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.

Never disappoints. The new summer menu is fantastic. Gnocchi was absolutely superb. Matt, the resident sommelier, delivered with unfindable gems from niche Italian winemakers. Best dining experience in San Antonio.

Our service is always wonderful. The food and wine are good also. The new additions tp the menu are a plus and we tried some last night. You cannot have a restaurant without a good fish option or two.

We are also waiting for the oyster bar upstairs to open.

We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary.
Immediately the hostess recognized our name and congratulated us. Our server did as well. After a wonderful meal we were treated to s glass of Prosecco and the chef made us a special dessert. The chef then came to our table to give us his best wishes.
For us this was a throw back to the way things should be done.
From the minute we arrived until the moment we left we felt special.

The noise level dampens conversation at your table, especially when there are large groups nearby.
I had the shrimp risotto, which had one cut up shrimp and maybe two asperges spears mixed in the risotto, disappointing.
The highlight was visiting the rooftop bar afterwards, which is spacious and has fabulous views of the city.

One of the absolute best eating experiences in San Antonio. Food is authentic Italian, wine list expansive and fun, staff are pros, and atmosphere is both warm and full of energy.

We had a wonderful meal, guided by our server Haley. She knew how to help with Gluten Free options, helped us select our bottle of wine and described dishes to us to help us with our entree selections.
She was a wonderful server and made our evening out a memorable one. Next time we're in San Antonio we will be sure to visit Nonna Osteria again! Thank you so much Haley!

Family dinner with our teenagers was fun! I’m always happy to get time with them. We all ordered a pasta dish and they were ok, but the pasta and sauces were very American. I was hoping for a more homemade Italian flare. Wine list is amazing and ambiance is stellar. This would be a great place for appetizers and cocktails/wine with girlfriends.

The service was outstanding, the restaurant is beautiful and the food was good, it is a shame that the acoustics of the place are so bad. We could hardly hear our waitress or have a conversation because of how loud the place is, the sommelier said that they are trying to improve their acoustics but waiting on city officials to approve. Really enjoyed the rooftop for drinks after dinner!

If you are looking for spaghettis, this is not the place for you. The food is true northern Italian and excellent. If you are into wine, and who isn’t, they have a great wine selection.

Loved this restaurant! The food was really good and the service was impeccable!!!! Faith was our waitress and she was amazing! Only downside is that it is incredibly noisy in the restaurant. Like to the point where I basically had to yell at my husband who was across the booth from me, in order to talk to him. It’s only really loud in there because there is nothing but hard surfaces in the restaurant. Other than that is was all very good and we will be back!

Extremely expensive! There were very few people eating lunch at this place, I assume because it is so expensive. They don’t even have a lunch menu and the overly priced dinner menu options were very small.

I had high hopes for Nonna. I love all the Silos. But the food was over priced and under seasoned. The best thing we ate was the bread and tapenade they brought to the table, it was great. The goat cheese app was mouthwatering. But entrees were bland and all 4 in my party left disappointed. I prefer the smaller plate concept. These were larger entree portions, and thus more expensive. We did not take the leftovers home. Too many other great places in SA to go back here,
