Nonna Francesca’s is built on the expectation and anticipation of a shared meal. Our menu mirrors that intention with dishes that are easily shared, delivered in a sequence that speaks to the italian art and production of eating. We hope that our guests have an opportunity to experience our style of service, beautiful Sicilian food, delivered by our own in-house family.

Join us for lunch and dinner in the heart of downtown, on the second floor at 1 York Street. Accessible through the PATH.

I booked this reservation to celebrate my friend’s birthday (just the 2 of us so not a big party). Unfortunately for us the waiter we got said it was just his second day and the bad experience spoke to that fact.

I booked a 12:15pm reservation and we ended up only ordering $35-40 mins later....not because we weren’t ready but because he never came by. I finally had to get up and go find him near the kitchen and ask if he was going to come take our order. He seemed to be very overwhelmed and our experience suffered because of it.

After waiting another 20 mins...my food came without the toppings on the burger that were on the menu which then meant I had to wait for another 5-10 mins for the toppings to be made. My friend’s pasta was incredibly bland.

Food quality was poor.
Service was even worse.

To note, another table beside ours said they would never come back.

Disappointed in this establishment.

This is a beautiful, clean little restaurant that serves delicious, authentic Italian dishes. The service was attentive and informative. It was so yummy that we went back the next night!

Enjoyed the food (was with a friend and we split the kale salad and the spaghetti with eggplant meatballs -- this was just enough for me to fell satiated but not stuffed). The service was helpful but not cloying. I would certainly go back.

Good food, nice environment, a little loud, and hard to find, but worth the effort. Nice, romantic atmosphere.

Overall experience was good until the manager started hitting on these two girls, told them they didn’t have to pay, kept giving them free drinks & then took them to a private area. Really weird vibe. Made my colleague and I uncomfortable.

Food was good and tasty. Service was patchy, even although it was quiet. Prices were higher end than expected, but ok.

The food was excellent. Fresh and very well prepared. the problem is the noise level and the ambiance. Those are both somewhat problematic. But in their defence, I can say that they haven't been open for long. So maybe they will work on the decor .....

Great location and good service however they have NO signage on the location. Located on the second floor of an office building No signage on STREET where all business are located. No signage in directory of building.

Very good quality of food and service. Our waitress was amazing! I really enjoyed the food, my only thing is that I expected to have a better Starter - my Burrata was good, but I have had better. Being that this restaurant is located within an Italian grocery, I would have expected a fresh, very milky burrata. It was clearly kept in refrigeration too long and therefore, the taste was not as good. I was very happy with the available gluten free option and that the quality of that pasta was excellent. Great place for a nice meal where you can have a conversation and enjoy good food. Thank you!
