“Good traditional Tuscan Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

We stopped at Nonnanna for dinner last week while driving around the countryside and had an enjoyable dinner. Prices are very affordable and the food is simple and good. I wouldn't recommend driving to the area just for the restaurant, but if you're nearby, then you should give it a go. Green and white checkered plastic coated table cloths are covered with white linen. The menu is simple, she lists around 7 pastas available, including gnocchi, tagilatelle, pici, spaghetti, and you select the sauce you'd like to go with the pasta. There are around 7-10 sauces you can pick from. We ordered the spicy tagliatelle pasta with the spicy pesto and the cinghiale (etruscan wild boar) ragu with the pappardelle. We also ordered the potatoes as an antipasti, but it came after we'd eaten most of our pasta and we were stuffed! There were 2 tables of english speaking tourists and the rest of the restaurant was locals, so it's a nice mix. Be warned that they speak little to no English here, but we managed, so you will be able to, too.

“Loved everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

While driving around searching for a place to eat we stumbled upon Nonnanna...a lucky find!
We found the interior warm and inviting.
We were greeted by a lovely woman who we mistook for the Nonna of the place name. We were seated at a linen covered table with fresh flowers upon it. The space was well lit....thank goodness! Spare us those dimly lit places where we struggle to read the menu and see the food! We were offered bruschetta ...one with liver pâté and one with mushroom/marscapone.
My husband had obviously hand cut tagliatelle ( or pappardelle??) with cingale sauce. He claimed it by far the best he's ever had...and he's had some!
I had the home-made "chubby pasta"... Which turned out to be the regional pasta...pici. It was served in I think a squash,sausage,marscapone and curry sauce which was heaven itself. Probably the best pasta dish I have ever had...and I eat a lot of pasta.
We had mousse and strawberries and cream respectively for dessert. With wine and fizzy water the cost was 31 euros!
We spoke to Christina...the charming young chef.
Our only disappointment was that when we returned for dinner the next night the restaurant was closed!
