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.

We had a great meal during restaurant week!! Krysta is a very attentive and professional server. The soup, salad, and pasta dishes were terrific, as was the Tiramisu to finish.

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.

My boyfriend and I have been here twice and both times have been absolutely phenomenal service and food. We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, 2 desserts and drinks all for under $100. Our waiter Jose was extremely kind and attentive, even when the restaurant was busy. We brag about the food to all of our family and friends constantly. I can confidently say this is our favorite restaurant in town. Thank you for everything !!!!!!!! We are already planning our next date night here

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.

Before our arrival to our reservation, I called the manager to inform them that our reservation was a business meeting that was planned since our colleague was initially traveling on a business trip to Itay but due to circumstances, her trip to Itay was canceled and instead she was requested to travel to San Antonio for a conference. She was disappointed, to say the least, but to lift her spirits we schedule a business meal at Nonna Osteria for an 'Almost Italy' dinner. The wonderful manager recommended dishes and a dessert sampler with 'Almost Italy' written on the plate.

Nonna Osteria did not disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed each dish presented. Our entire group was in awe with each selection we made. The shaved truffles in the tartfo were AMAZING! Our group confirmed that this was the best Italian food we have ever eaten. Who would have thought San Antonio would be home to this Italian gem? I have done nothing but recommend Nonna Osteria to our colleagues for upcoming trips. Nonna Osteria has turned into a 'MUST' on our restaurant list for San Antonio.

The staff was nothing less of excellent. They were informed of our guest of honor and made her feel so special, even to the detail of where she should sit to see the kitchen prepare the food. The chief came out to greet our group and tell us about his home town in Italy. Nonna Osteria you definitely went over and above our expectations and now you will forever have life long groupies when we're in San Antonio.

BRAVO to the entire team!!

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.
