Ordered 2 pizzas, a Sicilian and a Vegetarian. When ordering pizza from a restaurant with Italiano in the name, you would expect the freshest quality ingredients including the crust. Absolutely not the case with this place, crust is premade frozen bulk that would be expected...from a chain restaurant. I'm certainly not going to expect much from any type of pasta entrees.More

The veal shank with the saffron risotto was fantastic! Highly recommended. The spaghetti bologenese was meaty and delicious. Lemon drop martini is exceptionally fresh and refreshing. Service is exceptional! Highly recommend visiting!

Two weeks ago, I had a horrible bike accident and had to go through serious neck surgery. As a result, for several weeks, I have to eat puréed foods. My daughter came into town and I wanted to get out of the house and take...her, my mom, boyfriend and two very close friends we are staying with as I recover out for a nice meal. The issue for me is that I couldn’t eat anything but puréed foods. Chef Juan had minestrone on the menu and he agreed to purée it for me. Not only was I able to enjoy my first dinner out with family and friends but it was the best minestrone soup I’ve ever had! Everyone at the table ordered a different pasta and loved their entrees. Our server was very attentive as well. We enjoyed an incredible conversation and amazing food and ambiance for nearly 3 hours.More

We took an elderly friend out to dinner before she moved out of the area. We had never been to Nonno's before but read reviews... We all had excellent meals. The wait staff was pleasant and checked on us as needed but didn't hover over...the table. Meals were reasonably priced. We used to go to Olive Garden a lot and thought the food was good there, but it went down hill after a while. But compared w the food here, it never really was good! Ha! This was REAL Italian food and a lot of choices! The alfredo sauce was light and creamy. Yum!More

I ordered Penne al Salmon take out, but they gave me the meal like chicken Alfredo and insisted they put the right thing. So disappointed!
