    Food was amazing! Had the mushroom fettuccini and beef cheeks for main. Caprese and polenta chips for entree. All so tasty! Service was good too. Highly recommend

    Slow cook beef cheek was cooked perfectly. Best dish of the night. Pasta dishes were well cooked. Gnocchi dish portion was rather small. Red wine Shiraz was to our liking. Waitress service was good.

    Food was tasty but portions were small so even with the 50% off, it wasn't value for money. Service was spotty, the waitress was quite forgetful and slow, despite the fact that tonight didn't seem too busy.

    Was not disappointed with our dinner, service prompt and the food delicious, hot and well sized portions. Calamari tender with crispy coating, lamb ragu pasta al dente with lots of meat sauce and butter tender full flavoured beef cheek. Just turn music volume down next time as we’ll be back to try other dishes. Thanks Nonna.

    Great find! Look forward to eating at Nonna’s again. Went to the restaurant after reading the reviews. Had the best truffle gnocchi ever. The Cianti red wine recommended by the staff was also fantastic. Great service, fantastic food.

    Lovely neighbourhood gem. Authentic tasting dishes especially the beef cheeks with genuine customer service. Dishes came with generous servings and beautifully presented. Would love to come back again.

    Service and atmosphere were great but the food was shocking, bread was over cooked and the garlic bread was stale, the pasta was expensive and tasted like it was frozen, it was also cold and undercooked. And don't even get me started on the water, it tasted old and bad, as well as constant top ups that were unwanted as they filled my sprite glass with dirty tasting water. Wouldn't recommend until they rotate thier chef and clean thier water taps. Waitress was all lovely and king though!

    Fantastic food.The beef cheek was amassing. The five cheese risotto is the best we have ever had. Italian cooking at its best.

    We had a few appetisers which were quite average BUT the pastas are extremely good. I would miss starters and just go straight to pasta mains next time. Good service too.

    The food didn't taste very authentic compared to other Italian restaurants I've tried. Although the waiters were attentive the food took a long time to be served.

    The ambience was very nice and it situated at the corner, with the light shining through the glass making it warm. The food and service was great. We all had a wonderful time.

    Amazing food and atmosphere, the portions were a little small but perfectly authentic. Gnocchi was delightful, little pillows of heaven. Will definitely be returning!
