Great salad to start the meal. I had papardelle with the salmon cream sauce. Delicious but rich. My wife had the pesto gnocchi and it was fantastic. One thing to note....portions are huge!!! Big enough to share but if you're a big eater, go for it. More

Good food, large portions and great service but bit noisy and bit over priced but that was expected for dining in little Italy. Worst of all was parking. It took me half an hour to find parking few blocks away for $10. I wished there were private parking spaces for Civico. More

We came here to celebrate my girlfriend's bachelor graduation with a party of 9. Easy reservation with OpenTable and requested we be sit outside in the patio I saw in the pictures. We got there right at 6pm (our reservation time) and were seated immediately even though 4 people were still on their way, and in the back as requested. The restaurant is in little Italy so good luck with parking. The outside patio in the back is outstanding. Great ambience, blocks out the noise from the busy street and is set up very "Tuscany". Our server was super friendly. We were checked on constantly. 5 of us loved our food. Two people said their food was good but nothing special, and the other two were left disappointed, both of which ordered the same plate, carbonara. I know for a fact my friend is very picky with food so I take the feedback with a grain of salt but my the other person also said it wasn't that great and it did look a bit bland, so I guess just stay away from the carbonara. I loved my chicken parm, I tried my GF's lasagna and it was amazing, and my other friend raved about their pesto pasta/chicken. The appetizers we ordered everybody loved and the majority of us loved our food so I have to say the quality and taste of food is overall a good bet. It was reasonably priced in my opinion. Please NOTE gratuity is automatically included. We paid $288 for two large appetizers, 9 plates of food, two beers, and one glass of wine including tax and tip. (~$32/person) Overall Nonna's is a great restaurant with quality service and food at a reasonable prices and great atmosphere. I would def go back for everyday dining or a special occasion. More
