We visited here for the first time and were not disappointed! Service was excellent and the food delicious. Their gluten free options were extensive and for the first time in ages my daughter had choice! The Nonnas pasta was fabulous. We will return. Make sure...you book as was very busy.More

I am really disappointed that I am having to write this review after visiting Nonnas this afternoon. Myself and my partner booked a table online in advance knowing how busy the place gets and wanting to ensure we didn’t just turn up as walk ins...and get turned away. We had planned on going for a nice walk in Woburn Woods then heading there afterwards for lunch together, which we did. When we arrived we were waiting to be seated and I explained I had a table booked under my name - the female member of staff took us through to the smaller restaurant out the back (pink room) to a table - I could see that she was looking at my footwear to which I would like to now point out we were both wearing boots mine were wellies and my other half in walking boots - we had no loose mud on them though and they were bone dry having been stood waiting at the reception for a good 10 minutes to be seated anyway. I remarked that we had just been for a walk and smiled about it as I felt a bit awkward having seen her look at the shoes , she said ‘if I’d of seen you were wearing those I’d of sat you in the Deli’. I thought this was very rude and condescending, especially as the tables next to us were now staring. Next thing a man who I’m assuming was the head waiter / manager came to our table and pointed at our shoes saying next time we came to make sure our shoes were clean or we wore different footwear. It was so rude and we both felt like the whole room was staring and I was quite upset about this and felt like they had looked down their noses at us. No body should be made to feel like that especially when you’re a paying customer. We did not book a table to be seated in any particular part of the establishment so it was there choice to sit us there and then tell us our shoes were dirty - which they weren’t as we left not a single mark on the floor. On another note if they are so precious about the cleanliness they should take a look in the ladies toilets which on previous occasions I have found to be not to a clean enough standard. Awful customer service.More

Owner is a beaut of a gent and a star, staff make the place welcoming and perfect. Food to die for that's mouthwatering and worth every penny and a drinks menu that doesn't dissapoint. Fully recommend 👌

I have been here before but it is nice to see they have expanded and with this expansion has been no loss of service, there is always a welcome and friendly smile from all of the staff offering a wide variety of cooked breakfasts and...lunches this bistros delicatessen offers a unique mixture of Italian and English cuisine it is a great place to meet and have a chat and spend time just shooting the breeze with friends and family.More

It was my first time visiting and my friend and I had a lovely time. Staff were very friendly and helpful and our food was very tasty. I think this place is so beautifully decorated and it’s a great little place to eat. It was...a little chilly but I think they may have had a heating issue. Apart from that, it was a very nice couple of hours.More

Had a wonderful evening at Nonna's for my birthday tonight. This restaurant never disappoints but tonight they went the extra mile to make sure we all had a fabulous time. The food was superb as always and Shaquiel looked after us so well, even arranging...a specially decorated dessert and offering expert reccomendations. Best birthday ever, thank you!More

No booths. But tables are well spaced so not on top of anyone, and cannot really hear other’s conversation.
