like a pig...plus save room for dessert)! Small, cozy restaurant with excellent service. The brioche crostini was amazing, lobster ravioli was very good (broth based so almost like dumplings in soup). I understand now why reservations are tough to get. Great place!

Great service and food in the dining room and bar! Only downside was the hostess when we arrived. We made a reservation for the dining room, and she said that we hadn’t, and that next time we can sit in dining- she would make a note in our account. I then told her we did make a reservation this time in dining, and wanted to sit there if possible. She said there was no availability. Then I stated we would wait for a table in the dining room. About 20-30 minutes after our original reservation time, we were able to get a table. Just felt that the first impression walking into the restaurant wasn’t welcoming or accommodating. We only stayed because we have dined at Nonna before and loved the food.
