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.

Superb food, as always. Service a little uneven this time; e.g., had to wait a long time just to get some coffee (because they order it from the bar). And we should have asked the price of their specialty pasta dish with truffles -- wonderful, but a shock when we got the bill. Still the best fine dining in town!

What a great dining experience! The food and service were amazing. Best Italian food in town. We also enjoyed a really good bottle of wine and had drinks before dinner at the rooftop bar.

I had the Wild Boar pasta and it was exquisite. The service was wonderful and while it did take a little more time than expected to order we saw many attend to our table that were not our "server". I really appreciate the way they worked together. The double boned pork chop was cooked to perfection and the caprese appetizer was phenomenal. I had tiramisu and I haven't had one that well done since I lived in Seattle over 20 years ago.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. Starting with the valet parking that was free( we tipped the valet), we felt very special. We walked into the beautiful Fairmont Boutique Hotel and loved the decor. Every employee was welcoming and friendly. We checked into our reservation a little early. We took the elevator to the roof top bar and had a lovely look around. They have nice heaters up there. We made our way to our table and hear a few people say they would be back because they did not have a reservation...highly recommend a reservation. Other guests were celebrating special events as well. Nice to see there are still places to go where people know how to dress and act nice. We had complimentary champaign sent to our table🍾 and the bread and olive dip was super good. Could not stop eating it. The cocktails where spot on a tasty! My husband ordered the pork chop and I had the gnocchi and salmon. Everything was super fresh and amazing. I think we have found our new favorite restaurant for special life events!

I am afraid I have been more impressed with the food in previous visits...but the service was superb and I will return again....Some of the spice levels of the food and presentation were not as excellent as my previous visits.....

The only criticism is there aren’t any prices on the menus. We ordered two pasta dishes that were $70 each!

My husband and I tried out another local high end Italian restaurant so it made it want to try out Nonna. The ambiance was nice and the roof top was a must see but the rest was a bit disappointing. We tried the parmagiana, which was cold by the time it got to our table, a roasted vegetable plate which was actually quite good, carbonara was fine, and the pizza did not have much flavor at all. But the cocktail I had was unique and hit the spot. For the price of the restaurant we expected a lot more. I would not return to this restaurant due to there being better options near by.

It was a very good meal. I had the caprese salad, Margherita pizza, and hazelnut dessert. I loved the caprese salad. I almost ordered another. The pizza was good as well. The dessert was decent but I would have like it better without hazelnut. My friend ordered the squash soup, which was delicious. I would say this is a good place for a nice dinner or just a vacation meal. You’ll see people dressed for both

Nonna Osteria is consistently great since it opened, but the Valentine’s Day Day Prix Fixe was hands down one of the best meals my wife and I have had at any restaurant, regardless of cuisine or city. Service and a management were fantastic and accommodating as always. Can not recommend Nonna enough.

We went on Valentine’s Day so it was very busy and slightly rushed, but the food is so amazing. I would go back for the food and to enjoy a more relaxed dinner.

Hubby and I went out for a lovely dinner yesterday at Nonna. It was everything I had imagined. The dishes were beautiful and scrumptious. Service was wonderful. She went over the menu with us and helped us decide on dessert which was phenomenal. We had the burrata. For entrees we got the eggplant parmigiana, octopus, and carbonara. SO AMAZING. For dessert the redeye espress and polenta olive oil cake.

First and foremost, I completely recommend this restaurant. Excellent affordable (!!!) wine list, unique and delicious appetizers, paired with a wide variety of entrees. Although we tried multiple antipasti, I would recommend the Tomini Al Verde (Baked goat cheese with a parsley garlic sauce). Inexpensive and very good for a group. We had multiple entrees from Lobster Ravioli to roasted Seabass. All excellent. One person had a pork chop (dont remember the name) that was overcooked. But it was quickly replaced. The restaurant ambiance is beautiful. In any case, this restaurant is good for both groups or individuals.

Great place but too busy to enjoy the ambience and table side pasta preparation. Jammed a table of 6 or 7 next to us at a table designed for 4 so very crowed WITHOUT consideration for my party of 4. Disappointed...………………….
