Natalia was amazing, food was great. Would go back in a second.
An early day valentines dinner- the overall setting was nice. Although the overall experience felt like it was lacking in quality for the price.
We enjoyed the corner booth for privacy, great service, wonderful food and great timing with the restaurant week special.
We arrived early and were seated right away. The service was some of the best I have experienced. Waiter suggested a bottle of wine that was perfect to what I asked for. Water glasses never went empty. The food came out quickly. Portions and flavor exceeded the price for the entrees. Overall a wonderful experience. The venue was loud making it difficult to have a conversation, but this was most likely due to the volume of people surrounding us.
Great place to celebrate Valentine’s Day. 👩❤️👨
Amazing from the moment we walked through the doors, until the last step out the door! Cannot wait to go back!
Out of the seven venues we tried during restaurant week, this was our favorite! The food was delicious!!
The service was prompt, friendly, and accurate. It was restaurant week, which may affect the way i rated "value," as I didn't read the complete menu. The pasta Bolognese was the best I've had. The panna cotta was light but very satisfying. The salad I chose (cinnamon pears, pecans, etc.) was a slight departure for an Italian menu and a little ho hum. All portions were generous. I will go back.
Food & Service were fantastic, especially Roberto.
Nice new Italian option for us
I love the food there and service is always great. One thing, I've been there a least 3 times in the past 3 months and I always order the same thing and I've noticed that it's not consistent. Food tasted the same but the it's always not exactly same as on the menu. I still love and enjoy but it's just not consistent.
Everything about this meal was fantastic. A group of us went for Restaurant week, but once we got there - none of us ended up ordering off of the special Restaurant week menu. Everything was delicious. I even ended up ordering a second pasta dish for myself. So good.
Visited during Downtown Dining week, and the options from that menu were superb. We can't wait to go back and try other options. We travel to Chicago every year during this week to experience different restaurants, and being Italian ourselves, we hold Italian restaurants to a higher standard, comparing to our own family recipes. Nonnina was amazing, food was hot, delicious, flavorful and Excellent. The Spaghetti Carbonara was better than the ones we tried in Italy. The Bragiole was fork tender and so good. And the desserts were out of this world. The panna cotta with raspberries = scrumptious. Also the Blueberry Tart was exceptional. The staff is very attentive and helpful. All around a very wonderful restaurant. Looking forward to our next trip to Chicago to experience Nonnina again.
Great atmosphere and presentation. True Italian experience. The food was delicious. I recommend the pulpo appetizer.
Food is always outstanding, service is impeccable and prices are appropriate!
Food: excellent; lobster pasta was terrific as was branzino.
Drink: solid wine list; as expected heavy on Italian wines; could use a few additional burgundy / Pinot noir bottles
Service: attentive and friendly
Ambience: warm and lively; friendly atmosphere
Value: fine; nothing unreasonable including wine list
The food was lovely. I especially liked the fish offerings. We brought friends this time. They all loved it and will certainly come back.
Went there for a birthday celebration. Server was very unhappy that he was working and he was like ready to fight with anyone. Food arrived late, was not delicious at all.
Also I mentioned it was a birthday, birthday girls food arrived the latest and they didn’t acknowledge the birthday. Usually restaurants acknowledge and bring a small desert for the birthday person.
Great spot for business lunch in the heart of river north
Great food and service.
The staff was very friendly and super accommodating. They made the occasion THAT much more special!
We were able to get a reservation the morning of our dinner. Had never been to Nonninas before but made our decision to go based on the reviews we read. Awesome pick!! Great food and staff. Will go again!
Food was delicious and very authentic, staff were friendly, knowledgeable and extremely attentive. We went as a group of 8 and didn’t feel like we had been squashed in anywhere, restaurant has a great spacious layout which made for a comfortable dining experience
What a great restaurant! We had a business lunch here and we were delighted by everything. Our waiter (don't know his name) was great... food was amazing. The noise in the room was just enough to be pleasant and the dining room was nice. We will definitely come back here- there are a lot of choices for lunch in River North, and this place definitely deserves their spot. Would highly recommend.
Best experience ever
Absolutely wonderful! I absolutely loved it! Will be back soon
New Year’s Eve dinner
The food was excellent and the service was great
Came here on New Years Eve - they were incredibly understaffed (one bartender, very few waitstaff) and the whole experience was pretty bad. Took almost 45 minutes to get drinks, our food took forever, and we ended up there for almost 2.5 hours... it was a really disappointing experience.
Great staff, excellent food, great environment.
Amazing food, great vibes
We had New Year’s Eve dinner at Nonnina’s for the second time. It was a little disappointing this time. My husband had the lasagna, which he said was nothing special. I had the chicken parmigiana, which was very good. We shared the Pera salad, which had the potential to be very good but was very heavily soaked in salad dressing, particularly the spinach. We shared a tiramisu for desert & that was excellent! Service was ok, but there were so many servers to assist the wait staff it was constant coming & going of different ones. I had a glass of wine but my husband was drinking sparkling water from a wine glass next to its large bottle on our table. Yet, when one server saw his glass was empty, he asked if my husband was having another wine, to which my husband said no, so the server whipped the glass away giving us no chance to intercept him. It took us complaining to another random server for us to get a replacement wine glass.
Had our New Year’s Eve dinner here and it was fantastic. Great service, yummy cocktails, large portion pasta. Just great.
You will not be disappointed!!! The food was awesome and authentic. I had the braciole and it was the most tender meat I have had in a long time. The pasta dishes were also tasty and flavorful. I highly recommend this place!!!
Amazing food and ambiance
service was excellent. Ambience was good. But Food was very expensive given the quality and quantity. They charged $10 for virgin mojito considering it is just soda water and mint. Also, we got the worst table which was at the entrance door.
The food was outstanding and the service was extremely speedy. The meatballs as appetizers were a home run; same with the fried rice balls filled with mozzarella. Today’s special was great as well!
Nonnina is an Italian restaurant that tries hard to prepare their dishes in the traditional Italian way, in other words "not americanized". In terms of portions, they are still very big, not like in Italy but one can order the pasta in the appetizer size which is the portion sized normally served around the world. I am from Italy and we like our pasta "al dente" , resistant to the bite, and this was not, but overall it was good, the sauce delicious. My husband ordered meat, which was not an enormous steak but a lovely, tender, juicy piece of meat seasoned and cooked to perfection. Unfortunately the baked clams I ordered were rubbery but the rest of the food was good and presented very nicely, plated to satisfy the eye, as well as the stomach.
Me and my roommate from college had dinner here to celebrate the holidays. Great meal. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Would definitely go again.
