Wonderful ambience enhanced by the superb staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Although busy there was still a nice quiet feel and the staff still managed to make you feel special. Book it, visit it, enjoy and repeat.

Booked online with open table but when we got there our booking couldn’t be found. Very friendly staff member gave us a table anyway. Our friends joined us. Drinks were great, service was really good, food average for the price. Ourfriend ordered a meal that normally has a cream and mushroom sauce on it which was forgotten but staff member brought a jug of it half way through the meal. Portions of vegetables small. But staff were very good

Excellent friendly staff, food was Superb and good amount on the plate. The large G&T’s excellent and well made with great choice of gins and tonics.
Excellent atmosphere and with the lovely sunny weather in the evening felt like we were on holiday at a cosy Italian restaurant somewhere in Italy.
Will certainly visiting again

We booked an early evening meal as we were going along to The Stables theatre later and it worked out really well. I'd asked when booking if we could keep the table for a couple of hours as we had a lot to catch up on with our friends. Everything went very well - staff were lovely things arrived promptly and looked lovely & fresh. We all enjoyed our food and our time there but the two of us that had the crab & prawn pasta were a bit disappointed by the very small amount of crab & just 3 large prawns for £18. I would certainly go again though.

Mmm..we had to wait a very long time for our food and we were seated near the toilets and the back door kept getting left open so it was draughty too. Food was cold when it arrived and the waitress offered my 5 year old some smarties while waiting for his breakfast? Gee thanks a million..just what he needed

Recommend by a colleague Went for Birthday dinner. Restaurant was busy but still room and comfy but we were asked if we wanted to move to the brasserie. Quieter and added tapas menu to choose from. Great initiative as much quieter although had live music but not intrusive. Food and service exemplary from start to finish with real friendly staff. Had tapas menu as neither of us was that hungry. Excellent green risotto (everything was fab to be fair) and possibly best panacotta ever had for desert. Firm bit still creamy and delicate - not some latter-day blancmange like so many can be. Overall best meal out for ages. 10 out of 10 to the team!

I have to say Nonnas is one of the most welcoming and friendly restaurants I have been to for quite some time. The food was so tasty and well presented. The staff very lovely and even when we had a slight issue it was quickly remedied and staff were very quick to offer alternatives etc . I would most definitely recommend Nonnas to anyone looking for a nice place to have a catch up and a meal with good ambience and great food. Prices were reasonable also.

Very friendly and welcoming staff...was a little bit late for my booking but the staff was compassionate and manage to still compensate to cater for us. Lovely atmosphere & great food...Highly reccomend the wild boar ravioli from current menu. Will definitely be returning again in the near future.

Went for breakfast. Have the I Don’t Avacado, what the menu said to what I received was different. Couldn’t really see or taste avacado and the eggs were cold.
Asked for the bill and before we could even put our purses away a reserved sign was slammed on the table with a glare to make sure we left immediately. Will think again about going for breakfast.

Having visited the restaurant for the first time we found the ambience nice and authentic. The service was good, friendly and attentive. The food however was in our opinion average and the portions shockingly small and was far from good value for money. We thought the prices were very high for what we actually received. A shame as we will probably not return.

The lunch time menu has changed and in our opinion is quite limited. We did find some dishes to order but they were very average and both my wife and daughter left some of theirs even though the portions were not large. Service was fine and the staff are all friendly but overall it was expensive and not good value.

We used to like Nonna's at lunch time/evening but based on this last visit we will be booking elsewhere and could not recommend.

We had a lovely evening apart from they had run out off a few things on the menu, and one off our party asked for a folk her food was getting cold , and the waitress was very rude she said (can’t you see I have my arms full!!) , we complained to the restaurant only an apology nothing else was offered, it put a real damper on a lovey evening which was a birthday and we spent money on a taxi to get there and home and spent a lot on drinks ect !!

Excellent as always. I took my parents for breakfast on Saturday and I think it will quickly become one of their firm favourites as well.

This is always a good option if you like good food, good customer service, and a relaxed/comfortable atmosphere.

We just love it!!!!!

A wide variety of slightly different choices. We started with the sharing board which was probably wise to leave room for two more courses. The pizzas were excellent and very tasty. The pasta dishes were filling and flavoursome.

We all managed pudding where some of us again enjoyed the sharing option , the pear and ginger cheesecake was voted the favourite though

I thought the food was nice and the service was very good. The restuarant is local to me (I can walk to it) so it's very convenient. There were 2 children with us and the staff were very good with them. It was also good that there was a children's menu.
My one criticism would be that the music was a bit too loud and the choice of music wasn't very relaxing. The people at the table next to us were loud - I think just because they were trying to speak above the music. I was finding it hard to have a proper conversation with the adults (and the children!).

I have been before with my daughter, liked it very much, I had the Wild Boar Ravioli.
Booked for my wife and I in the restaurant, however we decided to eat in the Bistro, nice atmosphere, we were served by a nice young lady.
Food and wine all very good, will definitely visit again, may try on an evening to see how this compares to the lunch vibe.

We decided to visit Nonna's for my Daughter's birthday (her choice). We were shown to a table near the toilets, despite the main restaurant being mainly empty, but I believe it's because we had a child with us.
My daughter was not provided with a kids menu, we were told kids meals were half the price of the adults, but there wasn't much option for her. However, during dessert we were provided with a kids menu! Which would have been ideal if she had the choice of those meals for her main.
My husband queried a drink and we were told 'I don't know what it is', no offer to go and check.
The service was poor and we were made to feel very unwelcome and as though they were doing us a favour by letting us eat there. Food was not memorable and overpriced. The waitresses stood by us gossiping for the majority of our meal, which added to the uncomfortable, unpleasantness of our evening.
I had high hopes for this place, but sadly we wouldn't return.
I've never felt the need to add a bad review ever before, but it absolutely reunited my daughters birthday for us.
