    I got to meet my buddy’s friend Luca. It was awesome. The food was insane, and the service was perfect. Our waiter was very attentive, and the food was out of this world.

    I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. I had the bolagnese and it was great!

    The server pleasant but everything was slow. It took 15 mins to get cocktails and the wine arrived after we started eating. The coffee were quality tardy. There seemed to be only two or three wait staff for the whole restaurant.

    Had a delicious solo dinner here while in SA for a conference. The staff was kind, courteous, and didn’t make me feel weird about eating alone! Above all the food (and wine) were delicious. I had the arancini and ravioli zucca. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Waitresses with no experience at all ( no know how to open a bottle of wine, no ready to keep serving wine and water, no familiar with the menu and no asking for dessert, just left the check with out saying anything. Bad service!

    Food is fresh. Dishes are somewhat authentic, but with a gimmicky twist. Atmosphere is engaging and promising, but our particular waitress was curt.

    Nonna is above and beyond our favorite place in San Antonio. The food (which is beyond incredible), the service - Mary and Jesse are my favorite humans and they go above and beyond to give the best possible experience, the wine selection - the entire experience is so perfect. You cannot skip the goat cheese and parsley appetizer or the tartufo special. If you’re looking for a phenomenal date night or special occasion please go and request Mary!

    Overalll, we were disappointed in some of the dishes and the service. The latter might be due to the labor force/covid issues but for a restaurant of this caliber we expected more. Take the Caprese salad for instance, the tomatoes were old and then to deep fry the cheese makes no sense and made what should have been a delicious salad mediocre. The main course of ravioli with lobster was average at best.

    Our meal was amazing. We shared the ravioli as an appetizer and our main courses were superb. Being a vegetarian the substituted vegetables for shrimp with my gnocchi. So glad it was recommended to us

    The food was good, however there was a few surprises, the App we got was a fried risotto ball, I don’t normally choose fried foods, the description did not mention it was fried. Also my husband got the tarfuto, it was delicious, however when we got the bill we saw it was $70, for one small plate, now I’m not one that complains about prices I knew it would cost a lot but $70 is outrageous. I could see $40-$50, but for the amount of pasta, tiny bit of crab meat, and tiny shaves of truffle, it was not worth $70, I have had pasta dish’s that I would pay $70 for and this was not one of them.

    Fantastic experience! Great service and high quality food. The bread and tapenade are addictive. I tried the caprese salad - one of the best I've ever had. I also had the bolognese which was quite good. Portions were not too big but enough to make you feel full. Staff was very friendly and knowledgable.

    Three Good Things: 1)Our waiter, John, was excellent. He was knowledgeable about the menu, was engaged, funny, and helpful. We were the last table to leave and he never rushed us. 2)Four of dined: complimentary bread basket with a divine olive-anchovy tapenade, three glasses of wine, a martini, three appetizers, two pasta dishes, the perfectly-executed branzino, a dessert, and a generous tip for about $75 per person!! 3)Complimentary valet parking at the adjacent hotel. Just WOW! Excellent dining experience all around and without the pretense…

    Meeting old friends there for dinner was a great experience. Our server was wonderful and put up well with some sarcastic "wit" and having a meal family style and being able to try everything from the wild boar to branzino was perfect. A great evening was had.

    Had the best meal of my life. So delicious and the service was fantastic! I had the steak with puréed red pepper sauce and it was so delicious. Steak is medium rare and charred tasting AND so delicious. My date had some pasta, very popular dish and I can see why, the best crab meat mixed, buttery deliciousness. Extensive wine listings. Too full for dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant in a beautiful restored space.

    Dinner last night was @nonnaosteria downtown. The outdoor dining here in the courtyard opened up with the cooler weather and it was really nice. I had the Tutto Sbagliato, my husband had the Pomerrigio, and Dad had their fresh Lemonade. The Insalata Verde serving here seemed more generous than the Stone Oak one. We shared the Pizza Margherita and had leftovers to take home. Dad and I shared the Ravioli Zucca with butternut squash. My husband had the Cinghiale with the tender wild boar. Everything was delicious! Kyle was an attentive server. Valet at the Fairmount Hotel was free, which was a bonus! If you're wanting the downtown vibe, come check it out!
