As San Antonio’s food scene continues to evolve, a new culinary hub is beginning to take shape downtown, where some might argue it all began. With signs of life stirring and anticipation building, the lights are officially back on in the historic Fairmount Hotel’s corner eatery. SILO Restaurants and Food Network Star runner-up and Executive Chef Luca Della Casa announce the opening of NONNA Osteria, offering artisan Northern Italian cuisine, honoring the regional traditions and heritage of Chef Della Casa’s homeland.

I would go to San Antonio just to have another dinner at Nonna Osteria. As close to Italy as you can get. Highly recommend the Carbonara with a glass of Montepulciano. I will be back. Please open a Nonna Osteria in Los Angeles!

Overall great experience! We started with the charcuterie and cheese plate (forgot to take a photo because we were too excited!). One of us has a severe dairy allergy, which they were very nice about accommodating, although there weren’t a lot of menu options that were modifiable. The menu had changed from the online menu (we look ahead to check for allergy issues) so the initial planned “safe” meal wasn’t available anymore, but it ended up working out.

Excellent food! Meal prep was perfect, had boar and the crab with jalapeños. Both were exceptional. Wine pairing was perfect. Waitress, brandy, was truly splendid. Overall a wonderful experience if a bit loud.

We celebrated our anniversary with our new friends at Nonna Osteria. The food was so delicious. Had the boar and the grilled sea bass and we would recommend both. The salad was so fresh and tasty and the table side bread and pesto are sensational. Samantha was our lovely, knowledgeable server. She made excellent suggestions and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Great as always, food, service, and all the staff. The quality of the service and food is reasonable to the cost. It is not all ways about the price.

It was our second time there. Food was absolutely delicious! Somewhat disappointed since we picked this restaurant for my birthday celebration and they didn’t do anything other than acknowledge we were there for a birthday when the server initially approached the table. Expected a complementary glass of bubbly or small dessert.

overall very nice meal -- only issue was the pasta in the main course was just shy of al dente and rather chewy - we will be back as other dishes were outstanding

Food is amazing even though every menu is pricy, obviously a tourist trap. Would have been nice to go up to the roof for a drink, but the owners don't think it's necessary to block the 105-degree heat so, Bye. Impressive wine menu and every dish we had was fantastic. If you're trying to play it smart have like a couple of apps, and no drinks and get out before your bill crushes your mortgage.

Nonna’s a lovely place with delicious food, excellent drinks, and a wonderful ambiance. It’s a favorite place for my partner and I to grab an excellent meal at a beautiful location. Plus, anyone who dines at Nonna gets access to the Fairmont rooftop bar, which is a great place to enjoy a secret cocktail while admiring the downtown views of the Alamo City.

Great Friday night experience at Nonna's. Got us in a few minutes before our reservation time. Had drinks and dinner in less than an hour. Service was great and food was wonderful. Very good wine list - by the glass or bottle. We will be back soon.

Complimentary valet parking awaits your arrival. You’re seated in a smallish dining area that feels much bigger than it is and there is plenty of non harsh natural light and when the sun goes down the lighting is soft and warm. There’s a view of the kitchen From most of the tables. The service was outstanding and so was the food(and desserts). Bradley was our server I believe and he was attentive and informative; great service. The price was absolutely fitting for how delicious and pleasant the experience was.

Service and food was phenomenal. Our only complaint was that we ordered a fettuccine dish that came served in a cheese bowl and it didn’t say the cost on the menu. It ended up costing $70. Now it was extremely good I just do not believe it was worth the money. But overall an incredible place to eat and drink. Will for sure be going back.
