“NOT RECOMMENDED!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

We had great expectations of this restaurant based on the excellent online reviews and were anticipating delicious Italian food. Instead we were served tired dry salad and tasteless watery pasta. I'm sorry we didn't eat across the street at BOA!

“Atmosphere galore in affordable Italian Bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

The atmosphere is pure Italy, red leather sofas and soft lighting. The food is fantastic and the prices are lower than what you would expect of this caliber of establishment. Very romantic, and family oriented at the same time. The restaurant is large enough to have a quiet corner if you want one. Also has outdoor seating and in a quiet part of West Hollywood so street parking is not an issue. Nice wines by the glass as well.

“Nonna of Italy is a GEM!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We celebrated our son's 18th birthday at Nonna's last night. Needless to say it was an important dinner celebration for us! And we COULD NOT have picked a better place! Service was great (they even handled arranging valet parking for us after we accidently parked in the over-priced parking structure next door).....USE THE VALET.

The calamari appetizer was crunchy and light, my goat cheese and grapefrut salad was amazing and theier homemade garlic knott rolls and warm garlic olive oil kept coming...hot from the pizza oven.

We all had a different entree: Sirloin steak (my son said it was the best he ever had...and that kid easts STEAK!). I had a sea bass, boned at the table, and added their lime sauce....I could eat that every day...light and perfectly seasoned. Chicken parma. was like a schnitzel (light and crunchy) wit the best sause and cheese...bubbly and great. My husband had the beef medallions - super tender.

OK - GO to this super restaurant! The ambience was nice (you could actually talk AND enjoy the music!), the wines were great, desserts were awesome - the sour cherry sorbet rocked and so did the cheeses tart.

A wonderful celebration - thank you Nonna's....we'll be going back again soon!

“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

The decor was so comfortable yet upscale and classy. We were greeted, seated and served timely.
Our food was cooked to perfection. The appetizer we got was a salmon pizza that was very tasty and HUGE!
Our server and other staff were very attentive without hovering. Metered parking out front or $7 valet parking. Highly recommend.

“Superior meals for all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

We loved the appetizers, one a cheese plate, and one the antipasto. Plenty for 4 to share and even take some home. My husband and friend thought their veal chops were excellent. My chicken Marsala was super. Our other friend got the pasta with sauce and thought it was delicious. The waitstaff was very attentive and good natured.
