Our overall experience was tailored to our requirements and well exceeded our expectations. We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and Faith, our waitress, was absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant and have Faith as your waitress.

This place is a for sure keeper. Some of the best Italian dishes I've ever had. Our server recommended that we talk with the wine steward to make our selection for a wine to pare with our meals. It turned out perfect. Started with the Tomini (Baked Goat cheese), shared a Mixed Greens salad, my wife ordered the Papardelle al Cinghiale with the Wild Boar and I had the Maltagliati with Ndujia Spicy Sausage. All the dishes were very well prepared and specialty pastas were perfect. We selected out side seating which was perfect, a little background music and were able to hold a conversation with out having to shalt. Service was very good and timing of servings was right on. Will definitely return soon...

I’ve been coming to this restaurant for years. I’ve moved away and when I come back in town I have to go here. Nonna Osteria is probably the best Italian restaurant in San Antonio! Everything is fresh and the flavors are incredible. This is a must try if you’re ever in town or live here and want great food. The staff is also amazing.

Every part of Nonna was fantastic! The service was nothing short of excellent. Every dish we ordered was delicious and I’d order them all again. I wish I lived in San Antonio to eat there more often bull I’ll just make a special trip from Austin anytime I’m in the mood for Italian.

We are San Antonio residents, have been to Nonna Osteria several times and always enjoy ourselves. The food is exceptional, service perfect and free valet parking is greatly appreciated. We find the small, interesting and well thought out menu refreshing. Sitting at the window is great fun people watching.

I’m a native Italian so I’m very critical when I eat Italian food in the US. I must say that this restaurant is by far the most authentic thing you can find in San Antonio. It’s a must try!

Service was great, large wine selection which was appreciated but the food was a bit underwhelming for the price. Not saying it was bad but Italian places are a dime a dozen so they should do something to set themselves apart. Nonna doesn’t do that - just a very average restaurant with typical but overpriced Italian fare.

Make sure you read the menu before you go! I was in the mood for classic Italian food, there were no marinara dishes, no lasagna, no spaghetti with meat sauce. There is rabbit and wild boar, they said the food was from Piedmont area of Italy, far NW area of Italy. I’ve been to Florence, Rome, Assisi, and Tuscany and while I didn’t sample all the cuisine, I could always find spaghetti! The dish I settled for had sheets of house made pasta, which was ok, the sauce was a watery tomato based sauce with small bits of Italian sausage and spinach. I had a hard time getting the pasta wet. I left with the pasta expanding my stomach but very little protein. It was our anniversary meal and it was disappointing!

We have eaten here a number of times over the years but have never tried the pizza. While I’m sure they know how to make pizza ours probably should have stayed in the pizza oven an additional 30-45 seconds. It was simply undercooked. Good flavor and interesting sausage. Yes, Neapolitan pizzas are typically more moist than typical American pizza but this was not typical.

Mary was a great sever. Very helpful w explaining wine options and entree choices. And the good was delicious. Especially loved the wild boar pasta dish and the burrata appetizer

Loved the view of the kitchen

I only wish it had been a little cooler in the restaurant. The lobby was especially cool and refreshing. Guess because of all of the cooking going on

Can’t wait to return here and to see Jackie and Alexis - who need misters, at the Roosevelt roof top bar

Kasey was an amazing server. Very cheerful and smiling any time she stopped by our table. The Arancini ai Gamberi was absolutely delicious. Our main entrees of the Ravioli and gnocchi were very filling. Ending with tiramisu and coffee capped off a wonderful evening.

The meal was exceptional, shared the Burrata with grilled vegetables as an appetizer, octopus and lobster ravioli entrees and chocolate "thing" for dessert. The only disappointment were the expresso, cold due to the glass coffee cups used. Really should invest in appropriate cups if offer expresso.
