This restaurant was such a welcome find for us when we visited Seaside. It was crowded and had a wait but definitely worth it to have such yummy food. Their pasta was all freshly made and the sauce was delicious. The staff is very friendly...and made us feel welcome despite having many tables to serve. It's far enough away from some of the more kitschy areas to feel authentic and not so touristy. Highly recommend!More

Excellent food. We sat at the bar and started out with the steamer clams which were fantastic. I had the chicken piccata on the recommendation of the bar tender. She didn’t steer me wrong….very tender and perfect lemon caper sauce. My husband had the pancetta...- he loved it. Neither of us finished but brought back leftovers and ate every bite. We will go back for sure next time we are in the area.More

Don't miss this place! Dine-in or Take-out. Whatever works. The Cioppino was to die for and my wife loved the steamed clams.

We have been coming to Seaside every summer since we moved to Oregon about 5 years ago. And, Nonni's is the only place we come to for dinner every time we're in Seaside. It has consistently had great Italian food at every visit. We love...the small bistro and the service is wonderful. The menu is not large, but the portions are. They also have a nice wine list. To avoid long wait times, we suggest you go within the first hour when they open for an early dinner.More

Our first visit to Seaside with some out of town family. We saw Nonni’s is the #1 rated restaurant in Seaside so thought we would give it a try. We thought the food was mediocre at best. Very bland for being Italian so not sure...why others are giving it 5 stars. It was surprisingly busy for late afternoonMore

Old time place serving fine meals. Our pasta dishes were large and flavorful. Add some sourdough bread and olive oil for a complete meal. Nice touch is complementary almond liquor with your check. Good value.

I was a bit surprised by the wait for a table, however, everyone leaving looked com-pletely happy and I heard a man raving about the tiramisu, which I love to death, so I kept waiting. One thing I wasn't crazy about was the fact that...I watched people who came long after I did getting seated. That bugged me, but not enough to give up, so I came inside and was seated fairly quickly. Honestly feared I would be turned away, and I watched some seriously delicious-looking food being brought to guests, so I was all-in by this point-plus, it was after 7PM. Once I was seated, service was prompt and excellent. I really wanted an appetizer, but everything looked way too large for me and I didn't want to spoil my dinner. And oh, what a dinner! I received the loveliest plate of Chicken Piccata, which I make at home-normally I won't order food in restaurants I cook myself, however, I just wanted the taste of lemon and capers. They could write sonnets about the deliciousness of this dish. So exceeded any expectation I had of good food, my meal was beyond greatness! There was a medley of vegetables that was so artfully assembled, I almost hated to eat it-but after the first taste, resistance was futile! How many times in life does one go for the veggies first? Not very often, I assure you, but I could have eaten another two or three servings. The dish was served with a side of spaghetti Alfredo and the creamy richness just steamrolled over my palate, again, I make Alfredo from a recipe handed down from two Italian friends-mine doesn't come close! And I spring for the good cheese and best ingredients, which Alfredo sauce demands. I would have licked my plate clean had I not been in public. The delicious bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar was perfect for sopping up sauce, and I was well stuffed after getting through half my meal, so I ordered some to take home, as well as a tiramisu, which I had planned on saving. But the treat was calling to me from the mini-fridge, and I was completely hooked after two tastes-so much for waiting! Absolute perfection. This is a hit-it-out-of-the-ballpark experience for fans of real Italian food. Well done, Nonni's! I will certainly be back!More

Awesome food and service. Meatball sandwich was the best I’ve had. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs and liked it as well. Highly recommend.

Hello KIrsten, Although we are very small (13 tables) it is a warm and homey atmosphere and well suited for kids. We have a small kids menu and can find a few tables to put together for 7 people. We don't take reservations... More
