Food was as usual pretty delicious. Service was slow. It was so noisy that conversation was really difficult, even for two people with normal hearing!

We had a friend visiting from California and took her there for dinner- as always, it was wonderful. David took good care of us and the rest of the staff were attentive and welcoming as always.

Service was fantastic. Food was good, but not stellar. The crostini app and penne bolognese were excellent and hearty, but the spelt spaghetti with brussel sprouts and speck ham was dull and tasteless.

I loved the cozy atmosphere of Nonna. The Crispy Chicken & Pancetta Meatballs were amazing, the Sweet Potato Gnocchi was rich and delicious, and the Olive Oil Cake with Lemon Curd was the perfect way to finish out the evening. Overall, a great place! We will definitely be back.

This was our first time. My daughter and I went on a Tuesday night at 7:30p. The place is small and was full except for our table, another 2 top and a 4 top. Shortly after we arrived all the tables were full. George was a waiter and was knowledgeable, attentive and very sweet. He recommended an excellent wine from my description and the rest of the meal as well. We started out with their crostini which is a slice of sourdough bread with marinated tomatoes, prosciutto, and fresh finely grated cheese on top. It was like a wonderful cloud on top of the bread. We then each had a salad, the beet salad which was to die for and another citrus salad which we thought was a wee bit strange. It had blood oranges, avocado, butter lettuce and feta cheese. The house speciality, lobster ravioli was to die for. We also got the shrimp in a wine sauce w/linguini. All the pasta is homemade and you can tell. We shared all our dishes. Then for dessert we couldn't resist the donut holes with vanilla gelato. We had our usual 2 hour dinner and were the last ones to leave the dining room area. George never made us feel rushed or we had to leave. There were still 10+ people in the bar area. The next time I go, which I definitely will, I will request to sit in the bar area. It seemed to be a bit more lively for a casual dinner out. I thought the pricing was appropriate. Thank you George!

Exceptionally chic, refined, hip yet luxurious, it has been years and it literally looks brand new. Service is exquisite, price point is remarkable and good concept is great just could use a bit of seasoning on some dishes, dessert was remarkable!!!

Anniversary dinner table for two we have eaten here several times and have enjoyed the experience the menu changes daily but there are some items that they repeat from time to time
They have interesting wine list. We usually enjoy various fish dishes they have on menu and this visit was outstanding had a gulf snapper prepared in a interesting way very tasty.

We all enjoyed our food at Nonna. One had lobster ravioli, another a saffron pasta with shrimp, another a dish to accommodate gluten free issues,
The chopped salad was an excellent first course as well as the burrata. We did think that the service was not up to par for this restaurant this visit, , as we seemed to be waiting to give our orders and also had to ask for bread . The service was much better on previous visits.

Nonna is one of the best neighborhood restaurants in Dallas, bar none. More protein options would be welcome but everything we ate was absolutely superb. Our waiter was really fantastic and the service was perfect — not intrusive while still being attentive.

Wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Would not recommend. Portion sizes were very small- I mean tiny! Prices do not reflect tiny portions. Service was SLOW like whoa! Three hours to dine on a weekday night? Crazy! The pasta was ok, meat was ok, apps just ok.... everything was just ok. Nothing special. I would say go to Lucia (if you can get in) its way better, or taverna. Much better food and service. From a revive perspective- our waitress was very slow and not friendly... towards the end this got more noticeable. And then she brought us checks with 20% gratuity added. This was not mentioned on the menu. So it was disappointing to see she just didn’t care and knew she would add her tip. By the way, I was a server and bartender and always leave more- so her loss.

We are long term fans of Nonna. Yesterday we introduced another couple to the joys and delights of dining there for lunch. They are connoisseurs of good food and they were very impressed. They are looking forward to visiting again soon for dinner so they can sample some of the great wines on the amazing wine list. The food was outstanding, as always, and the service was exceptional. We want to especially commend our waitress, Linda, and Francisco who remembered that my husband always has to have his water without ice. Since we had only met Francisco once before - on New Year's Eve - we were doubly impressed. Service is a hallmark of the Nonna experience.

Loved our dinner here! We have been to Fachini but this was our first visit to Nonna. The hostess greeted us with a big smile and let us pick our table. The somm, Sergio, was spot on with our profile of wine. Our pasta and pork chop couldn't have been better! We will return.
